For children in the 80s, the movie Back to the Future II was a game changer. Not only did it introduce the world to self-tying shoelaces, but it gave people a glimpse of what 2015 might look like. The one thing that stuck with people, shoelaces aside, were the amazing hover boards used in the movie. Not only were children thrilled at the idea of having their very own ways of flying around, but they figured they wouldn’t have to wait too long. After all, 2015 was just around the corner.
Unfortunately, 2015 came and went and no flying hover boards were invented. There were, however, hover boards. Unless they’ve been living under a rock, most people are aware of the new hover board craze that has taken over the world in the last year. While they don’t fly like the original hover board did, they did allow people to glide around their houses, offices, and through the streets on narrow, sleek, and modern looking devices.
The hype, however, didn’t last. Not only did the craze die down relatively quickly, but news got out that the hover boards that had been released were bursting into flame. A reported 12 incidents of hover boards starting to burn were reported in the United States. Not only have several stores stopped selling these hover boards, but many airplanes and cargo services won’t even allow them to be brought aboard.
While this is bad news for several people who thought they were finally going to live their dreams of having a hover board, there is a little bit of good news. Not only is there a new type of hover board available, but unlike the other hastily designed and manufactured options, this one has gone through rigorous testing and has been found to be completely safe.
The Kiwano Electric Scooter is the new generation of hover board, offering the looks and convenience, plus the versatility and safety that so many other products could not offer.
What is The Kiwano Electric Scooter?
The Kiwano Electric Scooter is the world’s first smart scooter, the only one that can be completely connected to a smartphone. Not only does this allow several amazing options to be accessed for and by the scooter, but it also makes monitoring and connecting to Kiwano much easier.
Nowhere else in the world is there a smart, Bluetooth connected scooter. However, that’s not all Kiwano has going for it. It’s also made to be much sturdier than other similar boards. One look at its tires tells customers that they’re getting something made with quality materials and that this scooter option can take them anywhere. Kiwano moves over all sorts of terrain easily and without throwing its users.
Most importantly, Kiwano is safe. The makers of the Kiwano Electric Scooter collaborated with the leaders in the industry, specifically the battery industry, to make sure every component is safe, no matter what users do with it. Having this reassurance is the cherry on top for those ready to get back on a scooter.
The Kiwano Electric Scooter is being released in mid-March. For now, there’s a website about the scooter and a sign-up form available for those who would like to receive information, discounts, and updates about the scooter. Already people are getting excited about getting their hands on the Kiwano Electric Scooter.
Benefits of Kiwano
There are so many amazing things about the Kiwano it’s hard to pinpoint just one. However, the Kiwano website points out a few of the best characteristics about this electric scooter, getting future buyers extremely excited about its release.
For one, unlike the hover boards that look like they’re made to be used on carpet or paved roads, the Kiwano has tires that were designed to go anywhere its users want to go. The tires are shock absorbent and can go on absolutely any terrain, from sand and grass to gravel. And, the alloy rims on the Kiwano give it that beautifully sleek look that so many people love.
On the subject of the body of the Kiwano, it is made with an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, making it both extremely sturdy and also very light. Because of its materials, the Kiwano is also certified IP56 water resistant, making it the perfect ride for any weather.
Kiwano is also the only smart scooter available in the entire world. It connects directly to users phones, allowing them access to several perks and bits of information. Not only does this connection allow users to locate and track their routes, but because Kiwano has speakers wired into its body, users can play their favorite music wirelessly.
The Kiwano Electric Scooter also has several different riding modes, offering different users with different experience levels the option to make riding the scooter more or less challenging. The different levels affect how the scooter moves. While most users who like to use their scooters out in the world will use more advanced levels of riding modes, for those with children, having this option it a huge relief. Because Kiwano has instant stability, dual independent gyros, riders will immediately notice how smooth it rides.
The Kiwano comes in a sleek, beautifully designed travel smart bag. The scooter fits in perfectly and can be swung over the shoulders or worn as a messenger bag when users can’t use the scooter or need to put it away for a while. Not only does this make storing and traveling with the hover board much easier, it also looks really good.
Finally, the most important part of the Kiwano is that it puts safety first. This important factor is applied in both the manufacturing of the product as well as for the safety of its users. The makers behind the Kiwano Electric Scooter partnered with Samsung and had this hugely successful company create the batteries and other electronic components for the scooter. Kiwano did this to ensure that its product was of the highest quality and that its users would be completely safe.
The battery pack in the Kiwano is completely detachable and can be charged without being connected to the scooter. In addition to these important safety features, Kiwano has headlights and brake lights integrated into its body. These powerful LED lights make sure that Kiwano riders are seen where ever they are, no matter how dark it is outside.
