The X9 Follow uses the very latest in Bluetooth technology, as built into billions of products all over the world. Bluetooth provides an extremely stable platform from which to send and receive signals from the trolley to the handset.
Each X9 Follow comes with a handset already 'paired' to one another, meaning that you only have to turn them both on and they will connect automatically. Once the connection is made, it remains connected for the duration of your round. This means that signals are sent instantly and reliably, you won't be waiting for a connection every time.
Rechargeable Lithium Handset
Another convenient feature of the X9 Follow is the new rechargeable handset.
Our engineers have kept the same compact handset case, but integrated a large lithium battery. This is charged via a new port on the right hand side (a charger is supplied). Whilst we recommend that the handset is charged after every round, the lithium battery means that you won't have to replace the handset battery for many years.
Complete Remote Functionality
The X9 Follow also has complete remote control functionality, similar to previous X Series models. This is ideal for when you find yourself in the rough, or when you reach the green and want to send your X9 Follow to the next tee.
From up to 50m you can speed the machine up and down, steer it left or right and stop it using either the orange 'glide stop' or red 'emergency stop' buttons.
If you prefer to have the machine in front of you sometimes, you have the option of setting two 'cruise control' speeds to suit your walking pace.
The X9 Follow will automatically apply a braking force if you slow your pace when going down a hill.
The X Series chassis has been proven to be the most stable on the market after more than a decade of use since the original X1.
As well as a wide rear wheelbase and twin front wheels, the chassis also contains an integrated stabiliser. Should the X9 Follow tip backwards when travelling up hill, it will 'bounce' on the stabiliser until it makes it back on to all 4 wheels. If the ground is damp or wet, the rear wheels may lose traction and you may need to assist from the handle.
V3 Wheel Set
The X9 Follow is supplied as standard with the V3 wheel set.
These wheels were created with the X9 Follow in mind; the lateral tread pattern generating excellent levels of grip that allow the X9 Follow's electronics system to make very fine steering adjustments.
When compared to the previous alloy wheel design, the V3 rear wheels have a flatter profile which increase stability dramatically. Additionally as a set of 4 wheels, weight has been reduced by 30% which increases efficiency and therefore battery life.
The X9 Follow comes complete with the whole host of other features including:
• Towel Clip
• Scorecard Holder & Pencil Clip
• Three golf ball holders
• Four tee holders
• Unique serial number plaque
