NINEBOT BY SEGWAY MINIPRO
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.
