Features of Grit Fluxx Pro Scooter
The Grit Fluxx Pro Scooter has a multitude of high-end parts that sets it apart from average pro scooters. Take a look at what all this pro scooter has to offer for beginner to intermediate riders.
4” Wide x 19” Long 3 Degree Concave with Integrated Grind Rails- Decks are kind of like your scooter’s backbone. It’s really important for them to provide decent support by being strong enough. The 4.0″ wide deck with 3 degrees of concavity provides the extra stickiness to land even the toughest tricks. The deck of this pro scooter is made of 6061 heat-treated triple channel alloy and has a diamond shaped down tube. The deck width is a bit narrow, so it’s good for kids and smaller adults. The integrated deck not only provides a much better fit for the headset, but also ensures perfect alignment for smoother fork rotation, which is needed in order to perform tricks.
100mm Alloy Cast 88A PU Wheels with ABEC 9 Bearings- These wheels have tough alloy cores for strength with soft Pro PU 88A rims for a high rebound. The alloy cores makes the wheels so much tougher than the original plastic cores a lot of beginner scooters have, which will easily break once you start trying more advanced tricks. Metal cores not only are more break-resistant, but they also provide much better support; this was found to be an ongoing point while doing this Grit Fluxx Pro Scooter review.
31.8mm Alloy Double Clamp- The clamp is what securely fixes the bars to the fork. This ensures both bars are rotating in sync without slipping apart from each other. This is important for the continual use of freestyle scootering. If the bars slip apart, it can cause tricks to be harder to do or may even prevent them. TIP: Make sure you clamp stays firmly tightened.
Threaded High Tensile Steel HIC Fork- The fork supports the front wheel just as other brands. In addition, it continues through the headtube on the bars where they are joined by the alloy double clamp mentioned above. This threaded fork on the Grit Fluxx Pro Scooter offers just the right amount of trail, making it easier to both steer and handle. TIP: You should always try to avoid landing on the front part of your scooter to keep from damaging the headset, bar, and fork.
18″ Wide x 21.25″ Tall Hi Tensile Reinforced Gusseted Riser Handlebars- Since bars are the primary connection between scooter and rider, height, width, and shape are needed for a personal fit. These handlebars are both strong and lightweight. Unfortunately, the grips on the bars are not as good as could be and will probably need to be replaced. There were a few complaints about riders receiving blisters from the grips that come standard. They are easily replaced, so this is not a real big problem.
Grit Flex Fender Brake- This brake is lightweight and designed to give you optimal braking power by gently pressing on the brake while leaning your weight backwards on the scooter. Flex brakes are great for quieting down a noisy scooter in addition to dialing it in. TIP: Never block your brake; this can lead to bald spots and will make your wheel jump.
7.67 lbs- Pro scooter reviews say the weight of your scooter will obviously have a direct effect on freestyle scootering and the tricks performed. When choosing a scooter, pick the weight that is right for you. This scooter is lightweight, made for maximum air at the skatepark.
