You can now transform your Ninebot by Segway Minipro into a steerable go-kart.
The kit retrofits seats, a steering wheel and a front bumper, as well as rear and front wheels onto the Segway Mini Pro.
In terms of safety , the gokart conversion kit is excellent as it comes equipped with double anti-collision protection , and the outside is a plastic energy absorption layer which effectively reduces the impact force.
The inner layer is a steel main beam, which provides high strength protection for the body and prevents deformation of the car body;
Moreover, the vehicle adopts the "electronic brake + mechanical hand brake" double brake design.
The miniPro is a miniature version of the original, upright Segway, that's similar to a hoverboard, but adds a padded steering stick in the middle of the device to allow for easier maneuvering.
Promotional images of the go-kart show a father and son riding side by side, suggesting that the steering wheel and seat can be adjusted based on the rider's needs.
It's unclear when Segway plans on releasing the product or what it will cost, but Abacus speculated that it could be launched July 24, citing unnamed reports.
There's no information on whether it will cost more than the miniPro, which is priced at £670.
The kit retrofits seats, a steering wheel and a front bumper, as well as rear and front wheels onto the Ninebot Mini Pro. Both the seat and the wheel can be adjusted based on the rider's needs
