FAQ's - All about Micro Scooters


This blog will answer all your questions - but after reading, if you still have a query, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

Mini Micro Scooter Age

The Mini Micro Scooter range caters for children from 2 to 5 years old. This multi-award-winning preschool scooter is brimming with features that make it shine. Lean to steer design, tough anodised stem, extra grippy footplate, adjustable handlebar and increased weight limit of 35kg - children can start scooting earlier and keep going for longer.

Micro Scooter or Balance Bike?

Both a scooter and a balance bike will encourage your child to get outdoors and exercise healthily. Both will also promote the early development of balance, spatial awareness, coordination and gross motor skills. 3-wheeled scooters are probably slightly more straightforward for a younger child to get to grips with, given that they stand upright on their own and can be hopped on and off easily. Balance bikes are equally as intuitive but require practice to get the hang of, something a very young child might not yet have the resilience to master.   


Which Micro Scooter is best for Adults?

At the other end of the scale, scooters for adults are increasing in popularity. Whether you want an alternative form of transport for the commute to work or just want to be able to keep up with the kids, scooters can be a practical and fun choice. 

  • For longer scooting trips, a larger wheeled scooter with a desk that absorbs the bumps might be the best bet – something like the Micro Flex Deluxe
  • For everyday scooting, you can't beat the Micro Classic, Micro’s original scooter for adults and still a bestseller.

Which Micro Scooter for Adults?

Or why not try something a bit different? Designed to celebrate 25 years of Micro, the Micro Navigator is premium retro chic! Tan leatherette handles, curved handlebars and a wide wood-effect deck bring some classic cool – a real head-turner.

Micro Scooter with Suspension

The Micro Suspension scooter is Micro’s first ever scooter with both front and rear suspension, delivering a more comfortable ride even over rough terrain. An excellent scooter for larger riders and longer journeys.

Why are Micro Scooters so Expensive?

Micro scooters are more expensive than other scooters because they are designed using the best quality, superior components. From design all the way through to manufacture and delivery. Precision engineering and using only the finest parts means that choosing a Micro scooter all but guarantees that, unlike other gifts, you and your children will still be on your scooters next year, the year after that and the year after that. And when there does come a time when your scooter needs a bit of a service or a glow-up, replacement parts are available for all scooters, ensuring that micro scooters have a never-ending life span and will not end up in landfill. To borrow a phrase - a Micro scooter is for life, not just for Christmas.
