Can anyone ride a Hoverboard? This is dependent on the type of Hoverboards that you purchase. It also depends on whether or not you use a Hoverkart. In this article, we will highlight how anyone can ride a Hoverboard and what makes one rider more capable than the other.
Generally, Hoverboards have a minimum weight requirement. This weight is dependent on the Hoverboard model. Therefore, when customers are wondering which Hoverboard is best for their kids, we often ask them what their weight is. Here is a breakdown of the individual weigh requirements for each model:
- 6.5-inch Classic and Disco Hoverboards: 25kg
- 8.5-inch Hummer Hoverboards: 35kg
- 10-inch Mammoth Hoverboards: 45kg
Each of the above models requires a minimum weight in order for the gyroscopes to activate. Therefore, if users who weigh below the recommended weight attempt to use the Hoverboard then they may experience juddering and vibrating. This will surely cause the rider to lose balance, often knocking their confidence and diminish any enjoyment out of the Swegway.
So whilst anyone can ride a Hoverboard, it is important to identify which Hoverboard is more suitable. Having said this, some riders who weigh below the recommended weight are still able to enjoy the Hoverboard. How? you may ask. In this article, we will highlight other ways that riders who weigh below the recommended weight can still enjoy the Hoverboard.
