Is there such thing as a hoverboard for girl? Of course, there is. Although self-balancing scooters or hoverboards may not exhibit a feminine-inspired look, their fancy colors, features and specs do glitter in the eyes of gals. But if it is not enough, a girl can just replace the hard plastic shell with a custom shell that is adorned with flowery art, cute figures, gold glitter or anything that resembles the decors of her bedroom or scrapbook. If she’s asking for a hoverboard for girl that is studded with diamonds, that is way too much. But hey, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? Brands could roll out one but it will come with an expensive price tag.
What is the right hoverboard for girl?
Any self-balancing two-wheel electric scooter that is safe, durable, and high quality is good for all girls as long as she is capable of driving it and is not overweight. Hoverboards are recommended for ages 14 and above, and the maximum weight most self-balancing e-scooters can support is up to 220 lbs (100 kg).
If you are looking for a hoverboard for girl as a gift to your daughter, girlfriend, or spouse, make sure it is UL certified. Any self-balancing electric scooter that is UL certified is deemed safe for use. It has successfully passed a rigorous series of tests to determine its safety and quality. It has the assurance that it will not catch fire. Look for the UL holographic certification label with the enhanced mark on the bottom of the hoverboard for girl and the UL Mark for self-balancing scooters on the packaging. The UL mark should also appear on the charger/adapter and battery pack. (To know if the battery is UL certified, open up your hoverboard safely.)

There are hundreds of self-balancing electric scooter brands and models in the market. Which of them is the right hoverboard for girl? Without further ado, we introduce the following models, which we think every girl should have:
Razor Hovertrax 2.0 Hoverboard
When it comes to safety and brand recognition, Razor is the name you can trust. The company may have arrived late in the self-balancing e-scooter scene and their entry was just a result of acquiring the patent rights to the Hovertrax from Inventist, but they never fall short of quality workmanship. In fact the Razor’s Hovertrax hoverboard for girl is just one of the few hoverboards that are UL certified.
The lightweight Hovertrax weighs 25 lbs (11 kg) and supports a maximum load of up to 220 lbs (100 kg). The rubber wheels come with aluminum hubs to promote a smooth and safe ride.

miniPRO by Segway and Ninebot
