Whether it’s as a hobby or an extreme sport, now is the perfect time to take up off-road hoverboarding. Back in 2016, Underwriter Laboratories created the UL 2272 hoverboard certification, which ensures high standards of safety and quality. Since then, many innovative and exciting off-road hoverboard designs have flooded the market. Unlike regular hoverboards suitable for only pavement use, off-road hoverboards are stronger, bigger, and more durable. They’re typically outfitted with 8.5-10-inch wheels and pneumatic tires able to handle rough terrain — which means you can enjoy an exciting ride experience virtually anywhere.
EpikGo Sports Edition
The EpikGo Sports Edition is one of the most sleek and stylish hoverboard models suitable for novices and experienced riders alike. This innovative model is capable of providing a smooth ride over all types of terrain, including gravel, dirt, and grass. It’s outfitted with high-tread tires which are designed to provide better steering response, minimal resistance, and improved grip while riding. Additionally, it has a smart gyro-scopic motor which continuously works to adjust to weight movements of the rider, therefore creating a smooth and more enjoyable riding experience. Powered by dual 400W motors, the EpikGo Sports Edition hoverboard can reach extreme speeds (roughly 13 mph) without compromising safety.
TPS All-Terrain Off-Road Rugged
The TPS All-Terrain is a truly impressive hoverboard. It comes with a rugged, oversized design and extra-flat tires able to navigate rough off-road conditions.

However, it’s also a remarkably compact and lightweight product — you’ll be able to pick up and run with it easily if necessary.
