How to choose the perfect stunt scooter

Greatly enjoyed by kids, teens and adults who have a passion for freestyle scootering, stunt scooters have quickly gained popularity among the younger generation. From a niche group to one of the fastest-growing communities, freestyle scootering is a sport that is taking over skateparks all over the world. If you’re thinking about getting into the world of freestyle scootering, selecting the best stunt scooter is the first step towards becoming an epic stunt-pulling rider! When choosing the best stunt scooter, consider the following points:

 

Stunt Scooter Materials

Robust, high-quality materials are essential for stunt scooters. The material composition of a stunt scooter contributes to its overall performance, from sturdiness and stability to comfort and grip. Having single or triple channel aluminium decks, preferably T5 or T6 treated, steel or aluminium bars, PU casted wheels and aluminium anodized alloy cores help create a strong stunt scooter that can endure hours of freestyle scootering and stunt practice. A fork, headset & clamp set made of steel or aluminium are also advisable, as the two mentioned materials are durable and robust for stunt scooters.

 

Age & Skill of the Stunt Scooter Rider

The best stunt scooter should fit the rider’s size and build perfectly. As stunt scooters are non-adjustable, the stunt scooter bar’s height needs to ideally fit the rider. A good point to remember is that stunt scooter bars should settle around the hip to the waist area of the rider while on the stunt scooter deck. It not only provides comfort, but also superb balance when performing tricks. However, some riders do prefer higher bars as it provides more room for certain stunts, so choose a stunt scooter bar height according to your level of comfort and stunt needs.

 

Stunt Scooter Design

Epic freestyle scootering rides come hand-in-hand with a slick, cool stunt scooter design, as it completes your overall rider look! Stunt scooters come in all shades and tones, from colourful gradients to neon hues. It’s best to choose a stunt scooter design that makes you feel the most confident as you shred the skatepark with your awesome flips and tricks!
