There are lots of different reasons to get a hoverboard. And lots of good reasons to pick the TOMOLOO hoverboard in particular. This TOMOLOO Hoverboard review will examine why.
Right now, self-balancing scooters are all the rage. While they’ve been around for a little while, they recently exploded in popularity when a bunch of celebrities such as Jimmy Fallon were seen riding them. This is one of the immediate appeals of the product – they’re popular while still being new enough to be highly exciting and rare.
But this is far from just a fad. Self-balancing scooters are quite likely the future of personal transport. Not only are they nippy without being dangerous but they’re also incredibly manoeuvrable and light.
Lots of people are now choosing to use the scooters to get around to save energy and are having a lot more fun doing so. They’re light enough to be stowed under one arm when you head into a store and they can travel up to 15km before running out of steam (they also recharge in under 2.5 hours!).
But how does the TOMOLOO Hoverboard stack up?
Design and Appearance
A lot of hoverboards use the same generic design as one another. This is because many of them are actually manufactured by the very same company and then just sold under different names with a few tweaks.
This is not true of the TOMOLOO. This is a completely different looking beast that has a lot going for it. It’s like the gaming PC of the hoverboard world, thanks to glowing RGB LEDs which look neon and futuristic, a winged and detailed platform, and a
This is one of the fastest hoverboards you can buy. It goes up to 12mph, which is significantly more than the very common 8mph.
If that still sounds slow, then consider how much quicker it will feel when you’re leaning forward and with nothing between you and the open air. It’s a thrilling experience, which you certainly can’t say of all these gadgets.
The performance is also very smooth and responsive.
What’s decidedly more average however is the battery life: you should get about 1 hour of travel out of your self-balancing scooter and this can vary depending on the gradient and the speed that you’re riding at.
The thick 8.5 inch wheels also make a big difference – allowing for off-road riding and climbing inclines up to 20”!
This hoverboard comes with a variety of impressive features. For one, it has audio playback over Bluetooth. This means that you can enjoy listening to some music while you’re riding, and it means that you can even use your hoverboard as an entertainment device if you’re hanging out with friends once you reach your destination.
Now, a few different models of hoverboard actually offer music playback. So what makes this one stand out as especially impressive, is the fact that it is provided via 4.2 stereo speakers. That means you’re getting surround sound… from a hoverboard!
The LED is also a great feature. This offers safety of course by improving the visibility when you’re riding. At the same time though, it also offers you more customization and expression thanks to the fact that these are RGB LEDs – in other words you can choose the color yourself in order to create a bold and unique look that is specific to you. Like I said – it’s like the gaming PC of hoverboards.
Of course there is the chance that some may find this ostentatious however.
