This guide helps you find the right scooter for exactly your needs by explaining some of the most important elements of buying a scooter. Scooter types are just as various as bikes or cars....
Scootering: A Sport for all Ages and Abilities
Scootering is a fun sport for all age groups and abilities. Riding a scooter is a great way to get cardio exercise and also helps to develop your leg muscles and core. Scooter riding will also improve your balance and coordination skills for other sports and activities. Even though kick scooters were invented in the 1920s, it was not until the 90s that modern aluminum scooters gained success.
Pro Scooters Are Built for Tricks
Pro scooters, also called trick scooters, are typically used in skateparks, urban areas and parking lots. These scooters are designed for tricks and aggressive riding and are better able to withstand pressure and wear. Because of this, modern pro scooters are aimed to be light but sturdy. It is also common to customize tricks scooters, either if you need to replace worn-out parts or just want to add a personalized look. Pro scooters can generally not be folded.
Big Wheel Scooters Offer Convenient Transportation
For transportation, we recommend scooters with big wheels with a diameter of 120 mm or more. These scooters, often known as commuter scooters, are usually designed for adults looking for a fun and healthy way to get around town. Kids’ scooters typically fall into this category and come with either two or three wheels. Big wheeled scooters can often be folded and are therefore easy to take along on public transport, to work or school. Big wheels have great directional stability and are able to withstand bumps and little cracks in the road.
