“Hoverboards! Hoverboards! They all come and go, but the ones that catch our hearts stay forevermore!”- Yes, I have been humming this line all day, since last evening, and I don’t know why! Don’t worry, I haven’t gone crazy (yet), but this might be because of the all-new XtremepowerUS 8.5 Inch Hoverboard on which I have been riding all day!
While riding this LBW07 self-balancing scooter, I used to get the feel of the Marty McFly hoverboard from my all-time favorite movie, “Back to the Future.” Although the McFly hoverboard was a class apart, a truly futuristic gadget (thanks to today’s VFX effects in movies), it cannot (should not) be compared with the XtremepowerUS LBW07 hoverboard.
With superior built quality, this hoverboard is highly durable both – on-road as well as off-road. It is designed to stop traffic and turn heads while you confidently ride it on the streets of your neighborhood. This is the next best hands-free scooter that I have tried my hands (legs) on after the Tomoloo V1 Hoverboard.
All I can say right now is that all these extremely good boards have been spoiling me (has made me fastidious) by surpassing my expectations every single time. Now, without much further ado, let’s delve right away into the majestic XtremepowerUS 8.5 inch hoverboard review.

Health Benefits of Riding a Hoverboard
People believe that hoverboards were invented and manufactured for the sole purpose of fun and entertainment for children. Although it is true to some extent, it certainly does not paint the whole picture. Self-balancing scooters, apart from being fun (which is inevitable), also have a couple of health benefits, which I have personally experienced.
1) Improves your Eyesight:
Hoverboards can ride at the speed of around 10 to 12 km/h (this LBW07 hoverboard has a max speed of a whopping 16 km/h). Hence, riding a hands-free board at such a pace will automatically require you to focus and pay attention to the road a lot more (if you don’t intend to bump into someone). This enhances your concentration level and, thus, ultimately improves your visual perception significantly.
Note: Do not focus on your smartphone or tablet while riding a hoverboard, to enjoy the health benefits that it provides.
2) Keeps the Environment Healthy:
Have you ever pondered upon the fact that these tech beauties are not only fun to ride but also has a hidden nature of making the environment healthy? These self-balancing scooters run on Lithium-ion batteries, which give you a pollution-free ride! The health benefits of riding a hoverboard are not limited to the individual rider but also to the community. Ride a hoverboard to save the environment today!
My Experience with XtremepowerUS 8.5 Inch Hoverboard
After testing and reviewing the Tomoloo V1 hoverboard, I can confidently say that the next best hoverboard, which can become its genuine competitor, will be the XtremepowerUS 8.5 inch Off-road Hoverboard. I know that I had been overly enthusiastic about the Swagtron Swagboard hoverboard by reading the specifications according to its company’s claims, but it did not fulfill my expectations.
This 8.5 inch Off-Road All-Terrain Self-Balancing Hoverboard, on the other hand, proved to be a beast on the road! I must say that the company has invested significantly in the R&D of the product before manufacturing it. The comfort, feel, and the safety of this gadget that I experienced speak louder than the specifications or the advertisements made by the company.
The LBW07 self-balancing scooter is a product of the XtremepowerUS company, which has been in business for quite a long time now and has gained fame by manufacturing some awesome hoverboard.
Based on my personal XtremepowerUS 8.5 hoverboard review, I can say that these high quality 8.5 inches threaded tires allows a smooth ride even ride up the hill. This hands-free scooter would be a great choice for anyone who wants to experience the ultimate feel of riding a premium hoverboard while being on a budget.
Irrespective of how good a hoverboard is, it is bound to have some con(s), because a ‘perfect hoverboard’ doesn’t exist. Therefore, I always urge you to weigh the pros and cons of a self-balancing scooter before you shell out your hard-earned money to buy it.
