A Kick Scooter for Taller and Heavier Adults: SwiftyONE TALL
There’s nothing like gliding along standing tall riding your kick-scooter. For those of us who are particularly tall or heavy, it can be a real challenge to find a scooter that is comfortable for our needs.

SwiftyONE Tall – rider height 195cm (6’5”) | max weight 150kg (330lb)
Introducing SwiftyONE TALL, our foldable adult scooter that’s suitable for adults with a height of up to 6’5” (195cm), and tested to a max load of 150kg (330lb).
For those tall or heavy individuals, a foldable scooter with a folding mechanism that’s robust, and a riding position that lets you stand straight enough to be comfortable, is a must. We’re now offering a riser handlebar upgrade to fit a SwiftyONE MK3, making a SwiftyONE TALL.
Scooters for Tall Adults - Handlebar Height
With an adjustable handlebar height, you can customise your scooting stance to suit each rider. With a max height of 1155mm (44.5inches) and upright position, a rider of up to 195cm (6’5″) can stand tall, and ride comfortably.
As well as offering you this extra height, the SwiftyONE TALL is no bigger than the regular SwiftyONE when in its folded position, meaning it can be taken onto public transport, stored, or put in the boot of your can without any issues!
Scooters for Heavy Adults - Our Robust Folding Mechanism
With an intrinsically safe rear folding mechanism, (forces not bearing down on locking pin) the mechanism for SwiftyONE won’t fail under heavier loads.
This feature is unique to SwiftyONE – designed and engineered in the UK and is tested to 150kg BSEN: 14619:2015.
A Kick Scooter Fit For Professional Athletes
Olympic Bobsledder Toby Olubi measures in a 6’5” (195cm) and uses a SwiftyONE TALL as one of his main modes of transport. Being an athlete it's important for him to look after his body and make sure he's travelling with the correct posture, to not cause any unnecessary damage.
Here's what Toby has to say about the SwiftyONE TALL -
'[The TALL] scooter allows me to get out of the sedentary seated position that often locks up my hips. It allows me to adopt the correct posture, engaging my core and work on my “pushing” muscles. As a bobsleigh athlete, my pushing muscles (namely my glutes, quads and calves) are essential to my event. Pushing a scooter works these muscles in a capacity that’s not too taxing but beneficial.'
