IO Hawk Self-Balancing Scooter Review

IO Hawk hoverboard review smart self balancing electric scooter

UPDATE: Amazon no longer carries hoverboards in their online store. However, the Streetsaw and Skque hoverboards can still be found online.

 

Pros

This self balancing scooter has a range of up to 12 miles on a single charge, charge time is 3 hours - quick compared to a lot of hover boards on the market. This is made possible by a 36 volt 4.4 AH lithium ion battery that it comes equipped with. A tilt feature allows the IO Hawk to tackle some small inclines, and with treaded tires it can maneuver over cracks of up to .5 inches. It also comes with a cool remote that allows you to lock/unlock the board, turn on beginner mode, calibrate the hoverboard and turn it off. The lock/unlock feature and beginner mode will come in handy when you are first learning how to use the IO Hawk.

 

Cons

The IO Hawk has a top speed of 6.2 mph, about the same as the Wonfast hoverboard. While there are faster self balancing scooters, such as the ERover (up to 10mph), 6.2 mph is enough speed for most users. The price point is pretty high, with many features in common with the ERover, you should consider their scooter before purchasing an IO Hawk. Similar to the ERover, its 7-inch wheels  make the IO Hawk difficult to ride on rough terrains. It also doesn't perform well in wet weather conditions.
