HOW DO I CHOOSE A KIDS SCOOTER?
We’re gonna separate our kids scooter range into 3 types.
For riders less than 5 years old, there’s kids scooters with 3 wheels. This multi-wheel scooter is great for riders still building coordination and balance.
It’s also an excellent option for getting comfortable with a typical kick-push action that all scooters require.
Some options in our range include the entry-level Balbi and the robust and durable Globber Primo range.
It’s also worth noting that Globber makes the Go UP range too. This thing has 3 different configurations in the 1 product.
Use as a walker, a ride on a 3 wheel bike or transform it into a kick-push scooter.
Next, for riders from 5 years old, consider getting an adjustable 2 wheel kids scooter.
The handlebars on these scooters will be adjustable. Kids grow like weeds at this age, so getting one that can accommodate for future growth makes sense.
Our range in this style of scooter consists of Globber’s Flow 125 series.
Both have adjustable handlebars too. The different heights are 82cm, 87cm, 92cm & 97cm (from the ground to the top of the handlebar).
Maximum rider weight is 100kg, so the Flow 125 can be used by adults as well but we don’t recommend them for heavy use.
Lastly, we’ve got a Pro or Street style kids scooter.
Out of all three types, these are the most robust.
That’s because the pro scooters are designed to be used at skateparks practising new tricks. But kids Pro scooters are equally suitable for young riders who use their equipment A LOT.
They are also made from more rigid materials such as steel or aluminium and less plastic, so they “feel” more solid under the rider too.
But, the downside here is they add a touch more weight.
