Safe Hoverboards for Sale in 2020

Ever since hoverboards were banned in 2015 due to patent issues and safety concerns related to batteries, people have been wondering “Where can I buy a hoverboard?” or “Can I buy a hoverboard online?” Now in 2021, hoverboards are available again in the USA. These new hoverboard models are safer than the ones available previously, as they all have to receive a federally mandated UL 2272 safety certification mark. (You can read all about these safety standards here.)

While there are only a limited number of models and brands available currently, we expect that more companies will be producing safe and UL approved hoverboards, glideboards, and hands free self-balancing electric scooters by the end of the year. We will keep updating our site as new options become available. Check out the current offerings below.
