miniPRO Product Specifications
Developed with patented,
advanced self-balancing technology, the miniPRO’s on-board computer
tracks the rider’s movements at over 100 times per second via complex
algorithms, sensors and high-speed processors. Its safety controls
monitor the miniPRO’s smart technology enabling the device to learn and
adapt to the user’s riding habits and its 10.5″ inflatable tires ensure
an ultra-smooth ride both indoors and outdoors. In addition, riders can
monitor speed, view dashboard performance data, customize lighting on
the unit, engage a tamper-proof security alarm and remotely operate the
device, unmanned, with the Ninebot by Segway App.
The miniPRO provides an agile riding experience for ages 16 to 60 and
makes it easy for riders to comfortably ride, stop and make 360 degree
turns. Designed with the North American consumer in mind, it features a
powerful, high-performance lithium-ion battery for sustainable power and
can be charged anywhere. The miniPRO allows riders to travel distances
of up to 14 miles on a single charge with a top-speed of 10 mph. The
device’s aircraft-grade magnesium alloy frame is durable and compact
enough to fit into any vehicle.
The miniPRO will be available exclusively on
Amazon before being available at additional major and specialty
retailers. Pre-sales begin on Amazon June 1, 2016, with orders being
