400W Motors:

The 400W dual motors used by EPIKGO are powerful and this is the main reason behind the ability to ride at steep incline or over rough surfaces without losing the balance. One can climb slopes that are as steep as 18 degrees without any trouble. The motors are 80% more powerful than other boards in the market.

The charge can last over one hour at 10 mph speed thus, making it one of the most powerful and fastest balance boards in the market.

Alloy Wheels:

The way the wheels work in EPIKGO is interesting and different. Instead of electric motors placed inside the wheels, powerful brushless motors are placed inside the body of the hover board. This results in allowing for a more powerful motors. The tires are made of solid rubber and has been rated IP56 for its solidness and water resistance.

The combination of alloy wheels with rubber tires makes it possible to easily ride through grass, mud and other rough surfaces.


The maximum speed of the EPIKGO Hover board is 10-12mph. This speed can be achieved on a single charge. One can travel quickly to the destination without compromising on the safety and style quotient.


The size of the product is 30% larger than all the other competitive products in the market. The larger size of the product indicates that there is more foot space, more balance and stability, and more control. The size of the product is also due to the powerful motor (2 times more powerful than its peers) which is placed inside the body of the hover board.

LG Smart Battery:

EPIKGO has adapted a fast charging technology that allows the user to use it for 10-12 miles with a 2-hour charge. This is quite impressive. As the battery is a LG smart battery, the Hoverboard battery replacement should be done with that of the same brand for the getting the same performance.


There are two sets of bright lights in the front. They are very useful during the night travel. There are also two sets at the rear which are rear turn signal lights.

In addition to all the above features, it has a built-in fast charging technology. This feature makes it more sophisticated. In addition to this, the company provides 1-year limited warranty that covers parts and labour.

Negative Points

The overall experience with EPIKGO Hover board is pretty good. But there are few downsides to it though not major.

  • The EPIKGO classic self-balance board is a bit heavy to carry. If someone wants to carry it over long distances, then it is no more fun. The weight is around 31 lbs and hence, one has to make sure that there is enough charge left to ride it back home. Else, carrying this huge board is definitely going to be a problem. But it is certainly of great use for local use.
  • The board sometimes vibrates upon acceleration and his is noticeable while going up in an inclination of above 10 degrees.
  • It would have been better if there is an indicator to know the charge level of the battery. It is a problem as there is no indicator to know how much charge is left or if the battery is fully charged.

Other than the above hitches, this self-balance board is a tough machine and gives a better riding experience.
