HoverTech has changed the color of the HoverMatt SPU nylon. This change was made to help customers more easily identify the top and bottom surfaces of the matt and to reduce product loss from staff inadvertently discarding the device with linens. This will not affect the pull force reduction performance of the device. Our research has shown that customers overwhelmingly liked the change.
This is especially great since we will not be changing the price of the product. New inventory arrived in February but customers may not see it until the end of March as our current inventory is depleted. All SPU products will eventually be converted over including the Half-Matt, Split-Leg Matt and the HoverSling.
