New launch for BIG MAX
Introducing the Navigator Quad Gyro
Words: John Dean
BIG MAX is set to introduce the Navigator Quad Gyro to its electric trolley range.
The remote control Navigator completes the Quad series of electric trolleys and showcases the brand’s unique patented technology.
Remote control isn’t new, but the robust stability delivered by the Navigator is. The lead technology, as the name suggests, is the patented Gyro anti-deviation system.
Quite simply, the Navigator cannot be knocked off course. Direct it over a bump in the course - it rights itself, steer it across a hill - it keeps straight in line, give it a kick and it’ll still return to its original line. The Gyro technology gives the remote user peace of mind that the Navigator will stay on track whatever the terrain.
The stability doesn’t end there. The Navigator Quad Gyro features 4 wheels, with the front two benefitting from 360-degree rotation. This gives ‘on the spot’ manoeuvrability while minimising the stress on the body of the trolley that occurs when turning with a static third wheel.
BIG MAX has even added a 5th wheel for when the terrain is really hilly, allowing the Navigator to be remotely driven up the steepest of hills without fear of it toppling over backwards. The 4-way remote control, with lock function to avoid any pocket mishaps, is simple and intuitive but even if you do steer a little off course, the unique design and technology in the trolley will help you get right back on course.
Twin 230w motors combine with a 12v lithium battery as standard to deliver all the power required to tackle the toughest terrain. Height adjustable handle and adjustable brackets offer custom options for a golfer and their gear while clever touches such as an integrated compartment for a solar charging system (sold separately) for any golfing gadgets and gps holder with in-built re-charging cable, provide luxury touches expected with a premium product such as this.
A colour display with variable speed setting and battery level indicator finish off the soft rubber handle area. At just 700 x 575 x 320mm folded the Navigator is compact enough to fit in virtually any car boot with a full golf bag and where necessary, all four wheels have quick release function.
There is no doubt that a remote control electric trolley is a luxury item designed to be great fun on the course; and the Navigator Quad Gyro delivers that in spades. It is quick, fun and powerful and the four-way remote control is easy to use.
