Sizing your scooter!
Sizing your scooter is important not only for comfort but for safety!
For correct comfortable and safe control the formula is still the same, your scooter bars height needs to be set at just on top of hip height! your arms slightly bent with your back should be reasonably straight and not leaning bent forward.
So unless you have a fantasy with dental or doctors visits please measure from hips down to the ground to confirm bar height, ampro skates will usually size bars at no extra cost!
In regards to bar width for trick scooters, the ideal width needs to be set the same as a bicycle set up, that is the width should be set to the riders shoulder width.
At his point in time, there is no legal requirement or legislation to wear safety gear, but if you are attempting any type of tricks it is advised for your own safety to at least wear a helmet and if you are purchasing a new set of skates, skateboard or scooter remember ampro skates has always safety gear at 20% off RRP.
