What is a Segway?
Like any invention that is ahead of its time, the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) is often misunderstood. A happy smile reflected in the faces of the Segway PT riders may suggest that this is just a toy. But make no mistake. Although it is incredibly fun to use a Segway PT, it is a means of official transport designed for modern life.
You can travel for miles and miles. The Segway PT can take you to places you would not be able to access by bicycle or car (including inside many stores, offices, businesses, airports, lifts and trains). Although they are ideal for short trips of 8km or less, the Segway PT can travel up to 38km on a single battery charge (depending on terrain, loading and riding style)..
Do you remember having a dream that felt like you could fly? With the Segway PT you will feel freedom, exhilaration and confidence. Feel the sensation of the ground moving under you without touching it. This is like floating above the surface. It gives you the feeling of power and speed and also you will notice the intensity of absolute control. Everything feels natural and instinctive. This is what it feels like to ride a Segway PT.
Here are some comments from different people who have ridden the Segway PT:
“My verdict is that the Segway PT is fun, safe and stable to ride, and is a truly impressive use of digital technology. It is very easy to learn and in many ways is simply amazing.”
“Using a Segway is so intuitive that it feels that somehow this thing is plugged into your central nervous system.”
“The Segway is incredibly stable, whether standing still or moving.”
ATTENTION: BE CAREFUL IF ANYBODY OFFERS YOU A SEGWAY TOUR OR A SEGWAY RENT, MAKE SURE YOU GET A REAL SEGWAY AND NOT ONE OF THOSE CHEAP AND DANGEROUS IMITATIONS.
