LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Segway-Ninebot released last month the Ninebot KickScooter MAX, Powered by Segway, an e-scooter with the longest range on the market on Indiegogo crowdfunding website. Since then, Max has raised over USD 400,000 on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo in less than 24 hours, that is 4 times of the initial goal of USD 100,000. To this day, the campaign has raised an astounding USD 1.6 million averaging USD 100,000 a day raised.
Being at the center of the booming e-scooters market, Segway-Ninebot listened, gathered and incorporated user experience and customer feedback. Segway-Ninebot found the most asked for features: a longer range, bigger tires, weather resistance, and a good price point and developed the Ninebot KickScooter MAX, delivering these requested features and other improvements over the previous models. Segway-Ninebot designed the new KickScooter with reliability and durability in mind. The MAX comes with larger tires and improved water resistance. These improvements will provide users with a more dependable, comfortable riding experience, and lengthen the lifespan of the vehicle.
With the longest range on the market of up to 40 miles (65 km), the MAX can make the ride from the San Francisco Bay Area to Palo Alto in a single charge. The MAX also has four riding modes to adapt to any situation and a top speed of up to 18.6mph (30 km/h). The MAX is easily portable and always ready to go with its built-in charger and one-step folding system. The durability upgrades and improved weather resistance make the MAX the perfect choice for short distance travel or daily commute.
Segway-Ninebot will also be providing an Indiegogo special edition Ninebot KickScooter MAX for Indiegogo backers at a limited quantity during the campaign.
The Ninebot KickScooter MAX is available from just $599 on the early bird Indiegogo offer. Delivery is expected to dispatch August 2019.
