Today, we’re going to take a look at something a little different from regular electric scooters. Today’s review includes the best ‘3 wheel’ electric scooters for everyone, including small children, teens, adults, and seniors currently available in 2020.

Three-wheeled electric scooters are becoming increasingly popular, for several reasons, firstly because they add a level of extra stability, making it easier for small children to learn to ride and maneuver compared with two-wheeled scooters.

 For teens and adults, their funky hi-tech design is such that they can enjoy the thrill of riding an electric scooter while being more stable. For seniors and for those who are not too mobile, three-wheeled electric scooters can provide newfound freedom and independence.

Why choose a three-wheeled scooter as opposed to a traditional two-wheel scooter?

  • On rainy days and wet ground, the three-point structure increases the stability and friction with the ground, which leads to a more stable and safer riding experience.

 

  • When cornering, the three-point supporting wheels provide riders with anti-skid function, which makes cornering, and a quick turn much smoother and safer, which two-wheel scooters cannot.

  • On the uneven road surface, the two front wheels work independently. So while one wheel goes over a bump or an obstacle, the other wheel stays on the flat ground, which makes the riding smooth, and stable.

 

  • Because of the double independent front wheels, riders can easily swerve in and out, which helps to avoid obstacles or collisions and they can also be enjoyed like a freestyle scooter for fun.

 

For Seniors and staying mobile
