PowaKaddy has unveiled a new corporate branding to coincide with the launch of the most technologically advanced range of electric trolleys in the company’s 40-year history.
Looking to build on its 58% market share in the UK, the new collection boasts some major upgrades to its previous models, with completely remodelled chassis shapes and significant technological advancements across the entire range.
Spearheading the new ‘FX Collection’, which replaces the Freeway name, is the all-new FX7 GPS, which boasts touch screen GPS technology, as well as a new PowaFrame chassis and hi-tensile alloy, while the new 1-Click folding system enables the entire frame to fold down 20% smaller than previous models. The GPS offers distances to the front, middle and back of greens, as well as hazards, and the screen also boasts a scorecard function. Other features include a new optional self-sensing electronic braking system that automatically slows the trolley on steep inclines.
The power supply has been upgraded to a 30v Max Plug’n’Play lithium battery, which is 40% smaller than the previous model, while maintaining 100% of its capacity. It is offered in 18-hole and 36-hole versions. The FX7, which is offered with and without GPS, and optional EBS, comes in a metallic gunmetal finish with a carbon graphite trim. RRPs are between £679.99 and £899.99.
The FX5s (£599.99-£649.99) features an all-new design, while the FX3s (£549.99-£649.99) provides an entry-level option for those seeking uncompromised performance at a lower price point.
The redesigned Compact CT range continues to push the boundaries of ultra-compact design with an all-new two-fold mechanism, and low-profile chassis that collapses to be 20% smaller than the CT2. The standard CT6 (£649.99) features a premium gunmetal metallic frame colour, as well as the new smaller Plug ‘n’ Play lithium battery, while the CT6 GPS (£799.99-£849.99) comes pre-loaded with a fully-integrated GPS which is accessible via the 2.8-inch, full-colour widescreen display.
As well as automatically locating your course, the CT6 GPS offers an auto hole advance feature, as well as an automatic distance function that allows you to set the stopping distance of your trolley to the desired yardage. The PowaKaddy GPS Bluetooth Connected App for iOS and Android allows golfers to carry out course updates on-the-go using just their mobile device. No annual fees or subscriptions are required.
“The Compact range has been a huge success since its inception in 2017 and we are proud to introduce the second generation of our extremely popular GPS model,” said PowaKaddy CEO, David Catford. “There are some major technological advancements in the new range and after two years of design and development, we believe our fantastic team of engineers have created not only the most compact electric trolley on the market, but also the most intelligent.”
