Hoverboard-Tips to Buy the Best Value in the Market

The hoverboard is a good innovation that replaces the use of traditional skateboard. In fact, it is easier to use and balance hoverboard than a skateboard. This stuff is widely known as modern transport choice for going at a short distance.

Basically, this board becomes popular in the UK in early 2015. It has many varieties and sizes. However, the point is still the same which is a self-balancing board. Because this product is considered as a new innovation, let’s look at some tips you have to choose the best value board on the market.

There are two types of the electronic board in the market. The one which has a board and two wheels on the edge side, connected with a hinge in the middle is called Hoverboard. It has a handless control and you only need to push a bit your foot accordingly in order to move. The board usually comes with the light on the front side of the board that you can rely on in the night use.

To control the board, you should push the sensitive pads on the right and left side accordingly. If you push your left foot forward, the wheel goes faster and turns it to the right side and vice versa. Even though it may seem to be difficult to control your balance, Hoverboard still gives you nice control of your board.

Another choice is Airwheel. It has no board here. Unlike the hoverboard, Airwheel only consists of one big size wheel in the middle. You control the movement by placing your feet on the left and right side. Push the left side if you want to turn right and vice versa. This board is more complicated to control since it has no large space for your feet. However, the big size of the wheel in the middle helps you pass the rough asphalt flawlessly.

The Maximum Weight Hoverboard Can Hold

You may ask yourself about the maximum capacity of weight the board can hold. Well, most Hoverboard with the 7-inch wheel can carry maximum 100kg. Of course, it depends on how the road condition as well. If you are heavier than 100kg, you may still use it but the body balance would be affected. If you find the 10-inch wheel, then it should be enough to carry the maximum of 120kg.

Overall, playing with this electronic board will be fun if you can choose the most suitable size and model as your need. While it was booming in early 2016, keeping your electronic board is still worth today. It would be a great choice of a transportation mode that replaces traditional skateboard with less intrusive sound. You can also control the board easily even if you are a new user.

However, if you go with Airwheel, you must be ready to put extra work for balancing this stuff. As it is mono-wheel, new users would prefer to use hoverboard that offers easier control.
