Segway Ninebot E22 Review

At 499.99, the Ninebot E22 is among Segway’s cheapest scooters – particularly if you’re looking for a sturdy, sustainable solution for those last few miles of your morning commute or weekend adventures. With a top speed of just 12 mph, you won’t be winning the Grand Prix – and it’s no match for more experienced riders. But, as a budget-friendly option for you, a great gift for your teenager, or an easy in-road to the higher end of Segway’s finest electric scooters, the Ninebot E22 will suffice. Whilst the E22 more than earns the stamp of approval for quality that we’ve come to expect from Segway-Ninebot, there are other scooters that offer superior performance for an identical price (i.e. the Turboant X7 Pro).

Offers displayed are from retailers that we trust. If only one offer is available this is because they are the only retailer we recommend.

Who is it Best For?

Will the Segway Ninebot E22 Be a Good Fit For You?

The Segway Ninebot E22 boasts a whole bunch of features worth talking about. Unfortunately, though, its top speed isn’t one of them.

For this reason, I recommend the Ninebot E22 for younger teens. Teenagers will enjoy zooming around on the E22’s slick, stripped-back frame, while parents will benefit from the peace of mind that the scooter’s regenerative braking, E-Mark reflectors, and puncture-proof tires afford.

Of course, there’s no reason adults can’t get in on the act, too. The E22’s ability to support riders up to 220 lbs also makes it ideal for first-time riders – regardless of age or ability – who will find lots to like about its kick-to-start motor and array of riding

Pros and Cons

  • Lackluster performance compared to scooters in the same price bracket
  • No suspension
  • Slow top speed
  • Heavier than similar scooters

Value for Money

Is it Worth the Price Tag?

Is the Segway Ninebot E22 good value for money? Yes… and no.

What I mean is that it depends on what you’re looking for in a scooter. If speed is high up your wish list, this isn’t the scooter for you. Likewise, there are other scooters out there that offer similar – if not superior – specs, but for the same price (i.e. the Turboant X7 Pro).

Still, at 499.99, the E22 is highly affordable – particularly considering that you’re also paying for the prestige of the brand. The E22’s intelligent cruise mode, innovative battery system, and reliable design are all hallmarks of the Segway brand – so if quality is a priority for you, this scooter offers value for money.

Design

Handlebars

Adding to all that comfort is the Segway Ninebot E22’s handlebars – grippy, ergonomic, and with a built-in multifunctional LED display dashboard in the center.

Here’s where you’ll view your riding stats, select your ride mode (more on that later, too), and keep an eye on your speed, mileage, and battery life.

Safety-wise, the handlebars do their bit, too. They’re where you’ll find the E22’s electronic brake, throttle, and bell. Just below the handlebars is the scooter’s front-facing 2.5W LED light – ideal for maximizing your visibility and providing peace of mind during those moonlit meanders.

Whilst both throttle and brake paddles are buttery-smooth to operate and don’t get stuck like they can on some cheaper models, I would have preferred to see a hand-operated brake as opposed to a thumb paddle. For new riders, the electronic brake takes some getting used whilst a traditional hand brake will be second nature to those that are used to riding bikes.

Frame

Weighing in at just 29.8 lbs, the Ninebot E22 is slightly heavier than Segway’s other popular models for adults, such as the ES2, the Air T15, and the now-discontinued ES1.

But if anything, that’s less a patch on the E22’s rideability, and more a testament to Segway just being really good at making featherweight scooters. Because, at the end of the day, the E22 is still very light.

Better still, the frame’s ‘one-push’ folding system makes getting it into the trunk a quick and easy job – and, when it comes to long, cramped car rides, the E22 is compact enough to call even the most unforgiving nooks and crannies home.

Plus, when you do hit the road you’re sure to catch the eyes of onlookers as they admire the chic charcoal grey paintwork.

Deck

There’s a lovely piece of trivia about the Segway Ninebot E22, and it’s great news for the deck.

What sets this scooter apart from a lot of fellow entry-level scooters is that, rather than the battery pack being located in the deck, it’s in the handlebar stem instead.

This means the E22’s deck is a little higher off the ground than with most similar models. The result? A smoother riding experience for you, and fewer bumps and scratches for your new toy.

Aside from that, the E22’s deck ticks all the boxes you’d expect it to. It’s grippy enough to feel safe on and wide enough for riders of all abilities – and all shoe sizes – to enjoy a comfortable cruise.

Wheels

The scooter comes ready to ride with its very own (wait for it) patented anti-skid, tubeless tires.

As I’ve already alluded to, the E22 is comfortable to ride over extremely well-maintained urban terrain – and this is in no small part down to its wheels.

segway, ninebot, review, kickscooter

To start with, they’re 9 inches in circumference – a big step up from the ES1’s 8-inch solid tires. However, the only catch is that the E22 sports the much-maligned ‘solid’ tires. It’s not all bad, though. The E22’s tires aren’t solid in a conventional sense but rather filled with a generous portion of PU (polyurethane) foam, which prevents tire leakage and makes maintenance a cinch.

Although the PU foam tires are also puncture-proof, scooters with pneumatic tires will always take the crown. For example, the Turboant X7 Pro, which is identical in price to the Ninebot E22, has 10-inch pneumatic tires that do a stellar job of cushioning against the terrain underfoot. Plus, it’s much faster (20 mph) and has a larger battery (30 miles) than the E22.

Build Quality Durability

You don’t get to be one of the biggest names in the electric scooter industry (heck, in the world) by making low-quality scooters. So it comes to nobody’s surprise that the E22 is a sturdy, resilient addition that more than earns its place in the Segway lineup.

Made from anodized, aviation-grade aluminum, the E22 will give you wings. I’ve already waxed lyrical about its lightweight, foldable frame, but did I mention that it’s splash-proof, too? Yep – with an IPX4 water-resistant rating, you don’t have to let the rain spoil your next ride.

Weight Load

The Segway Ninebot E22 weighs 29.8 lbs, while its maximum load of 220 lbs is one we’ve come to expect for Segway’s Ninebot scooters for adults.

Of all the 80 scooters that I have reviewed, where weight can stretch from 23 to 145 lbs, the E22 sits in the top 25%, making it one of the lightest scooters.

Folding Portability

Another thing that the Ninebot E22’s lightweight frame and slim, economical design has going for it is that it’s super portable.

The E22’s no-frills, fully-folding functionality is a breath of fresh air for commuters and weekend riders alike. It’s simple to stow away in a train luggage compartment, easy to carry around, and able to fit in the trunk of your car. At less than 30 lbs, carrying it upstairs is easy.

Assembly

Once the excitement of unboxing this beauty is over, it’s time to get it assembled. But don’t fret – the process of putting the Segway Ninebot E22 together is no more strenuous than with any other electric scooter. All you’ll need is a bit of concentration … and a 3mm wrench (which is provided), of course.

Once you’ve got your hands on the tools, unpack the parts. Erect and lock the steering column, connect the handlebar to the frame by plugging both electric cables together, and then push the handlebars into the stem. Once you have the handlebars aligned, you simply fasten it into its place by tightening a few screws with your trusty wrench. Next up, secure the bell into place and you’re all done.

I’ve struggled more with IKEA furniture than I did with the E22. You’ll be fine.

Ride Quality

Is the Segway Ninebot E22 Comfortable to Ride?

Segway’s scooters are known for being as easy to ride as they are to look at – and the Ninebot E22 is no different.

The E22 is equipped with 9-inch dual-density rubber tires. These jumbo tires, which are filled with a special type of PU foam, help provide a basic level of shock absorption – balancing out the scooter’s lack of any traditional suspension, without the risk of flats or leakage.

Granted, it’s not perfect. But, you’ll still get some damping against harsher impacts, and – while my disdain for solid tires is well-documented – these have a larger circumference, offering a more balanced ride.

Wheels aside, the rest of the E22’s makeup is plenty comfortable, with ergonomic handlebars complementing its already lightweight frame and wide deck. But more on that later!

What I’m trying to say is that the Ninebot E22 is comfortable… though it’s well-maintained inner-city pathways that are where you’ll get the most pleasant ride, and I’d recommend skipping the rougher roads altogether.

Performance Safety

Speed Acceleration

If the Segway Ninebot E22 does have a ‘catch’ in the traditional sense, speed is it.

With a top speed of 12 mph, this scooter is suitable for younger riders, adult first-timers, weekend riders, and commuters looking for a dependable – yet relatively sedate – journey to work. It’s not for thrill-seekers, or those looking to zip around the city at pace.

With a range of 13.7 miles, it’s not exactly the best option for longer rides, either.

On the plus side, the E22’s three riding modes – cruise, standard, and sport – make it a hit with parents seeking a safer selection for their son or daughter. Cruise mode allows you to control your speed while conserving battery life, while ‘Sport’ provides as much of an adrenaline shot as you’re going to get with this scooter.

That said, if you feel like splashing the cash, you can buy a second battery. For 249.99, you’ll unlock a top speed of 15.5 mph – up there with Segway’s highly-lauded ES2 model – and a range of up to 27 miles.

Or, if you don’t fancy spending above and beyond what you have to, I highly recommend the Turboant X7 Pro. It is the best scooter under 600 and there’s a good reason for it – it has a top speed of 20 mph, a 30-mile range, weighs 33 lbs, and has big plush tires that effortlessly glide over urban terrain.

Range

The E22’s maximum mileage clocks in at between 13.7 miles (unmodified) and 27 miles, when you purchase that second battery – though how much distance you’ll get out of the scooter will depend on how hard you push it, so don’t go too hard on that accelerator. For example, if you weigh 176 lbs (80 kg) and ride aggressively, you can expect to only see about 8 miles.

So, is that second battery worth shelling out for? I don’t think it is.

Looking at the extra battery’s price tag (249.99), if range is your top consideration, you’re better off with the Turboant X7 Pro. With a mileage of up to 30 miles, it’s got endurance in spades – and, at 499.98, it won’t set you back any more than the E22.

Hill Climbing

For the price point, the Segway Ninebot E22 seems to punch well above its weight when it comes to hill climbing. After all, it claims it can tackle hills of up to 15%.

Whilst this isn’t completely fugazi, the E22 is very poor at climbing hills. Anything above 8% and you’ll feel like you’re crawling at a snail’s pace.

If you live in a hilly area, I would avoid this scooter – you’ll end up using it as a kick scooter.

Shock Absorption / Suspension

There’s no sugarcoating it – the E22’s lack of in-built suspension means it can be a bumpy ride. You feel each crack in the sidewalk and might as well forget about rougher terrain altogether.

The E22’s foam-filled tires are specially formulated to provide the most basic of buffers between you and the road.

Braking

It takes two to tango, and you’ll have plenty to dance about with the Ninebot E22’s dual braking system. The scooter complements an E-ABS electronic brake with a second, mechanical foot brake at the rear – ensuring an extra layer of safety for the rider, and sighs of relief from protective parents everywhere.

By doubling up on the brakes, and combining that with a regenerative braking system, the E22 can manage a braking distance of as short as four meters. The rear brake will provide a smoother stop, while you can expect its electronic counterpart to be a little more… abrupt.

Given the scooter’s relatively sedate top speed, the brakes do the job.

Still, I reviewed a lot of scooters, and the E22’s brakes aren’t the most responsive or user-friendly I’ve tested. One word of warning, too – there’s no brake control without the power. Safety should always be a top priority, so – though it might sound a little silly – always make sure that the power is switched on before you take on any steep downhill slopes.

Charge Time

Like the old Segway Ninebot ES1, the E22 has a charge time of 3.5 hours.

That’s about standard for a scooter of this capacity, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that the E22 actually did reach a full charge in the time promised (sadly, many scooters tend to overpromise and under-deliver in this area).

The E22’s industrious charge time is aided by its Smart Battery Management System (SBMS). A typically savvy inclusion from Segway, this innovation – which prevents the battery from overheating, and safeguards it from short-circuiting and over-charging – is often reserved for more expensive scooters.

Extra Features

LED Panel

Showcasing your scooter’s battery life and speed at all times, the E22’s illuminated LED dashboard – conveniently located in the center of the handlebars, as you’d expect – is a welcome addition.

The classy, circular black glass panel looks more like an expensive digital watch than something you’d find on a cut-price scooter and adds that extra touch of sheen the Segway brand is so famous for.

Of course, the emphasis on style comes at the cost of a certain level of substance, and the dashboard doesn’t improve on Segway’s previous models. Nor does it provide you with a whole lot of information – although you could argue this isn’t necessary, considering you’ll get everything you need through Segway’s mobile app (more on that below).

You’ll also find a button located just below the screen. This allows you to control the LED lights, toggle riding modes, and turn the power on or off. Handy.

LED Lights

At 2.5W, the Ninebot E22’s front LED light isn’t (quite literally) the brightest bulb in the box. But, as with most of the E22’s faults, this lack of wattage comes down to the scooter being mainly targeted at beginners and younger riders. If you plan on taking this bad boy for a spin during the darker hours, I’d recommend investing in a brighter set of lights.

The headlight’s range comes to just over 44 feet, and – mercifully, for those coming the opposite way – is angled down.

Cruise Control

Fancy a relaxed ride to unwind after a long day? Whether you want to chill out, do some sightseeing, or just save a bit of battery, the E22’s cruise mode offers big benefits.

With a speed of 9.3 mph, selecting cruise mode ensures you’ll get the maximum range from the E22 – or, in terrain terms, if you’re lucky, the equivalent of just under a couple of laps of Central Park.

Mobile App

Connecting to your scooter via Bluetooth, Segway’s slick, intuitive mobile app (or, as I like to call it, the icing on the cake) is available for both Android and iOS.

The app is how you’ll activate your E22’s cruise control, and sync riding info with your smartphone. Crucially, it’s also how you’ll lock it – ensuring the E22’s alarm will go off if any movement is detected after it’s activated.

Annoyingly, the blessing of E22’s relatively lightweight frame is also a curse when it comes to security. Athletic thieves will be able to just tuck it under their arm and take off. You’re already spending almost 500 on the scooter, so getting yourself a backup lock can’t hurt.

Water Resistance Rating

The Segway Ninebot E22 has a water-resistant rating of IPX4. According to the official standards, this means the scooter is protected not just against water splashes from all directions, but from low-pressure jets of directed water from any angle.

Taking into account the rigorous testing processes materials need to go through to win these ratings this scooter means business. Especially on a rainy day. Although, I wouldn’t recommend riding in the rain.

Battery Management System

The Segway Ninebot’s E22 Smart Battery Management System is more than just… well, a battery management system. It’s Smart – a culmination of seven years of innovation and improvement in Segway’s labs.

So what does it bring to the table, exactly?

Well, a more accurate power display and speed reporting, for one. An extended battery life, too. Plus, I’d wager that any rider that’s ever had to wait over ten hours for their scooter to charge will definitely want to hear more about Segway’s SMBS – particularly the lightning-quick three and a half-hour charge time.

And there’s more where that came from…

Optional Extended Battery Pack

I’m talking about the battery pack, of course.

If you’ve been lured in by the siren song of the E22’s low price – but, like me, have an urge for something just a little faster – this battery pack will be right up your street.

It’ll increase the scooter’s range to around 27 miles, and your speed to a cool 15.5 mph – so it’s not to be sniffed at.

The catch is, it’ll cost you. You’ll have to shell out an extra 249.99 to get your hands on this neat addition – exactly half the price of what you paid for the scooter itself.

I find it tough to see too large of a subsection of the E22’s target market wanting to spring for such an expensive extra – particularly when it’s the scooter’s cheaper price point that’s the biggest draw.

Segway Ninebot launched a feature-rich F-series in 2021. There are three different kickscooters in the F-series: F25, F30, and F40.

Segway Ninebot F40 Overview

Speed and Acceleration

Ninebot F40 comes with a 350W front hub motor. The motor is a bit more powerful than other similar electric scooters. For example, Niu KQi2 and Xiaomi 3 have 300W motors. Also, other Ninebot scooters from the F-series have 300W motors.

Thanks to the slightly bigger motor, Ninebot F40 has a somewhat higher top speed and better hill-climbing capability.

The scooter is able to reach a top speed of 18.6 mph. To be honest, it’s a sufficient speed for city rides. Also, the F40 can easily climb inclines of up to 15%.

When riding uphill, the top speed decreases, but not much. Of course, it also depends on the weight of the rider.

The acceleration of the scooter is very smooth and gradual. There is no zero-start feature, so you have to make a couple of kicks before the scooter starts accelerating.

In Eco mode. the scooter goes only up to 9.3 mph. Therefore, you can maximize the range.

In Standard mode. you can reach the max speed, but the acceleration is not the best. It’s the mode you will probably use the most.

In Sport mode. the acceleration will be a bit more aggressive. It’s useful when going uphill. But if you ride in this mode all the time, the battery will die quite fast.

Battery and Range

Ninebot F40 has a battery that can contain up to 367 Watt Hours of energy. Compared to other F-series scooters, F40 has the best battery.

The F30 has a battery of 275 Wh, while the F25 has a battery of just 183 Wh of energy capacity. It means that Ninebot F40 has a much longer range than its smaller brothers.

Talking of which, the maximum range of Segway Ninebot F40 is about 25 miles. You can achieve that when riding in Eco mode on flat surfaces and if you don’t weigh much.

A more realistic range would be about 15 miles. which is still quite good. If the battery gets completely empty, it takes about 6-7 hours to recharge.

Brakes

The scooter has 2 types of brakes: a mechanical disc brake and an electronic brake. The disc brake is at the rear and the electric brake is at the front. You can activate both brakes simultaneously from the single brake lever on the handlebar.

At first, I was disappointed about the stopping power. I weigh about 190 pounds and it took about 25 feet to stop from the speed of 15 mph.

After adjusting the brakes, I managed to shorten the stopping distance to 15 feet. Now, I can say that Ninebot F40 electric scooter provides enough stopping power for safe riding.

You can see from the video below, how I tested and adjusted the brakes:

Frame and Deck

The frame of the Segway F40 is made from durable steel. It seems very strong and it can withstand a payload of up to 265 pounds.

When riding with the scooter, you don’t hear any rattling from the folding joints.

The scooter weighs just 35 pounds, making it one of the most lightweight electric scooters on the market.

The deck provides plenty of room. You can easily fit your feet however you like. Also, the deck has nice rubber on it, which provides a good grip underneath your feet.

Additionally, there are integrated fenders on top of both wheels, so your clothes remain clean even if the road is dirty.

Portability

Although the handlebar is not collapsible, I would still classify Ninebot F40 as a very portable electric scooter.

As mentioned above, the scooter is quite lightweight. So everyone can carry it for a couple of flights of stairs.

Additionally, the scooter has a simple folding mechanism. When folded down, the F40 fits easily in most trunks.

It literally takes just 3 seconds to fold the scooter. There is a very Smart way to lock the handlebar when it’s folded down.

There is a hook on top of the rear fender, which attaches perfectly to the bell on the handlebar.

Also, the folding mechanism is strong and reliable, so you don’t have to worry that the scooter folds itself down while you are riding.

F40 Wheels and Tires

The Ninebot F40 e-scooter comes with 10-inch wheels and pneumatic tires. Tires have an anti-skid feature that provides good ride quality on smooth terrain.

However, since the scooter doesn’t have suspensions, it’s not good on the bumpy road. Although these tires provide much better ride quality than solid tires, don’t even think of going off-roading with this scooter.

Handlebar

The handlebar of this Ninebot scooter is comfortable. Nothing fancy there and not many buttons. Just a braking lever, a bell, a display, and a thumb throttle.

I really like the grips. They don’t move around and they provide a good grip.

Lights

The scooter has all the necessary essentials including the lights.

It has a bright LED light at the front and red light at the rear. You must manually turn them on from the display. However, the brake light works all the time even if the main lights are turned off.

These lights provide enough illumination for riding in the dark. Also, you are well-seen by others.

Is Ninebot F40 Waterproof?

Segway Ninebot F40 is not waterproof and it is not advised to ride with it in the rain.

However, the e-scooter has an official IPX5 water-resistance rating. It means that the scooter can handle some low-pressure water jets. So, if you get caught in the rain while riding, you are not instantly in trouble.

Just make sure to get in a dry place as soon as possible.

Does Ninebot F40 Have an App?

Ninebot F40 has Bluetooth connectivity and an app for Android and iOS.

In the app, you can see the remaining battery percentage and mileage. Also, you can set the energy recovery strength.

If the scooter needs an update, this can be done through the app. Additionally, you can turn the scooter into walk mode.

Ride Quality

Overall, I really like the ride quality of the Ninebot F40.

The riding is really smooth. You can hear only the sound of wind in your ears (and a quiet buzz of an electric motor).

I feel very comfortable on the deck and the handlebar height is exactly right for a man of 6’3″.

However, if the terrain is bumpy, the ride quality decreases significantly. So you need smooth asphalt for this electric scooter.

This gadget works great on flat surfaces and upwards to 15% on sloped elevation. When you are traveling on a slope, expect lower speed as the scooter works to commute on the slope. Other than that, this scooter is equipped with dual batteries for extended travel distance and performance.

Plus, the Kick Scooter ES4 comes with improved motors that pack a serious amount of power for higher maximum speed. Performance-wise, this electric scooter is impressive and boasts a number of stellar speed, working capacity, and ease of use.

Segway pretty much launched the electric scooter market with its personal transporter, and while that device didn’t exactly take off, the company has had more success with less-futuristic devices. The Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max doesn’t look like something out of a sci-fi movie, but what it lacks in style, it makes up for in performance. It’s one of the best electric scooters for those who want a long and comfortable ride. Check out the rest of our Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max review to see what else we liked about this massive electric scooter.

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max: Design

Outside of models with full suspension, the Ninebot Kickscooter Max is one of the beefiest electric scooters around. It has nice, large 10-inch inflatable tires, a thick downtube, and a large, rubber-clad deck with a massive battery underneath. It’s a stark contrast to the svelte Unagi Model One; side by side, it’s like looking at a Miata next to a Hummer.

The one downside is that the Kickscooter Max weighs a hefty 41.2 pounds, nearly 15 pounds more than the Unagi Model One. That makes the Max a lot less portable, especially if you’re looking to carry it on a bus, subway, or up a flight of stairs.

One of the things I liked the most about the Kickscooter Max was its bell. Most electric scooters I’ve tested treat this safety feature as an afterthought, strapping on a dinky little ringer. The Kickscooter Max’s bell, though, is big and loud. And, instead of having to shift your thumb to ring it, the Kickscooter’s bell is built into the left handlebar, so all you have to do is twist your wrist.

The Kickscooter Max has a bright color LED display; while not as large as that on the Unagi, it still conveyed all the information I needed at a glance.

I also liked the bright headlight and taillight on the Max; as with the Unagi, the Max’s taillight flashes when you hit the brakes, making you more visible to cars.

It has an IPX-5 rating for water resistance, so you could ride it through a rainstorm. You’d be miserable, but the scooter would survive.

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max: Setup and app

The Max ships with its handlebars detached, but connecting them is a simple matter of using the included Allen wrench to screw in six bolts. If you’ve ever assembled IKEA furniture, this should be no problem.

However, there is one extra step before you can take the Kickscooter Max out for a ride: You have to download the Segway-Ninebot app to your smartphone (Android and iOS), link the scooter to the app via Bluetooth, and then register the scooter with your email address. You can then use the app as a dashboard (if you want a smartphone mount, that’s 30 extra) and see additional stats, such as distance traveled and battery life remaining. Since the scooter itself has a readout, I almost never used the app.

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max: Performance

Cruising around my neighborhood, I was pleased with the smooth ride offered by the Kickscooter Max’s 10-inch tires. Despite the lack of shock absorbers, it took on potholes and sidewalk cracks like a champ.

Where the Unagi I rode has dual 250-watt motors, the Max has a single 350-watt motor in its rear wheel; nevertheless, the Max was able to power me up steep inclines nearly as easily as the Unagi. Segway claims the Max can handle 20-degree inclines, and I believe it. On one incline that caused other, less powerful scooters to slow down to 5-6 miles per hour or less, the Kickscooter Max was able to maintain a speed of around 9-10 mph. The Unagi, which has dual 250-watt motors, did a bit better, averaging around 14 mph.

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max: Verdict

While not as elegant in design as the Unagi Model One, the Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max is still one of the best electric scooters because it delivers a lot of performance at a reasonable price. For 800 — nearly 200 less than the Unagi — the Kickscooter Max gets you around just as fast and just as smoothly, over longer distances.
