EPIKGO Sports & Offroad Hoverboards Overview

Epikgo Hoverboard Models Comparison
EPIKGO Sports Performance Hoverboard

Offroad Hoverboards

Starting off, every EPIKGO product is manufactured with extremely rigorous standards and quality control throughout every step of the process. Whatever hoverboard you pick, a top quality product with a superior safety rating is guaranteed. Firstly, let’s introduce the Premier offroad hoverboard.

Two powerful 400W dual motors ensure that this ride is capable of dealing with slopes and inclines of up to 30 degrees; whilst also reaching speeds of up to 12 mp/h (according to the EPIKGO website). Not only is the Premier perfect for offroading, it’s also one of the fastest hoverboards on the market.

Further featuring a highly durable and suitably protected, UL 2271 certified 37V LG battery pack, resulting in a range of up to 12 miles (19.3 km) on a single charge. Even with this fairly impressive range and overall power the Premier, like the rest of the boards on this list, fully charges in just under 2 hours.

Not only this, but all boards listed boast a seriously strong maximum payload, with the Premier capable of handling weights of up to 240 lbs (110 kg). However, the Classic’s top speed is 10 mp/h with a 10 mile range.

Tackle all types of terrain

Fitted with solid rubber, all-terrain tires, the Classic & Premier both handle extremely smoothly on all types of terrain; maintain the same grip and control on sand, grit/gravel, mud and more. Due to the nature of these offroad hoverboards, both the Classic & Premier have been rigorously tested and achieve both a IP65 waterproof rating & UL 2272 certification for fire and electrical safety.

Not only this, but all of the hoverboards you read about have undergone and passed over 150 separate safety tests. You’ll be hard pressed to find a safer ride than these bad boys. Alongside this, these boards also feature super bright LED lights and side panels, helping you stay seen on late night rides.

Performance / Sports Hoverboards

Moving on to our performance hoverboards, the Sports and Sports Plus. Both of which feature rapid acceleration, power, speed and control; certainly contenders as one of the fastest hoverboards on the market. Easily capable of pushing 12 mp/h and boasting a 12 mile range, the Sport Plus offers great performance and control; whilst the Sports is still a high power board, its 10 mile range and 10 mp/h speed is outshone by the Plus.

However, both of these boards are some of the safest, being completely UL 2272 certified against fire and electrical dangers. Alongside this, all boards listed run on a UL 2271 certified LG Smart battery to further ensure safety and performance. As previously mentioned, all boards listed have undergone and passed over 150 additional safety tests, attesting to their credibility.

Potent power & serious safety

Much like the Classic & Premier, both Sport/Plus have also undergone and passed over 150 safety tests. Furthermore, both models boast powerful 400W motors, enabling them to climb 15 degrees (Sport) and 30 degrees (Plus). This helps enable it to climb slopes up to 30 degrees!

Whilst EPIKGO claims the Sports Plus & Premier nearly twice as powerful and 30% larger than leading competitors, we’re not too sure how true this “twice as powerful” claim is. However, it certainly is a lot larger than many competitors, helping to ensure a more comfortable and stable ride.

Both Sports models feature advanced 8.5″ alloy wheels, ensuring great grip and control on a number of terrains. Tackle a number of terrains such as grass, dirt and sand whilst burning rubber on stable sidewalk and asphalt. As previously mentioned, all models featured are IP56 waterproof rated, meaning that your fresh new ride is capable of handling a number of elements and weather conditions.

This also means that these boards offer ample protection against dust and small particles that would otherwise tamper circuitry. As a US company based in Silicon Valley, EPIKGO take customer support very seriously. 1 year limited warranty is offered for all official purchases, covering parts and labour from the manufacturer.
