The design of this Gyro Balancing Board makes it stand out from the crowd with its sleek appearance and bright LED lighting. But, apart from looking great, it also has plenty of other features. Protective covers shield the solid tires to guarantee a safe and smooth ride. The anti-friction rubber pedals are comfortable and ensure the driver won't slip whilst the auto-stabilising technology truly makes the Gyro Balancing Board the best hands-free and smart transport you can find.

Genuine LG Lithium-Ion 36v, 4.4AH battery offering longer battery life
Self-balancing and auto stabilising technology
Pressure sensitive board makes turning simple
10 miles top distance
10 miles per hour
2 hours charge time
Tire protective cover
Anti friction rubber pedals
Cool LED lights
Solid tires
Speed limit protection
Beginner mode where the board is less sensitive and slower allowing you to get to grips at your own pace
Max load 120kg (18.9 stone)
Only 10 minutes to learn
Includes carry bag
Genuine UK fused power charger

Also one nice thing about this version is it has LG batteries "Unlike the poor-quality boards which have been in the news recently all gyro boards are CE approved for the UK & EU and all are fitted with genuine LG batteries and BS1363 fused UK plugs and chargers. The well-publicised problems with other manufacturers devices have occurred as they use defective batteries and unfused power supplies. However, you can be reassured that, as mentioned above, this board is fitted with UK approved components and the plugs and chargers all comply with British Standards."

These do look pretty cool, very tempted, but not sure how often i would use it and the whole legal issue of where your allow to use these things as well puts me off a bit. still would be a bit of fun.

Does this come with after burners?

good price

If it has those can it reach 88MPH ? haha

Before long after the fad wears thin these things are going to be ridiculously cheap.

"not sure how often i would use it..." Our household has one, don't even ask(!) and it lives in the hallway. It is used to travel to the kitchen and front door, believe me the distance is short. Also during kitchen conversations its a great time to show of new 'skills'! Having said that it is such great fun, no doubt the novelty will wear off soon.

If it has one of those dodgy chargers then after burning comes as standard

where does ebuyer ship from?

hmm even ones from reputable retailers blow up. I wouldn't risk it. theyre also illegal to use on the pavement. they'll probably be worth like 50quid soon at most.

These deserve a lot of heat.

Ice cold for me what's the point if you can't use it on public rights of way!!!!!

It's best to use them on a perfectly flat surface, just for fun. I don't advise using one on a footpath as the unevenness makes them feel unsafe, and remember that's how someone died by falling into the road

Cheap lithium-ion batteries

Personally I wouldn't touch one. Substandard batteries can easily make it into the supply chain of reputable manufacturers and as seen by the videos posted, a lot of energy is stored in these poorly protected/unstable batteries. Its not beyond the realms of possibility that they could be banned all together in public places due to the fire and explosion risk.

A tool to make you look like a tool.

Where could you even use this anyway? They're not allowed on the road or footpaths, waste of £200, and that's not even mentioning the fire sale at the end lol

I would like to ride one of these.

But there is no way I would have one in my house. Not worth the risk.

Read good things about these, might get one for the mother in law.

I'll be glad when these do go out of fashion due to the Daily Mail whingers always mentioning that these are "illegal" to use on the pavement. What about the scooters, roller skates, y flickers, push bikes etc...?

Don't even get me started on mobility scooters clogging up pavements, shopping centres and shopping Isles travelling at speeds totally inappropriate for use in close proximity to people. I couldn't give a stuff if the last comment is politically incorrect, it's only what many think but dare not say.

I'm surprised this wasn't voted "hot"

The fires were due to overcharging because the poorly designed chargers don't switch off current to the battery when it reaches full charge. This has been sorted according to OP.

Seen quite a few about with teens on them, wouldn't be wanting one myself because I think I would get bored after about 2 minutes, but this seems to be £100 less than usual.

So hot.

I don't know how this didn't get more likes! Twisted metal was one of the greatest games ever produced!!

I wouldn't trust that in my house, don't want it to go up in flames

They have wheels......that roll on the ground.......it does not hover. Check eBay anyway Mike Tyson will be selling his cheap.

Gyro Balancing Board is the correct name the sooner they start calling them this the better, Also most parks you are able to ride them in in fact London’s Royal Parks, however, said that generally, hoverboards aren’t banned but may be restricted by signage in certain areas. A spokesperson added “We pride ourselves on ensuring the Royal Parks are open to everyone.”...

Thinking about it this is a good price for a proper CE approved one with the correct battery and charging cable people are voting this cold because they do not like them or because of the media has said they are illegal or a fire risk. legitimate ones were between £600 and £800 pounds before the fakes came in and ruined it for everybody.

Yes, too much hysteria and people believing everything in the media. Those people who won't have one in their house are probably charging batteries in other things without worrying about it.

That tickled me more than it should've..

My son has the Whizboard one it's actually really cool and a good laugh I can't ride it a lot more difficult than it looks, yet to venture properly outdoor on it yet but will take it to the park next week for a go, I'd say worth a look at that price

Just stand on a dumbbell for the same effect

Getaway vehicle of choice for aspiring Lucazade stealers.

No, not yet. This, along with the Flutterbye Fairy posted here, has prolonged the Xmas fun!. I've just learnt to go backwards on it and can do a Michael Jacksonesque spinning move - lol! At £199, with all apparent faults resolved, it's a steal.

I detained hundreds of consignments before Christmas due to the plugs being moulded and not having fuses in and other faulty wiring. The dodgy importers were also defrauding HM revenue massively by declaring the value of each board as a couple of dollars. the amount of lost Vat and import duty was enough to build a new health centre

Limit on voltage on toys is 24v in the UK. This appears to be 36v. It won't have any eu or British standard to it regardless of what the adverts may say. Avoid like the plague.
