One S1 to be Showcased at CES 2017 from January 5-8 in Las Vegas
BEDFORD, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Segway
Inc. (Segway), the world’s leading provider of electric personal
transportation continues its expansion from a renowned manufacturer of
commercial-grade products to also becoming an innovator in the consumer
market, with the debut of its One S1 at brick and mortar retailers
throughout North America.
“We launched the One S1 for pre-sale, exclusively on Amazon, on November
1 for $749 — and the response was amazing! Now we’re bringing it to
specialty retailers whose customers are lifestyle and recreational
riders. The One S1 is not for everyone, riding takes skill. We’ve found
that riders with a certain skill set, combined with a fearless mindset,
can learn to ride in about an hour. It may take other riders longer to
become proficient,” said Brian Buccella, Vice President of Marketing and
Business Development, Segway. “It makes great sense to unveil the One S1
to retail buyers at CES and give them a unique opportunity to evaluate
its features, accessories and point of purchase displays first-hand, as
well as see a comprehensive product demonstration, check out the new
black model and have a little fun!”
