You’re convinced that walking is not for you? You might want to check out our roundup on the latest hoverboard pricing. The quality of cheap hoverboards can be dangerous and shockingly low. We’ve done extensive research to compile a list of hoverboard sales prices on reliable models.
Hoverboards, or self-balancing motorized scooters as they are known, are great fun. Provided you stick with reputable names (and in the US, look for UL safety certification) you can pick up a good quality hoverboard/self-balancing scooter for a pretty good price without having to brave the darker corners of eBay imports and risking all those pesky fires.
The best hoverboard prices
Megawheels Self Balance Scooter Hoverboard
For beginners, a solid hoverboard
2 x 250W motors
Distances up to 10 km
The Megawheels is a good starter board for kids if you don’t mind the bright colours. The Megawheels has two 250w motors that can reach speeds of up to 7.5mph and should travel for 10km on flat surfaces. You can make yourself unpopular among passers-by by playing music through the Bluetooth speaker. There are three colour options for the integrated LED lights. Although boards with similar specifications can be purchased for a fraction of the price, they are not as safe.
Colorway All Terrain hoverboard
This is the best off-road action!
Capability to drive off-road
2 x 250W motors
Strong enough to support adults
Some people don’t have a smooth surface that allows them to glide around. The Colorway is the right board for you if your terrain is more rugged than the more powerful and off-road capable Colorway. This is not a military-spec board. It can handle gradients up to 15 degrees. You won’t be able to reach its top speed of 15 mph on an incline or on rough ground. However, its larger wheels and more powerful motors make this a great option for riders who want to ride on tarmac as well as grass and gravel. It can also be used by adults and teens up to 100Kg.
Razor Hovertrax 2.0 Hoverboard Self Balancing Smart Scooter
Strong and durable – ready to take on any impact
60-minute ride time
2 x 350W motors
Razor’s second-generation hoverboard, the Hovertrax 2.0, is now available. The company was also the first to be granted the UL safety certification. It’s a sturdy looking board made from tough materials. The steel frame is coated with shatter-resistant polymer and has bumpers and light bars. It can be swapped out for a spare battery to keep the board moving. The board will provide silent cruising speeds of up to 9mph for nearly 60 minutes. The ride is smooth and pleasant, which is a marked improvement on the less expensive models. Although it isn’t ideal for off-roading, this vehicle is a great choice for urban travel.
Let me take you to the future!
Great for children
Distances up to 18km
Ah, Segways. Segways. Remember that claim that we would design cities around them. Although that didn’t happen, Segway did start a personal transportation revolution with its famous, large and expensive self-balancing scooters. Although it is smaller and more affordable, the MiniLITE retains the magic ride. It also has a reduced handlebar to make it a knee control. It is suitable for children 6 and over, can run at 11 mph, travels 18 km on one charge, and is a well-designed and well-built Segway product. However, taller adults might prefer a larger option.
For the big kids who have deep pockets
Some territories are difficult to find stock
Let’s get started with the numbers. 800W motors power the miniPRO, allowing it to reach speeds of 10mph and give it a range that is around 14 miles under good conditions. The miniPRO’s knee control bar makes it easier to control than other hoverboards. It also has 10.5-inch tyres that are able to withstand most bumps and lumps. MiniPRO can climb up to 15 degree inclines and has taillights and headlights that stop people from crashing into it. Segway is very cautious about hoverboards. It insists that it is a Personal Transporter. It’s an extremely well-engineered and designed product, no matter what you call it. Although it’s not inexpensive, you get a lot for your money.
