FAQ

What is Segway?

A Segway is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle. You will control the Segway with your body. The user commands the Segway to go forward by shifting their weight forward on the platform, and backward by shifting their weight backward. It stops as soon as you stand upright. It is not hard to find the right balance as the Segway is self-balancing. It is like skiing out of snow, child’s play. Take a look on the page ‘What is a Segway’ for more information.

People who are 16 years or older can use a Segway. Segway Rotterdams has helmets, it’s required to wear a helmet when you use a Segway. It’s also important to wear good shoes, no heels and no flip-flops. Take a look on the page ‘What is a Segway’ for more information.
