Hover-1 Horizon App-enabled Bluetooth Hoverboard REVIEW


The Horizon hoverboard is one of several models that Hover-1 offers. I have the 8” Wheel model of the Horizon which is self-balancing and electric. The built-in rechargeable battery (36V, 4 Ah Lithium-ion) provides up to 2 hours of run time. This translates to roughly an 8.4-mile range. It does have a battery indicator at your feet, which is very easy to read even when you are riding it. The ‘bluetooth’ part of the product name relates to the built-in Bluetooth speaker which syncs with your phone for wireless music streaming. The hoverboard has LED headlights and brake lights for extra visibility at night.


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.


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.
