How should you use a hoverboard?

Here are some tips to use this board. If you’ve never ridden a hoverboard before, the first few rides may be a little tricky , hoverboard tricks


When you have put your first foot on the board, the motherboard will sense through sensors that someone is stepping on the board.

Immediately it will balance itself automatically. After the system has done this, place your other foot on the second plane.

Even now you make sure that you place your foot neatly in the middle of the pedal.

The wider you place your feet, the easier it is to remain stable on the board.

It doesn’t matter from which side you step on the board, the motors work both ways.

When you put your feet straight, the sensors will not block the infrared light, so that the wheels remain stationary.

If you want to stop driving, it is therefore important to stand completely straight. Getting off also takes some practice.

When you’re ready, turn on the hoverboard. You place the board on a flat surface and you place one foot on the pedal.

Make sure you put your foot down correctly, right in the middle of the pedal and not on the inside of the board.

How do you balance on a hoverboard?

Now that we’ve highlighted some key parts of the hoverboard, let’s take a look at how the device works.

Under the pressure plates of the All Terrain Hoverboard are switches; both at the front and back.

When the switches are pressed, a sort of ‘wall’ is placed between the sensors and the infrared light.

The sensors then no longer receive light and pass this information on to the motherboard.

The moment you stand upright with both feet on the balancing board, nothing happens. The switches are not pressed.

As soon as you lean forward or back, the light is blocked. The motherboard receives a signal from the sensors, which sets the wheels in motion.

The switches are therefore indirectly connected to the wheels. If you activate the switch at the front left, the left wheel will turn forward, you then turn right.

Using sensors, the gyroscopes can measure how far you lean forward or back.

When you lean far forward, the wheels have to spin faster in order for you to keep your balance.

Your speed is therefore determined by your weight and how far you lean forward or backward.

Once you are on the board, it is important that you do not make sudden movements.

The hoverboard reacts to a change in your balance. Below you can see what happens when you lean forward and backward.

Make sure your legs are in a relaxed position with the knees very slightly bent. This will allow you to keep a much better balance.

If you lean back, the hoverboard will move backwards.

If you lean forward, you go forward and at a position above the middle of the board you stay in the same position.

It is also important that you only shift your weight and at all times do not shift your weight from left to right in such a way that a wheel lifts off the ground.

How can you make turns with your hoverboard?

If you want to make a turn with your board, you first reduce your speed. If you want to make a right turn, apply more pressure with your left foot.

You tilt your left foot inward, as it were.

As a result, the sensors in the board sense that the weight is moving, so that you will make a turn.

But it is also possible that the board becomes unbalanced through use. You then have to recalibrate the board. With the Denver, that’s an easy task.

Calibrating your hoverboard

You find yourself needing to recalibrate your hoverboard if it pulls too much to the left or right.

Below are the steps on how to calibrate your hoverboard:

  • Turn off the hoverboard and level it.
  • Press and hold the on/off button for about 10 seconds until the light flashes and the scooter beeps continuously.
  • Switch the scooter off again.
  • Turn it on normally, and it is now calibrated.

You see, it’s a piece of cake. This way you can drive quickly and safely with your hoverboard again. Read more about calibrating hoverboards here .

Maintenance of your hoverboard

Maintaining the segway hoverboard uk is quite simple. It is important that you charge the battery correctly, as described above.

And when charging is complete, make sure you both unplug the adapter and unplug the board from the power supply.

Keep the hoverboard clean and dry

In addition to keeping your battery in good condition, keeping it clean and dry is also important.

As you have already read, the Denver hoverboard model is not suitable for driving in water.

But even if you charge the battery well and you don’t drive through water, your hoverboard can get dirty. It is sufficient to clean your hoverboard with a soft cloth.

Is a hoverboard safe?

The mini segways are very popular with children and young people. They are therefore often enthusiastically received as a birthday, Christmas or Sinterklaas gift.

However, before the child takes his/her first ride on the hoverboard, it is important to be aware of the rules regarding riding this board.

How do you ensure that a ride with the airboard is as safe as possible?

For safe use of a hoverboard, it is important that you observe the following:

  • Take the time to learn
  • Provide adequate protection
  • Buy your hoverboard from a reliable supplier

Take your time!

If we are to believe several YouTube videos, using a hoverboard is quite a challenge.

Especially adults who think they can stand on the device without exercise are the subject of many ‘blooper reel’.

Before you really start riding the hoverboard, it is important to practice well. It may take a while to find your balance.

As mentioned before, it can be quite a challenge to get the hang of getting on and off the bike.

In the Netherlands it is forbidden to go on public roads with a hoverboard.

Because the device contains a motor, it could be seen as a ‘motorized two-wheeler’.

However, the hoverboard does not contain a steering wheel or seat, which means that it does not fall into the category of ‘approved vehicles’.

The vertical skateboard may therefore only be used at home or on private property.
