TaylorMade has introduced Kalea, its first women’s-exclusive offering in over a decade.
The set features optimized lofts, low/back CG locations, slot technology in the soles and Kalea SlimTech shafts with smaller tip diameters that help increase launch angle at impact.

All in, Kalea’s premium, attractive design blends with product technology geared specifically for the launch conditions of women golfers.
Kalea is available in thirteen clubs: driver, 3, 5 and 7 fairway woods, 4 & 5 Rescues, 6 & 7 transition irons, 8 & 9 irons, pitching wedge, sand wedge and putter. A Kalea cart bag is also available separately.
Kalea will be sold in an 8-piece combo set (4-5 Rescues, 6-7 Transition irons, 8i – SW Cavity irons). A Kalea driver, fairway metalwoods (3, 3HL, 5, 7) will also be available for purchase individually, as well as a putter and bag. Complementing the release of Kalea golf clubs, TaylorMade has also announced the release of Kalea golf balls, a two-piece ball with a soft cover and low compression, engineered to perform best when played in conjunction Kalea golf clubs.
