The design team at Stewart Golf were given carte blanche to create the F1 Lithium, including all internal systems as well as folding mechanisms and aesthetics.
Lithium Ion Battery:
The new Li-Ion battery is a custom made, 36V pack that is just one-third of the size of the X3R battery, and over 80% lighter at just over 2kg. The battery pack is capable of in excess of 27 holes of golf, however we can only guarantee 18 holes (please see notes on battery consumption)
36 Volt Electronics System
The new system is more efficient, cooler running and better matched to Li-Ion technology than the more conventional 12V system. The F1 Lithium uses an enhanced version of the NASA-derived software that has won the X5 Remote it's enviable reputation.
New Magnesium Alloy Wheels
The all new alloy wheel design features a simplified quick release mechanism and a thick tyre for quiet running on hard surfaces. Production models will also feature a tread for grip on the golf course.
New LCD Screen
The LCD screen on the rear cover shows an accurate battery monitor and other essential messages when necessary, including telling the user when to change their handset battery.
Weights & Measures
The new F1 Lithium weighs just 12kg, with the battery just an additional 2kg. Folded dimentions with the wheels attached are just 66cm (wide), 47cm (high) and 31.9cm (deep). The F1 Lithium stands up straight when folded, making the footprint just one third of the X5 Remote.
Many customers will be pleased to hear that when folded, the F1 chassis is small enough to fit in the front bin of even the smallest Porsche 911 (the 997 Carrera 4S). The F1 chassis and bag will both fit in to the Bentley GTC.
