    Meant for a fun ride just about anywhere

    I’ve always liked to be on the move. I love taking walks around our neighborhood, riding my bike to a local park, and I’ve even done my fair share of skateboarding. With that in mind, I think it’s only natural that I felt drawn to the hoverboard craze that blew up a few years ago (no pun intended). When I first saw people riding them on TV I thought, “I could do that.” It was only recently that I got to try out that theory when visiting some friends on a family vacation. My friend Ava had a hoverboard and she was nice enough to let me try it. It was a blast and I decided to find my own. After some research, I decided on the Horizon App-enabled Bluetooth Hoverboard by Hover-1. The Hover Board is an amazing product. It is meant for fun almost anywhere. I’ve personally ridden mine inside our house, outside in Florida, on tile, and on regular old concrete. I think the 8” wheels really make a big difference when it comes to how smooth of a ride you get with the hoverboard. I’ve not had any issues with the wheels getting stuck somewhere or caught up on a foreign object. That said, you should always be aware of your surroundings. One of the biggest things I’ve learned since I’ve had the hoverboard is patience. For example, it takes time and effort to balance and learn how to move properly to get the most of out of your hoverboard experience. That takes patience. The hoverboard is heavy to pick up and move from place to place. It weighs 24.5 pounds. The packaging for it was great. It was completely stable so that nothing was broken inside. I even transported it on a 900-mile road trip inside its original box. When you take the hoverboard out of its box, it literally shines. My first experience with the Horizon hoverboard was tricky but I soon got a hold of it. The first time I got onto the hoverboard I drove right into something. Even though I had a small set back, I got right back on it and tried again. My favorite thing about the hoverboard is the getting on part. It takes absolute skill to balance and shift your weight to stay on top. The app is a nice addition to the hoverboard. It’s available for download for free and it allows you to customize your experience with the Horizon by letting you do things like changing the color of light on the back of the hoverboard. You can also monitor your speed and change modes between Beginner, Intermediate, or Expert. You even have the option to change your vehicle’s name. The Horizon hoverboard drives smoothly and looks great. It’s moderately priced in comparison with other hoverboards, but I think it makes sense to spend a little more and get a good, quality product this hoverboard. I can recommend this for any level of users. Beginners will be able to learn easily with it and more advanced riders can start strong and do tricks with it right out of the box. I’m very happy with my Horizon hoverboard and if I had the choice, I would get it all over again.

    I cannot even express all of my frustrations. If you would have asked me 2 months ago I would have told you this was great. Today though it decided to stop working and not just stop working, it is screaming at us and I can't get it to stop! Hover-1's website is so difficult to navigate as well. Couldn't find a phone number through it or by calling Best Buy. Finally found where I can submit a ticket. If they help us I will change my review but for now..

    Ok, so this is my families third product from Hover-1 and this one doesn't disappoint. My son absolutely loves the built in bluetooth speaker and the increased speed over the model his brother rides. I did ride this model extensively and feel it is a little less responsive or refined than the previous Hover-1 but I really don't think most people would notice unless you road both models. Speed, design, lighting (yes you can change colors with the app on the board) this unit has it all. I strongly recommend.

    We had a basic hoverboard by the same company -Hover 1- and really liked it, but I gave it to my sister and her kids. This one isn't that much more expensive but has the built in bluetooth speaker and it sounds pretty good. I didn't know how much I'd use the speaker, but I find myself connecting to it every time now. It handles really well and I really like the headlights on it. I took it out when the sun was setting and it was nice to have a little extra light.

    Awesome Hoverboard

    We have a few of these hoverboards… The first one we got (HY-H1) looks a little rough now — my boys run it into walls and things at full speed all the time. That said, it still runs great and they still ride it every day. Pretty amazing product. This one is pretty similar with different lights and bigger wheels. It’s fast, the lights on this one are better, it has a great Bluetooth speaker and it’s an equally good hoverboard to learn on.

    I had a different hoverboard which Was what I thought so cool Ul2272 self balancing HB It was a good board. For a beginner. So I then bought this one and WOW Such a difference. Especially the 8” wheels being higher and less likely to hit small things in road or where you ride it. The sound and the lighting one this Hoverboard H1-2 is crazy bright and overall an excellent board

    Bought this for my daughter to ride around the park and around the neighborhood. This device keeps a long charge which is awesome since it's can go roughly 8 miles while supporting her weight (74lbs). She crashed it a few times trying to learn her balance on it, but this hoverboard is built sturdy tough so no real damage taken.

    This is my kid’s favorite hoverboard. The 8” wheels make it great to ride, especially over uneven ground. The sleek design with the cool lighting on both sides really makes it look totally awesome. It handles well and has a smooth, fast and quiet ride. It goes over bumps with no problems. All the kids in the neighborhood want to ride it. The speaker sounds great. It feels incredibly tough & durable.

    We wanted a safe and reliable hover board for our 9 year old. She absolutely loves this, especially how easy it is to ride and the changing colors feature. It’s quiet and so far 100% reliable. It has larger wheels making it more stable and a mobile app that lets you adjust how sensitive the board is. We have it set to easy mode and it really helps make it easy for smaller kids to ride.

    Had it for a couple weeks now and after the kids watched a YouTube instructional video they are really enjoying it. Not to mention that everyone that comes over can’t wait to try it. The Bluetooth compatible built in speaker is also a plus. Kids range from 9-13 and this gets them away from playing fortnite all day. Only problem is that now all 3 kids want one of their own.

    This Hoverboard has larger wheels and goes a little slower than some other Hoverboards but is still a fun ride. It has headlights that change colors but is a sleek black. It states it's for a 15+ from an age perspective but our much younger children enjoy using it. We haven't used the app yet but think that would be a cool addition for the kids but not necessary to be able to ride.

    The website states to go to the "service center" at hover-1.com. GOOD LUCK. I am website savvy and could not locate any way to contact this company. Purchased this product and 2 days later the frame cracked with a 7 year old riding it. Returned it and got another one. Two weeks later the battery charger is broke. Such a joke! Now I cant find a way to contact them.

    Got this one because it held more weight. (225 vs 180). The stickers were already ripped off the box. Didn’t read the labels until after I bought it saying no returns once labels are ripped. Strange they would willingly sell like this without warning me. Thankfully it works fine. My daughter has been having a lot of fun with it so I can’t complain.

    What a cool hover board! I love the multi-colored lights and larger wheels. The board feels stable but has all the maneuverability that you want in a hover board. My 12-year old son enjoys doing “tricks” and spins. We own the H1 hover board with smaller wheels and this one is even more fun! Would recommend to anyone looking for a sturdy, quality hover board!

    My 6 year old daughter and 9 year old son think this is the best thing ever. They both caught on with no problems and have been riding it like professionals ever since. Great board for all ages. Of course the blue tooth added a whole other level---When the music came on, they were head over heels sold.

    At first it was tough to get the hang of. Getting started and just getting used to the controls was a little bit of a learning curve but that is probably just the nature of a hoverboard. Overall, super convenient to get to a from class and I even ride it around my apartment and use it to take out the trash. Would definitely recommend.

    It is GREAT! I was nervous to purchase a hover board thinking that my 10 year old wasn't ready. She is a natural and it was TOO easy for her! It has multiple levels from to beginners to advanced. U can download an app that allows access to track where U go and the speed. Speakers work great also!

    This HOVER-1 has been AMAZING!!! It was a Birthday present for my son who had never been on a hoverboard. He learned In As little as 2 days. Best Buy also delivered it early which was great bc I had time to wrap it before I gave it to him.

    I bought this for my 10 year old. She had been on the neighbors hover board so she was used to riding them. She said that it’s harder to balance on this one than her sisters’. So I would recommend to older kids. She loves it! And I’m just glad it gets her off technology.

    This is such a cool hoverboard! The wi fi feature was an added bonus for this item. My son learned to master this vehicle in an hour. His friends rallied around him and his skills and worked on improving, using his hoverboard. I think any kid 20- 15 would love this hoverboard.
