I decided to purchase a Segway miniPRO. On the surface it looks a lot like a hoverboard, but let me tell you it certainly isn’t. I commute between New Jersey and New York daily, I ride in the grass and in the streets (sometimes) and With the 10.5 inch (26.67 cm) tires this thing does a fairly good job going over uneven roads. I upgraded mine with a handle bar and a kickstand for convenience and in my opinion safety.
True to the statement below it truly is a lot safer to ride!
“The miniPRO is not a hoverboard — it’s the next step in the evolution of personal transportation. Powered by Ninebot technology, the miniPRO is a hands-free, two-wheel electric scooter with safer features, higher speeds, and longer battery life. The miniPRO is built to easily traverse a variety of indoor and outdoor terrains.”
