The AEST A85 “Land Cruiser” is probably the most sturdy and stable kick scooter you will ever experience. Period.
With the patented double-cam structure in the folding joint, AEST has achieved what few other scooter makers are capable of: a foldable scooter with practically no looseness in the folding joint. This is the best of both worlds, giving the rider portability without sacrificing sturdiness.
Another distinguishing feature is the doubling of load-bearing ball bearings in both wheels. The A85 has four bearings in each wheel. This is unheard of in the scooter market. This design halves the load on the bearings and drastically improves the rolling efficiency. Couple this with high-grade ABEC 9 bearings and you get unprecedented glide efficiency.
The overall structure is designed with stability and strength in mind. This makes sense because the A85 is designed with the European market in mind. The model is intended for the tall and heavy body sizes that are common in that part of the world.
The deck or foot-board of the scooter is generously wide. It is also deeply dropped. This means it is very closed to the ground, making it very effortless to push because you don't need to bend the knee of your standing leg to push, reducing muscle fatigue in the thighs. This design makes riding the scooter feel very safe and stable.
Some riders may find the 6.3kg weight of the scooter heavy. This weight is translated into stability, especially at high speeds. It is common knowledge that the weight and ride quality of vehicles are correlated. Just think about well-known European car brands. The mass also can be experienced as momentum when riding. That means once you get the scooter up to speed, there is excellent persistence of motion for a very pleasurable glide. The weight is a perfect marriage with the high-grade, double-quantity bearings.
We nickname this model the “Land Cruiser” to highlight the excellent stability and ride quality it offers. It is excellent for a long, leisurely cruise in the parks.
