  1. I have a question about this list. The Know-Ped has the highest score on the Editor’s Top Picks list in the sidebar. It has a front brake, yet it isn’t on this list of 10 Scooters with a front brake.

    Please explain.

  2. Hi Chris, You’re right. Definitely an oversight on our part. Thanks for the heads up! We’ve updated the list!

    • Cool! I changed the internet.

      Anyways…(I don’t know if this needs to be posted either)

      Thank you for the response. I’d like to ask some more questions but I don’t see a way to contact “Editor” beyond the comments section.

      I have been labouring over this decision for a while now. My only experience with kick scooters is the A5. From that I think I like the idea of owning a scooter and know that I would like something a bit more robust and refined. Based on reviews non seem more robust than the Know-Ped and by extension the KickPed. I liked the speed of the A5 though a slight decrease would likely be acceptable for a more stable wheel like that of the KnowPed/KickPed. There seem to be many that are more carefully refined than the Razor. The weight of the KnowPed/KickPed seems higher than most but not much more than the other higher end thinner wheeled competitors. I was leaning towards the KickPed because it’s basically a KnowPed that is styled a bit more to my liking. But I would love the actually hear an opinion from someone that has tried many different scooters.

      Thanks for your help.


  3. Hi Chris,

    The KickPed has a narrower deck than the Know-Ped, which means after kicking off the ground, you’ll need to place your foot at the back. This can put a strain on your calf muscles after a while. Whereas for the Know-Ped, you’ll get to place your foot side by side.

    I would choose KickPed for the style and if I’m only using it for short distance commuting.

    And I would choose KnowPed if I’m going for longer rides and need comfort more than style. And if you really can’t decide. Get both! 🙂

    • Thanks for the reply.

      I think going from zero to two will be a tough sell for my wife, but we have to dream big I guess.

      I’m curious what defines short vs. long distances. I think my average trip will be about 5 km over city streets with occasional medium inclines. It couldn’t be described as steep but also not nothing. Wet ground is also not a rare occurance here. I know that because of the wider, smaller wheels/tires that they’re not quite as fast.

      Given the conditions I describe, do the KnowPed/KickPeds sound like they’re suited to my needs or could something else be better?

      • Hi Chris, Short distance to me is anything below 1km. Sounds like the Know Ped would be a better choice.

        And if I really have to recommend an alternative choice for you. The Xootr Ultra Cruz could be included into one of your options for consideration.
        Read our review here:

        It’s lighter in weight (10.5 lbs versus Knowped’s 15.3 pounds). Has a large deck for comfortable riding for long distance (more than 1km). And it can take a beating since you mentioned that there’s wet ground.
        It has a wooden deck that seems to what you’ve been leaning towards as well. Xootr has great after support too.

        Hope this helps!
