We could say that Ninebot by Segway miniPRO is a gentleman’s choice among hoverbords. This self-balancing scooter may be the only transportation vehicle rather than just fun gadget and numerous users agreed with this.

It’s bigger, safer, faster and you can ride it further than other models. Unlike other hoverboards, it has 10.5-inch air inflated wheels for smoother ride over bumps and with maximum speed of 10 mph you can drive it for 19 miles before recharging it. Some thoughtful design touches shows us that this is more an adult transportation vehicle than just a fun toy.

Ninebot by Segway miniPRO gives you the best value for your money.
