The e4fun Hovershoes are the latest trend

The e4fun Hovershoes are the latest trend in sports equipment for children and teenagers.

Hovershoes are the perfect combination of roller skates, skateboard and hover board and offer a new exciting and unique riding experience! The two single hovershoes enable you to pull off special moves and tricks. You can dance, skate and glide with them, and have endless amounts of hovering fun with them!

Our test subject Raphaela (age 10) was able to ride freely on the Hovershoes after just 2 minutes and after another 5 minutes was able to perform curves and turns. If the shoes are tilted forward, they both move forward, and if they are tilted back slightly then both shoes move backwards. Of course you can also perform a curve by shifting your weight, but to begin with the difficult trick is keeping your legs as parallel and close to each other as possible and not letting yourself get drawn into doing the splits involuntarily. But none of that should be a problem for children and teenagers - our test subject was able to perform perfect curves and manoeuvres in less than 15 minutes. Our 10-year-old found it very funny to ride along with just one shoe, i.e. on one leg, or to gambol around with her knees in the shoes instead.
There is no doubt that the Hovershoes are an ideal sports and leisure device that can help improve the balance of children and adolescents. This balance work is a key requirement in many popular sports (surfing, kiting, skateboarding, surfing) today and the Hovershoes are therefore an ideal training partner.

The Hovershoes are small and light (3 kg each) and can be carried in your backpack at any time. Each Hovershoe has its own motor with batteries that power the independent footplates. The Hovershoes are delivered with a charger, which fully charges the shoes in under 3 hours. And because the shoes can travel up to 10 km with a single charge and reach speeds of up to 15 km/h, you'll have endless fun and want to glide on and on. In addition, LEDs are attached to the sides of the shoes, flashing in different colours to give you a casual look.
If the capacity of the battery diminishes, it is very easy to replace by yourself. From summer 2019 we will also offer replacement batteries on this page.
Turning, gliding, doing stunts!

e4fun Balance Shoes allow you to move freely, turn around and perform fantastic indoor and outdoor stunts.

Thanks to their independent manoeuvrability, these drift shoes offer you complete freedom of movement and stability when riding.

Technical Data

United Kingdom

E-scooters, hoverboards and hovershoes may be used on private land provided that the land owner grants permission. Since such powered transporters may only be used on private land, there are no laws governing maximum speed, minimum age, brakes, insurance plates, driver’s licences, helmets or indicators.

In the United Kingdom, it is currently illegal to use “powered transporters”, which includes e-scooters, segways, hoverboards, hovershoes, on any public road or space dedicated for use by pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.

For any vehicle to use public roads lawfully, it must comply with technical standards, be insured, taxed, licensed and registered and the driver must be tested before being allowed on the road. Since e-scooters, hoverboards and hovershoes do not conform with any of these stipulations, it is illegal to drive them on the road.

Powered transporters are also prohibited from using pavements and pedestrian-only areas by section 72 of the Highway Act 1835, which states that it is illegal to ride any form of “carriage” (which applies to all motorised vehicles except mobility scooters and wheelchairs) on the pavement. The Road Traffic Act 1988 moreover prohibits the use of powered transporters on footpaths.

Cycle lanes are also out of bounds for powered transporters according to section 21 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, which states that only pedal cycles (with an exemption for mobility scooters) may use such spaces.

Austria

In Austria, hoverboards and hovershoes with an output of less than 600 watts and a maximum speed of 25 km/h are classified as small vehicles, which may principally be used away from main roads - i.e. on pavements, play streets and residential streets, and of course also on private land and playgrounds. It is vital, however, that nobody else is put in danger by using the devices. The speed must be adjusted accordingly. The following age restrictions apply: only children above the age of 12 may use hoverboards and hovershoes without adult supervision. Children aged ten and above may use them if they possess a valid bicycle licence.

Belgium

The speed of travel determines where you can use these machines: if you do not move faster than at a walking pace (6 km/h), you are considered a pedestrian and must therefore follow the rules applicable to pedestrians. You are therefore welcome on the sidewalk, when there is one.On the other hand, if you drive faster than walking, you will have to follow the rules applicable to cyclists and therefore use the cycle path at a maximum speed of 18 km / h.

Control and responsibility requested

On the insurance side, most companies have adapted, including micro-mobility vehicles in the mandatory family civil liability. As for cyclists, wearing a helmet and a brightly coloured chasuble is not mandatory, but strongly recommended. No permit is required either and since Hoverboards and Balance Shoes users are considered pedestrians, the electric equipment must not have any special equipment.
