Imagine you have to do most of your traveling in short distances but you’re still pressed for time, like say from one end of a huge campus to the other. If you drive to school, it probably wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense to bring your bike with you even if it’s to cut down on traveling time. So you just book it from one end to the other lugging heavy texts or expensive equipment that replaces the heavy text and you get to start your next class tired or perturbed. Or, let’s say you do bring a bicycle with you! Hopefully your car can accommodate the rack or maybe you’ve purchased a bike to fit the racks available. Then you lose time trying to find a safe place to put it or even drive it while on campus.

Cruise'n' Town, Just Xootr'n' Around

Worry not, my friends! Xootr is an adult scooter that was designed for ease of use and portability. The Xootr MG is made of solid magnesium, cutting the product weight down to 10 lbs, and the team of engineers made a few slick changes to their pin and place methods- making tucking the scooter away more efficient and (with practice) basically hands-free! Not only is the Xooter highly efficient in space management, this will surely cut down your travel time with their  self-lubricating bearings, making for fast anti-friction wheels.

  1. This looks great! We rely too much on cars and it’s wonderful to see other urban commuting options becoming more popular.

  2. What more could you ask for in a scooter, this is awesome. I’d have to fight for my chance with my kids I’m sure.

  3. I am trying to walk more for my resolution this year, and this would help me!! It would at least give me some exercise. I would LOVE to ride this. I am actually going to start school in a couple of months and I am amazed at how lightweight this is! Sounds awesome to me!

    1. The item was definitely as described! It’s lighter than my 3 month old (lol) and is actually super quiet when you’re riding it- I even zipped around in the living and dining room a little bit undetected (sorry Libby!)

  4. I’d love to buy this scooter for my son. I like that it is foldable for storage and the weight limit is generous so he can still use it as he grows.

  5. Oh this is something that I would love to do with our little one. He loves to scooter around the block and down to the park…I would love to scooter right along with him!

  6. How awesome!! My son and I could scoot together!! We love exploring our town and this would be the perfect way to get around <3

  7. This would be such a blessing. We moved to the country in a super small town where everything is behind a cple years . We have lots of parks and sidewalks. I actually quit driving about 2 years ago bc I started getting panic attacks behind the wheel. My granddaughter who lives too far away has a scooter and I rode it over the summer and the joke was that should be my new car. I’m more than ok with that

  8. Looks pretty fun. I want to get into running a d i think this could be the first step. If I could only win the chase over it with my kids.

  9. I bet this would be a lot of fun at the park. So neat and fun to play all spring and summer long. Stay outdoors and get extra active this year

  12. Great looking scooter, and it looks very solidly constructed. I really like how lightweight and compact it is. My nephew would love to have one of these.

  13. My kids would live this scooter and it being foldable would make it easier to take to the park. I live the fact that it has a front brake with a bmx bike style brake handle and a back brake is available.

  14. This looks like a blast. My ten year old son has been asking for a scooter. I love it has the higher weight limit so it lasts and even his dad and I could take it for a spin.

  15. I love the feature that it folds up for easy storage. Great for family camping trips and fun for the whole family.

  16. I would love this for my daughter! She had one when she was little and out grew it. This looks like it’s perfect for adults too!
