The story of the nineball starts in our La Jolla backyard in 1993. At the time our house consisted of a bunch of good friends, a halfpipe, pool table, ping pong table and shaping room all just across the street from some nice smooth hills down to the reefs. Being that the house had all these fine features, it became quite the hangout spot. One of our friends from Hawaii who used to call people “nineballs” all the time in a friendly razzing sort of way, called up on the phone one day to see what was going on at the house. Of course we were all “studying” so he got the answering machine and said “Whats going on over there at Sector 9?” which to him and us meant a house full of nineballs. At the same time one of the house favorite hill cruisers, a snowboard-turned-skateboard, was stolen from Northbird in La Jolla and a couple replacement boards were almost finished and just needed the finishing touches of a logo. The message on the machine was heard and the name not only had a nice ring to it but seemed fitting as well so it stuck.

We Carry The best selection of complete Scooters in the Bay Area!

Envy built the Envy Prodigy Complete Scooter S4 from the ground up with its highest quality scooter components, from the deck up to the bars. Built around a 4.75W x 19.50L integrated Envy Prodigy deck and headset with an 82.5 degree headtube, the Envy Prodigy S4 was built on a firm foundation, making it one of our better selling complete scooters. Featuring 20.50W X 24.50H standard chromoly steel bars, the Prodigy Complete Scooter S4 utilizes IHC compression and a Prodigy double clamp to compress the bars onto the forks. Envy 110mm wheels with ABEC 9 bearings roll on Envy CNC forged aluminum forks with built-in IHC compression.

The Envy Prodigy S4 utilizes IHC compression, which is built directly into the forks, eliminating the need to purchase forks and compression separately. IHC compression utilizes a compression bolt in the top of the fork that compresses the fork shim onto the crown race of the headset, creating a tight headset seal. IHC complete scooters are geared towards intermediate or pro riders and are perfect for either street or park riding.
