The future is now: introducing the self-balancing Razor Hovertrax 1.5 hoverboard

Razor Hoverboard lit upHoverboards are real, you guys. Decades of waiting was worth it, and self-balancing, self-propelled hoverboards are finally a reality.

I was only a few years old when I decided that I wanted a hoverboard. Just like the rest of the kids from the 80’s, Back to the Future had sold me on hovering instead of scooting. Imagine hovering around town effortlessly, defying the laws of physics and never breaking a sweat. Awesome, right?

The thing is, I can barely balance on two wheels, so no wheels is definitely not going to happen for me. That’s why I’m thankful that the hoverboards of my generation have two wheels, but still have all the awesome self-propelling properties I fell in love with.

I’m extra thankful that the Razor hoverboards have lots of features to help me get on the board and stay on the board – safely. I was thrilled to check out the Razor Hovertrax 1.5 this month and test my balance and skill around the house while having a blast. I cannot wait to cruise on it as a family when the weather warms up a bit outside and take it for a spin around the neighborhood. For now, it’s a glorious house-hoverboard, which is more fun than you might think. Razor Hovertrax foot grips

Easy to mount and maneuver

Turn on the Razor Hovertrax 1.5 and it will come to life right in front of you, its on-deck LEDs lighting up and the board self-balancing before your eyes. This is thanks to Razor’s own exclusive EverBalance technology that automatically levels the Hovertrax 1.5 for an easier mount. No more grabbing the nearest wall, railing, or willing friend – the Hovertrax does it all for you, making mounting and dismounting as easy as stepping onto an escalator. Plus, it’s really fun to watch, as it seems like the hoverboard has its own personality as it moves on its own.

Step up on the deck of the Razor Hovertrax 1.5, and you’ll feel it instantly, the feeling they call “Nirvana on wheels.” We’re talking an impossibly smooth ride that truly feels like you’re gliding on air – without all that pesky multi-dimensional balancing.Hovertrax hoverboard

Maneuvering is also incredibly easy, and far more intuitive than I had thought it would be. I was worried that foot-controlled steering would be awkward and not nearly as responsive as I would like, but again, my fears were for naught. Even a tiny shift of weight can turn the Hovertrax, which makes maneuvering as easy as leaning ever-so-sightly to turn.

Features of the Razor Hovertrax 1.5

Indoors or out, long cruises or 360-degree spins, the Hovertrax packs in all the fun to make every ride an adventure. With its powerful, 25.2-volt lithium-ion battery pack made with authentic LG, the Hovertrax 1.5 gives you 45-min of blissful, supercharged riding. Made of steel and a shatter-resistant polymer body with awesome front blue LED light bars and anti-slip rubber traction pads, the Hovertrax looks beautiful and sleek.

Its dual, 135-watt {cruising power}, 350-watt {peak power} hub-driven motors are nearly silent compared with other electric ride-ons and toys. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, but the quiet motor blew me away, even when using it indoors while sneakily showing off my hover board skills to my husband while the kids were in the next room.Razor Hovertrax

I bet you want to know how safe it is, right? You heard rumors and you’re learly of hoverboards.. I get it. That’s why I was thrilled that Razor was the first US brand to receive the UL 2272 listing for safety, and Hovertrax 1.5 meets or exceeds the highest fire and electrical standards. Of course, riding the board is a whole other safety issue, and that requires helmets, pads, and absolute parental supervision, all which we have at the ready.

You can buy Razor Hovertrax on the Razor.com site, Amazon, and you can even find them in stores at many Walmarts, Kohls, Best Buys, and Targets nationwide.
