First impression this is my first scooter so I don't have enough background on the many types but with first impression it is well built. I can feel that it is made to be sturdy enough to take on the normal streets and sidewalks. It was easy to assemble. Just be careful to check all screws and make sure it is tight because the teal one I bought for my son the front wheel was loose. But it was a easy fix just tighten the screws and make sure everything is in working order. The bell is super cute too I really like that feature. I took it for a quick spin around my neighborhood just to make sure it was working well. The shocks are good over bumps and the large wheels helps go over the uneven pavements. I am a adult 5'1 170lbs and it is the perfect size for me. It can go up taller so I think it can handle a 6ft tall person as well. I choose the scooter because it is easy to control and burns alot more calories than a bike. I will be riding it more and will update on how it performs at the park. It was surprisingly a large scooter I thought it'd be smaller like the little kiddie ones but no it's made to be ridden by all ages. I like how it is sleek and the design is not too flashy or childish. This is a scooter I wouldn't mind taking with me when I go to the bay area on my travels too!
