The Typical Specifications Of The Hoverboard Cart
Hoverboard carts are the latest accessories that allow the riders to sit rather than stand up. The cart has definitely improved the safety of the rider while increasing the possible uses of the hoverboard. Demand for both self-driving scooters and carts are strong since they are being converted into go karts. Parents are likely to add carts to their kid’s hoverboards for safety reasons.
Hoverboard Carts are also great gifts for people who would rather ride the hoverboard as a bike than as a skateboard. The designs of the hoverboard carts are varied depending on the purpose and the manufacturer. But the typical specification of all hoverboard carts is almost the same. The basic design is also geared for converting the hoverboard to a go kart.
Typical Specs of the Hoverboard Cart
- Base Stand (Adjustable Length)
- Back Holder Seat (Adjustable)
- Two Direction Control Levers (Right and Left)
- Four Straps or Belt (For securing the cart to the hoverboard)
- Feet Stand
- Front Wheel (On the front end, below the feet stand)
The Base Stand or Frame
The base stand is typically made of either steel or titanium steel. Either material is strong enough to accommodate a rider within the specified limit. Many models also feature heavy duty springs that act as shock absorbers for the cart. Frames with springs normally make the cart more stable and safer to ride as well. Most models feature the same colors namely, white, black or blue.
The size of hoverboard cart frames range from 31x24x12 inches up to 35x24x16 inches. It’s adjustable in order to accommodate the size or height of the rider. A typical cart frame can adjust to at least 4 inches for length and height. The weight of the frame alone is less than 20 pounds for the small ones but the bigger ones can weigh more than that. The frame is versatile since it can fit to the three hoverboard sizes namely, 6.5, 8 and 10 inch wheels.
Maximum Weight for Hoverboard Cart
The maximum weight it can carry is the same as to what your hoverboard normally carries. The 6.5 inch wheel board is typically limited to drivers weighing 220 lbs. and below. But the 8 and 10 inches can carry a load weight of up to 260 to 350 lbs.
Hoverboard Cart Seat Specifications
Many hoverboard carts can carry riders who weigh more than 200 lbs. But some riders can have some issues with the seat. Kids and many adults can fit in most hoverboard cart seats. Some seats are simply not wide enough for those with big hips or thighs.
Difference between Pneumatic and Solid Rubber
Most if not all hoverboard carts have the same basic design. But we can divide frames into two categories with regards to type of front wheels. Some frames are equipped with the 3-inch solid rubber type while others use the 6 inch pneumatic rubber tire. Most drivers favor the pneumatic type since it allows the hoverboard to run smoothly even on rough surfaces.
Installing a Hoverboard Cart
It’s easy to install and attach the cart to your hoverboard. There are no bolts or screws involved; just strap the belts around your hoverboard based on the instructions included in the kit. If the straps appear damaged or flimsy, contact the vendor to have it replaced. Once you have securely strap the belts, you are now ready to drive your hoverboard cart.
About the Hoverboard Cart Levers
- Speed is controlled by the two levers.
- To move forward or increase the speed, push the control levers down.
- To stop or decrease the speed, pull the levers up.
- Basically, you operate the cart just like a normal hoverboard except that you are sitting down and holding the control levers.
- One thing to remember is that keeping the lever up will cause the hoverboard cart to go in reverse.
The hoverboard cart has given people another reason to buy and ride the self-driving scooter. The different models available out there have generally the same features. But they do differ in terms of materials, load capacity, size of the seats, and even the front tires composition. A single feature can easily affect the cart’s stability and capability. Basically, each model has specs that offer advantages and disadvantages for riders.
