Find My Smart Tech
Segway has partnered with Apple to integrate the Find My technology into Segway products. Riders can locate their Segway through the Find My network on the Find My app through their iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer. Riders can conveniently find where their Segway is on the in-app map.
Additionally, in-app functionality allows riders to play a loud, distinct tone on their Segway. This tone will serve as a helpful tool when locating the Segway. This new technology Segway has implemented serves riders with even more connectivity outside the Segway-Ninebot app and offers Segway riders enhanced peace of mind.
Transformers x Segway
In an exciting collaboration between Hasbro and Segway-Ninebot, beloved Transformers characters Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Decepticon leader, Megatron, come to life as Segway gokarts and electric scooters. The Segway x Transformers limited edition series has launched in China, the US and Canada, comprising the Optimus Prime GoKart Pro, Bumblebee GoKart Pro, Megatron GT2 Superscooter, and Bumblebee C8 kids kickscooter.
This collector-worthy limited-run Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Gokart Pros are currently available for sale in China across ecommerce platforms. For fans based in the US and Canada, the Bumble Gokart Pro, Megatron GT2 and Bumblebee C8 kids scooter is currently available at Store.Segway.com, with Optimus Prime Gokart Pro making its heroic entrance in Summer 2023.
The viral Gokart PRO made a splash upon its debut. Tested for 2 years behind-the-scenes by a professional gokart driver, with engine and body weight distribution of 60% in the rear, and finely-tuned steering and durability, it made drifting off of actual gokart tracks both safe and thrilling.
Segway is excited to introduce a sneak peak at the Gokart PRO 2, with more details to come in 2023.
