Reviews of Sun Mountain Speed Carts

By Lyle@Nymble

Specs

The Sun Mountain Speed Card V1 is a three-wheeled, lightweight, aluminum frame push cart featuring a patented folding design that allows for easy storage and transportation. The 2009 version of the cart features solid, foam, bicycle-style wheels. Front wheel alignment is adjustable. The push handle is foam-padded with a brake and a mount for an umbrella holder. The bag rests do not require straps. A padded valuables tray is held closed with a magnetic fastener and features an elastic scorecard holder.

Perks

The cart's bicycle-style wheels roll freely on ball-bearing hubs making the weight of the golf bag it carries almost irrelevant. The convenience features, including the padded valuables tray, mesh head cover tray and mount for an open umbrella make using this cart almost like having your own caddie. This is a perfect option for golfers, particularly public links golfers, who still like to walk but can't or don't want to carry their own bag.

Sacrifices

At a retail price of about $200, the Speed Cart V1 (price on the Speed Cart V2 is closer to $270), is a commitment. It's durable structure, however, ensures the price will adjust over time. While you can walk directly across each green as a carrier, the card requires you to walk around each green adding a bit of yardage. The Speed Cart's easy rolling nature, however, keeps the effort quite easy.

Bottom Line

An outstanding option for walkers who can't or don't want to carry their own bag anymore or riders who only ride because they don't want to wrestle with pull carts. Brings back a bit of the caddie experience.
