Oxboard’s Best E-Scooter: 2 Models Available With Free Shipping Anywhere in Ireland

Finding the best E-Scooter can be a challenge. There are so many brands out there, and they are fast becoming a big thing, with kids and adults alike taking to the streets and parks and using it as a mode of transport. The Oxboard models are built for people aged 14 and up.  Oxboard is a top-rated Dutch company specialising in electronic transporters such as hoverboards.  They are regarded for quality builds and durability. Oxboard offers two e-scooter models:

1. The Oxboard E-Kick

The E-Kick is light, tough and durable and comes in at the best price of €259. it has a good battery built to last 10-12km on a single charge and can carry up to 120 kilos. It’s highly portable, with a much smaller “kick-start” engine designed to kick in when you give it a push to get going. The great thing about the E-Kick is that it’s so lightweight, and the battery and motor so neat, that if it runs out of juice, it works just as seamlessly as a regular scooter. So unlike a lot of models out there, even if your battery dies while you’re out and about, you won’t suddenly feel like you’re scooting along on an old 1954 Whirlpool Washing Machine.

2. The PRO2: Oxboard’s Best E-Scooterbest e-scooter

The PRO2 is Oxboard’s newest model and comes in black and white. It comes in at €599 and here is what you get for the price. The PRO2 is all about the motor. It has a powerful 350-watt engine which can carry up to 130kgs with a top speed of 25km/h. With a 7.5Ah battery, this will let you drive up to 30 kilometres before you need to charge up. Charging takes about 3.5 hours. 

Naturally, with such a powerful motor, you need to be able to slow yourself down, and the PRO2 comes with two independent disc brakes, front and back. One notable difference between the PRO2 and many competitors is the more extended deck to accommodate the larger battery while giving you more space. The PRO2 has lights on the front and back, including a brake light. The PRO2 is also portable with a foldable handle and weights 15kg. It comes with a two-year warranty and uses 8.5inch tyres.

All Oxboard E-Scooters come with free shipping anywhere in Ireland. For inquiries, or to find out which is the best e-scooter for you, call us today on 021 4965 132

Oxboard Hoverboards

We’re proud to introduce Oxboard hoverboards, cutting edge hoverboard technology from Holland. These are well built to make travelling and performing stunts safer, smoother and more enjoyable. And unlike most boards, they come with a two-year warranty. 

Oxboard Hoverboards: The PRO

The Oxboard PRO hoverboard is built with quality and fun in mind. Controlled using your feet to drive the hoverboard back and forth, it is also possible to rotate it a full 360 degrees. The PRO uses the TAO motherboard to ensure that the gyroscopic balancing motors are working well at all times to increase safety and improve the sense of smoothness and fun. The PRO is also equipped with a Samsung 4.4 Ah battery. This is cutting edge battery technology which allows you to enjoy long-distance travel of up to 15-20 kilometres on a single charge. Thanks to this charging technology, charging only takes about 3 hours. 

The Remote

One of the biggest issues with hoverboards is that they’re bulky, so you can’t carry them around with you everywhere. This means that when you call into a shop you might have to leave the board outside where it can be stolen. The Oxboard PRO also comes with a remote, which can lock the board making it unusable by anyone else.

The remote also increases the usability of the board. By default, the board is in Beginner mode where it is smoother and safer and a little slower. But once you’re comfortable with using the board, with a touch of the remote you can seamlessly switch from beginner mode to expert mode, where you can now move and turn faster and do more tricks. 

The Oxboard had 6.5-inch wheels which are made of a strong rubber to reduce wear and tear. They’re also able to handle cracked and bumpy pavement very well compared to lower quality competitors. The build of the board includes strong rubber bumpers for extra protection from scuffs and impacts during use. In addition to the board and remote, the PRO comes with a 220V charger, instruction booklet. Remember to always wear protective clothing with these — especially when you’re starting off!

Hovershoes: The Oxboard Blades

Hovershoes are a lot of fun. The Oxboard blades are very similar to hoverboards. They’re a tonne of fun for the whole family. The main difference is that each foot can operate independently. This makes it more difficult to pick up but it also makes it a lot more fun. Still, if you’ve ever tried a hoverboard it’ll feel familiar. With Oxboard blades, you also have the option to link them together and use it like a hoverboard.

Oxboard ‘Blades’ Hovershoes

You can compare Oxboard blades to rollerblades, but where you never have to lift your foot off the ground. There’s a much steeper learning curve with blades compared with hoverboards, but it’s something that kids will pick up really quickly.

Oxboard’s blades and hoverboards are well built and highly durable. They’re also water-resistant which means they’re safe to use on wet days.  Blades (AKA hover shoes) are easier to store in your backpack which can be useful if you plan to use them for commuting. 

In terms of speed, these hovershoes can reach up to 8kmph. They have a maximum range of 10km per charge, and they can be charged within a few hours. They have a built-in readout so you can tell when you need to recharge them (and also avoid going out the door with blades that haven’t been fully charged and end up cutting out on you after a few metres!). 

In terms of weight, they can handle larger people up to 128kgs or 20 stone. It’s best to familiarise yourself with this on a carpeted space while you get used to it, and protective gear should always be worn for safety. 

Oxboard Blades VS Hoverboards

The main disadvantage of hovershoes over hoverboards are the maximum distance and speed. While the Oxboard PRO can travel 15-20km on a single charge and reach speeds of up to 15km per hour, the hovershoes have a maximum speed of 8km per hour and a maximum distance of 10km per charge. This is not a problem if you plan to use the hovershoes purely for tricks and playing around near home, but it might be a disadvantage for those seeking to use this as a means of transport.
