Assisting the mobility challenged is a special calling for Segway Off Road owner, Drew Foster. Injuries from serious accidents early in his life eventually left him depressed and out of shape, until he discovered Segways through a friend.
Once Foster rode a Segway he was hooked! Soon his love of adventure inspired him to begin riding his street model Segway on trails near his home in the Oakland hills. A wipe out inspired him to design the first off road Segway, and his love of Segways was cemented.
Since Drew began riding in 2003, he’s trimmed down, gotten fit, and renewed his love of life and outdoor adventure through Segways. Now he shares his passion with others who, like him, crave adventure, but may not find it physically possible to go places they want due to mobility issues.
Custom Segways can replace wheelchairs, scooters, and other devices. They fit through standard doorways, don’t mark up floors, and are eco friendly. Charging a Segway costs less than a dime, and one charge can last 19 miles. In certain cases, custom Segways can allow someone who normally has to sit to stand and move freely again.
Segways change lives. Segway Off Road is happy to be a partner in enabling all people to enjoy our natural landscape freely.
