What is the difference between Segway & NInebot?

Segway was the pioneer of the self balancing personal transportational device. As such it is the most famous brand name which everyone recognises. Segway is an American company and whilst being great innovators of this pioneering technology they were bought out by the largest producer of personal transporters in the world - Ninebot. 

The table illustrates some of the differences between the two machines.

For our use indoors we felt the improved manoeuvrability and smoother drive system provides a superior experience for our riders. Each machine contains a black box recorder which contains a full history of each machine. They have several safety back ups so the rider will not have a situation where the machine goes out of control. Ninebots are also very able outdoors and have more powerful motors than Segway providing greater torque.

Ninebot is an amazing personal transporter. You drive and control it with your body's balance, just lean forward and backward to control acceleration and deceleration. To move left and right simply move the handle bar accordingly. The Ninebot senses the rider's posture and remains balanced. New riders should be able to learn the basics within 3 minutes or so.

All prices include vat and free postage or you are welcome to collect your Ninebot  from JDR Karting Gloucester
