The scooter craze is sweeping the nation, and no doubt you’ve just about got used to seeing fully-grown men and women in suits scooting to work in the morning.
Ready to join them? There are all sorts of factors to consider when it comes to choosing your own adult scooter, like whether your scooter folds up, has suspension, or is suitable for the distances you cover.
OUR URBAN SPORTS BRAND
Our urban sports brand offers expert advice for scooter fans.
You should choose your urban scooter based on three criteria: how long your rides are, the type of surface you ride over and whether the scooter folds up.
1. HOW LONG YOUR RIDES ARE
Oxelo offers two types of urban scooter, depending on how far you are travelling:
LESS THAN 5KM
Go for a non-electric model.
MORE THAN 5KM
Go for an electric model.
2. THE TYPE OF SURFACE
Think about the type of ground that you'll be riding on. If it's irregular or rugged, choose a model that has suspension, especially in the front, and ergonomic handles to dampen vibrations in the legs and the arms.
3. TO FOLD OR NOT TO FOLD
If you live in the city and need to get public transport in between scooting the streets, opt for an "EasyFold" model. It can be folded down (or unfolded) in a second and then carried like a suitcase with wheels.
