- Q & A
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)

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!
The scooter otherwise does not come with both handlebars. That said, you can always order the opposite style of handlebar (separately) here: http://www.microkickboard.com/replacement-parts/maxi-kick-scooter-parts
