Features of Gotrax SRX Mini Hoverboard
The Gotrax SRX Mini is a super lightweight hoverboard with only 15 lbs able to lift the person up to 132 lbs. Its 2×150 W motors are powered with batteries tested & certified to UL 2272 safety standards thus giving the rider ability to ride as fast as 6 mph and up to 3 miles before recharging them, depending on speed and terrain. To recharge the batteries you will need about 3 hours.
In some descriptions of Gotrax SRX Mini you can find that it is made for all terrains but it isn’t true. We would recommend riding it on smooth pavement to prevent any possibility of toppling over. Even more, you should avoid uneven pavement, cracks, and pit holes which may be a bit rough for 6.5” tires. However, tires are having great grip on smooth surfaces. Also, don’t be fooled with some comments that SRX Mini is water resistant. It is in compliance with IP56 standard (splash and light rain resistant), meaning you can’t plunge it into water. Also, one of the coolest things about this hoverboard are its 2 built in handles making it easier to transport and 4 available colors. If you are looking for suitable hoverboard for your kids this could be it, especially because it has very affordable price for the quality presented.
