Hover X Self Balancing Hoverboard Balance Scooter Review

Hover X Self Balancing Hoverboard Balance Scooter Review

                        ∗ UPDATE: Amazon no longer carries the Hover X. They do carry the Swagtron T1, the only UL2272 certified hoverboard.

Pros

Hover X is an American company that brings quality customer service and a premium 90 day warranty on their self balancing scooter. There are a lot of concerns about the quality of hover boards currently being mass produced in China, so the warranty and customer service are a huge plus for consumers. The Hover X is also one of the few self balancing scooters, along with the Hovertrax, currently carried by Amazon. The top speed is just under 10mph, which is right up there with the fastest hover boards on the market. A range of 10 miles on a single charge is also comparable to most other self balancing scooters. With two different riding modes, you can use the "learning mode" when you are starting out to get comfortable on this hoverboard, then switch to the skilled mode for a more robust riding experience when you are ready. A 15 degree tilt allows riders to climb small hills on the Hover X.

 

Cons

The Hover X encounters the same problems as other 7 inch wheel hoverboards, it is difficult to ride on rough terrains, and better suited to smooth surfaces. It also is not waterproof, so don't expect to take your Hover X board outside in the rain or snow. You also don't get a whole lot of extra features such as bluetooth capability or a remote control, but none of these features are necessary to enjoy a hoverboard. The plus side is that without such features you are able to purchase the Hover X at a lower price point.

  1. Hi, I wanted to get a hoverboard for my boyfriend for Christmas, but Amazon wasn’t selling a lot of the models. Is the Hover X safe to buy?

    1. Hi Katie,

      The Hover X is currently listed for sale on Amazon, all of the hoverboards that Amazon continues to list for sale have met stringent safety guidelines. So yes, it is safe to buy.
