Best Self Balancing Scooters Reviews – [TOP 20 in 2015-2016]

This is our TOP 20 with the best self balancing scooters on the market right now. We analized the most popular items on the market plus newest/upgraded models and we think this TOP 20 reflects 90% of the best self balancing scooters. We made this Top because we realized that is really hard to find useful and accurate review information about which are the best models, which is the best price or where can you buy them.

If you are interested in buying a self balancing scooter just continue to read this article. If you want to skip the “information zone” and go directly to our chart just scroll down to this page…But our recommendation is to read the whole article because you will understand how we created this top and how we rated all the products. This will help you to choose the best self balancing scooter based on your needs.

What should you know before going directly to our TOP 20 Best Self Balancing Scooters chart ?

This is probably one of the hottest products of 2015 which became viral because they are so much fun. Also many celebrities had one and they posted themselves with those self balancing scooters everywhere, on tv, on facebook, on twitter, instagram or youtube.

You should know that before doing this chart we analized all the forums, we read hundreds of reviews on amazon.com and ebay.com and we even tested few models ourselves so this TOP 20 reviews is very detailed and express our very objective opinion.

These are the main criterias we used to review all the self balancing scooters:

  1. BatteryThis is one of the most important criterias we used in our chart. The battery is esential because this represents actually at least 50% of the scooter’s quality. When we are talking about battery quality we are actually talking about things like: charging time, driving range, life cycles, battery brand, capacity and other things like that.
  2. Material: We decided to use “material” as one of the main criterias because most of the problems we found in all amazon and ebay reviews were problems related to very poor quality material. A lot of users were complaining about some pieces falling apart or in some cases the material cracked in contact with hard ground. You should know that 50-60% of the self balancing scooters are made from different kinds of plastic but there are some scooters made from a metal alloy which is much better.
  3. Design: This is probably the most subjective criteria because everyone can like a different color or model. Anyway we decided to give a better rate to those scooters with multiple colors and models.
  4. Driving range: The “driving range” means the total number of miles(kilometres) a self balancing scooter can run after a full battery charge. You will see below in our TOP/Best Self Balancing Scooters Chart that the driving range varies from 6(low quality models) to 15-20 miles(better models). Very important to know is that the driving range depends a lot on rider’s weight, road conditions and other things like that. The driving range values you will find in our chart are the values for an average rider’s weight and in normal road conditions. For example if you weight more than 200lbs(90kgs) and you drive the scooter on rain you should expect a shorter driving range.
  5. Special features: This criteria is a very important one because in most of the cases the price depends a lot on the special features a self balancing scooter has. We are talking about features like: remote key, bluetooth, speakers, free carrying bag included, protective gears for safety included and other stuff like that. A self balancing scooter which has more special features will get of course a better rating.
  6. Amazon rating: This criteria does not depend on us. This is actually the Amazon Rating of the products which is obtained after tens or hundreds of reviews. This is a great criteria to help you in deciding which product is better for your needs.
  7. Value for money: This criteria depends a lot on product price, products quality and product features. For example a product with same quality and features like other products, if the product has a better price then the product will have a better rating also. “Value for money” is probably the most important criteria because represents a cumulation of other small criterias and the product price as well.

These are the 7 most important criterias we used to rate the TOP 20 Best Self Balancing Scooters on the market right now.

Now you can scroll down to our TOP 20 Chart and choose the self balancing scooter you like the most.

  • If you decide choose a self balancing scooter which doesn’t include a carrying bag we strongly recommend to buy one. Don’t forget that a product like this weighs more than 20 pounds/lbs(10kgs). You can buy a carrying bag from here
  • Also if you want to buy a self balancing scooter for a kid we recommend you to buy a full Protective Gear Kit. You can find some kits here

Other useful info about self balancing scooters:

Why are these self balancing scooters so popular ?!

Like we said at the beggining of this article, this kind of product got a huuuge news coverage in the first part of this year. For example they wrote even in the NyTimes.com about this new invention and you probably already knew that people like Chris Brown, Nick Jonas, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Soulja Boy, Zedd, Kendall Jenner, Wiz Khalifa, Nina Agdal, David Ortiz, Karim Benzema or Skrillex have this kind of gadget and they are the one who made it seem so cool.

Short history about self balancing scooter.

This gadget was actually originally called two-wheeled scooter and was created by Inventist which is an american tech company.  They began a Kickstarter Top 20 Best Self Balancing Scooterscampaign in 2012 and the product was launch for sale in 2014. Their gadget is now called Hovertrax but we do not recommend their product just because now is very very expensive and still cost $1,495 exactly like 2 years ago. Since they launched their gadget in 2014 a lot of other companies made much better versions of their product with a lot of new and great features like bluetooth, speakers, remote key and others.

Why do you call this product self balancing scooter ? I found this gadget under other names.

Like we said above, after the product was launched in 2014 a lot of companies made new and better versions of this gadget and they branded this product using different kind of names like: Drifting Board, Smart Wheel, Two Wheeled Scooter, Smart Balance Scooter, Hoverboard, PhunkeeDuck, IO Hawk, Monorover, Future Foot, Swagway and a lot of other names. Anyway, Self Balancing Scooter is the most used term to describe this gadget so that’s why we are using this name too.

Where are the scooters made ?!

Well…even though you may find that some companies are saying their products are made in USA you need to know that they are wrong. They may deliver the product from USA but this doesn’t mean they are fabricating the self balancing scooters in USA also. Actually 95% of all smart scooters on the US market right now are made in China. We struggled a lot to find at least one model made in USA but the price were so high ($1000+) so we decided not to include it in our TOP.

So if you are seeing a company who says their product is US made and the price is below $1000 you can be almost 99% that they are lying. You shouldn’t care anyway if the product is made in China. Most of the products we decided to review have excelent quality. The only problem with “Made in China” products is that they deliver the products directly from China so sometimes you may need to wait up to 1-2 weeks. You should know that we included a few models in our TOP which are shipped directly from USA which is great because the delivery should take less than 1 week. Just check our TOP again.
