Micro brand kick-scooters was the first brand I considered when first entering into the adult kick-scooter world. At first it was very difficult deciding which brand to choose from because there seems to be thousands of different adult kick-scooters on the market. I was also concerned that an adult kick-scooter might be too slow to commute on and the quality might not be all that good. While growing up as a kid I had an old rusty metal kick-scooter that was very slow and took tons of effort to get any kind of speed. If an adult kick-scooter resembled anything I remembered about that old relic, I wanted no part of it.
Why the Micro Sprite kick-scooters are king
My attitude towards adult kick-scooters started to change after reading many positive views about them and seeing many adults starting to use them to get around in Rochester, New York. A bike shop where I bought my folding bike from in New York City known as NYCEWheels had many reviews on different brands on both their online store and YouTube channel. I truly trust this bike shop when they suggest any transportation products to customers because they thoroughly test and sell the ones that pass all their rigorous tests.
Micro kick-scooters were praised up and down not only by the NYCEWheels staff but also everyone who bought one. Even Hugh Jackman the actor rides one around Manhattan New York with his daughter.
The Micro Sprite kick-scooter is outstanding
The model I bought was the Micro Sprite kick-scooter. Micro does sell many different models with different sized wheels for every member of the family ranging from the children all the way to the parents. The Micro Sprite is one of their highest rated models because it’s very compact and small but extremely durable making it excellent for both kids and adults.
At first I was skeptical when it arrived because I thought the small light size would be a major hindrance on its ridibility. It didn’t take long before I was not only pleasantly proved wrong but truly fell in love with everything about this tiny versatile kick-scooter. This bad boy feels very stable and solid and doesn’t feel rickety or loose when riding over some pretty rough surfaces and bumps. Made out of high quality solid rubber the wheels abosorb the bumps way better than expected and they roll very fast. Places that would normally take me an hour were now only taking around twenty minutes tops.
The more I rode the Micro Sprite kick-scooter the more I got addicted to it and couldn’t stay off it. When I went to the grocery store I would put it in the shopping cart while picking up groceries and when I got done, unfold it very fast and easy due to the excellent quick release design.
There’s also an adjustment to set your handlebars at different heights and very well made foam grips that provide outstanding comfort and absorb most of the vibrations in the road. My favorite part is that these handlbars can also fold down to the sides making this urban commuting king even smaller yet, and with a weight of only five pounds making it the lightest kick-scooter on the market. I’ve carried this beautiful machine for over two miles with no problem.
Micro went all out on the quality and details on the Micro Sprite kick-scooter. The construction and paint job is smooth and perfect and all the locking mechanisms that fold or adjust work flawlessly. I’ve never felt any unnecessary flex in the deck while riding it and my feet never slipped due to the rough gripping surface they they put on it. Another benefit even though you can’t put both feet on the deck at the same time is that it’s streamlined making it very easy to get very efficient kicking allowing you to gain some considerable speed. Also at no time did I ever feel unsafe trying to stop on the Micro Sprite kick-scooter because the back foot brake works extremely well.
When my dad first saw the Micro Sprite kick-scooter he scoffed at it the same way I did. You could see the look of doubt on his face at to what this hidden rocket on wheels could really do. It wasn’t until he jumped on it for a test ride that the doubt soon turned in to belief and within minutes he was hooked. He had to get one and within a few days he had an incredible Micro Sprite kick-scooter of his one, only in green instead of black.
Soon he was riding all over the place with us meeting at the stores, restaurants or just going out to have fun. A few times we went out kick-scooting for round trips up to six miles. We both started to turn into kick-scooting maniacs and looked for any excuse to take the Micro Sprite kick-scooters out and test their limits. My dad loves his kick-scooter so much that he’s become very obsessed and protective of it. Nobody can get close and touch it and definitely not take it out for a ride unless he tells you it’s okay to do so.
We both own more than one kick-scooter and our second one is more expensive and bigger made by a different brand but still whenever we are looking for something that’s very versatile and easy to carry around the Micro Sprite kick-scooter is the first thing we grab. If you were to look at the Micro Sprite Kick-scooter you would never believe that it doesn’t cost three times as much as it does. The quality and construction is definitely the best for the money and I don’t think any other company could offer as much kick-scooter for the money as micro while still building a product that will have such a great warranty and last so long.
Micro kick-scooters are unbeatable
Micro is the biggest kick-scooter company in the world with the most models to choose from and a ton of accessories to go along with them. Not long after buying my Micro Sprite kick-scooter I bought a travel bag because I do like to fly to New York City and a few other places quite a bit. When I bought the travel bag I couldn’t understand why it didn’t cost way more because it’s made out of very strong and high grade material. This travel bag is handy because you can bring your Micro kick-scooter as checked luggage with no extra fees and when you arrive at your destination, fold the bag up, attach it to your handlebars and ride off. There’s also a compartment on the outside of the bag just in case you want to carry light and bring a few small items.
I never knew how big and well loved the Micro brand was until I was in River Edge, New Jersey about to get on a train at New Landing Bridge to go to Penn Station. An elderly Asian man had the same Micro Sprite kick-scooter as me in the color black. Immediately we got talking and we both agreed that the Micro Sprite kick-scooter was the easiest and most compact kick-scooter to use especially for getting on a train in a big city such as New York City. You could tell by the enthusiasm in his voice and the way he explained how he looked at other models and brands but still chose the Micro Sprite kick-scooter that he totally loved and wouldn’t trade for anything else.
Just like my dad and the Asian gentleman that I talked to I also agree that the Micro Sprite kick-scooter is the best value for the money, and just like their other models are top notch quality and come with an outstanding warranty and customer service. It’s amazing how they can offer such a great price for such an outstanding adult kick-scooter, but than again they are the biggest kick-scooter company in the world that nobody can even get close to competing with.
Micro customer service and quality is top notch
If your looking for a company that can offer a large selection of kick-scooters for the whole family that will last for many years and actually be backed up by outstanding customer service look no further than Micro Kickboard. Also remember that they offer all kinds of accessories to make your kick-scooting experience even more enjoyable ranging from lights, carry straps, travel bags and of course lots of extras for the kids to customize their kick-scooters in unlimited ways.
Thank you for following along and I hope you enjoyed reading this review as much as I did writing it. And as always if anybody wants to buy me a Christmas gift I can always find room for a brand new Micro white or black adult kick-scooter.
