Have you ever been late to class? Beaten down from yet another all-nighter, only to trudge all the way across campus for your 7am class? Never again! Xootr kick scooters are your lightweight, foldable and fast solution to get around campus. They’ve been featured in TV shows, movies, and stowed under tables at coffee shops around the world. Easy to ride and easy to store, Xootr gets you from one place to another quickly and with ease. What makes a Xootr kick scooter so special though?

A team that normally designs racecars designed the Xootr scooter, making it one of the most innovative scooter brands on the market. The Xootr has ultra-glide polyurethane tires running on nearly frictionless bearings. These wheels give the Xootr the lowest rolling resistance of any small-wheeled vehicle. The glide is several times better than in-line skates, skateboards, and pneumatic-tired portable scooters. The steering geometry (camber, trail, wheelbase, etc.) was optimized for quick, yet stable handling. Because of our superior wheels, you will not spend all of your time kicking. You will be able to kick and “cruise”. Unlike all the other adult kick scooters out there, ours is the only one meant for real adult feet. Many of our decks are wide enough for two adult sized feet to be side by side when cruising and all are long enough to have both feet on the deck goofy-style. Normally jaded Silicon Valley engineers have even described the Xootr kick scooter as “a work of art.”

So why use a kick scooter? Scooters are really fun. There is something liberating and fundamental about denying friction with two wheels and a platform. Two people can comfortably ride kick scooters side by side on a walkway and carry on a conversation. They work well in crowds at low speeds, enabling a rider to navigate a crowded street or campus path. Kick scooters are great for just hanging out, scooting from the cafe to the dorm to the dining hall. In most settings, a kick scooter beats a bike door to door for trips of up to 3/4 mile. Xootr has designed 6 different kick scooters for all different kinds of riders. Kick scooters are the green solution for campus travel, so don’t waste anymore time walking. See why Xootr kick scooters have been called the “Rolls Royce” of  kick scooters and arrive to class on time and in style!
