Ninebot GoKart Pro Review: The Best Hoverboard Mini Kart
The Ninebot GoKart Pro is the latest variant of GoKart Kit for hoverboards by Segway. First of all, you need to know that this is not just an attachment for your Ninebot hoverboard. This is fully loaded 2-in-1 detachable GoKart and Hoverboard. You get 2 products in one, and you can easily detach the kit and use it as hoverboard only.
This new and upgraded GoKart kit by Segway has more aggressive look, new upgraded tires and steering system enabling the rider to drift like a pro, high-strength steel frame, 4 riding modes and it speeds like no other go kart on the market with top speed of 23 mph.
The Ninebot GoKart Pro features dual 500 W (1000 W combined with peak output of 2400 W) brushless hub motors it is able to speed up to 23 mph, making it the fastest GoKart on the market. Because of that it has combination of electronic brake and mechanical handbrake. Brakes are capable to stop the GoKart Pro from top speed to O mph in less than 20 feet. Also, the Ninebot GoKart Pro has 4 riding modes, Safety, Regular, Sports and Race Mode, and you can easily adjust those modes to rider’s skill level and age. Of course, the battery drains fastest during Race Mode. Depending on mode selected top speeds are limited to 5 mph, 11 mph, 17.4 mph and 23 mph.
This GoKart comes with adjustable frame, so it fits riders between 4’5” to 6’3”, and the maximum load capacity is up to 220 lbs. So, it fits kids, teenagers and adults. The producer recommend it for riders older than 14 years.
The Ninebot GoKart Pro is not just an attachment like other mini kart attachments. It comes fully equipped with Ninebot hoverboard, so you are getting 2 products in one, a Ninebot hoverboard with cutting-edge TPE rear tires enabling the rider to drift like a pro and a detachable GoKart. I must say that the only downside of this incredible GoKart is its price of $1.999,99, but it is expected since you get fully loaded Ninebot Mini Kart.
