miniPRO Product Specifications
Developed with patented, advanced self-balancing technology, the miniPRO’s on-board computer tracks the rider's movements at over 100 times per second via complex algorithms, sensors and high-speed processors. Its safety controls monitor the miniPRO’s smart technology enabling the device to learn and adapt to the user's riding habits and its 10.5" inflatable tires ensure an ultra-smooth ride both indoors and outdoors. In addition, riders can monitor speed, view dashboard performance data, customize lighting on the unit, engage a tamper-proof security alarm and remotely operate the device, unmanned, with the Ninebot by Segway App.

Designed with the North American consumer in mind, it features a powerful, high-performance lithium-ion battery for sustainable power and can be charged anywhere. The miniPRO allows riders to travel distances of up to 14 miles on a single charge with a top-speed of 10 mph. The device’s aircraft-grade magnesium alloy frame is durable and compact enough to fit into any vehicle.
