Different Types of Scooters
Read on to find out about all the different kinds of scooters in one short guide.
Kick Scooters (Also Known As Push Scooters, Crusing Scooters or Traditional Scooters or Just a Scooter)
Generally kick scooters are best to get from a to b. Users will just use them to cruise (hence the name cruising scooters). They tend to be built for travelling along smooth terrain (pavements, parks etc) but not along grass. They are not designed to do tricks, stunts or jumps on.
Three Wheel Scooters
First of all, you can get three wheel kick scooters, so these are scooters which kids will use to travel along the pavements or a the park. They are quite often designed for young kids to use as they offer more stability and are safer. However, there are also lots of scooters with 3 wheels for older kids around now as well.
You will also see other types of scooters with 3 wheels. Scissor scooters and flickr scooter are both designs which hve 3 wheels.
However, if you want to do tricks or stunts you should avoid a foldable scooter. This is because they are not strong enough to withstand the jumps and tricks used in the skatepark.
