Amazon is offering the Segway miniPRO Smart Self Balancing Transporter for $399.99 shipped. That’s $100 off the typical rate at Amazon, and outside of Black Friday offers it’s the best price we’ve seen in well over 6 months. With a frame that is constructed of aircraft-grade magnesium alloy, this Segway is one of the best options out there. It boasts 10 mph speeds and a 12.5-mile range on a single charge. Rated 4.1/5 stars.

Opt for a GOTRAX Hoverfly ION Hoverboard for $150 to spend about a third of what you would on the miniPRO. Sure, you’ll forfeit 3 mph of speed, but speaking from experience 7 mph is fast enough to still have a great time.

Segway miniPRO features:

  • Durable aircraft-grade magnesium alloy frame
  • For your safety, the miniPRO will limit the max speed to 4.3 mph (7 km/h) until you complete the New Rider Tutorial
  • 10 mph top speed and 12.5 mile range. The battery should never be removed from the unit and should never be stored or exposed to temperatures below 15°F or above 120°F
  • 220 lbs payload, light-weight appropriate age 16+
