- Q & A
An innovative new scooter from Micro designed for commuters, the Suspension scooter is ideal for urban sidewalks. The patented suspension system absorbs the bumps, making it perfect for long rides on uneven surfaces. The front and back suspension work together to isolate the rider from shocks and vibrations; you float over the bumps. Robust construction makes the Micro Suspension suitable for heavier riders, but still light enough to be easily carried, while the metallic bronze finish means you arrive at work in style. Fold and put under your desk for the commute home. An adjustable handlebar accommodates tall adults.
This is one smooth operator - say goodbye to shake and rattle - and roll in comfort.

We rode this all over sidewalks and driveway cracks and it was such a smooth ride. My son says it's feels like you're scootering on air.
For an older teen or adult this is the way to go!!
I fold up the scooter and it fits on the luggage rack of the train. There's a bungie cord running inside the handles connecting the endcaps, so I pull one out and wrap it around a bar on the rack to secure the scooter. Conductors have never given me a hard time about it (full size bikes are not allowed during rush hour, and I've occasionally seen guys with folding bikes get scolded). It also fits on the floor of the back seat in my vehicle.
I ride in sun, rain, snow and cold. The only issues I've had is slush will cake around the front fender (but you still go), ice makes it hard to push with your kicking leg (but the scooter still goes), and after about 10 minutes in -5 degrees or lower the steering gets a little stiff (but it still goes).
One complaint is that it squeaks sometimes when stepping onto it, probably because of the shocks, I'm guessing. It's worth it. Makes my commute 3x faster.

The back fender works great as a brake, I'm glad I ordered it.

Without knowing your daughter's height/weight, I would normally suggest the Micro White for her (rather than the Suspension). I suspect that the Suspension would simply be "too much scooter," if that makes sense. If you would like to further discuss, please give us a call-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). Cheers!
Other things to check are the wheels-- rotate/replace as needed-- and the brake. Thankfully, all of the parts on a Micro-brand scooter are replaceable due to the modular design. Cheers!
The Flex Air features rubber, air-filled tires-- these offer superior traction and grip but come at a notable sacrifice of speed and rolling distance. Air-filled tires also absorb vibrations more than our standard wheels (though they are "slower")
The Suspension features our traditional 200mm poly (polyurethane) wheels that are fast, smooth, and offer optimal gliding distance. They will not offer as much traction or vibration absorption but are notably faster than 200mm air-filled wheels. Also, the Suspension is our only model that features suspension in the front/rear, this makes for a cushy, comfortable ride
