If you are looking for a compact and lightweight golf push cart, then let us bring to your attention the Rovic RV1C golf cart by Clicgear.
Clicgear sells very solid golf carts, albeit for steeper prices. However, many golfers have voted for Clicgear golf carts with their money and positive reviews, and perhaps the Rovic RV1C is no exception.
Features: Clicgear Rovic RV1C Review
And to find out whether this golf cart is the right one for you, let’s have a look at it in our Clicgear Rovic RV1C review!
Lightweight & compact build
The key benefit of the Rovic RV1C golf push cart is its compactness and lightweight.
This golf cart weighs around 17 pounds, which is about 1 pound lighter than you’d usually see in other golf carts. The one pound may not be much, but it will matter to some people.
The compactness of this golf cart is also remarkable, but it’s actually a double-edged benefit. On one hand, you are getting a push cart that’s smaller than many other golf push carts designed for full-size bags. This is great if you don’t have enough storage area at home or in your car.
On the other hand, taller golfers may find that this golf cart is too short for them, even with the handle extended all the way up. The Rovic RV1C thus seems to be a better option for shorter golfers, while others should have a look at something like the Clicgear Model 3.5+ or the CaddyTek Caddylite EZ V8.
Like any other Clicgear golf cart, the RV1C is foldable. When folded, it measures 13 x 15 x 24 inches which, weirdly enough, is also the size of the bigger Model 3.5+ golf cart when folded.
Not that 13 x 15 x 24 inches is big – it’s very solid by push golf cart standards. But we feel that Clicgear could have made this golf cart a little bit more compact given that it’s not as large as the Model 3.5+. But again, the folded dimensions of this golf cart are great and should work for those who are concerned with space-efficiency.
Adjustable bag mounts
The Rovic RV1C golf push cart is designed for full-size bags, but it does allow some variety thanks to its adjustable bag mounts.
A thing you should know about with the mounts is that there seem to be two variants of RV1C – one with straps similar to those in the Model 3.5+ and another with gray plastic-like straps. The plastic straps appear a bit flimsy to us, so we suggest that you go for the options with the seemingly more high-quality Model 3.5+ straps.
The wheels in this golf cart are like in most other push carts on the market. They are airless plastic wheels that require no maintenance other than cleaning, and they should also last a very long time given that you handle them properly.
With that being said, the front wheel of the RV1C golf cart is one of this cart’s downsides – it’s smaller than in regular-size carts where the front wheel is sized exactly like the rear wheels. The small size of the front wheel could mean decreased stability, which is a thing to keep in mind.
The Rovic RV1C golf cart has a handbrake system similar to that on other Clicgear golf carts. The handbrake is engaged in its upper position and disengaged in the lower. With the handbrake on, this golf cart should be able to stay in place without user input, unless on very sloped surfaces.
Decent storage capacity
The storage capacity of the RV1C golf cart is decent – it has a full-size console that accommodates tees, golf balls, and a scorecard with a pencil. Not only that, but Clicgear includes an umbrella mount and a standard cup holder with this push cart.
One thing we also wish this push cart had is a mesh pocket under the console, which is a common feature in many golf carts. The mesh pocket isn’t a must-have, but it would increase the storage capacity of this golf cart a bit.
And to close our Clicgear Rovic RV1C review, let’s go over this golf cart’s customizability.
The Rovic RV1C golf cart has 2 accessory tabs that accept all Clicgear accessories, including the XL bottle holder, seat, cooler bag, and a few other goodies. The RV1C golf cart is less versatile than the Model 3.5+ with its 4 tabs, but it’s still better than many other golf carts on the market.
With that being said, the Rovic RV1C shares a downside with the Model 3.5+ cart – the expensiveness. The RV1C is cheaper than the 3.5+, but it’s not a budget cart by any means, especially if you throw in some accessories.

Frequently Asked Questions

As mentioned in our Clicgear Rovic RV1C review, this golf cart has a smaller frame, and it should be good for children.

Yes, this push cart shouldn’t have problems with most stand bags since it’s designed for full-size bags.
