Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Jan 24, 2017 - The popular and fast growing website, TechGearLab, has just wrapped up in-depth testing and reviewing of the top hoverboard models of 2016. Eight contenders were selected to undergo the rigorous testing process to see which models were at the top of their game. A team of expert reviewers put their heads together to devise creative and objective methods by which they thoroughly analyzed each prototype. One such method was obstacle courses, in which the models were evaluated for top speeds on the straightaway as well as the ability to handle varying types of terrain. Additionally, each item was weighed, assessed for Bluetooth connectivity and other capabilities, and investigated in terms of color options and customer service support. The machines lapped the course at least three times to provide an average score for factors such as range and speed and then the testers quantified and weighed in their personal experiences regarding ease of use and enjoyment. After marking and ranking each product, a full review was written for each board in addition to an overall comparative review.
The winners are as follows:
Editors’ Choice – Swagtron T3
Scoring highest overall, the T3 took home the coveted Editors’ Choice award. Reviewers concurred it was the most enjoyable to use, due to its desirable blend of speed, stability, and agility. This model features built-in Bluetooth speakers, which makes the ride that much more fun! Testers loved the fact that “This model allows you to do quick, snappy turns without being too concerned about crashing, as well as has the power to keep up with you through rapid direction changes.”
BestBuy – Swagtron T1
In terms of value, the T1 earned this honor without a doubt; it’s reasonably priced, a riot to ride, and makes no compromises in regards to quality. This model scored highest of all contenders in the battery life tests and is also armored with Swagways’ excellent customer service. Overall, the review team felt that “This board forgoes the fluff that you don’t need, but still offers all the performance you do need to be happy with your investment.”
Top Pick – Segway miniPro
The miniPro took home Top Pick for its unique design and smooth ride. Reviewers found that it seems drastically different than its fellow competitors: “Utilizing an entirely different steering mechanism, this model has 10.5″ pneumatic wheels to absorb bumps and cracks, and has the longest range with an unparalleled battery life.” Additionally, it features some distinct add-ons including an anti-theft alarm and a telescoping handle, making it especially equipped for commuters.
