The Halo Rover X is arguably the best hoverboard on the market today. It has it all: amazing built quality, 8.5″ indestructible never-flat tires, training modes, a smartphone app, Bluetooth speakers, incredible motor power, and much more.
The Halo Rover X sets the standard of hoverboard quality in today’s market.
Geared with two 400-watt motors (one in each wheel), the Halo Rover X boasts an incredible max speed of 10 miles per hour. As for range, a single charge will take you up to 10 miles. Considering that the average is around 7 miles, this is way above standard.
In short, the Rover X is an absolute powerhouse that’ll work excellently for virtually any use case. Whether you’re commuting in urban areas or want short steep rides in off-road terrain you’re covered.
The construction and attention to detail on the Halo Rover X are stunning.
For instance, the hoverboard has protective wings crafted in high-grade aluminum, keeping the body safe from the most common impacts.
The 8.5-inch tires are strong as houses as well. The Halo Rover X is actually designed to conquer the harshest terrain obstacles you may come across. This is also the reason this particular board ranks #1 on our Best Off-Road Hoverboards list.
A nice plus is that the hoverboard is IPX4 water-resistant. Whether it be debris or full-on rain, you never fully know the weather conditions, so it’s nice to be able to ride home without the fear of ruining your board for good.
These things combined with 800 watts of motor power allow the Halo Rover X to climb slopes at a 20-degree angle while maintaining a smooth and steady ride.
All the necessary safety features are present. The charger included is UL certified and the hoverboard itself is both UL2272 and UL2271 certified.
Hoverboard fires and safety issues have been a huge debate in the latest years, but the introduction of the UL-regulations has seen a huge improvement in the overall market quality in the US.
The guys at Halo Board have excellent customer service. The hoverboard itself comes with a 12-month warranty which is far more than most competitors. They are so confident in their product that they’re happy to offer such a generous warranty, which is a big pro.
They have a phone line and a contact page you can use to quickly get in touch with them.
There are practically no downsides with the Halo Rover X. The hoverboard is flawless, but this leads me to my only drawback: the price.
The Halo Rover X isn’t a cheap hoverboard. Nor would we expect it to be with the vast list of features and qualities it boasts. It’s the old good saying of ‘you get what you pay for’. With the Rover X, you pay a notable fee but you get a product that is second to none and has dominated the market for more than a year now.
If you don’t mind spending a little extra to get an absolute unit of a board, this is what you need.
The feature list for the Halo Rover X is long and impressive. We’ve noted down a few of the most important ones below:
Like other top hoverboards, this one comes with three different riding modes that’ll help you get the hang of it before unleashing its full potential. Beginner, normal and advanced.
An awesome addition to the hoverboard is the smartphone-compatible app. The app lets you track your current speed and gives you a clear view of how much battery is left on the Halo Rover X.
You can also see how big of a distance you’ve covered along with a map of the ride you’ve taken. You can even turn on and off the hoverboard using the app without having to get down to the actual board itself (long live laziness).
The Halo Rover X hoverboard has a built-in Bluetooth speaker. This allows you to listen to your favorite tunes on the go. Although it isn’t an audiophile quality speaker, we were actually quite impressed by both the volume and clarity it offered.
The Halo Rover X is for anyone who wants the best of the best. Whether you want to commute, ride off-road or simply have fun in urban areas, the Halo Rover X is the pinnacle of options available.
It does carry a bigger price tag than most competitors but it goes hand in hand with the quality offered.
Packed with features and quality components, this 800-watt monster of a hoverboard brings the competition to shame in almost every way imaginable.
Halo Board is an excellent company that stands by the quality of its products, giving you a 12-month limited warranty on your Halo Rover X unit.
If you have the money to spend, we don’t see a reason not to get the Halo Rover X as it is one of the best boards on the market.
