Are you looking to avoid the stress of public transportation, regain mobility, save time or do physical activity? An adult scooter can become a real urban mobility solution.
Scooter for adults
The main characteristics to consider before buying an adult scooter are: the diameter of the wheels that must be adjusted to the types of movements envisaged, the possibility of folding it, its weight, its reliability. All adult scooters on our website are folding scooters with height-adjustable handlebars.
Weight and size of wheels, main features of choice of his foldable adult scooter
The choice of a foldable adult scooter depends on the journeys one intends to make. There are three main types:
- For short trips or if you want to continue to take public transport (mixed use), prefer scooters fairly compact and light. You will have a good driving and a low enough weight to carry. Such a folding scooter weighs between 3 and 4 kilos and can support a weight of up to 100 kg.
- On the other hand, for large trips, or if you want to completely eliminate public transport, opt for a big wheel scooter (180mm and more) which will be much more pleasant to ride, both in terms of comfort and effort to provide To advance. It will however be heavier if you are brought to carry it (between 4 and 5 kilos). The models of large adult scooters that we propose can suit people up to 1m90 thanks to a handlebar adjustable in height and weighing up to 100 kg.
- There are also intermediate models of adult scooters that will only be a little heavier than smaller models but will bring more comfort and performance (wheel diameter 140 to 180mm). This type of folding scooter also feasible for a passage in public transport is however a little more bulky than smaller models.
In any case, choose a brand known to reduce reliability problems, but especially to be sure to find the small room that one day or another, you will necessarily miss you.
Adult scooters: a means of transportation and physical activity
Going on a scooter will save you time on the journey and allow you to travel far more easily (ideal for Sunday visits and walks).
The scooter is also a physical activity. However, as most people propel the scooter with the same leg always, muscle efforts are not always balanced. So think of skating by alternating the legs so that the effort is not asymmetrical.
How to maintain a scooter?
To maximize the lifespan of your scooter, be sure to check the tightening of the screws from time to time.
The bearings allow the wheels to turn, they are sensitive to water so do not hesitate to dry them if necessary.
