A little history
At the beginning of the 20th century, the scooter was rather a toy for the children of wealthy families. First built of wood, it is then made of steel. The freestyle scooter appeared in the 2000s, but was a relatively confidential practice. It has since become completely democratized.
What characterizes a freestyle scooter ?
The freestyle scooter is a special scooter because it is made up of a single block. It does not bend and is therefore more solid, it also has small wheels, a handlebar in the shape of a T or Y. Light, it is used to perform acrobatic figures, especially in skate parks
It is also composed of:
- A deck: platform where you put your feet, on which there is a grip (non-slip surface);
- A clamp: piece that holds the handlebars and the fork;
- A manual rear brake;
- A reinforced fork.
