The Tomoloo Music Rhythm self balancing hoverboard may be the most colorful hoverboard you can find as far as LED lights are concerned. Bluetooth 4.0 is here as well as an LED design that gives you a colorful light show when riding. This show-off of a vehicle has a top cruising speed of 12 km/h and a range of 10 km on a full battery charge.
This Bluetooth hoverboard can hold riders up to 165lbs. The light show that it puts on is fantastic, as is the Bluetooth speaker, but the quality of the ride itself was not as smooth as its competitors and there’s nothing else that is very special happening here. It is a good ride, not a great one, but it sure is pretty. And the build quality is decent.
