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
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!
I love it! I was initially overly ambitious about riding it all the way to work (about 3 miles) I was panting by the time I got to my bus stop (Less than 1 mile). I cannot balance a bicycle so this took some getting used to but practice makes perfect. It is a lot of fun, despite the strange looks form people as I attend to balance, its all worth it. It is quite heavy to carry, however i was just walk with it easier than using the 'trolley' version bit.
I am combining Oxelo with my use of public transport - a marvelous experience. I used it on rather rough surfaces and steep slopes where I was using all the breaks to manage the speed. Navigating The City of Sydney except very densely crowded patches was easy and in the absence of convenient public transport the scooter was always very useful.
I have never fell mostly due to the quality of the product rather than my own prowess. I believe that Oxelo is superior Micro and Razr model of similar class according to my research and observation of others using the latter.
