New S7 model boasts ‘super intelligent’ hands-free control technology
Motocaddy has launched its first remote control golf trolley, boasting what it claims is one of the most sophisticated guidance systems on the powered trolley market.
The S7 Remote comes with a dual pressure control system that allows golfers to alter how much the trolley turns to the left or the right, simply by varying the pressure applied to buttons on the handset.
The user can also control the trolley’s speed going forwards or backwards depending on how long they hold the respective buttons down on the remote control device.
To maintain stability in challenging terrain, the S7 incorporates a special mechanism that enables each of the two motors to help compensate for lateral slopes.
It also features a rear anti-tip wheel, as well as a fully-rotating front wheel to allow the trolley to travel smoothly without requiring additional guidance.
The technology involved, particularly in the remote handset, is up there with the most intelligent devices of its kind" A 50 meter cut-out function stops the trolley from going out of range, while a hibernation setting brings it to a halt if the remote hasn’t been touched for more than 45 seconds.
“The S7has been in development for some time because the technology involved, particularly in the remote handset, is up there with the most intelligent devices of its kind,” said Motocaddy chairman, David Wells.
“We’ve responded to consumer demand for a remote control option in our range and the S7 is a distinctly different product for those golfers looking for a reliable hands-free option.”
Motocaddy’s ‘Quikfold’ and ‘Easilock’ assembly systems make a return, allowing golfers to fold or unfold the trolley in as little as five seconds while removing the need for a lower bag strap.
