While push scooters have been around for ages, three wheel scooters are fairly new on the market. They are loads of fun, but they take a bit of practice to get used to the “frog leg style” of riding. Riders must push the platforms for each leg to move forward, and their speed is dependent upon their own strength and agility. Many adults really like these scooters because they provide an excellent workout.
While there are some push scooters designed with three wheels to provide extra riding stability, these are a good choice for anyone who wants to ride along without doing fancy tricks. But for anyone wanting a little more adventure from their scooter riding experience, the ones with the two legs are the way to go.

Three wheel scooters are available for every age, height, and weight rider. There are distinct advantages to the models with separate foot platforms which require practicing to move them along. The scooters designed for younger children allow for more control and less speed, while the scooters made for older youth and adults are speedier and require more skill to operate.
Consumers can check for construction and dimensions when choosing the right scooter for the right person. Looking for handlebars that are flexible and extendable is one clue that the riders can either use the scooter as they grow up or the scooter can be adjusted to accommodate adult heights. One other key is to look for the construction materials. The foot boards are often durable plastic for the younger, smaller children, while the foot boards for older youth and adults are often made of steel. Manufacturers have produced nice quality scooters which allow for plenty of hours of exercising fun.
