As the world turns, we're all trying to do our bit to be more green and a lot more eco-friendly. One way we can do this is to swap our car to a more green form of transport.
With the influx of electric scooters, choosing the right one can be super tricky. And when it comes to choosing a Kid’s Electric Scooter, it can be a minefield. This guide shows you a selection of the best ones on the market.
Well, that's easy. An electric scooter is a motorized scooter that has a battery and motor to drive it along. They have different speeds, some going up to 30 Km, modern disc brakes, bright lights for nighttime riding, and can be connected to your smartphone for more features.
They're becoming incredibly popular with some UK Cities trialling them in to hire by the mile. Basically, they're everywhere and they aren't going away. Except for the hire scheme e-scooters, they can't be legally ridden on the public highway. But as the world turns its back on the combustion engine and looks at more affordable forms of low-carbon footprint transport scooters are here to stay.
So, you're ready to teach your loved one how to ride an e-scooter. So, what do you need to look for in a Kids Electric Scooter? We give a rundown of the main points to consider when purchasing an electric scooter for your small one as well as looking at four kids electric scooters that we love.
Firstly, even though these electric scooters are relatively slow, falling off one is still going to hurt a bit. Getting them a basic helmet and set of elbow and knee pads can stop those tears and bruises as they learn to navigate their new kid’s electric scooter.
Brakes. Make sure you pick one that has a set of decent brakes. Even the slow kid’s electric scooters are nippy. Test them yourself before they get on and show them how to stop the e-scooter safely.
Don't go for a flimsy frame, go for something with plenty of strength and feels firm. You don't want it falling apart at the first sign of a bump. Check the firmness of the frame before you buy to make sure it isn't going to fall apart as your child rides into the sunset.
Scooters are fun, and some of them can be extra. Having a quick Electric Scooter is great for nipping down the paths.
But for kids, let's slow it down a little right. You definitely don't want to be chasing your child down the road as they open the throttle and disappear to start a new life. Teach them how to take things slow, till they learn how to fully control their e-scooter.
So, let's take a look at four of the best kids electric scooters available on the market today.
