Before we begin describing each model, we want to answer some of your most common questions. many customers are unsure about which size wheel they require. Others may be unsure as to whether they’re too heavy for a Hoverboard. Many of our customers often ask whether it is legal to ride a Hoverboard on the street and where it would be possible to enjoy riding their Swegways. In the next heading, we’ll help you by answering some of these common questions.
What size Hoverboard wheel do I need?
The Size of the Hoverboard Wheel depends on the type of terrain you intend to use the Hoverboard in. There are usually a variety of wheel sizes to choose between: 6.5″, 8.5″ and 10″. Some Hoverboard companies ignore the .5 inch variable and simply mention that they’re 6 inch, 8 inch and 10 inch. The truth of the matter is that these sizes are all the same. In fact, it is extremely rare that Hoverboard wheels are different from one seller to another. If you happen to come across a Hoverboard that offers a totally different sized wheel, then you need to think about the difficulty you may bump in to when attempting to source a replacement wheel.
Hoverboard wheel sizes
The 6.5 inch Hoverboard is the most common Swegway for sale. As the best seller, this wheel size has been in circulation since the establishment of the Hoverboard. Naturally, the 6 inch Hoverboard is one of the most affordable amongst the Hoverboard range. The 6 inch wheel size Hoverboard is a solid tyre and is very durable. The only downside to this wheel size is that it often provides very low ground clearance and will no doubt scuff the underside of the Hoverboard if used outdoor.
The 8 inch Hoverboard for sale is the second most common Swegway. Just as popular, these Hoverboard are also solid tyres and offer the best durability. The Off Road Hoverboards for sale often come in the wide 8.5″ wheel size. Thanks to the larger wheel size, it offers greater ground clearance and can be used on more competitive terrain.
As for the larger 10″ Hoverboards, these come much larger than their predecessors. The 10 inch wheels are often inflatable air tyres. Inflatable tyres are naturally at risk of having punctures. However, this wheel size offers a more smooth rider experience whatever the terrain.
How heavy do I need to be to ride Hoverboards?
Many customers ask us how heavy they need to be to ride a Hoverboard. Others ask us if they are too heavy. The truth is, it depends on the Hoverboard itself. Globally, most Hoverboards have a maximum load of 120kg. The Chassis of the Hoverboard is a forged metal material which can withstand a weight of up to 100-120kg. However, riders must still be cautious about the way they distribute their weight. Riders of all weight divisions must be careful not to apply their weight in the centre of the Hoverboard. Hoverboards are designed in such a way that weight must only be distributed on the two footpad areas of the Swegway. Failure to do this could result in your Hoverboard chassis snapping in half.
As for the minimum weight, this is a more complex issue. The larger the Hoverboard, the heavier the user must be in order to activate the gyroscopes. This is why some lighter users experience judder or shaking of the Hoverboard when riding their Swegway. This judder or shaking happens when the gyroscopes are not fully compressed and the infra-red within the PCB toggles between on and off.
In a nutshell, this is our recommended weight per board:
- 6.5″ Hoverboards: 25kg – 100kg
- 8.5″ Hoverboards: 40kg – 120kg
- 10″ Hoverboards: 45kg – 120kg
What if you don’t meet the minimum weight requirement for any of the above Hoverboards? not to fear! HOVERBOARD-PRO have you covered. Thanks to our 2018 Hoverboard technology, our Phoenix Hoverboards for sale as well as our Megatron Off-Road 8.5″ Hoverboards have their very own self-levelling technology!
Due to the Self-Levelling technology on either of those models, all users are now capable of enjoying a Swegway regardless of the riders minimum weight. Just another reason why we have the Best Hoverboards UK!
Is riding a Hoverboard illegal?
Many customers often ask us if it is illegal to ride their Hoverboard in the UK. The Law in the UK states that all motorised personal transportation devices are only legal if they are registered, taxed and insured. of course, since it is not possible for Hoverboards to be registered and taxed with the DVLA, it still remains illegal to ride them on public roads and pavements in the UK.
Having said this, Hoverboards remain a fantastic source of fun for you and the family. You can still enjoy riding your Hoverboard or Swegway in private land. This includes your home, garden and private parks.
