PowaKaddy takes trolley technology to the next level in best ever collection

    PowaKaddy, the world’s leading electric trolley brand, has recently revealed details of its all-new product offering for 2020, including the tenth iteration of the pioneering Freeway series.

    The stunning collection signifies the next stage in the evolution of PowaKaddy’s electric trolley range, with completely remodelled chassis shapes and significant technological refinements.

    The market-leading Freeway series – renamed as the FX collection to signify the tenth reimagining of the family – spearheads the line-up, as PowaKaddy continues to strengthen its trolley collection to deliver pioneering products that meet the demands of every golfer.

    Not content with a major chassis re-design, PowaKaddy has also upgraded to a next generation Lithium 30-volt battery and motor system, meaning their new trolleys are more efficient. The new 30v Max™ Plug’n’Play™ battery is the thinnest, lightest and most powerful golf trolley battery on the market.

    To complete the launch, the new range is coupled with a major visual rebranding that further reinforces the compact designs and stylish features that will drive PowaKaddy in the next decade.

    Powerful Technology and Unbeatable Performance in the ALL-NEW Freeway Series

    The Freeway series is the gold standard in the market and has been the world’s most popular electric trolley since its inception decades ago.

    The latest versions feature PowaKaddy’s brand-new hi-tensile alloy 1-Click folding system. When folded, the new Freeway models are 20% smaller than the previous versions – making them more convenient for day-to-day use and even more practical to load and store.

    The visually stunning, engineered polymer, low profile PowaFrame® chassis is the strongest system on the market. The updated design is perfectly balanced, delivering unparalleled levels of handling and manoeuvrability to create the ultimate user experience. New models also feature PowaKaddy’s signature trims which creates a striking look and premium feel.

    The Freeway series features a host of brand-new technology for 2020, including: speed controller with improved accuracy, HET (Hall Effect Transducer) feature for greater downhill control, LCD backlight control system and newly-designed stealth wheels, as well as a tee holder, towel hook and a USB charging port.

    Ground-breaking new GPS technology further enhances the FX7 GPS’s reputation as the flagship model in the PowaKaddy range. Pre-loaded with over 38,000 courses across the globe, golfers can manage their game directly from their trolley handle with the incredible 3.5” high visibility, full-colour LCD display which delivers fast and accurate distances to the front, middle and back of the green, as well as hazards. The model is also available with EBS (Electronic Braking System) to slow the trolley on steep inclines.

    The new FX7 has been re-engineered with an all-new chassis designed to seamlessly integrate with improved technology, providing golfers with the ultimate electric trolley experience. The 2020 FX7 is the most intelligent trolley of its kind – featuring a stunning full-colour 3.5” widescreen display, built-in calorie counter, distance measurement function, and a powerful near-silent 230-watt motor. Available with optional EBS, this updated version also features an increased three-year warranty, giving golfers greater peace of mind.

    The new FX5 combines understated elegance with exceptional performance, providing the perfect option for golfers seeking added features and superior performance at a mid-price point. The FX5 boasts a bright, 2.8” mid-size full-colour widescreen display as well as an integrated USB charging port and automatic distance function (ADF). 

    For simplicity, without compromising on unbeatable performance and reliability, the all-new FX3 is the entry-level model in the Freeway series. The 2.3” full-colour widescreen display with digital power gauge and battery fuel indicator demonstrates that the stylish FX3 offers engineered simplicity at the highest level. This is also available with optional EBS. The all-new PowaFrame® chassis houses the re-designed 30v Max™ Plug ‘n’ Play™ battery system which is the smallest and most powerful on the market.

    The new PowaKaddy FWGPS Rental Cart offers golf professionals the opportunity to double their investment in just three months. The fully integrated GPS technology helps speed up play, provides increased hire fees and leads to greater retail sales to members.

    Game-Changing Ultra-Compact Design

    2018 vs 2020

    The award-winning Compact C2i became the fastest-selling electric trolley of all-time when it was launched in 2017. In 2019, PowaKaddy expanded its compact offering to include fully-integrated GPS capability – the smallest GPS trolley on the market.

    The new Compact CT range takes compactness to the next level. The reimagined CT6 folds in two simple steps to be 35% smaller than its nearest competitor – making it not just compact, but ultra-compact.

    Featuring a 2.8” mid-size full-colour widescreen display, tee holder, towel hook and a USB charging port, it is the perfect trolley for the golfer who puts a premium on storage and convenience.

    Available with optional EBS, PowaKaddy technology is evident throughout. The Compact range features the new speed controller with improved accuracy, HET (Hall Effect Transducer) for greater downhill control, LCD backlight control system and PowaKaddy’s new 40% smaller Plug ‘n’ Play™ 30v Max™ Lithium Battery system.

    Enjoy smarter power with the all-new CT6 GPS – the smallest, most intelligent ultra-compact trolley in the world. This redesigned model boasts a fully-integrated GPS which is pre-loaded in the trolley’s high-tech handle and accessible via the 2.8” full-colour widescreen display. The new CT6 GPS trolley also folds in two simple steps and can fit into the smallest of car boots.

    Second Generation Plug ‘n’ Play Technology

    Each of the 2020 models feature PowaKaddy’s new and unique Plug ‘n’ Play™ 30v Max™ battery system which has been redesigned to take up less space without compromising on efficiency or power. The upgraded Lithium battery is 40% smaller than the existing model – while maintaining 100% of its capacity – and features a new on/off switch on top of the battery. Cutting-edge technology also ensures that the batteries discharge less during each round of golf than in previous models.

    Exquisitely Designed Accessories Range

    PowaKaddy has also updated its extensive range of accessories for 2020. The new collection features a smart and stylish scorecard holder, newly designed umbrella holder, easy-to-fit drinks holder, double canopy umbrella, waterproof rain cover and winter wheels, among others.

    Sleek Designs and Unwavering Performance in the 2020 Cart Bag Range

    Accompanying the updated range of accessories is the remodelled and largest PowaKaddy cart bag range to date, consisting of 19 different style and colourway combinations.

    The stunning 2020 Premium Edition bag is constructed from the latest lightweight vinyl and PU materials, making it 20% lighter than the previous model, while housing a 14-way divider and nine spacious storage pockets.

    Also boasting a range of high-tech features, the new and improved Dri Tech cart bag features a sleek new design and is 100% waterproof with a hydrostatic rated fabric of over 10,000mm – four times the performance of most waterproof bags. 

    An exciting addition to the line-up, the Premium Tech is a brand-new model included in the PowaKaddy cart bag range. Liquid metal effect logos, waterproof valuable pockets, a deboss on EVA surface and a segregated putter well are just a few of the innovative design features.

    The feature-packed DLX-Lite cart bag has been transformed with a sleek design incorporating a new 14-way top with a designated divider for putters with larger size grips. It also features 11 storage pockets and PowaKaddy’s unique Key-Lock™ system.

    Lightweight construction meets stylish design in the PowaKaddy X-Lite Cart Bag. The X-Lite provides excellent club organisation with 14-way individual dividers. Additional benefits include: seven storage pockets, an insulated cooler pocket and an anti-wear patch on the rear of the bag.
