spnKiX are closer to rollerblades than any "upright, stand-on" vehicle and will NOT make anyone lazy. People will be outside and more active than before with more speed and style. This is a range extender!
spnKiX can be slowed down in 3 different ways: You can use electric brake. You can take your finger off of the hand held controller which will slow you down pretty quickly. You can also use the stopper located on the heel, which replaces the training wheel, to slow you down. This works similar to the brake on a pair of roller skates.
