For those who would like to have a ride in rough terrain areas then this will be the right choice for you. With a high range speed and great inclination angle, it will provide an over-joyous ride.

 

EPIKGO Sports Plus (Self- Balance Scooter)

 

The EPIKGO Sports Plus is the most developed vehicle of individual transportation.
 

There is nothing new to the EpikGo racing model except the high-tread tyres which were created for enhanced grip and lower resistance when riding.
 
This increases the hoverboard’s maximum distance by about a mile or two at best, and you can hit a higher top speed with this model, almost 13 mph. But what makes a huge difference is street riding, with this scooter the riding is much smoother, and you get a much better grip while riding on dry pavements.
 

It has solid 8.5″ rubber tyres with fantastic grip, and the big wheels combined with the grip lets you climb over obstacles with ease. The climbing ability of the EpikGo hoverboard is 18 degrees, but with a bit of speed you could easily go up to low curbs, something that has been almost impossible on the smaller self-balancing scooters.

Editor’s Remark

Are you an adventurous person? Or, would like to use your self-balancing scooter as a sports gadget? Then, it’s the best choice for you to make sure your money is well spent! The sports model still does take on rougher terrain like dirt, grass, and gravel. Although, I highly recommend the off-road version that is more versatile.
