Leray Self Balancing Scooter Review

leray hoverboard self balancing scooter review

                        UPDATE: Amazon no longer carries hoverboards. However, Skque and StreetSaw hoverboards can still be found online.

Pros

Leray is a brand name that can be trusted by consumers, and their self balancing scooters use a certified safe battery pack.  The quality of the battery pack is important given the fire related issues faced by other boards on the market. A range of 10 miles on a single charge gives you plenty of riding time. Charge time varies between 1 and 2.5 hours, with an hour charge giving you enough juice for miles of riding. The top speed of the Leray hoverboard is around 10 mph, this is fast enough for even the most daring hoverboard riders. A 15 degree tilt angle allows this board to climb small hills.

 

Cons

The paint scratches relatively easily, fortunately scratches won't affect the performance of the board. As with other 7-inch wheel hoverboards, the Leray is going to have a difficult time navigating rough terrain. For those of you looking for an outdoor board, check out the Streetsaw self balancing scooter. They produce a model with 10 inch wheels that can handle tough terrains. You also won't be able to use this self balancing scooter in the rain or snow as it isn't water resistant. If you want to take this board out in the rain, we recommend using a carrying case.

 

My Experience

I bought my Leray hoverboard from Amazon, the first thing I noticed was the quick charge time on this hoverboard, which is a huge plus for me. I plug it in for just over an hour and get a few hours of riding time on it. This is a really cool looking hoverboard. Call me shallow, but the an attractive design is one of the biggest features I look for in a hoverboard, right up there with quality and safety. The Leray has all of these things, which is why it's one of my favorite boards.  I have crashed a few times; 10mph is a very fast speed and it can be hard to control the board while moving this fast. The paint on the board has been scratched up in a few places, but this problem isn't unique to the paint used on the Leray. Overall the quality is great, and riding this board is very smooth compared to a lot of other hoverboards.

  1. Hi,

    Thinking about buying a Leray hoverboard for my son… Is 10mph a safe top speed for a kid to be riding a hoverboard? I like all of the features for the Leray, but my number one concern is safety.

    1. Allie,

      I understand your concern. 10mph is a very fast speed, if you or your son plans on using a Leray hoverboard I would recommend using appropriate safety gear and following all road safety rules in your area. There are other hoverboards with lower top speeds, such as the Razor Hovertrax.

  2. I got one of these scooters on new year from my father. I think he takes me as a a very cool and fun person which i am not and i’m not comfortable at all with these things , but still i’m learning and trying to use it, may be someday it’s helpful or may be i start finding some fun factor in these.
