What is the Best Adult Scooter For Riding With My Child
If you’re looking for an adult push scooter there are lots to choose from. For a good idea of the things to look for when buying a scooter, check out my adult scooter buying guide.
If you’re buying just for the trips out with the kids, there is less to consider. If you are likely to just be using it for short trips such as around the park , to the shops or the short commute to school you may not need a really expensive scooter.
You will probably want to spendmore if you’re going to be using the scooter for heavier use so as when commuting. Or if you plan to use it for years to come, an expenditure on a scooter can be seen as in investment.
Make sure that the scooter has a weight limit that will take your weight. Many scooters have a weight limit of up to 100kg, some 120kg.
It can be handy if the scooter is foldable, so you can put it in your car for those trips to the park, store it easily and carry it when you need to. Also check how heavy the scooter is to carry if you think you might be carrying it a lot.
For durability, look for wheels made out of polyurethane or similar. Adustable handlebars are often good to make sure that the scooter is comfortable for you to ride at your height. The height of the handlebars should ideally come up to waist height.
Hudora Big Wheel Scooter – 205cm wheel
The Hudora is a great scooter budget scooter for going out with the kids. It is foldable and had an adjustable height handlbar of between 79 to 104cm.
The wheels are 205cm so are large but great as you will need to kick less to keep up with the kids but b able to do higher speeds if you want to.
The wheels are PU which is good and they are 87A in durometer. This means the wheels are quite hard and durable. Although softer wheels may provide a comfortable ride, harder wheels will last longer.
The scooter weighs 4.7kg which although not particularly light is comparable with other adult scooters with large wheels
