    AWESOME ATTACHMENT, AWESOME COMPANY!

    Listen, hands down, the BEST attachment for ANY hoverboard!! I have been watching this through production, before it was produced and in the making. So when I saw it on the shelf, I HAD TO TRY IT! I will be honest, right out of the box, during assembly, one of the spring loaded cylinders that return the handles back to neutral was broken. I emailed the company (phone number doesn't work) and they promptly emailed me back. They not only sent me the ENTIRE bracket assembly that holds 2 spring cylinder parts, they sent me 2 full brackets just in case one would fail in the future. They ALSO sent it 1-2 days shipping. No hastle. Easy to fix. Now, I am about 140lbs, 5'8", 35yrs old. I sit my 11mo old son on my lap EVERY day and we ride this thing SEVERAL blocks through the neighborhood. ALSO, no offense Hover-1 company, but I have this buggy attached to the Jetson V6 hoverboard! Honestly though, just throwing this out there so everyone reading knows it WILL fit any board. My Jetson has 8" wheels, I wouldn't recommend this buggy on a board with wheels any larger. All in all, by far, the BEST attachment for ANY hoverboard! As promised, hover-1, It feels great leaving the first review and it's a pleasure to share my positive experience with your company.

    GARBAGE!

    Products bought from Best Buy for Christmas. Came with defective parts that were called about Christmas day. The cylinders that go on eth front and back of the levers were defective. In the mean time, I pressed them back together in a vice, but it was a temporary fix. Took weeks for the company to respond. By the time they did, the wheels on both were destroyed - the bearings came apart on them so they were rolling on just the plastic outside of the wheel turning around the now-empty bearing. Hover-1 sent new wheels but no cylinders, even though I was told by the guy (by email) he packed them himself. Finally exhausted all recourse with hover-1 and addressed Best Buy who told me it had now been over the return period (30 days) and they would do nothing. It was about the 12th of January...clearly the two weeks they sat in the closet waiting for Christmas would have been better spent finding out just how hollow the warrantee with BOTH companies is. Thsi product is crap, and Best Buy is willingly peddling it. You'd get more enjoyment out of taking the cash amount in sibgles and setting them on fire one by one.

    Poor materials

    Do NOT buy this. We bought two as Christmas presents for our boys, on 12/14. Within 2-4 days of using it, the whole front wheel complex broke apart...it’s made of a cheap plastic. We contacted the company who is supposed to be sending us a replacement wheel complex, however after my second son tried his out (2-3 weeks later as we were waiting on a hover board replacement), his front wheel did the same thing. No additional insurance purchased from Best Buy and was told today I had 15 days from purchase to return it. We didn’t even give them to the boys until 11 days after purchasing. Will be contacting the company again to see if they can remedy the situation. Just don’t buy this brand of hover cart or if you do buy it from Best Buy be sure you’ve used it well before your 15 days is up so you can get a refund if yours also breaks.

    Great product, confusing manual

    I saw a child riding one of these types of scooters earlier in the year, so I wanted to get one for my son. I bought the hoverboard and cart at the same time. The cart is well made, seems very strong, and my son is enjoying it. The only complaint is that the instructions are not that easy to follow. For example, it showed to place a self adhesive pad on the cart in a certain location. Turns out, that's the wrong location, and it can't go there. After some analysis, I figured out where the pad is supposed to go to protect the hoverboard. Secondly, strapping the board to the cart isn't the most straight forward directions. It takes some doing, but once it's done, it's a lot of fun. Last thing, make sure the hoverboard is in expert mode, because otherwise, the cart controls aren't quite sensitive enough to really steer it easily. All that said, I recommend this product. It's a lot of fun.

    We just got this at Christmas time and the weather hasn't given us a ton if opportunities to use it, but we've taken advantage of what good weather we've had and took this out for a spin at least a dozen times. What can I say? It is so much fun! The kids love it and so do I! The only down side is that you have to be careful. The hover boards themselves are only meant to go so fast, and when you add the buggy you're then not having to worry about balance so you tend to go much faster than intended for the board. But our boards give a warning beep and we know to slow it down. Other than that, no complaints. Well worth the purchase and plan to buy another one. We have multiple brands of boards and this works well with all of them!

    Super fun addition to hoverboard!!

    Daughter loves her hover board seat! It’s sturdy enough for adults too! Placement of seat covers power button on board...poor design in that aspect. However the product is great so far & a lot of fun. It was easy to assemble & easy to attach & remove from hover board. I love that you can buy this attachment to add to a product you already have! Extremely disappointed in Best Buy for shipping this Christmas gift in its original box as if it had just come off the shelf. My daughter’s big Christmas gift surprise was ruined when she found it delivered on the porch in its original packaging! So upsetting!!

    Fun add-on that kids really like

    Got this as xmas gift for kids, they use it more on the board then off, sturdy construction so far. Fairly easy to assemble, have a little patience, things fit snug. Not terrible to get on/off hover board with adjustable leg length. Comes with extra set of velcro straps, nice touch that didn't cost manufacturer but gets the consumer nod. Only thing that could make this better is if it were $10 cheaper. But compared to other devices out there, this is probably the better price point unless you find a better sale/clearance price.

    Works great with some minor flaws

    Bought this for a used hoverboard that I got locally. It works well. It is very easy to connect the hoverboard to the cart and the velcro is very strong so there is no fear of it falling apart while riding. There are two flaws to this cart for me: 1) If you are taller than 6', this is probably going to be a little uncomfortable 2) There is a risk of flipping over feet over head if you have a powerful hoverboard. There is a lot of torque and there are times where my feet lifted up when I "punched" it.

    The tools/screws seemed badly threaded. The directions were simple except when explaining the “lockers”. Recommended 15+. My 11 yr kid loves it! The Velcro’s That attach the buggy to hoverboard are strong and feel durable. 4 spare straps are a plus! The seat is a bit flimsy and a little narrow for “adults hips” Buggy is easy to control, kids will enjoy riding this outside in the warm weather!

    I got this for my son for Christmas. It was pretty easy to assemble and is super easy to put on/take off the hoverboard. It is sturdy, seems to be well made, and looks more comfortable than other similar kart attachments. It would be nice if there was something more substantial to put your feet on but otherwise we have absolutely no complaints after almost 3 months of regular (indoor) use.

    Sturdy but wanting more

    It’s cheap enough but I would rather have many other options before this one. It’s not the worst build but for an adult or a rough child this cart won’t last. The front wheel is a dolly wheel and will not take the beating of roads and gravel and it’s to small for grass. The ride is a bit bumpy unless your riding this on very smooth cement or asfault. If your board is heavy-duty or your in the grass and dirt then find a heavier board like the Jetkart2.0.

    My son is 12 years old, and he and his friends absolutely love this item! The only thing that kept me from giving a full five stars is that it was a bit difficult to get together, in that the screws did not align easily, This made putting it together a bit more time-consuming than it probably needed to be. Overall it is great fun & I would recommend it.

    My daughter got this for Christmas for her hover board and has so much fun on it. I also like it because I feel like she’s safer sitting and not standing ;) The con,she can only ride for about a half hour on a full charge and it takes hours to recharge :( For size reference, my daughter is 5’3”

    Got this for my 9 yr. Old grandson for Christmas to go with his Hoverboard. He is into bikes, motorcycles anything with wheels to pop wheelie, drift so forth. The hoverboard takes balancing and goes a little slow until you practice. But hook up this buggy and he is off like lightning. Drifting , doing wheelies and going fast and loving it. Big winner.

    We got this for my 10 year old son for Christmas and he loves it! He actually rides it around the house on the hardwood floors. It gives a very smooth ride and it’s agile enough to move around furniture and through doorways. I’ve tried it too and it really is super fun! My son easily takes it on and off of his hover board himself. We have not yet tried it outside.

    Item was easy to put together out of the box. It did require some maneuverability to use the supplied tools and tighten the hardware. The product had defective parts on it that fell apart the minute my son started using it. It was a little pressed bearing/ shock absorber by the wherl. There is actually four of them. It popped apart and there was no way to get it back together.

    The buggy was great at first. My son loved it as a birthday gift to attached to his all ready owned hover board. It was awesome FOR THREE DAYS. On the third day his hover board stopped moving, it will turn on but not go. So his present is useless and it destroyed something he already owned and used a lot that we cannot now afford to replace.

    I purchased a Hover board for Christmas and then purchased this buggy as an accessory for the same child as a birthday gift a few months later. I put it together easily myself in about 15 minutes, and the kids were enjoying it right away. It was a great choice. They use it all the time on the driveway and sidewalk.

    Bought 2. One works perfect. Unfortunately, the second one was defective and had to return it. It not easy to find in stores, so I had to drive one hour to one store, and another hour to the other store. So 3 stars as average, one product 5 stars, and the other 0 since it was defective.

    Bought for my 7 year old son that only weighs 52 pounds and after only using for 5 days front wheel came completely apart to where the buggy couldn’t be used anymore. Was only used on the street. I Like the product was just disappointed if broke after 5 days use.
