Hy-Pro International, the sporting goods business behind Zinc, a leading brand of scooters, hoverboards and skateboards, has appointed Fizz Communications Ltd for an autumn PR programme to raise awareness of its new range of electric hoverboards and scooters. Zinc is one of the approved UK companies to sell hoverboards and one of the UK’s most trusted wheeled sports brands.
Putting amazing adventure into your personal mobility, the Smart X hoverboard for ages 14+ will make any trip exciting. Reaching speeds of 7.5mph and taking you 15km with one charge, you can cruise along with confidence. The anti-slip foot platforms and balance indicator help keep you cool and steady.
Suitable for ages 8+, the Smart Astrum scooter is slim-line, innovative and stylish, with a new longer lasting lightweight 24V 5Ah lithium battery to enhance the thrills. The Astrum can reach speeds of up to 15mph and offers 90 minutes run time.
Suitable for ages 8+, kids can experience the thrill of an electric scooter with Volt. Leading the charge for greener energy, the Volt 120 LI includes a quick charging, longer life lithium battery; while the five lightweight models in the Volt XT range cater for all budgets, featuring thumb trigger twist ‘n’ go acceleration and up to 60 minutes run time.
