Hoverboards are no longer the new kid on the block, but they’re still as popular as ever as a gift for all ages, especially at Christmas! They’re safer and better made than ever before, so if you’ve never made the plunge, this could be your year to own one. The Sisigad hoverboard is relatively new to the market, but it has quickly risen to the top in 2019 and become one of the bestselling self balancing scooters of the year. Available on Amazon (one of our favorite retailers for UL2272 certified hover boards), what makes this one stand out from the rest? Read our Sisigad hoverboard review to find out why this is a product you (and your family!) won’t want to miss!
Features and specs:
Speed and range
A top speed of 9 miles per hour and range of 6 miles are pretty impressive for a hoverboard of this price. You might think 9mph doesn’t sound very fast, but it feels faster than you’d think (and is also faster than the average 6mph which you’d normally get with a 6.5 inch board). In fact, you might want to encourage kids to use the slower speed, especially when riding for the first time until they learn to control it properly.
This electric hoverboard comes with bluetooth, which although it works well and pairs easily with your mobile phone, the sound quality isn’t the best. Kids will probably appreciate being able to listen to their music though, and it’s a good feature to have.
Power and Performance
Dual 300 watt motors mean this scooter is more than capable of meeting its speed requirements and max carrying weight of 260 lbs. Hoverboards are not really for hills or rough ground but as long as you are on suitable terrain, you should get a great, smooth ride from this model.
It’s well designed with a durable build made from quality materials that will withstand the rough and tumble of family usage. The UL 2272 certification means that it’s been through, and passed, stringent battery safety testing. That means that it won’t overcharge or be a fire hazard. As with all electrical products though, make sure you use it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It’s NOT waterproof and shouldn’t be used in rainy conditions (no hoverboard is 100% waterproof, but some more expensive ones have a level of water resistance and can withstand some water exposure)
It comes in a range of different colors and has LED lights included – you can check out some of them on Amazon here:
What makes the Sisigad hoverboard a bestseller?
The price is definitely the biggest plus point for this hoverboard. Just a few short years ago a hoverboard with similar features and specs would’ve cost anything from $300-$400. This one however is around half the price but includes things like built in bluetooth speakers, is UL 2272 certified, travels at up to 9 mph and comes in a wide range of colors.
Another thing that we like is that it has a max load of up to 260lbs (most hoverboards in this price range only carry up to 220lbs, which means more of the adults will have an opportunity to hop on board!)
What are users saying? If you check it out on Amazon you’ll find hundreds of Sisigad hoverboard reviews, and the vast majority are positive (lots of 5 stars). Mostly from parents who’ve bought this for their kids and have been delighted by the quality (and their kid’s enjoyment of the product).
All things considered, it’s easy to see that this hoverboard is a bargain at its current price, and if you’ve been on the fence about buying one, this is a deal that should be snapped up while its still available!
Does it work off road?
This is definitely more suitable for indoors or paved roads (smooth, dry surfaces). Like all hoverboards in this price range, it doesn’t have the larger, more durable tires, and rugged off road build of the off road hoverboards on the market. Some users have stated it can be ridden over grass, gravel and dirt, but this is not recommended. Sisigad do have an off road model in case you’re interested.
Who is the Sisigad suitable for?
All ages from about 5 years old up to adult will have no problem learning how to use this hoverboard. Children should ride under the supervision of a responsible adult though and wear protective gear for safety (especially the younger ones)
Most people (kids included) learn to ride in about 5-10 minutes – it’s really easy to learn to balance on these because they are “self balancing”. Beginners, office workers, students, dog walkers, pretty much anyone can enjoy using one of these. And with a minimum weight capacity of 44lbs and a maximum of 260lbs (one of the highest weight capacities in its class), it’s suitable for almost anyone.
Verdict – well worth the investment!
The price is actually exceptionally good value for such a great hoverboard – I would’ve expected less for a budget board, but this really over delivers. For a 6.5 inch wheel model it’s solid and durable, and with a wide weight range, is suitable for both kids and adults (up to a max weight of 260 lbs). We love the LED lights, the Bluetooth capability (despite the speakers lacking in sound quality) and the wide variety of colors, and its power and performance are better than most in this price range. It has an impressive dual speed of up to 9mph, so the adults and bigger kids can enjoy the top speed, whereas the younger ones (or beginners) can start off slow. If you’re looking for a Christmas or birthday gift that will be VERY well received, and all the family can enjoy, it’s worth checking out the Sisigad hoverboard.
