The Xootr Venus is for the kick scooter enthusiast who dares to be different. The hour glass shape of the deck is not only beautiful, but functional as well. The center of the deck narrows to 4 inches, just like the Roma allowing for nearly the same bio-mechanical efficiencies. The extra width at both ends provides more of a platform for your feet to rest on when cruising. The longer deck also allows you to fit both feet 'goofy style' unlike other adult kick scooters such as the Razor A5 Lux, Know-Ped, or Micro. The deck of the Venus is CNC machined from a solid block of 6061 aluminum, providing a light and literally bulletproof structure, but also supporting adults up to 300 lbs (136 kgs). While not quite as light and compact as the Roma, the Venus is still a great choice for carrying around on mass transit, shops, offices, or packing in a suitcase for airline travel.
