Back in 2015 hoverboards were sweeping the nation. Everyone wanted one because of the huge demand, which meant companies could easily produce subpar products that would still sell and shops could jack up their prices to make a quick fortune.
Well now things are a little different, the pandemonium has died down and there are more hoverboards (also known as self balancing scooters) on the market that are actually worth your time and money. The cost of hoverboards has leveled out but the quality is still on the rise, which means you can grab yourself some real bargains if you know where to look.
Below is selection of some of the best hoverboards for sale with live pricing data to give you a rough idea.
Price of 10 Best Selling Hoverboards
How much money is a hoverboard?
As you can probably see from above, hoverboard cost can vary greatly. A cheap hoverboard brand will set you back around a minimum of $120 but they can go up to several hundred dollars and sometimes more. If you’re looking for the best hoverboards on the market expect to pay around $800 or more. A hoverboard at this price has a lot of nifty features and performs very well so a price like that is just about justified.
But what if you’re looking for something a little more?
How much is a Lamborghini Hoverboard?
The hoverboard apparently developed by Lamborghini (but not actually made by Lamborghini) was seen to be selling for thousands. It’s now available for much less from various places around the internet.
How much does a real hoverboard cost?
Whenever talking about hoverboards, there’s always a slight elephant in the room. They don’t actually hover!
But we’ve found a selection of hoverboards that actually do hover! These hoverboards are some of the very first hoverboards that actually do hover. They’re very new technologies and therefore might not be quite what you expect. But what kind of price should you expect to pay for a real life hoverboard? And is there even a real hoverboard for sale? Let’s take a look.
The Lexus hoverboard is exactly what you’d expect from a hoverboard. It’s like it’s straight out of Back to the Future. Using the incredible phenomenon of superconductivity and a custom built skate park, the team at Lexus managed to build a hoverboard picked right from science fiction. Of course, this was created and released during 2015, at the height of the hoverboard craze, so is nothing more than a publicity stunt to capitalize on the popularity of hoverboards back then.
So unfortunately this isn’t for sale.
The ArcaBoard is a very interesting design. Using many motors this strange looking product can successfully lift you off the ground. And that’s about it so far.
The price for this… $15,000. Learn more here.
The Hendo hoverboard is the kickstarter project that gained a lot of attention a few years back as their design of a hoverboard is about as close to a real product as we’re going to find. They even managed to get Tony Hawk to give it a ride.
The price of the Hendo board: $10,000.
