Important features of a stunt scooter

What are the essential features you should look for when buying a first stunt scooter:

Bar - a one piece bar (not a foldable bar) to withstand the impact of tricks. The handlebars should ideally reach no higher than waist height or sit just about hip height/ below waist height.

Wheels -avoid plastic core wheels. Metal core wheels are designed withstand jumps. Most beginner scooters will have wheels either 100mm or 110mm. 120 to 125mm are normally seen on more expensive pro scooters.

Brake - flex brake is better than a spring brake

Weight - the lighter the better for doing stunts. Smaller, younger children in particular need lighter scooters to control.

Threadless vs Threaded Forks - Threadless forks are stronger and therefore a better choice than threaded forks.
