What is a Segway gyropod?

Gyropode is the generic term for a self-stabilized two-wheeled vehicle. It is a single-seater electric vehicle, consisting of a platform with two wheels on which the user stands, a gyroscopic stabilization system and a handle for holding and driving.

The first gyropod put on the market is the Segway PT (Personal Transporter). This revolutionary vehicle was invented in 2001 by the American Dean Kamen. Contrary to fake news, the inventor of the Segway is not dead.

The Segway brand is the leader in the manufacture of this type of device. The gyropod is a range of two-wheeled single-seater vehicles based on technology with gyroscopes. Thanks to these gyroscopes, the gyropod is capable of self-stabilization.

Not only does this system allow the gyropod user to achieve perfect and automatic balance, whether he is stationary or in motion. But also, thanks to this technique, the driver of a gyropod is sure never to lose his balance or fall, whatever the speed at which he is driving. Of course, it is advisable to respect the rules of use and safety and not to rush without stopping!

The Segway is easy to use

We are always surprised by the great shape of the seniors and their extraordinary capacity to discover new technologies. They are sometimes the most enthusiastic about riding a Segway for the first time! Also, they are often the most comfortable to drive a Segway and enjoy a little ride. As you can see, there is sometimes a minimum age to drive in some countries (12 years old in France for example), but there is no maximum age to taste the joys of the gyropod.

In just a few minutes, everyone can move forward, backward, and even turn on themselves. And that without having to look for its balance.

It seems astonishing but it is real: there is neither gas pedal handle, nor brake pedal. It is thus only by inclining your body towards the front that the gyropod will advance. And, by straightening up towards the back, it will stop. To turn, you just have to push the handlebars to the side and the gyropod will take you exactly where you want.

So... shall we go for a ride together?
