My boys have always loved trying the latest rideable toys so when hoverboards came out, we had to try a few! Recently GOTRAX sent us one of their HOVERFLY Hoverboards to try out and the boys have since recommended it to a few of their friends! For under $250 (well under for their Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale) it is well made, super fun to ride and stands up to teenaged boy use!
The HOVERFLY can reach speeds up to 7.5mph and can go up to 12 miles on a single charge so you get plenty of ride time in before you need to charge again. I really loved the training mode feature for riders new to hoverboards. It makes it so much less intimidating for those who haven’t gotten on one yet!
The cool thing about these hoverboards is their gyroscopic self-balancing scooter technology and 0-degree turning radius! I loved that they added non-slip foot pads and protective bumpers as well.
With the 220lb weight capacity the whole family can ride (and has).
GOTRAX has some other great rideable gifts as well as a great deal on a helmet! The boys and I were checking out the HOVERFLY Plus that has a Bluetooth speaker!
If you’ve been shopping around for a hoverboard or can’t figure out what to get a “hard to shop for” kid, I would definitely recommend a GOTRAX hoverboard. Ours gets lots of use around here and they really are at a great price point right now. Check out their deals online (free shipping too).
Can’t beat a toy that gets the kids out of the house! This is one the “big kids” can play with on Christmas morning too.
