In addition, there is lot of positive reviews on the manufacturer’s page. The HR rating indicates that people have been very satisfied with their purchase. If you are looking to get your feet wet and buy a cheap hoverboard, this may the product for you.
The RioRand Balancing Electric Scooter operates using the same principles as other models, by just shifting your weight, but does not offer some of the premium features that make the Segway more enjoyable and easy to use. For example Bluetooth is not available on this device, meaning that you will not be able to listen to music through your Segway with wheels. A remote or a case is also not included. Blue LED lights come standard and illuminate the way in front of you at night. The LED lights are a nice hue of blue and do a great job of catching attention as well as serving their purpose. Color selection is limited but if you like how it looks don’t worry that you’re getting something that’s bottom shelf. You will be happy with your purchase.
Alright, next up we got something different. Are you looking to get a mini Segway scooter that is unique and unlike anything that even enthusiasts have seen so far. If so, the HoverBeats scooter is for you. This hoverboard Segway stands out in multiple ways. The color palate on the foot rests and the body is sweet. The combination of black and red is sure to catch a few looks. If that is not enough, how about two tone led lights, featured not only on the front, but the sides, and even on top. How much more could you ask for. Not only will you see where you are going at night, you will be more visible riding this two-wheel scooter compared to other designs we have seen. The combination of blue and green lights looks dope.
We haven’t even mentioned the best part! The HoverBeats comes with built in speakers. Yes that’s right, if you have a Bluetooth capable device such as an Iphone or Android phone, you could have the ability to connect the 2 wheel scooter up to your phone and broadcast yourself to the masses. This version of two wheel self balancing scooter is great for self motivated business man promoting their business or anyone that wants to listen to their music on blast. Premium features command a premium price. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Know anyone who loves a great present and loves looking in the mirror? Let me show you this balance scooter. This is the most unique finish / color combination that we have come across. The most popular finish on this kind of Segway is chrome mirror, but Spaceboard is also available in four great colors like metallic gold, candy apple red, and wet black. One of the most common complaints that people have with electric hoverboards is that they scratch up easily. We found that the chrome finish on this electric scooter was very resistant to dings and road rash.
This version felt like it was made with premium materials and it shows. One of our favorite features, the built in Bluetooth speakers also makes an appearance in this balance scooter. The sound quality is great with pleasant high notes and deep booming bass notes. The spaceboard gets points originality and checks all the boxes. The solid built quality is also reflected in the maximum weight capacity for this device. If you are on the heavier side and would still like to buy your own scooter, don’t look elsewhere. The max weight limit is 325 pounds.
The CoolReall balance scooter makes use of the original scooter design but makes it affordable at an amazing price point. This type of Segway was my original purchase and introduction to the world of personal transportation devices and I can personally vouch for the quality and reliability. With this variety you are not getting all the bells and whistles of some of the newer features but what you do get is time tested technology that is reliable and user friendly.
The specification that stands out the most for this scooter is the battery. The 4.4 Amp batteries are made by Samsung and have not failed us to date. The device charges in an impressive 2 hours or less and just needs to be plugged into a standard wall outlet. The best part is that you will be able to enjoy the Coolreall personal transporter for driving range of up to 12 miles. To put that in perspective, that is the length of the average commute distance around the country. You could take your Segway board to work, charge it on your paid time, and take it back home. I did just that and saved tons of money on transportation costs, allowing me to spend my money on things that matter most to me.
The Erover hoverboard segway is a great entry to the list and definitely deserves to be mentioned. Hoverboard Reviews has done a full review of this type of scooter and we were thoroughly impressed with the speed that you can gather. While testing this electric Segway we were able to clock the velocity at an impressive 15 km/h. To give you an idea of how fast that is, most people walk at around 4-5 km/h. You can get from place to place on this thing in a breeze. Make sure to wear a helmet as at that speed you can get hurt, don’t ask how I know. Also keep in mind that it is up to you how fast you want to travel. If you just want to cruise down the boardwalk at an easy pace you have the option to do that.
Self-balancing scooters respond to the pressure you apply with your feet to determine how hard the motors work. A drawback that we identified was that the weight capacity is rated at 220 pounds. If you exceed that weight you may be risking damage to the motors if you ride this version. The good news is that other models are better suited for your needs.
This version features advanced self-leveling technology that is available at an amazing price. At the time of making this list, the ForTech was towards the top the sales list, most likely because the price is a steal. The balancing scooter felt amazing in our hands and appeared to be made of the highest quality materials. Compared to some of the other electric scooters for sale, we were thoroughly impressed. The scooter has a weight of approximately 28 pounds or 13 kilograms and is very portable between your stopovers. Adults should have no problem carrying the ForTech Two Wheels Mini Smart Self Balancing Scooter around the office or home. Children might need some assistance lifting it but that is not often required; after the entire two wheel hoverboard is meant to be driven, not lugged around.
The amount of colors to choose from is also a big bonus. The manufacturer features eleven distinct colors. With such a selection, anyone can pick a coloration that matches his or her personal style and fashion sense. Protective bumpers also come standard with this transportation device. The high-grade rubber bumbers protect your new toy from damage and wear. We suggest you install them as soon as you receive your ForTech to keep it looking good as new.
This model is an enthusiast favorite. Some of the things to take note of right from the start is that this balance board Segway features all of the best thing that we love about this amazing personal travel device: Bluetooth speakers, dual LED light, and upsized wheels. The kicker is that although these specifications are available from other select manufactures, the Skque offers them at one of the lowest prices. Bluetooth is great because you can take the party with you. You thought a regular mini Segway drew attention, wait until you get on one that has booted bass speakers built in and bright dual LED light shining like New Years Eve.
All that you need to put your music on blast is a phone, mp3 player, or anything else that can transmit music over Bluetooth. It’s hard to imagine listening to your favourite tunes while traveling at 10 miles per hour, but with the Skque electic scooter you can do just that. Whats most impressive is that the creators of this type of scooter were able to pack that much advanced high-end electronics into such a small package.
One of our personal favorite mini segway scooters is this one. This is the first time on the list that we come to a model that features larger wheels. This type of electric mini two wheel scooter is manufactured with ten inch wheels compared to others that have either six and a half or eight inch wheel sizes. With the increased size the benefit is that the type of the terrain that you can cover is greatly increased.
Regular cheap mini-segways are limited by their wheel size and sometimes have trouble going over large bumps, tall grass, and other non-smooth surfaces. With the 10 inch Skque hoverboard Segway that is not an issue. The big wheels are inflatable and allow you to traverse cracks in concrete, speed bumps, and uneven terrain such as grass or dirt with ease. The inflatable wheels also provide an additional cushion on air to ride on, increasing the comfort and the shock absorption capabilities of the balance scooter. We also should mention the distinctive color palate featured on this hand free transportation device. The graffiti theme is very cool and makes a great statement, definitely unique.
The Wonfast hoverboard is a premium model with bonus features and elegant design. The sleek lines on this version of Segway for sale separate it from the rest. The best-looking color combination available, in our opinion, is the red body on black wheels. Regardless of the color you choose, the advances features on the Wonfast hoverboard Segway are sure to make it an enjoyable experience to own and ride. Bluetooth speakers come standard on this model of electric mini two-wheel scooter. The speakers feature 360-degree sound that sound great with any genre of music. The bass is low and resonant and the treble sounds very balanced and not too high pitched. We suggest using an equalizer on your streaming device to get the most our of this segway scooter speaker.
The Wonfast smart scooter is very maneuverable and has a satisfactory top speed. It will not break any speed records but what it does do well is make quick turns and execute mind-bending spins. The turning angle for this segway board is 0 degrees. You can literally turn on a dime in this thing. This feature is best utilized when the road you’re on is hard to get around or most importantly indoors.
The monorover r2 was one of the first to come on the market and has gathered a small online following. This hoverboard features the original time tested design that performs just as you would expect. The self leveling technology introduced with hoverboard segways utilized two internal gyroscopes to detect your center of mass respond by outputting that information to the wheels to accelerate, decelerate, or execute sharp turns.
The best thing about the monorover is that the battery is long lasting and has a large capacity. On a single charge you can travel up to 20 kilometers. Keep in consideration that the ratings for travel distance put out by the manufactures are dependant on several factors. How far you can travel will depend on how much you weigh, the slope of your terrain, and the speed you travel. The monorover is a great all around choice if you are looking for a present for someone or looking to treat yourself to a new toy or transportation device. One thing that could be of nuisance for some is that the battery takes longer than others to charge. If you need a quick charging device, this is something to consider. Nevertheless if you charge your segway mini scooter overnight this should not be an issue at all.
The Ihome manages to outperform and outmaneuver the competition by utilizing bigger wheels. This model of balance scooter is fitted with extra large ten inch inflatable wheels that absorb impacts from uneven surfaces and make the riding experience extra comfortable. You will appreciate the increased wheel diameter if your riding route contains many bumps, cracks, or uneven terrain. Another benefit of this feature is that the weight capacity of the hands free Segway is improved in comparison to different competitors. Overloading the motor with excess weight can damage them and reduce efficiency or riding speed. Most other two wheel electric scooters have a maximum rating of around 220 pounts. The Ihome520 can handle up to 264 pounds.
The design of this hoverboard segway is absolutely outstanding. The black on red design with flames embedded in the body of the 2 wheel balance board look on point. The color scheme also goes well with the chrome wheels, which stand out tremendously due the large wheel hub size. Another thing that should be noted is that this thing is fast. Some users have claimed they have gone as fast as 18 kilometers per hour on this electric hoverboard. The weight of the transportation device is a bit high at 16 kilograms but should be manageable for most people.
The Suoku mini-Segway is ideal for individuals seeking to take their balance scooter off-road or ride level ground in extra comfort. The device has a maximum speed of 15 kilometers per hour but expect to go a bit slower when going over obstacles. The climbing angle of the Suoku is an impressive 25 degrees. The powerful motors built into the self-balancing scooter can propel you up steep slopes allowing you to stay on your board and utilize the two-wheeled scooter to its maximum potential. Another important feature that makes this particular mini-segway suited for off road use are the extra textured footpads on the top of the unit. The rubberized footpads keep your feet planted safely on the contact surfaces allowing you to maintain your balance and power the segway.
The Samsung built premium battery on the Suoku self balancing mini segway propels the model for up to 15-25 kilometers on a single charge. While riding it on uneven ground, expect the battery life to be shorter due to more demands on the motor. Nevertheless the battery on this electric hoverboard is long lasting and should not leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere with no battery left to get you home.
The Locas balance scooter is an easy to use machine that is also very easy on the yes. At first glance we were attracted to the remarkable neon green color of this device but there is much more to it than meets the eye. The hoveboard segway is fitterd with two 500-Watt motors. The power emanating from these dual motors allow the rider to glide down the street at a maximum pace of around 16 kilometers per hour. At this speed you could be whizzing past people walking down the street or even jogging. The best part is that riding mini segway scooters is so much fun you will not want to get off. The long battery life on this model also ensures that you will not have to get off often as it can last for trips of up to 16 kilometers.
Riding the Locas W1 2-wheel self-balancing mini scooter is very simple but it may take some practice to begin with. There are no complicated controls or buttons to keep track off. To begin your journey all you have to do is step on with one foot and wait for the green led light on top of the machine to shine. After that you are ready to step on with your other foot and go on your way.
The CHIC hoverboard segway is a powerful machine that is also sure to turn heads. The manufacturers of this model have used the classic design for mini segways but added their own personal touches to make this version stand out from the rest. One of the things that is sure to impress riders from functional perspective is the integrated rechargeable battery that is included with this balance board segway. Another benefit of purchasing this electric hovoverboard is that it comes shipped with a stylish carrying bag. The bag is well constructed and fits the Chic balancing scooter like a glove. The carrying bag is great to protecting the finish on the segway, caryring it in between riding sessions, and for storage.
The camouflage overlay on this electric hoveboard is also one of a kind. Our reviewers have not seen this type of design available from any other manufacturer. The camouflage print matches great with green or grey clothing and is a fashion statement in itself. The price for this model is a bit more than other mini segways but the performance and appearance of this machine are more than worth it.
Powerful batteries and motors is the name of the game when we’re talking about the TerGing hand free segway. The battery has a specification of 4.4 amps and we found it to be very long lasting. Although the capacity is very impressive you don’t have to worry about waiting an eternity to charge your new toy. The CHIC SmartC2 has a feature that allows it to quick charge in 30 minutes. A full charge takes a bit longer but if you don’t have time to wait for the segway hoverboard to charge then plug in for half and hour for about half charge and repeat at needed. The battery is also durable. The testing results for the battery indicated that it could last up to 1000 cycles; most likely more than most consumers will ever require. A battery protection feature is also built into the device that ensures that you do not the battery to its minimum charge and potentially damage it. Battery protection is a nice feature that extends the life of the mini two-wheel scooter.
The TerGing is also very low maintenance and made of very durable materials. The device weighs approximately twenty-five pounds and that is mostly due to the fact that high quality premium materials are used throughout. The wheels on this mini segway are one-piece solid rubber that does not need any inflation to keep you going. No need to worry about flat tires and getting stranded without being able to use your personal transportation device.
The YoloDecks is one of the most affordance cheap mini-segways on the market today. The price for this segway is hard to beat. We expect that this model will drive the price of other mini segways down and that is great news for everyone. In terms of features you can expect similar things compared other cheap hoverboards. The wheel size for this model is six and half inches. Smaller wheels are more efficient on smooth level terrain but they do not do as good of a job going over bumps and uneven surfaces. If you are planning to use the device indoors on well maintained concrete this should not be a problem but if you want to go over surfaces such as tall grass or dirt, we suggest you look into a balance board that has larger wheels.
The YoloDecks is an awesome choice if you are on a smaller budget and are trying to save money in the long run. As previously mentioned the up front costs of purchasing this transportation device are quite low. The hoverboard with wheels can also be shipped to around the world free of charge, courtesy of the manufacturer. Furthermore the cost of operating the 2-wheel scooter is minimal. The YoloDecks is a functional transportation machine but does not force you to spend money on gasoline or other costly expenses such as insurance and maintenance costs.

In addition the LED light on the top and front of the device work with this color scheme.

A self balancing scooter is an automatic balancing rover with 2 wheels, which allows the user to move as though they are riding a Segway – the difference being, with these scooters, you only use your feet to control the device. The technology on which these scooters are based on is largely borrowed from the modern Segway, except that these scooters are smaller and can be carried over the shoulder, making them very convenient, portable, and affordable.
These mini segways, as they are popularly called, have been featured by all major media outlets and are the vehicle of choice of YouTube celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Casey Neistat, and Tmartn. They are considered hip, modern and cool and guaranteed to get you a plenty of attention, should you choose to ride it to work or school.
The self balanced scooter is one of the most popular products out there and it is spreading like wildfire in universities and schools across the country. A lot of people - kids, college students, tech professionals, sales guys, young women - are eager to know more about these amazing gadgets. Many have already bought mini Segways and can be seen going to school, work or to the nearest Starbucks on them.
These self balancing scooters can reach a top speed of up to 15 miles per hour and are ruggedly built. They are capable of withstanding a plenty of hits and crashes and can take a lot of punishment. To accelerate, apply pressure with the front of your feet. There are a couple of driver motors within the wheels that can be controlled by the feet, which allow for quick and easy turns, smooth braking, rotation, besides acceleration. These scooters weigh around 22 pounds, and are definitely not light, but can be carried over the shoulder.
Next in this Hoverboard Segway Review, we discuss how to make sure that you buy the right self balancing scooter, considering there are so many different models available.
There are a number of factors to be considered when choosing the right Hoverboard Segway such as total degrees for cornering, battery capacity, top speed, scooter safety, ease of use, the weight of the scooter and so on. Let’s find out more about them.
The board is made from hard plastic and the device itself is controlled by four different sensors, two sensors under each foot. The sensors start working once you step on the board with both feet and find your balance. Some mini Segways come with fancy LED lights, balance indicator and battery indicator. In fact, there are some models that come with a built in Bluetooth speaker and a remote to control the direction. While the bells and whistles may differ from one model to another, the design, weight restrictions, speed and battery power remain the same, for the most part.
There are several models of self balancing scooters out there, and there are many differences from one model to the next. The various models of hands free segway may differ in price, maximum speed, weight, and available features that come with each device. Should you buy mini segway belonging to an entry level model? Generally, the entry level model costs just under $300 and goes up to a top speed of 8-12 miles per hour. Premium hoverboards generally have a higher top speed and can be had with advanced features such as bluetooth speakers, larger wheels, and a wireless remote control.
When riding these scooters, you want the roads to be as straight as possible. But that’s not always the case. You’ll have to negotiate a plenty of corners before reaching your destination. That’s why it is important that any self balancing scooter you buy takes a minimal number of degrees for cornering. The total degrees for cornering taken by your mini-Segway should be as low as possible.
One of the hardest things to do when you’re riding these scooters is to ride uphill. The scooter should be able to climb easily, otherwise it really is of no use to you. You want your scooter to climb as much as possible. Self balancing boards use powerful motors to allow you to travel at high speeds in addition to being able to go up steep surfaces without having to get off your segway scooter. Smart electric scooters can climb slopes that are up to 15 degrees. You want to consider the power of the motors and the climbing ability of the hoverboard before you purchase it to ensure that you will be able to ride it easily in your neighbourhood.
Speed is an important consideration. Most Hoverboard Segways give you a top speed of up to 12 MPH, which is quite fast. You really don’t want a top speed higher than that, especially on a busy street. But you don’t want your scooter to be slow either. When riding at top speed, be sure to have adequate protection.
When you ride the mini Segway on a flat road, it feels like you are flying, but really you would only be going at a jogging pace of 10 to 15 miles. So the device is safe, provided you are sufficiently alert when riding it. It is also important to know that you can control how fast you go on the level board by controlling the pressure on the sensor pads. If you want to go faster apply more pressure. If you just want to go for a cruise on your hoverboard, apply light pressure in the desired direction and be on your way comfortably.
The last thing you want is for the batteries to run out and for the scooter to lose power in the midway to your destination. That’s why you should buy a scooter with high battery capacity, the more the better. You’ll need low battery protection as well.
It takes 1 to 2 hours to charge a mini Segway and it can cover a maximum distance of 15 miles on a single recharge. This may not be much, but if your commute to work or college is short, then taking the self balancing scooter along makes sense.
The scooter should have a dual balancing system to ensure your safety. But that’s not enough. You should wear proper protective gear as well. Wearing a helmet is a must while riding these scooters. Several models of hoverboards also come with speed protection and several modes of difficulty to suit the needs of differently abled riders. In the amateur mode, the speed will be limited to protect the rider. For those more experienced, advanced riders, the professional mode3 will allow you to take full advantage of everything that the hoverboard segway has to offer.
You may find it hard to get the balance right at the start if you are a clumsy person by nature. But with a bit of practice you will be sure to get the hang of the device. Riding a self balancing scooter is very intuitive - in fact, before long you will find yourself accelerating at top speed on the road. Kids learn riding self balancing scooters much faster than adults because of their more adaptive nature.
Ease of use is an important consideration while selecting the right balancing scooter. You can start riding these scooters quite comfortably with just an hour or two of practice. They operate in a highly intuitive way and you should be able to get used to them in no time at all.
2 Wheel Scooters are great for people of all ages. The intuitive hands free controls for mini segways make it very accessible and fun to use. There are no pedals or buttons that you have to use to start moving the board. Simply step on the scooter board one foot at a time and allow the self balancing technology within the electric scooter to take you wherever you want to go. It is that simple.
The device itself weighs 22 to 26 pounds and is 2 feet long. Most 2 wheel hoverboards can carry a maximum weight of 220 pounds, but some can carry more. Consult our hoverboard comparison chart at the top of this page to determine what board is sturdy enough for your weight. Now, there are actually a very few people who weigh more than 220 pounds, so this should not be a factor. Hoverboard segways travel better on smooth surfaces and are much easier to handle on flat roads, although you can ride them uphill and downhill as well, with a bit of practice.
A self balancing scooter should not be too light or too heavy. If the scooter is too heavy, controlling it may be hard. If too light, it may not be strong enough to withstand much punishment – a couple of knocks and that would be the end of it. You should look for self balancing scooters that weigh between 20 to 22 pounds – that’s the ideal weight for them.
