In this section we provide you with some useful Swegway Safety tips before thinking of purchasing one of our Hoverboards for sale. Please note the Self-Balancing Scooter (Swegway or Hoverboard) may not be fit for young adults under 16 years of age. The batteries are 36V and the limit for children’s electrical toys are 24V.
Personal safety equipment should be used at all times whist on board the Swegway. This includes but is not limited to:
- Protective headgear (helmet)
- Elbow and knee pads
- Shoes at all times
A bicycle helmet that has been properly fitted will suffice as protective headgear.
The Swegway will only commence working once you board. Please board the device carefully and whilst holding onto a stable surface or handle.
Swegways are for recreational use indoors and on flat surfaces outdoors.
Please do not ride the Swegway on public roads and footpaths.
Swegways are not to be used on uneven surfaces.
The Swegway speed can go up to 12km/h depending upon riders weight and the surface of the ground. Heavier riders will typically cause the Swegway to move more slowly.
Riders should weigh a minimum of 20kg and a maximum of 100kg. Riders with weights outside of these limits may cause the Swegway to break or become unsafe. A rider under 40kg may cause the Swegway to become unbalanced and the gyroscopes to work ineffectively.
