3 Benefits of Using Self Balancing Scooters

The self-balancing scooter (or ‘hover board’ as they are sometimes referred to) has become an increasingly popular way of getting around nowadays. With its compact size and ease of use, it has changed the way people move about. There are many benefits to riding this novel wheeled wonder.

1. Its small, compact form factor allows it to be carried around easily much like a skateboard, but with the added benefit of being able to propel itself. The silent motors and efficient batteries allow the rider to cruise at a top speed of 8 to 10 miles per hour, with an average range of about 20 miles off a single charge. This makes the self-balancing scooter a good alternative to the much larger bicycle. It is great for manoeuvring around tighter obstacles.

2. These hover boards are also easy to maintain, with less moving parts and robust builds. A good quality unit will last for years with proper use.

3. Since they are designed to be balanced by themselves, they are safer and easier to use. Most people learn to use a hover board in a matter of minutes. Just lean on one side of the board to turn that way. Tilt both feet to the front to move forward and tilt back to glide backwards. The degree of tilt dictates the speed in which the hover board goes. Beginners and children, of course, should wear protective gear such as knee and elbow pads for safety. But because of its low speed and low centre of gravity, a hover board is perfectly safe to ride once you have enough experience.

You can even find a self-balancing scooter with added features like Bluetooth, which allows you to link your mobile phone to the hover board and the ability to charge off your mobile devices off the on board battery pack—a big plus for the tech savvy pedestrian.

It’s an enjoyable way of getting around town or just for having fun. With experience, you can even do jumps and tricks and show off your riding skills.
