The Micro Sprite is our highest rated 2 wheel scooter for ages 8 and up. It offers a lot of Micro quality and style for a great price. With its cool colors and fantastically smooth glide, the Sprite is everyone's favorite – from middle school students to moms and commuters. The Sprite is strong and lightweight, only 5.5 lbs, with an adjustable height handle bar that extends 34″ above the deck (37″ above the ground) and a maximum rider load of 220 lbs. It's also a great travel and commuter scooter – it can be folded up quickly and easily for carrying or storing away, and the built-in kickstand allows quick upright “parking.” For daily use, the Sprite is ideal for young teens or lighter weight adults. For special occasions and for travel, an adult of up to 220 lbs can be comfortable on the Sprite – it's a great way to roll on a family trip and a cinch to carry around. We would direct larger adults to the Micro White or Black, or the Flex Blue. The Sprite 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 strongly recommend that riders wear a helmet.
