New intelligent touch trolley from PowaKaddy

PowaKaddy has launched a stylish and easy-to-use model for 2016, featuring an innovative technology that automatically changes speed as golfers change theirs – all through a simple touch on the handle whilst walking.

Based on its patented Touch ‘n’ Go Technology, the extremely simple and intuitive PowaKaddy TOUCH model only requires the golfer to rest his or her hand on the comfortable, ambidextrous grip and start walking for the highly-intelligent trolley to begin moving at the same speed of its user. The TOUCH continues to travel at the same speed even when the user’s hand has been taken off the handle. To make the trolley come to a standstill, golfers just place their hand on the grip and stop walking.

A new Kinetic LED Power Display turns green when the trolley is moving and then goes red once it has stopped. The red activator button beneath the handle provides a discreet way to switch the trolley on and off.

“The TOUCH takes trolley technology onto a whole new level and provides golfers with one of the easiest control functions ever seen,” commented PowaKaddy R&D Manager Andy Thompson. “Golfers of all ages and abilities will love how simple and intuitive the TOUCH is – it simplifies controlling the trolley’s speed and allows them to concentrate fully on their game. Crucially, all the technology is out of sight and out of mind, so it really is as simple as Touch ‘n’ Go.”

Its appearance is backed by stylish new Deluxe Sporty 11” quick-release low-profile wheels with yellow trim, while the crisp Polar White or Classic Black frame combines perfectly with eye-catching yellow finishes on the front and a stylish rear diffuser on the back of the trolley’s PowaFrame, plus handle.

PowaKaddy’s sleek and compact Plug’n’Play Lithium batteries perfectly compliment the TOUCH, and golfers who opt for the 18-hole option will benefit from the thinnest battery on the market. Meanwhile the latest re-engineered lithium-ion battery technology ensures PowaKaddy Lithium delivers 20 per cent more staying power based on its 18 hole Lithium Battery 260Wh and 36 hole Lithium Battery 388Wh.

The PowaKaddy TOUCH will be available April 2016 and comes in a Polar White or Classic Black frame with yellow trim. Prices from £399.99 (standard battery), £549.99 (Lithium Battery) and £599.99 (Extended Range Lithium Battery).
