You control the Mini Segway by shifting your body weight. Many perform the correct movements directly intuitively, as they are very similar to regular walking. For example, if you want to start walking forward, you lean forward slightly and then take the first step.
It is very similar to the Mini Segway. Leaning forward also causes the Mini Segway to start moving. On the other hand, leaning backward breaks the Segway or, if you lean back further, causes it to drive backward. You put weight on the opposite leg if you want to go a curve. So for a left turn, you put weight on your right leg.
Two-wheeled electric scooters can allow the segway to move. The user must move their body in the direction of the front. The vehicle will travel faster if more weight is pushed in front. It would help if you leaned slightly back to break the Segway. The Segway will then slow down until it stops completely. This steering column helps to turn the Segway in the right direction
Handling a Self-Balancing Scooter
Controlling the Self Balancing Scooter is unfamiliar at first. It’s probably comparable to standing on a skateboard, inline skates, or ice skates for the first time. In the beginning, it still feels very shaky. But that’s normal!
Your own body must first understand which movements it has to perform to keep your balance on the board; however, once it has been understood that you can stand on the Self Balance Board wholly relaxed and without any effort, it feels completely natural.
The nice thing about the hoverboard is that this learning process is swift for most people. It usually takes less than 15 minutes for most people to stand comfortably on the board and be able to steer it. So, the entry hurdle is meager; you quickly have a sense of achievement, which means fun!
Once you get started, then you are entirely safe on the e-board. The coated platforms also help to prevent slipping. You can drive safely even on wet roads thanks to the mudguards and the profiled tires. Of course, in our hoverboard test, we again explicitly point out whether a board is suitable for wet roads.
Drive the hoverboard forward/backward, and brake steer the hoverboard
Incidentally, cornering is analogous to skiing, ice skating, or inline skating. Anyone who has mastered one of these sports will have no problems with the Self Balancing Scooter. But even if you have no previous experience, learning is easy.
The more you lean forward, the faster the acceleration. Unfortunately, acceleration is underestimated by most at the beginning. You lean too far forward, the hoverboard jumps on, and the rider gets right back off. So that doesn’t happen, here’s our tip:
It is usually enough to bend forward just a little bit to think about it. The body then automatically turns on a tiny bit. For starters, that’s enough to start a slight forward drive with the Mini Segway. If this works well, it can increase bit by bit.
For the first attempts, you should also ensure enough space. For example, if you make the first “walking attempts” in the apartment or your own house, you should put valuable objects out of the way. In addition, you should always wear protective clothing at the beginning.
