Why Micro?

The buzz about Micro Kickboard is that Micro offers the best scooters and kickboards for toddlers and preschoolers. Maybe you've read the reviews, or seen it in the press but you've also noticed Micro scooters cost a bit more, and you want to know more! 

Read on to find out the answer to the question: "Why Micro Kickboard?" 

1) Swiss Quality

 Micro is a Swiss company that loves design, and it shows. Micro's minimalist design combines with quality materials and precision engineering to create scooters which are exceptionally strong, yet also lightweight. The tight construction feels solid while you are riding, creating a smooth, quiet ride. There's no shake and rattle when you roll on a Micro.


 2) The Scooter you never have to throw away! 

  Micro designs all of their scooters so that every part is replaceableWhether it's a wheel that wears down or a just a set of new hand grips, we have the replacement part and the easy instructions. The result is that your Micro can last virtually forever. Parents sometimes send us photos of three kids with the ONE Mini they all shared: when the eldest child grew out of it, it got passed on to the next child, and the next. While it's possible that your Mini will last years without ever needing a replacement part, you can rest assured if one is needed, we will have it. 


3) Unparalleled Glide

 Micro’s smooth glide is beyond compare. With features including wheels made of extra-thick polyurethane (PU), and a flexible deck constructed of fiberglass-reinforced ABS plastic, Micro scooters and kickboards absorb the bumps, and offer a smoother, shock-absorbing ride that is both more comfortable and more stable.


4) Safety First

Purple Mini Deluxe lifestyle 1 (1)  Our range of Swiss designed and engineered scooters are renowned for their durability. Expertly crafted to be long-lasting and robust, every single Micro scooter undergoes a gauntlet of tests to ensure it can withstand all of the pressure a child or adult can throw at it.

5) Lean-to-Steer: more fun, at every age

Micro's three-wheeled kickboard-style ride offers the advantage of being significantly more stable for the youngest riders, while also offering a more fun ride as your child gets older. To steer a kickboard-style scooter, children use their body weight to lean right or left, resulting in the scooter curving right or left. Little ones make gentle, stable turns, while the older ones gradually learn to lean into the turns a little more dramatically creating a feeling of 'surfing' the sidewalks. This weight-shifting skill is one they can use later in life, in sports such as skiing, golfing, and surfing. Additionally, doctors say the "Lean-to-Steer" helps young children develop balance and coordination.   Lean To Steer


6) Designed so kids can be in control

 Mini Bing Kids are the boss of the Mini and Maxi scooters. They are perfectly proportioned for young kids, and so lightweight that even the youngest child can pick it up to turn it around or carry it, easily and safely. The deck is low-to-the-ground (just one inch away!) making it easy for kids to to step on and off with confidence.


7) A Scooter you can use for transport

Is it necessary for a scooter ride to feel 'comfortable'? Only if you want to make it further than a block or two. We've already covered some of the reasons for the Micro's smooth glide, but it's features like the quality rubber hand grips that will help your little one's hands absorb the bumps so that they can go the distance (often miles and miles). Lower quality plastic decks and hand grips will cause discomfort in a short period of time. Many families use their Micros for trips to the park or school, and for or sightseeing on family vacations. It’s a great way to get around with little ones that builds confidence while offering your child fun and exercise.

8) Nice Style + Cool Colors

Everyone likes to have a cool ride, even preschoolers! You can always count on Micro to keep the colors and styles fresh and fun. With a rainbow of different color options, and even more accessories, your child will undoubtedly have the coolest ride on the block!

9) Micro Scooters for the Entire Family

There’s a Micro for everyone in your family, from the the youngest member to the oldest, and everyone in between. Our convertible sit and ride scooter, the Mini 3in1 Deluxe Plus, is designed for children as young as 12 months. It may be optimistic thinking, but we like to say that Micro has a scooter for everyone, from ages 1 to 100.
