Rockboard Scooter Review
My kids are ages 7 and 10, and just like most kids that age, overflowing with energy. We were so excited for the opportunity to review the Rockboard Scooter. You can’t beat 2 for 1’s and this is 2 different scooters in 1 with Dual-Mode quick-release. It goes from your typical kick-off scooter to using advanced “Rockboard Propulsion Technology.” Propulsion is achieved with each rock, wasting zero energy and allowing the scooter to reach up to 10mph.

Out of the box, I first noticed it’s sturdy construction and that it comes fully assembled! Sweetness! 🙂 It’s made of very durable steel and high quality die cast aluminum.
The next thing I noticed was how it was shipped in its folded position. This is an excellent feature for storage. We don’t have a lot of room in our garage so it’s great that this scooter can be folded down and put on a shelf or under a bench.
After getting it ready for use–which was really simple, just a couple pulls and twists of knobs and you’re good to go–we put on our helmets and headed outside.
At first, it’s a little awkward to get it started. The trick is knowing that you have to kick off with your foot in the back and start “rocking” while it’s in motion. You can’t just start pushing back and forth to get going–that motion only keeps you going. This scooter comes with an instruction manual and DVD so don’t worry if you are really having a hard time understanding how it works.
My kids are totally addicted to this thing! It took them all of 8 minutes to get the hang of it and they now fight over it!
Here’s a quick video of my son putting the brakes in action:
The original is for pretty much anyone ages 8 and up. It can hold up to 200 pounds and is adjustable for different heights (36 in – 46.5 in). I had tons of fun on it, but was too embarrassed to post any video… maybe next time. 🙂 But you can see others on the Rockboard Channel.
