It is very obvious that it’s a buying guide to the advertised hoverboard. Previously we have never heard of these brands at the start the of hoverboard story,and now these brands come out like new grasses grew out after the spring rain and show up. Those products of these brands above is all imported from the same China factory. Use a not very advanced OEM technology to paste different brand tags on the scooter to be different brands and delivery them to market.

However, we found something new about the conception of a hoverboard, in this buying guide, ZBoard a four wheeled scooter is mentioned. F-wheel company likes this idea and is going to manufacture it soon. As far as the CEO of F-wheel Company concerned, ZBoard is too expensive to be popular.

Number Nine Fake Hoverboard buying guide to avoid: Wired

This buying guide talks about the following three questions:

“Where Can I Buy One?
How Much Is it Going to Cost?
Which Ones Are the Safest?”

Number Eight Fake Hoverboard buying guide to avoid: Techtimes

In this buying guide, you’ll see three tips which is mostly copied from Wired we mentioned above:Purchase Hoverboards from Quality Brands
“Purchase Hoverboards from Quality Brands

Know the Price;

Read Customer Reviews;
Stay safe on your hoverboards!”

These are exactly right tips that everyone knows. However,knowing it doesn’t mean you will buy a high quality hoverboard. Judging with the price will lead to deeper damage to you. You pay more when get the same product. And the customer reviews can be faked when there is professional company help to do this on amazon or any other company. By the way, F-wheel is a company has been selling hoverboard for over one year and over fiver thousand self balancing scooter has been sold when none of its product has been reported about the safety problems. Brand F-wheel is trusted by mass people with its high quality & low price products. As an excellent manufacturer in self balancing board field, F-wheel is selling products itself without the agents. So the price is cut down. When you have the outstanding selling ability, being a wholesaler is profitable as well.

Number Seven Fake Hoverboard buying guide to avoid: UStoday

Actually it is not buying guide. Its a need to know guide, it tells you something new and funny about the hoverboard. 

Tips to safely ride a hoverboard:

•  Wear protection, and not just a helmet. That means you “have” to wear a helmet, pad around the knees, elbows and wrists.  People have broken their tailbones from falling backward off of the hoverboards, so padding the lower back is also a good idea, according to Glatter.



  •   If you are using a hoverboard, avoid crowds unless you feel completely comfortable with the board.
    •   Hoverboards probably aren’t a good idea for everyone. When it comes to riding a hoverboard, not all ages are equal. “The elderly should be cautious because of the amount of balance and core abdominal strength required to balance on these devices,” Glatter said.
    •   When using the board, avoid using cell phones or listening to music. Focus on using the board, so you avoid collisions with cars or people.

    Parents should use caution when buying the boards for children, especially because of the control needed to operate the board.

Number Six Fake Hoverboard buying guide to avoid: Mashable

We can’t believe, in this hoverboard buying guide, a tricycle is mentioned about 


Will you hover with tricycle? 

Let’s have a look at the most popular hoverboard nowadays mentioned on Mashable.


Why we like it: It’s one of many so-called “Hoverboard” devices on the market, and just like the rest of them, the two wheels are actually firmly on the ground. The Swagway, which looks like manufactured by F-wheel, though, sets itself apart as an excellent value. It’s a bit tricky to ride — at first — but if you learn a couple of simple tricks, like always step back (not forward) with one foot when it’s time to stop riding, you’ll master it in no time. It’s fun, fairly rugged, stable, surprisingly responsive (pressure-sensitive pads under your feet control speed and direction), and can go 1 mph, 10 mph and everything in between. The Swagway also has excellent battery life. It’s the closest thing to hovering above the ground on a budget.

Of course, this hoverboard buying guide recommended a one wheel scooter, aka electric unicycle.


However, this model of electric unicycle is not cool and stylish enough to compete with the F-wheel dolphin series.

Number One Fake Hoverboard buying guide to avoid: Buzzfeed

Buzzfeed doesn’t  wish to miss this hoverboard crazy and called a reporter to wrote an article about this hoverboard.


In this article, several kinds of board called hoverboard is reported. Including the segway hand-free style, just like the picture above.

The One Wheel is also names as hoverboard, you can see it below.


This one wheel scooter is not fun and stylish enough compared to F-wheel dolphin series electric unicycle. Here is what the customers comment on F-wheel unicycle.

“I have purchased one of your unicycles not too long ago and have used it everywhere. It is one of the most rugged things I have ever seen, It will happiy go over fields and on beaches and up hills etc. Also through water, EVEN SALT WATER!!! I just want to thank you because you are all so amazing and good builders of machines like these. (If you want a tester for any new products let me know as I will be more than happy to review and report back) if you want to drop a reply to this. Once again I just want to say how amazing your company is and that I am enjoying your unicycle very much! Thank you for your appreciation.”


The real hoveboard Hendo and Lexus hoverboard. These two kinds of hoverboard can really hover in the air. It’s idea is outstanding when it has obvious defects by now, like high price (over10,000$), short working time and limited working places. These defects make it hard to be popular.



At last, the hand-free segway style hoverboard wins the most popular hoverboard prize. It mentioned about IO hawk, which is a high price, plain performance hoverboard imported from China.

The most important thing looks just like hoverboard is walkcar, a new design four wheeled scooter.


Outstanding Manufacturer F-wheel has started selling this new design walkcar named icarbot now.  Click here to see more de
