Product Description

Why walk when you can glide. The i2 model can take you places that a car or bicycle can't, including inside many stores, office buildings, businesses, airports, elevators and trains. Although they're ideal for short jaunts, PTs can travel as far as 24 miles/38 km on a single battery charge, depending on terrain, payload and riding style. To move forward or backward on the PT, the rider just leans slightly forward or backward. To turn left or right, the rider simply moves the LeanSteer frame left or right. The wireless infokey controller allows for custom speed settings up to 12.5 mph, a built-in theft alarm, trip counter and other display features. With the i2 you get the sense of power and speed, yet you also feel a sense of safety and absolute control. It all feels natural, safe and instinctive. The PT also has many benefits for you and the environment: less gas to buy, easier to park and less wear on your car. It can also help reduce the impact of global warming by reducing our greenhouse gas output and consumption of imported fossil fuels. A built-in charging device allows you to recharge your batteries into any standard electric outlet and only costs on average 12 cents a day to charge. Experience the thrill and ease of riding a PT today and see for yourself why we call it the i2 smile.

I didn't buy my segway through amazon, but have owned one for four years. First off the segway is a life saver for me. Years ago I was in a pretty bad accident that rendered me at first 100 percent immobile, currently I get around with adaptive devices, canes, forearm crutches and such. That is why the segway is so awesome for me; I can travel in miles instead of meters (yes I just compared standard to metric). So if you don't know, the segway travels about 12 mph for up to 20 miles and weighs around 110 lbs.

My only complaint is when I first received my I2, it had a bad sensor in the footpad so it always thought someone was standing on it and didn't turn off without a fight. Segway fixed it but I had to pay about 60 dollars in shipping, luckily the awesome local retailer of segways helped out with half of the costs which was about 150 moo-las total.

It does well in snow and ice, just be careful. I live in Utah and we have cold winters that get to around 0 degrees, if the seg is that cold, forget about going far. The batteries do not like to operate at that temp. around 35 is when it perks back up. Overheating does not seem to be an issue with these units.

Good luck traveling low profile on one of these, everyday I receive a plethora of feedback, some good, some bad. A lot of people seem to think that because they see me on one that I am lazy, especially around my college campus. It is never fun to be teased, some people stand in my way and try not to let me pass, my only defense is an Ipod and patience.

Local retailers have not treated me well, I have really good control after so many years of practice, but I still get kicked out of stores. They don't recognize it as a mobility aid for me.

I decided to buy one of these (used) after going on a Segway Tour. I've had mine for a month now and am very happy with it. It's intuitive to use and the charge lasts a long time. Some friends have tried it, too and learned how to use it fairly quickly. I bought it for fun, however once I get a job close enough to my house I will be commuting on this wonderful device. So far I've only ridden it a max of 6 miles at one time, but plan to take it much farther maybe to it's maximum range eventually which is up to 25 miles depending on how it's ridden/ batteries, etc. The 6-mile ride made only one "bar" drop on the battery level. Impressive. I feel like I'm gliding along and can see so many things around my neighborhood with little effort. I plan on using my Segway along local and distant bike trails. As well as being "green" it's just plain fun! It can be cost prohibitive to initially purchase, however you can always get one used as I did. It is very well-made. There is nothing on this thing that feels or looks cheap so you do get what you pay for. The only maintenance items I can see are the tires ($100), charging the batteries ($?) and replacing the batteries ($1800), which should last a long time as long as they are taken care of and not allowed to completely discharge. The Segway will shut itself off before it detects a complete discharge to prevent damage to the batteries. Also it has regenerative braking.

Things I've learned:

- You can keep it unplugged for a few days without affecting the battery level. (But you are supposed to leave it plugged in all the time to protect the very expensive Li-Ion batteries)
- It fits into the trunk of a camry fully assembled if you drop the seats.

My wife and I bought a pair of Segways three years ago. They are intensely fun and very useful for exploring new areas when sightseeing. You can cover a small town in a couple hours and, unlike when using a car, you are able to really see everything around you and stop as often as you like without causing a traffic jam. They are much more maneuverable than a bicycle, allowing you to stop anywhere without fear of falling over. You are also a foot taller than you've ever been, able to see over fences, etc., instead of ending up being shorter, as you are in a car or bike.

Segways are typically permitted on sidewalks as well as streets, and we have had ours in five-star hotels, as well. The tires are made of silicon, not rubber, expressly so they won't leave black marks on marble floors. It is so much fun to cruise up to a fancy hotel, your roll-along suitcase trailing from one hand, up the handicap ramp, through the handicap door, across the lobby to the registration desk. You check in, still standing on your Segway, then cruise right onto the elevator, wheel around, press your floor, and the next thing you know you're cruising down the hallway and easing into your room.

The downside is service: We've had two battery failures, both under warrantee, as well as a gyro failure, also under warrantee. The problem is you have to slog the Segway to an authorized dealer. Batteries the dealer can replace, but anything else requires a month-to-six-week trip back to the factory. Once you've gotten used to using your Segway all the time, this is intolerable. Unfortunately, we're hooked, so no matter what it takes, we'll want our Segway back.

If you don't know whether you want one, take a Segway tour of a city near you. They'll teach you how to use it, then take you on a trip around town. Much fun. We did one in DC, then one in Paris. Then, we bought.
