Drift W1 e-Skates are motorized and self-stabilizing rollers based on the same principle as the Segway Segway. They are presented as a mode of transport of the future for the “younger generation”.
After the Segway and other self-stabilized machines, the rollers are transformed into high-tech devices. The Segway personal transportation specialist has just offered a glimpse of its Drift W1 e-Skates, which are similar to two mini-hoverboards placed under the feet. The manufacturer describes them as “a perfect object for the younger generation, who dares to stand out and create new trends”.
Light, small and portable, these e-Skates have a practical and fun potential. Unlike conventional rollers, Drift W1s do not attach to the feet. These self-stabilized rollers are equipped with a non-slip sole that welcomes the shoe. Avoiding an accident or storing everything in a bag becomes easier.
Designed using 800 patents, Segway technology will monitor the user’s center of gravity. The brand says it has made safety a priority. His e-Skates have obtained “several international certifications”. They meet in particular UL and CE standards.
So far, the manufacturer has revealed little information regarding the specifications, price or availability of Segway Drift W1 on the market. A press conference scheduled in Los Angeles on July 24 will provide more information. In addition, the e-Skates will be presented at the German IFA 2018, which will be held from August 31 to September 5, in Berlin.
