GLOUCESTER, U.K. – World-renowned golf trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has announced a brand-new model to join its award-winning electric cart fleet–the APEX Remote—what the company is calling the “ultimate remote machine,” giving golfers total control of their trolleys from up to 100 yards away.
Stewart Golf manufactures the world’s most advanced, remote-controlled golf carts and is a pioneer in follow technologies, many of which have been incorporated into the APEX Remote. A world first in golf—Active Terrain Control (ATC)—is a sophisticated operating system that gives the user ultimate control of their trolley on any course, no matter how challenging its landscape and is the hallmark of the APEX.
ATC allows APEX to automatically redistribute power independently between twin super-charged motors depending on elevation grades. Unlike basic downhill braking, ATC keeps the APEX travelling at a desired speed and direction—uphill, downhill, and on side slopes.
The innovative ATC system is powered by the new AP1 Cortex Microchip, which monitors power requirements from each motor up to 1,000 times per second. This new system also adjusts to different golf bags, allowing smoother response when holding a lightweight bag.
The APEX also features Stewart Golf’s innovative integrated stabilizer, which automatically deploys and retracts when the APEX is opened or closed. As the APEX approaches a gradient, the stabilizer tilts back and continues driving up that hill.
In the APEX, Stewart Golf debuts the longest range in the trolley market. Its second-generation SmartPower Lithium battery now provides enough power for 27 or 45 holes of operation. The plug-and-play battery offers users the ability to monitor usage and capacity in real time using the free Stewart Golf smartphone app.
Other ease-of-use features include ultra-compact folding for easy storage and transport, with a built-in handle that allows for one-handed lifting. New 5S wheels provide increased traction for improved handling, while giving the APEX an eye-catching new look.
The APEX Remote will sell alongside the successful Q Follow and the iconic X10 trolleys, offering customers a choice between three models.
At launch, the trolley will retail from $1899 for either the Black or Carbon Edition. Every new APEX Remote comes with Stewart’s industry-first, 100-hole money-back guarantee, offering golfers the chance to experience a Stewart dream machine completely risk free.
“Our development team has worked tirelessly to provide golfers with a distinctive, innovative remote trolley that truly enhances their game and helps us reach our goal to change how the world plays golf,” says Mark Stewart, CEO of Stewart Golf. “With the forward-thinking technology applied to the APEX, we believe we have a machine that not only looks fantastic, but performs at a level that sets itself apart from anything else out there.”
