 Q   What does riding a Segway PT feel like?
 A   Riding the Segway PT feels like nothing you've ever experienced because there's never been anything like it. Step on and your instinct will be to steady yourself, as you would on anything with two wheels. But almost immediately you'll realize that the Segway PT is balancing for you, almost like it has become an extension of you. Just lean forward a little and you'll see that the Segway PT isn't moving you on its own; it's moving in response to you and what you tell it to do. It all feels natural and really cool. Be sure to review the User Materials before using a Segway PT.
   
 Q   How does it move? How does it balance?
 A   The Segway PT uses LeanSteer™ Technology to move you from Point A to B. Gently move the LeanSteer frame and handlebar left or right in the direction you want to travel and feel the machine respond almost instantly. The Segway PT balances by using five micro-machined angular rate sensors and two accelerometers that sense the changing terrain and your body position at 100 times per second.

   
 Q   Are Segway PT's legal in my state?
 A   While in general no state prohibitions exist in the United States, local regulations may exist. We recommend that you check your local regulations prior to use in public areas. An updated list of domestic regulations by state is available at http://www.segway.com/regulatory.

   
 Q   Is the Segway PT more efficient than a car?
 A   Yes. The Segway PT is 11 times more efficient than the average American car, and over three times more efficient than even the highest-mileage scooters. As a zero-emissions vehicle, the Segway PT can also go indoors. It does draw electric power during recharge, but that electricity causes fourteen times less greenhouse gas emissions than driving a car.

   
 Q   Are there weight limits for the Segway PT?
 A   Yes, Segway sets weight limits for rider safety and to reduce the risk of damage to the Segway PT. A rider must not be less than 100 lbs. (45 kg). The maximum payload (which includes rider and all cargo) for the Segway PT is 260 lbs. (117 kg). The total weight of any handlebar cargo plus any additional attachments hanging from the handlebar should not exceed 10 lbs. (4.5 kg).
   
 Q   How fast can the Segway PT travel?
 A   Each Segway PT comes with two operational settings, "beginner" and "standard". Beginner setting is set to 6mph/13kph, and the standard setting is set to 12.5mph/20kph. 12.5 mph is roughly equal to a 5-minute mile, a really fast run.

   
 Q   How far can a Segway PT go on a single charge?
 A   Depending on your base model, payload, riding style and terrain, a single charge can support up to 24 miles/38km of travel. You’ll be amazed at just how far that really is.
   
 Q   What’s a glide?
 A   A glide is a trip you take riding your Segway PT. We like the name because it’s simple and very accurately describes the motion of riding, which is smooth and even, like you’re gliding across a surface. Gliding is a great way to meet new people, see new sights, or just get out and enjoy the day.

   
 Q   Can I use the Segway PT in the rain?
 A   Yes. The device is completely sealed to allow it to operate in wet weather. Just be careful on slippery surfaces.
   
 Q   What’s the Segway Smile?
 A   The Segway Smile is exhibited by nearly everyone who’s ever ridden a Segway PT. The Segway PT is more than a product; it’s an experience unlike anything you’ve tried before. Going from place to place becomes fun. Riders become empowered pedestrians that cover more ground, work smarter, become more productive and move more intelligently. This knowledge manifests itself in an ear-to-ear grin. Not sure what we’re talking about? Stop someone riding a Segway PT the next time you see one and you’ll understand. You’ll probably smile back.
   
 Q   Are Gift Certificates available?
 A   Yes, call the office to make these arrangements. Gift Certificates can be emailed for your convenience.
