Three tricks to keep your scooter in top shape
Summertime is scooter time! Check out these three tricks to make sure that your scooter is in top shape for those long and sweet summer sessions.
The sun is out, the sky is blue and the temperature is well above 20 degrees. For many, the next months means summer vacation, so what better time than now to take your riding to the next level.
But before you hit your local skate park or favorite street spot it's important to make sure that your scooter is in 100 percent top shape. That is if you want to get the full potential out of your summer sessions.
A proper grip
So let's start from the top. Grips play an important part when it comes to doing tricks and landings. A pair of fresh grips will give you more control over the scooter and the confidence to push yourself because you know that your hands won't slip.
Scooter grips are also a great way to personalize your scooter and stand out from the crowd. Find the grips that fit your style and personality here. Check out the video above to learn our “secret trick” on how to get your new grips on in less than a minute.
Flat spots - never again!
Unless you are a pro with a sponsor like River or Proto a wheel with flat spots means one thing, money out of your pocket. But luckily our team rider Jonas Kjær shows you how to avoid flat spots in the video right above.
Keep riding with a fresh pair of wheels
A fresh and decent pair of wheels are crucial for your performance as a scooter rider. A worn down wheel makes it harder to accelerate and to maintain the speed and reduce the stability of the scooter when you are doing tricks.
Furthermore, it makes it harder to keep your balance when you land after doing jumps or doing air tricks. We always have a huge selection of wheels from all the strongest brands. Changing wheels is quite easy to learn how in the video above.
