The golf trolley market has a new contender in the ranks, as Netherlands-based brand Kaddey brings the stylish, functional and energy-saving Kaddey Switch product to the wider European marketplace after operating a highly-successful direct to consumer business in their Dutch homeland for the last 12 months.
The new Kaddey Switch has been innovated to change the way golfers use a trolley, offering players the opportunity to effortlessly shift between pushing downhill or while on the fairway, to pulling uphill or through the rough. Kaddey products are developed to ‘Make Your Day’, and the Switch is at the forefront of that brand ethos.
It’s all made possible by a game-enhancing two-wheel design that has been created to save you energy during your round. Traditional two-wheel models featured small wheels, and were built to make pulling the only option, and the more modern three-wheel trolleys are designed only to be pushed – the Switch offers you the perfect balance of both methods, and the two XL wheels make it effortless to dynamically manoeuvre, dependent on the scenario.
The Switch has been designed to work with the majority of golf bags and fits easily into the trunk of your car with the easy-to-remove wheels taken off the frame. Assembly and disassembly take a matter of seconds; however the trolley has been cleverly engineered so that golfers can leave their bag attached to it, making your golfing life just that bit easier and more convenient.
The Switch – which is constructed from lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminium in either a black or white frame – weighs just 4kg with the wheels removed, and 6.8kg with them attached – most other non-electric trolleys tip the scales at over 8kg. Golfers can select one of nine brightly coloured hubcaps to give their Switch a touch of personality, style and fun.
The prestigious 2021 Red Dot Design Awards – an annual competition where innovative products and concepts are judged – awarded the Kaddey Switch a Red Dot for Product Design, noting ‘The Kaddey Switch is a clever combination of stylish design and sophisticated function. Its easy manoeuvrability is just as impressive as its stylish aesthetic combined in this golf trolley. The quality and presentation is also exceptional.’
The distinctive Red Dot is an internationally established badge of honour, one of the most sought-after seals of approval for world class design with previous winners coming from brands including Apple, Nike and BMW. The Switch saw off stiff competition from more than 18,000 entries across 80 countries.
‘Kaddey products are developed with the principle that everything should be as simple as possible. The use, the materials, the shape and the applications. We believe that perfection is not achieved when there is still something to add, but when nothing can be left out. In short: Less is more,’ said Nick van der Plaat, one of the co-founders of the Kaddey brand.
‘Once golfers find the balance position of the Switch when they’re using it, we are confident they’ll never want to use anything else and will switch between pushing and pulling without thinking about it. This makes your walk more comfortable and relaxing, allowing you to concentrate on the most important thing – your golf game,’ he added.
