The Hoverboard market is increasingly more difficult to navigate as more and more companies enter the fray, each with their own suite of hoverboard models that, on the surface, don’t appear all that different from one another. It’s not uncommon to scroll through a bunch of hoverboards and ask yourself, “What’s the difference? They all look the same.” And they do – on the surface. They are two wheels, two footpads, and a plastic shell around some electronics… simple right?
For the most part you’d be correct. While a range of quality certainly exists in the industry, the variety of product specifications and features, varies much less than in other LEV markets, such as electric skateboards and electric bikes.
This lack of variation is due to the fact that the hoverboard industry is still in its infancy. There has been little time for innovation. But all that is beginning to change.
One of the biggest weaknesses of hoverboards is their inability to traverse unpaved terrains. For the most part, hoverboards perform poorly on grass, gravel, and mulch, etc. But thanks to a new genre of hoverboard – the all Terrain hoverboard – conquering unpaved terrains has never been easier.
Check out our list below of the top 5 all terrain hoverboards available today!
All Terrain Hoverboards
The Onewheel hoverboard is without a doubt, one of the most innovative boards on the market. It consists of a giant rubber wheel positioned in the middle of the deck, with the rider’s feet resting on pads on either side of the single wheel. The large wheel makes it ideal for all terrain riding.
The hoverboard is powered by a brushless hub motor, which means there is very little drag and maintenance required.
It has a 6-7 mile range per charge and can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour! The Onewheel can be fully charged in as little as 20 minutes!
