If you are searching for a high-quality hoverboard but at a more affordable price than the ones which saturate the market, look no further than the CHO Spider Wheels Series Hoverboard.
The popularity of the “self-propelled mobility” craze has been a long time coming since the first movie in a series of films, “Back to the Future,” hit the cinema back in the 1980s. Why, it is only the first movie ever to have given the idea of an effortless transport that was unique and innovative from what was possible back in those days, and even to this day.
While this rendition of the “hoverboard,” which was supposedly inspired after the film, is a far cry to the full ideals of the depicted technology, it nonetheless achieves a state that is functional to say the least; even adding some novelty to the way we move places with it.
Not only does the hoverboard makes going from point A to point B an effortless process, the sheer display of riding it invokes attention from the people around which certainly adds to its overall appeal.
The creation of the hoverboard was truly an ingenious idea whose prominence had subsequently produced clones, each of which adding to the congestion of what is to become a plethora of hoverboard products.
But there is a problem in that picture—instead of developing similar products that is at par or better-quality design than the leading brands, inferior products began surging the market and set at a price that is slightly cheaper than the main contenders. As a result, the market has been plagued with expensive products whose pricing deviates little from the major brands.
CHO Sports attempts to disrupt this trend by offering premium-quality products at a price that is substantially more affordable—oftentimes, 20% to 50% less costly— than the leading brands, such as with the Spider Wheels Series.
How does CHO manage it with such a price tag?
Simply, by cutting off the “middle man” or the “retailer” which typically goes in between the manufacturer and the consumers, the hoverboard developer sells directly to buyers.
This gives CHO the deciding power to set its price that is significantly more affordable than those which have to go through the middle man.
Now, “cheaper” in this context might seem that CHO Sports, possibly an obscure brand for many, is nothing but a cheap imitation of the genuine thing. Although the company itself is not shy to admit that their products are OEM by design, including the Spider Wheel Series, they are anything but “low-grade” or “of poor quality”.
Thus, leads to another major feature of the product—safety.
Safe to Use with UL2272 certification
Basically an American company with collaborative teams from both the US and China, CHO Sports adheres to the highest standards in the business possible. By adhering to the UL2272 certification, the CHO Sports e-Bike is guaranteed safe in that its hardware components do not overheat which results in a hazardous fire.
There are mechanisms in place in the product’s system itself—such as overcharge protection and temperature monitoring—which uphold the safety of its use by consumers.
If you are a conscious consumer who is aware of the usual defects which come with the product, you can rest easy knowing that the product you paid for is not a concern for harm with its constant use.
However, safety is just one common concern for a potentially inflammable product such as the hoverboard. Whether or not it can deliver to its performance promises, too, is another pressing issue for this kind of innovative product.
But, does it deliver?
At around 8 to 10 mph, riding on a hoverboard like the Spider Wheels is not necessarily the swiftest option about traveling. But it is definitely a comfortable idea which stems on the fact that riding on it requires literally little to no body movements, unlike boarding a skateboard, a scooter, or riding on a bicycle.
Although the machine’s mileage of 12 miles when fully charged is a decent length for traveled distance, it is worth noting that it is nuanced by two critical factors, namely the user’s body weight and the terrain being treaded.
Meaning, the distance you could cover with this product is directly proportionate to your weight and the quality of the path you are crossing.
For those who travel far distances, the CHO Spider Wheels Hoverboard’s battery life may feel insufficient and thus something that can be improved upon. Yet, while seemingly short in capacity—at least, based on the perspective of a wanderer—the battery in this hoverboard is not necessarily cheaply-made.
This harkens back to the idea that the CHO® is compliant with the best standards about hoverboard-making.
What about the design?
CHO did not necessarily have to reinvent the wheel when it made the Spider Wheels Hoverboard. Featuring all the looks that are visibly reminiscent of the first-ever hoverboard, the Spider Wheels Hoverboard follows the traditional design but with the sole exception that it adds a “spider-like” motif on the machine for added flair.
You may be hard-pressed to think that CHO is specifically catering to Marvel’s Spider-Man fans out there. But while seemingly aesthetic only by design, the “spider” theme—which bears little to no reference to the popular comic book hero—also serves a special function of providing better grip on the soles of every user.
Some consumers may be biased to think that a “toy” such as the Spider Wheels Hoverboard is a tool only used under broad daylight. But that is a common misconception, particularly for a hoverboard which is laden with sufficient LED lighting as the Spider Wheels Hoverboard. This means that even come night time, you could still be able to use the hoverboard, so long as it has enough juice to glide you to certain distances.
