Hoverboards are quite the eyeball magnets. And what can possibly attract more attention than a celebrity on a hoverboard? It will be entertaining to make a list of celebrities that have been openly seen in public on their hoverboards. We all like celebrities, but we love hoverboards more. We’ll keep an eye open for the models they ride.
1. Lily Allen (IO HAWK)
Known for the chain-smoking habit, actress and singer Lily Allen was spotted quite a few times on the streets of New York with her favorite hoverboard – The IO HAWK.
This good-looking transportation vehicle is a hybrid between a Segway and a skateboard. It also has a price to match, with the smoking hot entry price of $1800. It is, however, one of the most intuitive mobility hoverboards out there. You just stand on it and it glides effortlessly, thanks to its intelligent sensors and self-balancing algorithms. It’s a pricey gizmo but definitely one for you if you can afford it.
Songwriter, Singer and DJ Skrillex has also made several appearances on a deep blue IO HAWK. Unsurprisingly, he is also quite agile on it.
2. Jamie Foxx (PhunkeeDuck)
Jamie Foxx was seen gracefully entering The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on a gorgeous yellow PhunkeeDuck hoverboard. The name is quite the tongue-twister, but the PhunkeeDuck is a powerful and stable hoverboard that is quickly becoming the darling of thousands of enthusiasts. We personally love it for its agility and sense of balance.
3. Wiz Khalifa (IO HAWK)
Perhaps the celebrity caught the most on camera with a Hoverboard, from the supermarket to airports, Wiz Khalifa loves his golden IO HAWK and does not hide it.
3. Kendall Jenner (PhunkeeDuck)
You can ride a hoverboard anywhere, even in the house. At least, based on a video posted on YouTube, this is what Kendall Jenner does in her home with her white PhunkeeDuck. She’s quite agile maneuvering the turns, except that she’s not quite there yet with the acrobatics. The PhunkeeDuck is one of the best self-balancing hoverboards on the market. She probably would not have been this lucky on other less forgiving hoverboards.
4. Justin Bieber (Segway, PhunkeeDuck & IO HAWK)
No stranger to hoverboards, as any proper skateboarder should (he is a skateboard fan), the young star is often seen on a red Segway Balance Board 3.0 and a blue PhunkeeDuck.
A video posted on YouTube also shows him sporting a blue IO HAWK with his friends. Another footage shows him having fun with the same IO HAWK – but on a private plane? So these three might well be his favorite hoverboards.
5. USAIN BOLT (IO HAWK)
Not thwarted the least bit by a comical moment during the Olympics, where cameramen on a hoverboard ran him over, Usain Bolt is often seen strolling on his hoverboard in public – casually! His favorite model is a black IO HAWK.
When the world’s fastest man rides a hoverboard, it begs the question – can he run faster than his hoverboard?
