Speed and power & Distance

How fast does it go?

The Bluefin 6.5” hoverboard will allow you to cruise speeds up to 9 mph comfortably and safely and can hit an incline around 15 degrees. These specs are quite typically comparable with other popular hoverboards.

What age/weight is it suitable for?

The hypersensitive gyro-sensors make it an admirable choice for smaller riders of ages 8 years old and plus being at least 45lbs or 20 kg. While enabling it to function awesomely for kids, it’s also fully functional with weight up to 220lbs or 100kg. The model can provide your kids with an awesome ride or yourself-suited for the whole family.

What is the range/distance?

There should be minimal issues with running out of your battery life as it will run up to a respectable 6 hours or for 6 miles.

Can it be used offroad?

The Bluefin 6.5″ Classic high clearance tires allow you to zoom naturally over all kinds of FLAT terrain, indoors & out- unfortunately, it is not rated for off-roading. At least you can still zip through your house and down (steady) paths, your Bluefin 6.5″ Classic will take you there in style. If you like this brand and want an off-road board, check their site for the Bluefin 8.5” All-terrain or Bluefin 10” Cobra.

Battery life

How long does it take to charge? How long will the battery last for?

Featuring the lithium-ion Samsung batteries; the Bluefin 6.5″ can cruise up to a whopping 6 hours or 6 miles! (Take into consideration the weight being withheld on the board and speed affect the battery consumption.) To gain a full recharge after your day full of adventures give it a 2-hour charge with the provided charger and it should be good to go again.

Battery protection & safety

A safe and reliable Samsung 16 cell rechargeable lithium-ion battery is installed and tested and verified by a top UK approved test house and is UL and CE certified. You can also find on the Bluefin site that each board comes with 1-year warranty and lifetime backup support.

Design and Ergonomics

Does it connect to your smartphone via app or Bluetooth?

The Bluefin 6.5″ has an integrated Bluetooth speaker built in for music on the go, which is great but fairly common with a lot of hoverboards on the market in 2019. BUT the added bonus that not all boards feature is the smartphone app! Bluefin smooth ride can be downloaded to your phone on either iOS or Android and has tons of awesome features such as GPS tracking, training modes, games, competitions and more.

Does it have lights?

The Bluefin 6.5″ has LED sonic bright lights are installed for a cool vibrant look as well as safety reasons to help keep the road lit up for you on night time rides.

Build quality and ease of use

Is it easy to ride?

Bluefin is rated as a Safe and Trusted brand in the UK. It’s easy to ride due to the gyro sensory design, comfortably hop on and off and have a smooth ride; the board comes equipped with a training mode and normal mode- ease into your comfort zone with less hesitation. It does have a learning curve, just like all hoverboards but it is very straight forward once you get a feel for it. Leaning forwards to go, backward to back up, to the left of right to turn, eventually becoming natural and stays quite steady.

Is the Bluefin 6.5” Classic waterproof?

We wouldn’t recommend Bluefin 6.5″ for rainy conditions as it is not rated as waterproof or resistant. Check the 8.5” all-terrain version with Bluefin.

Here are the few other hoverboards by Bluefin as well with quick descriptions to check out:
(Essentially they are all quite comparable just using different tires sizes and some being waterproof.)

  • Bluefin 8” Drifter: slightly bigger wheels leading to slightly better terrain offerings.
  • Bluefin 10” Cobra: even bigger tires at 10” which are inflatable instead of solid, going over all sort of terrain from rough dirt roads or gravel to grass and is waterproof!
  • Bluefin All Terrain- Back to 8.5” tires but they are solidly gripped and can handle an even larger mass at 120kgs or 265lbs and is designed for rough terrain.

CONS
  • Bluefin seems to be that of a great board but with that being said, there are currently so many competing brands on the market that we really need to see something standout for this one, given the price tag and super average speed, nothing special or extra is supplied.
