Ninebot Electric GoKart – Fun for everyone

Father and son fun with Ninebot Electric gokart

Conversion kits for hoverboards have been around for a while. They work great and can be a lot of fun, but Segway does it on another level with the Ninebot Electric Gokart conversion kit. 

While hoverboard carts are flimsy and controlled via levers on each side, the Ninebot looks professional in comparison and is controlled via steering wheel.

However, the Ninebot gokart conversion kit only works with Segway’s Mini Pro, which is similar to regular hoverboards but with different handling mechanics.

Ninebot Electric Gokart Pros

  • Lots of fun
  • It can drift
  • Good acceleration
  • Adjustable frame
  • Precise Steering
  • Different modes for safety
  • Well built compared to hoverboard conversion kits

Ninebot Electric Gokart Cons

  • The Gokart Conversion kit is more expensive than the Segway MiniPro
  • Battery range is less than desirable
  • Non-swappable battery

Should you buy it?

If you have a Segway MiniPro lying around in the basement, the conversion will give it new life.

The Ninebot Electric Gokart is not a serious electric gokart but it’s a lot of fun. It can’t go 0-60 in less than 1.5 seconds like the Daymak C5 Blast Go-Kart nor compete with lesser electric gokarts but it’s a lot cheaper and fits in the boot of your car.

Personally, I’d rather be seen in a Ninebot Electric Gokart than the Segway MiniPro.
