Determine for the user what age can you buy scooter. The decision to save and buy one car for the whole family is unlikely to be correct. For children who are just beginning to explore this vehicle, it is better to choose a model with three wheels. This will allow the child gradually to learn to keep balance and avoid many injuries. To stay at this scooter too long is not worth it – go to a two-wheeled have about a year, not later, otherwise the child can be stuck in your fear to transfer to a more adult and difficult to manage the car. Therefore, the first scooter you can save money by purchasing a model made of plastic, the material will wear out just to the point when he would no longer be needed.
When choosing traditional scooters, two-wheeled, pay attention primarily on the wheel. Matters their size – the larger the wheel, the higher the driving speed, but at the same time, reduced maneuverability. This model will fit adult confident in their abilities rider. The width of the tire (not to be confused with the diameter) is directly proportional to the stability of the scooter. The material from which made the wheel is also important. Plastic wheels are rare, usually in children or cheap models. They will last for a very long time and fit to drive on a perfectly flat surface. Polyurethane wheels vary in hardness. The higher the number, the more sensitive you will clash with the stones and potholes on the road. Soft wheels will negate this inconvenience, but on perfectly smooth asphalt, of course, lose more rigid. The universal can be called wheels with pneumatic tires, they will pass on a variety of roads and even on light off road (sand and grass).
There are scooters with adjustable and nereguliruemaia the height of the handlebars. The last option you should choose, if you purchase a scooter for a child (then the machine will grow along with it) or assume that the use of the purchase will be a few people.
The choice of a folding model or a fully static design also depends on your needs. Folding scooter is easier to carry in transport, to store in an apartment with lack of space and lift to the desired floor.
The stock brakes on this vehicle, oddly enough, necessarily. For children it is better to prefer scooters with foot brake. Since manual they can push too hard, fearing a precarious situation on the road – it will lead to injury. For adults, the ideal would be a combination of both types of brakes.
And finally, a few minor but nonetheless important details. The wheel of the scooter should be covered with a non-slip material to prevent slippage of the hands can special limiters on both sides. The same requirements apply to the platform. In addition, children's scooters and can be installed for more boards to the leg while driving are not slipping.
