So, I went in search of a foot scooter. I didn't like the razors and found most of them too small. And since I'd be on the sometimes unever road and sidewalks, I needed a larger wheel what would go over some rough ground at times.
Anyways, the minute I got it, I found it folds in two, which makes it real easy to take into the stores with me. And I just love the ride. I take it to the 7-11 instead of my car. And because I park my car far away at times, I just scooter back home. In fact, I just love getting up and riding it back to my car. it's so cool, I want to find a way to find more time to use it. it's just too cool.
Pros: It has the handle brake in addition to the back foot brake. It has nice big wheels that will go over the rough ground in my alley. Just perfect size for an adult. And has a nice size foot pad to stand on. Goes fast and glides great.
Cons: I really don't have a con. It is not the imported foot scooter I had as a child with large nuematic wheels-which really allows you to ride on everything. But that was imported from holland and very expensive. From everything I researched before I bought this one, I found this to be the best around.
I'm so glad I bought it and by the way, the next day I felt a bit sore which was perfect. It means I got a bit of a workout from riding it-which is what i wanted. And it's helping me with my balance as well.
Compared to Xootr:
-Smoother ride (Wider wheels)
-Handle extension is easier to use and more solid
-Bigger and Heavier
I had a Xootr scooter for about a year and a half. I really enjoyed it for the first year. Unfortunately, in the second year things started to break one by one. First, the telescoping handle stopped going down all the way. Then the brakes completely wore out. Finally, the connection between the handle and shaft became loose. After that, I started looking for a more durable replacement.
I tend to put about 3 miles each day on the scooter. I also travel in all weather conditions (which includes snow and rain). I travel in Chicago, which has a variety of grates, bridges, and other obstacles.
The Know-Ped has been much better than I could've hoped. The ride is much smoother because of the width of the wheels. I never noticed how much I felt the ground on my Xootr until I rode the Know-Ped. The handle extension is very slick and IMHO, much more solid than Xootr's. The Xootr handle would occasionally fall while riding. This progressively got worse over time. The Know-Ped just doesn't have that problem with their design.
The Know-Ped is significantly bulkier and heavier than I expected. The width of the deck can be problematic at times. Also, the collapsed height is higher than I expected. Overall, I find myself missing the compactness of the Xootr, but the smoother ride and better handle are worth the extra weight and size.
I am a college aged female and I first got this scooter because I was tired of walking to class in the heat and wanted to get there quicker. I like to "kick" really fast (alternating the leg I kick with) so I get everywhere faster, but it also keeps me feeling cooler because of the wind blowing in my face from going faster. I was about 5-10 pounds over my ideal weight, mainly around my belly and legs, but after using this scooter every weekday to and from class, going as fast as I could kick to get going, it got me in shape. It works out my abs and left me looking trim at the waist. I lost a solid 5 pounds and was now fit and in shape. My abs and legs were trim and tone. I never had time to exercise before and hate the boring gym work-outs, but riding the scooter was my workout. I don't have to set time aside just to exercise, because I get the simple 5-10 minute exercise while "scooting" way to class. Exercising on the way to class and back is easy and doesn't add time to my schedule.Read more ›

It's amazing at the beginning. It's worth it after 1 year of riding. The board broke for me after 2 years -- not bad.Published 6 months ago by Damon W.
