The Segway Personal Transporter is the first ever self-balancing, electric-powered transportation device. With dimensions no larger than the average adult body and the ability to emulate human balance, the Segway uses the same space as a pedestrian, and can go wherever a person can walk.
Dynamic stabilization is the essence of the Segway. Dynamic stabilization enables the Segway to work seamlessly with the body’s movements. Gyroscopes and tilt sensors in the unit monitor a rider’s centre of gravity at about 100 times a second. When the rider leans slightly forward, the Segway moves forward. When the rider leans slightly back, the Segway moves backward.
The utmost care and research has gone into ensuring that the Segway is safe. The Segway’s balancing technology is truly revolutionary and provides an exceptional riding experience. The Segway has redundant systems and sophisticated alerts built into its design, and many thousands of hours of use have demonstrated that the Segway is safe when used appropriately. It is important that Segway riders understand their responsibility to ride safely. Proper skill level and understanding of the Segway prevents injuries caused by loss of control or misuse.
You can always check if there are places available on the same day of your tour. However it is quite possible that there will be no places. We suggest you reserve as much in advance as you can to secure your desired date and tour.
Although riding a Segway is relatively easy to do and learn, we do require that all riders be at least 15 years of age. Also, riders should have the ability to make motions such as climbing and descending stairs without assistance. The Segway is not appropriate for those weighing under 100 pounds or over 250 pounds. Each of our glides begins with a 30-minute training session on the Riva. We will practice on the Segway so that everyone feels comfortable and ready to go out and conquer Split.
