On May 19, 2022, DGL Group recalled about 93,000 units of Hover-1 Superfly Hoverboards. The recall occurred as it was found that a software malfunction in the electrical system can continue to provide assistance to the motor, causing continued momentum when the rider is not controlling the hoverboard. This, in turn, can cause a fall and injury.
The recalled units involve the model year 2020 Hover-1 Superfly Hoverboards model H1-SPFY. These units were black in color and had blue LED lights on the deck near the foot pads. The units have the phrase Hover-1 written on the front of the hoverboard. Customers can identify the affected hoverboards by a warning label that can be found next to the serial number. Only units with serial numbers beginning with SPFY-BLK-GO-2008, SPFY-BLK-GO-2009, and SPFY-BLK-GO-2010 were involved in the recall.
DGL Group has advised consumers to immediately stop using the recalled hoverboards and contact them for instructions on how to ship the affected units to an authorized repair shop free of charge.
