2018 it is deemed to be a lucky year for technology and for hoverboards in particular. After the boom in the past year, the popularity of this electric scooter is destined to grow more and more and to thrill adults and children.
Hoverboards can be considered both an entertainment device and a powerful way to move around the city.
In any case, model after model, the quality of the materials and the level of technology are progressing to being more advanced and with functionality always on the increase. Let’s see in detail the most relevant features of the electric scooter.
How and where you can ride an Hoverboard scooter?
Although it is seen more and more frequently, the electric scooter is not recognized today in the Highway Code and this will mean that it can only be used in private or urban contexts, as in shopping centers or inside of parks.
In any case, it is important to buy electric hoverboards that ensure the necessary safety for the user who uses it.
As happens now on any electronic instrument, even the electric scooter undergoes not a few imitations (especially of Chinese mold) and this can lead to the purchase of an instrument that presents a price of lower levels, but that could also go to the expense of safety and quality of manufacture.
Therefore, regardless of where a hoverboard is used, it is important that this is an approved instrument, that is, the UL2272 certification valid for Europe and the United States.
Even if you prefer to buy a used scooter, always check that it is approved and that it is not of Chinese brands.
But how do you use a hoverboard? Simple, it’s all about balance! Just lean forward to proceed and retract backwards to stop the instrument.
To be able to maneuver instead, just move the weight on the right foot or on the left depending on the desired direction.
This is possible thanks to the weight sensors positioned below the footrest. In case of difficulty then, on the web there are numerous videos and tutorials that can be very helpful.
Although the electric scooter is very popular with children, it is recommended for users aged 12 and over and under adult supervision.
