Cool Rider: Like a Segway, but Not Really

by Paul Strauss

Lately, we’ve been running into lots of unusual personal transportation vehicles. The Cool Rider is just the latest attempt to dethrone the venerable Segway from the top of the single-person transporter heap.


The Cool Rider isn’t quite as schmancy as a Segway, but it still looks like a fun way to get around. The vehicle features a powerful single-wheel drive system that can pull you along the streets at a zippy clip.


The battery-powered motor can hit a top speed of 12 mph, and can run for about an hour per charge. The battery pack is removable too, and plugs into any wall outlet. The other unique thing about the Cool Rider is that you can detach the standing sled from the back and just use it to pull you on your skates or rollerblades.


While the $1250 (USD) retail price isn’t exactly pocket change, the Cool Rider does sell for about 1/4 the price of a Segway. Sold? Then head on over to Opulent Items and plunk down your credit card. While you mull it over, why not watch this Cool Rider video clip…



BTW, Did you notice that none of the people in the photos are wearing a helmet or knee pads? I don’t know about you, but the whole thing looks just a little bit dangerous to me.  I’d have to bet these things aren’t street-legal anywhere around here.

    Looks a little bit more dangerous than a segway, but still fun to ride i like how you can detach the platform and use it to pull yourself on a skateboard or roller blades.

    Why the hell are there Chinese subtitles?
    America really must stop flooding international markets with racially singular (white) Ken and Barbie medias.

    The Cool Rider may have a market. Its a bit over priced though for a wheel, a motor and a small battery. The one hour run time is also a issue.

    Make it under $1000 and give it at least 3 hours run time.
