Details

The Maxi Kickboard is the highest rated scooter for ages 5 to 12. Kids love the ride, and you will love the years of fun and exercise it gives, making it one of the best value presents you can buy your child. The smooth gliding Maxi has a curving and carving action that allows kids to surf the sidewalk like a skateboard, with the handlebar providing greater control and maneuverability. Kids use their body weight and handlebar to lean into a turn, resulting in smooth, safe turns. The Micro Maxi has the smoothest, quietest ride available thanks to high quality polyurethane wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck, which together absorb bumps in the sidewalk. Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Maxi is recommended for kids up to 110 lbs. Its exceptionally strong construction is flexible and light weight, making it a great cruising scooter for urban and suburban neighborhoods alike. Many kids use their Micro Maxi to ride the sidewalk to school.

STEERING - Choose between the traditional T-Bar or the Joystick for maximum curving and carving action. The handlebar styles are interchangeable and available as an Accessory, so if you choose the T-Bar to start you can upgrade to the Joystick as skills develop. Both Maxi’s steering sticks extend from 24 in to 34 in above the deck.

SAFETY - For best protection, we recommend that kids wear helmets and knee pads when riding.

AWARDS - Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award Seal and Platinum Seal (2009), Parents Choice Approved (2010), Universal Design Award and Universal Design Consumer Favorite (2009), Red Dot Design Award (2009)

Best Way to get Around
We LOVE the Mini and Maxi Micro scooters!! Best purchase we've made for our kids. We live close to an historic downtown city, and since the age of 2 our children have scooted as their main mode of transportation. We can take them everywhere, and also easily tote them on the trolley ride home when the little ones are tired. We've flown with them as well, from trips to Cape Cod, to trips to Santa Barbara, these scooters have been all over the USA! People ask us about them regularly, as they are amazed at how well, and how responsibly, our children navigate the sometimes busy sidewalks. Our nearly 4 year old will be receiving a new Maxi for his birthday in a few short weeks, and I know he'll be thrilled to have a 'big' scooter like his sister. 5 stars all around!

Perfect gift
This is one of the best gifts I have given my grandchildren. I started with the mini - then moved up to the maxi as they grew up. Now five have a maxi and one has the mini - for now. It is durable and they all love it.

Love These!
We have a Mini Micro and a Maxi Micro and I love them and my kids love them. We're pretty laid back so indoor scootering occurs and these are great for both racing around the house and making a run to the coffee shop or around the lake. Best features are ease of maneuvering and replaceable parts, but that said, we haven't had to replace any parts yet and it's been 4 years.

Your scooters compared to standard scooters are like snowboarding is to skiing. The scooter becomes one with the child and my two year old was amazing.She had no problem keeping up with her 5-year old brother. We have purchased three other scooters since then. First one Maxi Micro then 2 Sprites. Love them all.

We decided to go with the Maxi for our 4 year old and it's perfect! He loves it and so do his little friends. I received a text from his friends mother last night wondering what kind of scooter my son has because his friend went home and told his mom that he needs a MicroKick board too! ??

My son who is now 6 years old loves this scooter. We got him one when he was 3 years old and he rides it all the time. He is getting bigger so I need to go up in size. He refuses to learn how to ride his bike because he loves his scooter so much. His sister how is 9 has this same scooter and they ride together all over our neighborhood. Love the quality and colors.
Jill M on Feb 15, 2016
The Microkick-Maxi was rated very high for the 5-12 year age group. I ordered one for my grand daughter, who is 5, for Christmas and she loved it. It rode nicely, and she was able to balance herself easily with confidence. Her siblings, 4 year old twins also loved it and each wanted one. As the first scooter was such a hit, I promised the twins that I would order them each their own scooters. Now everyone is happy.
Ellen M on Feb 12, 2016
I bought the other brand's scooter which is cheaper than this product just because I wanted to save a couple dollars but it was defected,so I had to go through returning process and it was a hustle,so I ended up buying it off m-cro directry because I knew for a fact that this company is the most trusted company and all my friends kids have this company's scooter.I should have purchased off m-cro directry from the beginning!

BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we normally would recommend the Micro Mini (ages 2-5) for a 3-year-old. The larger Maxi (ages 5-12) weighs a bit more than the Mini and can be more-difficult to steer for riders under the age of 5. Please let us know if you have further questions-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
How to fold?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This scooter does not fold down-- instead, it features a removable handlebar. This allows you to easily store and transport the scooter itself :)
There is a maxi micro with foldable T-bar in blue and pink available on the www.micro.ms website. Why is that one not shown here?
Shilpa K on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We are sold-out of the folding Maxis currently (July 2015) but hope to have them restocked by September 2015. Cheers!
What is the difference between mini and maxi?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2015
Maxi Original
Maxi Original
Mini Original
Mini Original
BEST ANSWER: To choose between the Mini and Maxi, we recommend that you consider the size of the child in addition to their age. The Maxi is designed for children ages 5-12, up to 110 lbs, but may be suitable for a younger child depending on their weight and coordination. The minimum weight requirement for the Maxi is 35 lbs. This in mind, the Mini's lighter weight makes it easier to maneuver and helps build confidence for younger riders.

The Maxi weighs 2 lbs more than the Mini and its deck is 1 inch wider and almost 2 inches longer; this makes the Maxi a little more challenging to control, maneuver, and pick-up when compared to the Mini. The Mini's steering bar is fixed at a height of 24 inches above the deck; the Maxi's steering bar is adjustable from 24 inches up to 36 inches, allowing it to 'grow' with the child.

Please bear in mind that all parts are replaceable on Micro products; thus, when a child outgrows a Mini/Maxi, it can be refreshed as needed to be passed on to a younger sibling or friend. By changing the handle bar grips, deck color, wheels, etc., the scooter can be made "like new." Cheers!
how does one remove the T bar for travel?
Brooke S on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a small red tab located at the very bottom of the scooter's handlebar; this is what allows you to snap the handlebar into (and out of) the scooter base. Simply press in the tab and pull the handlebar out to remove. Cheers!
How do you adjust the handle bars?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To adjust the handlebars, you unlatch the black clamp, adjust to desired height, tighten clamp (if necessary), and then finish by re-latching the black clamp. Cheers!
Promo code?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we do not have any promo codes currently available for the Micro Max (as of 6.8.15). Cheers!
do you have to be a certain height/?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We normally recommend that kiddos are at least 42 inches tall and weigh at least 35 pounds prior to bumping up to the Micro Maxi (ages 5-12). Cheers! --david@microkickboard.com
What is the difference between maxi original and deluxe?
Elle T on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main difference is "cosmetics"-- the Maxi Deluxe has graphics on the deck and an anodized handlebar
T-bar vs joystick... What are the pros and cons?
Ann D on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The T-bar is what we suggest for beginners-- it is more "traditional" and has kiddos' hands spread apart on each grip on the "T." The Joystick is for more-advanced riders and allows kiddos to curve/carve with greater athleticism. Please call us if you would like to chat re: the differences-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
What it the best height to adjust the handle bar to on the scooter? Above the waist, chest high, or above the chest?
Sam M on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Above the child's belly button, about the same height as their rib cage
Is there a way the mini can be converted to a maxi?
divya r on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no means of "converting" a Mini into a Maxi, apologies! The scooters have completely different frames, molds, etc
flashing wheels for maxi?
saandra J on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Maxi does not have flashing wheels. Also, we do not have any accessories for the Maxi's wheels at this juncture (March 2016). Please let us know if you have further questions-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
My daughter is turning 4 but is 43" and 42lbs. Would she be able to handle the Maxi or would the Mini still be better for her, even with her being so close to the mini's weight limit?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathryn, your kiddo is at the "sweet spot" wherein she could go either route. If you are looking to "maximize" your investment, I would go with the larger Maxi. Please call us if you need further help with the decision-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
is there a version for 150# adult
large kid models?
dorothy u on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, this scooter can hold up to 110 pounds and is generally good for riders up to age 12. For heavier/older riders, please refer to our adult scooter section: http://www.microkickboard.com/teen-adult-scooters
Does it have a brake?
Susan R on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has a rear fender brake (hovers over rear wheels). You use your foot to engage the brake
does the steering column turn the wheels?
Carol C on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Carol, the rider uses his/her body weight to "lean to steer" the scooter. You do not literally turn the handlebar like one does on a bicycle or something else with a singular front wheel. This "lean to steer" action is what we like to call surfing the sidewalk, cheers!
Can the micro maxi fit into a normal suitcase after it is disassembled ? What is the dimention after the disassemble flat shape ?
Claire C on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Claire! When disassembled, the Micro Maxi can definitely fit into *checked* luggage. It has the following dimensions when disassembled: 23 inches x 11 inches x 7 inches
Do you use the handle bars or tilt to turn the scooter? I want to know mainly if the base of the scooter tilts?
Julie W on Sep 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You lean to steer this style of kickboard. The handlebar does not literally turn, the rider instead uses his/her body weight to steer the ride; this is similar to how one steers whilst surfing or skateboarding. Cheers!
Is it possible to buy joystick itself later on?
Jordan V on Sep 16, 2015
