The Safe Start Transform Rechargeable Electric Scooter is designed for kids of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, ages 6 and up. The Speed Control Switch sets the top speed to either 5 mph or 8 mph, and the thumb-actuated throttle smoothly controls acceleration to top speed. The rechargeable 12-volt battery provides 40 minutes of continuous ride time. The extra wide, low profile deck makes this electric scooter extremely stable and easy to control, and the lean-to-turn steering makes it fun to ride. The rear foot brake gives the rider complete control and is an intuitive transition from standard kick scooters.
