Sun Mountain Speed Cart Comparison – V1 vs. v2

Click on picture for enlarged view

A question we hear all the time is which is better, the Sun Mountain V1 or the Sun Mountain V2 speed cart. Since the V2 costs $40.00 more, most people would assume it is better. Well, it may be a better cart (slightly) but we don’t think it is a better value.

Both carts have almost the same features, but the V2 is slightly “beefier” due to the fact that it shares the same frame as Sun Mountain’s E-cart. Other than that, there really isn’t much difference as far as the features are concerned. The new 2008 V1 Speed Cart that recently came to market has all of the features of the V2 – even the adjustable smart brackets.

Unless your golf course has IED’s, and is located in the Baghdad suburbs, we recommend the V1… There is simply no need to pay $40.00 more for a “beefier” cart.

Our rankings:

#1 – Sun Mountain V1 Speed Cart
