Santa brought a hot pink one for my 10 yr old daughter & my 6 yr old son loved it so much that we got him this red one for his birthday. It's like a matte red. We are very pleased with our purchase. It goes fast, but not so fast it's dangerous. When it starts going too fast it will give a loud warning beep. If you try to keep going too fast past the beep, it will automatically slow down by itself. It will also give warning beeps to indicate that the battery is getting low. Be sure to follow the directions for calibrating before first use though. It rides really wonky if you don't. My kids have ridden it on the tile floor, outside on the paved road, through the grass, etc. It rides for hours at a time. We usually just plug it in over night, b/c it will take a few hours to charge fully once the battery is drained. I weigh 120 & it rides fine with me on it. But my husband weighs about 215-220 & it lags a bit with him on it. And fair warning to all riders: do NOT jump off! Step down from it! Lol. Other than that we've had absolutely no problems with it!
