Wow! With updates last week and the holiday season approaching we are in the critical mode, everyone. BEEP BEEP!! DANGER DANGER! I have been flying through stores trying to finish up my holiday shopping and leaving just a little room to head out on Black Friday. Today I wanted to share with you one amazing gift to get your kiddo off the couch and outside! It’s from GOTRAX, and it is their Hoverfly Hoverboard. As must of us know, Hoverboards have been all the rage for the past couple of holiday seasons and I don’t think that this is going to change anytime soon.
First off, the one thing that I must mention above all is that GOTRAX Hoverboards are in fact tested and certified to UL 2272 safety standard guides. For me, this is the first thing that I look for when it comes to hoverboards, and there have been so many pitches that I received that did not include this information on their site and I simply had to pass up. You want something that is certified to UL 22272 safety standards because safety must come first when it comes to hoverboards.
For this review, I received the Hoverfly in Mars Red which I must say is simply beautiful in every way. You know how much I am all about the wow factor when you open the box and this has it all. If I am wowed trust me your kiddo will be as well. Included in the box is everything you need to get started.
If you or your child has never used a Hoverboard before I would say that this would be a great first choice for a couple of reasons. This board will allow you to go from beginner mode to a more advanced more fairly quickly. Or like the website says “Go from Space Cadet to Space Commander in just 5 minutes Earth time using the quick and easy Training Mode feature.”
To ensure the utmost safety of its users, The GOTRAX Hoverfly is equipped with special safety features including indicator lights, alarms, and protection mode/auto shut down.
Safety indicator light and alarms will alert the user of the following:
- The platform is tilted forward or backward more than 15 degrees.
- The battery is low
- The product is on an incline of more than 30 degrees and can’t self-balance.
- The user has reached the max speed for safe operation.
Protection mode and auto shut down under the following conditions:
- When the product is tilted more than 35 degrees backwards or forwards. The motor will shut off
- When the wheels are blocked from moving.
- When the battery is too low
- When the motor is overheated or overworked.
The board itself is very nicely made, and I am impressed how wonderful that it is built. This is actually my first time using a board, and I just used it a bit in the house because well, this beauty is going to a family in my county for the holidays like the rest of the items this year in the holiday guide. I found picking up how to use the Hoverfly rather simple, and I don’t think anyone over the age of 7 would have any problems mastering this in no time.
Not only does GoTrax offer this hoverboard and a couple of other boards to choose from but they also offer other items as well. Including Electric Scooter and Electric ATV’s. I would highly suggest checking out their line of products this holiday season. I feel that everything is made perfectly and I am sure that your kiddo and even yourself will get a kick out of using this Hoverfly.
In my product postings, most of the products have been received free for my honest review. I will always give my honest opinion. All images and posts are property of Hello Betty.
