Three trolleys will sit in the newly developed PowaKaddy Freeway family. This Freeway will be the cheapest of the three models, and features a number of upgrades compared to the previous offering. A new lightweight, oversized central tube is combined with a soft ambidextrous T-bar handle to give a more modern, sporty look.

Will suit… those looking for a high-quality, but simple and sporty, trolley.

Verdict

GM verdict: Anyone who currently doesn’t use an electric trolley, but is considering one, should try the redeveloped Freeway trolley. As with previous Freeway versions, it’s a great option for those that don’t want any added distractions on the course. The beauty of the new model is the sporty design that modernises this classic name. For those wanting timers, distance settings and measurements, there are plenty of more expensive choices available, although you should consider whether you’ll use the added extras that drive up the price. The folding and unfolding mechanism is simple and easy to use, and the handle is extremely comfortable, whether you’re right or left handed. But... some will desire a more advanced screen, and will be better off with one of the higher-spec Freeway designs. GM verdict: We really liked this new trolley, as it brings together all the best features of previous models, packed into one unit. It was easy to assemble, install the battery, and operate. The speed control unit is impressive, and is adjustable to any walking pace. This trolley focuses on simplicity and ease of use, and if the reliability is as good as the design, then it’s sure to be a winner.
