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
We tried this model in-store and chose this over the other models mostly because of the brake that's on the handlebar. It's easy to operate and it's a little more intuitive than stamping your foot on the rear wheel.
The scooter glides smoothly over tarmac and can cope with a little tough terrain but gets stuck quite easily on grass or softer surfaces.
The folding feature is easy to operate and it's easy to carry albeit a little on the heavy side.
All in all, we've been happy with this scooter, it's more fun than we first imagined!
This in my mind is the best scooter around. I've had a couple of Town 9 scooters - the older versions, and are very low maintenance, mainly replacing wheel bearings which is quite simple.
it's a good scooter but the suspension it's not like that soft like it was when i test it at Shop . every little hole you feel . and in rain it's very dangerous .
The engineering of the scooter is excellent. Consideration to the balance, smoothness of the ride, ergonomics and style play a major part in the satisfaction of the purchase.
Having purchased the scooter for my London commute from underground tube to the office I found that I did not eventually use the scooter and it remained unused for 11 months. Only having recently taken to using the scooter for local home journeys I have discovered and failing in the carry strap used to put over the shoulder. The steel spring clasps at each end of the strap have started to fail, the clasps bending open resulting in the spring clip slipping out of the jaw of the clasp. Also one of the spring load clasps has fractured.
Despite the purchase being made 13 months ago and now outside of the 12 month warranty the actual use of the scooter only commenced 4 weeks ago.
I give the scooter a rating of 10/10 despite the accessory carry strap failing.
Fast delivery and ready to go from the box. Took some time getting used to riding a scooter, but the added benefit of the hand brake was great. Collapses down easily and not an issue on the train. All round good fun.
We purchased 2 x Oxelo Adult scooters for our holiday at Centerparcs. My 14 year old daughter will use one along with my wife. They are strong, sturdy and easy to fold up and open too. I would definitely recommend these scooters.
Good for not rainy days
