Micro Black adult scooter review

Micro Black is an adult scooter from the amazing Micro range of child and adult scooters.

'With exceptional Swiss construction and uncompromising quality, the Micro Black is a comfortable scooter suitable for everyday use.
The low to the ground deck lessens the strain on your back and the wider, longer footplate gives extra room for those with larger feet – giving you more control when scooting. The scooter is easy to fold making it quick to store and convenient to transport.
Along with the Flex Deluxe the Micro Black has the largest wheels of all the adult scooters in our range. This means you can get around faster and with less effort than with any other scooter.
The scooter has one of the highest adjustable handlebar heights making it ideal for adults.
The kickstand enables the scooter to stand upright by itself. It can be kicked forward or back when you are ready to ride and flicked back easily when resting to provide a stand for parking the scooter.
The Micro Black is our preferred choice for everyday use whether scooting on the school run or as part of your journey to work.'

I was impressed with the quality of Micro Scooters from the moment I put my hands on the Mini Micro my parents bought for my then 2 year old son. When he outgrew that we received a Maxi Micro and the Mini Micro went to my younger daughter. I was teaching her to ride it and couldn't really keep up with both the kids on their scooters. I'm really bad at jogging/running for any period of time and so I started looking into the adult scooters in the Micro range. I decided it was time to get one and asked my husband to make it my birthday gift. He wasn't really convinced I'd use it and honestly it's quite a bit of money to spend on 'a toy'. Thankfully he didn't have to decide as Micro Scooters were kind enough to send me their Micro Black for a review. All in time for my birthday! :)
So what are my thoughts on the scooter for an adult?
Well, I LOVE IT! That's sums it up pretty nicely :)

Huge pros:
- speed, being able to keep up with the children
- using it to run errands when I'm on my own, don't have to take the car to get to town quickly
- foldable for ease of storage and to put in the boot of the car when needed
- super easy to ride
- height adjustable handlebar
- easy to use brake
- looks great
- build quality
- people stop you in the street to comment how awesome it is.

Small cons:
- hard to brake when wheel is wet, have to take extra care when it's raining and go slower than normally
- the attention - people stare, even now after I've been using it for months I still get stared at which may put some people off haha.

If you're even considering buying an adult scooter do take it on a test ride. Micro Scooters offer test ride, just check out their website for details. You can also see these scooters in good high street stores like John Lewis so you can get the feel of them. 

I've been using the Micro Black nearly every day since I got it in March. I use it on most school runs unless my husband is picking our son up. It's absolutely a fantastic piece of kit and I don't think I could live without it now I know how amazing it is.
