Australian T3 - - SELECT -

Six­teen years af­ter its launch, the Segway still looks fu­tur­is­tic. This pocket-sized ver­sion uses a pair of 800-watt mo­tors and sen­sors that mon­i­tor body move­ment to main­tain bal­ance. Op­er­a­tion couldn’t be sim­pler: glide for­wards and back­wards by tilt­ing your feet, and left and right by lean­ing your knees into the height-ad­justable con­trol bar. The 18km/h top speed is se­date but never slug­gish, even when trav­el­ling up­hill, and a sin­gle bat­tery will clock up around 22km. Anti-theft tech makes it harder to steal, while head­lights and turn­ing in­di­ca­tors are ideal for night rid­ing.
