The Ninebot by Segway miniPRO Review
Everyone knows what a Segway is. A Segway is a personal vehicle that has two big wheels, a platform to stand on and handles. If you didn’t know, Segway is rooted form the word segue, which means smooth. Cool, right? It’s no surprise that this is a smooth ride. With all the hype over the hoverboard fading, Segway company is coming out with something new and exciting Smart Self Balancing Personal Transporter with Mobile App Control called Segway miniPRO, is the new hoverboard.

Quality and Safety Assurance
As you can tell, these new features are great and honestly hard to beat. No hoverboard has even received it’s own certification of electrical and fire safety. This is so important because as you have probably already heard, there have been problems with the hoverboard spontaneously combusting. That’s definitely something they wanted to avoid, so Segway and Ninebot made sure ahead of time that their product met these requirements.
Segway’s high technology allows you to move around and navigate way easier than it would be on a hoverboard. If you’ve seen the clips of people riding hover boards on social media at all, you almost always notice they have a bit of a challenge when it comes to balancing and moving around on a hoverboard correctly. The Segway already has a self balancing system integrated. What makes it so easy to navigate on the Segway miniPRO is first of all, the knee control bar and second, the precision sensors. The knee control bar offers immense steering precision when compared to the hoverboard. Precision sensors allow the miniPRO to maintain stability while at the same time processing your movements.
Comfortable Riding Experience
On the topic of stability, you’ll never have to worry about bumps or anything that might get in the way of your Segway, as long as it’s not too big. Unlike the hoverboard, the tires on the Segway miniPRO are big and filled with a lot of air. They were made to resist or absorb any type of shock. Because of the phenomenal treading, you can be rest assured that you won’t slip or go off track unexpectedly.
The Segway miniPRO provides an optimally comfortable riding experience for whoever will be manning this vehicle. The comfort experience is thanks to the knee padding, balance system, precision sensors and it’s overall fit to the human frame. It’s easy to stand on this machine, so if you’re worried about trying it out, you really shouldn’t.
You have the ability to travel up to 10 mph on the Segway miniPRO as well as up to 14 miles on only one charge. The speed control is there so you never end up going to fast for comfort. On one charge you can do anything; like go to the library, pick up some groceries, check the mail, walk your dog, though we’re not completely sure if you should take it to the bar. Operating any kind of machine under the influence is questionable. Let’s face it, the miniPRO is pretty awesome so you can find a million ways to get use out of this thing before you run out of it’s battery.
