Segway’s miniPRO is Winning the Hoverboard Race

Segway miniPRO

Segway, considered the best in electric personal transportation market, recently launched its  new miniPRO in Canada, Mexico and the US. The new Segway miniPRO is an exciting invention that provides an amazing personal transportation experience for outdoor use and leisure.

In 2015 hoverboards, smart self-balancing scooters – which balance themselves but don’t actually “hover”, took internet and electronics market by storm. They were great and it felt like we were living in the future. Now a little more than a year later, self-balancing scooters largely vanished from many markets in Europe and the U.S. after they exhibited a worrying tendency to burst into flame. Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon and other major retailers dumped the products after videos of flaming hoverboards went viral.

It was only a matter of time before Segway, the world leader in electric personal transportation, was going to make a new one, but make it better and make it right.

According to the Vice President of the Marketing and Business development department, Brian Buccella, “ The miniPRO is incredibly fun and carefully designed to provide riders with an experience unlike any other two-wheel ride on the market.” He adds, “Built with the most advanced balancing technology; the miniPRO glides automatically, based on the rider’s movements, providing the most stable, hands-free ride imaginable. Additionally, the miniPRO recently earned UL’s coveted 2272 safety certification, which was very important to us, given our renowned reputation for product quality and rider safety.”

Ninebot by Segway miniPRO was developed with exclusive, high-tech, self-balancing technology. There is a computer built into the board that observes the movements of the rider at more than hundred times per second using complicated algorithms, high-speed processors and sensors. It also works with a safety function that monitors the smart technology in the miniPRO and enables it to learn the rider’s riding habits and adapt. The Segway miniPRO also comes with 10.5” inflatable tires that ensure very smooth ride whether it is used indoors or outdoors. Riders can also view performance data on the device’s dashboard, keep an eye on speed, set their preferred lighting, activate the device’s security alarm and operate the device remotely using the Ninebot by Segway app.

The Segway miniPRO, self-balancing electric scooter , can be used by anyone from age 16 to 60 and offers a very lively, comfortable and responsive riding experience with stop and 360-degree control options. The device was developed with emphasis on the North American consumer and it comes with a highly efficient high-performance battery to keep it working for a relatively long time without charging, the battery can be charged anywhere. At full charge, a rider can travel up to 14 miles reaching a top speed of 10 mph. The miniPRO is made with aircraft-grade magnesium material that ensures its durability; it is also small enough to fit into any vehicle.
