Do you want to get a new kick scooter? If so, you are in luck! There are plenty of great options for adults that we will be looking at today. Kick scooters have become quite popular the last few years and there is no sign of them slowing down. We will go over everything from where to buy one, what style to choose, and how much they cost. So if you’re ready, let’s jump right into it!
What to Consider When Buying a Kick Scooter for Adults?
If you are looking for a cheap alternative to driving your car or public transportation then buy something that is within your budget! Some of the most expensive options come with a lot of features. If you are looking for something that has more than one brake, good wheels and other cool extras then it is going to cost more money. One thing to keep in mind though is that if your budget at first was $100, but you find out something costs $500-600 and it fits all your needs perfectly, don’t be afraid to spend a little bit more on this type of scooter because they do last much longer!
Cheap alternatives can be bought at department stores such as Target or Walmart which should not cost more than $100 bucks if they have them on sale. On Amazon there are other options in this price range too but remember shipping may be an additional expense so factor that into how much money will be needed upfront.
This can depend on personal preference. There are three main styles: children’s (who have shorter legs), adult size & compact folding style. Depending on what kind of kick scooter you buy there may be weight limits.
This is a question you are going to have to answer for yourself, but there are some things that can make the scooter safer: wider wheels and easy brake access. The safety features should depend on your own personal needs as well though. If you live in an area where riding a kick scooter down hills or off curbs is commonplace then maybe it’s not so important to get one with really good brakes because those may wear out faster than if you were just using it around town on flat surfaces.
Before buying any type of scooter first think about how much storage space do I really have? This will save trouble later when you realize that storing this thing might be impossible! Finding somewhere at home to store it also ensures that you won’t leave it outside and forget about it.
The Weight Limit
Consider your weight limit and your height limit. If you are over 250 pounds, then the weight limit is likely to be at 300 pounds or less (although this may vary with different brands).
The Handlebar Height
Another thing to consider when buying a scooter for adults that has an adjustable handle bar – how high off the ground do I want it? You can raise it higher if you’re tall, lower if shorter. Again just make sure there’s enough room where ever you store it!
Front Wheel Size
Bigger size wheels make for smoother rides but they also cause more vibration so while bigger might seem better- in some cases it isn’t. The same goes for rear wheel sizes as well which should match up nicely with front wheel size.
