PowaKaddy Introduces Revolutionary Modifications To Their Popular Freeway Trolley Range

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 18 Feb 2016

With the unveiling of their stunning line-up of new models for 2016, PowaKaddy have introduced revolutionary modifications to their world-renowned freeway trolley range. 

Following an extremely successful year, the popular FW3, FW5, FW7S and FW7S EBS models have all been re-designed for 2016, boasting striking new wheels, fresh trims and, in the case of the flagship FW7S, several never-before-seen performance features geared towards the avid golfer. The new line-up sees the rebranding of the previous FW7 to the FW7S, in reflection of its new sporty and stylish appearance.   

All three models boast a bespoke engineered low-profile PowaFrame® chassis that ensures extra strength and robustness, whilst reducing overall weight. Each precision-engineered trolley also incorporates new graphics on its resilient frame, which has one of the simplest and strongest 3-way folding systems on the market. Supreme handling and manoeuvrability has been proven through long term testing, whilst Tempered glass front wheel bearings ensure a smoother, quieter movement and last up to five times longer than regular bearings. Innovative PowaKaddy drive systems have also been engineered to further reduce sound and achieve near silent motion.

“We’re very proud of the Freeway’s title as the world’s best-selling trolley range, but we understand that golfers are always looking for extra in terms of performance, style and value – and ultimately the new 2016 line-up delivers on all those fronts,” said David Catford, PowaKaddy CEO. “The FW3 and FW5 models have undergone significant design changes that offer a genuine ‘wow’ factor, while the FW7S is the standout trolley in the new range and offer golfers more features than ever before.

“We’ve worked really closely with retail partners and golfers in recent years to get valuable feedback on the performance of Freeway trolleys and that has played a massive part in the new designs,” added Catford. 

Each new trolley model can be powered by the thinnest Lithium battery on the market, while the latest re-engineered lithium-ion battery technology ensures PowaKaddy Lithium delivers 20% more staying power. The innovative Plug ‘n’ Play technology – which ensures golfers don’t have to connect any fiddly wires when slotting into the battery tray – has played a significant part in propelling PowaKaddy Lithium sales above lead-acid batteries in the last year.

PowaKaddy FW7S

The top-of-the-range FW7S and FW7S EBS (Electronic Braking System) models introduce a brand new 3.5” Widescreen full Colour Display that’s the same size as a smartphone screen. For the very first time, it can tell golfers how many calories they’ve burned during their round thanks to an easy-to-read, built-in calorie counter.

The digital display screen – which lights up in vibrant blue and red colours when the trolley is turned on – also shows golfers how much battery power they have left thanks to a simple car-like fuel gauge. The trolley’s chrome speed dial ensures an extremely simple control mechanism, while golfers can also charge smart phones and GPS devices from a USB Charging Port.

Covered by a three-year warranty, the feature-packed FW7S has undergone a number of engrossing design changes for this season, including new low profile Premium Sports Wheels that take trolley aesthetics onto a whole new level. The low-profile PowaFrame® design has also been boosted with a new Rear Diffuser that comes in classy Brushed Silver and Carbon Graphite colour options, while yellow highlights have been introduced to a number of trolley parts, such as the frame, handle, bag supports and wheels.  

The whisper-quiet motor of the FW7S has also been upgraded to 230 watts to ensure more power than ever before. 

Following strong feedback from golfers across the world, the popular features from previous years have continued, namely: the Automatic Distance Function (ADF) for setting the trolley off at distances between 5-50 yards; the Specific Speed Display and Distance Measurement functions; clock; round timer; and the integrated Anti-Tamper security pin lock.

PowaKaddy FW5

The new FW5 model has also undergone an impressive makeover for 2016, adding to its reputation as one of the most aspirational trolleys on the market. The sleek model introduces all-new, low profile Deluxe Sports Wheels with classy yellow accent trims on the five individual spokes for an extraordinarily-striking look, while enhanced trims and graphics on the frame also boost the trolley’s appearance.

The new FW5 – which comes in Polar White and Classic Black frame options – also boasts a new Rear Diffuser design that contrasts with the colour of the frame to deliver a standout look.

The perfect mid-price option for trolley lovers, the FW5 uses a 200W motor and maintains its numerous performance features that have been a major hit with players in recent years. These include a Digital Power Gauge and Battery Fuel Indicator, as well as an Integrated USB port for charging smart phones and GPS Devices. An Automatic Distance Function (ADF) offers golfers the chance to set the trolley off in distances of 15, 30 or 45 yards.

PowaKaddy FW3

Attractive pricing and an inheritance of the best aspects of the immensely successful PowaKaddy Freeway range make the FW3 the ideal entry-level option for golfers. This year, the FW3 has been supremely enhanced to ensure even greater value for the discerning golfer.

A striking theme across the entire 2016 Freeway range is the sporty new wheels and the FW3 is no different in that respect. Breathing new life into the FW3, the stunning low profile sporty wheels combine perfectly with the enhanced trim effects across the whole trolley. Stylish tube graphics provide another significant addition to the latest model that comes in sharp Polar White and Classic Black colour options.

Powered by a whisper-quiet 200W motor, the FW3 offers simple functionality. An easy-to-use, ambidextrous soft T-bar grip allows golfers an extremely simple method of steering the trolley, while the straightforward On/Off button comes complete with Power, Pause & Resume function.
