2017 PowaKaddy Freeway Electric Trolley Range Launched - Golfers set to benefit from exciting updates to PowaKaddy's popular Freeway range of electric trolleys
2017 PowaKaddy Freeway Electric Trolley Range Launched
After a successful 2016 the PowaKaddy Freeway family has been given a makeover for 2017, boasting a host of enhancements and upgrades on the FW3, FW5 and FW7s models.
The most significant of which can be found on the FW3 and FW5 models, which now feature new digital screens, a digital power gauge and battery fuel indicator. In recognition of the new intelligent handles on both the FW3 and FW5 models, PowaKaddy has re-branded the trolleys as the FW3i (below) and FW5i.
Meanwhile, the top-of-the-range FW7s introduces a stunning new frame colour and soft touch handle trims to add to its host of other features. Also fresh for 2017 are new graphics on the trolley’s frame and new yellow trims on the front wheel to add to the premium look.
Backed by a three-year warranty, the FW7s includes a 3.5” Full Colour Widescreen, offering golfers an intelligent handle that can even count the number of calories burned during a round.
“The performance of the Freeway range last year exceeded our expectations, but we’re not resting on our laurels and we’re really excited about the new line-up for 2017,” said PowaKaddy CEO David Catford. “Whilst we’ve invested significantly in the new family – particularly with the new digital screens – we’ve kept the price points the same as last year, so golfers really are getting fantastic value with the latest Freeway range.
Available in both 18 and 36 hole options, the reliable PowaKaddy Lithium battery (above) is the thinnest lithium battery on the market and now comes with a five-year warranty.
