Xootr MG scooter kicks butt!

I’ll never forget the first time I laid eyes upon the Xootr MG scooter. This adult kick scooter is nothing like the other brands that exist on the market today. The Xootr MG scooter is a pure master piece. It was love at first sight. I discovered the existence of the Xootr MG scooter from the folding and electric bicycle experts, NYCEWheels in New York City. I became aware of adult kick scooters existence while watching reviews of different products on their YouTube channel.

After buying a Brompton Folding Bicycle from NYCEWheels I trusted their knowledge and expertise along with their customer service. At first I was kinda skeptical about the idea of buying an Adult Kick Scooter. I imagined only kids riding them with adults looking completely ridiculous on them. Still I was intrigued by them, and the more I learned about them the more curious I got.

My journey to discovering Xootr MG scooters

Not being sure if I’d like an adult-kick scooter, I decided to buy a cheaper one from another well known brand. I figured that if I didn’t like the scooter it wouldn’t be that big of a deal seeing that I got it at a deep discount. To my surprise I not only liked this kick-scooter a lot, it rode exceptional well compared to the old fashioned metal ones I remembered while growing up.

When I showed my dad the tiny lightweight adult kick-scooter he was completely uninterested in it, as he’s basically the rough manly type. This all changed though once he stepped on it. Withinless than a week one arrived at his door step. We went out riding both our kick-scooters all over the place including grocery stores and restaurants. These scooters were well made and very light but only had room for one foot at a time on their tiny decks.

If only there was enough room to put two adult feet on the deck at the same time. After much debating and wondering if I was willing to pay for the much higher priced Xootr MG Scooter, I took the leap and ordered one. I placed my order online on Amazon from Xootr scooter and only one day later a box arrived at my job. When I finally got home and opened the box I definitely got more than I expected.

Xootr MG scooters have unmatched quality

Stunned and impressed at the same time I didn’t know what to think of the Xootr MG Scooter. Immediately I could see the exceptional quality and workmanship that was put into manufacturing this king of the urban jungle machine. The deck that is made out of magnesium is nice and wide accommodating two adult feet at the same time. Two nice big wheels made of high quality rubber with aluminum centers, and high quality bearings rides like you’re floating on air.

With just a few kicks you can coast for what feels like an eternity. Another feature that is very useful is the chromoly steel handlebars. They can be extended more than high enough for taller riders. Also the aircraft grade aluminum shaft that steers the reverse style front wheel fork, adds superb stability. And unlike most adult kick-scooters that only have a back foot brake, the Xootr MG also has a BMX style hand brake adding way more braking power, and safety while riding.

You can’t beat the Xootr MG scooters portability

Compared to a Folding Bicycle the Xootr MG scooter is way more portable at only ten pounds. This makes it way easier to carry through stores or on a bus. And there’s also an optional shoulder strap that allows you to set the handlebar height perfectly every time. Just swing the strap over your shoulder and you can carry the Xootr MG scooter for an extended period of time. There’s also a high quality carry bag that you can use to take your Xootr MG scooter on a plane. I remember a video I watched a long time ago where a Military guy would bring his Xootr MG scooter everywhere he traveled. He would commute for twenty miles at a time exploring different cities and countries.

Everyone including celebrities love Xootr MG scooters

When my dad first saw my Xootr MG scooter he was amazed just like everyone else who sees it. Everyone comments on how stylish and well made it is. Originally it was considered the perfect urban transportation solution for college students and urban dwellers. It has since become a huge hit with celebrities like Tommy Chong and business men alike. Even Steve Jobs kept a Xootr MG scooter in his office at all times.

A few days later my dad ordered a Xootr MG scooter from Xootr in the color blue. Now whenever he rides a bus to the Downtown Rochester, NY area he brings his Xootr scooter and uses it to finish off the rest of his commute. Since his Xootr MG scooter arrived his other scooter has been sitting under his bed collecting dust.

What’s commuting on a Xootr MG scooter like?

One day my dad called and wanted to meet for coffee about two miles away. This was my chance to see how truly useful the Xootr MG scooter is for commuting. And I have to say it didn’t disappoint. The low wide deck allowed me to put both feet on it, while also providing efficient kicking. All I had to do was kick a few times and the low friction wheels coasted extremely long.

Upon coming up on a very long bridge this gentleman started crossing it at the same time. By time I got to the other side he was still only a quarter of the was across. When I showed up, my dad looked puzzled over how soon I arrived. Instead of taking forty minutes to get to my destination it only took fifteen. That’s over twice the speed of walking with no extra effort.

Xootr scooter has exceptional customer service

My dad truly loves his Xootr MG scooter and loves to ride it whenever he can. He uses it to go to the stores, meet for lunch and even to go visit his sister. The day we discovered chunks of rubber missing from his front wheel we immediately called Xootr. He was expecting them to give him a hassle over a new wheel. Instead he got the best customer service that I’ve ever seen from a company. The guy on the phone admitted that they had many customers calling with complaints on that batch of wheels. A new front wheel arrived just two days later at his apartment door step.

Not only do you get an exceptionally well made scooter, you also get amazing customer service from a very ethical company. They truly care about their customers and the very reason they’ve been in business for over twenty years. Even though their scooters cost more than the competition I’d highly recommend them, because you’re getting a product that’s definitely built to last. And if it means anything to you, they are manufactured right here in the United States, in Old Forge Pennsylvania.

      Thank you for creating such a great video showing how useful the Xootr MG is for getting around the city and mixing with public transportation. I’d love to keep sharing info with you and hopefully can work together.

  1. Superb piece! Thank you for writing and sharing it. In meaning ways your story is like my Xootr story. I had an idea that it was going to be fun but I had no idea that I would develop such a deep appreciation and attachment to my own Xootr MG. Thanks from Ashland, Oregon!

    1. Thanks for the great comment and the Xootr scooter is the best kick scooter that you can buy, so it’s not surprising that it’s easy to get attached to.

  2. Fantastic and informative review. I am even more confident in my recent purchase of this scooter. I’m excited for its arrival. I was looking into scooters to become more physically active. I am in the process of weight loss and felt this would be a good start. This was the only scooter I felt that could support my weight and assist in achieving my goal. Thanks again!

      Thank you for the kind words and I’m glad you enjoyed the article. The Xootr truly is the best adult scooter you can buy on the market. Just a word of caution, test it out in a traffic free place such as your driveway at first just to get the hang of it. It only takes about ten minutes to adjust but better to adjust somewhere safe, seeing this scooter is surprisingly fast for having such small wheels. Enjoy and stay safe, and don’t forget to keep me posted on how you like it and adventures you go on, which I know will be plenty.
