About Pro Scooters
The second you saw that dude at the skate park do an acid-drop pole-grab fakie bank transfer backflip no-hander, you knew pro scooters were ready for prime time. Pro scooters are made from the same lightweight, super-strong metals and metal hybrids used in bikes and other extreme sports gear. Aluminum decks and steel handlebars stand up to the most brutal grinds and jumps, while silicon and rubber grips help keep riders comfortably in control. Tough, speed-friendly polyurethane wheels with metal or alloy cores withstand plenty of asphalt abuse. Four-wheel designs offer smooth turning and skateboard-like stability, while thin, light two-wheel scooters make for crazy tricks and zippy commutes. The vast selection on eBay includes various brands of scooters as well as plenty of scooter components for building your own or modifying a scooter. Many of these parts and complete scooters are made in the USA, which should please the skate-park loiterer that prefers to buy American. Whether the X Games accepts scooter riding as an official sport or not, pro scooters are catching air and making waves in the parks and on the streets.
