When looking for a nice Christmas or birthday present, many parents have already asked themselves the question of whether a hoverboard is suitable for children. If someone in the immediate circle of acquaintances already has an e-balance board, children often express the desire to have their own hoverboard. But when is the right time to make a hoverboard accessible to children and what to look for when choosing a product? Manufacturers provide very different information on the Internet and therefore the following sections serve as orientation for the right choice:
How fit is my child?
The question of fitness is mainly directed at the coordinative abilities of the child. If this can already ride independently on roller skates/ice skates or on the skateboard, the switch to the electric board is all the easier. hoverboard weight limit body reflexes and the sense of balance should also be pronounced before the ride begins. The developmental status of children is very different in this respect.
In principle, it is recommended to make a hoverboard accessible to children only from the age of 8 and to always stay close by when driving.
Weight classes of children and hoverboards
A lightweight entry-level model is best suited as a hoverboard for children. The offspring should have a deadweight of at least 20 kg so that the in-board sensors work perfectly.
Select the e-balance board with setting options
A smaller inch size of the wheels favors a slightly lower stand. With a tire size of 6.5 inches to 10 inches, the Robway W1, W2, and W3 models are among the safest hoverboards the German market has to offer.
Individual functions can be set more precisely via the app, such as the speed range. This gives parents the opportunity to set a maximum speed at which their children are allowed to travel.
Expansion modules make the hoverboard interesting for children
For more support, an additional hoverboard grab bar provides a more comfortable stand. Another option is specially designed seats that transform an E-Balance board into an electric go-kart – a lot of fun for children and adults.
If the offspring is still a bit too small for a hoverboard, we have suitable products with our children’s electric cars, which are guaranteed to ensure bright children’s eyes.
Safety with the hoverboard
The topic of security is particularly important. We pay attention to the protection of sensitive components and offer only tested quality. This applies to batteries, the sensors, as well as to stability as a whole.
Unique product function enables safe ascent and descent
The automatic alignment of the stand areas ensures that users find an adjusted stand area. Here, driving does not become a wobbly game, because the technology works with it. Even when descending, it is an advantage that the feet are flat and the Robway keeps the balance of both stands.
Intuitive App Control
With Robway’s device-specific app, not only user data is secure. Individual functions can also be determined more precisely via app control. From the sensitivity of the sensors to the limitation of the speed range, many settings are possible.
Equipping a hoverboard with a seat
Why buy an electric go-kart when a matching seat turns the hoverboard into one? That’s what we thought and that’s why we offer our optional kart seats. In two variants, the Robway becomes a hoverboard with a seat.
The Robway Hoverseat attachment was developed as a universal seat for our hoverboards W1 – W3. With just a few simple steps, a full-fledged electric kart is created, which becomes a fast speedster on three wheels. The board can be mounted below the seat and the two handlebars provide an incomparable racing feeling. The hoverboard with a seat can be adjusted to the needs of large and small riders.
For the same models, the hoverboard drift attachment is also intended, with which the hoverboard becomes a four-wheeled vehicle. The highlight here is that the E-Board takes on the function of the front axle, which favors sleek turns. Even on bumpy surfaces, drifting is a lot of fun and is a real gain for young and older users.
So the Robway becomes a personal transporter: The handrail has already been briefly mentioned. Best electric skateboards if you want to buy a hoverboard and use it for particularly comfortable tours, you will find an inexpensive product upgrade in this attachment. Extendable between 40 and 90 cm, users of different sizes get along well with the sturdy Robway Balance rod.
