When the Yvolution Y Flyer Scooter dropped on our doorstep there has been nothing but excitement and eagerness to get outside in the cold breeze and ride away like it’s second nature, not that the Y Flyer is your regular scooter. Far from it, this is a beast of a scooter, it is huge but fair enough as it’s aimed at 7-12 year olds and just looking at it you can see it’s substantial, well built and durable.
The scooter comes boxed and requires minimal assembly to put it together, which took only 5 minutes to do. It is then ready to use and the handle can be folded down for storage purposes.
It was then time to give it a try. It works with a unique forward propelling motion that is operated by pushing the foot plates up and down. It has a chain which I was quite surprised by and a handbrake making it easy to stop as you can pick up some speed with the Y Flyer. The scooter has a steel frame that is quite heavy but that does make it sturdy. It does take a bit of getting used to as it’s different, but my soon to be 9yr old took to it straightaway. She’s very sporty and loves being outdoors so this was a good challenge for her to try out but one that she loved and enjoyed.
So what did we think?
Well I can only say that we loved it because we did. It is amazing, a head turner, incredibly well built and something Miss M absolutely adored and has had a lot of fun with. It’s great for exercise as it makes you work, but the feeling of ‘flying’ down the road is exhilarating and worth the effort. Whilst out and about in our local streets trying out the scooter, we did get a lot of admirers and people were intrigued as to what Miss M was riding – the Y Flyer from Yvolution will certainly get you noticed and why not? It’s a clever, unique and different way to travel that we’d throughly recommend!
