OVERALL RATING: 93. GRADE: A. Clicgear has updated the design of their cart with the release of the Clicgear 3.0. The 3.0 retains the rugged good looks, solid build and rock-steady performance of the prior version. What’s new is an upgraded brake mechanism and significantly better storage space.

Our only reservations are the complexities of unfolding the Clicgear, which isn’t the most intuitive of processes, and the fact that when it’s folded up, it becomes an awkward-shaped cube.

All in all, the Clicgear 3.0 is a nice improvement to an already excellent product, and definitely one of the top golf push carts on the market.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the wide range of accessories that are available for Clicgear carts. Our favorite was the shoe brush (perfect for scraping off grass and other gunk that clumps on your spikes), but there’s a whole host of nifty add-ons, including a seat, cooler bag, and upgraded umbrella holder with adjustable angle.

Retail price: $229
Availability: Discontinued. Replaced by Clicgear 3.5+

SIZE/WEIGHT

At 19 lbs. (as tested), the weight of the Clicgear 3.0 is a hair more than that of the prior version, and it is at the heavier end of the spectrum among the push carts we tested (compare this to the lightest cart, the Tour Trek Tahoe, at 10.5 lbs.). And it still folds into a bit of an unwieldy block. It’s an improvement on behemoths like the Sun Mountain Speed Cart V1 and V2, but we still found ourselves throwing it into the back seat, rather than spending time rearranging all of the junk that tends to accumulate in the trunk of the car in order to fit both a set of clubs and the Clicgear. Two sets of clubs and two Clicgears is beyond our feeble packing capabilities.

EASE OF SET-UP

Unfolding the Clicgear 3.0 is not the most intuitive process (interestingly, they no longer include an instructional DVD). Clicgear tries to make the 5-step process easier by making the critical knobs and levers bright red, but unless you have a Ph.D in origami, you may do a little bit of head-scratching each time you have to fold or unfold it.

STORAGE/ACCESSORIES

The storage and accessories available on the Clicgear 3.0 include:

We also like the optional shoe brush that clips on to the frame of the cart (available for an additional $9.99). It can occasionally come unclipped if you’re too aggressive in your scrubbing, but is generally extremely useful for getting mud and dirt off of your spikes during a round.

Review of Clicgear 3.0 Golf Push Cart

Click image to enlarge

The Clicgear 3.0 is still the coolest looking push cart on the market. Moving the front wheel lever away from the side of the wheel (as it was on the 2.0) and making it a button on the front takes away the image of a brightly colored brake caliper showing through the wheels of an exotic supercar, but it’s a minor quibble. The Clicgear 3.0 is available in kiwi (light green) black, blue, silver, red, orange, white and yellow. No matter which color you select, the trim color for the wheels, knobs and handles is always red.

VALUE

With a retail price of $229.00, the Clicgear 3.0 is the second most expensive golf push cart among the units we tested. But with a nice feature set, solid fit and finish, and dependable performance on the course, the Clicgear 3.0 provides first-rate value.
