We know that the school run can be stressful – making sure the kids have their lunch, homework, and PE kit can be a testing task each morning. On top of balancing all of that, you find yourself juggling their bags on the way to and from school. So the opportunity to upgrade your school run transport could make all the difference to your day.
There are a few simple steps that can transform your school run and leave both you and your little ones raring to go for the day ahead, and a school scooter might just be the key!
Get Active on The School Run
It’s great to get active. Light exercise in the morning can invigorate you for the day ahead, as well as boosting your children's productivity in the classroom. Scooting is a great way to exercise, and the SwiftyIXI is the perfect solution for a safe, stable, and fun way to get to and from school. The earlier we get our children into healthy habits, the better. By encouraging them to get their heart rates up travelling to and from school we're building a positive routine into their days that will stick with them.
The IXI's large pneumatic wheels mean your children can go further and are not restricted by long grass, cracks in the pavement or any of the other common hazards that can cause problems on the way to school! Front and rear v-brakes mean your children are able to make safe and controlled stops quickly when needed. This, in turn, gives you peace of mind knowing your child will be safe on their school scooter!
Kids Scooters Designed to Last Years
Selecting the right upgrade once your child has grown out of their small 3 wheel scooter is important. We’re all tempted to go for the cheapest option, but what if you found something that was built to last years of daily use, AND was smoother and safer than anything else out there? Enter SwiftyIXI.
Once your child outgrows their 3 wheeled scooter when they get to age 7 or 8, it's important to upgrade their ride. Pneumatic tyres make the SwiftyIXI ideal for gliding over mixed terrain, whether it’s Autumn leaves or a cobbled path – its 12" wheels soak up all the bumps making it a safe, smooth and fun way to travel.
Our big-wheeled kid's scooters are designed in Manchester, UK so we know the challenges you come across when you're travelling to school in the mornings. We've taken this into account when designing this retro kick scooter and have optimised the SwiftyIXI to handle anything that's thrown at it safely. It's an all-seasons scooter; a happy medium between the freedom of a bike and the safety of the pavement.
Integrated mudguards come as standard, protecting their school uniform from dirt and water; muddy puddles have met their match this time. The wet-weather ready SwiftyIXI is great for all seasons, so there’s no need to leave the scooters at home on a gloomy day.
A Big Wheel Scooter That Will Grow With Children
The Swifty IXI can stay with your kids through to their transition into ‘big’ school because the adjustable handlebar makes it perfect for growing children aged 7 to 12. It’s a one-time investment for their childhood memories and for the ease of the back-to-school scoot.
The award-winning IXI scooters have standard bike components, which not only add to the retro styling but also make the scooters fully lockable just like a bike. Because it's safe to lock it outside of school during the day, you're saved the hassle of having to carry it home or store it in your car.

Hi Phil, we are planning on making a full video showing the capabilities of our electric scooters at some point soon! If you sign up to the newsletter on our website, you’ll be kept up to date when this comes out. As mentioned on the product page, the battery can handle a 10% incline at 7mph (based on the average male rider) comfortably.
Our electric scooters don’t recharge while you are cruising, to recharge you need to charge the battery at home.
Also, please note that our electric scooters are only adult models, rather than children’s scooters which this blog is about.
Please upload a video showing a) how many metres and over what gradients of slope the battery can assist with before running out of charge AND b) how much % recharge of the battery a downhill cruise generates. Thanks
