MAXI MICRO SCOOTERS…

THE MICRO SPRITE SCOOTER IS…
- Suitable for children aged 5-12 years
- Fantastic for children hankering after a “cool” two wheeled scooter
- Great for growing children because it has an adjustable handlebar
- Easy to transport. The whole scooter is quick and easy to fold down.
- Similar to a bike in terms of steering. You turn the handlebars in the direction you want to go.
CHOOSE A MICRO SPRITE SCOOTER IF:
- Your child is new to 2 wheeled scooting – the Sprite is the perfect scooter to learn on.
- Would love a robust and colourful two wheeled scooter
- Your child has good balance
- You want a scooter that is easy to transport – the Micro Sprite folds down and also comes complete with kickstand (which means it stands on it’s own rather than having to lean it against a wall).
- Has been specifically designed and crafted for children aged 5-12.
- Is the best first trick/stunt scooter for younger children.
- Is lightweight making it easier for children to manage.
- Has a high technical specification including a superior headset and clamp
CHOOSE AN MX TRIXX SCOOTER IF:
- Your child is jumping off kerbs on their Mini Micro (they should be doing it on an MX Trixx instead).
- Your child enjoys trips to the skatepark or is asking for a cool 2 wheeled stunt scooter
- You want stunt scooter that will withstand all your budding stunt scooter star can throw at it.
