I was able to test out the Space Scooter X580. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed riding it outside and even a little bit inside my house. This is a convertible scooter that operates two ways. The first is like a regular scooter, where you push with one foot and the other stays on the scooter bed. The second way is by keeping both feet on the deck, and then pushing your weight back and forth to propel the scooter. The scooter folds up so you can take it on trips, and there is a good air brake system just in case you have to make a fast stop.

I liked that it was fun and easy to use as a regular scooter or pushing off the deck. The ride is smooth and fun.

I didn’t like that it was difficult to open and fold. I needed to watch the online video several times to figure it out. I also didn’t like that it was so heavy.

All in all, I thought it was great and I think you will, too.
