It was a hat-trick of wins when the latest version of the Motocaddy S1 – introduced in Marchwas voted ‘Trolley of the Year’ at the 2016 Foremost Golf Industry Awards last week. Previous versions of the evergreen entry-level S1 model had won the same title in 2014 and 2015.

This year’s award from more than 950 Foremost Golf members follows record sales figures for the S1this year – accounting for more than a third (38%) of all electric trolleys sold in the UK between March and October*. More than 90% of these sales have been with a Lithium battery.

“We’re delighted to win this award with the S1 for a third consecutive year,” said Sales Director Neil Parker. “And we’re also extremely grateful for the fact that Motocaddy models received more than 80% of votes in the trolley category from our valued retail partners. It spurs us on to introduce more product innovations and offer even better service in the future,” he added.

The S1’s unprecedented share of the market for a single model equates to nearly twice as many sales as the next best-selling trolley in the domestic market and has helped Motocaddy extend its market share to 64%, or almost two-thirds of all powered trolley units sold in the UK so far this year.

Motocaddy products made up three of the four shortlisted nominations in the Awards’ trolley category – with the S1 being joined by the S3 PRO and M1 PRO – the latter having previously won the ‘Most Innovative Product’ award in 2013 and 2014.

The new S1 model features a soft-touch ergonomic handle, nine speed settings, low profile quick release wheels and the exclusive QUIKFOLD mechanism to make it easier to assemble and fold down.

Motocaddy Launches Hi-Tech S7 Remote Control Electric Trundler

16 February, 2015 0 comments Leave a comment

New S7 model boasts ‘super intelligent’ hands-free control technology

Motocaddy, the market-leading electric golf trolley brand, has launched its first remote control model boasting one of the most sophisticated guidance systems on the powered trolley market.

The innovative S7 REMOTE – which features the same frame design as the award-winning S-Series range – 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. As well as the dual-pressure directional buttons, 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.  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.

Clever electronics also allow the golfer to switch between the remote function and manual control mode by holding down the on/off button for three seconds.

In addition to its impressive remote control features, the S7 REMOTE also includes the brand’s patented USB charging port to charge GPS devices from the battery, plus a speed indicator and battery meter.

The S7 REMOTE has the added bonus of incorporating the two standout features from the 2014 range - QUIKFOLD and EASILOCKTM. One of the easiest assembly mechanisms on the market, QUIKFOLD allows golfers to fold or unfold the trolley in as little as five seconds thanks to a simple sliding catch; while the EASILOCKTM bag-to-trolley connection system removes the need for a lower bag strap, thanks to two holes on the S7’s bag support aligned with two removable locking pins on the base of any of the latest Motocaddy bags.

The new S7 REMOTE trolley (RRP $2,499) comes with a Motocaddy 20ah Lithium battery suitable for 18+ holes on a dual-motored model and will be available from April 2015 in black and alpine to follow in July 2015.
