Maker of best-selling hoverboards introduces three-wheel scooters for kids and toddlers including a convertible 4-in-1 balance trike
COSTA MESA, Calif., March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- SWAGTRON™, the undisputed leader in rideables for all ages, expands kick-scooter offerings for kids. Known for its light electric vehicles (LEVs)—ranging from ebikes to hoverboards—the brand's latest scooters are human powered and include three-wheel designs for kids and toddlers.
The K5 and K6 are three-wheel scooters designed for kids (ages 3 +) and toddlers (2 to 5) respectively. The K5 features light-up LED wheels and a pivoting front chassis similar to SWAGTRON's Cali-Drift. The K6 is a balance trike for toddlers that turns into a stand-up scooter to grow with them.
"We're committed to providing smart options for riders of all ages," says Jason Wakefield, CMO. "By expanding our kids' trike and scooter lineup, we're making it easy to have fun while building the balance and skills necessary for many miles of smiles to come."
SWAGTRON K5 THREE-WHEEL SCOOTER FOR KIDS
The K5 is perfect for kids who've graduated from the K2 or the new K6, but offers greater stability than traditional two-wheel scooters. A three-wheel "tadpole" design places two wheels in the front, paired with a pivot-style steering mechanism that allows young riders to intuitively lean and carve to turn like a skateboard. The rear wheel is actually two wheels in one, making it easier to balance. The K5 features adjustable height handlebars to grow with kids, a rear heel brake and LED wheels that light up when in motion.

With the click of a simple button, the seat of the balance bike rotates to become the deck of a stand-up scooter.
