Choosing electric scooters for children is as important as choosing commuter electric scooters. If you want to buy an electric scooter to give your children a surprise or reward, you should first check the safety and performance to ensure children's cycling safety.However, apart from safety and performance, there is another critical point for kids. His electric scooter should have some other extraordinary features, which can stand out from other children's electric scooters.

Another excellent choice for young riders, NEX is equipped with a 250W super motor that can speed up to 13mph. Another point is that NEX has two riding modes, beginner mode and advanced mode. For children who are not familiar with electric scooters, beginner mode is undoubtedly the best choice.

The NEX is equipped with a double braking system combined with the skid-proof surfaces on the deck and handlebars, which can maximize safety. We strongly recommend that young riders wear helmets and protective equipment to ride, but if there is a model that can be used without protective equipment, it is NEX.

Secondly, safety equipment is essential, including helmets, knee pads and elbow pads. When using helmets, you should keep your chin belt tight. When riding, your children should develop the good habit of wearing safety equipment, so that they can continue to abide by these rules in the future. It is suggested that children wear sports shoes and casual shoes tied with shoelaces when riding electric scooters, which can help them have good stability when riding and parking, and avoid riding barefoot or wearing sandals.

Another safety rule is to start slowly, which is also applicable to experienced riders. If you start too fast, your child may fall. The best way is to start slowly, let your child get familiar with the scooter gradually, and gradually accelerate to the highest speed. Remember, it is important to keep comfortable with the scooter during riding and always drive carefully.
