Glideco Recon Kick Scooter with Handbrakes and Dual Suspension
The Glideco Recon has the scooter market’s most popular configuration: dual suspension with dual brake. This is a well-rounded kick scooter on which you can confidently explore the urban landscape.
The Recon has both the default rear friction brake found on all scooters, and a bicycle-style handbrake. The handbrake allows for a more relaxing riding because you don’t have to move your feet to brake, and you can keep both feet on the footboard during braking. In addition, the rear brake is implemented with a bicycle-style disc brake instead of the conventional friction pad. Disc brakes are generally more reliable and have greater stopping power than friction brakes.
The front head-tube mounted suspension and the rear fork-mounted suspension work together to offer maximum shock absorption on a kick scooter. They heavily dampen the major vibrations on uneven road surfaces, allowing you to overcome stretches of bumpy pavement. The suspension system allows you to maintain a relatively higher cruising speed over bumpy surfaces on which other kick scooters have to slow down. The rear suspension can also be easily calibrated with a spanner to stiffen or soften the spring tension to cater to riders of different body weights.
The Glideco Recon is best for riders who like to ride hard and explore unfamiliar areas in which pavement conditions may be uncertain. It is also appreciated by bicycle riders who are more familiar with a bicycle-style handbrake. The Glideco Recon has an entry-level retail price, offering excellent value for first-time kick scooter buyers who want a general-purpose kick scooter.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR BUYERS
Delivered in plain-looking but environmentally friendly brown boxes.
We have asked the manufacturer to package the Glideco Recon in sturdy all-journey carton boxes. Most consumer products are packaged in attractive but fragile gift boxes which themselves need to be put in outer "master cartons". Every day, millions of outer cartons are thrown away. We want to avoid this. So the Recon is packaged in a single brown box all the way from the factory to you, without the need for additional packaging. If you live for beautiful packaging, this product is not for you.
Minor scuff marks may be present
The Glideco Recon offers lots of features at a very economical price. It is an entry-level kick scooter and so the quality control isn't as perfect as full-price brands. So minor scruff marks and paint imperfections may be present. If you are a perfectionist, the Recon may not satisfy your expectations. But if like the rest of us you recognize good value, please accept the imperfections. If the superficial problems bother you, please make an appointment with us to bring the scooter in for an exchange within 14 days. We can exchange it as long as the scooter is in original condition and unused.
