Hiboy vs Segway Scooter Review

Today, we’re looking at two innovative scooter companies, Hiboy and Segway. Both are at the top of their game, delivering exceptional scooters that perform well and are safe to operate. Many people are familiar with Segway to some degree.

The company entered the scene back in 2001 and produced a funky, futuristic two-wheeler that balanced itself while transporting riders. Segway has since expanded its inventory to include a dozen scooters and more.

Hiboy has one less electric scooter to choose from, putting both brands about even in terms of selection. Of course, quantity and quality are two different things entirely. We need to dig deeper to determine which electric scooter manufacturer comes out on top.

Segway’s Top Seller

Ninebot KickScooter MAX

One of Segway’s best sellers is the Ninebot KickScooter MAX. This electric scooter certainly has a lot of good things going for it, including a fast top speed, long driving range, and quality components. It is built for travel in wet conditions, too, thanks to its IPX5 construction.

Riders who need a scooter that can support a little extra weight will appreciate the MAX’s 220-pound capacity. Climbing up steeper inclines isn’t an issue for the MAX because there’s additional power in the rear hub motor, supplying an extra 100 Watts.

The KickScooter MAX can reach a top speed of 18.6 miles per hour. What’s more, you can comfortably travel distances in excess of 40 miles on a single charge, providing you with plenty of drive-time. This makes the MAX ideal for inner-city travel and commuting.

One of the biggest complaints many riders have with scooters is their lack of standing room. You will be pleased to know that Segway addressed this concern by designing the MAX to have a larger foot deck area, ensuring more comfort and support.

All is not perfect, however, as the MAX lacks the snappy pep found in other electric scooters. If you like to jump on and get moving at a decent rate of speed, you may find yourself a bit disappointed.

The weight is also a little on the heavy side, clocking in at a hefty 42 pounds. This is somewhat understandable considering the durable construction of the MAX. But if you require a lightweight scooter that you can easily manage and maneuver, you might want to look elsewhere.

Fortunately, Segway makes up for the MAX’s shortcomings by including a 6-hour fast recharging time, a built-in LED headlight, and a digital dash. You can easily switch between driving modes (Eco, Standard, Sport) with the double-tap of a button. There’s even Bluetooth connectivity built right into the Ninebot MAX.

We like that you can fold the MAX to reduce its carrying size. But the heavier weight may have you thinking twice about hauling it up a flight (or flights!) of stairs. If you work or live in a building that requires you to climb stairs every day, you’re likely to tire quickly if you need to take the MAX with you.

Hiboy’s Top Seller

Hiboy S2


If you’re looking for an electric scooter that delivers the goods and won’t break the bank, you’re going to want to give Hiboy’s S2 some serious consideration. As one of the company’s best-selling models, the S2 offers many of the same features and options as Segway’s MAX but at a fraction of the price.

The S2 is one zippy scooter, accelerating quickly to a top speed of 18.6 miles per hour in Sports mode (13 MPH in Comfort mode). With a maximum range of 17 to 20 miles on a single charge, you don’t get quite the distance as you do with Segway’s MAX.

Still, for inner-city travel, 17 miles should get you from point A to point B and back without issue. Just plan on recharging more often. Six hours is all you need to give the S2 to fully top off, making it easy to plug in overnight or while you’re at work to get a full charge.

A powerful LED headlight is present on the S2, as are bright taillights. You will also find an attractive digital dash featuring a crisp display that keeps you apprised of battery life, speed, and more. Bluetooth capability is here, as well.


If you’re concerned about weight capacity, the S2 has you covered. It can safely support up to 260 pounds, trumping the Ninebot MAX by a good 40 pounds. When you’re ready to take your electric scooter indoors, simply fold it up for compact carrying.


For such a beefy scooter, it’s truly impressive that Hiboy was able to get the unit’s weight down to a mere 29.5 pounds. This makes hauling it around a breeze, especially if you’re regularly climbing flights of stairs.

Furthermore, for a nominal fee, you can opt for an add-on seat. This provides additional comfort during your daily commutes.

Winner

It’s hard to overlook the massive price difference between Segway and Hiboy. In general, this trend continues across many of their electric scooter models. Sure, Segway’s MAX will take you farther distances per battery charge, but all other features are virtually identical.

Unless you are planning to ride more than 20 miles one way, there’s really no reason to spend hundreds of dollars more for a Segway. Hiboy is an industry leader for a reason, as they regularly produce high-quality scooters at a price you can afford.

When you factor in the more manageable weight and higher capacity, Hiboy gets the nod in this matchup.
