About Gliderboards Self-Balancing Scooters

Gliderboards are like your own personal moving walkway. They are built around 3-axis gyro-sensors and accelerometers that provide equal parts balance, motion, and maneuverability. Designed to react to and support your every move, these superior self-balancing scooters should deliver rides as smooth as they are efficient. Gliderboards sells 6 different models of their compact transporter, the specific designs and features of which you can view and compare here.

As a starting point, the Gliderboard ONE is the company's original model, a scooter they say is as suitable for grandma as it is the 16-year-old she might buy it for. Like all Gliderboards, the ONE is an easy and intuitive ride that takes around 15 minutes of practice to feel proficient using. Newer models, such as the just-released VOLT, offer up design and color variety, plus some slight size variations.

All Gliderboards, with the exception of the Junior, have an average top speed of 9.5 MPH and a range of 10 to 15 miles when fully charged. Charge time is just 1.5 hours. The durable scooters are reinforced with high-grade aluminum, and can safely support up to 270 pounds of rider weight (Junior is 135 pounds) as they conquer road bumps, cracks, and sharp turns along the way.

Additional models include: the X-Caliber, another premium Gliderboard that incorporates a strip of LED lights on each side to serve as turn signals; the Zoom, a more minimalist futuristic design; the XXL, an off-road release with 10" tires; and the Junior, a smaller, slower Gliderboard for the kiddies. Most Gliderboards are also equipped with Bluetooth speakers and driving lights, and all but the Junior come with a protective carrying case.
