As part of the How Fast Are Hoverboards FAQ, a close-up picture of someone on a hoverboard was taken.

Hoverboards are a simple and fun way to get around. A simple lean forward will get you moving. With some practice and balance, you’ll be done. When there is a new gadget out there, some people just jump on it and run like Wile E. Coyote without giving it a thought. Other people often ask themselves, “How fast does this thing really go?” and “How can I slow it down?”

How fast can you go on a hoverboard? It can go from 6 to 13 miles per hour!

There are a lot of things that affect how quickly a hoverboard moves. Also, the size and power of the hoverboard’s tires and engine are taken into account. The rider’s weight is also taken into account. All of these things help you reach your top speed. The typical hoverboard can reach speeds of six to eight miles per hour when it is at its best. All-terrain models that have bigger tires and more powerful engines are usually faster on dirt and gravel roads. They can reach speeds of more than 10 miles per hour on these types of roads. Our Swagboard T6 Outlaw, for example, is one of the fastest on the market. It can reach speeds of up to thirteen miles per hour at its best.

First, learn how to walk.

As a cliché, this is still true. Most likely, getting on a hoverboard for the first time and going off at full speed will be more humiliating and unpleasant than it will be exciting and fun.


Because some self-balancing boards, like our Swagboard T1 Pro Hover Board, have learning modes that limit the board’s speed while making it more responsive, it is possible to learn how to use them. As a new rider, this will help you get a sense of your style before you speed off at full power on your first trip. A learning mode lets you try out balance, hoverboard control, and other general moves to avoid accidentally taking off at full speed and landing on your back in the street.

Speed on a hoverboard is very important.

There are different modes for different models. You must learn the basics before you can go from basic to standard and then to advanced (see below). The speed at which your hoverboard moves will depend on the kind and model of board you have, as well as the type of surface you ride it on.

In general, a self-balancing board can go up to six or eight miles per hour at its fastest. It is possible for all-terrain boards to reach speeds of up to thirteen kilometers per hour. Speeds like this can’t be achieved on every surface or in every situation.

• Going up a hill will make you slow down.

• Most of the time, you won’t be able to reach your top speed on grass, gravel, or other similar surfaces.

• Even though going down a hill or slope can make you faster, it can also make you more likely to get hurt, so be careful.

On a clean, dry, level, and smooth stretch of road, you should push your hoverboard to its top speed.

The best way to use a Hover Board

People who have been riding hoverboards for a long time will tell you that it is very important to take your own safety very seriously while riding your hoverboard. It’s very common for a skateboard or snowboard to break, or even worse, for a person to get hurt when they don’t follow safety rules. Even though hoverboards can be used in public places, many states have rules that say they can’t be used in public places. If you don’t follow these rules, you could get in trouble with the law.

• Make sure you always wear a helmet and other safety gear.

If you want to use a hoverboard in bad weather, don’t do it.

• Do not walk on ground that is broken or uneven.

In order to keep your balance, you need time and experience. That’s why you were told to start slowly in the previous paragraph.

• All in the lean – Controlling the hoverboard with your core rather than your head or upper body will make the ride more comfortable and fun.

• When riding your hoverboard in a busy place, be careful and use common sense. Because you can ride at high speeds, that doesn’t mean you should ride at high speeds everywhere you go.


We’ll admit it: going fast is exciting, but we don’t like it. The speed of this “magic” mobility device isn’t the only thing it has going for it. Before you decide how fast to go, think about all of the factors, like your age, rider weight, the surroundings, your skill level, and what makes you feel safest. Make sure that you think about safety first before you think about all of the other great features and colors that are there.

Make sure you know what the rules are in your city and state about hoverboards in public places.

There are now laws in place that say that hoverboards can’t be used in public places by people under the age of 18. This is because hoverboards became popular in 2015, when they were first widely available. The rules are very different from state to state and, in some cases, even from city to city. In California, for example, people who want to ride hoverboards must be at least 16 years old.

They are still in the early stages of development. And the rules that govern them are still being worked out, too. If you live in a state or a city, the government is still trying to figure out how to classify hoverboards, which is hard. In the end, the classification of the hoverboard will decide whether or not it should be controlled by existing laws or if new rules need to be put in place to make it safe. It’s best to make sure you know the rules in your area so that you can figure out what is and isn’t allowed for public use before you start. Speed is just as important as the answer to the previous question.
