Hoverboards are not just battery-operated toys, they too are great for moving around or even commuting to work. Some just go for a ride to have fun. Unfortunately, most models have speeds that have been capped for safety, so they will only go at around 6 to 8 mph. Luckily, if you desire to have a faster pace, there are hoverboards that carry more speed. They still will not run as fast as a bike, but you can still beat your friends in a race.
