My daughter and niece are interested in self-balancing two-wheel scooters this year (and dad might have fun with one, too). Photo below. These are relatively new on the market and prices have been coming down. I look forward to seeing whether there are any Black Friday deals on these, but I am also not sure of differences in quality between the different models. At current pricing, I would probably want to spend in the low end of the price range (preferably $200 and certainly not more than $300), but I don't want something that falls apart or presents more hazard that is inherent to these devices. A couple of reviews I have heard indicate that they are all fairly similar in quality, which suggests going with the cheapest available. I am not interested in higher speed, since that is inherently more dangerous, 6 mph / 10 kph is more than enough.
Does anyone own one of these? Do you know anything about the different brands? Post here if you know a particularly good price for one and we will post if some turn up in the Black Friday ads.
