KLVN Cart Golf Bag Wins Spark Award

Revolutionary New Golf Bag Receives Acclaim for Product Design


Lake Zurich, IL — June 17, 2016— Product Development Technologies (PDT) and KLVN Golf are proud to announce that the KLVN Golf Bag, a revolutionary cart golf bag that features a deployable carry bag, won the Bronze award at the 10th anniversary Spark awards.


The KLVN bag is the world’s most versatile golf bag, featuring a durable cart bag with a deployable lightweight carry bag in a single, streamlined design. Using the KLVN bag, golfers can ride with the cart bag and eject a lightweight carry bag with a simple push of a button, giving them complete flexibility to manage their golf game, their way. The KLVN bag has a multi-point cart strap system, ensuring the bag and clubs remain secure and upright while riding. “OneTouch” removable, customizable pockets allow golfers to completely change the look and functionality of the bags to match their personal style and golfing needs.


“After years of painstaking design and rigorous prototyping, we believe we’ve created the most versatile golf bag ever made,” said Ted Foxman, CEO of KLVN.  “Ordinarily, golf bags are designed with one purpose in mind - to carry golf clubs and related accessories. We endeavored to develop a game-changing bag that would allow golfers to manage their games, make better decisions, and free them from the constraints of a bag strapped to the cart.”


PDThad three additional products move on to the finalist round for the Spark Awards: The Gramovox Floating Record Player, Autologic Assist Plus, and West Bend Professional Snowball Machine. This is PDT’s 12th Spark Award since 2009.
