- While it claims to go to 12 mph we felt that it wasn’t much faster than the average hoverboard that goes to 10 mph
Self-balancing hoverboards are no longer a thing of the future. With kids and adults alike drawing an interest, the sales and popularity of hoverboards have really gone through the roof. There are a wide variety of hoverboards to choose from with different functionalities. GalaxyBoard has really made a wonderful hoverboard which doesn’t blow you away but provides a smooth and easy ride, allowing you to get from one place to the other.
From the moment, you open the box of the GalaxyBoard, you will not be disappointed. It is built well with exceptional self-balancing technology which makes going for a ride on it a lot easier than the average hoverboard. We start our review with the design of the GalaxyBoard.
Like other hoverboards, the control of the GalaxyBoard is at your feet. You can guide it to go forward or backward. It comes equipped with LED lights on both sides so you can ride it out into the dark. However, the lights aren’t as powerful so we recommend you take precautions if you plan on using the hoverboard with low lighting. The build of the hoverboard is great, it can withstand a weight of up to 240 lbs. which makes it wonderful for both kids and adults. The design is more aimed towards kids with flashy colors.
The hoverboard itself isn’t too heavy at 25 lbs. The plastic material on the body seems quite durable, we had no issues during our test drive and use.
When it comes to hoverboards, the ride is the main element that should concern users. We truly enjoyed the ride of the GalaxyBoard. The board has the capacity to go up to 12 mph, which is slightly faster than the average hoverboard which peaks at about 10 mph. Many consider this to be a speed demon, however, we felt it was just slightly above as far as speed goes than average hoverboards. But the tires on the board ensure a smooth ride even at higher speeds which is why the ride was so great. It comes with reinforced wheels and tires that really grip the road allowing you to get a better handle when turning or going at higher speeds.
The board comes equipped with a 36V/4.4 AH Samsung Li-on battery, which allows it to ride for roughly 15 miles. So you can easily take it with you out on a trip and not have a need to recharge it. The charge time of the battery is quite fast with just up to 2 hours for full charge.
Overall, GalaxyBoard is definitely a hoverboard we recommend. It is sturdy, packs power, and provides smooth rides making it a smart buy for those that love hoverboards. Plus, it isn’t too expensive, priced just $70 more than the lower end hoverboard. Which make the GalaxyBoard a smart investment for those looking for a decent hoverboard.
