      These are the parts and terms most associated with stunt scooters and will help you identify what needs replacing or fixing when things go wrong on your stunt scooter.

      You are not the first person to be baffled by HIC, IHC, SCS and ICS, we will create video on content that goes into more depth with these terms. 

      Diagram of stunt scooter parts | Select Scooters

      Axle Spacers - These are small cylindrical pieces of metal which allow stunt scooter wheels to sit flush within the frok or rear of the deck in order to reduce the amount of friction and therefore rattling of a scooter.

      Bars (handlebars) - These are the part of a stunt scooter that extend out of the deck and allow the rider to hold and twist the stunt scooter, similar functionality to those that are on a bike handlebars

      Bar Ends - These are the pieces of metal or plastic inserted into the end of your bars to prevent damage to yourself and your bars from damage. As exposed metal can pose a potential risk.

      Brake - The brake on stunt scooters can be found on the rear of the scooter, above the wheel, these allow the rider to place their foot over the back wheel and slow down depending on the amount of pressure they place upon the break.

      Compression Kit - This is what holds the key parts of your scooter together, there are 3 main types of compression HIC, IHC, and SCS, we will go into them in more detail, essentially it is the system implemented for your forks connected with your deck and bars.

       Deck/Footplate - This is the part a rider stands on and can come in many shapes, styles and sizes.

      Double Clamp - A double clamp is a two bolted system which wraps around the bottom of your bars, by tightening the bolts on the clamp each one a turn at a time the clamp tightens around the bar and top of the forks to keep the bars in place on the scooter.

      Forks - The forks are situated at the front of the scooter and hold the front wheel in place while simultaneously linking the deck bars and clamp together, similar to how forks on a bike work.

      Front and Rear Axles - Axles are bolts through the front and back wheels which allow them to stay in place, similar to a an axle on a car.

      Grip Tape - This is the sandpaper like sheet that is placed on the top of the deck allowing the scooter rider to grip their deck and perform tricks even in wet conditions.

      Handlebar Grips - These are the rubber grips that allow the rider to grip their bars with their hands, these can also be found on BMX bikes.

      HIC - This stands for hidden internal compression, a hic compression is when a HIC is secured over a HIC fork. This is when an oversized bar, clamp and fork work together, the clamp holds the bars tight around the fork and HIC kit allowing the scooter to fit, last and work correctly. HIC is most commonly used with custom stunt scooters as riders tend to be a bit heavier and require a more solid compression solution without sacrificing too much weight.

      We will make a video explaining this one soon, as it is far easier to demonstrate in video format.

      IHC -  Inernal hidden compression, is a smaller lighter version of IHC compression and requires standard size bars to operate optimally on a stunt scooter. This was developed by Blunt scoooters and now, most off the shelf complete scooters utilise this compression system.

      Metal Core  Wheels - These are designed to last a lot longer than their plastic counterparts and are usually made from aluminium in various designs. The standard wheel sizes are 100mm and 110mm, what size of wheel you choose is up to rider tastes and the size that you froks allow, it is always best to choose 110mm if you are not sure as this is the industry standard.

      Plastic Core Stunt Scooter Wheels - These are seen on the cheaper models as they have a tendency to snap if any sort of pressure is placed upon them. If the rider is quite light and not leaving the ground, these wheels are great.

      Quad Clamp - A quad clamp has 4 bolts and secures the forks to the bars without actually touching, this is the SCS system.

      Video format is the best way to demonstrate this

      SCS - This is the standard compression system, this works by securing the clamp to the forks with a star nut over the forks and then fitting the bars in to the top part of the clamp, with SCS the bars cannot have a slit or the system will not work correctly. You Can remove the effectiveness of a slit by using a SCS adapter or bar sleeve.

      Video format is the best way to demonstrate this

      Stunt Pegs - These are cylindrical pieces of metal attached to the wheels to allow the rider to perform grinds or 'stunts'

      Threadless Forks - These are the higher end forks and do not have a thread.

      Threadless Headset - This is a non sealed removable bearing which allows the stunt scooter to spin 360 degrees freely. These are similar to the ones found in BMX and mountain bikes
