KEY TECH S1 up­dated with down­hill speed con­trol and elec­tronic park­ing brake Golfers who tend to play on hilly cour­ses HOW MUCH £499.99 to £549.99 AIMED AT

Golf Monthly - - Rory Mcilroy -

Keen to find ways to make its of­fer­ings more prac­ti­cal and less in­tru­sive on your round, Mo­to­caddy has in­tro­duced an ad­vanced ver­sion of its pop­u­lar S1 model, which will fea­ture down­hill speed con­trol and an elec­tronic park­ing brake.

The chief up­date means it can now main­tain a con­stant speed while mov­ing down a gra­di­ent. This works thanks to a sin­gle mo­tor that au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs the trol­ley’s power out­put to con­trol the rate of de­scent, mean­ing the user does not have to do any­thing.

In real terms, it means you won’t find your­self pulling on the han­dle to stop your trol­ley run­ning away down­hill, nor will you need to slow down the speed set­ting as you ap­proach a down­hill slope.

A new park­ing brake has also been in­tro­duced, which holds it in po­si­tion on even the steep­est of gra­di­ents.

As well as the ob­vi­ous ad­van­tages of ease of use and con­trol on un­du­lat­ing cour­ses, the S1 DHC is sig­nif­i­cantly lighter than pre­vi­ous dual-mo­tored models that have boasted sim­i­lar func­tion­al­ity, mak­ing it eas­ier to trans­port.

The S1 DHC is only avail­able with a lithium bat­tery at £499.99 for the stan­dard ver­sion, or £549.99 for the ex­tended lithium ver­sion.
