The future is here — finally, hoverboards have hit the scene. A crossover of the latest and greatest technology and transportation, hoverboards are cool, trendy ways to get around.
They can be simple, minimalistic, and easy to use, and can bring a lot of benefits into your life. Whether you use them to get around the office or to jet-set around downtown so you don’t have to pay a fortune for parking, hoverboards are here to stay.
But if you are new to the world of hoverboards, you might be asking a variety of questions, including: do hoverboards have a weight limit?
Yes, hoverboards have weight limits.
While weight limits on hoverboards are perhaps not the first question that comes to mind, understanding exactly how your hoverboard works is key to getting one that is right for you. Obviously, a hoverboard weight limit (or weight minimum) for an eight-year-old is completely different than a hoverboard for heavy adults. But how do you determine what priorities to consider?
Different hoverboards have different weight limits and maximum weights, and some hoverboards are built for heavy people. When looking for a hoverboard’s max weight, understanding the range of possible hoverboard weight capacities is key to choosing the perfect product for you.
Generally speaking, there are ranges in which weights for hoverboards are built to sustain. Hoverboards are built in different sizes. Therefore, the weight capacities increase proportionally with the size of the hoverboard.
The following are general pinpointers for hoverboard weight limits:
Obviously, these are rough estimates, and you should do your own research when it comes to choosing a product that is right for you. However, this guide should give you a good start as you begin your research.

There are several factors to consider when it comes to choosing a hoverboard. The integrity of its construction is going to play a huge factor in how much weight it can hold.
Upon reading this article, you may be asking: why do hoverboards have weight limits in the first place? Why is understanding and abiding by these limits so important?
Well, believe it or not, choosing a hoverboard with the weight limit in mind is dually important — for your safety, and for the safety of your hoverboard.
Whatever hoverboard you choose, make sure you do your research to make sure you choose one that is correct for you, your proportions, and your lifestyle.
While it may not necessarily be a matter of life or death, it is important to be wise about the decisions you make and the things you invest in. Happy hovering!
