Riding the Segway PT feels like nothing you have ever experienced because there has never been anything like it. Step on and your instinct will be to steady yourself, as you would on anything with two wheels. But almost immediately you will realize that the Segway PT is balancing for you, almost like it has become an extension of you. Just lean forward a little and you will see that the Segway PT is not moving you on its own; it’s moving in response to you and what you tell it to do. It all feels natural and really cool. Be sure to review the User Materials before using a Segway PT.
Yes. The device is completely sealed to allow it to operate in wet weather. Just be careful on slippery surfaces.
Depending on the type of terrain, riding style and model, the Segway can travel 16 to 38 km on a single charge. Translated in terms of consumption, it is like if a car could travel 600 km at the cost of a liter of gasoline!
To move forward or backward on the Segway PT, the rider just leans slightly forward or backward. To turn left or right, the rider simply moves the LeanSteer frame left or right. You get the sense of power and speed, yet you also feel a sense of safety and absolute control. It all feels natural, safe and instinctive.
