Title: Best Scooter 2017

Best Scooters for Kids 2017 - Fun, Safe, Reliable
Scooters are a great way to get your kid outside
exercising, training balance and coordination,
and having fun. From about 3 years old upward,
scooters are a super portable and versatile mode
of transportation around the neighborhood. Like
a bike, scooters take a little bit of practice to
get used to. If you start with a 3-wheeled
scooter the practice time will be significantly
cut down, your child will be less likely to fall
and get road rash, and they'll be comfortable
using it after the 2nd or 3rd try. For those
reasons the 3-wheeled scooters are a great first
option for kids we got them for ours when they
were 3, and they used them until they were about
6 and then switched to the 2-wheeled scooter.
Note that the picture below shows our all-around
best Maxi Micro 3-wheeled scooter notice how it
has 3 wheels and the handlebars adjust for a wide
range of ages and heights? Excellent form factor
and versatility. We've gotten a lot of questions
about cute and fun helmets we suggest checking
out Raskulls, which has a number of cute options.
In addition to whether they have 2 or 3 wheels,
scooters vary in a few other important ways.
(No Transcript)
First, weight and height capacity are important,
as many little scooters have rather low weight
limits and handlebars that you will find a 4-5
year old growing out of quite quickly. Make sure
you purchase a unit with a weight capacity at
least 20 pounds heavier than your child, and
height-adjustable handlebars. Second, wheel size
(diameter) is important. The larger the wheels,
especially the front wheels, the more versatile
the scooter is across varied terrains (even
little pebbles and cracks on the road). If you
purchase one of the less expensive scooters with
tiny diameter wheels, there will be situations
when your child will bump up against a pebble or
crack in the sidewalk and the scooter will
suddenly stop (possibly sending your child flying
forward). Third, stability is impacted by
several factors, but we've found that the width
between the two front wheels (on 3-wheel
versions) is important, as is the standing
platform width. In general the wider the gap
between the two front wheels, and the wider the
standing platform, the better the stability.
Fourth, a braking system is great to have and
most are quite easy to use. Though most scooters
are equipped with the push-down rear wheel fender
brake, some do not include a brake at all. We
recommend having a brake, especially for those
downhill rides when you simply need to slow down
a bit while cruising. In our tests, we've found
that the wider and sturdier the rear step-brake,
the better it works. The thin aluminum ones don't
work very well especially when the wheel gets a
bit wet and reduces friction.
With these factors in mind, we pulled together
over a dozen of the most popular scooters on the
market today, nearly half of which were 3-wheeled
and the rest 2-wheeled (and one was electric!).
They varied in weight capacity from 35 to 200
pounds, some had adjustable handlebars and some
didn't, and some showed some build quality issues
that emerged after only a few weeks of use. We
strongly recommend 4 of the scooters we tested
The Mini Micro, Maxi Micro, and the Razor A3 and
Razor A5. We review each of these below, along
with a few additional recommendations.
  • Here are the Best Kids Scooters for 2017!
  • 1. Maxi Micro Scooters. These are the best
    3-wheeled scooters to get your child, and they
    make an awesome first scooter. We really loved
    everything about them. The Maxi Micro is marketed
    for kids aged 5-12 with a weight limit of about
    110 pounds. They are available in multiple fun
    colors, the boys who tested it liked the sleek
    silver Maxi version, and the girls tended to
    gravitate toward the purple Maxi. This is a safe,
    reliable, lightweight (about 5 pounds) scooter
    that is easy to learn, easy to maneuver, and tons
    of fun to ride! You might notice that there is a
    Mini and a Maxi version (the Mini is below at
    2). The Mini is a bit more basic than the Maxi.
    The Maxi adds an adjustable handlebar height,
    dual rear wheels, and higher weight capacity (112
    pounds). It is recommended for kids 5-12 years
    old, though our 4 year old started with the Maxi
    last year and it wasn't anywhere near too big.
    The front wheels are over 4.5" in diameter, with
    smaller rear wheels that are doubled up
    side-to-side for better braking, stability, and
    less chassis flexing around corners. The steering
    is easy to learn and control to steer, kids lean
    right or left rather than turning the handlebars
    (like you would with a 2-wheeled scooter). The
    wheels are low resistance, bearings are smooth
    and quiet, the handles are soft and grippy, and
    the brake works well unless the rear wheels are
    wet (for that reason, we don't suggest riding in
    wet conditions with any scooter). This Maxi Micro
    runs about 130 online. You can detach the
    handlebars for travel or storage but for more
    convenience there's a more expensive foldable
    version (but usually out of stock/hard to find).
    For something a bit less expensive but also less
    versatile, see our 2.

2. Mini Micro Scooters
  • This is the less expensive version of the Maxi
    Micro, intended for 3-5 year olds up to 44
    pounds. They do not have the adjustable handlebar
    height, instead being fixed at about 24" tall
    which is the same as the Maxi's lowest setting.
    They also have a single rear wheel which makes it
    a slower braker, and they have more flex in the
    chassis (which reduces stability). The brake is
    also not quite as heavy duty as it is with the
    Maxi. But it also tends to be about 50 less
    expensive than it, so there's some compromise if
    you're looking to save cash. The neighborhood
    kids who tested these scooters thought the Maxi
    was capable of going faster, turning harder, and
    was generally more stable than the Mini. In our
  • opinion, we recommend skipping the Mini and going
    directly to the Maxi unless your child is
    particularly small (like under 35" tall) or
    you're on a very limited budget. With the Maxi
    handlebars all the way lowered it is small enough
    (24" high) for the typical 3 or 4 year old,
    matching the Micro height, but having the ability
    to grow with your child. We did not find it more
    difficult to learn or manage than the Mini in
    fact we found the Maxi somewhat better since it
    showed less overall frame flexing during turns,
    giving kids a bit more stability and confidence.

Best Electric Scooter for Big Kids and Adults
Razor E300 Electric Scooter.
  • For the kids who have it all, including good
    coordination and vigilance, this electric scooter
    is an awesome toy for kids. They'll be the envy
    of the neighborhood for sure. When we tested the
    E300, kids literally came out of their houses to
    see it and try it out. It doesn't go too fast,
    only about 15mph. That's certainly fast enough to
    get a kid in trouble, but not fast enough to make
    sure trouble is around every corner. In our
    tests, on flat suburban streets, we were able to
    squeeze about 45 minutes out of a single charge.
    Charging time is about 12 hours, so it's perfect
    to charge overnight. The throttle control is an
    intuitive twist, and it includes a hand brake for
    fast stopping power. The standing platform is
    quite large, big enough for even an adult with
    size 12 shoes to stand with their feet to the
    side. The steering is stable, the pneumatic tires
    are big and strong enough for most surfaces. We
    took it on a gravel path and it did quite well,
    maintaining a pretty smooth ride even over the
    bumps. This is a truly awesome and fun scooter.
    Make sure you get your kids a helmet and
    elbow/knee pads - a 15mph fall is nothing to
    scoff at! Cons? Well, the battery charge time is
    a bit long, and the instruction manual is very
    specific about the charging patterns you need to
    maintain. If you do not follow the
    charge/discharge instructions, the battery will
    definitely die within a couple years.
