The Swagway X1 is a smart hands-free board. It is a lightweight, self-balancing hoverboard that is one of the earliest hoverboards to use advanced technology allowing it to reach a top speed of 10 km/h. One of the best features of the Swagway X1 includes an 110W Samsung/LG lithium battery, which allows the rider to ride as much as 20 miles on a full charge.
The built of the Swagtron X1 consists of an aluminium alloy frame backed by a hard ABS coating. The tires are made of rubber while the wheels are of an aluminium material too. The hoverboard also has slick lights on it and comes in a variety of colours ranging from dark red, black and blue to a special edition pink colour.
The main benefits of buying a Swagway X1 for the user includes bumper guards that absorb any shock the hoverboard takes when the rider rides on it. When fully charged, it can function for as long as 5 hours.
Being a fairly older model by the Swagway Company, the hoverboard can easily get scratched due to the material used in making its body. The bumper guards tend to be a bit dodgy and don’t adhere well when a heavy rider uses it, although it can carry a person weighing up to 200 pounds. The hoverboard itself weighs about 26.5 lbs. So it isn’t the most portable machine in the market. Other limitations reported by some users are related to its top speed. Some claim that it hardly ever reaches the 10-kilometre mark when an adult uses it, which raises question marks on the motor used to make the Swagway X1.
Overall, the Swagway X1 is an ideal scooter for newbies considering its price of $450 but with the option of much better Segway within the same price range produced by other companies.
