Features and Characteristics of Segway Ninebot S-Plus
Segway Ninebot S-Plus is top model of Segway mini hoverboards and represents ultimate mini hoverboard offering, besides features available with miniPRO and miniLITE, numerous additional features and characteristics are present.
First let’s talk about downsides. Firts downside of S-Plus is non existing trolley handle in case that you need to walk your Segway around (in case of empty battery or when you in area non suitable for Segway ride). This could be very important when you know that S-Plus is noticeably heavier than the miniPRO, at 36lbs, versus the 28lb miniPRO. True, you can use knee pads as a troley, but this is not so sleek.
Also, you need to be aware that mud-guards on the S-Plus are now part of the base meaning you will need to spend much more money to replace them in case of damage. And one of major downsides is the absence of height-adjustable knee bar and this could be very annoying for tall riders making the steering much more difficult and even dangerous for them.
But, not all is so bad at S-Plus. There are many important, useful and cool additions and upgrades like 11″ tires versus 10,5″ at miniPRO enabling faster ride than on miniPRO and adding more security on rougher terrains. The maximum speed of S-Plus is 12,5 mph. Except more speed larger tires are giving bigger driving radius of unbelievable 22,5 miles or almost two hours of ride. It is important for riders who are using this Segway as a commuter vehicle.
Second important upgrade is “follow me” feature with remote control. However, it doesn’t mean that S-Plus will follow you around the corner or obstacle, it will go in straight line behind you and if you are far away from the vehicle check if there are any obstacles because it will bump the obstacle. So, you will need to set closer follow distance between Segway and remote.
And third important upgrade are 800W dual motors for greater power and speed.
Also, there are some new cool features at S-Plus. The steering column is wider and has a storage for remote control, LED lights are placed on the rim of wheel hubs and LED headlight is positioned on top of the steering bar giving better lightning and more futuristic look. And, at the end, Segway S-Plus represents the most exclusive Segway mini hoverboard where the rider will be noticed for sure.
We recommend it for those willing to pay an extra price for prestige and quality!!!
