What safety precautions should you take with the MID 7 scooter?
Like with skateboarding and skating, you should wear protective equipment (helmet, knee pads and elbow pads) to stay safe when scootering. We also recommend checking your scooter before and after each ride to ensure that there is no abnormal play and no cracks or sharp edges. The wheels and bearings are wearing parts. Remember to check them and change them if necessary.

The MID 7 has been designed for journeys of up to 2 km. For longer journeys, you'll want a scooter with more features such as bigger wheels. In terms of the maximum load, it can be used by anyone weighing up to 100kg.
Will my trousers get muddy/wet from splashes in wet weather?
Not exactly, a rear mudguard protects against splashes in wet weather.
How are our products tested?
All of our scooters have been lab tested. These tests check compliance with the European standards for scooters, as well as looking for wear. For example, one of our tests involves a machine folding the scooter 10,000 times to check its folding system. As well as lab tests we do field tests - some measured and others based on the testers' opinions - to really put the product through its paces. The result is a tested, proven product.
