Most 100 watt and 140 watt electric scooters come with hard, solid rubber wheels. Though these wheels are good for this scooter, people are not told that with a rough road or rough riding surface, the wheels will get chewed up and in time, you will be replacing the wheels on these scooters. These scooters are rated to carry loads of up to 120 lbs, some rate as high as 200 lbs. However, our recommendation for these types of electric scooters would be no more than 60-70 lbs.
To reduce the chance of injury in the case of a fall, consider wearing the same protective gear used by anyone operating a motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle or two-wheeler scooter-a helmet, gloves and knee and elbow pads. The helmet is critical to safe riding and protection from serious head injuries. Always wear an approved helmet that is certified by one of the major helmet approval organizations. It is critical that you wear the chin strap or the helmet may not be there during an accident to help protect you. Wearing a helmet every single time you ride a scooter is very important. Even if you plan on only going a half mile down the road, remember to where your helmet. Although some of the safety rules are obvious, such as always wearing a helmet, and not riding carelessly, other tips should also be considered. ALWAYS use a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads.
For younger children an electric scooter is always a better buy as they are definitely safer, but for young teens who are more responsible and may have outgrown a slower scooter, a gas scooter is probably the way to go.
