Segway began developing electric mobility vehicles before it was cool for car companies and startups. Well before it was cool. Segway’s iconic self-balancing two-wheeler may be one of the dorkiest-looking ways to get from A to B ever invented, which is why the initial projection that it would transform life as we know it turned into a self-evident punchline.
What you may not know is Segway has branched out into a broader and cooler range of electric-powered vehicles. They make some rad dirt bikes. They also make fantastic electric scooters, one of which is currently available at a significant discount. Segway is offering a “Return to Learn” special on the Ninebot KickScooter by Segway ES2. The scooter typically retails for about $650, but right now, you can get it for $500 (it also comes with a free phone holder).
The Ninebot KickScooter ES2 has a top speed of 15.5 mph and a 15.5-mile range. It can climb a 10-percent grade. It is made from water-resistant material. It offers features like front and rear shock absorbers and front LED lights. It has a one-click foldable system that allows it to be easily carried or stowed in a car trunk.
This scooter could be a great alternative and eco-friendly way to commute short distances, whether you’re traveling to work or school. And even if you’re not making those commutes this fall for obvious reasons, you will probably be looking for a fun way to get out of the house and get some fresh air.
