Frequently asked questions
About Segway® PT's
A Segway is a self balancing transportation device that allows you to freely move around where ever you want to go. It’s super easy to use a Segway – it uses a gyroscope to detect the movement of your body. When you lean forward it goes forward, when you lean backwards it reverses. The Segway slows you down if you are going too fast and it will hold your balance perfectly as long as the tires have traction. You should never jump or do tricks on a Segway. Segway Cruise only uses the latest Segway models as we are owned by the Segway Distributor in Denmark
Is it difficult to cruise on a Segway® PT?
No, and our trained guides will give you all the training you need, to feel safe on your Segway. But most of our guests are ready to go within 5 minutes, once you get the connection with the Segway, you are ready to go! The Segway uses a gyroscope to detect your movement: lean forward to drive, lean backwards to slow down or stop, and control the directions with the handlebar – it really is that simple! As the authorised Segway tour operator in the country we always have the latest machines for your safety!
Our spacious waterfront training ground is the ideal private setting to learn and practice. Our location makes it possible for you to take off through quiet ‘no car’ paths and ease into the traffic.
