I have owned and kicked my Monster Kickboard for several years now, and as a person with severe balancing issues I was so delighted to ride this 3 wheeled scooter/skateboard hybrid. It has a great steering mechanism that allows you to lean left and right using the joystick, and adopt a one hand surfing position rather than the traditional two hand T-bar position.
To top that it has humongous Polyurethane wheels that grips the surface and lets you fly on smooth areas like gliding on ice.
While that's all good an dandy on flat smooth concrete roads or high end bicycle lanes, the real problem begins when the road becomes bumpy, tiled or heavily steeped. It has no suspension and the flat wide wheel makes you feel like a pebble going down a staircase.
Here are some tech specs from Micro's website :
Storage and Travel
Folds to 30" x 12.5" x 7.5"
25.5" to 38" from deck, 41" from ground
Front and back: 120 mm Fatties. Polyurethane
Length/width of scooter
30" x 12.5"
T-Bar and Joystick
Length/width of standing deck 18" x 5.5"
This is what I have in mind for it, to make it a perfect urban transport solution:
1. Electric motor (350w-500w) - cause I'm sick of kicking uphill.
