I bought this for my 12 year old son, I didn't know which one to buy cause we live in the country and need one that is good off road, in the gravel and dirt, and perhaps a bit of snow. I have to tell you I have never been more pleased with a purchase. Not only did it ship out that day and arrive within 2 days, the look on my kids face was priceless. It is a bit spendy but worth every penny! Gravel, no problem, grass, easy, dirt, easy, my husband who is 245 LBS tried it and he was able to go on gravel with no problem. It took him only a couple minutes to get to where he was comfortable going 9 mph, and he loves having the app to see how fast he is going and how many miles he has gone.
Ordered white and black colors. The white was delivered yesterday...still waiting for the black. It is much nicer when fresh out of the box than in the pictures I saw online.
I am very satisfied with the purchase of the transportation device because it has made my granddaughter a happy girl.
Wow! talk about an upgrade from last year. Very impressed overall with this purchase. I have owned 2 hoverboards before this and this one puts the other 2 to shame.
MY SON IS LEARNING TO RIDE THE EXTREME MODEL. HIS FRIENDS GIVE IT A GO WHEN THEY COME BY.
ADDITIONALLY 4 EXTRA RUBBER PADS WERE INCLUDED IN THE BOX. EVERYTHING WAS NICELY PACKAGED ON ARRIVAL.
I emailed support because I needed guidance for recalibration. They got back to me within 15 minutes and helped me reset everything. My son has really enjoyed his 13th birthday gift.
I forgot the name of the person I spoke to over the phone, but he helped me with all my questions in regards to safety and if my 8 year old can use it.
Its been 2 weeks since we received the Halo go as of now it has surpassed all our expectations. I am nothing but pleased with this product.
This is one nice looking scooter. We have not tried it out yet. It came in a plain box so no one can tell what it was inside. I will be hiding it in our garage until Christmas. Thank you for the fast delivery.
Arrived just in time as advertised. Took it outside for a tester, it works perfect. The gold color stands out like a beam. It is better than my last one.
Probably the smoothest and most fun land board I have ever used. I used it many times and one of the rubber pieces came off so I they sent me a new one for free. I kinda wish the glowing light wasn't "on" at all times especially during day because you can't see too much of it. I will admit that at night the light is very cool. I give it a 9 out of 10
I NOW KNOW THAT ALL THE RESEARCH I DID ONLINE WAS WORTH IT BECAUSE THIS IS ONE AMAZING DEVICE FOR OUR GIRL.
Our Halo Rovers have been a fun family activity and I think it's even great for adults. My kids and I take them on long rides and I keep track of the battery life and mileage on my iphone. All three of my orders came with carry zip cases that makes lifting these babies a whole lot easier.
Our little girl is really enjoying her hover board.
It came with a well written easy to understand manual and also included a carry bag.
5 stars for the blue color.
To my surprise getting use to the toy was much easier than I thought.
By the next day the kids were pros on it.
To be able to play music from the scooter is fantastic.
We will buy another one soon.
My Extreme board arrived right on time. The board looks like it fell from the galactic down to earth. For me, this was a challenge at first and now I'm better at it since learning to control the board and using my toes and heels to do turns. I get compliments now everywhere I ride.
At first I thought I was too old for this at 40+ years of age, but it has been a boatload of fun! The quality of this machine is excellent and I believe - the best on the market. The bluetooth app works without issues on Apple devices and the speaker sounds great. I couldnt' be more pleased with this purchase. You get what you pay for = and in this case it is certainly worth spending a little bit more to receive a quality product.
Took it out in some light rain for 15 mins to see how it handles. Works perfect, even the speakers were on working great.
My box came with a big dent in it but fortunately the item was not damged. Works great like it should.
Just received the board today, 3 days early. Can't give a review about the board because it's a Christmas gift for someone. However, I'm tickled pink with the exceptional delivery time.
I bought it online for a gift for my sister's kid 2 weeks ago. I am unable to go to the store because of my work so I ordered one online. I had also seen this product on Amazon which also helped me proceed ordering directly from this company. Checking out online was easy and the customer care is very good and reliable. They emailed me on how to track the package as it arrived just in time before the birthday weekend. Sisters kid was so happy with my gift because that's her dream present.
She is able to connect and play music from the device
Rubber wheels high in quality will last along time
When using the product she has good control of the product so I would say it is easy to use.
Riders from many different ages and weight groups can use the device
Easy to store with the special case it came with
The front lights work great but they are more noticeable at night
WE LOVE THIS HOVERBOARD. It arrived quickly, was already charged, and my daughter and I love it. I am nothing but pleased with this product.
I had a few questions about the Halo board but after one call all of those questions were answered GREAT customer service
Last night, this was an instant hit not only for the kids but for all the adults that came over for Thanksgiving.
It did take a few minutes to get use to but once they did they were zippin through the house.
I personally think its a must for kids they just love these things.
Nicely done A+ the kids really like it and we are happy with this one.
Our neighbors recommended this product to my husband and I. Together we decided to make this online purchase for the one in the color pink, and it is absolutely marvelous.
It works well too, our granddaughter has become a pro. Highly recommended product for young kids.
My daughter LOVES it !!
Had some questions about my Halo Board. Customer service was helpful and answered everything today which is the same day my questions were asked.
I have never boarded in my life and getting use to the board wasn't hard but wasn't a breeze either. It took me and my cousin 2-3 days of using the board to learn to ride well, all in all maybe 2 hours of total riding attempts. Once I used my cousin's shoulder to balance while riding I experience the actual really of how it is suppose to be. Once I was able to ride the board I was able to zoom much faster and do 360 degree turns in one spot.
WE HAVE HAD OUR HALO ROVER SINCE MID-SUMMER AND CAN GET HEAVY TO CARRY AT TIMES SO I KNEW THERE MUST HAVE BEEN SOMETHING TO CARRY THIS THING AROUND IN. THE NEW XIP BAG WAS DELIVERED ON MONDAY. VERY USEFUL AND HAS A REALLY GOOD FIBER HANDLE TO IT.
Our Halo Rover that my husband placed the order for arrives today. I know our girls are going to be thrilled. It came in a nice well protected package and was inside of a zip case. Thank you for making such a gorgeous product.
Did a few rounds of training last night on the Halo. Probably the best toy device I have ever purchased for my son.
Just got the GO. The color is a wicked chrome blue so it has different tones of blue from different angles. I can only imagine how crazy the gold on is.
My kids have banged it around many times and it just keeps goin.
This hoverboard is easy to learn. My kids learned to move and spin the same day.
Grandson Dylan is loving it more with each day!
We are happy owners of two halo gos. Before ordering one we searched for a safe certified hoverboard and had to have the best one.
The manual was very clear and well written for instruction. The product seemed easy to use because our kids got in a few minutes.
Both of our sons are very active so they scratched theirs up, but I guess it is expected because of the nature of this type of product.
GOT MINE ON WEDNESDAY. I BANGED UP THE METAL WINGS HERE AND THERE BUT IT'S GREAT SINCE NOTHING REALLY HAPPENED TO THE HOVERBOARD. GOOD PROTECTION I ONLY WISH IT WAS FASTER. I DO LONGBOARDING SO SPEED IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. QUALITY IS GOOD
My husband opened the box this morning, he tested it to make sure everything was good to go. Now its ready for Santa to deliver. For the longest time our little boy wanted one, we just couldn't get one back than with all the stories. I would suggest a rubber cover for these hover boards.
It works fine now he loves it. We had an issue with the bluetooth after a week, but their customer service tech team took care of it.
This is even way cooler than I thought it would be. Just so fun to ride and spin and go forward and backwards.
I am glad we decided to get the Halo Go for our little girl. It's safety certified so I am satisfied. She was in heaven...reminded me of the first time my dad surprised me with my first new car.
Customer Service was great got it 2 days early. My son loves his new hoverboard.
these last fews days the haloboard has been a fun ride for my younger brother. he's gotten really good this last 2 days. I looked up how to ride on YouT an tried it in our backward. you should not use this board inside your house! it works very good on flat surfaces. the speaker is loud enough for close range and you can adjust the volume from your phone. the glowing blue lights are super.
Have not had any problems with the Halo Rovers and lots of kids have had a joy using em. My kids take them everywhere and ride them with their friends.
They even took it on their school field trip to Sweetwater Creek State Park after I met with their teacher and explained that it was certified for safety.
I ordered the Halo Go for my Grandson and he loved it; he has had many hours of enjoyment from his device.
Very fun for teens. My kids showed me the videos on you tube at first. There will be a learning curve for this Halo. Good quality and on time shipping.
In my opinion, the halo-carry case is absolutely a must to get. If at any point your gonna need to carry the hoverboard you will wish you had one. Very durable because it can hold more weight than the actual hoverboard.
Mostly impressed by the big wheels and the sturdiness of this Halo Rover. This order was for my kids.
It is solid, sturdy, and well-made. Not only has the hoverboard been terrific for our house but it is also perfect for an outdoor toy to get kids outside to enjoy the nice weather.
QUICK POINTERS BELOW...
Battery lastes a long time or at least enough where they get tired for the day.
Only needs about 1 hour of charge
The extra carry bag will come in handy when carrying the hoverboard from place to place.
Everything on the hoverboard is UL certified
The top rubber pieces help with scratches but if your child doesn't treat it nicely expect scratches.
It has wireless speakers on the bottom for music, this I find very useful especialy if you ever plan using it outside.
Great battery indicator. When orange light starts to flash it means battery has about 15 mins left.
Is there any way I can get a HALO GO carry bag? Ordered a PINK HALO GO 2 months and it did not come with a carry bag or anything now I see on here that you guys are including them for free.
We got this scooter for our son's twelfth birthday, and it is really nice! Seems to be a very safe toy, as long as it is used properly.
As a parent it is most important that my child is using a safer toy and that is the reason we went with this one.
Since I learned to ride this weekend I cant image my life without this board. The sensation of riding is pure action. The engineering is amazing and love the super cool design. Just keep in mind this is a sports activity so you might fall while practising so wear protection for starters. It gives me a similar feeling to snowboarding and wakeboarding. Almost forgot to mention how the bluetooth speaker is great for my longer runs.
We have had the Halo Rover for less than a month and today was the first time we took it outside on the grass. My kids are 8 and 11, surprisingly this hoverboard rides very well on grass and our pavement. Easy to clean the tires afterwards when we took it back inside our house . The kids had the speakers on the entire time and we're doing all kinds moves on it. I would recommend buying on for each kid if you have more than one, because once they get on they don't wanna come off.
This has been a much better upgraded version from the previous hoverboard I purchased for my daughter earlier this year. It dont shake or loose charge. She always says its very smooth when she makes turnes. I wanna say it was a great idea for the rubber protectors on top, so the hoverboard dont get beat up as much. Has speakers in there so she loves turning them on and riding in the house.
The gold hoverboard my husband ordered has been spot on perfect. Carrying case is a major plus.
My son was in heaven when he opened to see his new board. At 12 I want him to use his body more to develop his core and keep him active. Just a bit heavy around 20 pounds but Its sturdy on top.
I purchased a Halo for my niece's birthday few months back and her parents have told me how they are very please with it on numerous occasions. I am glad I picked this one and will order again for the holidays.
WE RECEIVED A NICE SOLID HOVERBOARD MADE WITH REALLY GOOD TIRES. HAS SOME EXTRAS I DIDNT KNOW ABOUT LIKE THE PHONE APP AND HOW IT KEEPS TRACK OF MILES AND THE AMOUNT OF BATTERY LEFT ON THE DEVICE. MY SON DOESNT LIKE THE RUBBERS ON TOP SO HE RIDES IT WITHOUT THEM. I WILL BE ORDERING ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER NOW THAT THEY HAVE COLORS FOR GIRLS.
A) the hoverboard came on time
B) it's actually certified to be safe
C) easy to connect bluetooth. My kids. love it too much.
D) glad it's a safe certified Samsung battery that runs the hoverboard.
Halo customer service was great. They made it happen in time. Thank you!
4th day brand new my son wanted to try it on the dirt just to see how it does. Works very well! has good handling, his previous hoverboard would have never been able to do this.
COOL RIDE. DON'T EXPECT TO BE A PRO THE FIRST FEW DAYS BECAUSE THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE SIMILAR TO SNOWBOARDING.
MY BLUETOOTH IS ALWAYS ON, AND IT'S JUST A BLAST TO RIDE AT NIGHTS WITH THE LIGHTS ON.
carry bag was great and the device has worked as expected. Thx
Love this Halogo! My little girl is 9 and a half so I was always hesitant she was not ready for a hoverboard like this. I was totally wrong! It has been very easy for her to learn and honestly I think she could have handled it last year even. The color is very nice and she renamed it Haloboo.
Absolutely the BEST thing I've EVER gotten for my 10 year old girl, she's been riding it in the house and outside every day
I saw the Halo Rover on the street and was amazed how awesome it was. Two weeks since I've had mine, it's been much better than any other scooter hoverboard I've used.
The Design is top notch I dont't care how you look at it.
- Goes about 10 mph - extremely smooth when accelerating, small movements go along way.
- The tall Halo guards are not only a nice futuristic design but also great for the safety of the hoverboard and me.
- Speakers are totally awesome. Can work from far away -25ft
- Good email support team and they also have a live person to talk to over the phone.
- Carrying case has come in handy a few times already. You shoud get one if you don't have one!
- Rear blinkers are there I think in case I turn while other riders are riding behind me.
- Overall quality is impeccable.
GREAT SERVICE! NOW I UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE IN ALL THE BOARDS.
-Has UL label on bottom. This was a must!
-Kids are loving the built in bluetooth speakers.
-The bluechrome paint looks great.
-My girl can ride it, my boy can ride it, my wife can ride it, and I can kinda ride it.
-Nice lights in the front.
-Battery lasts about 2 hours.
-We have not managed to flip the hoverboard yet but I believe the side rubber things are there for protection.
-Now I have to get one for my girl.
The carry bag was not included in the box. I called the service number and they toldme a new one gonna be shipping out.
Even my husband who is rather picky with buying products online approves it.
I never write product reviews but I wanted to share my positive experience with this product. At age 9 our son doesn't have the best balance, my brother kept telling me to put him on a hoverboard to ride around every day because he believes it helps improve overall balance and equilibrium. After talking it over with my husband we decided to try this product. Our order was placed on the last weekend of Septemeber, the product arrived a few days after. The box and packaging was very neat and it also came with a manual guide, charger, and traveling case. So our son Dillian got on to the device while holding his dad's hands as they drove up and down our livingroom carpet. The very next day he told us he can do it on his own. From what I have seen in the past month, I can say it is a very safe and fun activity for teens.
Love the high quality and heavy duty durability! Was riding down my block within half an hour of use. Fast shipping too.
Initially, our 11-year-old daughter wanted a basic electric scooter. We planned on getting the one she had already picked out until
2 months ago while we were at a Electric Convention, she layed her eyes on this Halo Rover scooter and yes it was Pink!!!
She wouldn't stop talking about it for 2 weeks. Finally we placed a pre-order for the pink color and opened it a few days ago.
It was such a surprise for her she wasn't even expecting it. Both the scooter and product are marvelous.
My daughter rides it inside the house for now and it does not leave any marks on our tiles or carpet. Today I helped connect
her ipod so she can play music from her scooter. She is really happy and I'm so so satified.
Proud owner. I can see it helping people that don't have good posture for balancing.
COUPLE NOTES: 1) Beginners should wear a helmet ( just better to be safe) 2) Use a friends arm or a wall to learn how to control the board. (This should take 15 mins)
3) Once you start to stride just stay still and calm and the board will do the rest.
4) Always remember your tiniest movements can control the board.
5) It can go up to about 10 or 12 mph so you just wanna ease into it.
6) Once you learn to balance everything else is really easy.
The feeling is priceless! My granddaughter loves her new pink hoverboard.
The Halo Go has worked perfectly since the day it was delivered to my home on September 8th.
I support this device
My attempt at riding this product has not been the greatest today. It looks beautiful but at almost 70, it's gonna take some more of getting use to a transporation device like this one. The product is a heafty little thing with nice covers and lights built into the bottom.
I ordered the rover last month for my youngest brother. We take it everywhere and it is very much indestructible. He usually uses it in and out of our house and most of the time I use it on dirt races with some friends.
thanks to support my kids are really enjoying their blue and gold hoverboards.
Just received the Hoveboard yesterday and was pretty excited to try it first. Was already charged when I took it out of the box which is always a big plus. Don't order an extra hard case because they include one with the order anyways. When I pressed the power button it said "your Halo is ready to connect", now that's awesome. Soon I found out the voice prompt was for connecting the App n Bluetooth. Well, in about 10 minutes into my first riding session I swerved but did not fall, I like how it has good stability which helped keep me balanced even when I was not. My son got home and he just couldn't wait to try it, he always asked for one so I wasn't so sure if he can ride it. His weight is about 55 pounds wet, that's twice the amount of the hoverboard. I held his little hand as we went around the house and back, and without embarassment he did better than me. Today he's been hoverboarding in the house taking turns and getting very confortable with it. Wifey has yet to try it!
Tires have nice grip. I can walk my dog with ease and listen to my music from the Rover at the same time.
It has been lots of fun for my kids, especially when we're able to take both of them to fun locations like the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk (I live in DE).
We get it charged right up in 1 to 2 hours at most. I made a purchase for 2 helmets from the Dover Sports Center and in case they couldnt ride it well, but after the first day the girls didn't need them.
I am a 41 year old single mother of two girls and I recommend this gadget.
THIS THING IS SWEET! REAL SMOOTH!!
My son rides it freely now, he learned how to balance last week when he would come home from school.
Very cool! I wish I was 14 again would love to hop on it.
My son just got this for his 10th birthday. He LOVES it. He is 10 years old now so learning how to ride this was a piece of cake. It was charged full when we took it out of the box and he even connected his music right on to it. He drives it continuously in the house and says it's nice and smooth. I remember the first time he was using it, the battery lasted for about 3 hours on and off so I would say the battery is very reliable.
My daughter opened her birthday gift a whole week too early. Of course she didnt wait not even for an hour. I posted a picture of the old model I got last year for our son. The box came with a very good qualify case to carry the unit in. Rover is a much better scooter starting from the side bars that guard the board, also the width of the board and tires just a world of difference. There are also some nice features it comes with.
When I first saw this hoverboard online I thought that the quality would be good since I paid $800 for it and what I received was even better.
I just can't compare it to the cheaper $350 hoverboard I bought two months ago and just by looking at the wheels (rubber), outer shell, and plastic you can tell its very poor quality.
I only wonder what it looks like on the inside...so It sucks and makes too much noise sometimes so I don't wanna ride it and neither does my son.
Now this Rover hoverboard is a completely different story. We stand wide and have total control over it, handles very well, and turns exceptionally smooth I can even hear the thing. Holds my weight and it feels safe, you just have to no be tense and slightly move which ever direction you want to go towards.
Of course my son rides it with the music on as he goes up and down our street.
It has been a good experience so far for a father and a child to do something different together. Just amazing how it gets their brain working...he asks me how they made this possible and so easy.
Works good, wanted next day shipping
IF YOU NEED A GREAT WORKING HOVERBOARD THIS IS THE ONE TO GO WITH. OURS CAME WITH BLUETOOTH SO THE GIRLS USE IT FOR MUSIC ALL THE TIME. WE ONLY NEED TO CHARGE IT FOR 1 HOUR AND TAKE IT TO FOR LONG RIDES ON THE BEACH WALK AT MYRTLE BEACH OR JUST OUR FAMILY PARK. THEY HAVE WORKED SO WELL THAT MY PARENTS PURCHASED A FEW FOR MY NEPHEWS. NOW MY SISTER AND I TAKE ALL THE KIDS TOGETHER.
I ordered a Halo Go last week to be shipped to NY as a gift for my niece. Her mom called me yesterday to let me know she loves it. I would like to thank the assistant who helped me choose the right one for her since she just turned 9 years of age.
Weekend birthday gift went well. He's very thankful.
I M a forever customer. I was treated with respectful and patience. The delivery was fast
This hover board looks great - the gold is a good choice. Our kidos are having lots of fun riding it, and it doesn't take that long to learn how to use it. It nice that they can play music from it also.
Is this amazing or what? Never would I have ever imagined something close to the movie Back to the Future and its Hoverboard would be seen in my lifetime. The first time I noticed them was earlier this year but decided to wait until better quality hoverboards were released. I ended up purchasing two of them for my twin granddaughters just as a surprise, they are my heart and joy. I kept them here until they came to visit last weekend, I video tapped while they opened the boxes...nothing but priceless expressions. Another amazing thing I discovered was that they used the hoverboards like they have owned them for years in just minutes. Looking at them makes me as happy as a child.
First time I called they say the white one was sold out so I waited 2 weeks an ordered mines online. The (white) Rover showed up at my place. Why was it sold out? My girl likes it but I could have got the thing sooner. Besides all that my girl likes it too much, always tellin me its the best gift ever. It does look very nice :)
Its awesome to experience the hover effect once you learn to lean and go.
Runs very smooth
Goes about 10mph or so
You can stop on a dime
I did hit the board hard a few times and lost my front rubber protectors, but was easy to replace.
Speakers are awesome but if you play music for a long time you will start draining the battery.
It's a fun device. I couldn't get the hang of it at first, but my 9 year old little girl was riding all over the place
like that the hover board charges in about 2 hours
nice to hook up music on it
appears well made
mines came with a black halo carrying bag
my kids are rolling in n out of the home. my husband an I have yet to give it a go at it
Comes from a reputable company I can trust, not only is it certified and everything but my kids are loving self-balancing rover hoverboard.
Very durable and quality is great! I also ordered two of the regular Halo Go hoverboards but if I had to do it all over again I would probably get 3 rovers instead.
Let me start by saying that the first time I tried a hoverboard was a year ago in NY. It was okay but I can tell that it was kinda cheapy type of material.
When I saw the new rover, I decided to get it, because I felt more comfortable with bigger wheels. I must admit that I felt very comfortable with it very quickly amost as if my body and the entire unit are together as one. There are some additional cool features on the app that my wife likes. She likes to play music from her phone on the board and she really like to use it on the beginner mode rather than the regular or advanced.
The ride itself is very quiet and smooth on all surfaces. I used it to get to worked, and the battery life lasts a good while. I used it a least for about an hour, and it still had at least %45 left.
To get it fully charged, I had it plugged for 2 hours. You need to avoid big holes on the ground really high bumps, however I realized, that you get the hang of it pretty quickly after using it the first few hours. At the end of the day, I knowthat I got my money's worth. I'm using a Halo Rover, it's approved by UL, backed by a great reputable company and its safe to use.
Had it shipped to my office. Will be hiding it here until mid December.
At our doorstep this morning only took 2 days for delivery. So far I have no complaints because it looks terrific.
Beautiful device! We bought one for our son a week before his birthday. I don't know if kids these days are super fast learners or the smart device is a breeze to learn. Definitely a great gift from a great brand. My husband rides it around also just to show off to the kids, but they are way better at it.
This has been a perfect after school activity. He rides the Halo everywhere.
A+ packing when doing the box opening. will be back again
Reasons why I bought this board...and why I think its the very best.
1 Great customer service experience. He was also very knowledgeable about the overall products.
2 The product comes with a safety certificate attached to it. It is an actual real UL from UL themselves, trust me I checked all the details inside and out. Call me paranoid but Id rather be safe.
3 Has a wireless speaker built right into the board. My daughter also plays music sometimes while she rides inside and outside of the house.
4 The charger is UL certified as well. This was another big deal for me.
5 A nice carrying case was provided. Its strong and has a good handle.
6 Battery is UL Certified Samsung. I will not buy a non-brand Chinese battery.
7 My daughters rides really well on it and she says its easy and smooth.
Its just a smooth joy ride. I am amazed at how far scooter hoverboards have come since the first one I bought for one of the kids. Have no complains oh thanks for the extra case.
Fun board if you like snowboarding or kinda like surfing. It rides very smooth due to it's self balancing feature. Its even more fund while riding at night and you have the lights on.
There are bluetooth speakers right under the board.
The product looks solid and well made. I feel like I can jump on it with my full weight and nothing will happen.
Reputable company with good service. They were helpful and answered to my emails on time.
FOUND WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR "THE SAFEST HOVERBOARD" SHE REALLY LOVES THIS COLOR
impressive tires / works extremely well
This review is based on the product's appearance and color. It was purchased last week for a gift and hasn't been used yet.
My neice wanted a pink color one so I assumed that's what I purchased.
I opened the box and saw a gorgeous bright sparkling pink, even better than I imagened. Very exciting!!
My nephew is still learning how to use it but the great smile on his face gives me great joy.
We got this model-rover and it seems like it won't respond too well due to our 5 yr old who's 38 pounds. I emailed support and was informed the minimum weight is about 44 pounds and that he must wear shoes. It appears to be good quality from the look and weight of it.
Our kids have been on full joy mode ever since they opened the box.
I really hope you can do better than fedex my shipping was 2 days late. The halo works good.
I faced a challenge when selecting the right brand with real actual safety certifications. As a father of a (10,14) year olds safety is my main concern. This is the exact reason I ended up getting Halo Gos for them. I called/emailed many different brands and read all about them. Most of them just gave me a runaround or were very poor with service. I contacted this company early October and I received all the information I needed which I just couldn't get anywhere else. I even went as far as asking for the safety certification which they provided me and it really was on the actually UL website. I am very happy and satisfied with my orders.
Key notes about this product
- The products are UL-2272 and UL-2271 certified
- Body holds lots of weight. I stood on it myself and it felt good. I weight 183 by the way.
- Battery (Samsung) lasts a very long time. It charges very fast also.
- The colors really pop out so the kids like it
- Bluetooth speakers work very well but you cannot walk away from the unit more than maybe 20 feet or so or else the music may cut off.
- Maximum speed is about 9 mph which is perfect
- The rubbers on top of the unit are very important especially if you have a son like mine who likes to try some tricks on it.
You have good customer service. A wonderful customer representative named Kevin, assisted me with my grandson's gift. He was very happy and I thank you.
The hoverboard I ordered for my 12 year old son came in perfect condition. Packed very well. So far it has been workin great! Color looks 1000 times better in person.
We received this last night. I got it for my 13 yr old who's about 140lbs. This unit moves well on asphalt, grass, and indoors. Really safe to use.
I love to snowboard and have been doing it since a kid and when I came across a Halo Board on the street I was amazed how awesome it was. When I received the board from Halo Board which was certified for safety, I was curious and after trying it for over a week now, I have noted my observations below:
- Top speed of 10 mph - smooth & simple acceleration, drift corners with ease! just lean forward or back to go forward or reverse
- The Halo lights around the board are insane ( especially at nights )
- Bluetooth works really well even when your not o the board
- Took me 20 mins to learn to ride
- Shift body weight side to side to master cornering at high speeds
- Great warranty US based customer support
- For startes you I would recommend to wear a helmet and wrist guards as if you were to learn how to ride a skateboard.
- Step 1: Truly important to read the instructions on the manual
- Step 2: Charge the board completely before use
- Step 3: Green light on charger itself indicates that the unit is fully charged
- Step 4: Ride only outside and not indoors
- Step 5: Watch out and make sure not to use it on obstacles or non-smooth surfaces
- Step 6: Step the dominant foot on the board and hold then the second
- Step 7: For beginners on to a persons shoulder for support until you have learned how to balance and ride.

I love this board as its awesomely fun once the learning phase is done. After 16+days, its been fund an safe to use.
Based on my expectations and needs, this is just an awesome product. Please assess needs and expectations before buying this great product.
The smile I got from my daughter was priceless. She is 10 and my husband and I didn't want to get one because we saw people fall or not know how to ride it. We tested and got advice from several friends who had already purchased a Halo hoverboard for their kids.
It seems this brands units are a little more stable and it feels more sturdier. Besides the ability to play music while she rides around, the best feature is for safety in my opinion since it will beep when she hits max speed telling her to slow down.
Always been a skater so I wanted a different feel. The H board is cool in its own way. Took me about 20-30 mins to get it all down. Easy to ride once you pass the initial stages just find the right balance and no leg work needed really. I'm a fast rider and I wish I bought the Extreme version rather than the normal one. The lights that glow are really dope cuz my board just stands out and looks out of the world. Should ride on smooth pavement and roads for better handling. Peace!
I am not a scooter expert but I will tell you my kids are obsessed over both their gifts.
The design is on top of the game that's for sure. Easy for my kids to ride around in n out of the house. I tried it last night it's very very stable and feels soft/smooth when maneuvering around. The battery is excellent lasted all night as well took turns riding it inside the house.
Have been using the HALO for the last few weeks now, the quality of the paint finish is really superior (this was important for my kid). As for me the durability an safety were my biggest concerns. When they asked me to get one of these I heard some stories so I did some digging. What I found was if your board don't come with a high quality Samsung battery you in trouble. To add to that I called Underwriters Laboratories and made sure that this company's products was fully tested and passed the safety guidelines. I was very happy with the findings. The HALO has worked very well and I will get one more soon for my other son.
I placed the order 4 weeks ago, The first time I saw it I was blown away how awesome it really looks and rides. My son and daughter love it and use it everyday. The amount spent is well worth it since having a hoverboard from before, this one blows them away by a mile just by the quality of it starting from the big oversized wheels and the secure carrying case.
Finally found the chrome pink color that my little girl been begging us for. She already knew how to use it and as soon as she got on she was doing spins and everything. She keeps saying its the best gift ever. It was kind of a bummer since the box did not have a carry bad inside so when I called the 800 number they shipped one out the next day and we got it yesterday. I'm just happy its safe and secure for her.
I live in Austin Texas an got the board a couple weeks ago. I would definitely recommend it, had a little issue with one of the bottom rubbers i think it was after awhile of riding etc. but after dealing with their good customer service i got a new one to replace it, great company overall and product!!
It's very stable and smooth to ride. Its nice a must have for cruising around the beach and promenade.
Very pleased with this product. Lots of research was done after hearing so much about the hoverboard problems in the past. Halo offers a great warranty. From the research I did it seems that Halo made sure they passed all US UL requirements The company wanted to be sure that those who invested in this product, would not have to worry about the issues of the past. The robotic balancing response on this product make it very easy to learn. I love the rubber fender pads it comes with so that when my kids play with it at least it has extra protection for the really shinny blue finish.
It has worked exactly how it should. A second charger was needed because we always take the boards to the grandmas place.
I am a grandfather of 6 grandchildren so I ordered two of these for them to enjoy when they come to visit. Unfortunately they fight over it and take them home. It is a superb product for kids and teens to enjoy. Unfortunately I am too old to try them.
This hoverboard is a total beast! It is very sturdy, my brother is 240 pounds and the hoverboard help up real good. My boys got the hang of it in just minutes. Delivered in a timely manner (3days)
I would give it 10 stars!! My 9 year old has banged the unit a few places, and it works perfect! I also receieved a carry-bag which comes in handy from time to when we take the hoverboard to the beach walk.
Our hoverboard has worked amazing so far. We had also purchased one on Amazon 2 months ago which turned out to be a complete disaster. My kids are happy, the unit holds very good charge, and best of all it fire safe certified.
Outstanding looking design. We got this for our son's 15th birthday. I took a look at it today before he opens it tomorrow. He's gonna got nuts over this.
Wow this thing is amazing I am a student at University of Florid and it is definitely fun getting from one class to the other. Battery is good. All in all took abouts 2 days to learn the balancing and carving.
I truly love my Rover, so much that I ride it to the mall and on campus now especially since it have a GPS app I can use. My parents gave me the money to to order it so I'm very thankful. It does really well on bumps and other riding surfaces. I don;t alway have the bluetooth turned on but when i do it works really good.
Y'all makin nice things...keep it up.
This blue little fella is awesome! Halo also has perfect customer service. I called to ask a few questions and I received real answers from a real person. Our son was thrilled on Sunday.
Just an excellent device. Far more practical than I expected it to be, I ride this halo nearly every day. Recommended for flat, smooth areas. Long battery life. I've used it for months with no maintenance yet.
Wonderful service by Halo Company and the product is built with great quality could not have ask for better I'm very happy.
This got to be the best hoverboard type of thing out there. Our family can attest because we have had 5 different ones. It rdes over grass and bumps extremely well makes the others look useless. Built like a tank and its for anyone in the family, even my wife uses it at times.
We bought it for my daughter's birthday next week. She's going to be so surprised! my husband opened and checked everything out and he said its great quality.
I purchased gold and pink hoverboards back from Halo Go and it has brought lots of active fun experience for our family. We take the hoverboards to the beach walk in the Laguna Beach area and ride with our kids. Just happy and releaved that this helps our kids get off the couch and Ipads and be out of the house. I never post reviews but I felt that I should given the fact we have had a great deal of positive experiences with this companies products.
Love this hoverboard it's amazing! I take my dog on walks with this and it's great! I charge it every 2 days or so.
Both boards work extremely well, although, one does seem to have a dip in the middle, maybe a loose foot rest. I don't know.
My 10 year old son loves his fireproof hover board! He is on it all day indoors and out. The company has great customer service! They email you back right away and are very helpful.
Our initial purchase was for 3 of them for our 3 kids ages ranging from 9 to 16. The only negative was that one of them did not come fully charged upon delivery. My son realized this and quickly plugged it in and within 1 hour he was riding around the neighborhood. It has now been over a month and all 3 hoverboards works really well.
My 11 year old son did extensive research on which Hoverboard to purchase. He decided on this particular board because it had very good safety ratings and had never been recalled. I also did some checking around and found that it is on the UL listing website for safety certified hoverboards. We are very pleased and will purchase from Halo Go again.
