The Austrian tour professional Markus Brier was spotted on the European Tour with the prototype of an e-trolley from the leading European trolley manufacturer BIG MAX.
At the Austrian Open and the Euram Bank Open, which were played as part of the European Tour, it was assumed that players would have to play without their caddies. It is therefore not surprising that it was the Austrian trolley and bag specialist BIG MAX who helped compatriot Brier and his bag to be able to play the tour without any additional effort.
“It was a real honor to play the first two tournaments of the European Tour in Austria. And when I realized that I wouldn't have a caddy, I was very relieved to hear that I would be able to try out the latest e-technology from an Austrian cult brand to complete the tour," said Brier, commenting on his top 50 result at the Euram Bank Open. "The BIG MAX trolley was very easy to use and looked very good - no one could believe that it was actually an electric trolley. It rained heavily for 8 holes at the Austrian Open and Adamstal is such a difficult course "My playing partner's car battery died after 14 holes, but the BIG MAX just kept going. It exceeded all my expectations and the umbrella holder was a lifesaver!"
The e-LITE 4 is an ultra-compact electric golf trolley that hides its working mechanisms in the cart body. Weighing just 6kg, the minimalist design made from powder-coated aluminum features an ergonomic ring control mechanism on the handle that drives a whisper-quiet, powerful motor. With practical features such as automatic descent braking, remote control option and adjustable mounts for a tour bag, the unique e LITE series will retail for around EUR 2,200 and shake up the premium trolley market later this year. Thomas Reiter , owner of BIG MAX , was happy for the brand after the successful tour debut: “It has never happened before that trolleys have been used on the European Tour. We are very pleased that we were able to present our e-LITE 4 prototype there. We took two years to develop the e LITE series and are now ready to start. Markus is a golf legend in Austria and plays on the best courses in the country. We are therefore very happy that the world can get its first look at one of the best trolleys that Austria has to offer.”
