G wants a Hoverboard for Christmas so I have searched and researched Hoverboards this season. Here’s the lowest priced ones, the most decked out ones at a reasonable price, the highest weight limit ones at a reasonable price and the one I ended up purchasing.
If you’re shopping for a Hoverboard, you need to note that there are different weight limits on different ones. The cheapest ones typically come with a weight limit of around 170 lbs. I’m shopping for a teenager that’s already 150 lbs so I will be looking for the higher rated ones. You can find BOTH in this post.
Prices correct as of 11/25/2021.
Flash Wheel Hoverboard 6.5″ Bluetooth Speaker with LED Light Self Balancing Wheel Electric Scooter– $108.99 (down from $199.99) This was one of Walmart’s Early Black Friday deals a few weeks ago. It was $99.99 then. It may not drop back to that again.
There are multiple colors to choose from. Max weight on this one is 165lbs
This one isn’t as flashy as the one above and doesn’t have the bluetooth speaker but for a few extra bucks you can get a few extra pounds on the weight limit.
Hoverstar Hoverboard 6.5 In., Listed Two-Wheel Self Balancing Electric Scooter with LED Light – $116.00 (down from $179)
Max weight 180lbs.
This one was the most eye-catching. If “all-terrain” is a feature you’re looking for, then this one looks like your best option to stay within a reasonable price. Those are the most all-terrain-looking tires of any I’ve seen.
Hoverstar Hoverboard All-Terrain LED Flash with Bluetooth Speaker – $149.00 (down from $229)
This one seems to have it all – lights, bluetooth speaker, all-terrain tires, the largest markdown – but with a max weight of 165lbs, it wasn’t going to work for us.
Jetson Plasma Hoverboard – $128.00 (down from $148)
LED liquid light pattern flows through the deck and wheels while you ride. It comes equipped with all-terrain tires and an anti-slip grip mat, so you can show off your hoverboard skills and explore more of your world than ever before!
Max weight 220lbs – highest of any I’ve seen.
Jetson Magma Hoverboard – $128 **This is the one in ended up purchasing.**
Max weight 200lbs
It’s very similar to the Jetson Plasma (above). It doesn’t light up all over, which was not a thing I was looking for anyway. The Plasma was not on sale when I purchased the Magma so I was drawn to the Magma’s price. Even though the Plasma is up to 220lbs, I feel confident the Magma’s 200lb weight limit will serve us well. If the cool lights and the extra 20 lbs are something you’re looking for, the Plasma is the same price as the Magma right now.
Academy Black Friday: GOTRAX Kids’ Ion Flash Hoverboard for $99.99 – that’s 50% off! Choose from Purple or Blue.
This is a kid one so it has a max weight of 88lbs. Kid ones also have a max speed of around 5mph while the bigger ones have a 10mph speed.
You can compare that one, to a similar GOTRAX at Walmart with a lower price:
GOTRAX LILCUB Hoverboard – $84.00. Comes in blue and purple.
There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing a hoverboard. In my case, it was weight limit since mine was for my teen. I hope this helps with Hoverboard purchases this Christmas!
