Kick scooters are very complex products, on which many tests have to be done to verify their full functionality, robustness and durability. Your kick scooter should meet all the requirements we mention here. It is the responsibility of the manufacturers to demonstrate conformity of their products to the applicable standards and to declare that these products meet all the requirements laid down. Generally, the manufacturers can demonstrate conformity of their products in three ways:

  1. The manufacturer has its own, in-house test station and verifies all the parameters in there. 
  2. The manufacturer has the parameters verified by one of the testing laboratories that are competent to perform the required tests.
  3. The manufacturer takes a risk, does not verify any parameters and simply places its product on the market. This, however, is a very hazardous approach both for the manufacturer and (especially) for the users of such a product.
  • quality of the design/construction of kick scooters 

    (protruding components and edges, etc.)

  • parts moving against each other

    (folding mechanism, sliding mechanism, etc.)

  • steering system

    (effectiveness, strength)

  • deck
  • bearings
  • axles
  • wheels
  • self-locking fixings
  • mechanism to reduce the speed 
  • strength

    (static load test, steering column, drop test, impact test, endurance testing, etc.)


  • accompanying documentation (technical descriptions etc...)
  • instructions
  • marking, packaging (completeness, durability)
  • deck grip
  • construction strength 
  • insufficient documentation, instructions and marking
  • ČSN EN 14619:2005 Roller sports equipment – Kick scooters – Safety requirements and test methods
