RoboTTurbo Self Balancing Scooter Review
RoboTTurbo may be a new name to the hoverboard industry, but their self balancing scooter looks anything but amateur. We have to admit, we were blown away the first time we saw the new RoboTTurbo Hoverboard. The design alone was enough for us to want to get our hands on one as soon as possible. As if that wasn’t enough, the features and performance stats that RoboTTurbo claimed to have were some of the best we’d ever seen. We had to find out if all the hype was true.

RoboTTurbo Test & Review
RoboTTurbo has seriously hyped up the quality and performance of their hoverboard, so we had high expectations and were stoked when it finally arrived. The RoboTTurbo’s design is cutting-edge, futuristic, and it even looks fast. It’s like something you’d see in a Star Wars movie; we could totally imagine Stormtroopers riding these things into battle. The platform pad for your feet has been split up into separate sections which makes for a sharp-looking topside pattern, and they’ve added black plastic bumpers along the wheel fenders and bottom of the scooter to help prevent scratches. The center LED display is nice and bright, along with the crisp blue LED running lights along the bottom.
The RoboTTurbo charged up in a short 45 minutes, the fastest we’ve ever seen. This is mostly thanks to the recharging technology inside the dual Samsung SDI lithium-ion batteries that power this hoverboard. These batteries are top-notch, and they’re also the main reason this self balancing scooter gets such an incredible range on a single charge. RoboTTurbo’s website says you can expect 15 miles on a full charge, but we were able to get 16 whole miles out of this bad boy!
Something totally new to us (and the rest of the industry) was the concept of different ride modes. The RoboTTurbo self balancing scooter features highly sensitive motion sensors and is powered by not one, but two 500W motors which boast a top speed of 15 mph! In most cases, hoverboard brands that claim high top speeds are just exaggerating their numbers to get people to buy their product. This was not the case. The first time we set foot on the RoboTTurbo, the power blew us away. It flew down the street and clocked in at a record 15.6 mph. It charged up hills like there was nothing in its way, and held up through all of our terrain tests extremely well.
Because of this power, the RoboTTurbo offers a 3-control system that allows you to adjust both the speed and sensitivity of the hoverboard according to your preference. Entry mode, designed for beginners, has a lower speed and turning sensitivity so that you can get used to riding without things getting too crazy. Intermediate mode increases each of these a bit, and Master mode holds nothing back. This final mode gives you the highest sensitivity for fast, precise turns, along with full power and the top speed of 15 mph. In addition, the RoboTTurbo features a smart auto-braking system that helps slow the self balancing scooter when braking. It keeps stability in control, and you can go from top speed to a dead stop in roughly 2-3 seconds.
- Totally new futuristic design with high-quality parts build
- Fast 45-minute charge time and can get over 15 miles on a single charge
- #1 fastest hoverboard with a record top speed of 15.6 mph
- 3 ride modes allow you to adjust speed and sensitivity according to your preference
- Auto-braking system helps slow scooter quickly and stabilizes board while braking
- No Bluetooth speakers available
- Slightly higher price point than the average hoverboard
Overall, the RoboTTurbo may have been the best self balancing scooter we’ve tested to this day. The design is totally unique and the performance is on another level, giving this hoverboard a huge edge over the rest of the hoverboards that all look and perform similar. Sure, the price point is higher than the average hoverboard, but then again this is not your average hoverboard. If you’re looking for a self balancing scooter that blows away the competition and flies by your friends, the RoboTTurbo is the one for you.
