Not everyone can get used to segways that have you using your knees to steer the device—especially if your knees are bad. At the same time, those said self balancing scooters usually aren’t adjustable. Why not become the ultimate segway rider with a handlebar? Nothing beats hand controls, and when fitted to the best segways, you’ll become the ultimate rider.
An amazing accessory to have for your Segway model, taking that awkward knee-controlled device and fitting it with hand controls—something knees just can’t beat. It comes with a rearview mirror, kickstand, and is adjustable.
Once fitted to a Segway Mini Pro, you’ll never go back to controlling segways with your knees. The level of control you have over the segway is just too good. Knees just aren’t built for the kind of nuisance movement hands can perform. And since the segway is self balancing, it compensated for the added weight. More importantly, using it meant our knees weren’t feeling all kinds of unwanted pressure. If your kids own a compatible segway (like a Segway MiniLite), you should consider fitting it to theirs for better safety. For a much easier segway to contgrol, read our Segway Minipro Handlebar review.
For $60, you’re getting a very durable handle bar, one with a frosted metal texture non-skid sponge. It doesn’t include a cushion, but does have padding on the handlebars themselves. A rearview mirror is placed on the right-hand side, giving a better view behind you. You can adjust the height, a non-factor in the original Segway models. The handlebar comes 90% assembled, only requiring that you insert the bar and tighten it with the 2 screws and tool packaged inside. You can have it done in two minutes flat. If you need an extension for your current segway controls, ToLanbbt Handlebar Extension review.
The value of the Aubestker Handlebar Kickstand Kit does fluctuate depending on the model of Segway you have. It’s either a godsend or useless. This is because the handlebar only works for a few select Segway models—specifically, the MiniPro and MiniLITE Ninebot S models. The Segway Ninebot S-Plus is not compatible, unfortunately.
On the bright side, both the Segway MiniPro, MinitLITE, and Segway Ninebot S are some of Segway’s cheapest options. And it just so happens the Ninebot S is the best segway on our list. The issue is said models use a knee bar for control, and this will solve that little problem.
Constantly using your knees can cause some unwanted knee pressure. The safer alternative Aubestker Handlebar Kickstand Kit provides relief from that pressure. That was invaluable to us. It’s a shame it doesn’t support more Segways, but those who do have the correct models get better control, adjustable height, and rearview mirror for an extra dose of safety.
