Leading brand proves it has an electric trolley for every golfer this season

Market-leading electric trolley brand PowaKaddy has declared it’s time to make ‘Freeway Your Way’ on the fairways this season. This follows the launch of three stylish and performance-infused models inspired by the rich heritage of the world-famous ‘Freeway franchise’.

Inspired by the rich heritage of the Freeway marque, the 2013 Freeway Family encompasses a stylish new Freeway model, an enhanced Freeway Digital+ and the new Freeway SPORT.

The latter has seen the critically acclaimed PK SPORT model re-branded to spearhead the all-encompassing new range, which looks set to strengthen the brand’s position as the leader in the electric golf trolley market.

With unerring reliability, robust performance and sporty design features resonating throughout, the Freeway Family offers outstanding value throughout.

“We are extremely excited about the launch of the Freeway Family,” said John deGraft-Johnson, PowaKaddy’s Chairman. “We firmly believe our three new cutting-edge and sporty designs, all displaying the famed Freeway name, represent the most complete electric trolley range available on the market today.”

“Our reputation has been built on delivering quality, functionality, innovative technologies and performance across the board. We now aim to take these core values to the next level with the Freeway Family.”

Renowned for being the world’s best-selling trolley for the past decade, the Freeway has been the recipient of a number of design and technology upgrades that will see it cement its No.1 status for years to come.

PK’s designers have incorporated a new lightweight, oversized central tube and soft touch ambidextrous T-Bar handle to deliver a more modern sporty look.

The innovative new power ‘on/off’ LED indicator and ‘pause & resume’ function provide additional performance capabilities. Other stand-out features include, a cutting-edge key lock system that holds cart bags securely without twisting, low profile five-spoke sporty wheels, a new on-course front wheel adjustment, a unique interchangeable built in battery connection for both standard and lithium batteries, and a whisper quiet 200w motor.

Offering unbeatable value without compromise, the new Freeway comes with a suggested retail price of £369.99 (Standard Battery) and £399.99 (Extended Range Battery).

The new Freeway Digital + is an enhanced version of the award-winning Freeway Digital model that was first launched in March 2012. This feature-packed electric trolley represents a truly ‘best in class’ product.

It effortlessly combines elegant styling and precision engineering with easy-to-use functionality. Highlight features include, a new battery indicator and Power on/off LED indicator, soft-touch ambidextrous digital ‘T’ bar handle complete with built-in responsive nine-speed control roller, fully-integrated LED display screen, and electronic digital distance function.

The Freeway Digital+ also benefits from a lightweight and robust oversize frame that combines with sporty low profile five-spoke wide wheels to complete a distinctive modern look. The 200w whisper quiet motor ensures that the Freeway Digital+ is not only visually stunning, but is also engineered to the highest possible specifications for outstanding performance on all terrains.

Other highly-functional features include PK’s revolutionary, three-way simple-to-use folding mechanism; a battery tray that incorporates a built-in interchangeable battery connection that can be utilised with both lithium and lead acid batteries; and a unique and versatile bag grip and exclusive key lock system that, when utilised with any PowaKaddy cart bag, restricts all lateral movement.

The Freeway Digital + is available in both black and white frame options and comes with a suggested retail price of £429.99 (Standard Lead Acid Battery),  £459.99 (Extended Range Battery) and £579.99 (Lithium Battery).

Over the past two years, the high-performance PK SPORT has gone from strength-to-strength. It maintains its position as the most desirable and critically acclaimed electric trolley on the market.

Following a re-branding, the newly christened Freeway SPORT will continue to spearhead the PowaKaddy range, providing golfers with a myriad of advanced technologies under the legendary Freeway name. The Freeway SPORT’s innovative, but simple to use ergonomic soft grip handle features a built-in responsive ambidextrous nine-speed control roller combined with a fully integrated LCD display screen and a separate “DDF” button allows direct access to the Digital Distance Function.

Combining strong and lightweight materials with a powerful yet whisper quiet 200w motor, designers have developed an aesthetically pleasing, but uncompromisingly robust, state-of-the-art electric trolley.

A host of practical features come together to ensure the Freeway SPORT maintains its status as the market-leading brand’s most complete design, including a three-way no-fuss folding mechanism, capable of fitting the trolley into the smallest of car boots; a battery-life monitor; digital clock; universal bag stay and soft grip pads suitable for all bag types; and a modern-looking white, black or graphite aluminium frame.

The new PK Freeway SPORT will be available with the following battery and frame colour combinations: £479.99 (Standard Battery with either Black or White frame), £509.99 (Extended Range Battery with either Black or White frame), £679.99 (Lithium Battery with a choice of Black, White or Graphite frames) and £729.99 (Lithium EBS with Graphite frame).
