Last Updated on by Jason Leeman

what is the fastest hoverboard

If you’re interested in trying one of the many personal transportation gadgets you may be wondering, what is the fastest hoverboard?

First of all,

hoverboards aren’t exactly the fastest rideable out there. If you want speed, an electric scooters and an electric skateboards can travel much faster. 


Hoverboards still tend to be the most popular though and are fantastic fun for all ages!

In this article we're going to look at how fast can a hoverboard go and what's consider a high speed.

We're also going to look at what is the fastest hoverboard currently on the market that are UL2272 certified (so are safe to use no matter what the maximum speed is!)

how fast does hoverboard go

The average hoverboard max speed is actually about 8mph whereas the average electric scooter can travel up to 35mph and an electric skateboard up to about 25mph.

That makes a scooter or skateboard far more suited to commuting longer distances, and the hoverboard speed makes it more of a fun gadget for riding around your backyard, indoors, or around your local shops.

Of course the lower speed also makes it safer for people of all ages, including kids from about the age of 6 years and older.

So what is the fastest hoverboard on the market?

Let’s take a quick look at some of the popular hoverboards and their speeds. These are all listed as the hoverboard top speed by the manufacturer, but this can be affected by factors such as the rider's weight, ground incline, terrain, wheel size and battery life.

All of the below scooters are UL2272 certified with UL certified batteries so all are tested and safe:

Swagtron is probably the most popular brand of hoverboard in 2017 and their hoverboards are the T1, T3 and T5. The T1 and T3 have a max speed of 8mph and max distance of 12 miles whereas the T5 (which is more of a beginner hoverboard) has a max speed of 7mph and a distance of 7 miles per charge. The Hoverheart and Razor Hovertrax also travel up to 8mph and up to 12 miles.

Other lesser known brands (usually the cheaper hoverboards on the market) only have a top speed of 6.2mph.

Faster than these is the Segway Minipro (a mini Segway rather than a “hoverboard”) – this travels at up to 10mph and can travel up to 14 miles on a single charge. This has air filled tires so is suited to a variety of terrains and is more suitable for commuting than an ordinary hoverboard.

All Terrain Hoverboards Are Faster And More Powerful

The most popular hoverboards right now are the new brand of off road hoverboards – like the Segway Minipro these all terrain, bluetooth boards have pneumatic tires and are suited to traveling over grass, sand, gravel and rough ground (traditional hoverboards like those mentioned above work best on smooth pavement). They’re built to be bigger (8.5 inch tires vs 6.5 inch tires), stronger (400 watt dual motors vs 300-350 watt motors) and more durable, and they travel faster too.

The Halo Rover travels at a speed of up to 10 miles per hour for approximately 10 miles per charge.

However, the fastest hoverboard in 2019 is…

The Swagtron T6

The Swagtron T6 is one of the more expensive all terrain hoverboards (although certainly not the MOST expensive) but it travels faster too – at a speed of 12mph for 12 miles per charge. This has streamlined racing tires which increase speed, grip, and give you a smoother, faster ride.

After researching all UL2272 hoverboards on the market, this IS the fastest we could find AND the most powerful self balancing scooter on the market. It’s also the most expensive, but you get what you pay for! It’s actually a really good deal when you consider its off road capabilities, 5 star user reviews, bluetooth capability, IP56 water resistance, durability, and speed.
