Five of the best scooters for adults
From a fold-up that’s perfect for commuting, to a hybrid built to withstand off-roading
Reminiscent of the Brompton bike, the SwiftyONE MK3 comes in green, blue and black and extends for taller riders up to 6ft 5in. It folds up for commuting, weighs 8.3kg, and has 16-inch pneumatic wheels. It’s not cheap, but it is built to last.
Town7 XL Adult Scooter
Designed for short distances (up to 2km), the Town7 XL is smooth over bumps and easy to steer, with a practical handlebar brake. It’s quick and easy to fold.
Speed classic micro scooter
This may be on the small side for adults, but at just 3.8kg, it is built for speed. It comes with a kickstand so you don’t have to prop it up, and once folded, it has a strap to carry it with.
Osprey Action BMX Scooter
This BMX Scooter hybrid is built to withstand off-roading and long-distance scootering. It has front and rear brakes, oversized tyres and an adjustable handlebar.
EVO Suspension Commuter Scooter
With a simple fold design, front and rear suspension and an adjustable handle height of 91-106cm, this sleek scooter is great for short trips. There’s a front handbrake and a carry strap, plus Halfords offers lifetime safety checks .
