Segway’s New Electric Unicycle Attempts To Inject Cool Back Into The Brand
The S1 is a personal transportation device that features a sleek design and can travel up to 15 miles on a single charge
Two wheels good, one wheel better! Why commute to work on two wheels when you can ride a one-wheeled wonder? Segway, the brainchild of the two-wheeled, battery-powered vehicle commonly rode by tourists, have released the Segway One (S1)—an electric unicycle. Unlike the traditional Segway where the device would keep riders in balance, riders have to focus on maintaining their balance themselves.
The model looks as if the creators took the wheel off a single Segway, covered it in metal and LED lights, and added two pedals for the rider’s feet on either side. 16.6 inches by 7.2 inches by 17.6 inches in dimensions, the device weighs a total of 25 pounds and can hold up to 220 pounds in weight.
