I know that the Schwinn Adult Shuffle Scooter practically is not a bike and this website is dedicated to cycling but I can’t skip and pass this product. It’s so bizarre looking and strange and at the same time somehow beautiful. Not to mention that the scooter is very popular and even a little bit hyped right now. With all this in mind, I decided to write a full review of this kick bike here.
Let’s face it, sometimes we get bored and don’t want to take the bicycle. Kids love scooters, and they even benefit from using it. They are so fun and enjoyable to ride that even the adults should try it. There are many scooters for adults on the market but they are practically the same as the scooters for the kids but reinforced for the weight.
Schwinn decided to take another approach here and redesigned completely the adult scooter. And I can say hands down that they’ve revolutionized the scooter with this model, and made the best kick scooter for adults.
I think that you can even commute to work with the Schwinn shuffle scooter just like with any normal bicycle. Of course, this depends on the distance because it won’t be very easy to kick your bike for 10 miles or more.
As you can see the Schwinn Adult Shuffle Scooter has big wheels, solid aluminum frame and bicycle retro designed type handlebars. It features alloy front and rear linear pull brakes for all condition braking which is nice because with these big wheels it could be really fast. Having such a good braking system is not common with adult scooters, so this is really a nice thing to have.
Also, it features front and rear fenders which will keep you dry and clean but they are also a big part of the overall design of the scooter in my opinion. Especially the rear fender is a very important part of the entire scooter.
This model comes with 26’’ large wheels which are fast and good enough for pavement and asphalt. The scooter can be a very nice alternative way to exercise in the park. Have in mind that riding a kick bike is not so easy as riding a bicycle. You will have to learn a little bit and build up stamina.
It’s also a lot tougher than walking but it’s a great way to exercise the lower body. In my opinion with each kick, you are making a little bit squat on the thigh. So it is recommended to learn using both feet for which takes time.
Schwinn is a very respected bike manufacturer and it’s known for their good and long-lasting aluminum frames. It has more than 100 years of history of making good bicycles. With this scooter, you can be absolutely sure that they’ve used their experience building a high-quality product.
I know that there are many other options now for adult scooters with big wheels but in my opinion, the Schwinn is the best value for money. It’s dirt cheap ( normally sells around $150 ) and you don’t want to spend a lot of money on such type of product and after that realize you won’t use it at all. Because sadly this happens really often.
In conclusion, I can say that the Schwinn Adult Shuffle Scooter is an excellent kick bike for adults which I recommend to everybody. It’s very fun and has a lot of charm. With its classic retro look, it will turn the heads after you in the park. The scooter is cheap enough that even if you don’t like the experience you will not regret the buy. If your kids love scooters you can go out with them with the Schwinn Adult Shuffle Scooter and enjoy a great weekend outside.
Some users even praise the scooter for handling even 350 lbs adults just like a normal bicycle for heavy riders. Also, some use it for walking dogs because it’s easier to make more miles and of course much more fun. You can use a bike dog leash and make it the perfect dog walk experience. It seems that there are some dog powered scooters as well, but I really don’t like the idea – poor dogs.
