      Easy and fun cruising skateboard/longboard!

      This skateboard takes a lot of the effort out of skate boarding/long boarding. The cruise settings allow you to keep speed without having to push with your feet constantly. Cruising on mostly flat ground is what this board is meant for and it does this very very well. Would give five stars if cruising on flat ground was all I wanted to do. Pros: 1. Easily sets into one of the three gears for cruising. 2. Maintains speed well when going on flat ground or downhill. 3. Easy to activate brakes and they work well. 4. Smooth ride, good turn radius. 5. Handle on the side makes it easy to carry. 6. Can turn off motor and use as normal skateboard/longboard. 7. Change gears by simply lifting heel off sensor. 8. Maintains battery well when cruising. Cons: 1. Very sensitive sensor, slight movements of foot can cause unwanted change in gear or even brake activation. Takes getting used to change between gears but once figured out is simple. 2. If going downhill and brakes activate or you go from third to first gear by accident (which did happen with the sensitive sensor) I dangerously lurched forward off the board. - Personally would not recommend if you think you will be going downhill and having to brake at all or you can just use it as a normal longboard in these situations 3. Does not go uphill well. The manual says a 12 degree incline can be done but this isn't really even uphill in my book. Any attempt to go up a hill you will have to push kick at some point. 4. When push kicking uphill if your foot was on the sensor once you take it off to push kick the brakes activate. This again makes you lurch forward. Can't really push kick at anytime while motor is activated without brakes being activated. 5. Some kind of indicator of what gear the longboard is in would be very helpful. 6. The two modes labeled "Cruise mode" and "Brake mode", activated by button on motor, made no sense to me.

      Horrible toy

      Posted

      I purchased this product a month ago and the performance on it has been absolutely horrible and then it broke. Whats bad about it: 1. The sensor works too well and there should be a remote. Having a sensor on the board, while being an interesting idea should be just that. An idea and nothing more. Taking one foot off of a skateboard at any point feels dangerous even if you just put it right back down is simply bad design. The fact that you also have to take your foot completely off in braking mode is even more ridiculous. 2. The battery life and power of the motor is laughable and does not at all live up to what the company claims it is. Within the first week I owned this I took the board out to see how far it would go. I went on nice running trails that had little to no incline on them at all and the board lasted for about 4 miles. Which is less then half of what the advertised distance was of 9.3 miles. 3. I owned it for a month and it broke. The motor and touch sensir have simply stopped working and since it is past the Best Buy 15 day return policy I cannot return it and have to deal with Hover-1 themselves which leads into another problem. 4. There is no good way to contact Hover-1 and their website is a joke. There is no phone number that I could find for Hover-1 even in the instruction manuals that came with the board. I really do wish I could give this product a good review it was fun to ride in the MONTH that it still worked but because it broke, didn't go as far or as fast as the company promised, and has a bad design overall I can't.

      After a few tries, I was up and running!

      I've had the Hover-1 - Cruze Electric Skateboard for a few weeks now and am loving it!  Even with only minimal experience on a normal skateboard, after a few tries on this I was up and running! There is no remote like other electric skateboards include because the Hover-1 Cruze's uses a simple cruise control system. It was pretty easy to master and I ended up happy that there wasn't a remote that might take my eyes away from the road and or any rocks or bumps I might have not seen if I was looking down at my phone or a hand held control system.  I now use it to make short trips around my neighborhood vs jumping in my car and wasting gas. I never hit "top speeds" that the hover-1 board advertises (most likely because I am close to the top weight it says it will support) but have also never felt that it was sluggish or that I needed to go any faster. Overall a great electric board and worth the price considering how much money I will now save in gas on short trips around my neighborhood!

      Great way to get around campus

      This is the first experience that I have had riding an electric skateboard and I have been impressed with this board thus far. I have used it to go to class and to ride around campus. The board's design makes it easy to carry when you are not riding it and the long battery life is very convenient. Once you get started moving, it is very easy to control your speed. I was hesitant to purchase this product at first not knowing how much control the user has over the speed of the board but I am happy I decided to go with Hover-1 Cruze Electric Skateboard. After an initial 10 minutes of figuring out how the board worked, I felt comfortable riding it anywhere around campus. Overall I was very pleased with this purchase. This is an innovative way to get around campus that I can see being utilized more in the future.

      Cruze Electric Skateboard

      I've ridden skateboards for years and for the longest time I was skeptical of a motorized version at first. However, as soon as I got going on the Cruze I was hooked. It's all the fun of skateboarding without the work! It is a nice compact size and turning is pretty responsive, making it very convenient for getting to class when you have to go across campus. One drawback is that the foot-sensor control is a little hard to get used to at first. I found myself more focused on my feet than what was ahead of me and had a few close calls. However, now that I am used to the operation of the throttle riding the Cruze is a blast. Not sure I'll go back to my other board.

      I have rode longboards and skateboards in the past but nothing like this electric skateboard. I was impressed with the ease of use and how light it was. Most other electric skateboards/longboards are heavy and hard to carry. I use it mostly for riding around campus. The "gears" on the touch pad are somewhat difficult to get used to at first, but after some practice you figure out how to navigate the touchpad properly. Overall I was very satisfied with my purchase. Electric Skateboards/Longboards are becoming more and more popular, especially among young adults. I see them all around my college campus and this is by far one of the more affordable boards. Highly recommend this product!

      Great Electric Longboard

      Posted

      The Hover 1 Electric Skateboard is a great electric board that is affordable compared to other boards on the market. The foot pad makes it very easy to control your speed when you are riding. The board itself is high quality and is not much different than a normal longboard. I like the idea of not having a remote in your hand at all times; this allows you to be hands free when you are riding. I use this board to get around campus and it is perfect for this. The charge on this board is perfect for what I need along with the speed. I have not had any issues with this board and would buy again.

      Right out of the box, this skateboard is easy to enjoy. The first thing I read on the Hover box was that 'Safety is our priority'. The skateboard felt very safe and easy to maneuver. It rides much like a normal skateboard and gently adds power to the wheels when your rear foot is in a certain spot. It's very easy and fun to ride. I have no problems letting any of my kids or their friends try this out. The board is rigid but easy enough to steer by gently shifting your weight on your toes or heels to turn left or right. Highly recommend! Great product!!
