What is the Best Hoverboard for Adults?

Why should kids have all the fun? Adults have been looking to get in on the hoverboard action for years. And with the upcoming “Hoverboard Renaissance,” there’s plenty of opportunities for grown men and women to get in on that action. After all, there’s a variety and abundance of options now available. Riders naturally gravitate to the hoverboard that best matches their fav riding style and unique tastes. But that doesn’t stop one question from popping up: Which adult hoverboard beats them all? Which one, from the many options out there, takes the bragging rights?

Best Hoverboard for Adults

When deciding on the best adult hoverboard, certain factors play a crucial role in crafting the riding experience. These include: 

  • Range 
  • Speed
  • Comfort 
  • Price
  • Portability

Swagtron® T6 Off-Road Hoverboard

One of the best hoverboard for adults is the Swagtron T6. It earns the #1 spot for the sheer number of boxes it ticks:

  • 10” wheels
  • 420 lb. rider limit
  • All-terrain, air-filed tires
  • Bluetooth

And it does this at a surprising price point. The T6 delivers speed, range and ruggedness that fears no urban terrain. Its sturdy build and serious aesthetic hints that it can easily go off-road, and this hoverboard makes use of the allowance it gets from its meant-for-business design to give the rider’s feet extra comfort space.

The speed alone will make you the envy of all the other “big kids” on the block, as the T6 is able to reach 11.9 mph. Combining that top speed with a 120-minute range opens up possibilities beyond more than just riding around for fun. Visiting friends blocks away and lengthy rides around town are all entirely possible — and very tempting. “Sure, hon, I’ll pick up something at the grocery store.”

It’s no wonder that the T6 continues to top “Best Of” lists, from Hover Patrol to Closeup Check. Sometimes, bigger truly is better.

Other Great Adult Hoverboard Options

Impressive as it is, the Swagtron T6 is not without competition. It may offer the most balanced package, but there are models that match it in some ways and offer their own fetching combination of features. 


The Duro T8 packs a value at such an affordable price, in the $130 to $160 range. Its 200W dual motorized wheels pair with SentryShield protection to offer enhanced stability. While that may knock the maneuverability down slightly, beginners who are not as sure-footed can get an added sense of support. 

At a speed of 7 mph, the Duro T8 can certainly satisfy the average rider’s sense of speed. Zooming past a puddle at that speed is no issue either with the semi-waterproof construction.

Another contender for incredible value at high affordability, the Vibe T580 sells for between $190 and $210.  Its most prominent standout feature, built-in Bluetooth speakers, offers various ways to add to the riding experience. Exercising while high-energy music plays always helps break a good sweat, and a slow crawl around the neighborhood or park with a podcast in the background can be relaxing. 

The top speed of 7.5 mph is capable of generating quite a rush, and not many models within its price range are able to match that speed. Average or balanced riding will allow for a range of 8 miles, which makes this hoverboard fit for purposes other than just mindlessly riding around.

The swagBOARD T380 Elite finds its place on this list by virtue of its range that falls between 7 and 12 miles. What you get out of that depends on how much you take advantage of its 8 mph speed. 

Its various modes make it beginner-friendly, allowing those not so well-versed in riding hoverboards to learn their way up to using the advanced mode where the more skill-demanding features can be accessed. Switching between the modes is done easily through the app. At the advanced mode, increased maneuverability creates opportunities to pull off swift turns or negotiate tight and winding spaces.

The weight, at just 22.5 Ibs, makes for easy carrying. This gives the T380 Elite extra appeal to those who want an adult hoverboard they can easily lift off the ground between rides. So much so, that it’s routinely sold out. (Don’t worry, though. There are some recertified models available.)


The swagBOARD T1 PRO, with its 300-watt motor and 8 mph top speed, certainly deserves to be in the conversation about the best adult hoverboards. At a full charge, it’s capable of covering a distance of up to 11 miles, making it a viable option for running errands and other practical uses beyond just the fun element. 

One of its best features is that it can handle varied terrains and inclines, managing to stay upright even on 30-degree slopes. Should the T1 Pro run out of power as you ride, it brakes just before it totally shuts down, letting you come to a gradual stop.

Varied riding modes make the T1 Pro a good fit for beginners and advanced riders alike, giving those new to hoverboards the chance to familiarize themselves with the core mechanics before switching to higher modes and speeds. The price, ranging from $230 to $260, means you get plenty of your money with the T1 Pro. 

While trying to decide which adult hoverboard packs the most features and value will always raise some debate, there’s no question that the options available for you to choose from can introduce fun and efficiency to the way you travel. Look through the models on offer, and pick one to get you moving in a whole new way.
