Radio Flyer Pro Glider 3-Wheel Scooter Review
The Pro Glider has a great mix of speed and safety. It can ride almost as fast as a 2 wheel scooter but also maintains the safety and maneuverability of a three wheeled scooter. There are a few extra features that make this an excellent choice for toddlers. First, they included a rear break that you can step on if you want to reduce your speed and the back of the board is tapered so that you can get a clear kick path without hitting the edge of the board. The scooter also has a metal frame underneath the footboard to make it sturdier.

This makes the deck very stable and not as wobbly. I thought that this board was a great improvement to the “My first Scooter’ series and of the many reviews I’ve read on amazon it seems it was received very well. The pro glider is a great starting scooter for ages 4-6. It is a lot of fun for toddlers to move and it can even help them develop good habits for when they get bigger scooters and bikes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is there a weight limit?
A: 60 lb but but probably could go over a little.
Q: Does the back wheel wear down from braking?
A: Yes, my kids got them when they turned 2. Turning 4 this year and have completely worn through the back (breaking) wheel.
The lean to steer function helps them practice leaning into turns which is helpful even with larger vehicles. The scooter also teaches the kids about safety in a very controlled environment. I think this scooter makes a great gift for a young child and is sure to keep them happy and busy outside.
