The back to the future era has finally arrived!!

Sky Walkers, the high tech hover boards, have just arrived in Australia and are already tipped to be the hottest Christmas gift for both young and old.

The compact device that allows users to effortlessly glide, maneuver and perform smooth tricks and turns, is set to get the Aussie market moving in a whole new way. The range, which now features the introduction of the 6.5” in addition to the 8”, comes in 9 stylish new colours and designs to suit all tastes. Furthermore Sky Walkers have launched a separate 4.5” collection for kids in purple, green and blue.

The units are easy and effortless to use, with the Sky Walker taking on average just 3 to 5 minutes to master. The Sky Walker is very intuitive, so once you relax and become accustomed to the feeling, you can expect to be proficient within 20-30 minutes.

In addition, Sky Walkers have invested the research, time and resources to ensure product functionality and reliability. The brand uses only the highest quality certified materials, which meet or exceed Australian standards.

Sky Walkers are already causing social media hype, with the boards already having been adopted by the likes of Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Kylie Jenner to name a few.
