What is a stunt scooter?

A stunt scooter is designed with tricks and stunts in mind. The T shape handlebars are fixed, the wheels are small and the materials it is made from are strong but lightweight. 

These features all help the stunt scooter do what it is designed to do, tricks and stunts. 

The small wheels are great for short bursts of acceleration in confined spaces, like skateparks. If you are looking for speed then you might want to look at a scooter with bigger wheels. A stunt scooter will likely have metal core wheels to help withstand tricks better than plastic ones.

The fixed height handlebars mean that there is no weakness through the bars. This fixing and the durable, lightweight materials help to keep the scooter strong enough for tricks and jumps.

Stunt scooter vs regular scooter - differences

In brief, a stunt scooter is designed to be strong and able to handle landings, tricks and short acceleration. A regular scooter is designed more for comfort and speed, with adjustable handlebars that also fold, large wheels and a wider or longer deck.

​​​​What's the best stunt scooter brand for beginners in 2021?

Over the years MGP has been seen to consistently progress the sport and was one of the first brands to create stunt scooters. With a long history comes a lot of well known pros such as Ryan Williams and Terry Price. With time comes more competition as brands such as Blunt Scooters, Blazer Pro scooters and more recently established brands such as Invert scooters have popped up. This constant progression and competition has been great for the sport, creating a fantastic level of designs and quality in 2021. For us, based on feedback from our customers scooters for kids under the age of 8, MGP is the most popular due to the solid builds and flashy designs. For kids over the age of 8, Blunt scooters takes the win due to the best selling range of stunt scooters ever sold, Blunt prodigy s8's. This then leads us to define what are the best stunt scooters for each age?

The best stunt scooter for teenagers

The best stunt scooter for teenagers is a tough one to call. We have settled on the Invictus Clayton Lindley Sig by Root Industries

This scooter is 85 cm from the floor to the top of the handlebars, which should comfortably fit a teenage rider. It has a high modulus alloy bar, which is stronger than aluminium bars. This strength and the flat profile wheels for grip and landing will help teenagers cruise and trick their way around the skate park.

What is the best stunt scooter for tall riders?

If your kid has had a growth spurt then you might be looking for the best stunt scooter for tall riders. To work out the correct height for the scooter you should measure where the top of the handlebars reaches the rider’s waist. 

For tall riders, we like the KOS Series 7 by Blunt. This scooter comes in at 90 cm tall and is suited to riders 160 cm and above. It has features making it suited to intermediate and advanced riders who want something out of the box and ready to go. Features include durable handgrips, 2 bolt forged clamp raised front profile, tri-bearing wheels with teal PU for a smooth and responsive ride, nylon front plate and nylon brake system.
