The Swagtron T6 Hoverboard is one of the best models we have reviewed. It combines great top speed with convincing range and build quality into a hoverboard that is a viable option for both commuters and thrill-seekers. On top of that, it has best-in-class off-road performance.
Please enjoy the following review of the Swagtron T6 Hoverboard.
Performance – Swagtron T6
Many hoverboards disappoint in terms of speed, such as the Gotrax Edge. Not this one!
The Swagtron Swagboard T6 can go pretty fast, reaching a top speed of 12 mph.
Hence, you never have to worry about reaching your destination in time. You also don’t have to worry about bikes or runners overtaking you.
If 12 mph are too fast for you, no worries either – you can choose to ride in Eco mode in order to slow things down.
The Swagtron T6 comes with an outstanding total range as well. It can take you as far as 12 miles on a single charge. Considering the small nature of such a hoverboard, I find this quite impressive.
To make sure that you always know how much charge you have left, there are battery indicators on top of the hoverboard right next to the feet.
The way that the Swagtron T6 Hoverboard deals with inclines is very impressive as well.
According to Swagtron, it manages to go up 30 degrees of inclination. Not 30 percent but 30 degree! Yes, there is a significant difference.
This basically means that you will be able to drive up any hill in front of you. Knowing that you won’t ever have to carry your hoverboard up a hill is very comforting.
Despite already delivering impressive stats in the previous chapters, off-road riding performance is where the Swagtron T6 impresses the most.
This hoverboard was specifically constructed for off-roading, which means that you can ride through any terrain without a problem. Even if it is rainy and muddy – no problem.
This is especially due to its massive and sturdy 10″ air-filled wheels, as well as the powerful motor.
Riding Modes – Swagtron T6
Depending on your level of expertise in riding hoverboards as well as your current mood you can easily adjust the Swagtron T6 riding mode by holding the power button.
In Learning Mode, you will ride with reduced velocity. This allows you to travel further as well as more comfortably.
In Standard Mode, you already unlock the maximum speed of 12 mph.
The difference in Advanced Mode is that you can reach this top speed faster – meaning that the acceleration is greater. Also, it registers the direction changes much more sensibly, allowing you to ride more dynamically.
Being UL2272 approved, the Swagtron T6 grants a high level of safety. This means that this hoverboard has passed various rigorous safety tests, and you can be sure that it will never catch fire.
The patented Swagtron Sentryshield technology provides absolutely reliable protection for both the battery and the mainboard from any kinds of issues. An additional Smart Battery Management System maximizes the protection from overheating, overvoltage, overcharging, overcurrent and short circuiting.
In order to be registered well and correctly by other traffic participants, 4 LED movement indicators are integrated into the hoverboard. They signal when you are starting, stopping and turning.
System indicators next to the feet also notify you when the hoverboard enters self-balancing mode or if something is wrong, for example with the battery.
Another safety feature are the non-slip pedals with maximum traction. They make sure you never fall off the hoverboard mid-ride.
Additionally, footguards between your feet and the wheels ease your mind about potentially touching a wheel while riding.
Portability: Weight & Dimensions
Boasting above mentioned specs and being an off-road specialist, it is no wonder that the Swagtron T6 Hoverboard is kind of heavy. It weighs a bit more than 30 pounds: 30.55 lb.
This diminishes its portability.
However, built-in aluminum handles make sure that you can grab and carry it easily.
This is a new feature in comparison with its predecessor models!
Through bluetooth, you can connect your Swagtron T6 Hoverboard to your smartphone.
In the Swagtron App, you will be able to see all kinds of ride statistics and the battery charge.
You are also able to play music, because the T6 comes with speakers. Blast your music while riding around, how cool is that?!
Water and Dust Resistance
The Swagtron T6 has a water and dirt resistance rating of IPX4.
This means that all the valuable interior of the hoverboard is protected against splashes of water or dirt trying to make an entry.
However, this does not mean that you should, for whatever reason, submerge the whole device under water.
The frame of the Swagtron T6 is made from ABS polymers, which is an especially durable form of plastic, and aluminum.
This allows for a total weight capacity of a mind-boggling 420 lb! Feel free to carry heavy baggage around riding your hoverboard.
This durable construction also allows the T6 to be such a great off-road hoverboard.
Construction – Swagtron T6
The wheels play a major part in making this hoverboard an all-terrain vehicle.
They are 10 inches wide, filled with air (as opposed to solid), aluminum-rigged and hence incredibly rugged.
Additionally, they are treaded to allow rides through all kinds of undergrounds.
All Swagtron devices use premium quality lithium-ion batteries and this one here is no exception.
The best part about it is that it charges in only 2-3h and provides an extensive range of up to 12 miles!
In the “Safety” chapter we already mentioned the implemented safety measures “Sentryshield” and “Battery Management System” that protect the battery from any malfunction or safety issue.
Responsible for this hoverboard’s awesome performance is the 300W dual-motor system. It can take you through virtually any terrain, up 30 degree inclines and will not be too noisy while doing so.
The Swagtron T6 Hoverboards boasts front and rear color-coded LED lights. Depending on the current riding action of yours, they adjust their color.
When you accelerate and ride normally, they shine blue and illuminate the way in front of you.
Should you be braking, they shine bright red, alerting anyone around – and especially behind – you.
When you are changing directions, i.e. going left or right, the corresponding side will flash a green light.
