Folding adult kick scooters have never been more popular.

Picking your first folding adult kick scooter is not an easy decision, especially when you do it online. We decide to take a range of folding kick scooters on a trip out of  London. We wanted to really put them to the test and see how easy they would be to fold fold and see whether they would fit in a car boot or on commuter train.

There are many different brands offering folding adult scooters – and what might be the perfect option for one may be the worst for another. Key variations can be found in the wheel size, folding mechanism, weight and price. 

Here at OP Scooters we are friendly and knowledgeable, and we will work at your speed, show you how different parts work, allow you to do a test rides and take the time to properly set up the kick scooter.  We can help you with a maintenance and what accessories you should think about.

Our professional advice is that you should avoid purchasing really cheap folders (for approximately under £100 as they are a waste of money and can be dangerous as well.

We recommend to spend time to do some research and some test rides before you order some.
