If you’re looking for an escooter for your teenager then this is a great option, and one that we feel comfortable recommending you. But the Windgoo T10 is definitely a scooter for teens and not for younger kids as it goes up to 15mph.
It has other specs to match - a range of 15km and reasonably-sized 8-inch tyres, which give it a higher ground clearance than, say, the Zinc Eco.
You do pay for this spec and performance - at £250, it’s the most expensive scooter on this list. But it's one we're happy to recommend based on our tests.
What we loved:
The integrated front light is a nice touch that few other larger kids' scooters have, and a good little safety feature.
The T10's puncture-proof 8-inch tyres feel teenager-proof and their size, bigger than most rivals', mean it's a comfy ride.
I also like the design of the stem, the way it curves back is ergonomic and creates a comfortable ride.
What we didn't like
No lever brake, just an electronic brake and a footbrake, meaning it takes longer to slow down than the Razors we tested.
I said I like the stem - but I do worry about the bend being a potential weak spot.
The T10 claims a maximum rider weight of 120kg, but I can tell you as somebody who weighs 90kg that you probably shouldn’t ride this if you’re heavier than around 80 kilos, as it just won’t get you up hills or inclines.
"The platform board is covered in sand - I guess it's like the design you get on skateboards. It's quite simple looking but I really like it.
"I really like the stem because it's quite a nice shape and it has a nice like feel to it. It's really cool to ride. And the light helps you see at night. We were going to do some testing in the dark but I needed to go home and stuff."
Specs and performance
This scooter is zippy, there’s no doubt about it. With a 250w brushless motor, it will accelerate quickly even with an adolescent rider on board.
With its fairly powerful 250w motor, we’d implore parents to ensure their child is using it responsibly. With a charge time of just 3 and a half hours, when it does run out of juice, you won’t have to wait too long to charge it back up again.
Age and weight
The recommended age is 8+ but due to its power and speed, we would not put anyone under 13 on this. In terms of rider height, the Windgoo T10 will suit riders from around 140cm, or 4 and a half feet, up to 170cm, or 5 and a half feet.
With an average range of around 8 miles in our tests (bang in the middle of the claimed 12-14km) this should be enough for most teenagers
With that motor, 8-inch wheels and a substantial feel to it, this is very much comparable to an entry-level adult scooter, but at a lower price.

How we tested the T10
- We’ve assessed each scooter for components and build quality, safety and security, performance and handling, comfort and practicality, and value for money.
- And as well as our expert assessment, we made use of Gabes (who is 10), an existing electroheads fan and electric scooter rider - his verdict is based on a lengthy ride on various surfaces
Important legal and safety information
- It is essential to wear a helmet when using an electric scooter. These are motorised vehicles and you should also consider knee and elbow protectors. Make sure your child understands how to stop and start safely.
- Currently privately-owned electric scooters are legal on private property with the owner's permission. They are not to be used on roads, cycle lanes or footpaths in the UK, although the government has said it will legislate on this before the spring. It is your responsibility to drive your escooter lawfully. You accept all risk and liability for using scooter products.
