Details

The Flex Air is the only 2-wheel scooter from Micro that features air-filled rubber tires. Designed to be our most comfortable and shock-absorbing ride, it is ideal for riding rough urban sidewalks, unpaved country paths or beachside roads. Micro's other models all feature polyurethane wheels which are known to be smooth-gliding and fast, but more-so on smoother surfaces. The main advantage of the air-filled rubber tires is the way they absorb vibrations on rougher riding surfaces. However, although rubber tires are normally slower than Polyurethane wheels​, some of our Micro friends have reported that switching from Polyurethane wheels to rubber has in fact resulted in a drop in their commute time, by as much as 50%. They were surprised to find they were able to go much faster on the rubber tires, not only because of the extra stability and road-holding, but also because they were able to continue cruising when they encountered rough patches of urban sidewalk, rather than dismount and walk the scooter, which saved a lot of time. So, if your commute features uneven sidewalks, brick or gravel roads, you might want to consider the Micro Flex Air. We love the way the large 200 mm air filled rubber tires grab uneven surfaces and in our opinion the Micro Flex Air is the most comfortable, shock-absorbing ride around.

An integrated back brake system and padded handlebars add to your comfort and control. Maximum rider weight is 220 lbs.

Flex Air brings the fun of riding to sidewalks and roads that were once too rough for rolling.

Please note, this product features pneumatic (air-filled) tires. It is important to fully inflate both tires prior to use. Correct pressure (80PSI) is in the manual and written on each tire.

The Flex Air comes completely assembled, with a patented double-button folding system. To unfold, simply loosen the clamp on the folding mechanism, then push in and hold the 2 buttons on either side of the front wheel. Unfold your scooter and ride.

The two-way kickstand can be kicked forward or back when you're ready to ride. We recommend kicking it forward to ride, so that when you're ready to park, you can use your toe to deploy the stand. It's the cool way to park your ride.

SAFETY - We recommend that riders wear a helmet.

Excellent for Boston / Cambridge sidewalks
I have several Micro kick scooters, including the Micro Black. The Flex Air has become my default scooter in Boston. While the Micro Black is faster, the Flex Air provides a smoother, more comfortable ride and gives me the freedom to navigate through any terrain thanks to the air tires: brick or rougher sidewalks are fun to ride on with the Flex Air.

It is so much fun and you can really cover some territory. I like how collapsable it is- I can stow it under my desk at work!
The only negative thing so far is that the handlebars tend to rotate slightly when traveling in the car and need occassional readjustment.

Wonderful scooter
I've used this scooter for about 2 weeks now and love it. Way more cushy ride and silent. I've taken it out on fire road trail hikes and even had my 3 yr old stand in front of me to speed us along. It does have more resistance with the rubber wheels with xtra weight but it's. It noticeable when it's just me. I can keep up with my kids on their regular razor scooters. It is heavy to carry though. Folds well and has a nice flex when u hit curbs and bumps. Only wish was that the kickstand was better designed. Tends to fall over if not balanced just so. Was considering buying another to replace the kids razors but it's cost prohibitive.

Comfortable ride but slow
Very comfortable ride. Air tires slower than I anticipated. Might plan to buy regular wheels

Smooth but slow
I got this scooter because I wanted a smoother ride. It's definitely a lot smoother but it comes at a price - speed. Even on downhills you can't go fast. I expected some loss of speed but not this much. It also means your pushing harder to get uphill. I haven't tried the Suspension Scooter - maybe that's a better bet for $10 more.

Response from Micro Kickboard
If you find the air-filled wheels too slow, we'd wholeheartedly suggest purchasing polyurethane wheels for your scooter instead. Air-filled tires are designed for maximum traction and comfort whereas poly wheels are designed for maximum speed and rolling distance. Please call us if you have any questions on this-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).

A friend who has one suggested it as I like to scoot along with my daughter who uses her skateboard. I currently have a large razor that's a bit rough and catches on pavement. I have been eyeing her micro and asked about it. I can't wait!

large rubber tires
Chris C on Jun 22, 2017
Just got one for my daughter, I couldn't stop riding it, had to have one for myself. The kid next door had the monster with the fat wheels. The flex air is so much smoother. Great fun, great exercise.
Lloyd P on Jun 18, 2017
We liked the air filled tires and a rear brake. Company also answered all of my questions before my order very quickly.

Air-filled tires & shock absorbing deck
Evgeniy M on May 2, 2017
Air tires make a MUCH smoother ride and provide a sort of "shock" resistance when jumping off curbs etc... which happens alot
Clark H on Mar 30, 2017
Because of the air filled tires. This will be a big relief on the streets of NYC
Anthony M on Mar 21, 2017
because my current scooter does not have air tires
Nadine G on Mar 9, 2017
After speaking with a representative about my options, it was between this and the flex series, but I decided to go with this one because of the tires.
Carlos M N on Jan 25, 2017
So I could Ride along side my little ones. I probably should have bought a 3 wheeler for that purpose; so, I could jump off easier and it will stay standing.

large rubber tires
Chris C on Jun 22, 2017
I'm looking for the best possible scooter for roads that are typical tar roads, so they could have bumps and rocks and stuff. I don't want to go flying off if I hit something small going downhill but also I know you can't guarantee my safety. I need it to be pretty light and fold up as well as be pretty easy to push around. I'm also only 100lbs and just under 5ft tall so... Which scooter would be best for me?
Alyssa R on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This scooter (Flex Air) is the only scooter we offer with rubber, air-filled tires; these tires are similar to what you would find on a bicycle and offer superior traction/grip.

Thus, this scooter is the optimal choice for navigating rough or bumpy terrain. In terms of your height/weight, this scooter would definitely be suitable for you at (likely) a lower height setting. This scooter weighs 10 pounds and indeed folds-up for storage/transport.

The only drawback of this model is that you will not get nearly as much coast or "glide" distance per kick-- the extra traction on the wheels makes for a slower ride when compared to our other scooters with (smooth) polyurethane wheels. Hopefully this insight helps, cheers!
weight?
WCFromNY on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This scooter weighs 10.5 pounds and can hold a rider weighing up to 220 pounds
How much does the Flex Air weigh?
Paulie on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 10 pounds
Could I swap out this scooter with regular Micro tires? I feel like it takes quite a bit of energy to go distances with these tires. I might be a bit to close to the max weight limit. I'm 200 lbs.
Gino B on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Gino, yes-- you can definitely swap out your tires and replace them with polyurethane wheels. Here is a link to the poly wheels on our site: http://www.microkickboard.com/200mm-polyurethane-wheel
What happens if you get a flat tire, how do you fix it?
Rick T on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we offer replacement 200mm air-filled tires on our website with free shipping. Here's a link: http://www.microkickboard.com/200mm-air-filled-wheel

Cheers!
I saw a review that mentioned a 'brake button', a specific spot on the fender you have to find with your foot. Is that correct?
M A on Sep 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Older models featured the button brake. However, as of 2016, all versions of flex feature the updated "fender brake"-- very easy to engage
Is this a good choice if your commute features inclement weather?
RobMn on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: None of our scooters are appropriate for use in inclement weather-- safety first. That said, this scooters rubber, air-filled tires do offer superior traction/grip and can also help mitigate vibrations whilst out and about. These benefits come at a sacrifice of rolling distance and speed-- you will have to pedal more on a Flex Air when compared to any other scooter with polyurethane wheels
Will the pneumatic tires on the flex scooter work on decomposed granite pathway?
Mary F on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: While an air-filled tire will perform better on this type of riding surface when compared to a polyurethane tire, we would not recommend using any of our scooters on decomposed granite-- the riding surface is simply too unforgiving on the scooter rider's body (vibrations and traction)
I just bought a Fuzion kick scooter. I would like to replace the poly tire with pneumatic tires do you sell just your tires and would they fit on my Fuzion?
Bob the Cat on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As our wheels are produced solely for use with Micro-brand scooters, we do not believe that the wheels will work with your Fuzion-brand product. We can only guarantee compatibility with certain *Micro-brand* scooters
What are the deciding factors between this and the Flex Air? The cost and benefits are similar.
Yih L on Nov 24, 2016
Flex Air
Flex Air
Suspension Scooter
Suspension Scooter
BEST ANSWER: Key difference = the tires (wheels)

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
why don't you have handbrakes? can handbrakes be added?
iFlip on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi George, we don't believe in handbrakes as they are the cause of thousands of "front-facing" crashes and collisions on scooters-- we instead recommend the rear foot brake which is much safer and still works quite well
Under specs, Why is Length provided in 'storage and travel' shorter than length and width? Does storage and travel exclude length added by front wheel?
WCFromNY on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When the scooter is folded-down, it takes up less space (front to back) when compared to an unfolded/upright scooter. The reason for this: The front wheel is 8 inches tall, about 7 inches of the wheel is brought "backward" when you fold-down the model =)
How much does it weigh?
WCFromNY on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This scooter weighs 10 pounds =)
