    Easy and fun cruising skateboard/longboard!

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Good board for quick jaunts

    Skateboard is a little small lenth wise. Top speed is about 11mph faster if you're lighter (I'm 170lbs). I have this in my trunk of car. Good to have just in case I had to go from office to store nearby and quicker than walking, but too close to drive to. Haven't drained the battery yet, for I haven't had far to go. If battery dies, it is small enought that you can use it manually like a regular skateboard. I attached a Powell Peralta tailbone guard so that way I don't grind the board on accident. Since the controls are on the board I want to make sure that I don't trash the board. You get use to using the pressure control with lifting your heal and returning it to the board to shift to next gear. When you are about to come to a light, or coming to a point where you want to stop, just move your rear foot to the tail area, off the red dot sensors and the board begins to slow down. So far I'm pretty satisfied with it.

    This is my second Cruze skateboard so obviously I like this little neighborhood cruiser. The first one I bought right there in BestBuy, and that was maybe about 18 months. I use it just about every day but the battery doesn't have too much longevity especially for the speeds I like to cruise. They last about an hour if you are about 170ibs going moderate speed. So I decided to get a second one to keep a backup and go further. This time I ordered from Bestbuy website and the second one came and seemed to have a different stalling type ride compared to the first. After three weeks of moderate riding, it stalled out completely. I can only say that it was not built like the one I purchased at first, which still works to this day and has been most reliable.

    Justvwhat we wanted

    This made for a great gift for our 9 year old son. It’s nice that it can be ridden just as a regular skateboard with the flexibility of using the electrical power. The only issue that we’ve encountered is the way to turn on the power isn’t necessarily easy. But nice you figure it out, it’s a piece of cake. Word to the wise, don’t forget knee and elbow pads and a helmet!

    Great way to get around campus

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Great Board

    The electric skateboard is a fun way to get around! It has a handle built into the board to carry and is light enough to easily transport. It was a little tough at first to get the hang of it (and the buzzing telling you're doing it wrong made my head spin a bit!) but once we got it down it was fun and a smooth ride! You definitely need the room to move on a street, open lot etc. to ensure you can use it to it's full ability!

    Cruze Electric Skateboard

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Fun - Not for the faint of heart :)

    I will admit that I wasn't a skateboarder growing up, so perhaps a bit of the allure is lost for me in this product. That being the case, it's still a fun gizmo to buzz around the neighborhood on. Similar to other types of electronic scooters built nowadays, it does take some time to learn, balance and operate. A new rider, unskilled in using this device, should expect and prepare to fall a couple of times while learning. The electric skateboard is very fun for the younger kids, probably more hazardous that it's worth for most of us adults! :)

    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!!

    This board was a gift for my 14 year old son. He was riding like an expert in an hour or less. It’s as fast as you’d want a board to be. Excellent battery life, lasts about four hours of riding, and my son frequently makes 3+ mile trips without running out. My husband has even taken it on a ride a few times. He’s 200lb, and the speed is still great. Battery seems like it runs out a little quicker with him though. We had it 2 weeks now and it’s riden several hours a day. No issues. Fantastic and fun product!!

    My son says he uses it to glide along and uses his "manual" skateboard for tricks and speed.

    The hover cruise electric board is a great electric longboard and is perfect for just about any riding. It is a very easy board to get used to riding. The controls for the speed is very easy and not hard to get used to controlling your speed. Overall great board and would recommend to anyone looking to get an electric skateboard.

    After a few tries, I was up and running!

    Posted .

    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!
