Segway Drift W1
The undisputed leader in self-balancing technology has done it again. Ever since the brand introduced its first self-balancing personal transporter in 2001, there has been an increasing clamor for the company to do more. This 2018, the Segway Drift W1 is guaranteed to take fans of the hoverboard to a whole new level of self-balancing technology.
Made of durable, sturdy, and lightweight aluminum alloy, the Drift W1 is robust enough to power a 220-lb individual to a top speed of 7.5 MPH. Sure, it’s not the blitzkrieg you’re hoping for, but considering the W1 is actually a marriage of a unicycle and a hoverboard then you’ll know that this is quite fast enough.
Segway engineered the Drift W1 to be exceptionally easy to learn to ride. Whereas conventional unicycles or even electric skateboards will require your active participation in terms of maintaining balance while rolling, the Drift W1 relies on its now-iconic stable self-balancing technology to keep you upright. This makes it very easy to learn that even a 6-year old kid can easily ride the W1 in no time at all.
Featuring an intelligent battery management system, you’ll never have to worry about the Drift ever catching fire or suddenly exploding right under your nose. It is powered by a high-security rechargeable lithium battery that should help you have all the fun in your life for a good 45 minutes. The electric motor is powerful enough to allow you to go up an incline to about 10 degrees, although Segway was kind enough to note that this is largely dependent on the weight of the rider.
And if you decide to take the Drift W1 for a spin during the night, you’d be glad it has ambient front and rear lights complete with 3 lighting modes. As a matter of fact, the lighting modes can also be used to match your own style of riding on a single-wheeled electronic skate.
The Segway Drift W1 offers you a new way to enjoy an exhilarating ride without really having to spend lots of time learning to balance yourself on a single-wheeled skate.
