We use on our hoverboard purple a high-end motor from Brussel, a long-lasting battery from Samsung and very clever sensors to detect when the rider leans in a certain direction, and in turn, the electric motors spin the wheels to move in that direction. Basically, all you do is shift your weight in the desired direction and you will move towards it. Riding one is pretty eerie, as the board seems to “know” where you want to go. It’s almost like it’s reading your mind. This is basically the same technology that the Segway uses, but here we have no handlebars. This makes the hoverboard a lot more compact and convenient to commute to work, where you can just store your hoverboard under your desk until you go home. Not all 2 wheel self-balancing hoverboards are created equal……! Please make sure from whoever you purchase a hoverboard that it is certified and comes with the labels according to as our pictures show to keep yourself and your family safe. This way you always have peace of mind and always can take it, Easy people!
