This self-balancing hoverboard is suitable for kids aging 12 years or less. Its self-balancing mechanism, rubber wheels, and incredible design makes it one of the best products on the market.

It has a beautiful design with LED lights. The style is such that every child will be instantly in love with this model. I will highly recommend this model to everyone. If you are trying to search for a perfect Christmas gift, you can gift this hoverboard to kids.

Features and Specifications

Here is a complete description on the features of this amazing hoverboard. Take a look:


I will start with the design of this model. It is available in different colors. Some of the frames are simply available in a single color while there are others that give a stunning graphic print on the top of the frame.

Just like other products on the market like Convertible Hovershoes Electric Roller-Skating Shoes/Self Balancing Hoverboard, this one has also got expressive lights on the frame as well as the wheels.

The LED lights are great for illuminating the way while your child is riding in the dark. Even the other drivers can indulge in preventive driving with kids out there on the road.


The performance of this model is ensured by 300W powerful motor. The speed created by this product is suitable for beginners as well as the experienced riders.

To enhance the performance furthermore, you get 6.5 inches rubber tires and non-slip footpads that hold and balances the child in the most appropriate ways.

The overall performance of this product is praise-worthy. Starting from the speed to the wheels and balancing tendency of the hoverboard, the performance of this product is commendable.

Safety Certification

If you are among the parents who don’t give much heed to the safety certifications then its high time you start thinking about it soon.

This model comes with UL2272 certification that covers the battery and overall performance of this product.

You need to ensure that the batteries installed inside the hoverboard are not accidental because of overheating. This certification takes care of all the safety-related things and give you peace of mind that the hoverboard will not catch fire while your child is riding it.

Self-Balancing Mechanism

For first-time buyers, the ability of self-balancing of a hoverboard is very important. This product gives you high balancing tendency.

Even if your child has stepped first time on a hoverboard, he/she will be able to balance it from the very first instance. This product has got brilliant self-balancing tendency.

Bluetooth Speakers

In order to enjoy music while riding the hoverboard, there are Bluetooth speakers installed in this model. These speakers are of high-quality and very easy to connect.

What you have to do is to connect to the smart device with your hoverboard speakers and play the music of your choice. You can create playlist of your child’s favorite songs and let them enjoy their favorite music while riding.

Foot Sensors

You get gyroscope foot sensors in this product that sense the movement of the feet and help in changing directions. This is one of the most useful features of this hoverboard.

With other competitive models on the market, it is hard to find this feature. However, lucky for you, the food sensors function is readily available in this self-balancing scooter.

The Good

Here are some of the benefits of this hoverboard. Take a look:


This product is pretty affordable. I am highlighting this feature because you don’t usually get products like this on an affordable cost. The cost is very economically and suit the high-end construction of this product.


The speaker is also a great incorporation in the hoverboard. There are high-end models like EPIKGO Self Balancing Scooter Hover Self-Balance Board that don’t have provision for wireless speakers. But this model, especially on such a great budget comes with wireless Bluetooth speakers is definitely a pro.


The balance of this model is among its biggest strengths. The weight of this model and other mechanisms helps in establishing a fine balance of the hoverboard. Even if your kid is riding a hoverboard for the first time, there won’t be any balancing issues.


Interestingly, this model comes with multiple colors. Also, you can find plain designs in different colors or beautiful graphics like the CHO Electric Smart Self Balancing Scooter Hoverboard.

This model is quite graphically designed and has an amazing chic in its looks. Your kids will love riding the hoverboard.


The Bad

Here are some of the things that I didn’t like about this product.

Frame Material

The frame material does not seem to be very durable. The material could be fragile and you might have to work with it carefully.


The battery of this model is although safe but it does not last for too long. All I mean to say is that you can charge it fully and it won’t be able to operate for more than an hour. The run time of this model is small. You can enjoy short rides but don’t allow your child to take it too far.

Who Is It For?

This product is essentially for the budget-buyers. I have seen that people don’t have a lot of money to invest in a product like a hoverboard because kids lose interest in these things after using for a few years. This model is the best thing that you can purchase on a good price.


The EPCTEK 6.5 inches self-balancing hoverboard is a fantastic product. You will find all the greatest features that you can get in this price scale. I have personally observed this product closely and can say confidently that it is worth every single penny spent on it.
