What are the Different Sizes of Hoverboards?

There are several types of hoverboards depending on the size of the wheels. The larger the diameter of the wheels, the more you can go on rough roads. To choose thus according to the use.

 

Wheels in 6.5 inches → Classic hoverboard

 

The most “reassuring” hoverboard is because it is closer to the ground.

 

Ideal for smooth, flat surfaces. Some difficulties for paved surfaces

 

Wheels from 8 to 10 inches → All-terrain or “4×4” hoverboard

Better stability and more off-road. These hoverboards can travel on grass gravel in the forest. They have big wheels that make you think of 4×4 wheels. The wheels in 4.5 inches

Hoverboard for children

For children from 8-10 years old. Be careful, but, because the weight is limited to 20 kg on 4.5-inch hoverboards.

What is the Average Price of a Hoverboard?

A UK Hoverboard costs between 200 and 1000 €.

The price depends on the features and the size (6.5, 8, or 10 inches) you are looking for. The better the hoverboard is, the higher the price you can imagine.

Low-cost hoverboard: make sure it is CE certified. If it is not approved, it is in principle not allowed to drive in the UK

Obligation to wear a Hoverboard Helmet?

As with all, there is no legal obligation to wear a helmet while hoverboarding.

But it is recommended to wear one, as well as protections such as girdles, knee pads, or wrist guards. Indeed, hoverboards can be unstable. You are in direct contact with other road users who are often much bigger and faster.

What insurance is compulsory on a hoverboard?

It is mandatory to ensure your civil liability onboard a hoverboard Hoverboards are subject to the same liability insurance obligation as motor vehicles. Such as cars or motorcycles.

What is civil liability used for?

Civil liability covers all damage you may cause to other people, vehicles, or materials.

Can you find if you don’t have hoverboard insurance?

In theory, yes because it is a crime. It is forbidden to drive a motor vehicle without insurance. But, as the highway code has not yet incorporated these new vehicles, there is a certain tolerance.

How much does hoverboard liability insurance cost?

UK Hoverboard offers you to ensure the civil liability of your hoverboard limited to 25km / h. The subscription is done in 2min, and you receive your certificate immediately.

What are the traffic rules to follow on a hoverboard?

The hoverboard is not yet in the rules of the road. For now, they considered pedestrians, and certain rules have been put in place:

Hoverboard on the sidewalks

It is forbidden to exceed 6 km / h in a hoverboard (electric skate) on the sidewalks. Some town halls have also decided to ban them completely from the sidewalks (see in Paris, with a fine of € 135)
Hoverboard on bike paths and bus lanes Hoverboards accepted on cycle paths and bus lanes, up to 25km / h. They must respect the highway code.

Hoverboard on the road

In principle, the road is reserved for registered vehicles and bicycles. It would thus prohibit hoverboards because they are not registered. As nothing is set in stone yet, hoverboards enjoy a certain tolerance. Click for more INFO
