Did you know that you can turn your hoverboard into a hoverkart with an easy-to-use attachment? Suddenly, your two-wheeled hoverboard is a three-wheeled kart inviting you to enjoy a whole new raft of riding adventures.
How do hoverkarts work? It’s really very simple. You take your hoverboard, such as the 6.5” Classic Official Hoverboard and turn it into a gokart in minutes with a hoverkart kit. You can buy the hoverboard as part of a hoverkart bundle for just £229.99.
The kart attachment clips on and off in a matter of seconds and is fully adjustable to suit all rider heights and weights. It gives you an extra wheel with foot rest, a seat and hand-operated levers for movement control.
Hoverkart instructions are included with the bundle, along with a protective carry case and a fast CE & UL certified charger.
How do hoverkarts work?
The hoverkart attachment turns your hoverboard into a go-kart,. The seat is supported by a metal frame and the hand operated control sticks are attached to the foot sensors on the hoverboard by a strap. So, rather than manoeuvre using your body weight via the footpads, you do so using the levers.
How to ride a hoverkart
Riding a hoverkart is easy and it’s much more stable than riding the board standing up. There’s no need to find your balance, because the seat and the hoverkart frame make it a stable ride.
You lift both handles to go backwards and push them down to go forwards.
The rider turns left by leaving the left handle in position and pushing down the right handle – they do the opposite to turn right, i.e leave the right handle in position and push down on the left.
To accelerate, you push the handles down and to slow down and brake, you pull them back.
What can you do with a hoverkart?
The hoverkart kit means you can do tricks on your hoverboard, such as wheelies. You can also race it.
If the ground is bumpy, you could be in for a rough ride, but you can buy hoverkart with suspension if you’d rather not feel every rattle and vibration. The Pro Suspension Hoverkart kit clips on like an ordinary hoverkart attachment. It’s a bit sturdier and comes with a bucket racing seat that is supported by two suspension pins at the back giving you a super smooth ride. It’s ideal for teens or adults who want to enjoy a hoverkart experience.
It also has a lever that enables you to adjust the frame and the position of the seat making it suitable for a range of rider heights and weights.
Safety and maintenance
After using your hoverkart, you should remove any dirt or debris, before storage. Keep it indoors, in a dry area.
It is wise to wear a helmet and gloves while riding a hoverkart. Don’t ride too quickly or make sudden turns and try and avoid steep slopes. And avoid areas where there are other vehicles – remember, you aren’t allowed to ride a hoverboard or hoverkart on public roads.
