Hoverboards have become a popular toy around the world, suitable for adults, teenagers and children. For many parents, it's the perfect Christmas gift. When you buy a hoverboard for children, you should pay attention to its maximum speed, the speed of the children's hoverboard should not be too high. Do you know how fast does a hoverboard go?

What is the top speed of a hoverboard?

The average top speed of hoverboards on the market is about 6 to 8 mph. But some off-road all terrain models with bigger tires(8.5”, 10”) and bigger motor (350W, 500W) tend to be faster, with top speeds in excess of 10 mph, and some can reach 12 mph.

Is 12 mph fast for a hoverboard?

Yes, hoverboard speed 12 mph is fast compared to the 6-8 mph of a typical hoverboard. In addition, people's positioning of the hoverboard is a toy. Most of the riders are children and minors. Too fast speed will be unsafe and easy to cause accidental injury.

How fast can a hover 1 hoverboard go?

The Hover-1 hoverboard has a maximum speed of 9 mph, but most models have a maximum speed of 7 mph.

Is a hoverboard faster than walking?

Yes. The average human walking speed is 3-4mph, while the speed of the hoverboard is at least 6mph (except for children's mode). So riding a hoverboard is faster than walking.

What brand has the fastest hoverboard?

Currently the fastest hoverboard in the world is the Gyroor F1. The hoverboard has a top speed of 10 mph and can travel 10 miles on a single charge. But according to some hoverboard third-party reviews, it can reach a maximum speed of 12mph.

How long do hoverboards last?

The hoverboard usually last time for each charge is 1-4 hours, depending on the brand and model.Also, rider weight, maximum speed while riding, terrain, etc. will all affect usage time.

There is no certainty about how long the hoverboard itself will last. As long as the battery is still working, you can use it all the time. In addition, even if the battery is broken, as long as there is no problem elsewhere, you can replace it with a new one and continue to use it.

Can hoverboards go uphill?

Yes, the hoverboard can be ride uphills. There is a tilt assist system in the hoverboard to help you climb slopes without extra effort. However, the climbing ability of the hoverboard is not particularly strong. The general climbing is 10°, and only those off-road designed hoverboards can climb up to 15°.

Please note that control the speed of the hoverboard when going downhill to prevent accidents.

What affects the max speed of a hoverboard?

The main factors that affect the maximum speed of the hoverboard are the motor, battery, tires, terrain, and rider weight.

Hoverboard motor

The motor provides power to the hoverboard, thereby driving the hoverboard forward and backward. The more powerful the motor, the more torque it can provide, and the faster the hoverboard can go. The motor of the general hoverboard is 250W, but the motor of some off-road hoverboards is 350W or even 500W.

Hoverboard battery

We all know that the motor works by consuming the power in the battery, but as the battery power decreases, the voltage will decrease, and the output power of the power supply will decrease, resulting in a decrease in the motor output torque and speed.

Hoverboard tires

The tire size of the hoverboard is 6.5", 8.5" and 10". In the case of sufficient motor torque, the larger the tire size, the faster the driving speed.


Terrain has a great influence on the speed of the hoverboard. The most common is that the speed is generally faster when going downhill than uphill. Driving on flat surfaces is faster than on rough surfaces.

Rider Weight

Every hoverboard is designed with a maximum load, and the heavier the rider, the slower the hoverboard can achieve. Also, if the rider weighs more than the maximum load, there is a risk of damage to the hoverboard.

How to choose the top speed of hoverboard?

Even if you are a hoverboard master, you may be in danger while riding, so it is very necessary to wear a helmet and other protective gear while riding. In addition, the top speed selection of the hoverboard is also very important.

Hoverboards are designed for ages 6+, so for kids aged 6-12, the maximum speed of the hoverboard should not exceed 8mph (many hoverboards now have kid or beginner modes that don't exceed 6mph). You can choose our Gyroor G11 hoverboard.
