IO HAWK introduced in 2015 the worldwide first original hoverboard, the “IO HAWK ONE”. This was followed by escooters and eBikes. IO HAWK is now launching a new revolutionary means of transport: With the “NXT Skates” the eBoard pioneer presents a new eMobility concept.
The “IO NXT SKATES” are reminiscent of two small hoverboards that each has a tire with an outer diameter of 3.5 inches. Weighing in at just 2.8 kilogram per board, they are ultra-agile and perfect for cruising as well as for cool tricks and acrobatic stunts. With an engine output of 250 watts, the Cruiser reaches a top speed of 12 km / h. The user steers the eSkates, in the same way as riding a classic hoverboard, by shifting his weight slightly in the desired direction of travel. The maximum load is 100 kg. The “NXT SKATES” are charged in about 1.5 hours. Thanks to the 54 Wh batteries, a distance of up to 8 km can be covered. The LED bulbs sitting on the rubber bumpers not only ensure that you are not overlooked in the dark, but also always indicate the state of charge of the battery.
If the eSkaters run out of breath while on the go, they can be easily transported thanks to the low weight and the side straps. Included in delivery is a connecting rod that transforms the individual Hovershoes into a conventional hoverboard in no time. For this purpose, the rod is simply mounted between the two skates.
The housing of the “IO HAWK NXT SKATES” designed in matt black and blue is splash-proof to IP65.
The “IO HAWK NXT SKATES” will be available from July 2018 at a recommended retail price of 549 euros per pair and can be preordered for the special preorder price of just 499 euros at iohawk-europe.com.
