A big concern with hoverboards in general is safety. Because they are controlled with both sides individually it is all to easy to lose your balance and fall. Just ask YouTube. The GlideKart hoverboard seat is controlled with hand controls that are spring loaded and revert back to neutral when released. This means riding a hoverboard with a GlideKart is much safer then standing on it, as you always have to be aware of your balance as you are riding. Additionally the GlideKart makes your hoverboard safer because you are much closer to the ground, and it’s almost impossible to fall off of.
