The golf bag has been around for almost as long as the ancient game itself. It sure gets the job done. But it shouldn't be the only option to haul around your golf gear. We invite you to "think outside the bag" and let Transrover show you a smarter alternative.
It's not just a bag or a pushcart. Transrover's all-in-one design offers a smarter alternative by combining the best of both worlds...and then some!
Transrover folds up smaller than the average golf bag, allowing you to easily strap it onto any riding cart.
It also comes with a built-in storage compartment that holds a six-pack in a fully insulated cooler bag.
Has the design been finalized?
We're still in the process of fine-tuning mechanical and aesthetics elements. While material cost is an important factor, our priority is quality first.
Does it come with a shoulder strap?
That is one feature we will not have on Transrover. It only takes seconds to fold and unfold the cart. You can push it instead. Imagine never having to carry the golf bag over your shoulder again. EVER. It does comes with two side handles at the top for easy handling.
How much does Transrover weigh?
Depending on the final components and selection of materials, Transrover is expected to be around 20 pounds. Pre-loaded with bag attached.
When and where can I purchase?
You can buy it directly on Kickstarter.com immediately after we launch. If all goes as planned, we're on pace to launch in early summer, 2018. International shipping will be available in select countries including but not limited to Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Germany, France, England, Denmark, South Africa, Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, and Japan. Please send us a comment if you wish to include your destination to the list.
How much does Transrover cost?
We're in the final phase of material and vendor selections. Ultimately, this will be the main driving force for determining our retail price. The goal is to keep costs down while not compromising on quality and material. We anticipate the price to be around the cost of a good bag and pushcart, combined.
Is there room for a sweater or rain gear?
Yes, you can either strap it on either side of Transrover using the elastic straps. We recommend this because you will want to hang up your wet gear out after the round. Many golfers store it in the full length pockets and forget them for days. Bad news for the wet rain gear.
Is there room for an umbrella holder? How about stowing it when not in use?
It does have an umbrella mount at the very end of the pushbar, the highest point in the cart for clearance when walking. When not in use, the umbrella can be stowed on the side of of the golf bag using the strap system.
Can the club slots accommodate larger grips for golfers with arthritis?
Unfortunately, clubs with larger grips such as the Jumbo Max that measures 1.5” in diameter will not fit. Each slot can only accommodate standard to oversize grips measuring up to 1.25”. The putter slot can store a grip up to 1.7", which is the largest grip available in the market.
Are the club slots individually divided?
We went above and beyond the traditional full length dividers as used in most golf bags. Each slot is its own compartment. Your clubs will slide in at ease. The integrated cradling system will hold each club in place, preventing them from rattling against each other. Please note that the putter will not be cradled as it comes in many different shape and sizes.
Will there be a battery powered model?
Not yet. We get this question a lot from our subscribers. Could be something we will look into down the road. Keep in mind, with Transrover's all-in-one design, it is extremely light and responsive compared to anything out there. Maneuvering it around the golf course is a walk in the park.
Can I travel with it?
Yes. We're in the process of making our own travel hardcase for Transrover. Will do our best to make it available when we launch. Most oversized third party travel case will work just fine.
We're gathering emails and will keep you posted with project updates & launch info. Rest assure, we will not send it to spammers. We don't like them either.
