Thank you to Xootr for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.
What do you get for the guy who has it all? Seriously, sometimes it can be really difficult to find cool gifts for the men in my life that haven't already been 'done.' My dad and brother-in-law are particularly hard to buy for. Thankfully, my husband is a pretty active dude, loving the outdoors, and having fun adventures with the family.
Last year, Santa brought our son B a scooter. He has loved riding the scooter, but has often asked to see his daddy riding it. B's scooter is intended for kids, so there's no way his daddy could safely ride on it. Luckily, there's an awesome scooter for adults that'll give B and his dad the opportunity to ride alongside each other and have loads of fun!
Xootr scooters are proudly built and sold by the folks at Xootr LLC. The members of the Xootr team have created products for dozens of great companies including Apple Computer, Hewlett-Packard, and Motorola. We now focus our energies on designing and manufacturing fun, socially and environmentally friendly products for our own company. Unlike some businesses out there, Xootr actually designs and manufactures the products it sells. There's no smoke and mirrors here, just a desire to provide the best possible products and service.
The roots of Xootr go back to 1999, when Karl Ulrich, Nathan Ulrich, and Tom Miner (along with partners Lunar Design and Cheskin Research, and several other investors) founded Nova Cruz Products. Nova Cruz designed, manufactured and sold the Xootr kick scooter, the Xootr eX3 electric scooter, and the Voloci electric motorbike. Each of these products led the industry, redefining the categories in which they competed.
Today, Xootr has a complete line of scooters, perfect for those spur of the moment adventures or getting you where you need to go.
Xootr Scooters come in a large box. They're already assembled, which is amazing!
If I had to put the Xootr together, I would have been in trouble, as I am directionally challenged! The Xootr is already put together, and can be taken out of the box and enjoyed immediately.
They're solid, but not super heavy. Our Xootr weighs around 14 pounds and is light enough for me to carry.
Xootr takes up very little space, making it compact to store at home, at school, or work.
Xootr has a cool line of scooters, and you can select the one that best suits your needs. As I removed the Xootr from the box, I was impressed with the design, and also by how sturdy it was. It's also a very sleek and stylish scooter, making it ideal for adventurers and professionals who are looking for alternative modes of transportation.
The deck of the Mg is solid magnesium (no kidding) providing the lightest deck structure of Xootr's wide-deck models. The Mg has a beautiful, sleek, and modern look. Xootr believes the Xootr Mg is the most advanced push scooter ever made, which is why it is their best selling model. It offers a wide deck which provides comfortable cruising, allowing you to have both feet side by side on the deck unlike other adult kick scooters such as the Razor A5 Lux, Know-Ped, or Micro.
All-magnesium deck for lightweight
Wide platform for comfortable cruising (ride with feet side by side)
Ultra-low-resistance polyurethane tires for a super-efficient glide
Shielded, self-lubricating bearings
Award-winning industrial design by Lunar Design
Patented steering and folding system
Rated as the top kick scooter for adults in 2017
When hubby and I lived in Maryland, just between Baltimore and DC, we were used to seeing folks on bikes and scooters- riding from their homes to the Metro stations or to school or work. There were fewer cars, and more bikes/scooters, etc. We now live in an Historic part of the city (in NC), and love being able to walk/ride to local shops. Xootr will give my guys an opportunity to get out and spend time together, as well as exercise!
Want it? Get it!
