It’s all the rage! Don’t get copies or be fooled though, look at the Swagway X-1 Hands Free Smart Board and know you’re getting the best! If you’ve visited a college campus lately, you’ll notice that a lot of the kids (especially the athletes), are strolling around on their hoverboards (not quite like the ones in ‘Back to the Future’ because these have wheels.) It’s a pretty nifty idea to spin on an electric step that will go up to 10 miles per hour to get to your classes on time. It also takes some stamina and balance!

The aluminum wheels with the rubber tires are the best of both worlds. They both look super cool and they make the board very comfortable. The battery charges very quickly. The body casing is very solid and it looks sharp no matter what color you decide to choose. I wish the battery would last a little longer- 6 hours is not much when you take it to classes and use it all day. I also wish that the board had a longer warranty. One year for an expensive product doesn’t seem like much, although I will say that you have the option of purchasing an extended warranty. I just wish the extended warranty came with the board, as I didn’t have the money to pay for the extended one. I can however, get the extended warranty any time within the year I purchased it if I just go back to the store.
This is a very well built board which can go fairly fast when you want it to. It’s eco-friendly and it gets you from point A to point B without having to drive a car. It’s very cool, and it’s a really neat sensation to ride it. It’s like you’re floating. The board itself has a very attractive design and some great colors to choose from. This is a high quality board and you can expect it to last a long time.
The maximum capacity for this board is 220lbs. Many boards on the market go up to 250. There are a LOT of football players at my school who use these, but by the same token, there are a LOT of football players who weigh over 220 lbs. I wish they’d make one that would handle more capacity. I wish it would go a little bit faster, and I wish the battery lasted a little longer. Maybe at some point Swagway X-1 Hands Free Smart Board will create a longer lasting battery and a board that can hold more weight. The price is fairly high, however you get what you pay for. I had purchased two off-brand boards and both of them were disastrous. One actually broke in half the first time I stepped on it, and I weigh 177bs. I was very glad I sent both of the other boards back and wound up with this one as it’s very durable and it works well.
The Bottom Line
Swagway X-1 Hands Free Smart Board is a very nice, durable board. It’s fairly fast, it’s durable, and it’s easy to catch your balance. It’s environmentally safe and it’s also comes in beautiful colors to choose from. It’s cool to watch and cool to ride. I enjoy taking mine while walking the dog, or meandering about on campus. It does wonders for your quads and your calve muscles as you have to clench and use those parts of your body every day. My muscles in my legs are definitely getting bigger and more defined.
These aren’t for everyone. I would say these types of boards are mainly for a younger generation. You can do pretty cool tricks and you can either look very cool, or like a complete dork depending on if you know what you’re doing. If you’re one of the ones like me who definitely doesn’t know what to do- fake it. It may work until you get used to riding the board.
This board is a very cool idea for someone who lives in a densely populated city where public transit is a way of life. This will save time and money- just be sure to yell at folks who are getting in your way!
