First, let's tackle the question - What is a Pro Scooter and What Should You Look for in a Pro Scooter?
Are you new to the world of pro scooters and wondering what they're all about? A beginner pro scooter, also referred to as a stunt scooter, is a specialized scooter designed for entry-level riders who want to explore the exciting world of freestyle tricks and stunts. These scooters are tailored to provide stability, durability, and maneuverability, making them ideal for those starting their journey in the world of pro scootering. If you're looking to dive into the world of beginner pro scooters, it's important to understand what sets them apart and what factors to consider when making a purchase.

When searching for a beginner pro scooter, there are key features that you should prioritize to ensure a suitable and enjoyable riding experience. Pay close attention to the deck, which serves as the platform for your riding. Look for a non-folding deck made from sturdy materials like aluminum, as they provide the necessary strength and durability for beginners to practice their tricks. Consider the size and shape of the deck, as it influences stability and control during rides and stunts. Additionally, focus on the correct handlebar height to ensure it will accommodate the rider's height, providing optimal comfort and control. Read all about selecting the correct handlebar height here.

In addition to the deck and handlebars, other components significantly impact the performance of a beginner pro scooter. Wheels and bearings are crucial for a smooth and seamless ride. Opt for wheels made from high-quality polyurethane material, as they offer excellent grip and shock absorption, ensuring a comfortable experience while riding on various surfaces. Look for scooters equipped with reliable bearings, such as ABEC-rated bearings, which contribute to the scooter's speed and overall performance. Finally, consider the braking system of the scooter, typically a rear fender brake to ensure safe and effective stopping power when needed.
