If you are considering the purchase of a Swegway for yourself or someone else this Christmas then this is a must read for you.
No doubt you have a bunch of questions and are researching all the Swegway facts. To save you time, effort and energy read all you need to know about the wonder that is the Swegway.
How do I look after my new board?
It is important that you do care for and look after your Swegway. Saying that, the boards are robust and are designed for frequent use. Let’s put it this way, they are not going to fall apart as you ride it.
The main ways you can care for your new Swegway are:
- Use a carry case to move it around (we provide this FREE with every new board)
- Don’t smash into things as much as possible
- Try not to go full speed all the time
In general, it is all about common sense. The more you look after your board and don’t ‘thrash’ it to death the more use and enjoyment you will get from it.
How long does the battery last?
All our boards are supplied with a rapid charge battery and will take 3 hours to charge. Once the battery is fully charged it will give you approximately 6 hours of ride time.
How fast can I go?
In general, Swegways will move at a speed of around 9-10 miles per hour. You can push it a little bit more than this dependent on the weight on the board and the surface you are riding on.
Can you ride them on UK roads?
As per the UK Highways Act 1835 you are not permitted to ride a Swegway on public road or pathways.
Where are you based?
We are located in the UK and have two distribution centres that we ship from. Our registered office is in Manchester meaning you will not need to order your board from China!
Where is the board made?
All Swegways are manufactured in China. However, we go the extra mile and ensure that every board we sell is tested and inspected before it is shipped. Every board that we sell is made to the highest standard using only quality components.
Do I get warranty?

Are they waterproof?

Riding it in rainy weather is acceptable but throwing it in a swimming pool is not!
