Hy-Pro unveils new Zinc Smart Power Gliders

Published on: 24th May 2018

Zinc, the No. 1 scooter brand in the UK, has re-imagined the riding experience with an innovative new product.

Following the success of Zinc’s Street Gliders and Smart X hoverboard, Hy-Pro introduces Zinc Smart Power Gliders.

This original product features a sophisticated design that puts the power under the rider’s feet with two motorised platforms. The innovation takes advantage of sleek lithium technology and maintenance free, motorised wheels. Riders can glide at speeds up to 7mph and enjoy up to 10km of continuous ride time.

Having retained the titles of both No. 1 brand in the UK and number one manufacturer in the UK, Zinc leads the industry with its successful range of products that meet new market expectations such as value and innovation.

Simon Pickavance, Hy-Pro’s commercial director, commented: “Having firmly established ourselves in the lithium electric vehicle market with the success of the Smart range, the Power Gliders represents a meeting of old and new. As a hybrid of our first Zinc product, the Street Glider, adding the most cutting-edge technology from our recent achievement in the hoverboard market, we have been able to bring it bang up to date.”

Zinc is now accountable for over 20% of the Skates/Skateboards/Scooters category and the company says the marketplace shows a clear preference for wheeled products that are technologically advanced and offer brand new experiences. The brand continues to focus on remaining aspirational and its diverse portfolio offers products for every ability.

Simon continues: “The message is clear, every innovation from Zinc encourages young people to be active and spend more time outside. Our journey began with creating something a little different and the advances in technology have not held us back, but in fact only empowered us to go above and beyond market expectations. Zinc has no limitations, and we’re very proud of that.”
