NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jetson, the renowned personal, electric transportation innovator, is pleased to announce the release of its newest product, the UL-Certified V6 hoverboard, exclusively on Target.com. The V6 is one of the first of a new generation of hoverboards that conform to UL Standard 2272--a group of "hoverboard-specific" testing and safety protocols developed by the UL.
Engineered & designed from the ground up, Jetson's versatile and durable V6 offers an exhilarating experience for riders of all ages and gender. More than using state of the art engineering and top quality materials, the V6 also integrates the latest in technology featuring Active Balance Technology™. The Jetson V6 makes it easy for any rider to quickly and safely transform from a beginner, to an intermediate, to an advanced "hoverboarder" in no time.
Accompanying the launch of the V6 hoverboard is Ride Ready - the brand's new iOS & Android compatible mobile application that's provided as a free download with any V6 purchase. The app is packed with innovative features that will enhance the V6 user experience by enabling them to compete with friends, track their ride, share data via social media, locate a lost board and even control lights and stream music to the units' built- in Bluetooth audio system. Most importantly, the Ride Ready app reinforces the brands commitment to safety, as V6 users control the riding mode best suited for their level of experience including the maximum speed, driving force and steering sensitivity.
DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED TO ENSURE A SMARTER AND SAFER RIDE
Jetson's total "rethink" of the V6 is in response to safety and design integrity concerns that affected the market about a year ago. Rather than look for "legacy-based" solutions, Jetson's focus was on ensuring that the new V6 would fully comply with Standard 2272 UL certification. Doing so ensures that the V6's electrical drive train system, as well as its battery and charger, have all undergone rigorous testing to meet or exceed the guidelines established by the internationally recognized leader in safety testing.
Additionally, Jetson's commitment to safety is on display with its unique flame-retardant shell, specially treated, anti-slip grip pads, enhanced water-resistance, intelligent auto shut-off, and three customizable ride modes that enable beginner, intermediate and advanced "boarders" to have the safest, smartest and most enjoyable experience possible.
"No matter if your interest in electric mobility is based on the environment, economics or just plain convenience, the fact remains that personal, electric travel is here to stay," said Josh Sultan, Jetson's founder and CEO. "Our goal with Jetson is to be the go-to brand for personal electric mobility, regardless if you choose a Jetson cycle, scooter or our new cutting edge, UL certified, V6 hoverboard. The one thing you'll always get with Jetson is a brand that's committed to getting you there. We promise that we'll move you."
The Jetson V6 can now be found exclusively on Target.com and can be found in-store starting on September 18, 2016. The hoverboard retails for $399.99.
