Segway's Latest Electric Bikes, Xyber and Xafari, are Loaded With Features
Have you been wanting to upgrade your traditional bike to something more advanced? Or are you an early adopter looking for the latest and greatest electric transportation? Segway has recently introduced its new lineup of e-bikes, and they are setting the bar high for what the future bike could look like. In other words, the future looks promising in the way of electric bikes.
The biggest selling point of Segway's new e-bikes is what they call Active Scene Perception. In the company's own words
While Segway doesn't give us much more detail on how this works, it's safe to assume that it's dependent on a suite of sensors in the bike's frame. This makes for a more comfortable and safe ride, as the bike's behavior is completely customized to the user's environment. This promising technology is coming to not one but two bikes.
Segway's latest electric bike offerings come in the form of its Xafari and Xyber models. Besides the aforementioned Active Scene Perception, Segway has purposefully designed these models to be integrated with mobile health apps so users can closely track real-time metrics like speed and mileage. This makes them perfect for anyone looking for an exercise to incorporate into their daily commute or for workout fanatics who prefer to get out into the open air. Additionally, the e-bikes have speakers, sensor-equipped headlights, music playback, and color-screen navigation displays.
First up, the Xafari:
The Xafari looks to be your typical multi-duty (on-road & off-road) bike with full suspension, capable 26" tires, a 750W motor, and a 913Wh battery.
Next up is the Xyber:
The Xyber was built with two riders in mind, much like a motorcycle in its design. This mobile tank can carry two batteries within the frame to get you up to 1140 Wh of power and a range of up to 95 miles. Like the Xafari, it is also equipped with full suspension for off-road capabilities with its extra-wide tires.
These bikes show an incredible amount of technological advancement. They're also an excellent solution for anyone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint, as e-bikes have a significantly lower environmental impact than traditional cars or motorcycles. In fact, Segway is making a big push to have environmentally friendly transportation take over in urban areas. They believe that e-bikes are the perfect candidate for this shift, and I'd be inclined to agree, given how much I write about them.
Aside from being eco-conscious and packed with features, Segway's e-bikes are just plain cool. If you're a technophile who can't resist the call of the latest and greatest, you'll definitely want to put one of these on your wishlist.
Conclusion: In the end, Segway's new e-bikes are a perfect melding of form and function. They're sleek, stylish, and packed with features that make them a future bike. Both the Xafari and Xyber are future bikes, as they won't be available for purchase until much later this year. I imagine more details on both models will be released in the months ahead, starting with speed, range, and, more importantly, cost. I can only imagine how much Active Scene Perception and 7-layers of security will set us back as consumers.
Just know that Segway has been in the business of creating high-quality, long-lasting transportation solutions for years. They've got the know-how, innovation, and forward-thinking mindset that guarantees they'll be a leading name in e-bikes for years to come.
