What is a Stunt Scooter?
A stunt scooter is designed specifically to withstand a lot of punishment. You can do jumps, tricks and stunts on it, and use it at a skate park.
Although no scooter is covered under warranty for use at a skate park (as the stress put on the item would be limitless), some help is still offered if a part breaks within the first 3 months of purchase. Generally, the manufacturer will not replace entire scooters that become faulty or damaged, but will cover replacement componants.
Extreme scooters generally don’t feature a folding mechanism or adjustable handlebar height (as seen on some models for young kids) as it weakens the strength of the setup. Instead, they generally have a one-piece handlebar which is much stronger. They usually need to be assembled by placing the handlebars onto the stem of the fork and tightening the clamp which holds both parts together.
Extreme scooters also tend to be heavier than a folding scooter. This is because parts are reinforced for strength, or more parts are present to strengthen the entire build.
You can upgrade most stunt scooter components, but customers should check that parts will fit before purchasing. Feel free to contact us for help on 01794 830005 or email@example.com, as we're always happy to advise!
Extreme scooters are frequently more expensive than a recreational scooter. Prices can vary from £65 - £250+, but it's not money for nothing. You're paying for a scooter that's more robust than the norm and ready for a pounding!
Which one is right for me?
There are a wide range of stunt scooters available, here are some important things to keep in mind when choosing yours.
Ability and Age
Most extreme scooters are designed for any ability level and suitable for ages 7 years and above.
Our standard retailer warranty lasts for 3 months. Once a scooter is used, we will only replace faulty parts (not the whole unit). This is because it's nearly impossible to ascertain how hard a scooter has been ridden (even in a short amount of time), so it's not seen as appropriate to completely refund or exchange the whole product.
Neither the retailer or manufacturer will cover general wear and tear (for example, replacing worn wheels). A manufacturer will very rarely refund an item unless it’s out of stock.
For further information please see individual product pages or our FAQ section.
Does you really need an extreme scooter?
It depends, what are you planning to do with it? If they want to use it for tricks or down a skatepark we’d absolutely recommend getting an extreme scooter as they’re much stronger and more durable than recreational scooters.
What are the differences between cheaper and more expensive models?
Higher-end models tend to be much stronger. They’re forged with stronger metals which tend to also be lighter. Wheels often have a metal core, and most top-end scooters will come with a compression system to ensure a smooth ride.
I need some assistance fitting a new / replacement part.
Not a problem! We’d recommend having a look at our Youtube account - www.youtube.com/skatescouk - as we’ve got loads of instructional videos which should solve your problem.
What about weight limits?
Most scooters will have a 100kg limit however scooters designed for younger riders will have a lower limit. The product description will give exact information on the product and it’s limits, target age group etc
