Which Hoverboard is better for me?

Posted by Smart Wheel Canada on 11/17/2016 to FAQ


When it comes to hoverboards,  there are very few companies who have specialized in this technology.

Smart Wheel Canada is one of the first in the industry and have accrued a vast amount of knowledge about Self Balancing Technology (Hoverboards).  Working closely with our manufacturing partners has allowed us to serve as leader in this industry. We have worked closely and understand the needs of all age groups, along with all the different applications and Safety requirements.  Smart Wheel Canada has recently partnered with HX group to launch a higher quality co-brand as Smart2HX Series.

Smart Wheel has also designed many accessories including PU leather covers, Hard cases and SmartKart3 Hoverkart by partnering with quality manufactures. 

Smart Wheel offers 2 different  series of hoverboards, Smart2 and Smart2HX


Smart2 series has been around for almost two years but has had a different name in the past and it is the most common first generation hoverboard. Over the last little while there has been many upgrades that have improved it, little by little such as, bluetooth, remote, a variety of colours,  modified 8” and 10” wheel size versions. The Smart 2 series is an entry level in our lineup that is currently available in four different wheel sizes

4.5” Wheel – Solid Rubber Tire

6.5” Wheel – Solid Rubber Tire

8” Wheel – Solid Rubber Tire

10” Wheel – Tube Tire

Smart2HX series is also available in following wheel sizes to meet its rival Smart2 Series. 

6.5” Wheel – Solid Rubber Tire

8” Wheel – Solid Rubber Tire

10” Wheel – Tube Tire

Whether it’s 6.5, 8 or 10 inch wheel the quality of the Smart2HX is built for performance and control. Smart2HX hoverboards have many benefits such as, durability, reliability and they are a more agile device. If you listen to music all the time on the go then you will fall in love with the sound quality and smooth ride. They come with Built-in Stereo (Twin) Bluetooth speakers and dancing lights and have higher clearance which allows you to go on more difficult terrain.

However, both Smart2 and Smart2HX series have their pros and cons as per following comparison.
