Zycom – Kick Scooters for Kids

3 Wheel scooters for kids are very popular due to their stability and ease to ride.  Most young kids and toddlers learn to ride a 3-wheel scooter first prior to advancing onto the more common 2 wheel versions.  As kick scooters continue to increase in popularity, I am seeing more and more 3 wheel scooters offered beyond the entry level ones for young kids.  Zycom scooters, a company closely associated with Madd Gear Sports; the maker of high end pro scooters, focuses on 3 wheel kick scooters for toddlers up through adults.  In addition to their line of scooters, they also have balance bikes. I’ll get into all the models they offer and where you can find them and what ages they are appropriate for.

Zykster (Toddler Scooter for 18 months to 36 months)

zykster

The Zykster is for the littlest of riders and is unique in that it starts as a scoot-along and converts to a 3 wheel scooter.  The 3 wheel design with polyurethane wheels, large foot deck and mushroom end hand grip ends make this for a safe first scooter. Features an easily adjustable know to convert from scoot along bike to scooter.

Zing (Kid Scooter for 3 to 5 year olds)

zycom-zing-scooter

The Zing is for the kids who are starting to get the hang of scootering and are continually growing their balance and motor skills. In contrast to the Zykster, the scooter is made to go a little faster and is now equipped with a rear brake that works when the rider depresses it with their foot.  Brakes on scooters for kids in this age range are essential because they are starting to get more comfortable riding fast and cruise down steeper slopes. The handlebar is adjustable to to three heights and also folds flat for transport or to tuck under your bed. We are a big fan of the hard polyurethane wheels because they are so durable and last a long time.

Cruz (Kid Scooter for 5 year olds and up)

zycom-cruz-scooter

Our favorite from Zycom scooters is the Cruz.  At first site the scooter looks odd because of the outward sweeping handlebars. Once you ride it though you understand why; it provides much more clearance for the children’s legs especially when they are bent at the knee. The handlebar put the grips where you want them for optimal control but keeps the upright stem out of the way. the Cruz is built for bigger kids and has an increased weight capacity of 143 lbs and features strong 125 mm polyurethane wheels.  The 125 mm refers to the wheel diameter; which are slightly larger than the 110 mm wheels commonly used on pro style scooters.
