Skque has released two lines of UL 2272 certified hoverboards, the X1 and the I1. Each line offers a couple of unique features, which we'll take a look at before we dive into the full review.
- Standard 6.5" wheels
- Option to upgrade to bluetooth speaker
- Option to upgrade to LED light bumpers + bluetooth speaker
- Models with 6.5" wheels, 8 inch wheels and 10" wheels
- Bluetooth included on all models
- Sleek design
The new I1 and X1 models are UL 2272 certified. This is the most important factor that we take into consideration when reviewing a hoverboard. It's also a USA brand - that's usually a plus when it comes to customer service and warranty.
Another thing that we love about the I1 and X1 are the variety of options. A total of 6 different hoverboards are available between the two lines, with variations in wheel size, bluetooth and LED lights. More choices are always a good thing, so we applaud Skque for giving us plenty of them.
Aside from the improved safety of the battery and array of features, the Skque X1 and I1 also offer an improved turning radius. This means that you can operate your self balancing scooter in very tight spaces. The charge time is relatively quick, 1-2 hours for a full charge. The I1 is powered by two 250 watt motors while the X1 contains two 350 watt motors. Both lines have a stronger shell than previous models for increased durability.
The X1 and I1 are relatively new lines of hoverboards, making it difficult to find any flaws. At this point in time the only real downside is the lack of features to distinguish the X1 and I1 from older Skque models. The critical flaws in early models - namely lack of UL 2272 certification - were addressed. But as far as newly innovative features, there aren't a ton to get excited about. We will certainly update this post if we find anything to be concerned about.
