#Giveaway The Aero Scooter by Flybar: A Sweet Ride

When you have long winters like we do (and we do have really long ones!), summers tend to be spent outdoors as much as possible. As far as our kids are concerned, it doesn’t matter if they are on two feet or two wheels, as long as they are out in the open, they are happy. Given that they do outgrow so many of their clothes and toys every year, we have been in the market for a new bike and scooter for our 7-yr old. As luck would have it, the good folks at Flybar have come out with their 2-wheel first scooter, the Aero Scooter, this year and asked us to test one out. Flybar has been around since 1918 (Happy 100th Anniversary!) and is known for being the original Pogo Stick company, so they know their way around making products for kids.


Even before the box was opened there was evident excitement about the scooter from both our boys, i.e. the packaging is pretty nifty and is bound to be a magnet for most kids. The unpacking and assembly of the scooter took barely 5 minutes and it was ready for inspection and trial. Flybar has done a great job in choosing vibrant colors and designs and that does make it stand out from many plain-looking competitors out there. The three color choices are pink, orange and blue (the one we choose). The construction looks and feels very sturdy, with the frame being steel and the deck supported by a steel composite. The Aero claims a maximum weight limit of 175 lbs (compared to about 145 lb limit of our previous kick scooter), so the scooter can potentially handle ‘big’ kids too (at least wait until the kids have gone to bed though!). The scooter was designed for kids 5 and older, so the handlebar easily adjusts from 27.5 to 32 inches. making it easily transferable from one kid to another (if you can pry it out of their hands first, that is). It seemed it was most comfortable for our 7 year old son to have the handlebars between his hips and waist, so that might help you determine if it might be a good fit for your child. The standing board has a grit tape on it to minimize any slippage, along with a cool design pattern. The light up wheels add a definite wow factor for the kids. A prominent brake in the back is pretty standard for these kinds of scooters but the Aero brake does seem to be more pronounced than many others we have seen. We are hopeful we can finally teach our son to use the brake vs wearing down the soles of his shoes!

In addition to the good looks, the Aero has a pretty sweet ride as well. The sturdy construction and larger wheels offer a relatively smoother ride and easy maneuverability. Our 7-yr old was zipping around on it in no time and liked it so much that we had to take it along on a picnic in a nearby park as well. We were impressed that the park’s uneven paths didn’t seem to slow him down much on this scooter. The grownups squeezed in a short ride (ok, the ones that were under the max weight limit, that is!) and we were pleasantly surprised that it was even pretty comfortable to balance the Aero across a shoulder when it was sidelined on some of the rocky hiking trails. We totally expect the Aero scooter to be part of our kids’ riding collection for a while, tough enough to survive the transition from the oldest to the youngest with flying colors. And of course, to make sure your littles have fun and stay safe while they are learning new skills, don’t forget to make sure you have all the recommended protective gear: helmet and elbow, knee and wrist pads.


To make this summer more memorable , we have partnered with Flybar to offer our fabulous readers a chance to win an Aero Scooter in the color of their choice:
