Segway Ninebot Product Brochure (CES 2018) - includes the One Z

For anyone interested in the product line brochure Segway Ninebot had available at CES 2018.....

 

Some interesting tidbits:

  • by the language, seems Segway is marketing the Z as an "enthusiast" model, ie. not the bread-and-butter money-maker many on the forums seem to want this model to be.
  • the Ninebot One 16" series is notably absent from the product line, so I'm guessing that has been officially end-of-life'd.
  • not surprisingly, as evidenced by the ordering of their product line, Segway is focusing more on their new cheapo e-kickboard scooters and 2-wheeled Mini series

This thing looks like they just made a one wheel version of their existing Segway 2 wheel. Makes sense to use the existing tire lines for the full sized Segways adapt to a one wheel version. It was the two wheeled Segway that gave me the confidence and technique to ride an EUC. The EUC becomes a logical extension of their model line for those who want more speed and off road capabilities than their current lineup can provide. 

The Ninebot one models were really only more skillful space saving versions of their two wheeled lineup. I am surprised this wider tire design didnt appear earlier do to the similarity of gyroscopic balance and drive in the two vehicles in that company. I mean Segway has got to have a municipality sized warehouse for all the unopened spare Segway tires throughout the decades. :rolleyes:

This the first time reading about custom sound effects.  Wonder what they sound like?

Is a pneumatic tyre a tubeless tyre?

Maybe. Maybe not. .it could ofcourse, but It means it uses air for pressure, like in the Subaru Xt coupe and XT6 suspensions.

No trolley???

According to the Segway reps, still in play. Maybe they’re just refining it(?)

Pneumatic literally means “filled with air”, but in actual use with tire terminology seems to loosely indicate non-tubeless tires (tubed or solid) AFAICS

The helmets make it look like an enthusiast wheel.  I imagine the trolley handle is built in.  Press a button and the handle lifts up.

I wish. We've already seen the trolley handle, it bolts onto the back. I like the custom look, it also lets you lean the wheel back to stand it up. But I'd prefer an internal handle.

 My dream is that you push a button, the handle pops up.  It's kind of scary what Ninebot can do. Artificial Intelligence and what not.  High quality product, maybe?

Hmmm, maybe a Loomo version where you say: "hey Loomo, walk with me"... then your wheel rides up beside you and cute little arms pop-up to hold your hand.  :efee8319ab:

It was told by sales manager who visited Ninebot last autumn. Treat it as rumors.

Handle looks cool, but chances that it will survive first wheel fall / tumble are rather low.  handle struts must be more "hidden" into the body of the wheel. Any part of the wheel which protrude will have tendency to hit the tarmac much stronger than those streamlined parts, so get bent / broken easily.  However this CAN be designed...   It all takes awfully long....

This one may be even cuter... ?

Another robot ride-able... CanguRo is impractical (too slow), but reminds me more of a dog than a kangaroo. ?

On second glance, kinda evil looking...
