Segway Expands Launch of Its One S1 – a Single Wheel, Electric, Self Balancing Wonder
One S1 to be Showcased at CES 2017 from January 5-8 in Las Vegas
BEDFORD, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Segway Inc. (Segway), the world’s leading provider of electric personal transportation continues its expansion from a renowned manufacturer of commercial-grade products to also becoming an innovator in the consumer market, with the debut of its One S1 at brick and mortar retailers throughout North America.
“We launched the One S1 for pre-sale, exclusively on Amazon, on November 1 for $749 — and the response was amazing! Now we’re bringing it to specialty retailers whose customers are lifestyle and recreational riders. The One S1 is not for everyone, riding takes skill. We’ve found that riders with a certain skill set, combined with a fearless mindset, can learn to ride in about an hour. It may take other riders longer to become proficient,” said Brian Buccella, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Segway. “It makes great sense to unveil the One S1 to retail buyers at CES and give them a unique opportunity to evaluate its features, accessories and point of purchase displays first-hand, as well as see a comprehensive product demonstration, check out the new black model and have a little fun!”
One S1 Specifications & Accessories
The One S1 is compact, weighing just 25 pounds, appeals to 16+ year old riders and can accommodate up to 220 pounds. Its lithium-ion batteries deliver sustainable power and allow riders to travel up to 15 miles on a single charge, depending on payload and terrain, with a top-speed of up to 12.5 mph. In addition, riders must download the Ninebot App, which provides a New Rider Tutorial, as well as the ability to monitor speed, enable carry or lock mode, engage speed limit mode, customize lighting and more. Most importantly, in keeping with Segway’s renowned reputation for safety, the One S1 has been certified to UL’s coveted 2272 standards, which reinforces its quality.
One S1 accessories include training wheels, kickstand, protective bumpers and graphic decals. Each accessory offers retailers a chance to better meet their customers’ expectations for a completely customized riding experience.
