- The VEVELINE 6.5 inch self-balancing scooter features an impressive quick-learning system and the latest self-balancing technology. This makes it a particularly easy board to mount and dismount – ideal for kids and anyone who lacks riding experience.
- Under the hood, a pair of 300W motors deliver the kind of raw power needed to carry riders up to 260lbs in weight.

My Experience with VEVELINE Hoverboard
With its simply stunning looks, you immediately get the sense that the VEVELINE 6.5″ hoverboard is more of a toy than a serious scooter. After all, huge time and effort have clearly been invested in its outer design – could it be a case of all style, no substance?
In a word, no. And not even close – the VEVELINE self-balancing scooter is an all-round powerhouse that means business. The manufacturer talks of intuitive stabilisation technology – the purpose of which becomes evident when you step on the board. There really can’t be many scooters out there that are as easy to mount or dismount as this. I’m no newcomer to hoverboard riding, but I guarantee first-timers would have no problem getting started with this thing.
Set the board in motion, and the huge power delivered by those twin-300W motors becomes immediately apparent. This budget board is able to carry riders up to a maximum weight of 260lbs, making it one of the most capable in its category.
The official top speed is set at 9mph, which equates to a cruising speed closer to 8mph or so on average. This might not sound like a lot, but you need to factor in the amazing pulling power of the VEVELINE 6.5 inch hoverboard. Even with heavier riders and when faced with steeper hills, it gets the job done with ease.
They’ve really gone to town with the flashing LEDs, making for one of the most eye-catching spectacles you’ll ever see. There’s also a pretty decent Bluetooth speaker built into the board, though it’s not something I typically use mostly for the sake of my neighbors.
It takes about two and a half hours to charge this scooter, which is a relatively weighty board but not uncomfortable or inconvenient to carry. The only slight downside to the whole thing being a lack of waterproofing, though this is to be expected from a low-cost board for less than $150. In terms of overall value for money, the general performance and capabilities of the VEVELINE Hoverboard came as a very pleasant surprise.
