Segways and Segway Alternatives

What is a Segway? A Segway is a stand on personal electric transporter that works off of balance.  You lean forward to go forward and back to go back, you steer by the steering shaft by turning it either left or right to go left or either right.  Most Segways cost $5000 and up,  depending on what type you get and the accessories and features it has.   We have seen some segways for sale go as much as $10,000.00 ( Although this was a pretty cool tricked out one and rare in todays market )

Here we will be showing you some excellent segway alternatives and some videos throughout the site.  Not that we are putting segway down, or taking anything away from them.   Segway is the pioneer in personal transportation and is considered by some to be the Cadillac of Transporters, our goal is just to introduce you to some Segway alternative type Personal Transporters that you may not of know existed, and if your going to spend that kind of money on a Personal Transporter you may as well get a good deal from a reputable company who offers segways alternatives.

Above we have the Segway Style OB-2 Personal Transporter.  We can speak first hand about the OB-2 off road transporter as we here at Roboscooters have one we use for demos sessions.  The OB-2 works just like a segway, but in our Opinion is the Best Segway Alternative for the Money you can buy.

The OB-2 Transporter has many features that a Segway does not have and works the exact same way a segway does if not better, To Be Determined of course, this is just our personal opinion as we have video evidence ( Made right here by the Company who offers it ) and first hand knowledge of what the OB-2 Personal Transporter will and won’t do.

Off Road OB-2 Segway Style

We put the OB-2 Personal Transporter though some pretty rough stuff out at Crawford lake here in Laurel Hill, NC not to long ago and uploaded a few to youtube.  You can see one on the main site at roboscooters and one in the link below where we left off after I slipped down a really steep slope with it. ( No worries, I and the Transporter were fine in the end and we carried on )

So, What Are Segways and Segway alternatives Used for?  Segways are used for a variety of things,… From Hunting, Fishing, Golfing, Events, Security Forces, anything that involves walking a segway can be used for… Even Helping the Slightly Disabled enjoy life a little better.  A segway or a Segway alternative does require you to be able to step up and balance, that is why we say Slightly Disabled, as it will really depend on weather you can step up and balance yourself on a platform that has sensors under it to determine which way you are shifting your weight.  Remember a segway or segway alternative moves forward or backward by Balance and whichever way you are shifting your balance when you step up on the platform is the way the Transporter is going to go.  Many first timers experience the segway shuffle…. ( Thats where you step up and lean forward an backward suddenly and the machine does exactly what it’s designed to do and follows your balance )

It is always recommended that first timers who have never been on a balancing transporter like a segway have someone who will spot for them and help them to keep their balance the first time they attempt to ride.  After you have gotten the feel for it, riding a segway or any Quality segway alternative is no big deal anymore,  it’s like riding a bike, once you know how,  you know how.
