A scooter deck spacer keeps the wheel in place
Are your pro scooter deck and wheel not compatible? Is your wheel not centered anymore? Don't worry, deck spacers can properly help you out.
Deck spacers on pro scooters cover the extra space between the deck and the wheel. This ensures that the wheel stays centered and that there is no shaking back and forth. In addition, they ensure that the axle and wheel assembly is stiff and solid. Some scooter deck spacers are also designed to hold the scooter brakes in place.
Deck spacers can be brand and model specific. Therefore, it is important to check up on whether they match when you need new spacers. You can find information on size and compatibility in the product description and specifications for each product.
Deck spacers are installed through the wheel axle and should be placed on both sides of the wheel. The standard size for a wheel axle on a pro scooter is 8 mm, but it can still vary a lot. Therefore, make sure to check the product description.
Also note, that most deck spacers are sold separately, and you must buy two pieces to complete a set.
