This scooter is noticeably better made than the basic Razor ones, with more durable parts and tighter tolerances. The flexible board makes a big difference in the quality of the ride without feeling like it's eating a ton of energy the way some shocks do. Overall quite happy with it. Folding takes a bit of dexterity and time, so might not be the best choice if you need to fold and unfold every couple of minutes.
Perfect scooter for a big adult: I am 188 cm (6'2) and about 85 Kg (187 Lbs), shoe-size 11.
This is my 3rd consecutive spring/summer using the Micro Flex 200mm, the 2nd consecutive one using it to commute to work, almost every day. I absolutely LOVE this scooter! It is noticeably lighter (1.2 kg less) than the Micro suspension scooter, which I had the opportunity to try for a few days, but with the flex in the board still gives me a smooth ride on Calgary's often street paving (and often rough sidewalks and bike path). It is a great workout on the commute back home, where I'm going up a 35m hill in the last in 750m (out of a total of 4 km), and fun on my way to work, where with a few light touches on the break I can just carve down the hill.
I also use it on weekends and evenings to keep up with my daughter, who's on a bike. It folds easily and all the materials are top notch.
Last but not least, the customer care through Kickboard Canada is excellent, both by email and phone. And free shipping.
I bought this to reduce my commute. I haven't been able to use it outside yet because it's winter in Canada but I can tell it is a quality scooter. I've been using it in my basement because I'm just too excited not to be using it. I love that it has a kickstand and that it folds for easy transportation when I'm not scooting.
My workplace moved offices about a 20 minute walk from my work and I decided to buy this scooter to shorten the commute time to about 10 minutes. I have been using it for 1 week so far and am loving it. The quality is excellent and the materials feel very sturdy and I can tell that it will last for a long time. It's been many years since I last rode a scooter and it took me a little while to get my balance and my legs used to kicking. It definitely works up my heart when I am trying to kick up on a slight incline! Nonetheless, it is super fun to use, gets me to work in practically no time, and it's building up my muscles and heart. Thank you!
I bought this scooter because I needed to keep up with my kids. Almost 40, and I can't run as fast as them! My kids are learning to ride their bike and with this scooter I can ride alongside them in case they need a hand stopping or whatnot. This scooter is TOP quality! The kids started with a Micro 3-in-1 (highly recommend it!), so I was already familiar with the Micro brand and how excellent they are. This company only makes high quality, durable and long lasting scooters. So I decided to splurge and get myself one. This is such a smooth ride. The wooden flex deck is a nice size and low down so I'm not killing my knees. Such a smooth, quiet and long glide. Love it! Great customer service from this company as well and they shipped my item really fast. Highly recommend!
