Ratings and Reviews
App needs some work. Bluetooth connectivity is a challenge from the start...
We bought this product based on using it at a friend’s house but didn’t realize the associated app is so flaky. The Segway product itself is awesome however the app needs some work. Out of the box, updating firmware was a challenge with disconnection and app locking etc. had to restart the app to figure out what was going on. During the tutorials, it continually disconnects for some reason. Hopefully we can finish the tutorials to unlock all features. Will update review as progress is made.
There are no brakes!
In order to slow, the device has to place your center of gravity behind you, just like when moving forward, it has to be placed ahead of you. You’re essentially “falling” in the direction you want to go, which advances or reverses the wheels.
With no physical brakes, the system HAS TO TILT YOU BACK to slow or stop. The other thing it has to do is manage power. If the top-speed was unlimited, it would not be able to bank enough reserve power to put impulse torque on the wheels when demanded for safe braking, etc.
These are necessary evils. If a Russian hacker has in fact, increased the speed limit via firmware, your stopping distance may end up being longer than acceptable. The company does not want this kind of liability, so they keep it reasonable. They also cap it at around 10mph to reflect max speed for EPAMD devices in target markets.
There are so many great things about this Segway but one major flaw really ruins the experience. As one approaches the device’s max speed the Segway automatically starts breaking and tilts backward slowing your speed by 30% or more. After it drops down to around 6 MPH it starts picking up speed again then immediately breaks itself back down to 6 MPH or so. It will continue to do this over and over and as it does it will reduce the max speed you are allowed to travel until you start riding at a slower average speed over a long period of time. I understand the need for a speed limit, however, the device should just cap-out at the speed and stay at it, not break and speed up and break and speed up over and over. It’s far more dangerous doing so as it tilts you back and forth in the process. It has so much potential to be a lot of fun but instead it forces you do ride at an average of 8.2 MPH even though the limit can say up to 12 MPH (or advertised as 10 MPH).
