Scooter Adventures – Can You Dig It?

Let the journey through the gateway to a good vibe continue.

Up until about a year ago I only had a peripheral understanding of scooting silliness when I gifted my son a Razor scooter for his 6th birthday. Once I saw the pure enjoyment he garnered from riding it, I wanted to give it a go, but his is built for kids and denoted a weight restriction, so rather than be a selfish Mama Bear buzzkill and potentially break his new scooter and thinking too, this could be a new stylin’ mode of transportation for the two of us adventurers –  I haphazardly went out on a whim and bought the first adult scooter I could find so we could go for a fun tour. Totally stylin purple Pivot scooter. Super durable.

Since then, I have used my scooter so much. I can scoot the city and it is such a convenient and fun ride that I have been doing some serious research on the different kinds available because in my direct experience these things can be ridden on different levels of intensity.

Some Types of Scooters Available:

There are a variety of brands and style that you can select from in the scooter world. Here are some I have knowledge of:

1. The Razor Scooter

This is what my little man tours around upon. It is a folding scooter, has adjustable handle bars, an airplane grade aluminum frame and a brake at the back presented in the form of a fender over the back wheel that, when pushed upon by the foot brings the scooter to an eventual stop. There are a variety of models available in this brand both traditional and electronic.

2. Mongoose Air Tire

This scoot scoot option is all kinds of cool and has a really groovy BMX vibe. Mongoose is a brand name originally for bicycles designed by BMX. Seeing them transition it to a scooter is pretty remarkably sweet! This scooter is the staple of sophistication, super solid spoke tires and can be used for tricks and fun jumps. Definitely a good choice and lots of opportunities for indulging in a good vibe.

3. Micro Mobility Systems – of Switzerland

This is a pretty popular kick scooter. I, myself have not had the pleasure of riding this one except for a small store score ride test drive but I see lots of little ones cruising around on this ride. This one sports three wheels, 2 upfront and one behind. The physics of this make this kids scooter ideal for little ones as they gain confidence and ability in their growing bodies. This brand also boasts a micro kick board which has a sweet big front tire which makes navigation and ride smoother, not to mention a lower deck offering more stability in terms of your balance and relationship with your centre of gravity.

 

 

3. Outon ProG

Great to use as a trick scooter and very reasonably priced. The handlebars are steady and outfitted with rubber end grips for smoothness and comfort in steering agility. It is a very versatile scooter so can be used in the skateboard park or for touring the city streets. Has pretty sweet bearings and rides at a good fast speed. A solid pick for sure.

It rides easily and is made with a quite a lightweight aluminum yet is sturdy for a solid ride. It offers exponential convenience with its folding mechanism and the lightweight allows for effortless portability.

7. Globber Adult One Kick Scooter

Globber is a fun name, no? To me it is, and is a name connected with quality in the land of scooters and a great option to engage in scooter silliness. This scooter has a two brake system too which will bring you to a halt on this cruiser with finesse and ease. Polyurethane is the material in which their wheels are made from with quite a vast diameter in terms of wheel choice which allows for smooth maneuverability over rugged terrains. This one folds easily too so very portable and very convenient.

This scooter has wheels that are diametrically superior coming in at a scale of 8 inches making it a super stable and solid glide ride. The floor board rides low which also lends itself to a steady and secure drive. This scoot scoot has a front suspension making bulges and swells in the terrain very easily managed and the rear brake has an anti-vibrational dampener allows for a velvety coast when you get moving. Oxelo technology patented an EasyFold system need not have you spend anytime folding if time does not permit as it is designed with a trolley mode that allows you to pull it around rather than carrying it. The titanium design is super stylin so will definitely ride in style!

    I have 2 boys who love theirs and we quite often go to the skate park with them. It’s good that most are versatile and able to fit in the back of the car.
