I am really lucky that I have two boys that take no encouragement to be sporty and active. They love being out playing with their friends and often only return home if they are hungry or it is dark! For the last three weeks the MiniMads have been testing out the Yvolution Y Fliker Lift. Want to know what they thought of it? Read on…
The Yvolution Y Fliker Lift is a three wheeler trick scooter that works my pushing your feet either way in a swooping motion, you don’t wiggle your bum, which is what I wanted to do! I think the technical term is a reciprocal scooter.
Yvolution Y Fliker Lift Review
It took nine minutes to get the scooter from the box to them using it outside. it would have been less, but they insisting on “helping”! You get all your need to get it up in the box, but make sure you read the instructions all the way through before you start, as I didn’t think they were in a logical order.
The Yvolution Y Fliker Lift is unique as it has small wheels that they call lift technology which enables stunts, such as wheelies, drifts and carving. Maxi loves the fact that it is more than just a standard scooter and has been having lots of fun with it.
The Yvolution Y Fliker Lift has been a big draw for all the ten year old’s in the area. It was fun watching them all line up to have a go on Sunday and they all knew what it was when they saw it and they started singing the song from the advert!
Our garage is full of bikes, scooters, trikes and go-karts and I was concerned that we might not have room for the Yvolution Y Fliker Lift, but I was wrong. The Y Fliker folds really compactly, you just turn the do-dahs (yes the technical term) at the front and the handle folds down and the legs fold together making it comparable in size to a standard scooter.
Now I am not going to pretend that the Yvolution Y Fliker Lift isn’t an investment piece. It costs £99.99, which is a lot for a scooter, but not when compared to a stunt scooter. Oh and if all these terms mean nothing to you, then you need my parent’s guide to buying scooters. I can see the boys and their friends getting a lot of play out of the Yvolution Y Fliker Lift. Learning new tricks and trying to out trick each other.
The only downside of the Yvolution Y Fliker Lift is the fact that you need a fair bit of space to be able to make the most of it. We live on an estate with lots of children so the cars drive pretty slowly, so the boys were using it on the road. You need more than a pavement to get the best of it trick wise.
Don’t just take our word for what we think, here are some other blogger reviews of Yvolution Y Fliker series

Yvolution Y Fliker Lift
Disclosure: We were gifted a Yvolution Y Fliker Lift for the purpose of this review, but as ever we tell it like it is!
Wow! This is definitely an awesome scooter. I love that you can use it for stunts!
Thanks for adding our link for the fliker air review.
This looks great! We have the adult version and us big kids love it!
The scooter looks amazing. I have seen lots like this and always wondered how they steered them but I know my kids would love them.
this sounds brill! our eldest would love a stunt scooter like that – will check it out as he has birthday and christmas coming up!
Ooh that looks like a lot of fun but sadly I think my two are past scooters now – they’re all about bikes 😉
This looks like such fun, I bet the boys were over the moon to try this out! I love your photos, and the video too! 🙂
These look so much fun, I would totally have loved one as a child. x
Great review. Yes we tried doing it on the pavement and the boys kept going into the road. I guess I never mentioned the longevity of it as my youngest are only 6 and 8 and it can be used for years to come (as well as for my 12 year old, and us adults!).
Thank you for the mention.
Looks like they have got the hang of the tricks – still working on it here
What a great scooter, Emma loves her plain one but I do see her craving for something like the Yvolution in a few years!xx
