Sun Mountain announces introduction of new MCB Micro Cart Bag

MISSOULA, Mont. -- In 2009 Sun Mountain introduced the Micro Cart™, a new-look walking cart sporting four-wheels while folding 25% smaller and weighing 20% less than leading push carts. To kick-off the 2010 catalog, Sun Mountain is announcing the MCB (Micro Cart Bag) designed specifically to fit the Micro Cart and offering a new 15-way top that will appeal to golfers using any cart. The 2010 MCB will be available in mid-September in men's and women's styles with a full-suggested retail of $209. For the retailer nearest you, call 800-227-9224 or visit

MCB has a full complement of features - two of the most noteworthy being a bottom molded specifically to fit securely over the Micro Cart's lower bag rest to minimize bag movement, and the newly designed 15-way top that offers golfers a new way to organize their clubs. Micro Cart users, Sun Mountain Speed Cart® users and any cart golfer can appreciate this new 15-way top offering 4 dividers in the middle for drivers, fairway woods and hybrids, surrounded by 5 slots on either side for irons and wedges, and a putter well up front.

Additional features on MCB include: top with integrated handles for easy loading/unloading, two velour-lined valuables pockets (one sized perfectly for a rangefinder), insulated cooler pouch, 2 full-length clothing pockets, ball pocket with two-way zippers, multiple accessory pockets (all front-facing for accessibility while on cart), quick-release strap, strap pouch in which to secure bag strap when carted, front-mounted umbrella holder, ball liner to precisely mark balls, dual pen holders, and a matching rainhood. Women's MCB offers the same cutting-edge features as the men's MCB while 1" shorter to better fit women's clubs and with a more feminine color palette.

Featuring a lightweight anodized aluminum frame, Micro Cart weighs only 13 lbs. and folds and unfolds to the compact 52 cubic inches in one easy motion. Additional Micro Cart features include a strapless bag bracket and a console with padded valuables tray, ball and tee holders, magnetic scorecard holder, and a drink holder. Micro Cart is available now in four colors (red, black, blue and silver) with a full-suggested retail price of $239.
