Glide boards are commonly referred to as hoverboards, but that’s not exactly correct. They’re self-balancing electric scooters. The Glide can travel at a max speed of 12mph and can carry a weight of up to 265 pounds. The unit weighs 22 pounds, and it can run for 90-120 minutes on a charge. The S Glide has all the same features of the Glide but with the benefits of Bluetooth connectivity so you can play music while you glide. The X Glide is a heavy duty version which can carry a load of up to 330 pounds. It has larger wheels and base plus a dual 350-watt motor, a lithium-ion battery, and Bluetooth speakers, and LED lights. Prices range from $499 to $599. This offer is only available from their website and only for a limited time. Glide boards purchased elsewhere don’t trigger the donation.
