Accelerating your hoverboard and reaching for the horizon is every hoverboard enthusiast's passion. Whether it's your brand new Aventador or your highly anticipated swagtron, you always want to go fast at the maximum possible speed.

We already have some of the best hoverboards reviewed, but here I want to focus specifically on speed.

A fast hoverboard is all you need. However, the question here is how fast a hoverboard goes? Could it go faster than your metal-sculpted bicycle or your dad's scooter? Or can it exceed the speed of your neighbor's old motorcycle?

In this article, we will analyze closely and have a deeper understanding of the speed variations of different hoverboards, the maximum speed and the factors that depend on it, and so on.

Fastest hoverboard on the Dutch market

Then I immediately dive into it before I go into some more general characteristics and the average speed of most Hoverboards.

You have landed on this article to read about the fastest on the Dutch market.

Fastest Hoverboard: Ninetec Sonic X6

This Hoverboard from Ninetec is certainly the fastest and can no less than 20 km / h where most go about 10 and some max 15 km / h.

With the advent of newer brands and classes of hoverboards, the need arose for a miraculous whooshing hoverboard. This need led to the birth of the so-called Sonic X6 hoverboard.

Known worldwide for its speed and world-class futuristic styles, this board is crafted with high tech batteries and motors good for its courteous maximum speed of 20km / h.

While this Hoverboard is a great gadget for the speed demons, it's worth mentioning that it's safe too. If you increase the speed above the defined speed limit, the LED will automatically illuminate to indicate that you have passed the speed limit line.

You control the NINETEC Sonic X6 Hoverboard by using gravity or with your phone via an app that you can install.

The turning circle is very small (you can turn on your own axis) which means it can be used in a very tight space. You can also stand still and even make a 360 degree turn in one place.

The two wheels are powered by two electric motors, which are powered by a strong Samsung Lithium battery 4400mAh.

In this video you can see what you can do with the board and the app:


Because the NINETEC Sonic X6 Hoverboard seeks its own balance, it is very easy to use. It moves forward simply by leaning forward slightly. And backward by leaning back.

It's smart and sexy in the way it's structured. When you talk about speed, it will never let you down. The architecture is beautiful, the speed is great! What else?

You can drive at great speeds even on hilly and rough terrain and uneven paths. It is durable and can withstand a lot, be it drastic water flow or the stormy wind. The lightweight property also adds a positive point to the scooter.

So if you are overly happy and fascinated to hit the highest of all speed limits and are ready to do so too, this one is for you. Due to the robust material it is made of, it is durable and interestingly lightweight.

Is speed important in a Hoverboard?

Now you may be wondering why we are dealing with the speed factor anyway. Well, there is no doubt that the pace we live in is getting faster and faster.

We want to be able to get from A to B quickly, but we also want some speed and excitement in our sports. And with a board that can go that fast, it is certainly a sport. A hoverboard is also an extreme sport if you do it right, just like a stunt scooter is.

How fast can a Hoverboard average?

For those who crave the fastest hoverboard ever, buckle up tight as you'll learn about it in this article. The speed of the hoverboard normally ranges from 5 or 8 km / h to 20 km / h and even more.

However, the average speed is assumed to be 9,5 kilometers per hour. The phenomenal speeds of electric scooters have made them more efficient and trendy in the market as well as driving the techies crazy.

The factors that determine the speed of a Hoverboard

Aside from the LEDs, speakers, durable exteriors and rubber shields, speed is one of the most sought after features when it comes to hoverboard selection.

There are several factors that indicate the strength of the hoverboard and how fast it can go. Important parameters are the size of the wheel, the brand it comes from, the quality of the battery, the power of the electric motor and the design.

The weight factor is also included in the determination of the speed. The weight of the rider has a big influence on the speed of the board, but the board itself cannot do much about that.

Aside from the factors mentioned above, the speed of your hoverboard will also vary in the mode you are using it in.

For example, if you use it in beginner mode, it will of course have a slower speed than normal mode. As in standard mode, the speed is medium.

It has been observed that the speed controllers also play a vital role in speed determination. The way you hold and shift your weight appropriately guides you to higher speeds.

Again, the surface your hoverboard rides on determines the maximum speed it can get. If the surface is hilly or rough terrain, it will give a lower maximum speed than in the case of the smooth surface riding in from a hoverboard.

Why that speed?

Not just for fun, but people crave speed to meet other needs as well. For example, you have to urgently run to the pharmacy to get your grandmother's medicine or tell you to return the handbag of the lady who left it at your store, etc.
