Forum Member Review: Bag Boy Nitron Cart

The Testing Opportunity

Bag Boy has introduced the Nitron Auto-Open pushcart with its patented nitrogen-powered auto-assist opening mechanism. The Nitron was named the Best Push Cart of 2023, so we couldn’t pass up this unique opportunity to share it with our forum members.

Bag Boy describes the Nitron as “a revolutionary auto-open cart engineered with Nitro Piston technology, transforming from a compact folded cart to open and ready to go in seconds. The nitrogen-powered auto-open creates a simple two-step opening, making opening the cart effortless as the front wheel automatically pops out into place.”

Key features include:

  • Auto-open with Nitro-Piston™ technology
  • Top-Lok® technology, a patented bag-to-cart attachment system
  • Easy one-step open
  • Lightweight frame features a compact fold size for simplified storage and transport
  • Multiple color combinations

MyGolfSpy wanted four testers to test, review and keep the Bag Boy Nitron Auto-Open pushcart. Here is what they had to say.

First Impressions

The testers all agreed that the setup out of the box was very simple. A few parts to lock in and the cart was ready to go.

Tester edingc: “The build quality is impressive. It is obvious this is not a cheaply constructed item. The frame has some weight to it, and the plastic parts are sturdy and solid.”

All testers agreed the patented Nitro-Piston was a great feature with tester Preeway saying, “I was blown away at the piston technology that went into the Nitron design and how easy it is to open and close the cart. My old cart was all about tightening/loosening screws which was extremely tedious and somewhat time consuming. I hated starting and ending each round with the hassle.” 

Testers provided several videos of the ease of setup and breakdown of the Nitron.

Additional Features

Top Lok

There were mixed thoughts on the Top-Lok feature that secures the bag (designed for Top-Lok bags) but Tester Hobert had no issues. “I experienced absolutely no bag twisting during my testing. I believe this is due, at least in part, to the upper bracket for the legs on my Sun Mountain 2.5+ fitting nearly perfectly between the Top-Lok brackets (see pic below) which prevents it from twisting.”

"The hand brake is a complete game changer." -Lacassem

Brake System

Lacassem said “Like a bike hand brake. If there were any issues it would be easy to replace. On slopes it slides a little bit if you have the brake applied and it’s not in a good position, but it is extremely secure and literally at the tip of my fingers. It’s the little things that are bonuses for me, they did a great job running clean lines and using fabric to hold the brake line tight to the cart. Small details.”

“I was blown away at the piston technology that went into the Nitron design and how easy it is to open and close the cart. " – Preeway

Cart Storage

Tester Preeway: “The top tray and bottom compartment located on the handle are well designed and functional. I’m not looking for a lot of storage space on the cart itself since I have plenty in my bag. I was really impressed with the storage space below the handle not so much because of the size but because it provided some degree of shade and protection for what was inside. This is where I typically kept my rangefinder and glove while walking.” 

“The cup holder was another area for me where my opinion waxed and waned. I don’t typically bring my own water bottle with me and instead will get water or Gatorade from the pro shop. I never had any issues with getting these to fit and was also able to get a beer can in a koozie to fit without problem as well. However, there were a couple of times when it was really hot and humid when I brought a large Gatorade for the round and the larger bottles are just a tad too large in diameter to fit. I think the cupholder is designed to hold anything you can buy at the course, which to me seems reasonable.” 

The Final Verdict

“I cannot recommend this cart enough." – Lecassem

The Nitron pushcart received scores from 22 to 23.5 out of 25 and all the testers will be keeping the pushcart to use.

Tester edingc: “The Bag Boy Nitron is solidly built, has a ton of features, and it looks good! If you are in the market for a new cart, I’d recommend taking a good look at the Nitron. If you have a Top Lok-compatible bag, I’d not even bother looking at alternatives.”

Tester Lacassm: “I cannot recommend this cart enough for those looking for something on the affordable side. I receive so many compliments on this cart and don’t doubt anyone else that gets it will too.”

Tester Preeway: “Overall, I was really impressed with this cart. Anyone looking to buy a cart and join the walking mafia should really give this model serious consideration.”

Tester Hobert: “On the course, the Nitron is light and nimble, and its looks are the envy of all of the other push carts at the club. I strongly recommend that anyone in the market for a push cart take a long look at the Nitron!”

      I used my Bagboy cart for over a year and one day the supporting arm for the leg broke. I could still push the cart, but if I pulled it backward for even a moment the cart would collapse. I “retired” it and went to Clicgear.

      We will be sure to follow up with our testers on this! None of them mentioned or reported that, but will be curious if any have since experienced that!

      Think I mentioned this during the review. Yes, if you pack the compartment with a lot of balls they will go flying! I just learned to be gentle and had no major issues.

      Alright boys, I appreciate the recommendation. I read through every comment and review on this product and my wife has bought this for me for Christmas. I’m on a major health journey and I’m using golf to get me there. I’ll write my own review after the new year to let you know how it handles the hill country here in San Antonio.

      I own one & here are a few comments that people should know. First – I do like the cart. That said, understand these three things:

      1) I am 6’2″, so the holder for the umbrella sits on the side of the handle & is too low for me to walk under it with an umbrella open, unless I hunch over. I actually stacked a second holder (from an old cart) into the one attached to the
      handle to raise it a few inches.
      2) There is no place – no place to hang a sand bottle. This may or may not be important to you
      3) The most important thing, unless this has changed on the latest version, is you need to reinforce the rivets that are attach the “arms” to the slider on the bar at the bottom that leads to the front wheel. A lot of torque goes there. One of mine broke & the store replaced it. On the new one, I used epoxy & it is fine and has lasted two years.

      Agreed about the height of the umbrella. Thankfully I don’t often play in the rain, but at 6′ I did have to hunch a little. I found it easiest to hold the umbrella while walking.

      My brother is looking for a pushcart & I recommended this one to him because of the rave reviews on the forum and the value. Great reviews!

      This cart has been the perfect replacement for my old Sun Mountain cart that died earlier this year. It is incredibly easy to set up out of the box and even easier to open and close on the course. The straps securely hold any size bag and can be quickly adjusted if you use different sized bags on occasion. Can’t recommend this cart enough to anyone looking to find a way to make walking the course easier and more enjoyable.
