The RioRand Two Wheels Self Balancing Electric Scooter is by far one of the most popular Segway boards sold in the UK which would set you back around £220.
These little devices have taken over the world with celebrities posting pictures and videos all over social media. But how can you blame them? Let’s face it, walking is not fun, riding around on one of these is extremely fun.
If you have good balance like myself, you will pick up on the riding style from the word go. The RioRand Swegway Board is very easy to learn to use due to its self balancing sensors which pick up on your body’s movement which then counter balances you within a split millisecond. This is due to its two wheels which each have their own self balancing motions built in. Turning, spinning, moving forward and going backwards will feel as natural as gliding on a fluffy cloud across a rippleless lake (depending on which type of surface you are on).
With speeds up to 10km/h, these boards are safe as well as fun. They aren’t just a means of transportation for adults either, they also make great gifts for the children too. Kids love to zoom around on them, racing each other and just generally enjoying the new technology the RioRand Segway Board has to offer. As Christmas is closely approaching now, the Segway Board (Swegway Board) is set to top the record for the most popular Christmas present of 2015 and you can definitely see why!
The only downside to this awesome piece of technology is that the plastic can easily scratch (if you are to step off!).
