For the end of 2017 Swagtron has released new and upgraded hoverboard. After T1, T3, T5 and T6 they are bringing to us new T580 model, After checking on it we can say that T580 is, actually, upgraded T5 with the twist. This model uses the same gyroscopic technology like Swagtron T5 but it has several extra features mainly in design, speed and LED lights.

As we already said, Swagtron T580 uses same gyroscopic technology already present on previous models but with modernized and upgraded design and features. This is light weight hoverboard and weighs 20 lbs (25 in box) and it is able to run as fast as 7,5 mph with maximum riding radius of 8 miles. It has 6,5″ rubber wheels and 150W dual motors able to take a person up to 220 lbs. It has 3 riding modes, learning mode for beginners, normal mode (same as T5) and advanced mode as new feature.
The main improvement when it comes to T580 is in its design which is much improved despite the fact that it is available only in black color (with red or blue details) and app for iOS and Android which enables you to toggle between modes, use map function, plan your routes, check battery level, control the speed etc. Also,l for more fun while riding it has built-in Bluetooth speakers and multi lever LED lights.
