Hover-1 Blast Hoverboard stands out from the others because of its safe speed and mileage range. Besides, the safety features such as the certified lithium-ion battery and the non-slip foot pads are a relief to the parents of the young, new riders.
We bought this hoverboard and tested and experimented with it ourselves to make sure if it stood up to the mark. Here’s our comprehensive hover-1 blast hoverboard review so that you can make a wise decision while buying.
What is in the Box?
The package should come with the following components:
- A Hover-1 Blast Hoverboard
- A wall charger
- An User manual
The Hover-1 Blast Hoverboard features a solid black body that feels sturdy but not too heavy. The top surface has non-slip footpads with grip lines that make you stable and comfortable the moment you step on them.
The LED lighting on the wheels shines bright in various colors on a moving hoverboard. These and the front and back headlights make it an eye-catching scene when the hoverboard is in action in the dark.
Features of Hover-1 Blast Hoverboard
This Hoverboard has the following prominent features:
Hover-1 Blast features a max speed of 7 miles per hour. For the target audience, which is the pre-teen and teens, 7 mph is a safe speed range. The accompanying motor power and battery complement the speed limit for a smooth ride.
Range with a Single Charge
This Hoverboard can provide a mediocre but reliable range of 3 miles with a single full charge. This range is not enough for commuting or hoverboard racing but is safe and sufficient for a kid to have fun.
This Blast Hoverboard by Hover-1 features a 36 V, 4.3 Ah battery, a lithium-ion one for safety and performance. The battery takes 5 hours to fully charge. It can go bump less for up to 3 miles with a single charge.
Each wheel uses 160 W motor power to accelerate and decelerate quickly. The combined 320 W motor power provides a sufficient speed of 7 mph with an incline of up to 10 degrees. For kids ages 8 and above, the motor power is sufficient for a powerful ride.
The 6.5-inch wheels feature LED lights for a confident, stylish, and eye-catching ride. These LED lights shine bright against the robust, black body and constitute the attractive aesthetics of this hoverboard. The hoverboard also features LED headlights for safety while riding in the dark.
The 6.5-inch rubber wheels are made from high-quality material for the durability and safety of the little rider. The wheels are covered on the top by the extensions of the body of the hoverboard. Combined with the motor power, the wheels can incline a slope of up to 10 degrees.
The wheel diameter is enough to provide grip and stability on smooth as well as moderately rugged paths. The build material and size are also sufficient for handling the claimed weight limit, and they are made lightweight at the same time to keep the weight of the hoverboard in range.
When the hoverboard reaches your doorstep, and you completely assemble it, it weighs around 8 lbs. The weight may not be the best, but it works sufficiently well for kids ages 8 to 12. It is easy to pick up and carry in your hands too.
The maximum weight this hover-1 hoverboard can handle is 160 lbs. For its rider’s age, it is pretty good. Not just pre-teens but early teens who fall in this weight range can also ride and have fun with this hoverboard.
The non-slip foot pads are made so that every rider, whether amateur, intermediate, or expert, can hop on safely. No matter what size or weight you are or what type of shoes you are wearing, the hoverboard will not topple over because the footpads will stabilize the moment you put your first foot on.
My Experience with Hover-1 Blast Hoverboard
The Hover-1 Blast Selfbalancing Hoverboard came with a blast given its ideal price and a feature set that well-suits riders of age 8 and above. But we had to get it delivered to try it and then see for ourselves what’s best and what’s not. Hover-1 blast can safely and comfortably endure weights of up to 160 lbs.
This weight range is just perfect for pre-teens and teens. So, you may call this hoverboard suitable for amateurs and intermediate-level riders. With a max speed of 7 mph and a max range of 3 miles, it is completely safe and fun for an 8- to 10-year-old to ride around.
The speed and range for older pre-teens and teens might not be the most high-end, but it still works for beginners and intermediate riders. The rider instantly notices how quickly the hoverboard accelerates and decelerates on a smooth surface because of the powerful motor and battery combination. The LED lights, without a doubt, make it look like a pro.
In a nutshell, this Hover-1 Hoverboard is perfect for smooth and safe rides for beginners and intermediate riders. It is pretty easy to get a hold of, so this can be the best option if you have just started with hoverboards.
