    Beat Expectations! 1st Segway and super thrilled!

    I saw this product on sale at best buy for $298 at my local best buy store and I had to get it. I've never ridden a hoverboard before so I was very concerned if I would be able to balance myself. Upon using it for the first 5 minutes I was able to balance myself and go up to 3 mph. After 15 minutes of use, I can easily go 10mph and be secure on it! Pros: Very easy to use and goes pretty fast 10mph on the full charge with a 11-mile range! Great for quick trips to the local deli for a quick bite. Much affordable than the Pro. You should get the pro if you weigh more than 175lb as it has more power. These have real tires on them so if you go over a bump/cracks/rocks you will still be able to balance yourself. Cons: Kind of heavy. If you are riding it to a store you will need to chain it and park it somewhere because you won't be able to carry it around. This isn't about the product but believe it or not your legs start to hurt after about 30 minutes of continued use because you are just standing in one spot and applying pressure on your feet. All in all if you are considering getting a hoverboard I think this is a great value for the first time purchaser. It would be easy for even a 10 year old to learn!

    High Quality

    I have both the pro model and bought the LITE model for my 7 year old child. The thing is built to a high quality standard. A few things I miss on this model vs the PRO. Does not have the headlight for night time riding and the telescoping knee bar. This one is fixed at a very low point (around the shins) for an adult and therefore makes it much more difficult for an adult to ride as this is intended to be steered by the knees. Perfect for a kid not an adult. If I have any advice spend a little extra money and get the pro model. It is amazing. I have so much better control on that one and I do not see another option online to buy a telescoping knee bar for the LITE.

    Built rugged but no locking mechanism

    Comparing the lite to the pro: The top speed is the same as the pro and the range is nearly the same. Hence I went with the lite since it did not make senses to pay more for pro. I went through the tutorials, which are required. You the have to go through a tutorial with the board to learn basic riding skills. It takes about 10 minutes. It then allows you to use it with a restricted top speed of 6.5 mph until you travel .6 miles. It also handled 10% grade on my campus with ease. It also tries to keep you within the max limit of 11mph by leaning back when you hit 10. I searched in the app for the anti-theft locking capability and remote control access, but it is not enabled which is I think is a drawback.

    Extremely satisfied

    This mini Segway is extremely fun. I was really impressed on how well the battery life lasts. I can go for well over an hour of continuous use. The only thing I do not like, if you go too fast, it will lean you back at an extreme incline. It’s a little unnerving, especially if you are go full speed. They should just prevent from leaning any further forward. I’m sure this can be resolved via a software update. If you are on the fence, go ahead and make the purchase. You won’t regret it. Save your money and go for the lite model and not the pro. I’m planning on buying the handlebar attachment which should make it more comfortable to ride.

    Segway Minilite is great for kids

    I absolutely love this sized-down version of the Segway MiniPro. The Minilite is perfect for my grand-daughter, who was not tall enough for the full-size MiniPro. Now we can ride together. It has the same speed and just about the same long range. The electronics are identical. Yet the price is significantly less.

    It's just ok. If you live in an area with a lot of hills or uneven ground I wouldn't buy it. Tops out at 10mph which didnt bother me but once you hit that speed instead of going into a cruise mode it kicks back and tries to throw you off. Also the battery doesn't last that long.

    Initially was hesitating at first but after using it for almost daily use it was great decision to buy it. I just stay 1 mile away from my work so this helps me daily. Coming to speed it’s not as speed as 10m/h but would 6+. Overall it’s too good for me

    So Easy to Learn!

    I was skeptical about buying one because I was worried I wasn't going to be able to ride it. It was really easy to learn, especially with the tutorial that comes with the app. Pleasantly surprised with how easy and simple it is to ride!!

    This is a great entry level product if you want a Segway. It’s can get you where you need to go. It works for adults under 170lbs, but the knee bar/steering is definitely made for a shorter kid. It is safe for a kiddo.

    My daughter rode one at a friend's house and decided to save her money to purchase. I love the setup and speed restriction it initially starts with. Though my daughter already knew how to ride, the speed restriction was good for my son's first time.

    Quality Scooter

    I finally received my Segway ES1 Scooter. First impression is that this is a quality scooter, It' made from solid materials and it looks tough. I've only been riding it for a few hours but I already love it. It's so much fun and it's really fast.

    Pay attention to the weight requirement, this one will only hold up to 150 lbs so it's for older kids/lighter adults. There is an aftermarket steering bar that you can buy that makes it easier to maneuver.

    This is good for a kid or someone under 170 lbs. It ha heavy. The knee bar is designed for kids, not adults. Instead of letting you go the full speed, it pulls up to slow you down.

    I bought a Segway Minipro originally for me but my newphews would take it everytime they would come over to visit. So I ended up buying this Minilite for them to ride together. It's a great price and it's perfect for them to share.

    A great product, my sons and daughter love it. Unfortunately, i did not see in the promotion of the item that it has a weight limit of 175lbs. That rules out most adult males and half of teenage boys.

    I love this Segway. We wanted something more reliable than other “hover boards” and this product exceeded our expectations. We have had it for 6 months and is still used regularly.
