Some Questions To Ask Yourself When Shopping for the Fastest Hoverboards

Where will you use your hoverboard?

If you intend to stay on the street, most hoverboards provide a smooth ride regardless of the size of the wheels, but if you want to take it off the beaten path and on different terrain, you’ll want a model that’s made for all-terrain riding. That’s when it becomes important to look at things like wheel size, water resistance and extra power to get through muddy or grassy terrain. Larger wheels will help to traverse more diverse terrain.

How fast does a hoverboard go?

You can expect to find speeds that range from 6-15 MPH on most hoverboards. Most users find speeds of 10-12 to be the most comfortable and give them the best ride. One day we may even be able to buy a 20 MPH hoverboard, but not yet. Choose the speed that suits your needs. Most people don’t need the fastest model. Always look at how powerful the motor is as well. A good motor often equals good speed.
