Bought it to ride to work as I cannot ride a bike. It is fantastic - very quick and great fun. The exercise element is surprisingly good.
Great quality, sturdy scooter.
Excellent prompt service.
I bought this scooter to replace a previous scooter from another company I'd had for several years before leaving it on the train so that's my point of comparison for this scooter. So far I'm really pleased. Trolley mode is incredibly useful, as is the carry strap which came with it and which fixes on really easily. This means that even though it's bigger than my previous scooter it's much easier to carry when not riding. It's easy to trolley around stations and carry on escalators and up and down stairs. The folding system is fantastic and it's really useful to be able to lock it using a padlock. It rides smoothly and the brakes work well in the dry but are not so reliable in the wet (but this seems to be the case with all scooters). The only thing I miss is a kickstand but I do appreciate the little things such as the reflectors on the back and the way the large handle ends balance against walls etc very easily if you want to lean it for a moment. I find it fun and practical.
I have had several different brands scooter as i has some distance to travel from train to office and this one has been the best by far, not sure how long it will last but as its a great price definitely worth the money.
i would highly recommend one!
What an excellent scooter I’m a mature adult and I love it, the breaks are good the scooter is really sturdy and easy to ride. This scooter folds down so it handy to pop in the boot of the car and take anywhere.
The only thing I would like to see added to this scooter is a stand
I recently changed jobs and didn't much fancy having to use London Underground everyday, so decided to buy one and over the course of 5 weeks, the scooter has paid for itself!
Quick and easy to open & close the trigger mechanism is perfect!
It folds up and is able to fit in the luggage rack on my train, or even under my seat if necessary.
The main stalk of the handlebars is just right to be able to hold bike lights (which I've now fitted for winter use)
I use a combination of road and pavements as I've found that works better in rush hour. You're not legally required to use the road as it doesn't have gears, but the road can be the easier option sometimes.
I can squeeze through gaps that not even bikes can manage, and found that I was pretty much quicker than the underground train covering the distance I need to!! Not bad huh?!
The brakes are not that good in the wet, but you have to use common sense! Slow it down a bit and look ahead...always. Also the wheels can be a bit jittery in the wet. London isn't exactly nice flat pavements everywhere and I've actually come off due to the wheel slipping on a raised paving stone.
My only criticism is that it would be nice to have the option of wheels like the Oxelo Dirt has.
Other than that, this is an excellent bit of kit.
I had an issue with the 1st one I bought and the staff member at Decathlon Lakeside couldn't have been more helpful.
Bought this with high hopes.after using it for a 1 mile commute on mainly low declines. Any kind of speed and the thing rattles and wobbles,it doesn't feel safe and the back break is almost pointless. Lots of strange noises. Doesn't feel safe. The folding mechanism is rubbish as you have to whack the plastic lock down which damages and grinds it right down. Why they couldn't use metal I don't know. I've thrown the box, had I have known I wouldn't have bought it and invested the money in a city bike. Can't get to Crawley often so stick with it. Last purchase I'll make from decathlon

I saw so many older people using scooters in Europe so when I returned to Australia I decided to buy one. I am a 65 year old man in reasonable health. I am still working part time and thought that using the scooter to get to the ferry to go to work would be good exercise. I now peddle 2km to work. My co-workers thought I was crazy...but I love it.
The scooter is really well made and so easy to use and store. I love it
Have owned my Oxelo 9 Town for nearly a year and use it to/from station (nearly a mile each way) most days, all on pavements. Enjoyed hugely at first but now it's beginning to fall apart, despite efforts to screw the scooter back together. Also stopped folding in half so couldn't be stood whilst opening front door and can only secure it with padlock round brake cable. Decathlon weren't interested so doubt I'd bother with another.
Very Good scooters for my son
