Are kick scooters just for kids?
This is a question many people ask themselves when they are looking for an alternative mode of transportation. We grew up seeing these as kid’s toys because when you became an adult you drove a car or a motorcycle. Adult bicycles are popular, but the adult kick scooter has long been on the fringe of recreational transportation.
You don’t have to be a kid, and at times, the kick scooter is ideal for adult applications. The problem that most people have is finding scooters made for adults. If you go to major retailers, then you’ll find many scooters for kids, but nothing for an adult.
The best way to find adult scooters is either online or via cycling store. You can find type you want with the specifications you need.
Why would an adult want a kick scooter?
We’ve all heard of the treacherous commutes where people spend hours inching along interstates to get to work. Many people who live in urban areas choose to walk to work instead, especially if it’s only a few blocks between their apartment and work. A kick scooter would be a faster way to get to work than walking and it doesn’t take up a lot of space.
A bicycle is difficult to maneuver around people and you have to lock it up on a bike stand that is hopefully near your office. A scooter folds up and can be taken with you.
Anyone who has a job delivering goods in urban areas might also choose a scooter over a bicycle because of its cost and ability to move through people.
Exercise is another big reason why an adult might want a kick scooter. While bicycles get all the exercise glory, a kick scooter works out the legs muscles and provides an excellent cardio workout.
Adults who use a kick scooter need to be able to park it standing occasionally and that’s why we created Scooter Rizer. It’s a kickstand for your scooter, so you never have to leave it on the ground again.
