Sun Mountain Adds Sizzle With New Micro-Cart® Sport Golf Push Cart

Sun Mountain, the inventors of the first easily collapsible golf push cart, Speed Cart®, continues to update and improve its innovative designs.

Push carts offer an advanced alternative to the traditional pull cart by efficiently transferring energy from the natural walking position to the wheels, thereby reducing fatigue. Golf push carts take advantage of the forward momentum of walking and offer ergonomic handles that reduce the strain on golfers’ shoulder from reaching back for a traditional, two-wheeled pull cart. Further, golf push carts are much better at rolling straight down the fairway than pull carts that are often zigzagging and putting additional strain on the golfer’s shoulders. [Read more…]

Combo Cart

gocartIn 1999 Sun Mountain was at the forefront of the golf push cart revolution with the introduction of Speed Cart. Speed Cart was the first push cart on the market that folded down with no assembly (or disassembly) required and was lightweight and small enough to be transported to and fro the course with ease.

In 2009, Sun Mountain brought additional innovation to the walking cart market with the first four-wheeled golf push cart. Micro-Cart folds 25% smaller and weighs 20% less while still carrying golf bags from the smallest stand bags to the largest cart bags.

For 2013, Sun Mountain is once again introducing a ground-breaking golf walking cart with the golf bag and cart in one – Combo cart. Combo will offer the club and accessory space of a cart bag and the ease and ergonomic benefits of a push cart all in one package. Combo will weigh 18 lbs. and fold down to about the same size as our C-130 cart bag.

Given the integrated nature of the bag and cart, Combo will offer an unheralded degree of stability and will actually weigh less than the combined weight of a cart bag and push cart.

The plan is for a summer 2013 introduction at a retail price of $399.

Look for more news on date of availability as we get closer to summer.

For economic reasons, players on the “Road to the LPGA” typically do not use professional caddies opting instead to carry their own clubs. The ability to use a golf push cart now offers each player another option. [Read more…]
