Review: Sun Mountain Reflex Cart
Folding and unfolding the Sun Mountain Reflex is very easy. There are no twisting parts or complex manuevers that need to be made, just a couple levers are flipped and it opens/closes with easy. You then just re-flip them to lock it in place. The folded size is great because it is different from other carts. It isn’t as boxy as others, but a little longer, flatter and narrower than others which works really great in the back of my MINI Countryman. Any space savings is important to me, even if my car was bigger.
I went with the Charcoal/Red cart as my choice out of the 4 colorways. The others are pretty sharp too, Black, Silver and Black/Lime. I like how they are done with subtle color to make them just pop a little. They all have the same airless tires and combination of metal frame work with plastic levers.
The Sun Mountain Reflex holds the bag nicely and securely in its brackets. Sun Mountain finally listened and gave us a strap back for securing the bag. It is only on the bottom bracket, but still an improvement in my opinion. While their previous bag clamps worked, the new ones have gripper ridges for extra security.
The brake lever is hidden underneath the console nicely so that isn’t in your way when your walking or using it. It is easy to engage/disengage and will hold your cart stopped on a moderate hill. It stops the front wheels from turning. Just make sure to disengage the brake for folding, otherwise the cart won’t fold all the way down.
The beverage holder clips into a slot on the handle and will hold a 20oz bottle nicely. The angle does change depending on how you adjust the handle. It pops off pretty easy so just be careful when folding and unfolding that you don’t lose it.
The Sun Mountain Reflex is a seriously good cart. The many innovative features make it one of the best new carts. If you don’t have a push cart yet, check this one out or if it is time for an upgrade, the Reflex has a whole lot of useful innovations. It folds up super small, yet acts very big when unfolded and rolling down the fairways. It is a new design, but is the same Sun Mountain awesomeness.
