The Star – or (Product of) Applied Arts for the golf course

  • The founder of a new product category

    TiCad's success story really began with the launch of the TiCad Star in 1991. At the time, this exquisite designer trolley took the market by storm. In 2003, the Star's unique qualities found official recognition when it was designated a "Product of Applied Arts" and exhibited at a number of renown museums across Europe. True to its name, the Star has lost none of its tremendous appeal but has since been able to add to its credentials as the true and legendary founder of the titanium class of golf trolleys. Its timeless elegance and brilliant design make this push/pull trolley not only perfect in form and design, but also near indestructible.

     

  • Three-spoke TiTec titanium wheels – a Star trademark

    Our TiTec titanium wheels were also specially developed for the TiCad Star and continue to be produced by hand from titanium sheets and forged into the typical three-spoke wheels that have become one of TiCad's trademarks – a symbol of our guiding principle.
    TiTec wheels do not feature any hollow areas between their rim and tyre, which makes them very low-wear. The bearing bodies of the hubs of the wheels are made of VA steel and are equipped with high-quality ball bearings. No little surprise then that our TiCad Stars moves that smooth!

  • High-end design

    The TiCad Star's superior design has earned it a number of awards over the years. These include its designation as a "Product of Applied Arts" in 2003, as well as the "German Industry Innovation Award", which it received as far back as 1991, and being ranked amongst the top ten iF "Award for good industrial design" winners in 1992.

     

  • For our converted fans – the 'paper clip'

    One of the most appreciated of the many features that make the TiCad Star stand out is the fact that it can be easily and quickly folded to a pack size of just 66 x 36 x 10 cm. This ability earned it the nickname 'paper clip' and a place in many sports car owners' hearts over the years. This unique titanium trolley is indeed a star and continues to be a highly valued member of the TiCad range. "The TiCad Star has continued to be one of our most popular golf trolleys and has consistently retained its value, even after all these years", as Auer-Power Golfshop's product brochure describes our Star.

     

  • How to pack a Star in style

    Every TiCad Star requires appropriate packaging, which is why we supply them with a custom-made, sturdy transport bag. When folded and stowed inside its bag, a TiCad Star will just about measure 70 x 36 x 12 cm. When it comes to accessories, the Star again takes the minimalist approach of less being more, while each of its accessories is designed with maximum convenience and practicality in mind.

     

The first ever golf titan and a genuine Star.


Whenever there is a mention of TiCad, it is inevitably an image of the TiCad Star that will be conjured up. Just as so many other of the world's top companies, TiCad is yet another one that started off in a garage. And did so with this very trolley, built by hand by our company founder Ludwig Hentschel, thereby marking the birth of a completely new category of trolley – the titanium class.

Designated a "Product of Applied Arts", the Star has already featured in many of the top European design museums. The TiCad Star's design is protected by copyright and it not only was the world's first titanium, but also the world's first series-produced titanium golf trolley. As such, it has not only attained iconic status, but is considered a benchmark by many golfers across the world. It's frame squarely traces an asymmetrical outline that connects ground with space, solidly brought into focus by the matt shine of its gleaming titanium exterior. The perfectly shaped, hand-welded titanium wheels provide a concentrated design contrast and are bold in their statement of this elegant and light looking trolley's capacity for hard work and for ferrying heavy loads across all kinds of terrain. That said, the TiCad Star requires little explanation to highlight the fact that it is indeed a very special golf trolley that has been delighting generations of golfers over the years.
Minimalist and suitable for use as both a push and pull trolley, the Star continues to be one of the most popular of the trolleys in TiCad's range. Its ingeniously simple folding mechanism and sports car-friendly boot pack size have furthermore earned it the nickname 'paper clip'. Its outstanding high quality has long since become legendary by way of further testimony that the TiCad Star simply is and continues to be a star – and that's without any pretensions.

TiCad Star Accessories

Universal smartphone holder

Our new universal TiCad holder for smartphones is suitable for use with nearly any cell phone and can be easily and comfortably fastened to your TiCad. The holder can be adjusted to an angle that works best for you and the rubber holder, which will hold your phone by its four corners, perfectly fits around nearly every type of device and keep a secure grip of your phone no matter the terrain. The contact area, which is made of domed TiCad design polyurethane resin, provides extra protection. This ensures that your device will be perfectly protected from any scratches.
When it comes to GPS', we still recommend to our customers to attach them using their own holders, because GPS' tend to be heavier and need to be fitted higher than phones and will only be truly secure in GPS-specific cradles.

Custom-made leather handles – elegance in action

The premium-quality leather for our handles is sourced from German cattle and hand-selected by our expert internal TiCad leather production workshop staff. Once processed and dyed, these hides are turned into handle covers by hand using a range of traditional leather working methods that systematically avoid the use of machines as much as possible. The results are unique, weather resistant, extremely strong, durable and – above all – heavenly soft leather handles for our trolleys.

TiCad stopped fitting its trolleys with standard leather handles – as customary in the industry – in 2016. That's because, that year, we acquired and integrated our long-term leather manufacturing partner Richard Kräuter from Heusenstamm in Germany into our company. This in turn put us in a position not only to ensure that our leather handles continue to be of a unique quality, but also to offer them in a wide range of variations.

Never been able to choose a colour of your choice for your trolley's handle and yarn before? Well, that's about to be a thing of the past! Because, as of today, TiCads' are available with any colour handles you desire.

This also applies to very special leather colours used in combination with unusual yarn colours. Give your imagination free reign and let us know your preferred colour combination! Artisan workmanship - truly unique products.
If you would like your golf trolley to be a genuine one of a kind, why not simply get in touch and let us help you choose your perfect colour combination. TiCad – fully in control, especially when it comes to special customisation requests.

 

99.- EUR (RRP incl. VAT) Customised leather handle
