If in the old days scooters were not a particularly diverse vehicle, today a huge number of different options are on sale – urban, children’s, three-wheeled and stunt. Before you start performing various tricks on a scooter, you should first choose the most reliable model.
It is quite easy to get confused in the variety of similar products available in sports stores. If this will be your first stunt scooter, then we have written this article mainly for your benefit. In this review of the best stunt scooters of the year, we are not only going to analyze the performance of the selected models, but also tell you exactly what to look for when buying this product. Let’s start with this.
How to choose the right stunt scooter in 2022?
In principle, according to experienced riders, tricks can also be performed on an ordinary scooter, but its resource will not last long, as it will fall apart quickly enough. One of the key characteristics for a stunt unit is its weight. Too light products will not be able to give the required inertia, too heavy will be clumsy. The average weight of a stunt scooter is about 4 kg. The choice of the most suitable weight directly depends on the style of riding. For beginners and riders who prefer the street, the lightest models are suitable – within 3-3.5 kg. To perform jumps, you will need more massive devices. In the production of park scooters, heavier components are used, providing high reliability and absolute control over the situation. Over time, the rider begins to feel the mass of the scooter even when performing the most difficult tricks.
The diameter of the wheels provides maneuverability and mobility of products. For a beginner, wheels with a diameter of 110-126 mm will be optimal, for a more experienced rider, you can purchase products with smaller wheels. The diameter has a direct impact on the top speed of the scooter and the turning radius. Be sure to pay attention to the discs – they come with spokes made of plastic or metal, as well as with an iron core. They differ from each other in the level of rigidity. The higher this parameter, the higher the speed will be able to accelerate, remove unwanted vibrations and reduce noise when riding. The most hard drives are considered to be cast aluminum, but they also have the most significant mass. Plastic discs weigh a little, significantly reduce the weight of the scooter itself, but wear out extremely quickly.
Be sure to pay attention to the shape of the steering wheel – it can be of three types: in the form of the letters T or Y, as well as the original Bat-Wing design. The T-shaped steering wheel is characterized by low weight, simple design and a high level of safety. The Y-shaped handlebar has excellent endurance, the load is distributed on the steering rack as evenly as possible. The Bat-Wing is the most durable design that essentially duplicates the technology used in BMX bikes. The jumping ability of the scooter depends on the height of the steering wheel – the smaller it is, the easier it is to lift the product into the air.
When choosing models to include in our review of the best stunt scooters, we were guided by all the parameters discussed above, but some other factors were also taken into account. In particular, user reviews were taken into account, especially the most experienced riders, the choice was also influenced by the price-quality ratio of the product. We tried to include not the most expensive products in the review, so that most of our readers can find the products within their means. Now is the time to start looking at the useful characteristics of each product that we have included in the review.
