Scooters for Children
First decide if your child can use this scooter safely with their progress of balance and motor skills. I know we all don’t want our kids to grow up but helping them develop their skills is extremely important. If your child can walk easily and steadily, then they are ready to take the next step and start with a scooter. Toddler scooters are designed for kids that are just starting out, so even at two or three they can join their older siblings on outings.
Our scooters come in a 2 or 3 wheel design. Our 3 wheeled scooters are made with two in the back and one in the front. This is ideal for someone who needs to work on their and coordination, so perfect for those starting out to learn to ride a scooter. Our two wheel scooters are suited better for those who have better balancing skills. Ideally you want your child to start with a 3 wheeled scooter and work their way up to a 2 wheeled.
Now that you have decided your childs balance ability the next question is coordination. This is will effect their steering. Lean-to-steer models the handlebars don't turn, and kids must learn how to shift their centre mass to make turns.
Another factor to look at while buying scooters is wheel size. If you are looking for a safer model for your child a large wheel model is your best bet. Not only is easier to balance on these scooters your kids wont outgrow it as quickly, saving you money! Having bigger wheels is also ideal if you are planning on going on different and a little rougher surfaces. They are a little heavier making them harder to push and keeping the the top speed a little slower. While the smaller wheel scooters are light it makes them more portable and easier to handle. However take into consideration that they can go faster and control a lot easier making it possibly dangerous.
Scooters for adults
If you are an adult looking to stay active and not hurt your body too much a scooter is the perfect fit for you. Our adult scooters are typically made more for comfort and not speed. Built with larger wheels they have more range to go on a variety of surfaces. They absorb more the shock making a more comfortable ride and helping you protect yourself. However if you are looking for something more convenient the smaller wheeled scooters are easier for you if you are looking to get somewhere fast or bring it along on your commute.
