The Story of Mibo Scooters USA
Over the years, my children have ridden varying types of kick scooters - Razors, Micros, etc. Unfortunately, none have been sized (or built sturdy enough) for a 6' 3" adult - believe me...I've tried!
Before my 42nd birthday, I reminisced of my sturdy steel-framed Mongoose scooter that I spent countless hours riding as a kid. My wife was listening and secretly found the best available option - an "adult" size Razor which I excitedly unwrapped for my birthday. Now I could ride with the kids up and down the street!
After checking and double-checking the folding/locking mechanism against the instructions, I donned my helmet and immediately went for a test ride. (Note: I happen to live on one of the few hilly streets in my neighborhood and often find skateboarders and bikers experiencing the minor thrill of our hill!)
Before I could make a full round trip up and down the block, the lock on the folding mechanism broke loose as I pushed, sending me sprawling (and scraping) on the asphalt surface. I learned firsthand what I've now heard numerous other adults tell me after seeing my Mibo...other scooters are just not made well (or big) enough for adults.
That spawned a lot of late night research for the best scooters on the planet. I searched for scooters made for all ages, but particularly suitable (and sturdy enough) for all sizes and shapes of adults.
Mibo Scooters s.r.o. is a nearly 20-year old scooter manufacturer headquartered in the Czech Republic that designs and builds high quality and very well-equipped steel frame scooters. Mibo Scooters are hand-crafted in relatively small volumes with locally sourced steel and equipped with high-quality component parts. In fact, Mibos are so durable (and fast) that Mibo racing has become an alternative sport in parts of Europe - frequently over long distances and rugged terrain.
It was a little challenging to get my first Mibo to the USA but I did it with the help of the kind and capable folks at Steptrading in the Netherlands (now our distribution partner).
Everywhere I went on my Mibo, people stopped me to ask questions and take a closer look.
"What is that?"
"That is so cool!"
"Where did you get that?"
"Where can I buy one of those?"
