A guide to buying kick scooters for adults
Kick scooters for adults
It can be very difficult searching for a kick scooter, especially when you're a fully grown adult. I recently bought one for my brother, who had broken his old kids' scooter, and I found it very difficult to find scooters that would take a full adult's weight. Most of the ones I came across had a limit of 50kg (about 110 lbs.). Now, I don't know how reliable these weight limits are; the scooters I found may have been perfectly strong enough and the manufacturers were just covering their backs. However, I didn't want my brother to injure himself falling off a broken scooter I'd bought him, so I did some research and managed to find quite a few on the internet with limits of 100kg (about 220 lbs.), perfect for most adults.
I've listed together many of the ones that I've found here to help other people who would like to get into scootering. It really is fun and makes a great present for birthdays or Christmas.

Razor Pro Model Scooter
A cheaper option than the A5, but this is still a scooter to be reckoned with. Built to withstand the strain of stunts and tricks, the Pro model is made from 100% air-grade metal and had thick foam handles for great grip.
Hudora, Big Wheel RX 205 Scooter
A good looking scooter, its big wheels give a smooth ride and the shoulder strap is neat idea for when you need to carry the scooter around. A bit expensive in the U.S., but a great price in the UK.
I find the Hudora to be the perfect scooter for those who just want a scooter for travel.
Razor Black Label 4.0 Pro Scooter
The Black Label 4.0 Pro really is a top quality scooter. With a CroMoly steel riser Y-bar design and its sleek black finish it looks the part and its superior strength build and top of the range parts means it performs as well as it looks. Yeah, it's expensive, but if you want top quality, you need to pay for it.

Here is my Amazon Astore which I set up with all the scooters I found. I ended up buying the Cox Swain in the end, which doesn't seem to be available via U.S. Amazon.
