The Micro Maxi Deluxe, for ages 5-12, is now green - in more than one sense! As Micro focuses on sustainability and corporate responsibility, we've developed the ECO-Collection, featuring Micro scooters created with recycled materials - specifically from the maritime industry. The 'green plastic' used for the production of the ECO-Collection (specifically in the Micro scooter deck and brake!) is from discarded and obsolete fishing gear, ropes, trawls, etc that would've normally been dropped into the sea. Our global headquarters, based in Switzerland, discovered that using recycled “green plastic” from fishing nets not only affects the health of oceans and marine life, it also reduces the company’s ecological footprint during manufacturing by up to 82% compared to using non-recycled materials. In an effort to reduce our own waste for the ECO-Collection, we have minimized packaging where possible, using FS-certified paper, and used packaging created from degradable material.

The Maxi Deluxe ECO has the smoothest, quietest ride available thanks to high quality materials through and through. Thick polyurethane wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck work together to absorb bumps in the sidewalk, making it the perfect companion for any outing.
An original proprietor of the lean-to-steer design, we have seen it all when it comes to Micro scooter engineering and fully recommend the lean-to-steer method as the safest and most fun way for kids to ride. The T-bar provides stability as children steer by using their body weight to lean right or left. This intuitive way of steering limits jerky turns and develops essential balance and coordination skills.
Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Maxi ECO is recommended for children up to 110 lbs. (*The maximum load for Minis recently increased to 50kg or 110lbs following as a result of updated testing. The super strong Mini was tested for a higher maximum load and tests showed a new higher rating on all the Micro Mini styles).
SAFETY - For best protection, we strongly recommend that children wear helmets and knee pads when riding. Non marking wheels allow children to learn to scoot in the safety of your home.
Great way to get people from all ages & abilities to enjoy being active. Thanks 😊
