Best Scooters for Middle Schoolers (Get Them Outdoors!) - Teens and tweens have so much energy, the only challenge is how to channel it. Maybe yours is heading to camp for a couple weeks, or maybe you plan to sign them up for an art class or karate lessons, but you know you don’t want them to spend the rest of their time plugged into SnapChat or YouTube. No problem, with Micro’s line of kickboards and scooters designed for ages 12 years and up, they’ll stay social (in the best sense of the word), active and OUTSIDE, riding from one summer adventure to the next, leaving you with plenty of time for....work or prepping for your 5k..or just reading your way through that summer list.
Micro Rocket - You’ll notice the Rocket has fat wheels, front and back. They look awesome but what’s really great about fat wheels is that they offer extra grip on the ground, so your Middle Schooler will have a smooth, stable ride even when cruising uneven urban sidewalks. On the Rocket, Micro’s famously smooth glide is just a little smoother. During school times, the Rocket can be folded up and carried inside to store in a locker - it's foldable and also lightweight. Best of all, riding Micro is about 3 x faster than walking, which makes the Rocket a great way to get to sports practice or meet up with friends. A perfect scooter for Middle Schoolers because they're all about fun and living in the fast lane.
Kickboard Compact -The Kickboard Compact is perfect for your tween or teen if they are into Micro’s lean-to-steer concept (pretty much the rage in quality scooters these days). Kickboards are similar to skateboards, but they have steering sticks, which offers more control than a skateboard. The Kickboard style ride still lets them curve and carve the pavement on the way to school, or just out and about in the nieghborhood. The Compact kickboard has a lightweight aluminum deck and a patented folding mechanism, which together make this mode of transport easily portable. That means that when they reach their destination, all they have to do is fold it up and carry it inside, that's it, a piece of cake! Did we mention the Compact comes with interchangeable T-Bar and Joystick steering options? It’s like getting a scooter AND a long board for the price of one. Genius huh?! Makes purchasing this super easy- to-transport Kickboard practically a no brainer.
Sprite - The Sprite is Micro’s lightest-weight 2-wheel scooter, weighing less than 6 lbs, yet it's also incredibly strong, with a weight capacity of 220 lbs. Lightweight, strong and durable, the Sprite is the scooter for everyone, and with Micro's cool carrying strap, its the one you can take everywhere. The exceptionally smooth glide is the result of Micro's precision engineering, using the best quality materials available - the deck is aircraft-grade aluminum and the wheels are high quality polyurethane. And, with an adjustable handle bar that extends to 34’ above the deck, the Sprite isn’t just perfect for your Middle Schooler, but it’s kinda perfect for you too, Mom.
Bullet - Let’s cut to the chase. if Justin Bieber or Steph Curry were still in middle school, they’d totally be riding the Bullet. With it’s sleek gray green metallic finish, a two-way kickstand and 120mm wheels with extra PU that really helps to absorb the crack, plus a weight capacity of over 200lbs, the Micro Bullet is the right choice for the Middle Schooler who wants to not just look cool, but feel cool.
Monster - Volcano Grey - If you’re into a fast ride with solid stability, and also want to maintain a skateboard style vibe, well the Monster Kickboard is where it’s at. The fat wheels offer even more traction so you can carve corners at speed, looking like a total pro the whole way. Grab a Monster Kickboard in new, scary sick Volcano Grey and start carving your hood today.
