In case something throws them off balance, a hard surface awaits them. It’s not harmless at all because we know that some hoverboards can go as fast as up to 20 mph.
In order to protect yourself, and especially your children, we recommend that you get a good helmet. There are a large number of helmet manufacturers, and some of the most famous are Triple 8, Protec, Bell Segment etc.
