What's a Hoverboard?

"Hoverboard" is the terrible name given, thanks to the famous movie "Back to the Future" to a new device/vehicle still looking for its identity. It is also called "Self Balancing Scooter". The latter, even if uglier than the first one, better describe the working principles. In fact it is an electrical vehicle with two parallel wheels wich diameter may change from 4,5 to 10 inch. The most common model is the 6,5", the best compromise, under our point of view, is the 8". Still portable and perfect for different kind of ground. The main feature, the most innovative one, of these products is the ability to balance both scooter and rider on the two parallel wheels thanks to some gyroscopes.

What's the best wheels diameter for my hoverboard?

We think the 8" is the best one and we use that size for our CommuteBoard. The 4,5" is only for kids, the 10" one make the devise to big, bulky, heavy and not so easy to be carried along. The 6,5" got too many limitation on uneven ground, grass and more in general in no perfectly flat pavement. The 8" one with a high quality tire is the perfect choice and compromise.

I'm a skilled "Surfer" will it be easy for me to ride it?

This is classic a bit boring....and wrong. Being a surfer is a basically a good thing, but it won't help a lot the use of the Hoverboard. Or better, you do not need to be a surfer to use it. Just like you don't need to have excellent equilibrium skills. The Hoverboard will do the job and will take care of you. You are only asked to stay relaxed and as natural as possible. If you move too much trying to balance it would be like an interference with the "Self Balancing Scooter" whose main feature is to do that for you. Every time you move it needs to recalculate everything and give the proper instructions to the motors. So...take it easy and enjoy it.

Indicativamente parliamo di un'autonomia di 15 Km. Alcuni vi diranno 20 Km. Di fatto il dato varia al variare di:

  3. Numero di arresti e ripartenze, Stop&Go
  4. Pendenze affrontate
  5. Temperatura ambiente.

E' di fatto vero che test di laboratorio diano 20 km, ma il test di laboratorio prevede un peso conducente di  50 kg, una sola partenza e velocità costante di 7 km/h in totale pianura e senza mai fermarsi una volta.

La Powerseed CommuteBoard dichiara ogni componente utilizzato. Riconoscibile sin dalla scatola, ogni componente è marchiata Powerseed.
