GOTRAX Hoverfly Eco Hoverboard Functions
Hoverboards have become so popular these days that it is not very uncommon to see kids, teens, and adults gliding their way around on one of these sleek devices. Endorsed by many celebrities, the self-balancing hoverboards have attracted millions of kids and adults alike.
If you’re looking for an affordable hoverboard that combines the latest technology with optimum performance, the Hoverfly Eco self-balancing scooter is the one you should consider buying. Here are the functions of this amazing device.
Easy and Versatile Ride
The GOTRAX Hoverfly Eco uses the latest gyroscopic technology to provide a uniquely stable and manoeuvrable experience for the rider. Whether travelling in straight lines or rotating in circles, simple shifts in bodyweight are all that’s needed to control this incredible board.
Advanced sensors are connected to powerful electronic motors to control both the direction and the speed of the board while in operation. With just a single charge, the Gotrax Hoverfly Eco is able to deliver consistent performance for a maximum of 12 miles, hitting a swift top speed of 7.4mph.
There’s also a useful ‘training’ setting that’s ideal for kids, newcomers and anyone looking for the easiest introduction to self balancing scooters. The training setting restricts the speed and maneuverability of the Gotrax Hoverfly Eco somewhat, making it significantly easier to handle. Or if you’ve a little more experience, simply switch the Hoverfly Eco Hoverboard to the ‘Standard’ setting to maximize its speed and performance.
Self-balancing and Speed Controlling
When a rider tilts or accelerates, the sensors in the wheels relay this information to the main logic board of the hoverboard which then makes the device spin at a speed that matches your center of gravity. As you lean forward on the hoverboard, the device moves faster. Thus, you can control the speeds either by leaning forward or backward.
Safe and Powerful Riding
This GOTRAX Hoverboard has been designed to provide maximum safety to the riders. The charging systems, electric systems, and battery have all been verified and certified to UL 2272 safety standards for self-balancing hoverboards.
The rubber bumpers, non-slip foot platforms, and the Auto Shutdown system feature of the hoverboard provide additional safety. The dual 250W force field motors plus the latest gyroscopic self-balancing technology provide the riders with a seamless, controlled, and powerful hoverboard riding experience.
