This is my first hoverboard I’ve owned (or ridden for that matter) and it did not disappoint! It took some practice in the beginning but soon I found out the important thing for me personally was to ensure that you keep something (and or someone aka my partner & spotter!) as I was first stepping onto it and starting. Once I obtained the hang of it, it absolutely was hard to get me off of it! I’m still having a blast with the tech packed into this machine including but not limited by the bluetooth speakers and smartphone app. My only problem now’s I will likely have to get a different one since my “spotter” has more or less taken it as her own. I would recommend the T580 to anyone buying a durable, sturdy and tech savvy hoverboard!
