Presenting A Kick Scooter For Everyone - Adult Kick Scooter _____________________________________________________________________________________ By Reon Fasno - http://adultkickscooter.net Kick scooters were first created out of the need for kids to find something else to play with. It was invented by using roller skate wheels and putting them to a plank of wood creating something that is very much similar to a skateboaAdult Kick Scooter The handle was made out of a 2 x 4 piece of wood and the handlebars were made out of either a split 2 x 4 or a pipe that was attached to the top of the handlebars. You can propel the scooter to move forward by pushing off the ground with one foot while the other foot remains on the board. It took awhile for the kick scooters to pick up since it was not that durable. The bicycle and skateboard had then become more popular. It was only in 1990 when Wim Ouboter saw the need and created a sturdier version of the push scooter for his sister whose one leg was shorter than the other. She couldn't ride a bike but could push off a scooter. His company in Switzerland is known as Micro Mobility Systems which created the Micro Skate Scooter carried in the US under Razor USA. Razor USA, which is synonymous with the name scooter, made the first aluminum version in the US. They modernized the kick scooter and made it more stable and stylish with different colors. They have the two wheelers and three wheelers series for kids 5 years old and older and yet another series for kids 8 years and older. Another major brand, the Toucan Kick Scooter comes with 21 inch wheels that lets you fly off with just one kick. The newer styles of kick scooters are quiet, with polyurethane wheels, rear fender brake, hand brakes, shock absorbing system, hollow steering shaft and slip-proof handle grips. Many are sleek, foldable and can easily be carried in a bag or brought indoors. There are adult foldable versions too like the Xootr that are made of sturdier parts and have a wider and longer deck to stand on, hand brake and larger wheels. Racing scooters use bicycle wheels and cannot be folded while there are versions that are used for off-road use called Mountain Scooter. A couple of years ago, Nextsport came up with Fusion, a four wheel scooter which is heavier and bigger but more stable than Razor or Micro. More surprisingly, kick scooters have become more than just a toy. It now comes with double rear wheels and is being used in the industrial by workers and staff in plants, hospitals, airports for extra mobility in sprawling buildings and facilities. Kick scooters are not recommended not just to provide fun for kids and adults alike but for those short trips which might require walking as it is very much faster. Some types can even be folded to the size of a briefcase which can be taken on a bus or taken to your office. You can go from home to bus stop, hop on the bus with your foldable scooter then get off the bus and scooter your way from bus stop to office or anywhere you might want to go. So… What’s Next ?
