    Fun Ride!

    My elementary aged son has been primarily using the Hoverboard and he loves it! He picked up how to use it in record time! He thinks it's fun that it plays music (it's bluetooth paired to my phone) and scoots all over the place. The sound for the music element is decent; could be more clear but my guess is due to the need to be durable some of that quality is compromised--works for the purpose intended though. It's water resistant so we don't have to worry about it being outside during moderate weather. It is physically heavy so when he's changing locations we do move it for him. The app is nice because I can control the level (for us we like it on beginner!) and can customize the lights to for something fun for our son! Because the device can be dangerous if not used properly, it isn't something we will be letting the neighborhood kids just try but it's fun for our own personal use.

    Fun once you get the hang of it

    I got this one because it is designed to hold heavier riders, like me. I spent two weeks on Beginner then moved up to Intermediate. I'm staying there for now. The board is more sensitive to movements on that level, so I'm less stable in that mode. The only reason I'm giving it 4 of 5 stars is that the battery life seems to be a bit shorter (and therefore less distance) than advertised. I don't use the lights or bluetooth speakers much, so that shouldn't be a factor. I'm still about 50lb less than the max payload, so I'm not sure exactly where they got their numbers from. I get about 1 mile or so before the battery is just about dead. The app is fun. I like the ability to change the headlight colors (or have them off). The board will turn on "brake" lights weather or not you have the lights set on. I actually like that. I wish there wouldn't be super loud "bing" every time I make even a slight change to the color. I can't see how to turn that "bing" off or just turn it down. That loud "bing" also plays when you turn it on, again, too loudly. Not major, but a bit of an annoyance. The ride is pretty smooth, but I feel every crack in the sidewalk for sure. The overall build quality seems good and sturdy. I don't feel like I'd break this even if I was over the max payload by a few pounds. For the price, this is the best value I've seen.

    When pulling the Hover 1 from the box we first noticed how solid and well-built it was. It came charged for immediate use, along with easy to follow instructions for proper care. The sleek black /grey color combination and chrome wheels made it feel sporty and edgy. Before riding the Hover 1 we downloaded the app which was very easy to learn and navigate. The led graphics and blue tooth speakers are entertaining and eye catching, a definite must for all hover boards. Riding for the first time we noticed how much more smooth and quiet it was compared to other hover boards. The alerts for low battery and fully charged battery make for safe and simple operation for all ages. The overall experience with Hover 1 has been constant fun and entertainment. If there was one drawback it would be that battery drains quickly with all the Hover 1 options being utilized at once. Thanks to our friends that recommended the Hover 1.

    The HYPE Hover-1 is a very solid, high performing hover board. It is ready to go right out of the box and the Hover-1 app gives you additional information such as speed and allows you to toggle among the three skill modes: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. It took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to fully balance on the scooter before I moved up from Beginner to Intermediate and still haven't made it to Advanced - there really is no need for me to go there. But my 11-year old was on Advanced in no time, spinning circles in the drive way and leaning back and forth like a pro. The weight of the board makes it feel like a sturdy product and we haven't had any issues with battery life. The LED lights glow very bright at night and are a nice added feature. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to purchase a hover board.

    This is my first hoverboard I’ve owned (or ridden for that matter) and it did not disappoint! It took some practice at first but soon I figured out the key for me was to make sure to hold on to something (and or someone aka my wife & spotter!) as I was first stepping on it and starting. Once I got the hang of it, it was hard to get me off of it! I am still having a blast with all the tech packed into this machine including but not limited to the bluetooth speakers and smartphone app. My only problem now is I will probably have to buy another one since my “spotter” has pretty much taken it as her own. I would recommend the HOVER-1 to anyone looking for a durable, sturdy and tech savvy hoverboard!

    I bought this hoverboard for 300 thinking it would last me a long time its ride was very smooth and I liked the append bluetooth feature, then I broke the inner frame I guess from it getting hit it to many times, I had to pay 180 dollars to repair it and the only way to contact hover-1 was through email, which was extremely inconvenient, I got it back and it was a bit shaky but it was fixed. except for now the bluetooth speaker was not working and the battery and sensor lights were backward, I contacted them about it and they finally gave me a number to cal,l but I was not available at that time, and not long after the inner frame broke again. I still ride it broken because I'm not just going to throw away something that cost me 480 all together, but I am extremely disgruntled with this company and I suggest you buy from a different one.

    This thing is much better than I thought it would be. I weigh around 190 and it carries me no problem. Even up hills. The statistics are off though it said it was 15.8 in wide it is actually 23 in wide. My only real gripe is that the wheels stick out further than the bumpers and have a Sharp design it which will scratch up walls pretty good. Also since the wheels are so small the lean angle isn't as high as I would like it to be which makes it hit the bumpers often when leaning too far. For an expert Rider or off-roading I would recommend bigger wheels but around the house or office this is great

    But, It’s really smooth and easy. The iridescent color makes it stand out from every other hoverboard. Great handling. The lights on both sides make it look extra cool. It’s one of the easiest to quickly feel relaxed riding. It seems faster than other hoverboards. The low profile feels comfortable and it goes over bumps like they aren’t even there. Had some trouble with the initially connecting the speaker to my phone with Bluetooth. But, that may have been user error. Overall, as an adult, I like the lower profile. It makes me feel more comfortable riding and my kids think it looks totally awesome.

    As a first time user of a hoverboard-type scooter, I found the H-1 to be fairly easy to learn on. My 11-year old son felt the expert level suited him well while I felt more comfortable on the beginner level. The board is very inquisitive and in expert mode is quite sensitive. The speakers are a pretty awesome feature along with the lights....riding them at night is a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a quality scooter...these are worth every penny!

    Waited a few years to buy a hover board with hope that all issues with its technology and battery are perfected by now. Bought the hover 1 and the go cart accessory for my young teen to use for fun but also to help with rehab from a traumatic injury. Balance control, flexibility and coordination. Too early to tell but my hope is the Hover 1 holds up to its name, brand and marketing reviews. Safety always important so use common sense how, where and when to use the board.

    We love the colors of this Hoverboard! It's really a nice looking board. It also has the ability to go pick up good speed, which our kids love. It feels like a quality board. We paired the bluetooth music up to it and the sound is pretty good for being a protected speaker. The music makes it even more fun for the kids to "dance" around on it.

    We purchased this Hoverboard the week before Christmas. It is very intuitive and love the different levels which made it easier to learn on. Love the Blue tooth and speakers! It is a sweet ride! Only problem we had was that the charger stopped working. But Best Buy was great about accepting the return (even though I lost our receipt). They ordered a replacement and it was shipped to our door two days later. Best Buy folks couldn't have been nicer!

    We have a few of these hoverboards… The first one we got (HY-H1) Is pretty beat up, as the plastic is quite hard/brittle and my boys run it into walls at full speed all the time. That said, it still runs great and my boys still ride it every day. Pretty amazing product. This one is pretty much the same product with a cool iridescent paint job. It’s fast, has a great Bluetooth speaker and it’s a very good hoverboard to learn on.

    Works Great

    As a Hover board the HYPE Hover-1 preformed great. I myself have never used a hover board but this one was very easy to learn on. It had great control, with fun movement and speed to go along with that. The battery life is excellent, I’ve used it for two weeks now and have only had to charge it once. The Bluetooth speaker is a nice add on; however, the range is not great. If your phone is in your pocket though it will work fine. Overall I really enjoyed my experience with the HYPE Hover-1.

    The hover board arrived very fast. I am glad for the text message it had arrived. It was for my grandson’s birthday and he was visiting that weekend. I was able to retrieve it from the porch and hide it before he returned from his friends. It was a great buy. I loved the app and all the things it provides such as changing the lights, speed, battery life. He really loves riding it and it was beautiful the picture did not do it justice.

    The Cool Factor is High

    Posted
    erheneke

    As the Hovers go, this one is in the upper half with respect to how it functions, but added to this Hover is the 'cool factor.' The design, including lighting, make it a unique instrument as compared to the others, which almost seem boring by comparison. It has a similar type of balance and movement (a little spooky to a tall guy like me) with the added bells and whistles of Bluetooth and lighting. Overall, a nice toy!

    This hover board has not lasted the test of time. It broke within the first few days, we got it working again, but it quickly broke, stalls, skips around in a circle, and is not safe nor consistent for my daughter to ride . Need to return to company or Best Buy to fix or replace it. I do not want the same hover board again..
