What Are Stunt scooter Bars?
Stunt scooter bars are an important part of your scooter setup. Scooter bars come in various sizes and designs, to fit your height and riding style accordingly.

T-bars are used more for street riding and are typically made from steel. The Y-bar consists of three or more welded pieces, whereas the T-bar is made up of two pieces. Some T-bars have reinforcements to the crossbar for added durability.
Some pro scooter bars have a back sweep, meaning that the bar is bent at a back angle, like many bike handlebars. Whether you prefer a stunt scooter bar with a back sweep or not is a matter of your own taste.
