Customers often come to us to ask which board is right for them. Here we will try to answer many of the common questions on the models that we offer to help you make the right decision. We have also provided a simple comparison table. You may also be interested in reading our Frequently Asked Questions section.
What hoverboards do you offer?
We currently offer four different models of our Swegway hoverboards:
- 6.5″ Classic – our most popular model, offering fantastic value for money and a great all round experience. Perfect for indoor and outdoor use on flat surfaces, the Classic is suitable for those 8 years and over.
- 8.5″ All Terrain – this is the ultimate off-road hoverboard, with 8.5 inch solid off road tyres. It is IP56 Waterproof Certified and can handle virtually any form of terrain.
- 12” Ninebot Mini Pro – our largest model has 12 inch inflatable wheels. This gives it the ability to traverse rugged terrain as well as providing the support for heavier riders.
What size do I need?
The size you choose depends on your requirements. The 6.5” Classic may be most suitable for younger and less experienced riders, while those wishing to ride outdoors on anything other than a flat surface may prefer to choose the 8.5” All Terrain or 12” Mini Pro.
If you’re not sure which board might be best suited to you please feel free to give us a call on 01474 247760 and we will be happy to provide you with advice.
Am I too heavy to use a hoverboard?
The maximum user weight for riders on the 6.5” Classic and 8” Lambo is 100kg or 15 stone, 10 pounds. If you are heavier than this, the 8.5” All Terrain board can support a rider up to 18 stone.
Solid wheels or inflatable wheels?
Solid wheels are usually smaller. While they are sturdy and hard wearing, as a rule, the larger the wheel, the easier it is balance on uneven surfaces. Our 6.5” Classic model should only be used to flat surfaces. .
However, the 12” inflatable wheels of the Mini Pro model provide more stability and versatility, allowing it to function or grassy and uneven surfaces easily. Additionally, the 8.5” solid off road tyres of the All Terrain have been specially designed to allow you to travel on virtually any type of surface.
Is there a minimum age requirement?
For all of our models we recommend that riders be at least 6 years or older.
How fast do they go?
All of our models have a similar top speed of up to around 15kph or just under 10mph.
How far can I travel on a hoverboard?
With a fully charged battery, a Swegway hoverboard should provide around 2 hours of riding time. It will then need to be recharged, which takes around 2 hours.
