Read below what the ZING C8 has to offer.
Of course, all e-scooters are designed with safety in mind, but because the Zing C8 is specially made for children, even more attention has been paid to this aspect.
In addition, in addition to the mechanical handbrake on the left side of the handlebar, the Segway also has an internal braking system. This system’s sensor senses the attempt to brake, limiting the power supply for a safe and more efficient stop.
In addition to the mechanical handbrake, which you will find on the left side of the handlebar, an internal brake system has also been added. The sensor in this system detects attempts to brake and then limits the power supply for a safer and more efficient stop.
In addition, the e-scooter is equipped with 3 different driving modes, including the Safe, Cruise, and Turbo modes. In the Turbo mode, you can make optimal use of the full power and reach the top speed of 10 mph – 16 km/h. If you find this a little too hard for your child? Then you can choose Safe Mode. In that case, the scooter will not go faster than 3,7 mph – 6 km/h.
There is also the Cruise mode that works slightly differently than the other two driving modes. This is because you have to kick off the scooter after which the scooter maintains a constant speed, depending on how hard you have kicked off the scooter. It is also important to always wear a helmet.
The Zing C8 has three different driving modes (driving modes): safe, cruise and turbo. In the last position, the e-scooter can reach a top speed of 10 mph – 16 kilometers per hour. In safe mode, the Segway does not go faster than 6 mph – 8 kilometers per hour.
With the cruise mode, you must first approach the scooter, after which the e-scooter maintains a constant speed depending on the approach speed. A light on the display clearly indicates which mode the e-scooter is in. With its six-inch tires, the e-scooter always stands firmly on the road. The scooter has a water resistance of IPX4 and is therefore waterproof: it can withstand a shower on the road.
Sturdy And Strong
The frame of this Segway has a double tube, which makes the e-scooter strong and durable and can take a beating. And last but not least: the battery of this Segway is very compact and is located on the footboard. This lowers the center of gravity of the e-scooter and the child experiences even more stability and balance while riding.
What else does the Segway ZING C8 offer?
Double-tube frame: strong and durable
The frame is made of high-strength steel, with a triangular structure, which gives high durability and resistance to the product. The child will have good stability on the footboard and will ride with confidence.
In addition, the ZING C8 has an IPX4 rating, which means it is resistant to water splashes, but you can ride it in the rain. (This is something to remember because I went riding with my little girl and halfway it started raining. She wanted to ride home in the rain but we didn’t do that because I don’t think the scooter would have survived the heavy rain)
Powerful and compact battery design
The battery pack integrates the lithium-ion battery, the controller, and the smart BMS (Battery Management System) in one compact module that is placed on the deck to lower the center of gravity: this gives more stability to allow children to ride. With a single charge of about 2.5 hours, the ZING C8 will go up to 6,2 miles – 10 km, which is a lot of fun!

Abrasion Resistant, Comfortable to Drive Solid Rubber Tires
