INTRODUCING THE HYPERVOLT GO
The Hypervolt GO is the most affordable percussion massage device from HYPERICE, with all of the features you need and nothing you don't.
With surprising power and whisper-quiet operation, the Hypervolt GO was designed with simplicity in mind. Ultra-lightweight at 1.5 pounds and 30% smaller than the Hypervolt, the GO is super-easy to use and ready to provide relief wherever you roam. The device provides percussion therapy which concentrates targeted pulses of pressure into the muscle/tissue of the body, with benefits such as accelerating warmup and recovery, improving range of motion and flexibility and reducing muscle soreness and stiffness. It enhances muscle performance, so you can be the best at what you do. Percussive stimulation provides comprehensive relief by reaching both superficial and deep muscle fibres. Three speed settings and two interchangeable head attachments allow you to adjust the massage to your preference, whilst QuietGlide technology keeps the noise to a minimum.

Our Sportsshoes Trail Running Ambassador, Ben Mounsey, reviewed the HYPERICE Hypervolt Go after using it over the last few months.
The Hypervolt Go is a perfect device for someone constantly on the move and can be used at home or on the road.
The thing I love the most is its versatility. It’s very lightweight and compact, which makes it easy for me to hold and use and without having to rely on someone else to treat the hard-to-reach areas of my body. I usually use mine at my desk during the day, as a warm up before I go training, or as a post-exercise recovery aid during the evening. I really like the ergonomic gun-shaped design and the shape of the flat head attachment, which I use for most treatments.
The Hypervolt Go is the perfect travel companion in terms of size and weight, but also because it comes complete with four additional plug adapters and is TSA approved for carry-on, so you can take it anywhere. My only criticism is that is doesn’t come with a carry case for storage and travel. The HYPERICE Volt case can be purchased separately here.
There are two detachable massage heads that can be easily changed, both uniquely different in size and shape, giving you an option when treating different parts of your body. The Hypervolt Go also has 3 different speed settings, so it’s very easy to use and control. The power button starts the device, but increases speed on every press, before switching off and then restarting once the full cycle of options is complete. For a small and compact device, The Hypervolt Go really does pack a punch. Weighing just 1.5lbs it produces up to 3200 percussions per minute and has 25lbs of no-stall force. It’s also relatively quiet to use and compared with the Theragun Mini, for example, it provides more power for similar price.
Charging is simple and the device holds charge for quite a number of days, even after constant and daily use. This also means you don’t have to always carry the charger with you when travelling, as there is ample battery power for extended periods of use (150 mins of charge).
With powerful technology at an affordable price, the Hypervolt Go is a great choice for someone looking to purchase their first percussive therapy device or simply just wants a lightweight, powerful and versatile handheld model.
