About the Rockboard Mini Scooter
Built for an exciting ride just like the Original, the Rockboard Scooter Mini is a scaled down version made specifically for younger kids weighing up to 90 lbs. Rockboard Scooters offer the versatility of a propel-action scooter with the practicality of a kick model. The genius of the scooter is the advanced Rockboard Propulsion Technology™, a human-powered mechanism that enables kids of all ages to tear up the pavement without the assistance of an electric or gasoline-powered motor. The innovative hybrid scooter combines the drive-chain propulsion of a bicycle with the practicality of a kick-scooter, which can also be folded up for easy storage and transportation, so kids can take their ride anywhere. The Rockboard Scooters are built to last, with an ultra-strong steel box frame and front fork, an ultra-strong deck, and a rear spring-enhanced suspension creates the smoothest ride even on unforgiving surfaces.
