Stewart Golfs X9 har regerat som follow-elvagn ett bra tag, men har nu fått uppföljare såväl i form av Q Follow som den nyligen lanserade X10.
X10 är till skillnad från Q Follow kanske mer av en facelift än en mer revolutionerande uppföljare på samma sätt som Q Follow. Den har samma format som X9 Follow, men är försedd med Stewarts nya, mer effektiva EcoDrive-motorteknik.
British trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has announced that its iconic X Series has undergone some significant ‘under the skin’ improvements and will be now be badged as the X10.
Originally launched to critical acclaim as the X1 Remote in 2003, the company has constantly evolved the product, with X3, X5 and X7 models before the groundbreaking X9 Follow was released in 2014.
Managing Director David Funnell said, “As a company lead by engineers, it’s in our DNA to constantly develop and improve our machines. The X Series has been a fixture of our product range since day one and it remains integral to the business.”
The X10 will be available in Follow and Remote versions. Both benefit from the same EcoDrive motor technology that was launched with the Q Follow, meaning they are up to 40% more efficient than the outgoing version. This means that the X10 battery will give users 40% more golf than previous versions for each charge.
In addition the X10 benefits from the latest electronics system that is now manufactured in Great Britain after being ‘re-shored’ from Europe last year. The X10 Follow features the latest seventh generation of Stewart Golf’s proprietary Follow system, featuring dedicated electronic calibration which results in the most accurate and reliable Follow experience to date. A new electronics assembly area at the SG factory ensures each handset is optimised and matched to the trolley’s main electronics system using a bespoke autotuning system.
CEO Mark Stewart added, “Even after a very successful launch of the Q Follow, sales of the X Series have remained strong. In the refreshed X Series and new Q Series electric models, and the R Series Push, Stewart Golf has a strong product line up for 2021 and beyond.”
Stewart Golf is in the process of expanding their capacity in anticipation of further growth, after almost doubling turnover in 2020. As well as almost doubling the number of staff at the company, they are also adding a futher 3,500sqft of floor space. This will allow the creation of dedicated Q, X and R Series production lines as well as a second electronics assembly area to keep up with increased demand.
