Halo Rover X vs Epikgo vs Gyroor Warrior

There are now many different manufacturers offering self-balancing scooters in various sizes and shapes. As long as you're tall enough to stand up straight without wobbling, you should be able to find one that suits you perfectly.

But not all hoverboards are created equal. The Halo Rover X is recognized worldwide as one of the best self-balancing scooters on the market. It is a powerful hoverboard designed to take on multiple kinds of terrain, but, is it really worth all the hype?

In this article, we will compare three of the most popular hoverboards on the market — the Halo Rover X, the Epikgo Sport, and the Gyroor Warrior — in terms of their speed, weight, battery capacity, range, and price.

Differences Between the Halo Rover X, the Epikgo Sport, and the Gyroor Warrior

Motor and Power

Gyroor Warrior: Motor

The Halo Rover X and Epikgo Sport are equipped with dual 400W motors that put out a combined 800 Watts of power. The Gyroor Warrior is the only one out of the three that comes with lower-powered motors; dual 350W engines.

Range

Riders can cover up to 10 miles (or two hours of ride time) on a single full charge of the Halo Rover X’s battery. The Epikgo Sport can also store up enough energy for 10-mile rides, however, since its battery can only guarantee ride times under 2 hours, it's safe to assume that the manufacturer's estimated range was calculated under conservative riding conditions.

The Gyroor Warrior comes with the smallest battery among all three of the hoverboards in this comparison article. While the other two hoverboards sport 150+Wh batteries, the Gyroor Warrior is equipped with a 144Wh pack. 

The Gyroor Warrior can reportedly cover under 10 miles of range on a single charge. If you're worried about range, you might want to stay away from the Gyroor warrior.

Speed

Halo Rover X: Speed

All three hoverboards have a max speed of 10 miles per hour. Keep in mind that factors like wind direction, rider weight, terrain type, battery level, etc. might hamper your hoverboard’s performance, preventing you from attaining the unit’s top speed.

Weight Limit and Net Weight

Of the three hoverboards, the Epikgo Sport is the lightest, weighing in at 30 lbs (14 kg). The second lightest is the Halo Rover X, tipping scales at just over 32 lbs (14.5). 

The Gyroor Warrior is the heaviest of the three hoverboards. This self-balancing scooter weighs 33 pounds (15 kg) and can support up to 265 pounds (125 kg) of load. 

The Epikgo Sport also has a total payload capacity of 265 lbs while the Halo Rover maxes out at 260 lbs.

Display and controls 

Halo Rover X: Display and controls

The Halo Rover X has a smartphone app that when connected allows riders to monitor their metrics and customize their ride. Users can find this app by searching for the term “Halo Rover” on the Apple Store or on Google’s Play Store.

The app tracks the device’s speed, trip distance, battery level, etc. Users can also switch between three different riding modes from the app. Beginner mode delivers the least amount of power and is programmed into the Halo Rover X to help newbies learn the ropes of balancing and riding a hoverboard.

The other two speed settings include the Normal (or intermediate) mode and the Advanced mode (for more experienced hoverboard riders)

The “Gyroor” app, on the other hand, allows riders to set the color of their hoverboard’s headlamps, track their device’s speed, monitor battery life, adjust the device’s speed setting, etc. 

The app also has a “self-balancing” function that when turned on, sends signals to the scooter to calibrate itself automatically. Another cool feature about the Gyroor app is that it lets you set the speed limit for your hoverboard.

This function makes it easy and convenient for parents to supervise their children whenever they’re riding a hoverboard. Epikgo’s smartphone app is pretty similar to the Halo Rover. It’s called “Epikgo” and it allows riders to switch between different riding modes as well as monitor their speed, trip distance, mileage, and battery level.

Water Resistance 

Epikgo Sport: Water Resistance

All three hoverboards are UL 2272-certified. This means they were, at one point or another, exposed to the elements during the safety tests carried out on them.

The table below outlines each hoverboard’s IP rating and what each rating represents in regards to the level of resistance each device’s enclosures provide against liquid and solid ingress.

Hoverboard Name

IP Code

Code Breakdown

Its electronic components are partially protected against ingress from dust and other particulates.

It will perform well under light rain as its electric components are shielded from water splashes from any direction.

IP56

Its electronic components are partially protected against ingress from dust and other particulates.

It is resistant to water projected from high-pressure nozzles. 

Upgrades and Accessories

Halo Rover X: Upgrades and Accessories

All three hoverboards are equipped with front and rear LED lights. The Halo Rover X and Epikgo Sports’ tail lights also act as turn signals.

Don’t expect too much from the lights on these hoverboards though. They’re not designed to illuminate far ahead of you but rather make you visible to other road users in low-visibility conditions.

Are Halo Hoverboards Any Good

The Halo Rover X is currently one of the best-rated hoverboards in the world. Almost all the articles and videos online reviewing the best hoverboards mention the Halo Rover X. 

Their hoverboards are unlike most available on the market today. They’re built to withstand rough riding conditions and are more powerful than average hoverboards.

Plus Halo Board extends an extended 12-month warranty on all their hoverboards. 

How Fast Is the Halo Rover X Hoverboard

The Halo Rover X has a max speed of 10 miles an hour. It can only reach this speed in its highest power setting; “advanced” mode. 

A lot of factors might affect this hoverboard’s ability to attain that top speed though. Things like terrain type, weight of the rider, battery level, etc.

How Long Does the Halo Rover X Last

The Halo Rover X’s components are built to last for years. It comes with rugged 8.5-inch tires that are designed to absorb feedback usually experienced when riding over road irregularities. 

Is Halo Rover X Self Balancing

Halo Rover X: Self Balancing

While the Halo Rover X’s app doesn’t support auto calibration like the Gyroor Warrior’s, the device comes preinstalled with a program that keeps it upright whenever it’s powered on. 

Is the Halo Rover Hoverboard Waterproof

The Halo Rover X is water resistant, not waterproof. It is designed to meet the IPX4 water-resistance standard, which means it can operate under light rain.

Please keep in mind that this self-balancing scooter is not designed to be completely immersed in water. Only hoverboards with water-resistance ratings of IPX7 and higher can withstand being completely submerged in water.

Who's the Halo Rover X For

Halo Rover X

Adults (even heavy adults) and children can ride the Halo Rover X. It is powerful, durable, and easy to ride.

Also, since the app allows riders to choose their preferred speed mode, parents and guardians can restrict the hoverboard’s speed to make it safe and suitable for younger kids to ride.

Who's the Epikgo Sport For

Epikgo Sport

Like the Halo Rover X, the Epikgo Sport is designed for the average rider. It’s great for recreational riding and has the extra power and agility to tackle steep hills and unforgiving terrain.

The only issue I have with it is that it doesn’t come with off-road tires. The hoverboard’s road tires will not provide as much grip on loose and bumpy terrain as off-road tires. 

Who’s the Gyroor Warrior For

Gyroor Warrior

The Gyroor Warrior is a much more affordable hoverboard than the other self-balancing scooters in this article. If you’re in the market for a powerful but budget-friendly hoverboard, the Gyroor Warrior might just be the best hoverboard for you.
