Sun Mountain Launches Three-In-One Golf Trolley

Sun Mountain, the No.1 premium golf bag brand, has added to its impressive list of ‘industry firsts’ with the launch of the first ever model to combine a trolley, bag and seat in one compact unit.
The three-wheeled Sun Mountain Combo Cart is designed for golfers who would prefer the convenience of keeping their clubs with the trolley and storing at the clubhouse or together in the car boot. Made from lightweight aluminium, the Combo Cart boasts an extremely strong frame that supports the bag and seat with body weight, whilst maintaining a streamlined trolley that takes up no more space than a regular Tour bag when folded.
Sun Mountain – which launched the first stand bag in 1986 and the first waterproof bag in 2007 – has created an innovative design that allows golfers to fold down the unit easily, with the front wheel going under the bag between the rear wheels and the handle down the back of the bag. The rear wheels then slide inwards to produce an impressively sleek unit.
“When folded, the Combo Cart stands up like a normal golf bag and takes up less than half the room normally required to store the trolley and bag separately,” said Seth Enes, Sun Mountain Chief Designer. “It’s very easy to put into action too – golfers just have to pull the bottom wheel out, release the rear wheels and set the handle height at a comfortable height. Then you’re ready to go!
“Our R&D team has worked hard to come up with a design that allows for the unit to fold up neatly, but also be strong enough to hold the weight of a person when they want to sit down during their round,” he added.
The built-in padded seat has been designed to accommodate a range of body sizes and comes complete with back pad to offer maximum comfort. It folds up flat to the side of the bag to keep the overall unit streamlined on the course and in storage.
A 14-way top with full-length club dividers is also on offer, as are eight pockets, including a large compartment for clothing, a velour-lined pocket for valuables and a beverage pouch.
The two rear wheels and the smaller front wheel of the Combo Cart are made from a synthetic compound that promotes a smoother roll, while a foot-operated brake enables the golfer to park the trolley on the most uneven of terrains.
The Sun Mountain Combo Cart comes in five different colour options – Black/Silver/Red, Black/Orange, Black/Lime, Black and ladies White/Pink/Black – at a RRP of £399. For more information, go to www.brandfusionltd.co.uk
