Looking for a 3 wheel scooter for adults?
3 wheel scooters are ideal for a quick way to get around with no worries about balance and falling off. They can be perfect for the commute, doing the school run with the kids, or just getting around. With more stability than their 2 wheel counterparts, they also offer peace of mind.
There are a few things to check before getting a 3 wheel scooter for an adult
- Weight capacity – some 3 wheel scooters that are fine for adults to ride are designed for kids. To make sure an adult will be okay to ride it too, it’s essential to check the weight capacity. Many will hold adults up to 100kg so if you are under that you will be fine.
- The Tallest Handlebar Height – adults also want to make sure that the 3 wheeler has a handlebar height that is tall enough for them. Ideally, you want the handlebar height to reach up to around waist height as that is the ideal height for comfort and control.
- Steering – Some three-wheel scooters for adults have lean to steer steering. You lean right to go right and left to go left. There can be a learning curve, when using lean to steer steering but once you’ve got used to it it makes scooter easy to control and manoeuvre. However, it may be that you would prefer a scooter with handlebar controlled steering.
- Scooter weight You may also want to consider how heavy the scooter is to carry. This may be of importance if you want to to pick it up to take on public transport or to carry when you’re going up a steep hill.
- Foldable Most 3-wheel scooters are foldable. Something that is quick to fold is easier to carry on a bus or train. Some scooters aren’t foldable but you can remove the handlebar from the base. This is good when you need to store it, although it can be a bit fiddly to do this to take on public transport.
- Use of Scooter Is the scooter for short commutes to work, to run errands or just to have fun with the kids? We have options of all 3!
