Self Balancing Scooter
The latest in personal transporters is the self-balancing electric scooter. Sometimes referred to as a hoverboard (as made famous in the “Back to the Future” movie series), the two wheel scooters are electric and roll along on 6.5 inch wheels. (And they aren’t really hover boards, which don’t make contact with the ground; at least in the movies….) With a broad footboard, complete with gripping surface, the scooter is a fun choice for children and adults.
It is a simple matter to control the self-balancing electric scooter. You simply lean one way or the other and the scooter does the rest. Many scooters reach a speed of about 10 miles an hour, with a range of about 20 miles per battery charge. Acceleration is simply a matter of leaning forward. Use the two wheeled electric scooter for personal transportation or for fun. With experience, you can achieve the ability to do jumps and fakies, among other ‘cute’ moves with your self-balancing electric scooter.
Most people master riding the little scooters in about half a minute. The appeal of the scooters also extends to color choices – there are many. Just pick the one that defines your personal preference.
It is recommended that beginning riders and children wear protection such as helmets and knee pads.
