What Shoppers Should Know Before Buying One of the Hottest Items this Season.
Razor, the company licensed to manufacture and sell the authentic Hovertrax, cares about riders. With the prevalence of cheaply made imitations attempting to flood the market, safety concerns are paramount.
What is Hovertrax? It is an electrically motorized, computerized, gyroscopically-balance-assisted, independently articulated, dual-platform two-wheeled personal mobility system. The Razor Hovertrax does not operate “magically,” nor does it fly or float. Its movements are controlled by the angle of the rider’s feet relative to the ground. It is totally “hands-free” in operation, yet it can go forward, stop, turn and back up.
Razor provides three vital tips for consumers to make wise purchases, with a focus on rider safety as well as enjoyment.
- Avoid inferior imitations. Look for Razor Hovertrax, the genuine article, invented by Shane Chen, and manufactured to Razor quality standards. Razor has years of experience with electric ride-on products and rechargeable batteries. The company’s track record of standing behind their products is well known. Hovertrax uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Consumers should carefully read the user’s manual concerning charging.
- Review the Owner’s Manual. As with all products with wheels, Hovertrax moves when used, and therefore it is possible to fall off. The technology does allow the rider to control movement with feet alone, and Razor recommends that all users read and understand all of the safety, learning and riding tips in its Hovertrax owner’s manual to minimize risks of use.
- Take Appropriate Precautions. Falling from a moving product – such as a bicycle, skateboard or Hovertrax – can result in injuries. As always, care and practice can minimize the risk of unfortunate accidents. Razor certainly advocates careful learning, and use of safety equipment in all circumstances.
From day one, Razor has focused on providing the very best riding experience, combining cutting-edge technology, high-quality materials and innovation to deliver products designed to suit riders’ evolving lifestyles.
The Razor brand embodies the spirit of fun and freedom. The company was founded in 2000 with the introduction of its now legendary kick scooter, which quickly became an essential ride for anyone on the go. Today, Razor products are available worldwide, with a full range of wheeled goods to inspire and excite riders everywhere.
