What is a Pro scooter

Also known as stunt scooters or trick scooters, pro scooters are technically a special type of tw0 wheel scooter. They are generally built to a higher quality and are designed for stunt or trick riding. The main feature of a pro scooter is the wide “T-bar” handlebars. These give greater stability when riding on skatepark ramps, and allow the rider to perform various tricks and flips. If your kid is serious about scooting (or would like to be), or if they have a social group of friends who are “into” scooting, then almost certainly a pro scooter is what they need.
