Pro scooters have quickly become part of the skate industry and their popularity shows no signs of abating. There are more options than ever before with premium brand names all throwing their hats in the ring. A key aspect of the model you invest in is the deck. It can be difficult to figure out what deck is for you, what length, what size and whether it matches the style that you want to progress in.
At SkateConnection.com.au we have scooter decks for sale to meet the needs of all riders. A longer deck is ideal for older simply because when you have and when you want to lock into rails and ledges for a longer period of time the extra space allows you to comfortably adjust your feet and your balance. Similarly, a wider deck offers the same benefits when it comes to foot size. However, it will also allow you that extra bit of and prevent heel scrapes.
So, don’t let your foot size dictate what you should have, versus what you naturally prefer. The weight of the deck is also something to consider. If you are a rider who performs many tricks and your scooter absorbs a lot of impacts then a heavier deck is usually better and will last longer. A lighter deck is better when it comes to riding ledges and grinds.
When shopping for scooter preference is everything. Here at Skate Connection, we understand that if you are unsure what will best suit your style, buying can be a big deal. As such, we offer free test rides to those who can drop into one of our 10 showrooms in South East Queensland and one of our experts will help you find the best pro scooter and deck for your experience level.
