Stunt Scooter Buyers Guide
Buying a Stunt Scooter for someone can be confusing, at first glance they can all look the same and there are many models to choose from, they start from as little as £40 and go to as much as £300 or more for custom setups.
"We stock a wide variety of stunt pro scooters suitable for all sizes and ages, for commuting, riding around town and freestyle trick use - in and out of skate parks."
Things to Consider when buying a Scooter
Price - As with most things you get what you pay for, the higher the price the higher quality and range of components are made available. If you want something basic for commuting you do not need to spend £100+ on a stunt scooter for example. If you are looking to progress into the bigger tricks side of things then spending that little extra on those lighter or stronger parts can really benefit your riding and aid progression in the sport. we now stock a complete range from beginner to pro level complete so finding the right scooter for you should be easy on our site but if you struggle get in touch by either email or phone.
Rider Skills - If you are going back and forward to school and are hopping on and off curbs a long the way you do not required something massively high end and expensive. Try to buy slightly above your rider level to allow for progression but do not go from owning a £40 scooter to a £400 scooter overnight.
We do also stock the "best of the best" components that most of our team at atb test and ride on their own scooters so if you are looking for that scooter that is the best you can get then ask one of our team here and we will steer you in the right direction such as a park scooter or street scooter.
Scooter height and weight - The very basic aluminium folding scooters are much shorter in bar height and also in weight, these are ideal for much younger riders and for those who want maximum portability from a scooter. Stunt scooters tend to use a fixed handlebar height so depending on the riders height you may need to cut your bars down to a more suitable height.
Street and Park,
So you may here your little ones going on about these two types of scooters as maybe a christmas or birthday present, basically a park scooter is for those riders that want to send those big spin tricks and air combo's we stock so many parts and can make up the perfect custom that suits you. a street scooter on the other hand is for a rider that wants to be both technical and able to hit those big rails and stair sets on the streets and in the skatepark, we normally find street riders using wider decks and taller bars to suit the riding style.
We do cut down bars at atb but, some bars are not sutible due to tapered constructions on some models, also deck modifications can be carried out for a small fee, so if we stock that deck that you have your eyes on that you really want but its just too long we can shorten it for you.
Here at atbshop we stock a massive range of scooters which all have diffent shapes and sizes if you have any queries get in touch and one of our experts will be happy to help you.
