The difference between a 2 wheel and 3 wheel kids scooter

Struggling to make the decision between a two wheel scooter and three wheel scooter for your child? Micro has a great range of kids' scooters to suit every child depending on their confidence and experience. Whether they would prefer the stability of a three wheel scooter, are ready to cruise to school on a two wheeler or want something to use at the skate park. This will guide will help you make your decision and find the best scooter for your 5-12 year old.

Stability
3 wheel scooters are perfect for kids who need a stable robust scooter.  The Mini Micro and Maxi Micro scooters are self standing scooters which are great for developing balance with good safety design.  These 3 wheel scooters are the perfect choice for improving confidence and co-ordination.
2 wheel scooters are ideal for kids who are confident and have good balance on the deck of the scooter. For those confident, the Sprite is a great first 2 wheel scooter with a lightweight and compact design.
Turning
3 wheeled scooters use a tilt and lean steering meaning you lean in the direction you want to go and the wheels will turn in that direction. This innovative lean to steer style is easy to learn and has been designed to develop co-ordination as they ride.
2 wheeled scooters steer like a bike, turning the handles in the direction you want to go. If your child hasn’t had a scooter before but has experience on a bike then a 2 wheeler with familiar steering is a great option.
