What is the difference between a 'normal' scooter and a stunt scooter?

It may be useful to start at the beginning.

We all know the 'normal' scooters, but what makes a stunt scooter different from such an ordinary scooter?

A stunt scooter is a more robust version of a regular scooter. The scooter is usually not adjustable in height and cannot be folded.

In addition, a scooter weighs more than a normal scooter and has an advanced compression system.

These characteristics make the scooter ideal for doing crazy stunts and riding on ramps.

It is important that you maintain the scooter properly, so that you can extend its lifespan. Of course you want to use your fantastic scooter for as long as possible!

Conclusion

The Mongoose Rise is a very solid stunt scooter; sturdy enough for the older children, but at the same time light enough for fun tricks.

It is suitable for children who use a stunt scooter for the first time, but can also be used by teenagers and young adults weighing up to 100 kg.

This scooter is also very suitable for experienced 'stunters'. So you can enjoy this beautiful scooter with the whole family!

The child can take it to the skate park or to school, and mom and dad can quickly run an errand or take a tour of the center.

The scooter is built as safe as possible, but falling is of course not excluded. That is why I recommend that your child always wear the necessary protection, such as a helmet and possibly knee and elbow pads.

Lots of (stunt) fun!
