There’s no reason for anyone to miss out on all the scooter fun. Here’s a handy guide to help you choose the best scooter for every family member and age group:
12 months +
Looking for your child’s first scooter? Suitable from 12 months to six years, the fully scalable Globber EVO 4-IN-1 and Globber EVO 5-IN-1 will grow with your child and adapt as they develop. Offering pushchair, ride-on and scooter modes with adjustable T-bar, parents will love the clever convertible for its value and long-lasting usage. First time riders will be comfortable with the two adjustable seat heights and handlebar for parents to push. Then as their skills develop, the scooter can be ridden with or without the help of parents pushing the handle bar. As confidence builds, it transforms into the ultimate adventure scooter for growing little ones.
Once youngsters find their love of scooting, they will want to take it everywhere. Suitable for ages three plus, the Globber My FREE Fold Up features an easy-to-use ellipse folding mechanism, ensuring transportation is a breeze. When folded, the compact scooter can easily be stowed or pulled along behind. Or choose something from the new Globber PRIMO range. PRIMO scooters come with assisted steering for safe learning and a button on the front locks the steering so tots can master the straight line and learn to balance before attempting to turn corners. Designed with three handlebar height positions that are a cinch to adjust and are extremely comfortable. Supporting up to 50kg, the reinforced metal plate structure has exceptional strength, making these scooters an excellent choice for young riders.
Kids & Teens
It’s time for your child to get on a big kid scooter. Depending on when your child is ready to switch, some kids may give it a go at four years old and others at six or above, either way, the Globber My Too Fix Up is perfect for those transitioning from a three-wheeled scooter to two-wheels. Packed with loads of features, it’s a super stylish scooter and a smooth ride with non-slip deck, high-rebound wheels, moulded handlebar grips, soft brake and three adjustable height positions. It can handle up to 100kg with the reinforced fixed structure, built tough enough not to wear out before they hit their teens.
If you’re one of those parents who has to run to keep up with your kids on their scooters, it’s time for you to get in on the action. The Globber ONE K series is a smart scooter for grown-ups. It boasts a very cool folding feature; simply kick the mechanism above the front wheel and the scooter folds up in one second flat. It can then be stored away easily or pulled along by the handlebar. With large rebound wheels, front lever hand brake, soft grips and a wide deck, you’ll be gliding around the local park like a pro in no time. Why not take it down to the shops, your favorite cafe or to a friend’s place. Who knows, you might even teach the kids a trick or two!
It’s important for all scooters riders to wear helmets and protective gear such as knee and elbow pads. When purchasing a helmet, it’s crucial to get the right fit. Wrap a tape measure around the circumference and largest portion of the head which is about 1 inch above the eyebrows. Or wrap a piece of ribbon or string around the head, the measure the length of the string. For the best head protection, choose helmets that have accredited labels. Globber Helmets are Australian Bike Standards Approved so they can be safely used on bikes, scooters and other wheeled toys. There’s an easy-to-close magnetic catch that won’t pinch delicate skin under the neck and it comes with a dial-lock size adjustment at the back of the helmet which helps to get just the right fit once on, all you have to do is turn it. Genius!
Now the whole family can scoot with confidence.
