Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Shox Scooter Review

Tuesday, December 07, 2010 Posted by Dina N

My kids are very active and love going to the park. We bring along bikes, balls, a Frisbee, and can spend hours there. Recently, my daughter got a new scooter, and discovered yet another way to have fun outdoors.

The Shox Scooter comes from Shred Sled, and is the first-ever active shock absorber scooter. The frame is made from steel and aluminum and is very light. The scooter weighs just a little over 7 pounds. The scooter fold compactly and takes no space at all in the trunk or when stored in the garage.

I am no expert on scooters but the Shox Scooter seems very well built. The manufacturer says that unlike traditional scooters, the Shox Scooter’s supreme shocks increase a rider’s speed and air-time, making stunts bigger and better. Since my kids are not in the stunt-making phase yet, I'll take their word for it. The scooter features a metal spring that is intended to absorb impact during jumps and stunts and spring back to increase the rider’s power. I am happy to see that the scooter has a well-working back brake and comfy handles. In addition, the height is adjustable which makes it easier for my kids to share it and use it longer as they grow. A well-made toy that encourages my children to be active and grows with them is a winner in my book.

The Shox Scooter retails at $49.99 and would make a great gift for boys and girls 5 and up. You can pair it up with a Shred Sled Helmet for safety and an added degree of cool.

    I'm a sissy. My daughter split her knee open on in-line skates. Even with safety pads, this is still too dangerous for me.
