Razor Hovertrax 2.0 Review

Pros

The Hovertrax 2.0 is one of the top self balancing scooters on the market, it's produced by Razor, a well known and trusted company. You can find the Hovertrax 2.0 on Amazon and the Razor website. Recently there have been many issues with the reliability and safety of the batteries used in Chinese-made hoverboards, but Razor has shown that they can produce a quality, durable self balancing scooter.

The Hovertrax 2.0 is UL 2272 certified, meaning that the battery has passed incredibly strict safety standards. This doesn't surprise us, as they have been in the scooter market for a long time now. With a range of 12 miles (60 minutes of continuous riding), you can enjoy your Hovertrax for longer periods of time than most hoverboard scooters. The charge time is about 2 hours, which is comparable to other hoverboards we've reviewed.

A new technology called EverBalance is used to make the Hovertrax 2.0 extremely smooth and easier than ever to balance on. A 15 degree tilt allows this hoverboard to climb small hills. It also comes equipped with an LED indicator to display battery power and balance level.

Cons

The Hovertrax 2.0 has a top speed of about 8mph. This is slower than the EPIKGO, but we have found that most people do not actually enjoy a cruising speed faster than 8mph. It is also a bit more expensive than other hoverboards such as the Swagtron T1, but you are getting a premium brand name with quality features. The board won't handle off road environments as well as the Halo Rover hoverboard, but it does well on most surfaces.

My Experience

I ordered the Hovertrax from Amazon and waited just over a week for it to arrive. When I pulled it out of the box the first thing I noticed is that the 2.0 has directional LED lights like the Powerboard, a feature that the original Hovertrax didn't have. It also has LED indicators that show battery power and balance level, which do come in handy. Another thing that I liked about the Hovertrax 2.0 was the new design. The design for the original Hovertrax felt cheap and unoriginal, but the 2.0 has got it's own unique style. The fender bumpers are a nice addition as well, it helps protect the board from scratches and dings. I have not had many issues while riding the board over the course of the last few weeks, and the battery life has been solid.

  1. Good Day,
    My name is Paul Gary and i am looking to order Rollmo 8 inch Red from your company. Kindly email me back with the types you have and their respective prices. I would also like to know what type of credit cards you accept.

    Thank You.

  2. Hello I have bought a white hover track 2.0 and I’ve had a red one I returned because the sensitivity was off , I got my new red one and again it feels much different than my white one is this normal or are the white ones better?

    1. By the way the red ones I’ve mentioned are also the hovertrax 2.0 it seems there is something different in the riding sensitivity while turning the red one does a complete turn when you bearly start a turn and feels like your feel aren’t centered evenly while going forward , my white hovertrax 2.0 feels more respondent with my movement while the red one just does what it wants to like, does complete sharp turns please help? I’m thinking of returning this new red hovertrax 2.0 again

  3. They are both in same mode I think there’s something wrong with the red ones since I’ve already went thru two with same problem

    1. Ok. I’ve heard nothing to support the notion that any technical issues are color-related, but it is possible. If you’re not satisfied with the product I’d recommend returning it, Razor has a solid return policy
