With Jetson’s new JetKart, kids can transform virtually any hoverboard into a go-kart-styled vehicle complete with a seat and a set of handlebars. In the box are various parts for assembly, and instructions on how to put it all together (including product registration page for new owners, and a details on their limited one-year warranty).
Compatible with all 6.5-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch wheel hoverboards, the JetKart offers unique fun for kids too jaded by riding just a self-balancing scooter. As if! It’s essentially an exoskeleton with the hoverboard acting as its motor for movement. Among the aluminum bars is a leather seat, nylon straps, foam handles, and foot support.Before kids can put their hoverboards to new use, they’ll have to grab a parent and start the assembly process—which involves both building the kart and attaching it to a two-wheeled scooter. Assembly is fairly straightforward, with easy-to-follow instructions and a clear diagram of what’s what. Once built, the JetKart offers light-up rear wheels, an ergonomically designed footrest, and an adjustable seat, a fork, and brackets that help it fit different size boards. And thanks to the adjustable fork length, the JetKart can accommodate kids all ages and all sizes, so it’s great for the whole family.
Once the kart is fully assembled, kids can go ahead and attach their hoverboard to underneath the seat. The metal brackets securely fasten the board in place, while the Quickgrab straps allow riders attach or detach their board with ease.
Once kids have nestled in, they can turn on their board and start to cruise. Riders can apply various degrees of pressure onto the handlebars to accelerate as they see fit. The pressure on the handlebars mimics the foot and ankle tilts that the board is used to responding to. Kids should apply light pressure until they get the hang of it.
As a precaution, kids should always be sure to power their hoverboard off before getting on or off the JetKart. This ensures that it won’t accelerate unexpectedly before riders sit down or stand up.
Kids will enjoy doing twists and turns with this new ride-on, one that allows them to take their go-karts on-the-go.
The JetKart comes in blue, green, and black.
