Just ordered these for my sons birthday, weird choice of brand name for a hover product. Saw them on Very and Littlewoods for £149 and seen them on eBay for a similar price but it's nice to have the option of a store where you can click and collect

I was very naive thinking it actually hovers and was really amazed of the technological advances.
Just tested them (don't tell my son), very easy to ride even for a middle aged man

Just quoted off the website mate to be honest. I'm not a scientist and I never designed these. Your theory is sound but I'd say you'd need to do some more research.

Meh
I'm an adult and think these look amazing. And deadly. And ridiculous. All at the same time - I can't resolve how I feel, tbh.

Pretty good price for something like this though - compared to how much this sort of thing used to cost.

Sadly the range wont increase proportionately with weight, once moving it becomes less of a factor, more to do with terrain etc.
Live like the Jetsons
So like powered roller skates, cool
How do these fair with a middle-aged, slightly overweight man-child?

100kg user weight so should be good.
Why did I just buy a pair of hovershoes?? I think they are re-brand of 'Gyrooshoes' which has a few more search results. Edit: Oh yeah someone has found a video above

I got a pair of those from another brand. They run perfectly on a smooth surface, but you will lose your balance if you go over any bump or something similar.

I guess if you stand on one and carry the other one then swap when the battery dies...

No one is getting this to replace walking to shops (You can't even go or down a curb), they are for 10 mintues of entertainment.
