Whiplash is an awesome scooter with a twist. The Whiplash has a bit of a “wave” experience, meaning it whips from side to side. The Whiplash looks almost like a scooter, but would be awkward and difficult if used like a scooter. Instead of placing your feet forward as you would with a scooter, it’s much easier to put both feet at an angle and move your weight back and fourth.
I have three daughters, and they are 11, 9, and 3 years old. My 11-year-old and 9-year-old got on the Whiplash and both loved it; it was instant riding and enjoyment. My 3-year-old has to wait a few years to ride on it. Here is a picture of my 11-year-old riding on it as she was coming to a stop.
The assembly was mostly easy, although you may need to get longer screws to fit the parts together. It was a bit of a hassle, but once you do that the Whiplash works great. The screws provided were either too short or the threads were not working properly because they would not screw in. The handlebars are adjustable and they just snap in. To adjust them, you only need to push the knobs in and then slide the bar up to the next set of knob holes to make it longer. It took about five minutes to assemble, that is, if your kids aren’t around.
