Freestyle scootering has come a long way over the past decade. There is more choice than ever, which can make choosing your first complete scooter a little bit overwhelming. Here are our top 5 picks to help you find the perfect scooter for the skatepark!
The Madd Gear Kick Extreme is one of our favourite complete scooters for beginner riders around age 8-12. Its parts and performance can't be beat for the price, and it is available in five awesome colours. It features a 4.5" wide deck which is a bit wider than most other scooters in the same price range. This gives the rider more support and stability when landing big jumps.
The Envy Prodigy lineup has been one of our best sellers for over a decade! It is perfect for entry and intermediate level riders age 12 and up. This scooter doesn't hold back - featuring a durable forged head tube, 120mm alloy core wheels, and alloy Reaper-style handlebar. The fit and finish of Envy parts is second to none, making this scooter super easy to maintain and upgrade. Also available in a street version, and a mini!
The Ethic Erawan V2 is a skatepark rider's dream. This complete is built with high-end aftermarket parts for the ultimate in lightweight performance. The Erawan V2 deck is nimble and easy to maneuver; the Legion V2 fork is sturdy and has a very direct feel, and the Dryade V2 handlebars are strong and lightweight thanks to their alloy construction with forged gussets. Perfect for riders age 11 and up.
Much like the Kick Extreme, the MGX P2 complete scooter from Madd Gear punches above its weight. It features a lightweight deck with a fluted extrusion to increase stiffness, and strategically place cutouts to reduce weight while maintaining strength and comfort.
The Envy Colt is the Prodigy's younger sibling. It is scaled down slightly for riders aged 7-10, and features some upgraded parts over previous Colt models. It has durable chromoly steel handlebars, and an Envy P2 alloy fork, making it a durable choice that will last years to come (as long as you keep it dialed!).
