Powakaddy unveil updated Freeway family for 2017

Peter Finnan

The PowaKaddy Freeway family have launched their 2017 offerings showing further enhancements with the FW3, FW5 and FW7s all welcoming  upgrades for the new season.

Following feedback from avid trolley users across the world, the popular trio of trolleys have all undergone impressive makeovers for 2017 – most notably the FW3 and FW5 with new digital screens,  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 and FW5i.

Meanwhile, after an extremely successful year 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 classy new graphics on the trolley’s frame, whilst stylish new yellow trims on the front wheel add to the overall premium look. Backed by a three-year warranty, the FW7s includes a 3.5” Full Colour Widescreen, offering golfers an incredibly 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.”

“Added to that is the new full five-year warranty on all Plug ‘n’ Play Lithium batteries, which offers golfers even more peace of mind when they invest in a PowaKaddy Lithium trolley,” added Catford.

Available in both 18 and 36 hole options, the supremely-reliable PowaKaddy Lithium battery boasts an integrated Battery Management System that protects the life of the battery and provides up to five times longer lifespan than lead acid equivalents.
