New to Pro Scooters?

As Scooter Riders, we know that this can be a little daunting, especially if this is your first time looking for a Pro Scooter. Don’t worry–we’re here to help!

So what exactly is a "Pro Scooter"?

A pro scooter is just another name for a trick scooter. However, pro scooters tend to be a more durable version of your regular kick scooter.

  • Kick Scooter

    • Adjustable Bar Height
    • Foldable Mechanism
    • Not intended for doing tricks
    • Generally used for transportation and spec’d for lightweight leisure riding
  • Pro Scooter

    • Fixed and larger bar height for improved strength as well as rider comfort
    • Larger, reinforced deck Deck/Bar Size for comfort and functionality (more grind space)
    • Made for freestyle riding/doing tricks
    • Overall Stronger Construction for increased performance, made to withstand considerable wear and tear

Completes vs Customs

Another common question we get, is what is the difference between a out of the box Pro Scooter, and a fully spec'd out custom build.

  • Pro Level Complete

    • The most cost effective and an easy entry-level option for new scooter riders
    • The scooter will arrive 90% pre assembled and typically requires just one tool to finish (often an allen wrench, which may be included in your box
    • A mix of performance parts and affordability
    • Different manufacturers offer a variety of Pro Completes that will to suit any type of riding or individual scooter rider’s budget, with guaranteed compatibility
  • Custom Build

    • Almost always more expensive, but provides the option for every single component to be chosen by the rider
    • Maximum Customizability
    • Allows for the introduction of unique colors, part sizing, and performance to a rider’s exact specification
    • Built with Aftermarket Pro-Level Components
    • We recommend contacting us via email or phone before purchasing all parts to determine if they will be compatible in size and preferred riding style and the right size.

Park vs Street

In the Pro Scooter world completes are now designed to cater towards a riders personal riding style! Not sure what style you are? We're here to help!

  • Park Completes

    • Usually lighter weight
    • Smaller in overall Size for Park Style Tricks (flips, over the head rotations of the scooter, etc)
    • Often made with Aluminum/Titanium components to maximize strength while minimizing weight
  • Street Completes

    • Usually Larger in Size and heavier in weight
    • Designed for Street Style Tricks (grinds, smooth control, high-impact drops , etc)
    • Typically Favored by stronger and/or more seasoned riders


Arguably the most important factor in a pro scooter is the size. For the simplest approach we can look at just two parts - the bars and the deck. Luckily, if you’re purchasing a complete scooter, the dimensions between the two should be proportionate. For a complete we can simplify and just look at bar height.

  • Incorrect Bar Height

    A scooter handlebar should be anywhere from mid thigh to just below the belly button. The waistline is our general recommendation.

  • Correct Bar Height

    You do not want to leave the bars too tall thinking the rider will grow into them. This can cause more injuries when riding and potentially hitting their face on the bar ( img, kid with missing teeth, black eye and way too tall bars


As a family owned and operated business we understand providing quality and safety to your family without breaking the bank.

  • If you are just starting out and aren’t on the tall side {5’6+ ? } then the most bang for your buck is the $150-$200 range.

  • Custom Builds start at $400+ and can exceed $1000.


A big concern for any activity or new hobby as a parent, is avoiding injury.

Where To Ride

You got your fresh new pro scooter and you’re dying to ride?! Here are some tips to get you started.

  • If the rider has no previous experience in action sports, they should not start out in the skatepark. This can be dangerous for them and other skatepark users before they have the knowledge of not only their own skills but what to expect from other riders in the park. We recommend going on some rides around the neighborhood together and practicing basics in the driveway.

  • Once they are jumping around a little and you think they are ready to start trying some ramps, google some local skateparks to find obstacles that aren’t too intense. The review section will let you know if the skate park is family friendly or has a rough crowd. Another good way to find a family friendly skatepark is if safety gear is required and enforced. This tends to get rid of the riff raff.
