GOTRAX™, a Denver-based brand of electric rideables driven by imagination and innovation with a focus on science and education, today unveils its HOVERFLY KART, an accessory capable of transforming any one of its line of HOVERFLY hoverboards (or most any self-balancing scooter) into a fast, nimble, three-wheel electric go-kart.
When connected to a HOVERFLY hoverboard, the HOVERFLY KART allows the rider to sit comfortably in the race-inspired bucket seat and accelerate, stop and steer with intuitive hand controls via the ergonomic space-foam handlebar grips. The HOVERFLY KART harnesses the space-age gyroscopic technology of hoverboards to create an entirely new electric-powered experience.
The HOVERFLY KART expands the options for the fun and exploration that are possible with our HOVERFLY line. It takes the truly unique experience of riding a hoverboard and transforms it into something else entirely. It really is like having two very different, very fun e-rideables in one.
Says Chief Marketing Officer Jason Wakefield.
Featuring a sturdy, adjustable, steel tube frame to accommodate most children and some adults, the HOVERFLY KART is engineered to work with self-balancing scooters with wheel sizes ranging from 6.5 to 10 inches.
Utilizing the 0-degree turning radius of the attached hoverboard, the kart’s front end pivots on a precision caster wheel, making it incredibly maneuverable yet stable, cable of riding on a greater variety of surfaces than most hoverboards.
When paired with a fully UL 2272-certified GOTRAX™ HOVERFLY, the HOVERFLY KART is driven by dual 350-watt electric motors producing top-ranking torque (compared to typical competitors’ 250-300 watts) capable of propelling riders up to 7.4 miles-per-hour for 12 miles on a single charge. When paired with a HOVERFLY XL or HOVERFLY PLUS, the HOVERFLY KART can reach speeds of up to 11.2 miles-per-hour in pro mode (app required).
The GOTRAX™ HOVERFLY KART retails for $69 with a special introductory pre-holiday price of $59 and is available now at GOTRAX.com and other fine retailers.
