Do you have a need for speed? Check out the fastest hoverboards in the world to find your perfect match.
If you are like most adults of a certain age, you have been wishing for a hoverboard ever since Marty McFly jumped on his futuristic model skateboard in the 1989 classic Back to the Future Part II. Not only was this futuristic board featuring amazing technology that allowed McFly to ‘hover’ above ground, it was also fast. Which was especially important for him to be able to escape for the inevitable ‘bad guys’.
While McFly was able to jump into this technology in the fictitious 2015, today’s hoverboards have been available to the public since 2013. While there have been some bumps in the road concerning design and safety, today’s boards are safer, more durable and faster than ever.
When it comes to hoverboards, or self-balancing scooters as they are also known, users can feel the difference even in models that are even one mile per hour faster. So when it comes to finding the fastest model on the market today, even half a mile faster can make all the difference.
Of course, owning a fast hoverboard is a fun idea, but it isn’t the only important feature. Along with speed, we also considered safety ratings, weight capacity, and special features. In addition, it is important to consider the experience of the rider and the terrain the hoverboard will be taken on. Speed doesn’t matter much if your hoverboard can’t go offroading or if the speed makes it difficult to master how to control your new board.
- Safety features including battery shield for fire and overheat protection.
- Max weight 220 LBS. Solid 6.5 inch tires.
- Travels up to 12 miles at 7 mph after 4 hours of charge.
- 90 day limited against manufacturer defects.
With all these features in mind we would like to present our official fastest hoverboard reviews for 2020.
1. RobotTurbo Hoverboard
The RobotTurbo Hoverboard comes in at the number one spot with a maximum speed of 15 mph. While the RobotTurbo isn’t new to the game, it is a great option if you are able to find it. Sadly, the company stopped producing these boards due to sales.
This classic hoverboard came out in 2017 but still holds up against today’s models. In fact, when it comes to many areas, including speed, it actually outperforms them.
While the RobotTurbo Hoverboard maxes out at 15 mph (most of the others on our list can’t go above 12 mph) it isn’t just a board for experts. The RobotTurbo actually has different modes for beginners and experts which makes it a great board to learn on that you won’t soon outgrow.
The unit is able to charge in less than an hour and still run for about 13 miles on a single charge. It performs well on smooth surfaces and with a maximum weight capacity of 240 lbs it is fun for the whole family.
2. FutureSaw Pro
The FutureSaw Pro Edition hoverboard is our top pick for the fastest hoverboard available in 2020. While the FutureSaw Pro’s speed can’t match that of the RobotTurbo topping out at 12.5 MPH, it is still the fastest hoverboard currently on the market.
While many other hoverboards can reach 12 MPH, the FutureSaw Pro Edition just edged out the competition by .5 of a mile. Perhaps this is due to its dual 350 watt motor and strong Samsung or LG ion battery. The battery takes between 60 and 90 minutes to charge with an ability to travel about 12 miles on a full battery.
The FutureSaw Pro also offers an unique design which is a full 8 inches off the ground to keep you moving even over large debris.
With its 8 inch wheels this self-balancing scooter can handle up to a 30 degree incline and riders up to 300 lbs.
While the FutureSaw Pro falls short of the RobotTurbo Hoverboard on a few specs, it far exceeds on the only one that really counts-it is still available for sale.
3. F1 Gyroor
The F1 Gyroor comes in at number three. Inspired by Formula 1 cars, you know this hoverboard is going to be fast. Maxing out at 12 MPH or 20 KM per hour, this hoverboard is fast, but it is also safe. The 8.5 inch racing wheels are made to be fast, but coupled with its steady design it is also easy to use.
While the F1 Gyroor is fast, it is also safe. This hoverboard is UL2272 certified. Your speed can be adjusted so that even a newer rider can enjoy this hoverboard and its self-balancing technology makes it easier to control.
The F1 Gyroor also has a smartphone app with a bunch of fun features. You can control the music on your bluetooth speaker, change your speed, change LED colored lights and manage your anti-theft alarm. Which is a handy feature since this smart board is bound to get lots of attention.
4. Magic Hover G F1
The Magic Hover G F1 is yet another hoverboard inspired by the popular Formula 1 racing sport. This model of self-balancing scooter can also reach speeds of 12 MPH or 20 KPH, which may not sound like a lot, but will certainly give its riders a thrill. While this type of power would certainly be thrilling for an adult or older teen, this hoverboard is not the right fit for a younger child.
Along with its top speeds, the Magic Hover also offers great durability. Its 8.5 inch wheels offer a smooth and steady ride. These tires coupled with this model’s dual 350 watt motors means you can climb up to a 30 degree incline without any problems.
This model also boasts IP54 water and dust resistance so if you are taking the road less traveled your hoverboard can handle the trip.
The Magic Hover G F1 may boast a higher price tag, but it also has the speed, power and durability to back it up. To top it all off it even has a handle for portability.
5. TOMOLOO V2 Eagle Off Road Hoverboard
The TOMOLOO V2 Eagle Off Road Hoverboard packs a lot of power and speed for the price. Unlike many of the other hoverboards on this list, the V2 Eagle is designed for off road use with two large 8.5 inch wheels packed with deep treads to conquer any challenging terrain.
The V2 Eagle also boasts dual 350 watt electric motors to give it the power to conquer unique off road terrains while still battling it out for the top speed position. This newer model to the block is still neck in neck for the title of fastest hoverboard on the market. It is right up there with the big boys able to reach speeds of 12 MPH or 20 KPH.
Another huge accomplishment for the TOMOLOO V2 Eagle is its battery power. This hoverboard is able to travel up to 12 miles with a single charge. A feat usually reserved for its much more expensive competitors.
While bluetooth speakers may not be a necessary feature for all hoverboards, it seems to make more sense in the off-road models. After all, if you are on the road less traveled, it seems more reasonable to take along some tunes for company. The V2 Eagle features 4.1 stereo surround bluetooth speaker.
In addition to all the on-board features, the V2 Eagle also boasts an impressive smartphone app. Not only does the app allow its user to change the headlights on the hoverboard, it supports up to 16 million different headlight colors. It also offers GPS support, battery life and first-learner mode.
6. Swagtron Swagboard Outlaw T6
The Swagtron Swagboard Outlaw T6, also known simply as the Swagtron Swagboard is a great off roading option that combines speed and durability to take on any terrain. This hoverboard design features 10 inch inflatable rubber tires with deep tread. The inflatable tires are mounted on aluminum rims and are designed to absorb the shock from all kinds of terrain. From sand, gravel, snow, mud, grass and anything in between; these tires are made to take a beating and keep on trekking.
