#3 NINEBOT BY SEGWAY miniPRO

We could say that Ninebot by Segway miniPRO is a gentleman’s choice among hoverbords. This self-balancing scooter may be the only transportation vehicle rather than just fun gadget and numerous users agreed with this. Even at the first glance it is so obvious that the Segway miniPRO is much different than other self-balancing scooters available on the market. It’s bigger, safer, faster and you can ride it further than other models. Unlike other hoverboards, it has 10.5-inch air inflated wheels for smoother ride over bumps and with maximum speed of 10 mph you can drive it for 19 miles before recharging it. Some thoughtful design touches shows us that this is more an adult transportation vehicle than just a fun toy. It has brake lights, turn signals, a headlight, and a parking brake and for easier moving around it has an extendable handle so you could pull it like a suit bag. Ninebot by Segway miniPRO gives you the best value for your money.

InMotion MoHawk Prime R6 hoverboard may be the best hoverboard choice in 2016 concerning quality of the hoverboard and it’s price.

EPIKGO SPORT SERIES HOVERBOARD REVIEW

We already wrote about features and uniqueness of EPIKGO hoverboard in our Hoverboard Reviews. 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. What makes sport version of EPIKGO even better than classic one? There are two lines of EPIKGO sport series. First one is EPIKGO Sport and the second is EPIKGO Sport +.

epikgo-sport1

Both, EPIKGO Sport and EPIKGO Sport +  are UL2272 certified and thus safe for riding. EPIKGO Sport Series passed 159 separate test which are determining if this product is fire safe and fire resistant as well as vibration, crash and drop resistance of the product. EPIKGO Sport Series have successfully fulfilled all UL2272 requirements.  Sport Series of EPIKGO hoverboard are equipped with UL2271  certified LG smart battery with intelligent protection. Also, the EPIKGO is based in Silicon Valley which is great plus for maintaining close relation with the customers and quick reaction for their needs. 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-plus1

EPIKGO SPORT SERIES VS EPIKGO CLASSIC

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. One more additional feature of EPIKGO Sport + are built-in Bluetooth 4.0 speakers to make you ride even more fun. The EPIKGO Sport + can travel at speeds up to 12 mph for 12 miles on a single charge and you will need approximately 2 hours to fully recharge it.

InMotion-MoHawk-PrimeR6-gold

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM InMotion Mohawk PRIME R6 HOVERBOARD?

As said earlier, it is very durable and has fire retardant frame. Also, it is UL2272 certified and uses high quality LG batteries and has UL certified electrical system. Even if it has maximum speed of just 7 mph maximum driving range is very satisfying 12 miles. So you will have up to 2 hours of continuous ride before recharging it and the recharge time is around 2 hours.

With zero degree turning radius and 15 degree incline capability PRIME R6 is pretty similar to competition hoverboards but one big plus for InMotion MoHawk PRIME R6 is that maximum weight of the rider is 265 lbs (45 lbs more than similar products on the market). One more plus for PRIME R6 is 1-Year manufacturers warranty. This hoverboard is available in black, white, red, blue and golden color.

ROAM HOVERBOARD REVIEW

ROAM hoverboard presents one more in the line of UL2272 certified hoverboards with satisfying performances and best suited for younger riders and children (we recommend it as the first hoverbord). Why? Because it has maximum speed of 6 mph, so it is safer for first timers and kids. Beside UL2272 certification ROAM has UL2271 certified batteries and Ul certified power adapter. These certificates ensures us that this is safe hoverboard concerning fire accidents and battery problems (it has Samsung® or LG® built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that meets UL standard).

ROAM-hoverboard-red

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ROAM HOVERBOARD?

If you’re looking for speed blast on the wheels don’t choose this hoverboard. As we already mentioned it has maximum speed of just 6 mph. But, if you are looking for practical, safe, reliable and affordable hoverboard ROAM is definitely your choice. ROAM comes with standard hoverboard design (our main objection is about very simple and generic design) with some additional built-in features like LED lights for safety during night rides, battery indicator and non slip feet platform. But remember, with the maximum speed of 6 mph you will be able to drive only 9 miles before recharging it. Recharging time is approximately 2 hours but don’t be surprised if sometimes you need 3 hours to fully recharge ROAM hoverboard. This hoverboard has one of the best incline capabilities among hoverbords and its 45o. However, if you are experienced hoverboard rider you know that this is not for you, but among parents this is #1 choice for their children. And don’t forget that ROAM is available in black, blue and red color.

SWAGTRON T5 HOVERBOARD REVIEW

SwagtronT6-review

The youngest member of Swagtron hoverboards family is Swagtron T5. His precedents, Swagtron T1 and Swagtron T3 are already well known among hoverboard lovers. After T1 and T3 models one should expect that Swagtron T5 is an ultimate Swagtron achievement with real ride thrill and satisfaction. But, actually it really isn’t. Its more designed and oriented to beginners or first-time  riders, especially because it has learning mode. However, this is the cheapest Swagtron hoverboard on the market. How they managed to offer lowest price than for the Swagtron T1 or Swagtron T3 models? Well, you probably guess, the producer had to cut some features out of this model so it could be more competitive to cheap generic models present all over the market. It doesn’t mean that they discarded the quality, quality is still present only with fewer additional options.

SwagtronT5_black

SWAGTRON T5 CHARACTERISTICS

The design of Swagtron T5 is similar or even same as at Swagtron T1 but with less color variations, only black and white options are available. You should remeber that all quality hoverboards are UL2272 certified and Swagtron T5 has UL2272 certification and Swagtron SentryShield Multi Layer Protection Technology (battery chamber) is under new UL2271 certification. These certificates are here to guarantee to the buyer the quality of scooter and batteries and ensures the buyer that its not a fire hazard. On the other side, this model has maximum speed of (only!?) 7 mph with 7 mile range and incline capability of just 15° (comparing to 30° at T1 and T3 models). Also, the maximum weight of the rider is just 187 lbs or around 90 kg.

Inside the box you will find 1 Swagtron T5 hoverboard, 1 AC adapter, 1 power cable, 1 waranty card and 1 user manual. At the moment you can find Swagtron’s T5 equivalent (Hoverzon xS) available on Amazon. It has same design and characteristics like Swagtron T5.

SwagtronT5_box

How to fix a Swagtron that won’t turn off

If you have bought Swagtron T5 you might be experiencing one problem concerning turning off (or on) your self balancing scooter (and constant annoying beep sound). Why is this happening? First possibility is that you might have a slight problem with wiring system under the cover of your Swagtron T5 hoverboard. Or more precise, there is a possibility that wires are not correctly connected to logic board inside hoverboard (wires connecting power button and logic board). If this is a case you should uncover the hoverboard, plug the wires off the logic board and then plug them back in (check this video for explanation – just have in mind that this is an amateur video). But, we think that second possibility for this glitch is more probable. Since this is the cheapest Swagtron among Swagtron hoverboards they are using cheaper components including cheaper logic board. If the problem is in the logic board you should replace it with more quality logic board (check this video to see how to change logic board on your hoverboard). Prices and different logic boards for hoverboards you can find here. We hope this will help you.

However, our best advice is to buy more expensive Swagtron like Swagtron T3 or other popular hoverboards which are not experiencing this glitch like EPIKGO, InMotion MoHawk Prime R6, Hoverzon, Skque etc. For detailed reviews of mentioned hoverboards check out our Hoverboard Reviews section.

SKQUE HOVERBOARDS REVIEW

Back in February this year we wrote about Skque 10″ hoverboard as a real deal for all hoverboard riders. Remember that? Well, as you now, strict fire and safety regulations pushed it out of the market despite the fact that this model was high quality model with cool design and with no fire issues (at least we are not aware of any reported incident, correct us if we are wrong). We are happy to announce that Skque is back with capital B. There is a whole new family of Skque hoverboards available on the market again and they are all UL2272 certified.

WHICH SKQUE HOVERBOARD TO CHOOSE

Which one to choose, Skque I1 or maybe Skque X1L8 or maybe Skque X1L10. It depends how much fun do you need, how much money you have to spend and do you need regular or big wheels. Skque I1 is the smallest in the Skque hoverboard family with regular 6,5″wheels. Also, it has the most common design as majority of other hoverboards. It has LED lights and remote control with on and off function. Skque I1 comes in black, white, red, blue and green color (available on Amazon).

Skque_I1

On the other hand Skque X1L8 is slightly bigger with 8,5″wheels. New and improved design is applied on this model so it looks more aggressive than I1 model. Skque X1L8 has two variations, first one with LED lights and the second one with Bluetooth speakers and LED lights. Both variations are available in black, white, red and blue color. Depending on if it is equipped with LED light or Bluetooth speakers as well Skque X1L8 is $150 and $200 dollars more expensive than Skque I1 (check the prices on the bottom of this article).

Skque_X1L8

However, we liked the best the biggest and most expensive hoverboard in new Skque family, Skque X1L10. It has 10″wheels and similar but more robust design than Skque X1L8. Also comes in two varieties, with LED lights and Bluetooth speakers and only with LED lights. The LED light only model is slightly cheaper than one with Bluetooth speakers. Both variations are available in black, white, red and blue color and equipped with remote control.

REVIEW OF NINEBOT BY SEGWAY MINIPRO

The Ninebot by Segway miniPRO is, definitely, the most discussed product among two-wheel self-balancing scooters or “hoverboards” on blogs and social networks. But, what actually is Segway miniPRO? We could say that it’s a brave and true descendant of Segway. Remember that first self-balancing scooter invented by Dean Kamen some 15 years ago produced to make people’s lives easier and funnier? They were bigger and more expensive, so not many people decided to buy them. Eventually Segways pushed their way as guided tour vehicles across the world. Finally, the company was sold to Chinese Ninebot and revolution started.

ninebot-mini-pro-driving

Segway miniPRO is much different than smaller “hoverboards”. It’s bigger, faster, you can ride it further, it is safer and maybe the most fun “hoverboard” on the market. Yes, it is slightly expensive than competitors’ products but we think it gives you the edge other similar products are not able to achieve. It comes in two colors, black and white. We prefer black model because it looks more elegant and catchy than the white one.

Technical details and safety of Segway miniPRO

Even at the first glance it is so obvious that tha Segway miniPRO is so much different than other self-balancing scooters available on the market. First the size, it is 21.5-inch wide x 10.3-inch deep x 20-inch high and arrives in two parts (riding platform and knee high steering bar for easier steering and safer ride). You can adjust the height of the steering bar to meet the inside of your knees. Also, wheels, unlike other hoverboards, are 10.5-inch air inflated for smoother ride over bumps. Because of its’ size Segway miniPRO is considerably heavier than other similar products and weighs 28 pounds (around 19 kg). But, despite the size it is the faster self-balancing scooter on the market and its’ maximum speed is 10 mph. With one battery charge it has driving radius of 19 miles and for full battery recharge you will need to wait up to 4 hours. Segway miniPRO has two motors, one for each wheel

The Ninebot by Segway miniPRO can handle 15-degree inclines. We have to mention that this model is waterproof and dustproof which is great advantage. Some thoughtful design touches shows us that this is more an adult transportation vehicle than just a fun toy. It has brake lights, turn signals, a headlight, and a parking brake.

For easier moving around, when you are not riding the Segaway miniPRO, it has an extendable handle so you could pull it like a suit bag. The other solution is remote-control by the smartphone app which enables you to drive it to where you need it (we find it a great fun).

miniprotrolley
Extendable trolley handle

And not to forget, Ninebot by Segway miniPRO is among first, if not the first hoverboard that possesses UL2272 certification which proves that this model is safe for riding in the USA. Just flipover the Segway miniPRO, and you’ll see the holographic UL sticker as a proof.

One more neat thing for safety is that if you are riding to fast Segway miniPRO will beep and slightly lean back to slow down at more appropriate speed. For the first kilometer of riding miniPRO is locked at 4.3 mph.

Segway miniPRO app – takes the fun to the next level

On the body of Segway miniPRO you will find just one button (power button) and indicator lights for battery level, indicator of fast ride, lock and Bluetooth connection. We must stress that it is recommended to install app on your smartphone before turning power button on the miniPRO. If you miss to install the app and pair it with the scooter Segway miniPRO will be constantly producing annoying beep noise to remind you to do so. After installing the app and when it’s paired with the miniPRO the app takes you through seven screens of safety and riding advice.

Ninebot-Minipro

The app enables the rider to see in real time the speed of scooter, direction, battery life, to lock and park the Segway miniPRO, set the maximum speed limit, customize the lighting, remote control and observe the miniPRO’s temperature. When it’s locked and parked Segway app starts antitheft mode which will vibrate your phone and turn on the sound alarm on the miniPRO if anyone tries to move it or take it.

The difference between Ninebot by Segway miniPRO and Xiaomi Ninebot Mini

ninebotmini-vs-minipro

You may be heard about Ninebot Mini or Xiaomi Ninebot and asked yourself what it is. Well, Ninebot Mini is a version of Ninebot produced in conjuction with Xiaomi for the Chinese market. Ninebot by Segway miniPRO is “international version” of this cool self-balancing scooter. So, where lies the difference? Well besides the fact that Ninebot Mini is slightly smaller than Ninebot miniPRO it also has simplier  (we don’t like it) design, it runs slower with smaller driving radius, has a steering bar with a fixed height and has no trolley handle. However, take a look below for features of both versi0ons and decide which one is better:

HOVERZON HOVERBOARDS REVIEW

In search for the best available two-wheel self-balancing scooters or popular hoverboards available on the market we present you HOVERZON, a fun way to circle around the town. Hoverzon hoverboards, Hoverzon Type S and Hoverzon Type XLS, are quality products with reasonable price (Check the price here). Both types of Hoverzon hoverboards are using UL 2271 certified batteries with the latest HOVERZON Aegis Armor battery protection (it’s in compliance with the latest safety regulations), fireproof exterior casing and sensor pedals.

Hoverzon hoverboard comes in black, white, blue, gold, pink and red option.

hoverzon-self-balancing-hoverboard-typeS

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOVERZON TYPE S AND HOVERZON TYPE XLS

Hoverzon Type XLS is $100 more expensive than type S. Is it worth paying this extra $100? It depends on what is really important for you. If you have “bigger is better” life approach than Hoverzon XLS should be your first choice.
