Top 5 Hoverboard Reviews in 2017

There’s been a fair amount of news about hoverboards, and much of it has been around safety concerns. Amazon has gone as far as removing all hoverboards from their website. But many people, including me still like the idea of owning a hoverboard. So after doing some research I have come up with a list of the top hoverboards and provided a review for each.

Swagway – Made for Stability

The Swagway is in my opinion the best option out there. Its one of the most stable, especially when in beginner mode and can still reach a respectable 7-10 MPH. Yes there are other hoverboards (like the Monorover) that can go faster but they tend to be less stable, it really jsut depends on what you want. The swagway comes with a 1 year warranty and a UL certified charger and battery.


Monorover r2 – Made for Power

The monorover R2 is noticeably more powerful than the Swagway, but like I mentioned before, its less stable and therefore harder to control. You’ll especially notice this when trying to break, it can be tricky sometimes. The monorover also comes with a one year warranty and US based support. If you want something with even more power, you should check out the monorover R2D


Hoverboards from China- Made for Budget

Hoverboards from Chinese companies are generally  the cheapest hoverboards. They have a little less power than the other two but its significant cheaper. They are usually more prone to breaking down and usually have little or no warranty/customer support. Of course for some people, other hoverboards are just too expensive. If you do buy from a chinese supier, make sure you get their contact information, to prevent them from disappearing after they make the sale.


Smartboard- Made for Looks

In my opinion, this is the best looking hoverboard out there. Most hoverboards look the same so if you have one of the few that actually look different, and really cool, you will stand out. Its also very new, so it has the latest tech and safety features for kids. It comes with a free carry bag which is nice but on the downside it only has a 30 day warranty on the hoverboard and a two year warranty on the accesories.


Skque – Made for Head Turning

The Skque hoverboard is one of the only hoverboards that looks significantly different from all the others. Not only that but it also can play music. Yep you heard me, all you have to do is pair it with your phone, tablet or other electronic music device and it will play music right out of the hoverboard. If itsw looks dont turn heads, the music definatly will. It’s also available in many colors. But there is a drawback. The Skque hoverboard is a little slower than the Swagway or Monorovers. its comparable to the average hoverboard from China. So it can still move, but just with a little less power. it also comes with a warranty and a free remote control.51E2oAoKhCL._SL1000_

Overall hoverboards, while they almost all look the same, can preform very differently. its up to you to decide which one is the one for you.
