The Jetson Strike hoverboard forms part of a large and growing collection of scooters from this well-known brand. In this instance, the Jetson Strike is the affordable all-terrain variant, which claims to be able to get the job done on all types of surfaces. For the most part, it’s a pretty similar board to its siblings from the same collection. The same LED lights, the same Bluetooth speaker, and the same powerful motor under the hood. It’s just that in this instance, the Jetson Strike all-terrain hoverboard is fitted with much more rugged and durable off-road tires.
In most instances, all-terrain boards with 6.5-inch wheels aren’t particularly impressive on the rough stuff. Take the off-road, and they’re more likely to get clogged up and start beeping at you than get you from A to B. Nevertheless, I’ve been genuinely impressed with all the Jetson boards I’ve tried to date, so I figured I’d give this one the benefit of the doubt.

My Experience with Jetson Strike Hoverboard
That said, the Jetson Strike all-terrain hoverboard does a pretty good job of bridging the gap between the two. On the one hand, it’s an extremely capable, stable, and enjoyable everyday scooter that’s great for tearing about the place on. On the other, it’s also way more competent than some of its counterparts when it comes to dealing with the occasional bit of rough or uneven terrain.
For example, put to this thing to the test on short grass or compacted dirt, and it’s not going to let you down. By contrast, anything like gravel or loose dirt could cause you a problem. So like I said, it’s somewhere in the middle.

With the Jetson Strike hoverboard, it’s once again a case of having realistic expectations. If you genuinely expect this thing to fly over the roughest surfaces with ease, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment. If you’re more realistic in terms of what 6.5-inch wheels are capable of, you’re in for a real treat. This thing is pretty much the same machine as some of its siblings from the collection, though with the addition of all-terrain tires. An addition that does make a difference, but doesn’t transform it into a radically different hoverboard.
