HUDORA 230 Big Wheel Kick Scooter

This kick scooter has one our editors choice award for a number of reasons. First it is suitable for smooth, bumpy, and rough roads with its 230 mm wheel on the front and 205 mm wheel on the back with a brake on the back tire.

This is essential for commuting as the road/side walk will not always be smooth and with these big wheels it can handle different terrains with ease.

The German GS Safety 3-Seconds Easy-Folding Mechanism is a single-action mechanism, that makes it really simple to fold down and the carrying strap is the icing on the cake making it easy to take with you on the go.

Second because it has a max weight capacity of 265lbs and the handlebars adjust up to about 3 1/2ft making it ideal for people who are taller than 6 ft. which means it can suit a wide range of people.

Third is that the scooter comes completely assembled and ready to use right out of the box very handy if you hate assembling things by yourself.

Lastly it has an aluminum deck with reinforced wings making it stronger with more support, again this is good if you are a heavy person.

Hudora is a very well-known and renowned brand across Europe and have been succsfully selling for over 14 years and isn’t a shock they have another scooter on our list.

This Hudora 205 scooter comes with two large 205 mm wheels and the handlebars are really soft, which helps reduce the vibrations that come through the handlebars.

It does not include any form of suspension (hence the low price) but the handlebars are a big help in cutting down on the vibrations. The single-action folding mechanism makes it easy to close in one step.

This scooter also features a carrying strap for easy transport(very handy) which is ideal for commuters and when you have finished your ride this scooter comes with a kickstand.

The Xootr kick scooter is the most solid adult kick scooter on our list. The deck  is made of solid magnesium giving the scooter the lightest deck structure. with the board meing made of magnesium it has a maximum weight capacity of 800lbs!

This will definitely suit any rider of any weight which is why it is on our list as the best kick scooter for heavy people.

The scooter has a wide deck which provides comfortable cruising by allowing you to have both feet side by side on the deck unlike  which a lot of other adult kick scooters don’t have.

We really like that you have the option of a handlebar controlled brake and the typical scooter brake on the rear wheel making it the one of the best  we have seen.

It comes fully assembled and is made in the USA.

  • Handlebar Height: 25” to 38”
  • Deck Size: 25” x 7.4”
  • Weight: 10.9 lbs
