What is a Stunt Scooter?

Folding Scooters Are For Scooter Stunts & Tricks

No! Stunt scooters are non-folding, stunt scooters are fixed scooters, they do not fold! we recommend not to buy someone a folding scooter for any type of tricks & stunts. The folding mechanisms create weak points. Folding scooters are really only suitable for recreational riders and younger children who are learning to ride scooters for balance and general fun.

Complete stunt scooters are normally recommended for ages 8+ but some smaller high end scooters for Kids 6+ are now available. Stunt scooters are much stronger and lighter than folding scooters with stronger components to cope with the demand of a wide range of cool and impressive tricks and stunts.

Stunt Scooter Wheels

Stunt scooters generally have strong alloy wheels with a diameter of 100mm to 125mm, will have better cartridge bearings, better sealing and roll faster and be more durable. Alloy scooter wheels also look damn good, it's the ultimate scooter pimp accessories.

Stunt Scooter Decks

Lighter and reinforced in areas that take the stress, normally made from aluminum the average width of stunt scooter decks are generally 4” to 4.5” normally some type of concave (around 3 degree) Stunt scooter decks normally have internal headsets which fit better and are much stronger than bog press in cups with unsleaed looseball bearings. The internal / Integrated scooters bearings are normally sealed and higher quality which roller smoother.

Stunt Scooter FLEX Brakes

Flex Brakes Spring or Springless

Scooter flex brakes is a non-spring brake. Entry level Scooters will normally have spring brakes’s although this is find for entry level scooters it's not a good idea ona stunt scooter, the brake will rattle after some use, this becomes very annoying and you will hear the word being shouted “my scooter is not dialled” more on that later!

Stunt Scooter Compression Systems

Compressions systems help keep your scooter dialled. It keeps the bars, deck and headset at the correct tension so no ‘head shake’ or play can be noticed when turning the bars or riding the scooters.

  • Standard Compression System (SCS)

The best and strongest scooter compression system so perfect for stunt scooters.  The scooter SCS clamp comes into play here normally with 4 bolts and a cap with a bolt which screws into the fork and the bolt is used to tighten and take up any headset shake. An easy to install clamping system that provides an external component (SCS Clamp) to clamp the bars into the top and bolt the forks into the bottom.

SCS Scooter Compression

  •  Internal / Inverted Compression (ICS)

ICS compression has to be the lightest compression for scooter around. It uses a long bolt (ics bolt) standard size scooter bars (31.8) with a thread less scooter fork & headset. A starnut Installed in the scooter Bars and a compression bolt is then screwed up through the forks into the starnut Best features of this compression system is that it’s very light and inexpensive. But it is not very strong and the bad points are you need to remove the wheel to tighten this lot up which can be time consuming and annoying as it probably will need doing often.

Internal Compression ICS

  • Hidden Internal (HIC)

The most used compression system, the first best compression system around for all the right reasons! No need to take of the wheel to adjust. The HIC compression system is Threadless fork with a starnut a shim over the forks with a top cap and bolt. Then this is tightened until any head shake is gone but bearings are still smooth. That’s it! This system requires HIC bars with a slit to fit which are larger in diameter to fit over the sleeve, bars are normally 34.9mm

  • Integrated Headset Compression (IHC)

Similar to HIC compression but standard bars are used not oversized HIC Bars this compression system in moving its way onto more entry level stunt scooters around £100

Hic Compression

What is a Dialled Scooter?

A dialled scooter is a phrase you might here when asking someone "what scooter would you like?" Dialled simply means it all works good, with no head shake, smooth headset bearings, no rattle in flex brake, no play in wheels bearings and so on! It simply means it is ready to ride hard!
