New Single-Rider Golf Cart from Sun Mountain Adds Fun and Speed

Sun Mountain Motor Sports, an affiliate of industry-leading golf bag, golf push cart and golf outerwear company, Sun Mountain Sports, will unveil a new, single-rider, electric golf cart at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show. This new golf cycle, called FinnCycle, promises to add exhilaration and speed up pace of play while being stable and easy to ride. FinnCycle will be sold to golf courses with an innovative revenue-sharing model that reduces the upfront cost to the course. Pre-orders will be taken at the show with product availability in Spring 2019. FinnCycle will be at the PGA Show Demo Day and in Sun Mountain Motor Sports booth #1787.

FinnCycle offers the opportunity to substantially speed up the pace of play by naturally encouraging ready golf with each player driving directly to his/her ball. A sub-two-hour round is within reach.

“Because it’s so unique, people have objections based upon their experience. Instead of debating these concerns, I just ask them to ride it. This new experience speaks for itself, and objections are forgotten”, said Rick Reimers, founder of Sun Mountain Sports and Sun Mountain Motor Sports.

FinnCycle is a two-wheeled cycle with an electric motor and lithium battery offering 36 holes of play on a single charge. The cycle has front and rear suspension for a comfortable ride. The golf bag sits along the center-line of the cycle offering easy club access and stability. Braking is with a hydraulic disc brake.

FinnCycle operates via a proprietary app that unlocks the cycle for use and collects the usage fee in a hassle-free transaction.

FinnCycle will begin arriving at courses in Spring 2019.

Sun Mountain Motor Sports is a new company dedicated to solving golf’s biggest problem: slow play. The company’s new products are designed to make golf fast and fun. The company is actively developing partnerships with golf professionals to change the game. 18 holes in 2 hours or less is the goal. The company’s first offering is a single-rider, two-wheeled cart called FinnCycle. For more information visit www.FinnScooters.com.

    18 in two hours with a full course? having a way to get there faster isn’t gong to change peoples pace of play, especially putting. Hell, there are golf carts now and I still sit there. I don’t like slow play At All, however what is the purpose of speed play at generally 70 to 100 bucks. At ten minutes a hole, which is a good goal, that’s 3 hours of play. The typical golfer is just not that good of a golfer and getting to their ball faster will help but 2 hrs for 18 seems crazy.

      Hi Nick – We hope to have the first shipment in late June. When booking, you book the Riding Fee and then their will be an additional $8 fee to use the FINN.

      At this point, they are only going to be available to rent at the courses. Maybe next year, they will offer for a golfer to purchase on their own

      I hope this helps
