What happens when one of the most prestigious car manufacturers in the world teams up with a prestigious electronics gadget manufacturer with the sole aim of creating the best hoverboard in the world.
The Lamborghini hoverboard is born.
This new hoverboard is created by TwoDots and officially licensed by Lamborghini. It boasts a sleek 8.5-inch “off-road” wheel as well as BlueTooth speakers (that’s right, you can play your favorite songs through the hoverboard)
Before we dive in-depth on this hoverboard, we need to clear up some facts
- The hoverboards itself are not made by the Lamborghini car company, they are made by an electronics and gadget company called Two Dots. They partnered up and obtained the license from Lamborghini to produce these hoverboards in the liking of their world-renowned supercars.
- There are two Lamborghini Hoverboards Models.
They are the 6.5-inch wheel model and the 8.5-inch wheel model (which is featured in the video above). They are somewhat similar but each has its pros and cons that make them appealing to certain subsets of customers.
We shall explore these pros and cons, as well as unique features, common FAQs and other important information you need to know about the Lamborghini hoverboard today.
Without wasting much time, let’s dive in
This model is a perfect hoverboard for kids. It is relatively smaller than the 8-inch version and less “rugged”. It is best ridden on smooth surfaces and smooth roads, riding this hoverboard on rough terrains like grass or sand isn’t the best of experiences.
It is quite fast (and don’t worry you can set a speed limit on it from the mobile app so you can be sure your kid isn’t going too fast) and made of high-quality plastic.
The hoverboard is highly durable so you don’t have to worry about replacing your hoverboard anytime soon. It also comes with a warranty plan so you can always return it if you are not satisfied with it.
Like I said earlier, this model is geared more towards kids and lighter adult. The maximum recommending loading for the 6.5-inch model is 165lbs. So if you’re above this weight, I recommend you take a look at the 8.5-inch model (which is my personal favorite)
What we love about this hoverboard is its luxurious design, it definitely looks like the Lamborghini of hoverboards, making other hoverboards look pale in comparison. Another amazing move Two dots & Lambo made was to produce 3 different color options for the 6.5-inch Lambo hoverboard. When on the amazon product page you will see that it comes in 3 distinctive colors;
- Jet Black
- Neon Green
- Golden Yellow
The Lamborghini 6.5 Inch Off-road hoverboard is UL2272 certified. You might be thinking, what is a UL2272 certification?
In layman’s terms, the UL2272 is a U.S. certification awarded to electrical mobility devices that have met the standards of a comprehensive system of safety tests. The testing parameters include both electrical and mechanical components as well as environmental aspects to assess electrical safety. To further explain, the assessment takes into account how resistant the devices are against impact, extreme temperatures, water exposure and other factors. Under these conditions, signs of short circuiting and imbalance charging would indicate a possibility of fire and therefore deemed as less than ideal in level of electrical safety.Excerpt from mobot.sg

LAMBORGHINI 8.5 Inch Off-road Hoverboard
The Lamborghini hoverboard 8.5-inch model is something out of this world. It has a 400W motor, a comfortable max speed of 9.3 miles per hour and is built with expert design. It’s sleek, it’s fast and it goes with the car in your garage. (Hopefully).
This model is aimed more at adults and larger kids and picks up where the 6.5-inch model left off. It comes with a higher max speed, bigger battery a higher weight capacity. This hoverboard can bear up to 264 pounds (120 kg).
Design and Build Quality
The 8.5-inch hoverboard looks and feels like a Lamborghini, it is made with a high-end plastic shell covering, this makes it relatively lighter than it would have been otherwise but this does come with its own disadvantage. The plastic shell can get scratched pretty easily so it is recommended you get the basics down and get comfortable using the hoverboard before you start trying out your insane stunts.
Rubber Cushioned Foot Pads
This hoverboard also features a rubber cushion footpad which grip your shoes like hooks onto the sole of your feet (I don’t mean that literally). Basically, it ensures there is enough friction between your foot and the hoverboard so as to prevent you from slipping off.
8.5″ Big Solid Tires
The hoverboard comes with an impressive 8.5″ solid tires. Not only is this the perfect height for riding, it can also withstand almost all terrains, you can ride it indoors, you can ride it outdoors, you can ride it on the sand, you can ride it on grass but it did have a bit trouble riding on wet slippery ground (so put that in mind). Because of the larger size of the wheels, the hoverboard is capable of running smoothly even when there are holes and cracks in the way. All in all, I’ll give it 4.8 over 5 on its versatility, you’ll have no problem riding this hoverboard almost anywhere.
Aesthetic LED Headlights
With beautiful led lights modeled after the iconic Lamborghini Huracan, your Lamborghini hoverboard will be sure to make heads turn. Aside from its cool look, it does its job perfectly, it can light up your way at night so you don’t go riding into a trash can or something. (Did I mention how cool these headlights look)
