Vecaro-Trek-X-Hoverboard

Main Features of Vecaro Trek-X Hoverboard

The first cool thing about Vecaro Trek-X is its real camo cover which is very suitable for off-road hoverboards. The TREK X model has 8.5″ wheels with rubber tires mounted on black aluminium rims enabling it to go over thoughest terrains like dirt, sand, gravel, grass, snow and mud. But don’t forget that it can’t go through deep snow or mud, keep it real!!! As we review only UL2272 certified hoverboards it’s understandable that Trek-X has passed all necessary UL requirements and tests. For extra stability Trek-X is equipped with AINiCo magnets with 100% copper wiring. Also, it is powered with Samsung 36V Li-ion battery pack as most reliable power source for hoverboards. with fully charged batteries you can drive as far as 12 miles (depending on riding style and terrain) with maximum speed of 10 mph. Be aware that you will need approximately 2.5 hours to fully recharge batteries.

Vecaro has developed mobile app for Vecaro Trek-X in order to give buyers extra experience during the ride. Through this mobile app rider will be able to control speed and force, set steering sensitivity, shift between beginner and advanced riding modes, check battery life indicator with 5 level battery indicator, turn on/off the music on built-in Bluetooth speakers etc. Also, Trek-X has integrated bright LED headlights for safer ride during the night.
