Stunt scooters are extremely durable and are designed specifically for stunts and tricks. The inspiration came from the conventional scooters which are also knows as the traditional scooters. However, the stunt scooters really kicked of when people started doing tricks on the traditional scooters and the scooters started to give in and break as they couldn't endure what was thrown at them.
What Makes a Stunt Scooter... A Stunt Scooter
The shape and design of the parts is done in a way to prevent the scooter from breaking and allowing the rider to perform certain tricks. Most stunt scooters can't be folded and their height cannot be adjusted as these qualities make the scooter less sturdy.
Materials play a big part in defying a stunt scooter. Most stunt scooters are build with either aluminium, steel or titanium. These materials are proven to be extremely durable. Many people would love their scooter to be super strong and super light however, that does not always work. Most complete, out of the box scooters are made from the more affordable materials such as aluminium and steel. However, if you are looking to invest into more expensive parts that are made from materials such as titanium, your scooter will become much lighter and stronger.
The stunt scooters that are a little more expensive tend to come with compression systems such as SCS, IHC, and ICS. These compression systems make the scooter construction even stronger and keeps your scooter dialed for longer.
Complete or Custom Stunt Scooter?
This question is actually a lot easier to answer than you think. In our opinion if you are just a beginner who is looking to start their journey with scooting. Your best option is going with a complete and depending on whether you are planning on learning tricks or not, then you can decided if you are going to go with a scooter that has compression or one that doesn't but we would strongly recommend scooters with compression.
However, if you have been scooting for quite some time and you are looking for a scooter that will match your exact style of riding in every single way. A custom scooter is the way to go as you can pick and choose each part making sure everything that you need is on it.
