ORLANDO, Fla. – Sun Mountain, which began making push carts in 1999, is ready to launch its two latest full-featured offerings that promise easy walking, plenty of accessories and easy folding for storage.
The Star Cart and Combo, both expected to become available this July, are part of Sun Mountain’s “new cart generation” and target the need for a full-featured push-cart with a focus on compactness. Prototypes of each cart were displayed on the floor at the PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Center.
The Star Cart includes a lot of features from Sun Mountain’s Speed Cart SV1, including no-maintenance foam tires and a variety of handle positions, and it adds many new features such as a dual-front tires for stability and a pivoting scoreboard for writing. Made of durable aluminum die-cast parts, the Star Cart also features a precise and compact folding design. It weighs 18 pounds, and when folded it’s just 11.5 inches by 14 inches by 24 inches.
“The Star Cart is designed for the golfer that views space as a premium,” said Steven Snyders of Sublime Public Relations, which handles marketing for Sun Mountain. “It can be folded up so that it can be transported in smalls cars and stored in small areas.”
The Star Cart comes in gunmetal/orange, black matte and silver/gold and will sell for $259.99.
The Combo includes both golf bag and push-cart features, including full-length club dividers, a variety of pockets, three-wheel design and a built-in seat.
It can fold up to fit into a trunk or it can be stored vertically. When folded upright its base is just 16 inches by 10 inches.
“It’s perfect for the golfer who plays the same course all the time,” Snyders said.
The Combo comes in white/pink/black, black/orange and black lime, and will sell for $399.99.
