Razor hoverboards are reliable, high-quality hoverboards for kids and adults, and they have very affordable price. Their most expensive hoverboard is around $300 and new hoverboards for kids are coming with more than affordable price of $179, concerning the high quality components and performance. Razor is a well knoen and reliable company that goes way back to 2000, and has become recognizable for its hoverboards, and a few years ago they started with a line of electric scooters, among which Razor E Prime III and Razor E Prime Air electric scooters stand out for their characteristics and quality.
Today I will present you the new Razor hoverboard for kids, which is part of a new and attractive line of Razor hoverboards for kids. It is a Razor Hovertrax Prizma and I could freely say that it is a kids’ version of their most successful hoverboard for adults, Razor Hovertrax 2.0, which we wrote about earlier. The new Razor hoverboards for kids are a real refreshment on the hoverboard market and they come with vivid colors, multicolor LED lights, powerful motors and speeds of up to 10 mph, which is a pretty impressive speed for any hoverboard.
Design and Main Features of Razor Hovertrax Prizma
When you look at the Razor Hovetrax Prizma hoverboard, it is immediately clear that the Razor didn’t get much involved in changing the design. It matches the classic Razor hoverboard design already present in its famous Hovetrax 1.5 and Hovertrax 2.0 models. In addition to the Razor Hovetrax Prizma, two other models in their line of kids’ hoverboards are Black Label Hovetrax and Hovertrax X-Ray. In principle, it is the same model of hoverboard with certain aesthetic differences.
Like I said, the Hovertrax Prizma has a classic Razor design that features sharp edges visually intersecting under different angles, thus creating a sporty, aggressive look. In addition, wide foot pads are to provide additional stability and safety while driving, and are also covered with rubber to avoid unwanted slipping. All in all, Razor sticks to its well proven recipe when it comes to the safety of hoverboard riders and this is very important since this model is intended for kids.
The Hovertrax Prizma stands on 6.5″ solid rubber tires with aluminum hubs. This is a compact and lightweight hoverboard weighing just over 13 lbs, so it is easy to carry it in a hand when the battery runs out. Since these hoverboards are intended for kids aged 8 or older, it should not be a problem for them to carry it. When not driving, it can be easily stored under the bed, in the closet or somewhere in the bedroom where it will not stick out. The dimensions of this model are 23.2″ x 7.1″ x 6.8″, so it does not take up much space in the house.
I was especially amazed by Hovertrax’s multicolor LED lights. Thanks to the multicolor LED lighting, this hoverboard looks like a disco on wheels. LED lighting is located on the front in the form of two elongated LED strips (one on the left and one on the right). However, the Razor did not stop only at thefront LED lighting. Razor LED logos are placed on both wheel hubs, so when driving in the dark it gives the impression of LED spinning blades. This is a very cool effect that your kids will just enjoy in.
I have already said that Razor hoverboards are characterized by exceptional quality of workmanship, and this model is no exception. The frame is made of metal, coated with a shutter-resistant polymer mask that can be in black, blue or pink. The metal frame and shutter-resistant mask ensures the durability and resistance to shocks, scratches, and damages, enabling it to be used longer as your kids’ favorite rideon. The maximum load capacity of this model is 176 lbs, so it can also be used by teenagers and adults who meet this maximum weight requirement.
Motor, Battery, Speed and Range of Hovertrax Prizma
The Razor Hovertrax Prizma is equipped with dual 150 W brushlesshub motors (one on each side) with EverBalance auto-self-balancing gyro-sensor technology and maximum output of 350 W. The motors are powered by 25.2V lithium-ion battery pack enabling the rider to run as fast as 9 mph. On a single charge it will run for a 40 minutes continuously or around 6 miles (depending od riding style and terrain). After the battery runs out of juice you will need around 4 hours to fully recharge the battery (initial charging time is up to 6 hours). You can track battery life on built-in battery level indicator with green, orange and red lights (when all three lights are on, the battery is full, only flashing red light accompanied by beeping sound means the battery needs recharge).
The Hovertrax Prizma is equipped with more than one safety systems and measures in order to be as safe as possible for your kids. First of all it UL2272 certified meaning that it has passed all necessary UL tests and it is safe from fire hazards. Secondly, the above mentioned EverBalance auto-self-balancing gyro-sensor technology is here to keep it steady while stepping on or off hoverbord. And finally, this model has two driving modes, Training mode for less experienced riders and when it’s on the maximum speed of this model is limited under 5 mph, and Normal mode with maximum speed of 9 mph.
Deffinitely one of the best and safest hoverbords for kids on the market. Beside safety, sporty design, and nice performances, I liked the multicolor LED lights, which is a really cool feature. Also, the price is more than acceptable, concerning how well made is Hovertrax Prizma, and for just $179 you will get a lot more than at the competing models for the same price. Very good and reliable hoverboard.

Size: 23.2″ x 7.1″ x 6.8″

Segway Ninebot S-Plus by Segway is the latest and best hoverboard model by popular Segway. Actually it is an upgrade of their best selling model Segway Ninebot S. We will give you main characteristics of Ninebot S-Plus with comparison to Ninebot miniPRO.
Features and Characteristics of Segway Ninebot S-Plus
Segway Ninebot S-Plus is top model of Segway mini hoverboards and represents ultimate mini hoverboard offering, besides features available with miniPRO and miniLITE, numerous additional features and characteristics are present.
First let’s talk about downsides. Firts downside of S-Plus is non existing trolley handle in case that you need to walk your Segway around (in case of empty battery or when you in area non suitable for Segway ride). This could be very important when you know that S-Plus is noticeably heavier than the miniPRO, at 36lbs, versus the 28lb miniPRO. True, you can use knee pads as a troley, but this is not so sleek.
Also, you need to be aware that mud-guards on the S-Plus are now part of the base meaningyou will need to spend much more money to replace them in case of damage. And one of major downsides is the absence of height-adjustable knee bar and this could be very annoying for tall riders making the steering much more difficult and even dangerous for them.
But, not all is so bad at S-Plus. There are many important, useful and cool additions and upgrades like 11″ tires versus 10,5″ at miniPRO enabling faster ride than on miniPRO and adding more security on rougher terrains. The maximum speed of S-Plus is 12,5 mph. Except more speed larger tires are giving bigger driving radius of unbelievable 22,5 miles or almost two hours of ride. It is important for riders who are using this Segway as a commuter vehicle.
Second important upgrade is “follow me” feature with remote control. However, it doesn’t mean that S-Plus will follow you around the corner or obstacle, it will go in straight line behind you and if you are far away from the vehicle check if there are any obstacles because it will bump the obstacle. So, you will need to set closer follow distance between Segway and remote.
And third important upgrade are 800W dual motors for greater power and speed.
Also, there are some new cool features at S-Plus. The steering column is wider and has a storage for remote control, LED lights are placed on the rim of wheel hubs and LED headlight is positioned on top of the steering bar giving better lightning and more futuristic look. And, at the end, Segway S-Plus represents the most exclusive Segway mini hoverboard where the rider will be noticed for sure.
We recommend it for those willing to pay an extra price for prestige and quality!!!

Main Characteristics of Powerboard by Hoverboard

So, we won’t be making another turn on EPIKGO hoverboard and instead of that we will present to you possibilities and upgrades available at the EPIKGO Sport Series.

At the first glance you will notice that EPIKGO Sport and Sport + are heavy and very well built. One could think that heavier construction is the downside of EPIKGO because carrying it would not be much fun, but sturdy and durable aluminium alloy chassis, aluminium wheel fenders and 8,5″ alloy rims and wider foot pads (all influencing bigger weight of EPIKGO than the competition products) are here to make the ride more aggressive and at the same time to prevent serious damage on your hoverboard. The EPIKGO Sport is a machine that will power you anywhere, and if you need hoverboard that is going to last choose this one.
EPIKGO Sport Hoverboards vs EPIKGO Classic Hoverboards
What is so different at the EPIKGO Sport and Sport + than at the Classic EPIKGO? Well, we could say that the main difference is in their design, where Sport Series have more aggressive look (it doesn’t mean that Classic EPIKGO is not aggressive enough) and they are equipped with performance tires which transfers more power from the board to the ground instead of all-terrain tires present at EPIKGO Classic. Also, EPIKGO Sport + have higher ability to scale slopes up to 30 degrees instead of 15 degrees at the Classic Series.

It comes with upgraded hoverboard design with some additional built-in features like LED lights for safety during night rides, battery level indicator and non slip feet platform.
