Amazing value at the discounted price.
on 2 February 2014
I deliberated long and hard before purchasing this scooter for my 5 year old daughters birthday, keen to avoid dissapointment. I read loads of reviews on Amazon and considered the content very carefully. Like many others she had a Micro Mini which she loved but had outgrown. So the natural progression would have been to the Micro Maxi (£100). However when I saw the iScoot V2 selling at just £45 I though I had to give it serious consideration. My main concerns were comments others had made about the transition from the Micro and the remarks saying that the iScoot V2 was harder to steer? I decided that it was worth the gamble ......
Firstly the package arrived in 3 days which was faster than the delivery I had paid for. I was a little worried when I saw the box as it was slightly damaged and didn't carry any iScoot branding. But that was where my concerns stopped.
Upon opening the box it was clear to me that this scooter was a very well made piece of kit. It was as pictured, except hers has pink hand grips - which in our case was a bonus. The mechanism for raising / lowering the steering column and also adjusting the steering height is very well made. We are unlikely to want to lower the column often so I have secured them very tightly. If they ever do work loose, then they are easily tighten again in a few seconds.
So far she has road tested the scooter on a few school runs, but gave it an extensive test in the skate park this morning. Her review ...... a massive thumbs up !!!! She didn't seem to be phased at all by the increase in weight ( which is the same as the Maxi by the way ) or by any change in the steering resistance. She was zooming around in minutes, even coping with the banked turns at high speed. She even finds it much easier to use the break on this scooter, as it's much wider than on the mini and easier to find with her foot.
Dad's review - the quality and build of this sturdy scooter makes it worthy of consideration even a full price. However at the reduced price I paid it really was a no brainer. If it turns out to be less durable than the Maxi ( which I doubt given the build quality ) then so be it. Hopefully I can get another at the same price. Thoroughly recommend this item.
