Quick TGR Review Summary
What I like
- Great for kids and those starting out
- LED features
- Bluetooth capabilities
- Price tag was comparable to other hoverboards in the market with similar features
- Variety color and designs
What I don’t like
- The tires had a really strong odor, which took a week before it faded away
One of the eye catching thing about the Hover-1 Chrome 2.0 Electric Hoverboard are the LED Lights, Bluetooth Speaker and modern aesthetic design! When the rider is moving, the lights will blink and change colors. Even the sound from the Bluetooth speaker is great. Though, we did noticed that the Bluetooth signal will start to fade after 30 feet. So make sure you keep your music Bluetooth device near by. One other thing to note, is the sound isn’t that loud. This is likely more of a safety feature, so the rider can focus more on their surroundings and where they are going.
With 6.5 inch wheels, it can allow travel up to 6.07 miles at a maximum speed of 6.21 miles per hour. With smaller wheels, it’s made for flat terrains, and not rough terrains or steep inclines. Although, any hills up to 10 degree inclines will be within suitable range.
One minor annoyance, was the tires gave off a really strong rubber odor. It took about a week before the smell started to fade. Its best to keep the Hoverboard in a well ventilated area before bringing it inside the home for long term storage.

The Hover-1 Chrome 2.0 Electric Hoverboard would be perfect for anyone looking for a quality hoverboard and is starting to learn how to use one. An advance rider would likely seek a hoverboard model with higher speed capabilities and can go longer distance.
The Hover-1 Chrome 2.0 hoverboard was within a decent budget range and included a lot of main features which other higher priced hoverboards had.
We gifted this to a six year old, who within a week, with proper supervision, was comfortable to ride independently.
