The GoKart Electric golf trolley is certainly different.
We like the quirky design and the colour options and the fact that it folds down much smaller than most other trolleys. You can see a lot of thought has gone into the design. It folds out easily and all you have to do once that is done is to click the 18 or 36 hole battery in place and you are ready to go.
No wires to connect, just the elastic bag strap at the bottom (which has to be the way to do this) and the adjustable fabric strap at the top.
On the move the GoKart is one of the easiest trolleys we have tested to control with either hand. The ergonomic handle is very comfortable and you have one switch to turn on and off and a roller to control the speed which could not be easier to use.
Because the frame is essentially plastic, it is much lighter than a metal frame trolley and this makes it very easy to manoeuvre and results in less drain on the battery. The power to weight ratio means the motor has plenty of oomph to get you moving without any power delay. The slight downside to this is that if you are going downhill and then turn a corner too quickly the inside rear wheel may lift off the ground more easily than other trolleys, but take it easy and it won't turn over.
The GoKart can easily fit any size of bag up to a tour bag and the scorecard, pencil, tee and ball holders build into the handle are a clever touch and perfect for this end of the market.
The plastic looks may put some off but it looks a lot better with a bag on than off and the effortless ease of use and unique styling more than makes up for this. If you want a simple stylish trolley to just go forward for a good price then this is the one for you.
The only downside we found was the high pitched whine from the motor, especially at lower speeds, which may not bother some, but was quite annoying to us and could put other golfers off as you are going past while they are playing.
It's a real shame as otherwise the GoKart is one of the best electric golf trolleys we have tested.
