Marty Mcfly must have predicted in ‘Back to the Future’ that a flying skateboard will be 2015’s must have toy.  And his prediction was right!

Well maybe a little right.

Mcfly’s hoverboard, thanks to Doc Emmett Brown who invented the board, floats in the air and can speed up as fast as a car and can do trick in the air like a gliding bird.

It’s easy to ride a hovertrax by auto-balancing your body, you can dictate where and how you want your hovertrax to move by shifting your weight.  You can spin it, sway movement and if you’re a real pro, you may flip it.  But I think the last one is not adviceable.

Hovertrax wheels are equipped with its own electric motor, gyro sensor and an accelerometer that is controlled via your foot movements.

And the good thing with hovertrax, there is no gas needed. It only takes about an hour to charge the lithium-ion battery from a standard wall outlet.

Ages 15 and up can enjoy the fun riding a hovertrax.

But don’t forget, its like how ride your simple skateboard, knee pads, elbow pads, and most specially, always wear your helmet.

Prices for hovertrax may start at Php 7000 and up depending on the specs you are looking for.

Enjoy 2015 Christmas season with hovertrax!
