FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to wear a helmet?
It is our policy to require riders to wear a helmet. One will be provided to you free of charge.

Is there a minimum age for the rental/tour?
Due to insurance requirements, you must be 21 years of age to rent a Segway HT. If you are between the ages of 14 and 21, you must weigh at least 100 lbs and no more than 250 lbs, have a parent or legal guardian sign a liability release, and accompany you on the rental or tour.

How far will the Segway HT travel?
The Segway HT can travel up to 24 miles on a single charge depending on riding conditions.

How fast can the Segway HT travel?
Every Segway HT has three different keys that riders may choose from depending on riding environment and level of experience. The Beginner Key (maximum speed of 6 mph and slowest turning rate), allows riders to gain confidence using the machine. The Sidewalk Key (maximum speed of 8 mph and a medium turning rate), allows riders to adapt well in pedestrian environments. The Open Environment Key (maximum speed of 12.5 mph and the most responsive turning rate), allows riders to comfortably cover open spaces. Riders are responsible for riding their Segway HT at appropriate speeds.

How safe is the Segway HT?
The utmost care and research has gone into ensuring that the Segway HT is safe. The Segway HT's balancing technology is truly revolutionary and provides an exceptional riding experience. The Segway HT has redundant systems and sophisticated alerts built into its design, and many thousands of hours of use have demonstrated that the Segway HT is safe when used appropriately. It is important that Segway HT riders understand their responsibility to ride safely. Proper skill level and understanding of the Segway HT prevents injuries caused by loss of control or misuse.

Who can ride the Segway HT?
The Segway HT is designed to be operated by a wide range of people after receiving orientation. No special skills are required. The rider must be able to do the following: Step on and off the Segway HT without assistance, which requires physical abilities similar to climbing and descending stairs without assistance or use of a handrail.

  • Rider must weigh between 100 and 250 pounds (for the i Series) or 100 and 200 pounds (for the p Series)
  • Rider must be able to operate the steering control with his or her left hand

Segway recommends that riders be 16 years or older. It is important to note that the Segway HT has not been designed, tested, or approved as a medical device.

Where can I safely and legally ride the Segway HT?
The Segway HT is designed to operate in any place that you can safely walk. It will transport you over any surface where the wheels can gain traction, such as roads, sidewalks, grass, and dirt. In many cities you'll be able to take the Segway HT any place that you are allowed to walk. In California, the state passed a law to classify the Segway HT as a pedestrian, making it legal to ride wherever you can walk (private property excluded). Feel free to enjoy the bike paths and sidewalks, but please be careful and courteous.

Does the Segway HT work indoors?
Yes. Every Segway HT is designed to work anywhere people walk. In order to support indoor operation, Michelin created a special tire that is non-marring. The Segway HT is narrower than a standard doorway and is clean and quiet. There are zero emissions.
