Top customer reviews
Both are HEAVY. Not unmanageable, but heavier than you think, especially if you've tried the "toy" versions. The weight has to be considered if you plan to lug it with you into places that don't allow riding it.
SIZE matters! The weight is matched by their size. Take a look at the pics! These devices are not toys.
How's the RIDE?
miniPRO - is more forgiving to first time riders. The "knee-bar-joystick" logically separates the steering action from the forward/backward action of the footboard. First timers can just concentrate on "balance" (getting familiar with board trying to compensate for imbalance - front to back) and just work on moving forward & backward. Next step is to lean the "knee-bar-joystick" left or right to turn the Segway. Finally, combine the two actions and you're good.
The ride is what you'd expect - you're on wheels! Remember the first time you learned to ride a bike? Same. Then it becomes second nature. There is a level of "luxury" (probably just my imagination) that comes from the larger wheels and the effective balance algorithm employed by the Segway - this is a bonus for first-time riders. My 9-year old is able to mount/dismount with trepidation and even then the Segway is working to keep her steady. Again, more forgiving. The footboard area is larger that other hoverboard devices, which provides a better sense of stability.
The APP is okay if you like your phone battery to be drained faster that you've ever seen. Read the other reviews for more details. You have access to the settings and dashboard information. Once you set it all up you don't need it if you just wanna ride the thing. The "speed restriction" and "auto lean back" annoyances that everyone has talked about - not an issue for me - I've not encountered them - and I'm guessing it's in the firmware of the machine and not in the code of the app. Temper this with my status: I'm a cautious/casual rider who just enjoys being transported on a novel device. I'm not pushing the boundaries of the device to achieve max velocity - just faster than walking, a nice jog, definitely not sprinting, although it certainly feel capable!
Segway minPRO - Bottom Line: It's fun! Easy to learn to ride!
Jetson V8 (a.k.a. Epikgo) - a tank version of the "toy" hover boards everyone has seen and tried. The drive action is the same: steering AND forward/backward action are controlled by the angle of both feet/stance simultaneously. It takes an addition level of concentration to keep the two actions in sync, especially for first-time riders. It's less forgiving for those not familiar with concept and haven't yet developed the dexterity to master an enjoyable ride. It's easy to learn, but the learning curve can be unsettling & steep for those who have trouble with balance & coordination - just watch those fail-hover board videos. For it size, the footboard seems shallow - it could be a tad deeper - your heel/toe will dangle off the edge. Not a big deal, but it could add to the comfort/enjoyment.
The Jetson Ride Ready APP is okay - seems to be a power drain like the ninebot Segway app. You don't need it to just ride the thing, but you get access to settings and dashboard info. There's 3 "quick" settings: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each affecting Max Speed, Driving Force, and Steering Sensitivity accordingly. This helps those of us who are less coordinated make the transition easier. You can customize each setting to your individual needs. I use Intermediate to achieve an enjoyable ride experience.
Jetson V8 - Bottom line: FUN, but be ready to take a spill if you have trouble with coordination AND balance simultaneously. Rugged and it will show its abuse quickly. (The fenders scrape the ground when its pivoted too far.) I deduct 1 star for the floppy resting state - when it is at rest and you didn't pay attention to its orientation, it will rotate/pivot either forward on backward and the fenders will hit/drag on the ground. OR, if you wipe out the fenders will take the most damage! Along with that deduction, is intrusive nature of the APP, but it tracking your location and activities - you have the option to bypass, but its still creepy to think that you could be tracked by this thing.
Jetson is more rugged, more parts made of metal (like the fenders). Segway has plastic fenders and I wouldn't feel good about it being dropped or hitting objects - feels like the parts will break or crack much sooner than the Jetson. The Jetson is a tank, where the Segway is a passenger car. Both will stand up to regular use, but the Jetson feels like it will take more abuse.
The Segway is better for beginners and will grow with more advance riders. The Jetson does have a beginner setting, but the overall ride experience requires more coordination & balance especially when learning - the fun begins with the advanced setting - no limitations other than the inherent restrictions, but at least there's no nanny!
Both are well worth the special price during the recent Black Friday and Today's Deals, etc. - they we both the same price (599)!
We are keeping both... they each have their quirks, but build quality, apps, and most of all ride enjoyment make them the best bang for the buck for personal mobility devices!
The instructions are simple but complete so you know what to do without having to digest an essay of information. Amazon does not include all of the features in its website, but the built-in bluetooth speak and customizable lights make it more fun for the kids when you download the Jetson App. I purchased it because the battery is a Samsing, it is all-terrain as far as hoverboards go, and I could configure the max speed according to the skill level of my kids. The beginner level keeps them at less than 5 mph so that they can learn how to start & stop, maneuver and do tricks without going too fast. I make them wear a helmet and they've fallen a few times, but neither of them have any fear of getting back on.
I am about 200lbs. and can ride the V8 with no issues. It's a good core workout because my balance is not as good as the girls, but it's getting easier. I highly recommend the Jetson and will enjoy it year round.
