Which one is right for me?
There are a wide range of decks available for every type of rider, here are some important things to consider when choosing yours.
- Money - You don't want to spend more than is necessary, however the quality of a product can be discerned by the cost. The higher the cost, the better quality you are likely to get. Higher end scooter decks feature a stronger welding and light weight design.
- Skill Level - All scooters have either a one-piece or two-piece deck. Whilst two-piece decks benefit from being foldable, they're not as strong as a one-piece deck. If you're not interested in doing any jumps, tricks or stunts, a two-piece deck will be more than sufficient. However if you're more of a daredevil, we'd highly recommend having a one-piece deck as it'll produce less wobble and be far more durable.
- Size ﾖ Deck length depends on the make and model of scooter, most will be around 50cm with an average width of 10cm.
Ability and Age
All decks are suitable for use with both recreational and extreme scooter riders at any ability level and at any age.
You will need to notify us of any major defects when you first receive your product. There is typically a 90 day warranty on parts, this does not cover normal wear and tear. Once a product has been used the supplier will not usually replace the entire item. We will look at this on a case by case basis to determine the nature of defect or damage and make every effort to provide the best overall customer experience.
