Frequently asked questions
I or my child is new to the scooter, what is the best choice of scooter for someone new to?
The person must be able to control their scooter, this is the most important. For younger people, it is better to choose a lighter scooter. This makes it easier to control and learn tricks.
What is the difference between a Pro Scooter compared to a standard scooter?
The Pro Scooter is built to endure the blows and offer optimal performance day after day while being safe to ride.
Which brand of scooter should I buy?
The brands we hold are the best brands available on the market. We have tested them and we can say that it is a personal choice or a popularity with young people. Some brands have better prestige than others among young people.
Do you want to buy a complete scooter (Completes) or build your own personalized professional scooter (Custom)?
Many manufacturers offer ready-to-ride scooters (complete scooters), often referred to as “complete”. The only assembly required is to fix the handlebars to the fork with the clamp.
You can certainly build your own scooter, something called a “custom” scooter. The cool thing about a custom scooter is that there isn't another one like yours! But parents, keep in mind that a "custom" will generally cost 2 to 3 times more than the full one.
What kind of use do you want to do with your scooter? Ride in “Street” or ride in the “park / skatepark”?
Younger or novice riders usually start by riding in the entrance to the course or on the street, but they don't do a lot of tricks or jumps (yet). This type of riding can be done with any scooter.
On the other hand, as riders gain confidence and start working on tricks and jumps, the rider's demands increase. This is where Scootersk8 comes in !!!
Bigger and stronger wheels, stronger chainrings (decks) and clamps will benefit the rider who wants to improve here.
Street riders who stay away from parks and do most of their tricks and jumps in various places like parking lots, schools, open terrain. Much more shock is inflicted on these types of riders. It is then necessary to look for larger and more robust scooters. Conversely, park riders will want a lighter scooter to improve their jumps and tricks.
What type and size of scooter parts should I take?
Younger people will not perform the same tricks and jumps that taller and more experienced riders will do, so bigger and heavier scooters will not be necessary for this younger clientele. Shorter handlebars, 100mm wheels, smaller deck.
Intermediate, teen and taller riders will opt for 110mm wheels, a higher and wider handlebar (bar) and a slightly larger chainring.
Taller riders and aggressive riders will want big wheels, a large chainring (deck) and taller oversized T-bar (bar). These scooters are made to withstand blows.
