Why choose the B1 scooter?
Because of its two front wheels and its unique, patented steering system. This combination was designed in conjunction with a physiotherapist and lets the deck tilt to a precise angle that's safe for children (which means they don't lose their balance when pushing forward or turning). The curved handlebar was designed to improve the child's position. The B1 is an intuitive, easy-to-ride scooter that helps children steer, supports their psychomotor development, and helps them learn.
How does the B1 scooter affect a child's psychomotor development?
To develop their psychomotor skills, your child needs to master their balance, hand, foot and eye coordination, and understand how their body is oriented in space. The three-wheeled B1 scooter has been specially designed with the help of a physiotherapist to make it easier for very young children, aged just 2, to get to grips with these skills and learn while having fun!
How does the B1 scooter work?

This system prevents the child being thrown off balance when pushing forward or turning. The intuitive design even helps children to develop their basic motor skills.

The handlebar can be removed in 1 second and fixed underneath the deck with a rubber strap. This makes the B1 less bulky for when you want to transport or store it at home or in the car.
How are our products tested?
All of our scooters have been lab tested. These tests check compliance with the European standards for scooters and check wear on the scooter. For example, one of our tests involves a machine folding the scooter 10,000 times to check its folding system. As well as lab tests we do field tests - some measured and others based on the testers' opinions - to really put the product through its paces. The result is a tested, proven product.
