Because so many hoverboards burst into flames last Christmas??

Then there is the name, it is known as "passing off" and/or "deceptive practices", when you name your product to confuse consumers with a well established and known supplier - in this case Segway.

As you now can't use them in public what's the point of them? I wouldn't pay 200 quid so my kid could ride it around the garden!

Because something like this more practical and for less and wont burst into flames. These chinese segway things are widely banned on uk streets anyway so they are completely useless.

These things haven’t been regularly bursting into flames since the UK was flooded with lots of dodgy ones in the run up to Christmas 2015. Many were pulled from sale or recalled. That’s no longer the case; lots are CE marked and retailers go to great pains to demonstrate how things have changed and how their products are safe and meet safety standards.

In terms of legality, all vehicles that can be ridden are banned from pavements (likely exception to wheelchairs and no-one wants to try and prosecute someone using a mobility scooter!):

“If any person shall wilfully ride upon any footpath or causeway by the side of any road made or set apart for the use or accommodation of foot passengers; or shall wilfully lead or drive any horse, ass, sheep, mule, swine, or cattle or carriage of any description, or any truck or sledge, upon any such footpath or causeway; or shall tether any horse, ass, mule, swine, or cattle, on any highway, so as to suffer or permit the tethered animal to be thereon.” The Highways Act 1835 Section 72 (England and Wales)

Scooters, hover boards and bicycles are all banned from pavements.

There has been a case of a person being prosecuted for using a hover board on the pavement confirming the law however enforcement has been limited. We see kids going up, down and around our cul-de-sac on them all the time and have yet to see the police come to enforce The Highways Act. Others experiences may be similar.

There are still many places you can use a hoverboard including many parks as well as private land where owner allows it.

Our eldest wants one now and we’re lucky to have places we can go with one - instead of the road/pavement.

As I repeat ad nauseam, the CE mark is worth diddly squat.


And I was referring to the fact they are trying to pass themselves off as Segway; which suggests any safety engineering or CE mark is just as suspect.

Is there any hovertrax offer?
