Threaded or threadless scooter forks?
On this page, you will find a great selection of pro scooter forks in various colors and designs that let you stand out at your local skatepark.
Nowadays, most scooter forks are made threadless for a more stable connection between the bar and the fork. Threadless scooter forks are different from threaded forks in weight, durability, and setup-wise. If you want to ride with a threadless fork, you'll need to install a compression system on you pro scooter as well. Find out more about compression systems here. Threadless types of forks are therefore widely used for park riding and used by more advanced riders. Threaded scooter forks are however still seen on complete scooters in the lower price range. These are perfect for learning your first tricks and are easier to install. Threaded trick scooter forks do however meet their limit faster when advancing in your tricks.
Scooter fork material
Scooter forks are made of either steel or aluminum. Steel scooter forks are heavier yet more durable and very suitable for beginners. Aluminum ones are lighter yet less durable but often preferred by more advanced riders.
Aluminum forks are likely to be more expensive than steel forks. If you're just getting into the sport, a steel fork will properly be just fine for now. When you get your passion for scooting confirmed, you should consider upgrading to an aluminum bar.
