GEORGETOWN, S.C., May 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While hoverboards flooded the consumer marketplace in 2015, many riders found balance and stability to be challenging. Dr. Jason Rosenberg, a respected neurologist, and Rob Honeycutt, an innovative manufacturer of industrial safety solutions, have teamed up to help solve those challenges. Enter HoverBars – a made-in-the-U.S.A. accessory compatible with most models of hoverboards.
HoverBars easily attach to hoverboards in less than two minutes and are adjustable so riders of all ages benefit from increased stability and control. Riders can maneuver the hoverboard by the traditional method of foot movements or by simply moving the twin HoverBars, a more natural motion for most people. People of all ages can use HoverBars like they would bicycle training wheels: They immediately allow users to experience the joy of riding, but unlike bicycle training wheels, users can leave HoverBars attached to increase the fun and versatility of a standard hoverboard.
"As a parent and neurologist, I understand that hoverboard falls have the potential to inflict devastating injuries, and recognized a need to make a hoverboard safer to ride," said Dr. Jason Rosenberg, co-president of HoverBars. "As the adage goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
Dr. Rosenberg and Rob Honeycutt will raise funding for HoverBars exclusively via Kickstarter beginning May 13.
"Kickstarter will allow us to see how HoverBars are received by consumers and get direct feedback from backers," said Rob Honeycutt, co-president of HoverBars. "We're excited to see how this fun, creative solution to riding a hoverboard resonates with the public. It's the perfect time of year to invest in HoverBars and get out there and start having fun in a safer way."
HoverBars are a hoverboard accessory made in the U.S.A. The company is located in Georgetown, S.C. and was founded by Dr. Jason Rosenberg, a respected neurologist and Rob Honeycutt, an innovative manufacturer of industrial safety equipment.
