When shopping for my husband I find it difficult. Why is it that the closer you are to someone the harder it is to get them something for Christmas? This year he helped out a bit by dropping hints. One of those hints is a hover board (self balancing board), so my friends over at GoTrax helped me out by sending me one! Just last week I got the Hoverfly XL (pictured).


  • Safety is the key to the GOTRAX GALAXY.  Magnify your multiverse fun and minimize worry to none; all electrical, battery, and charger systems are tested and certified to UL 2272 safety standard guides.
  • Reach interstellar scooter speeds of up to 7.4 mph for up to 12 miles on a single, full charge!
  • The GOTRAX HOVERFLY XL self-balancing scooter aka hoverboard boasts top-ranking torque powered by dual 350W motors.
  • Become a hoverboard master faster! This self-balancing scooter aka hoverboard was designed for intergalactic expeditions, but operating the GOTRAX HOVERFLY XL is not rocket science.
  • Go from Space Cadet to Space Commander in just 5 minutes Earth time using the quick and easy Training Mode feature.
  • Feel like you’re floating in zero gravity with the HOVERFLY XL’s space-age gyroscopic self-balancing scooter technology.
  • Need to dodge asteroids or meteoroids? Your GOTRAX HOVERFLY XL hoverboard has a 0-degree turning radius, non-slip foot pads, and fender foot guards.
  • Amplify your GOTRAX HOVERFLY XL with Bluetooth and mobile app pairing capabilities.
  • Blast your favorite space jams and unlock exclusive riding features with the HOVERFLY XL built-in Bluetooth Speaker and iOS/Android mobile app.
  • Travel in space-age style with the HOVERFLY XL’s cosmic colors and lunar-bright LED lights.
  • With the HOVERFLY XL’s high-quality construction and 220-lb weight capacity, your whole family will want to join your hoverboard fleet.

So I gave it a quick try this morning. Let’s just say I am not the most coordinated person in the world, but I quickly got the hang of it. Surprised the heck out of me! Just on a sidenote make sure you wear protective gear – Gotrax can help you out with that too.

I am pretty sure my husband will absolutely love it. I have it all charged up and ready for him on Christmas morning.

The GoTrax Hoverfly XL is designed for riders ages 8 and up.  It has a minimum rider weight of 44 pounds and can carry a max weight of 220 pounds. Top speed is 7.8mph and will cruise up to 12 miles on a full charge!
