#4 Onewheel Hoverboard

onewheel

Onewheel – Our pick for fastest hoverboard

Pros

  • 15 MPH maximum speed
  • Rugged and tough
  • The most fun hoverboard to ride

Cons

  • Expensive at $1500.
  • 4 mile range
Bottom line: As the fastest hoverboard in the world, with a high speed of 15 MPH, it is also ranks the most fun hoverboard that you can ride. You will want to take the proper safety precautions when riding this hoverboard. Since the Onewheel has only one wheel it takes a bit of practice and skill to master it, but once you do, it is a very rewarding experience. The trade-off for the speed is that it has a range of only 4 miles. That’s okay though, if you live in a city this is a speedy way to get around. So why didn’t we rank it #1? Only because it’s not entirely a hoverboard, and requires a fair bit of practice to ride. So because of that we ranked it as number 4 thanks to its top speed.

Fastest Hoverboard Buyer’s Guide

Be Safe First and Foremost

Safety should always be the first priority. All of the hoverboards in our guide have UL 2272 Fire Safety Certification, so they have undergone testing to make sure that they are not a fire hazard. Any hoverboard with this certification is safe to ride and you can rest easy knowing this.

Battery Life is Important

You want to choose the best battery life that you can find, but battery life has to be weighed against other considerations. A great battery life means nothing if your hoverboard only has a top speed of 5 MPH. Choose a battery life that makes sense for your lifestyle. If you ride only around your neighborhood, a battery life of only 2 hours might be fine paired with a short or medium range. But if you ride longer distances, you want a good battery life with a long range and short charging times.

Quality Construction Means That Your Hoverboard Will Last

Hoverboards are vehicles and any vehicle that you buy should be made with quality. You want a tough and rugged frame that is also lightweight. The lighter your hoverboard is, the better it will perform. It will also help your battery life, since it is less strain on the motor and generally helps with speed.

How Far Do You Intend to Travel

Range is one of the most important things to look for when buying a hoverboard. How far you travel determines how much of the battery’s charge you will use up. If you travel far, you want a longer range. You also want to make sure that charging times work with your lifestyle. You don’t want to arrive at your destination with a used up battery, only to find out that it takes 8 hours to charge, when you will be ready to go in 4. For instance, our #1 pick is the fastest hoverboard that you can buy, but it has a terrible range of only 4 miles. In general, look for long range along with short charge times. If you are staying close to home, range is less of an issue.

Mistakes to avoid

Features like speed can be very attractive to hoverboard buyers, but don’t just choose the fastest model and hope that everything else will be perfect. Look at all of the features and think about how you will use your hoverboard in your daily life. What features do you need? Which can you live without?

Another pitfall to avoid is thinking that you need a hoverboard with all of the most powerful features. If you don’t ride at night, you don’t need LED lights.

You won’t need a bluetooth speaker if you don’t want to listen to music. Chances are that you don’t need every feature to be over the top, and by shopping carefully for exactly what you do need, you will save a lot of money.

Some Questions To Ask Yourself When Shopping for the Fastest Hoverboards

Where will you use your hoverboard?

If you intend to stay on the street, most hoverboards provide a smooth ride regardless of the size of the wheels, but if you want to take it off the beaten path and on different terrain, you’ll want a model that’s made for all-terrain riding. That’s when it becomes important to look at things like wheel size, water resistance and extra power to get through muddy or grassy terrain. Larger wheels will help to traverse more diverse terrain.

How fast does a hoverboard go?

You can expect to find speeds that range from 6-15 MPH on most hoverboards. Most users find speeds of 10-12 to be the most comfortable and give them the best ride. One day we may even be able to buy a 20 MPH hoverboard, but not yet. Choose the speed that suits your needs. Most people don’t need the fastest model. Always look at how powerful the motor is as well. A good motor often equals good speed.
