Gyroor G11 Hoverboard Review – 6.5-Inch Self-Balancing Scooter

Since the beginning of the Electric Wheelers blog, I have tested many e-bikes and electric scooters. I have even driven a Tesla. But I had never ridden a hoverboard.

Gyroor helped me to fix this little problem and sent me one of their off-road hoverboards – G11.

Gyroor G11 off-road hoverboard was released at the end of 2022. And by now, it seems they have stopped selling the model.

In this review, we are going to see what are its main features and can you really offroad with it. Oh, and you can also see how a 30-year-old man rides the hoverboard for the first time in his life.

Gyroor G11 Overview

Gyroor is a well-known manufacturer of different electric vehicles. However, hoverboards have been their main focus for a long time. But when I recently checked out their website, I saw lots of e-scooters and e-bikes and just a couple of hoverboard models.

Also, I didn’t see the model G11 anymore. I managed to spot only models G2 (adults’ hoverboard) and G13 (kids’ hoverboard).

But for the sake of history, I leave the review of the G11 model here. Let’s see what this model was all about.

Who Should Buy Gyroor G11 Hoverboard?

The Gyroor G11 hoverboard is a popular and versatile self-balancing scooter that is built for riders of all ages and abilities. Since it has a payload capacity of up to 220 pounds (100 kg), it really is suitable for adults too. But not for too heavy though.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I wouldn’t consider this hoverboard suitable for commuting. For me, it’s rather a toy than a means of transport. However, the G11 has a realistic range of about 5 miles and it’s much faster than walking, so you can use it as short commutes as well.

For students, the hoverboard might be a fun and exciting way to get around campus. Also, a hoverboard is definitely a perfect toy for children, who just want to have fun.

Where to Buy Gyroor Hoverboards?

Gyroor is a global brand that supplies its electric vehicles in over 64 countries. The most convenient place to buy yourself a Gyroor hoverboard is:

Gyroor has done a good job in packing. Everything is nicely protected with plastic foam.

In the box, there was a charger, some instructions, a manual, and a hoverboard itself.

I must say it looks very nice and sleek. And it was pretty heavy. I thought these things were lighter.

And there was one more thing in the box – a carrying bag. I think it’s very useful. Makes carrying it much easier.

Before the first ride, I recommend reading the manual. There is some useful information about the board and some basic instructions on how to ride with it.

Kids will probably know how to ride it after just looking at it. But to be honest, I felt a bit scared before I stepped on this thing. So I thought it was necessary to read the tutorial before.

Gyroor G11 Review – Performance

Motors and Speed

The Gyroor G11 hoverboard is equipped with dual 250W hub motors, which provide plenty of speed and acceleration. The motors are located inside both wheels. So in total, the G11 hoverboard has a motor power of 500 watts.

Motors allow the hoverboard to reach speeds of up to 7.5 mph (12km/h) and provide a smooth and stable ride, even on rough terrain.

Since I tested the top speed on a slippery and snowy terrain, I couldn’t reach the advertised maximum. However, I was riding with it at 5 mph and that speed was enough to make me feel a bit scared. So I didn’t want to lean more to test the actual maximum.

Battery and Range

The Gyroor G11 hoverboard comes with a long-lasting lithium-ion battery that has in total of 72 watt-hours of energy capacity.

The battery provides up to 7.5 miles (12 km) of range on a single charge. It means, if you ride for 1 hour at the hoverboard’s top speed, the battery can last for 1 hour. It takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge the battery.

So, the playtime of the G11 is not so long. But fortunately, the recharge time is also quite short.

The battery is also designed to be safe and reliable, with multiple safety features to prevent overcharging and other potential issues.

Is Gyroor G11 Off-Road Hoverboard?

Although Gyroor claims that G11 is an off-road hoverboard, we wouldn’t classify it as so.

It has enough power to tackle some obstacles and ride on an uneven dirt road but if the terrain is very rough, the ride quality is rather poor.

However, I tested the hoverboard on snow and it managed there surprisingly well. It’s probably not meant to ride in the snow, so I wouldn’t recommend you to do the same.

You will enjoy the ride the most if you ride it on smooth pavement or sidewalk.

Gyroor G11 Design and Features

Build Quality

The Gyroor G11 hoverboard is known for its high-quality construction and durable design. The hoverboard is made of strong and lightweight materials, and it has been rigorously tested to ensure it can withstand everyday use.

The frame is designed to be lightweight, yet strong enough to support riders up to 220 pounds (100 kg). There is also a minimum weight limit for the hoverboard, which is 44 lbs (20 kg). This makes the G11 a good choice for kids and most adults.

The G11 also has durable, non-slip footpads that provide a secure grip, even when the hoverboard is going at full speed. Footpads have been tested to ensure they can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.


Hoverboards are usually quite lightweight and small, so they are easily portable. The same goes for Gyroor G11.

The G11 is also easy to carry, so you can take it on public transportation or store it in a closet when you’re not using it.

The hoverboard comes with a convenient carrying bag to make it even more portable.

In addition to its strong frame, the G11 also has 6.5-inch rubber tires that provide a smooth ride, even on rough terrain.

The tires are puncture-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about getting a flat while you’re out and about.

Gyroor G11 App

The G11 hoverboard comes with its own app, which allows you to customize and control your hoverboard from your smartphone. The app is available for both iOS and Android devices, and it is easy to use.

With the app, you can customize the hoverboard’s settings. For instance, you can adjust the speed of the hoverboard, as well as LED lights and other features. Also, you can toggle between children and adult mode.

In addition to its customization and monitoring features, the G11 app also provides access to helpful tutorials and user manuals. This makes it easy to learn how to use your hoverboard, and it provides valuable information that can help you get the most out of your G11.

LED Lights

The Gyroor G11 hoverboard is equipped with LED lights that make it easy to see, even at night.

These lights are located on the front and back of the hoverboard, and they provide a bright and colorful display that is sure to turn heads.

With the Gyroor app, you can choose from a variety of different colors and patterns, allowing you to personalize your hoverboard and make it truly unique.

This is a fun and exciting feature that allows you to express your personality and style through your hoverboard.

Music Speakers

The Gyroor G11 has built-in music speakers that allow you to listen to your favorite tunes while you ride. These speakers are located on the bottom of the hoverboard, and they provide clear and powerful sound.

To play music through the hoverboard, just connect your smartphone to the hoverboard via Bluetooth.

Are Gyroor Hoverboards Safe?

Many parents are concerned about whether hoverboards are safe. Although the concern is fully justified, Gyroor hoverboards are rather safe.

Gyroor G11 hoverboard comes with a UL2272 certificate. It means that the product has been thoroughly tested and meets all safety standards.

Additionally, the battery of Gyroor G11 has a safety feature that protects the product from overcharging.

Gyroor Warranty

Gyroor G11 comes with a 6-month warranty for the battery and a 1-year warranty for the rest of the hoverboard.

Please note that the warranty is only valid for factory defects. If you ride through deep puddles or the device stops working after being dropped, the warranty doesn’t help you.

Gyroor G5 vs G11

Gyroor G11 and G5 are very similar. Both have wheels of the same size and the same LED lights. Also, the typical range is about the same.

However, they have some notable differences too.

The battery of Gyroor G5 has twice as much energy capacity as G11. Also, the G5 has a little bit more power. Thanks to that, the G5 is capable to withstand 45 lbs (20 kg) more payload. A bigger motor is also useful when off-roading.

So the G5 has some minor advantages, but it also costs a bit more.

My Personal Ride Experience

At first, it was a bit sketchy but once I got both feet on the board, it felt very stable and comfortable.

Moving with the hoverboard is so intuitive. At first, I thought, how on Earth can you turn this thing around? In reality, it was really easy. It seems like you just have to think of the turning, and the hoverboard magically turns itself.

Although it was cool to ride in the room, I wanted to test it outside as well. Unfortunately, it had just recently snowed. But that didn’t stop me.

In this video, I am riding the hoverboard for the first time in my life and I will also test Gyroor G11 on the snow.

Obviously, I didn’t go in the deep snow. Without a doubt, no hoverboard can ride there.

But I found a sidewalk that had recently been driven over by a snowplow. Snow and ice made riding a bit more unstable but it was totally doable. The hoverboard was sliding from left to right, and I didn’t have the guts to lean more to test the top speed.

Anyway, I think I don’t lie if I call this an off-road hoverboard. However, I also tried it on this icy bridge ramp. This incline was too much for Gyroor G11. You need a more powerful hoverboard with real off-road tires to climb an incline in these conditions.

Although the hoverboard didn’t die on the first contact with snow, I think it’s not meant to be ridden in winter and I would prefer warm and dry conditions.

Gyroor G11 Review Conclusions

Overall, the Gyroor G11 hoverboard is a well-built and durable self-balancing scooter that is designed to last.

Its strong frame, puncture-resistant tires, and non-slip footpad make it a great choice for riders who want a hoverboard that can withstand the rigors of everyday use.
