NEWS – When I say Segway, you most likely envision a two-wheeled self-balancing scooter type of vehicle like the Segway Ninebot S Max which Matt reviewed last year. If you’ve wanted a Segway but didn’t want to find space for it in your garage, then you need to take a look at the Segway Ninebot Drift W1 electric roller skates. Just like full-sized Segways, the Drift W1 features individual self-balancing e-skates that will run up to 45 minutes on a charge and have a top speed of 7.5 mph. Both kids and adults can enjoy these skates as long as their weight is less than 220 lbs. Want a pair? Head over to Amazon where they are currently priced at $469.99. If that’s too spendy for you, then check out the Gyroor Gyroshoes Hovershoes that look similar and are less than half the price at $229 per pair on Amazon.

  2. Lol a top Amazon review:
    1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good for Horse Use
    Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2019
    I bought these with the intention of putting them on my horse. However, I had to buy two boxes since only two come in a box. The first time we put them under Charly’s hooves, he was a little wobbly. It took a couple days for him to get used to it. I feel that my horse is actually slower now with these new shoes on. I also feel he is getting lazy and a little overweight. I would avoid this product, if you intend to use them on your horse.
