Sun Mountain Speed Cart GT Review

Reviewing the newest push cart offering from Sun Mountain.

Speed Cart GT HeroWhen I got the notification about a Sun Mountain push cart available for review, I jumped at it. The brake on my old Bag Boy cart was permanently stuck, and I had a long summer of men’s league matches ahead of me. I knew I’d want the extra convenience and energy that comes with not having to lug my stand bag around.

The Speed Cart GT is firmly at the top of Sun Mountain’s push cart line. It’s light, it folds up small, and it’s full of space to put your stuff. It also costs an enticing $210.

Is it worth it?

Let’s find out.
