In late 2017, Bird launched with the Segway m365 scooter. Since then Segway (which is the same company as Xiaomi and Ninebot) has been a leading manufacturer for shared scooters.
Segway launched the Segway MAX a few months ago and it's already being used by Spin and Lyft. The MAX is the first Segway scooter designed for sharing, not consumers. While the ES series was popular with scooter companies, the MAX is a big improvement over the ES as it's much more durable.
