Team Test - VertX Parts
VertX and they're amazing new parts hit our shores a couple of months ago, and I just had to snatch them up. The Beautiful deck design and gorgeous wheels meant that I had to grab me some and see what all the fuss was about! I've been riding these parts for around 3 months now, so here's my thoughts.

At skates.co.uk, we are dedicated to following the latest skate trends and providing the best possible products to feed the growing market. The biggest boom so far has got to be the rise and rise of stunt scootering and, if you're not already familiar with this fast-paced extreme sport, let us give you the low-down.
You're probably already familiar with scooters. It's hard not to be – They're everywhere. Every kid seems to have one and for the few who don't, it's at the top of the birthday/Christmas/begging list. Some kids are happy just to use scooters as a commuter tool, to make the journey to school and beyond that little bit more fun. But for many, that's just where their love of skating began. It's the skate park that holds the biggest thrill for the majority of scooter fanatics. In a nutshell, stunt scooters are made to fill this niche. Stronger and built to take a beating, they'll take the flack of jumping and grinding without buckling beneath your feet.
Key brands that currently rule the park are Madd Gear (MGP), Slamm, Grit, JD Bug, Razor, Roces and Crisp, with an array of models to each brand, including the ever popular JD Bug Pro Extreme, Slamm Rage and Outbreak, MGP Pro Team and Nitro, Grit Extremist, Razor Ultro Pro Lo, Roces Kook and Crisp Ultima.
All of the scooters sold by skates.co.uk are the best possibly quality (we wouldn't stock anything less) and extreme scooters are made to be stronger than most. But remember, no scooter is indestructible and can break under extreme pressure. For this reason, no scooter is covered under warranty for extreme use. Don't let that spoil the fun, though. Just remember to check out the 'Scooter Parts' section of the skates.co.uk website when you need replacements!Kids Scooters
