The Swiss-designed maxi has a lean-and-steer mechanism that makes it unique and fun, giving kids the feeling of surfing the sidewalks as they curve and carve. The maxi can be purchased with T-Bar Steering or Pilot stick steering (or both)and both steering mechanisms are available as an accessory purchase if the rider wants to change steering styles at a later date

All scooters and kickboards made by Micro are of modular construction, which means that all parts are replaceable, so the maxi can, almost literally, last forever.

Here’s what one of the owners had to say abou the Maxi Kick Scooter

My son has always had difficulty with balance and the regular Razor scooter has been to difficult for him, basically killing his confidence in riding a scooter. We purchased a mini-kick first for our little girl, but our son was riding it (and he’s really too big). So, we decided to purchase the maxi-kick. He rides it all the time, and the neighborhood kids think it cool.

The design feature that I like best and makes it different from others is the two front wheel “lean and steer” feature and the back wheel brake. This has helped improve his balancing ability. It’s also extremely durable, but light-weight. Although they are expensive, I highly recommend this scooter. It has been a great confidence builder for our son and worth every penny. (A. Rathsack)

    Very intuitive for a young child to learn…. This is one of those great products that no one ever hears about because the Razor line just about has the market cornered. Yes those are less expensive, but if you purchase this maxi kick scooter at the right time for your child (about 3 years or so), it will end up being a very inexpensive toy over time. I paid $130 for this neon pink/black maxi kick scooter, and I figure it should last my three and a half year old another eight years plus…. that’s only $16 dollars a year.The maxi scooter measures 24 in. high at it’s lowest setting and that suits my 41 in. daughter very well. I almost purchased the mini kick, but so glad now that I didn’t since the maxi is adjustable and has a slightly larger platform.I will concede this scooter is made in China just as the Razors are, but the components on the kick line of scooters are much better quality… the wheels, bearings, etc.The steering column does not fold down, but rather locks into place, or is removed…

    I am so pleased that we went with this scooter for our 5yo’s … I am so pleased that we went with this scooter for our 5yo’s birthday gift. We looked at cheaper models, but none of them seemed to measure up in terms of quality or consistent positive customer feedback.This is a well-designed, well-manufactured scooter. This is our 5yo daughter’s first scooter, so we wanted a three-wheeled scooter for extra stability. However, so many models put the double wheels in the back instead of the front. This makes it harder for them to really push themselves along without scraping up their ankles on the back wheels or throwing off their balance to avoid kicking the back wheels. The micro maxi has the double wheels up front, making it very easy for propulsion. The steering is easy for my 5yo to control. It is intuitive – she just leans into the way she wants to go, and it turns with ease. The back break is also a fantastic feature. I didn’t think she would be able to get the hang of the break that quickly, but after just a couple of days, she…
