One day towards the end of Summer, my husband saw our neighbor’s son on a Hoverboard and made the comment to me that they looked like fun and he’d love to try it out. However it didn’t belong to our neighbor’s son, so he didn’t get the chance. Fast forward about 2 months and I received a press release about GoTrax’s Columbus day sale, I thought to myself, well it can’t hurt to pitch for one and well, I’m writing about it so the company agreed to send one for my Holiday Gift Guide. A BIG Thank you going out to GoTRAX as I know my husband will be shocked when he finds one under the tree!
There are a nice variety of colors to choose from, so I gave my husband 3 colors and asked him to choose a color he’d want (I did not tell him what it was for) and he said purple. We received the Planetary Purple and it’s so pretty! I LOVE the color. It’s a deep purple which I know he will like too. What came in the box was the instruction book, a fidget spinner (hubby will LOVE that) and the charger.
The GOTRAX hoverboard is very well made and has a good bit of weight to them. Although I did not try it out, I noticed that it’s pretty sturdy too. I like that because I’m thinking my granddaughter won’t fall off of it if she tries it out. I am impressed that it is already charged and ready to go. This is going to make Christmas morning a lot of fun!
I read somewhere that the hoverboards hold a pretty good battery life. It’s easy to turn on and off with the power button that you just press to do so. The charging cord is a pretty good length, so charging shouldn’t be an issue. The lights on the hoverboard change colors which make it even more fun and it’s also a nice safety feature. If you are worried about noise, it’s not loud at all so it won’t disturb you or your neighbors.
- Max Weight Limit 220 lb (100kg)
- Min. Weight Limit 44 lb (20 kg)
- Max Speed Limit ~ 7.4 mph (11 kph)

Would I recommend this? Definately!
