Stunt Scooter Ramps For Kids
Are your kids crazy about learning and practising new stunts, jumps, hops and tricks? Then having a scooter / skateboard ramp is a must. Check out our top picks of scooter ramps for kids, enabling beginners to increase their confidence when they are hitting the ramps at the skate park.
Factors To Consider When Buying a Scooter Ramp
1.) Size - make sure it can fit in your garden (or anywhere else you wish to use it) so that there's enough space around it for tricks. The bigger the ramp, the more landing space you'll require. You may also need to think about where you are going to store the ramps.
2.) Portability - if you require the ramp to be portable, ensure it's light enough to carry and transport. If you wish to take it in the car to transport make sure it can fit in easily too.
3.) Stunt scooter ability - beginners will probably prefer mini ramps which are smaller and more portable. Small ramps are also easier for beginners to get to grips with and increase confidence. Intermediate and advanced scooter riders may prefer a large ramp.
4.) Weatherproof - can you leave the ramp outdoors in all weather? This will depend on the type of material it's made out of.
5.) Level of use - ensure that it's designed for the level of use that you require. Mini ramps that are made of lightweight moulded plastic are great for beginners and smaller riders but for an intermediate, taller rider you may require something stronger. Larger ramps are able to withstand impact from greater weights.
