Who is the MID 9 scooter designed for?
For all teenagers measuring between 1.25m and 1.75m, and weighing up to 100kg. So plenty of people! You can adjust the height of the MID 9 scooter. It's also kitted out for short rides in town (journeys of up to 2 km).
For longer or more regular journeys, we recommend scooters from the adult range.
Is the MID 9 scooter suitable for town?
Getting around on a scooter is faster and more fun than walking. The MID 9 is kitted out for comfort: front and rear mudguards to protect from splashes in wet weather, brake on the handlebar, suspension, and large wheels (175 mm) to get past small obstacles in town.
What about if it rains?
The MID 9 scooter has suspension and a front and rear mudguard to protect you from splashes in wet weather.
What safety precautions should you take?
You should always wear protective equipment (helmet, knee pads and elbow pads) when scootering.
Most serious accidents take place during the first few months of use: spend time learning the basics so that you can control your speed and brake in emergency situations in all weather conditions (particularly on wet terrain, always make sure to use your foot brake).
The scooter complies with EN 14619. What does the standard cover?
The EN 14619 standard defines the safety requirements and test methods for roller sports equipment.
How should you maintain your scooter?
Check the condition of your scooter before and after each use, as well as its ability to brake properly, and make sure there is no abnormal play, cracks, or sharp edges.
The wheels and bearings are parts that wear out. Remember to check them and change them if necessary.
You can repair and extend the lifespan of your scooter with spare parts that can be ordered through your local Decathlon store's Workshop.
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.
