Which two wheel scooter for kids and teens?

Scooting to school is one of the most popular ways to travel, kids love it and it's a great way to start the day with a burst of energy. We have a range of two wheel scooters which are suitable for kids and teens to use. All of our two wheelers are foldable (expect our freestyle range) and compact for easy transporting and storage. It’s important they’re using a safe, comfortable and durable scooter that will last years. This guide is here to help you understand the differences between our two wheelers and understand what you need to look for when purchasing a two wheel scooter for the school run.

Micro Sprite scooter for school kids

The Sprite is a great first two wheel scooter for school kids. It’s lightweight design and smaller size makes it easy for them to carry and manoeuvre. It has a larger wheel on the front to be able to smoothly travel over small stones and bumps in the pavement. The handle bar adjusts for a comfortable ride as they grow.

Sprite wheels

•  Suitable for ages 5 – adult
•  Wheel size 120mm front and 100mm back
•  Scooter weight 2.7kgs
•  Max Load 100kg
•  Handle bar height 63-93 cm
•  Comes in range of colours and patterns

Rocket scooter for kids and teens

The Rocket is larger than the Sprite model with a wider deck, brake and wheels. These wider features provide more stability when scooting and makes the rocket an easy ride. Due to these larger features the Rocket is slightly heavier. It too has an adjustable handle bar for kids to grow alongside their scooter.

Rocket wheel

•  Wider 120mm wheels
•  Scooter weight 4.3kgs
•  Max Load 100kg

The Speed+ model is the largest and great for older kids and teens. With the biggest wheels and built in shock absorbing system it makes the Speed+ a faster and smoother ride. Like the Rocket, the Speed+ also has a wider deck giving you extra room. Due to its size we recommend this scooter from at least 7 years.

Two wheeled scooters for kids and teens

What a scooter for the school run needs:

  1. The scooter has a front wheel of at least 120mm. This we ensure your scooter can make it over small stones and up slight curbs.

  2. The scooter has a brake to slow down effectively and stop suddenly if needed.

  3. The handle bars can be positioned above waist height, slightly below your elbows.

  4. The deck has no square edges which can develop sharp points.

  5. The weight of the scooter is right for the rider. Check age and weight guides.
