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!
J'ai commandé la trottinette avec un shoulder strap et j'en suis très heureuse. J'avais quelques questions et on m'a rapidement répondu par courriel. La trottinette se transporte bien et avec ses grandes roues, il est facile de parcourir de grandes distances. Elle se plie aisément et avec la strap, je peux l'emmener dans le métro ou les commerces lorsque je fais des courses. De plus, un de mes grands bonheurs réside dans le fait que cela fait sourire les gens que de voir une «madame» à trottinette. Have fun!
My girlfriend is just loving her new scooter, she turned 50 last year and she feels like she 14 all over again! Love the quality of this kickboard, the only improvement I would suggest is that the brake is not very good when it gets wet. Living here on the west coast we get a lot of rain, and if we didn't play in the rain, we wouldn't play much at all. Haha. Otherwise we love the board!
Excellent achat. La trottinette que j'ai choisie est de grande qualité (système de roulement, système de freinage, roues, plateau, matériau, peinture et finition, système de pliage). Très beau produit, solide, résistant, mécanique de conception suisse. J'ai fait de nombreuses analyses pour choisir mon modèle (suis en milieu urbain avec trottoirs défoncés..) et je ne me suis trompée avec celui-ci, dont les grandes roues me permettront aussi de me promener en forêt. Bien emballé pour la livraison (qui était gratuite). Le service de ce magasin en ligne a été fiable, efficace et rapide. Bref, excellente expérience avec ce magasin pour acheter un excellent produit. Seul bémol: j'ai regretté qu'il n'y ait pas de sangle de transport inclus dans le colis. Mon prochain achat sera probablement une housse pour transporter ma trottinette.
