The Easy Glider takes Segway for a ride …
… and for a cheaper price!
Admit it. You thought that the Segway was way cool, but the sticker shock simply made it not worth it. Now, the Easy Glider may take the Segway on a run for it’s money. It may sound like something “as seen on TV that promises amazing fitness results,” but this new transportation gizmo has a serious pedigree.
Winner of this year’s prestigious ISPO Brand New Award, the main wheel of the Easy Glider is powered by a 360-watt electric motor and will garner a top speed of 13 mph within a 10 to 15 mile range. It also comes with headlights and an optional MP3 player.
But that’s not all. Users can detach the pedestal trailer and use it with any other wheeled tranportation, like roller skates or skateboards.
I agree with others that it does remind one of a robot drawn rickshaw used in the latest Star War Trilogy – when Anakin takes Padme through the streets of Mos Eisley looking for his mother. But who cares, when you look at the the price? It is nearly one fourth that of the Segway, coming in at around $1300. This puts it much easier in the pocketbooks of average folk and not just the early adopter crowd who don’t mind paying a premium for the latest and greatest.
