Free time: Kickboard Video Guide

So the kickboard combines a skateboard and a scooter to a compact whole. While a conventional scooter is characterized by two wheels and a handlebar, the kickboard always comes with at least three, sometimes four wheels. Another difference concerns the handlebars: Kickboards simply have a knob instead of the normal version. Like a skateboard, the kickboard is also steered by weight shifting. For support, press the knob to the side at the same time. Kickboards are extremely nimble and agile. Because they can be controlled with smaller movements, they require little space for manoeuvring. This is one of the reasons why companions are so highly valued, especially in inner-city areas. But what do you have to consider when buying a kickboard?

When buying a kickboard, it is particularly important to take a closer look at the frame, handlebar or knob, castors and brakes of the models in question. a) The frame: It is the most important component of the sporty vehicle. With a kickboard you can adjust the height of the steering device – but only up to a certain degree. Therefore, tall people should be careful to find a design whose handlebars have the correct basic height. A handlebar that is too low will cause a bad posture (back pain) on the one hand and a limited feeling of balance on the running board on the other. Only when the posture is upright and comfortable and the arms are only slightly flexed will you have the right position on the kickboard.

b) The handlebar (knob): As already mentioned, the handlebar of the kickboard consists of a knob. This should lie well in the hand. Therefore you have to make sure that it has a good grip so that you can’t slip when driving. It is also advantageous if the knob is lightly padded and free of sharp edges. This avoids unnecessary damage when braking or in the event of collisions.

c) The roles: The rollers also influence the quality of the kickboard. They should make a stable impression and run controlled and evenly. Who has the possibility, checks best whether the ball bearings are clean and work as quietly as possible. If this is the case, it is a good quality kickboard. Furthermore, the coating should be analyzed: Very hard rubber is rather unsuitable, as it often produces unpleasant, scratchy noises.

d) The brakes: In contrast to the bicycle, one brake is sufficient for a kickboard. It is mounted on the rear roller and consists of a brake plate, a brake bolt and a brake spring. The spring and plate are held by the bolt to ensure the necessary stability. While the sheet metal acts as the actual braking element, the spring ensures that the sheet metal straightens up again after use and does not block the roller. After purchasing a kickboard, you should therefore test whether the brake returns to its starting position immediately after actuation. It is also important that the brake plate is stable and cannot be bent even by stronger applications (such as emergency braking).

Once the new kickboard has arrived, it wants to be tried out right away. Due to the special control, some people initially have problems harmonizing with the vehicle. In particular, people who as children were often on the road with an ordinary scooter find it difficult at the beginning to apply the special type of movement. Those who are familiar with skateboarding, on the other hand, can use the steering wheel immediately. And for all those who know neither the scooter nor the skateboard feeling, learning the kickboard technique is an exciting challenge like the acquisition of other (sporting) skills, such as swimming, ice skating or cycling in childhood!
