ABOUT US

Frankly talk we would never dreamed about that hype around the new way of transportation, will take such a dimension. Unfortunately, every success have a downsides and we are often very dismayed when we receive reports of cheap Hoverboards are broken or burning, because: This form of transportation is still the future of movement! The IO Hawk has always been one of the most expensive boards on the market. The prices we not made for profit, we made it for the highest value quality of the product. For this reason there are no damage reports with more than 2.5 million boards sold by IO Hawk.

For our team, since January 2015 it was always special moments to watch how people doing, which drive for the first time on an IO Hawk. Seeing the excitement in his eyes was the greatest gift for us, bigger than any profiteering other companies which deliberately inferior quality goods to sell, thereby endangering the safety of customers.

We want to make a difference and we love all alternative means of transportation, which additionally protect the environment and above all safe. We will continue to work on new versions (hopefully legaly on thr street soon) and are grateful for any feedback from you! We are often have questions: how the development of IO Hawk are started. For this reason, here for you more information about the development …….
