Would you believe that the first Primitive scooters have been hand-made in industrial urban areas for at least 100 years. Before bicycles became popular among children, steel scooters with two small bicycle wheels had been the most useful vehicles for them. Around 1987, many BMX manufacturers produced BMX-like scooters known as as ‘Scoots’. Those manufacturers discontinued their scooters, but some scooter manufacturers were established after years, and still develop similar scooters today; Some are used in dense urban areas for utility purposes, being faster than a folding scooter and more convenient than a utility bicycle. Some are made for off-road use and are described as Mountain Scooters.
A kick scooter or push scooter, originally scooter, is a human-powered vehicle with a handlebar, deck and wheels that is propelled by a rider pushing off the ground. In the late 1990s, the “Micro Skate Scooter”, a sleeker, narrower folding version of the kick scooter, was created by Wim Ouboter of Micro Mobility Systems in Switzerland. The scooter was rebadged as the “Razor” in the USA. JD Corporation, the founder of Razor USA also sold them as the “JD Bug/Razor MS-130A“. In 1999 and 2000 the aluminum scooters and their copies became popular in Japan and the United States, in a wide variety of colors and styles. The three brands are still produced and are popular with children and with a niche market of young adults who use the scooters to perform stunts. The Razor scooter is a foldable scooter invented by the J.D. Corporation, which also sells aluminum bicycle parts and electric scooters in Shanghai, Taiwan. The Razor Scooter took 5 years to design under Gino Tsai, the then 44 year-old Taiwanese president of J.D. Corporation. Gino Tsai, a mechanical engineer claims that his legs were too short, and his walking speed always seemed too slow to get around his large bicycle factory in Chang Hua, Taiwan. To serve that purpose, Gino Tsai updated the old-fashioned scooter into the modern Razor scooter. The Razor uses airplane grade aluminum tested to support an 1,100 pound load without bending, (often neon colored) polyurethane wheels with silent bearings, and a patented brake worked by stepping on the rear fender. The most common scooters today have two hard small wheels, are made primarily of aluminium and fold for convenience. Freestyle Scooter Riding has grown massively in the last couple of years is a progressive, modern sport that is really exciting with people like Terry Price and Ryan Williams achieving new tricks for the first time.
