This Skque X1 review will take a look at the hoverboard product and see if it’s the right choice for you.
Hoverboards are awesome. They are a whole ton of fun, and they provide the perfect way to get around thanks to their zero emissions, their great top speed (high enough to be quick, not so high as to be dangerous) and their light weight (meaning you can bring them into the office with you when you’re done). They’re a lot of fun and they make excellent gifts come Christmas!
But is the Skque X1 a good hoverboard, or should you look elsewhere?
Design and Appearance
The Skque X1 is another hoverboard that looks a lot like all the other hoverboards out there (on the whole), with a somewhat generic design for the most part. That said, it comes in a huge range of different colors (9 to be precise) and that means that you can find the color that best suits you.
The best by far is the back though – which also benefits from a more angular and unique stealth-jet inspired build. It is also the color that is best complimented by the green LEDs. It’s a shame that not all the hoverboards have this design!
This is a very average device in terms of performance. Its max speed is only 7.45mph which is on the average-low end of the spectrum. The battery capacity is 4,2000mAh and the max load is 120KG.
Some users found that this hoverboard felt a little more jerky and less smooth than some other models. We didn’t find this in our tests, but it’s worth keeping in mind.
What’s really interesting though is that as well as all the color choices, you can also pick from three wheel sizes – which will affect the balance and also the terrain suitability.
Other than the sheer number of options, the Skque also stands out thanks to its built-in Bluetooth speaker, which will let you enjoy music on your commute to work or school, or to entertain a crowd.
On top of this, it also has a useful set of LED lights which help to improve visibility in low light. That’s a very important consideration for anyone who suspects they might occasionally use their scooter in the evenings and it can help to put your mind at rest if you’re giving this as a gift for kids.
