GOTRAX HOVERFLY KART

“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.”

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,” says Chief Marketing Officer Jason Wakefield. “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.”

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.
