Razor Hovertrax 2.0 Review on Specifications:
Top Speed: 8 miles max!
I got hardly 7.5 miles per hour when I have research on the users of the hoverboard. Speed is undeniably vital for any hoverboard. The speediness of the Razor Hovertrax 2.0 hoverboard is surprisingly slow comparing to other hoverboards. But it also needs to consider that, speed of hoverboard depends on various factors like rider weights, the slope, and fairness of the riding ground, even the reverse wind speed.
Battery Life 1 hour to 1 hour 10 mins Max!
I will give 4.00 out of 5.00 for the performance of the battery. Most of the hoverboards battery life is near 1.25 hours or more, and I found it barely 1.25 hours. But the performance of battery depends on other factors like temperatures, rider weight, active usage, usage of lights, and ground of the hoverboard riding.
Rider’s Weight Limit: Max 220 lbs. (100 kg.)
Most of the self-balancing scooters’ maximum weight limits for a rider are between 220lbs to 240 lbs. And we found it for Razor hovertrax 2.0 is 220lbs and that is quite good and standard for a hoverboard.
Charge time: 1-2 hours
The initial charging time is 6 hours. After that, it takes only 1 to 2 hours to get the battery level from Red to Green in the LED battery indicator.

Rechargeable 36V lithium-ion LG cell & quick-changeable.

Auto Self-Balancing Technology
Hovertrax 2.0 uses an improved auto self-balancing technology named EverBalance™ technology. It uses gyroscopic technology to maintain rider auto self-balancing. The gyro-sensor of exclusive EverBalance™ technology makes your ride safer by auto-balancing when you on max speed.

Shatter-Resistant Polymer Shell
Razor has certainly valued the users’ interest in the safety of the hoverboards! To protect inner components from any sort of accidental damage Razor has used a new polymer Shatter-Resistant Plastic. This durable Shatter-Resistant Plastic helps the Hoverboard to get safe from scratch & scrapes too.
