Hoverboard has us all psyched! Remember «Back to the Future» those hover boards that floated in the air? Well they seem to have inspired the creators of this Hoverboard, this Silicon Valley based company aims to build the next big thing in personal mobility, easy to use, green, because it´s electrically powered, cool, since you use it like a skateboard and practical, it has loads of built in features to assist you on your ride, making it all the more fun and safe. At its core you get an electrical brushless motor, with high output power, around 5K watts, that enable it to reach 16mph and get a range of up to 10 miles, with a built in management unit that reads your power or braking needs, with smooth deliverance and optimal power output. It´s also very light because Hoverboard makes use of light weight state of the art materials such as magnesium, on the chassis. With easy do-it-yourself maintenance, and the usual app to control and manage its countless features we anticipate great success for this futuristic gizmo. watch the video
