The Kickboard Compact is the next step up from the Maxi - perfect for young teens and smaller adults. The 3-wheel Kickboard offers the same axle style steering as the Mini and Maxi - riders simply lean to steer, similar to riding a skateboard but with more control. The Compact's slightly shorter aluminum deck makes it easy for teens and smaller adults to handle. The Compact's steering stick can be disengaged from the deck, like the Mini or Maxi, making it easy to pack away. A benefit of all Kickboards is that they stay upright when you hop off, making it easy to park quickly, or switch from riding to walking, and back again. The Kickboard Compact Black comes in TBar only, but Choose TBar or Pilot Steering with the Kickboard Compact in Chrome. Pilot steering offers a freer style of curving and carving and the more traditional TBar steering provides for easier balancing.
