Characteristics of stunt scooters
Stunt scooters look like regular scooters, but a stunt scooter cannot be height adjusted and cannot be folded, all this to make it as strong and durable as possible.
Many people want a scooter that is both strong and light, but these two qualities do not always match. Manufacturers are trying to be innovative in both materials and special constructions. Therefore, you can also buy special parts for scooters that cost more than a complete scooter.
Some of the parts manufacturers are particularly working on are:
- Strong bottom (deck) and neck
- Lighter and stronger wheels
- Onepiece designs
- Stronger bars
- Stronger clamps
Expensive stunt scooters are usually built with compression systems, such as SCS, ICS and HIC. They are different constructed, but they all give a more solid steering mechanism. Furthermore, a compression system is easier to adjust and maintain.
