The first in the rating, one of the most bought gyro scooters in the middle segment Smart Balance PRO PREMIUM 10.5 V1, the cost of which does not exceed 9,990 rubles. The device is designed for a rider weighing up to 120 kg, but you need to remember: the harder the rider, the quieter the speed will be, which in normal mode reaches 15 km / h. The engine power is 1 kW, and its operation is provided by the original durable Samsung Lithium battery 36V 4.4AH, which has up to 20 km of run on a single charge (charging duration 3-4 hours). The gyro scooter weighs 14.5 kg – a little for a similar device, but it will be hard for a young rider.

Due to its low acceleration speed and engine power, the Smart Balance PRO PREMIUM 10.5 V1 hover scooter is more suitable for teenagers – they will be able to ride faster due to their low weight. The ride characteristics of the device satisfy just the basic needs of driving on a flat road with a maximum angle of elevation of up to 150 on small wheels with a diameter of 10.5 inches. The main feature of the model is control via a smartphone with the tao tao application installed.

The battery takes only 2-2.5 hours to charge, and this is the model's advantage over the leader of the rating. The device is designed for a driver's weight from 30 to 130 kg, but, again, as the load increases, the acceleration speed will only decrease, especially with a relatively weak engine. The wheels of the Smart Balance 9 Off-Road are 9-inch, but elastic, the device has excellent cross-country ability on uneven surfaces, sand, grass and light off-road.

Smart Balance Wheel 6.5

Rating: 4.5

Smart Balance Wheel 6.5

The third model from the Smart brand of the Balance series is in sixth place in our rating. The matter is in the reduced load – only up to 80 kg, as well as in the comparatively lower range of up to 15 km compared to the leaders, but the speed reaches 16 km / h. In addition, the engine is the weakest so far – only half a kilowatt. The battery of traditional capacity 4.4 Ah will cut itself all 4 hours.

The diameter of the wheels is 165 mm (6.5 inches), on which the gyrocopter feels confident mainly on a flat road surface, you cannot ride on it on the grass. Users also note weak plastic: it does not chip, but it scratches significantly, which is striking. However, this does not affect the protective properties of the housing, and the internal mechanisms with electronic units are not exposed to water jets (IPX-4 protection).

But there is also an advantage: a battery of the same capacity of 4.4 Ah can be charged for only 2 hours, and the device itself is designed for a rider weighing up to 120 kg. The wheels are small, their diameter is 6.5 inches and the low clearance makes it comfortable to ride on a flat city road with good asphalt.
