Just like other action sports, there are different riding styles or types in scootering. They are usually referred to as park, street, and dirt. Some companies build and optimize their scooters for performance based on the type of terrain or type of tricks that are going to be thrown down. Pro scooters, kick scooters, trick scooters, freestyle scooters, or whatever you like to call them – these can all be called pro scooters.
How to Choose the Right Size Scooter
You can ride a scooter of any size, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy, comfortable or fun. For your everyday needs, a scooter that is the right size for your body is going to provide you with the most enjoyable experience. Here are a few tips on choosing the right size scooter.
For Beginners: Never choose larger scooter handlebars for your child thinking that he’ll “grow into it.” A scooter that’s too large is difficult to handle and may make it difficult for your child to ride. This can destroy his confidence and even lead to accidents.
Ultimately, it comes down to your comfort – how does the scooter feel when you take it for a test ride? Is it comfortable? Easy to control? If so, then you’ve probably got the right fit.
