Improving uphill performance of the MGI Zip Navigator AT


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I have a MGI Zip Navigator AT that I bought at Costco.  I have about 30 rounds with it and I love it.  My only complaint is how it handles uphill grades.  It pops wheelies frequently and will occasionally tip over backwards.  I've extended the Wheelie bar and that helps some.  I play on a hilly WV golf course so there is no avoiding some hill climbs.  I've thought about adding some ballast weight to the bottom of my golf bag.  Has anyone else had this problem and how did you improve it?

I have the same challenge w my Alphard eWheels, attached to my BagBoy Quad. Lots of wheelies...  everything is a little op heavy. I too have thought about adding “ballast” but I’m not sure how I’d attach it.  I do t want it in the bag, but have pondered attaching something to the front bar of the cart, or where the bottom of the bag rests against the bar.   I’m just not sure how much I’d need. Other consideration - does the extra weight just sap the battery more? More difficult to go up hill? Hmmm, sounds like a project to get serious about and work on. I’ve tipped the cart a few too many times when I wasn’t close enough to grab the handle.
