Scooters have been around for years, but recently they’ve become more popular both for trick and stunt riding and for commuting. Whether you’re looking for a commuter scooter or a pro scooter, there are a number of good scooter brands and styles to choose from. Regular, commuting scooters are fantastic, but pro scooters cover the gamut of trick, competition, and skatepark scooters.
Selecting the coolest scooters of 2020 is based on the performance, type of scooter, pricing, and key features. Today we are going to discuss how we chose the coolest scooters and our list of top 10 cool scooters of 2020.
Benefits of Cool Pro Scooters
Pro scooters have a wide range of uses, which makes them one of the best scooter types you can buy. The benefits of cool pro scooters include:
Performing Tricks and Stunts
Cool trick scooters will enable you to perform a wide variety of tricks at the skatepark. Not all scooters are designed for trick riding, so you need to purchase a pro scooter specifically if you want to perform tricks.
A Wide Variety of Options
No matter if you’re a beginner or a pro rider, coolest pro scooters give you a wide variety of styles and sizes to choose from. You can buy a complete scooter or buy parts to make a truly custom ride.
Types of Cool Scooters
There are two main types of pro scooters; complete scooters and custom scooters.
Complete Cool Scooters
Also known as kick, trick, freestyle, and pro scooters, completes are exactly as they sound. These scooters are ready to ride right out of the box. They don’t require much if any, modification but you can modify them as you want. They are fantastic for beginners, pros, and casual riders alike who want to street ride or perform tricks and stunts.
More experienced riders often build their own scooters. But even beginners can build their own if they can’t find a complete that suits their needs. You can choose from a range of different parts including:
- Grip tape
- And more!
By exploring the ranges of high-quality brands, like Sacrifice Scooters, you can build a true, one-of-a-kind ride that suits all your needs.
Cool Scooter Pricing
Remember, you get what you pay for! And this is definitely the case when it comes to good scooters.
Scooters Under $50
While some pro scooters are inexpensive, they are generally lower quality. Scooters like these are found in shopping centres and department stores that don’t specialise in scooter construction. They tend to be flimsy and break easily, which means you’ll have to continually replace them. This ultimately costs you a lot more in the long run.
Scooters between $50 and $100
Scooters in this range are generally good scooters with better quality parts than cheaper brands. However, like cheaper scooters, they are likely going to breakdown a lot faster than a more expensive pro scooter.
Scooters Over $100
The best and coolest pro scooters sit in this range. While it might feel like a lot of money to pay at once. These scooters are made with high-quality parts and materials. This ensures they last longer than cheaper scooters. You can also change worn out parts to prolong the life of the scooter, while cheaper scooters don’t have these options.
Key Features of Cool Scooters
When choosing the coolest scooters of 2020, we took the following key features into consideration:
Cool pro scooter decks come in a variety of different designs. This allows you to select the style, length, width, and concavity to match your needs and preferences. Your deck is the central part of your scooter, so it is essential that it fits your riding style. Don’t ignore deck size and width as this can affect the performance of the scooter.
Grips are integral to a good, pro scooter, especially if you’re a trick rider. Trick riding requires a good grip to perform – there’s nothing worse than losing grip on your scooter when doing a trick!
Good scooters will come in a range of bar sizes to suit your riding style and height. You should never use bars that are too low or too high as this can make it super uncomfortable to ride or safely perform tricks. Bars should reach around hip/waist height. You should also have bars that are at least as wide as your shoulders. Slightly narrower bars are good for trick riding, but never go too small or too wide.
Good scooters are lightweight, while cheaper scooters are usually heavy. Weight affects your ability to perform certain tricks. A scooter that’s too heavy will be difficult to ride long distances and difficult to perform stunts with.
