What a step in the right direction for Swagtron, formerly known as Swagway.

The new Swagtron T1 model is compact, easy to ride, lightweight and fun for all ages and it makes an excellent choice for parents looking to buy a hoverboard for child. A T1 can cruise at over 8mph, covering over 12 miles on a fully charged battery before needing an additional charge. Charging itself is easy and safe with the included battery pack, taking only an hour to reach its full capacity with the built-in high LG lithium battery. When driving you’ll be able to achieve the most speed on even, smooth surfaces, but the Swagtron can climb inclines of up to 30°. It even have a learning mode that helps you pick up the basics before you take the hoverboard on at its top speeds. Most riders can pick up the basics in under a half-hour. Its self-balancing technology makes it very easy to rest comfortably on while riding and you won’t have to feel tens. And with a modified design, this is a hoverboard that will let you ride in style.

Don’t miss out on the T1, it’s a far more superior board than the Swagtron T3 even though one feels it should’ve been the other way around.
