Ok so you are after a stunt scooter, but which one do you go for.
There are so many different types out there it can be a minefield.
Things you have to think about:
- Handle Bars
So as you can see it’s no just about the colour!
The price is probably your main concern, we’re talking about stunt scooters here and prices can be anything from £50.00 up to a whopping £700.00.
At the £50.00 end we have:
Maui and Sons Destroyer £49.99

If you are a parent you’re probably asking yourself why the extra cost?
Just think back to when you were a kid, maybe skateboards or roller boats was your thing, how much did you pay for those, the boot, the trucks, the wheels, the bearings.
You only get what you pay for, if you are going to be the next Tanner Fox then you need the best gear money can buy.
The high end models are more robust, much stonger than the scooter at the bottom end. They are made of stronger/lighter materials and most top end scooters come with a compression system to ensure a smooth ride.
