Hoverboards are cool and effective. If you often walk down the road from day to day, a hoverboard can make your travel much faster and less tiring. If you ask people about the best hoverboards on the market right now, there is a good chance that you will receive both Halo Rover and EPIKGO as the answers. Of course, both Halo Rover and EPIKGO are powerful hoverboards; they have been designed to be able to take you anywhere. Their ruggedized design has enabled them to perform even through mud and snow. So, which one should you choose?
If you put the two models side by side, you will be intrigued by how Halo Rover and EPIKGO look incredibly similar to each other. It is almost like they are the exact copy of each other. Almost. There are still a few notable differences, though the differences may not be very significant. EPIKGO is a little bit smaller than Halo Rover. It is also slightly lighter, at least on the paper. Both boards have extended parts that protrude upward like small wings; these extended parts are there to protect your feet from possible splashing of water or mud from the tires. Both models are equipped with all-terrain tires, but Halo Rover’s tires certainly look more aggressive than EPIKGO’s tires. The tires of Halo Rover have thicker tread elements and shoulder blocks and deeper sipes than EPIKGO. We can expect better performance from the more aggressive tires in off-road and demanding terrain conditions.
There is a significant difference in terms of features. EPIKGO does not have Bluetooth or built-in speaker. So, it also can’t connect to your mobile phone for tracking functions. On the other hand, Halo Rover has been equipped with built-in Bluetooth, speakers, and a companion mobile app for training and tracking functions.
Both models are able to speed up to 10 mph. They also have similar battery life; they can run for up to 10 miles. So, if you run continuously at the maximum speed, they can last for about an hour. As mentioned above, the better tires of Halo Rover has allowed the hoverboard to perform better than EPIKGO when traction is needed. Even though EPIKGO boasts that it is able to climb slopes as steep as 18 degrees, Halo Rover is actually able to climb 20-degree slopes. So, Halo Rover is actually more powerful than EPIKGO.
In the end, we recommend you to choose Halo Rover. It is more powerful, and it has better features with Bluetooth, speakers, and a handy companion app.
