Best Jetson X10 Hoverboard Review | 2023
Having already been impressed with a handful of Jetson scooters as of late, I had high expectations from this thing. Said to be capable of dealing with all types of terrain, the Jetson X10 hoverboard certainly looks the part. Though as always, I’m skeptical when a 6.5-inch self-balancing scooter claims to be ‘all-terrain. The Jetson X10 Extreme Terrain hoverboard makes pretty bold claims by way of its name alone. But how does it perform when put to the test?. That’s what I set out to find in my Jetson X10 hoverboard review.
I know boards from this brand pretty well, and they’re not in the habit of disappointing. I’ve also mentioned on several occasions before that the Jetson mobile app is by far one of the best in the business. In terms of power, performance, and versatility, this is usually a brand that ticks all the right boxes. I was, therefore, keen to put the Jetson X10 all-terrain hoverboard to the test and see if it lived up to the hype.

My Experience with Jetson X10 Hoverboard
I could technically sum this review up in just a couple of sentences, but I’ll do Jetson the courtesy of going into a little more detail. Like its siblings from the same collection, the Jetson X10 Extreme Terrain Hover Scooter impresses right out of the box. The construction of the board is outstanding, and the attention to detail is gorgeous. It has a feeling of real quality to it, which isn’t always the case with boards for this kind of price. Capable of carrying riders up to 265lbs, it carried my ample frame with ease.
True to its claim, 10mph is the top speed you can expect, and that 12-mile maximum range is superb. Mine was charged in approximately 2.5 hours, so slightly less than indicated. No complaints about the Bluetooth speaker and the Jetson App is as good as it has ever been. In addition, the brand’s Active Balance Technology really does make a difference to the smoothness and enjoyment of the whole experience.
Pros & Cons Of Jetson X10 Hoverboard
- Quality materials and manufacturing
- Solid power and performance
- Fantastic on slightly rougher surfaces
- Feels safe and stable underfoot
- Not particularly ‘Extreme’ off-road
The Jetson X10 Self Balancing Scooter is simply fantastic. In terms of its power, top speed, range, safety, stability, and quality, it’s right up there. The same can also be said for value for money Jetson never disappoints. It’s just that when manufacturers make claims of ‘Extreme’ off-road performance, you expect something suitably extreme. The Jetson X10 hoverboard is just about as extreme as a 6.5-inch scooter can be, but isn’t going to take you places you’d get with say 10-inch wheels. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing you just need to ensure you have realistic expectations!
