Stunt Scooters Buyer's Guide

Stunt scooters are a great option for older kids who are looking to wow their friends at the local skate park or on the school run. These scooters are specifically designed to support tricks and stunts, with heavier and more resistant frames that help to protect against the impact of jumps. They don't fold and they're also not adjustable, which makes it even more important to find the right one for your child.

We've got a great range of stunt scooters to choose from at Halfords. So, what do you need to look out for when you're buying a stunt scooter for your child?

Stunt scooter sizing

Unlike with standard kids' scooters, stunt scooters should be chosen based on the height of your child and not their age. If the handlebar is too high, it could prevent the skater from completing tricks successfully. As a general rule of thumb, you should aim to get a scooter where the top of the handlebar reaches your child's waist.

We recommend stunt scooters for ages 8 and above due to the level of coordination and motor skills required.

ABEC rating

One of the most essential aspects of a stunt scooter is its ABEC rating. ABEC stands for Annular Bearings Engineers Committee and a higher ABEC rating implies a smoother ride and better tolerance for jumps and precision movements.

Choosing the right stunt scooter

Another factor that determines what stunt scooter you should buy is your child's level of experience.


For beginners, we recommend our X-Rated range. These entry-level scooters have got all the basics a young skater needs and are also great value for money.


For intermediate riders, we'd recommend a Mongoose scooter. These have a higher spec to compensate for a higher level of tricks and stunts, with reinforced steel forks and ABEC 7 bearings or more.


If your child's a regular intermediate-level rider or on their way to becoming a real pro, then we suggest our Invert range of stunt scooters. Our Invert models include elements that you'll find in professional-level stunt scooters and feature stylish designs that'll leave a lasting impression.

It's really important to ensure that your child stays safe and protected when they're practising tricks and jumps. We'd always recommend that they wear a helmet, particularly a skate-style one as this type has a hardwearing shell and provides greater coverage around the back of the head.

Protective pads

Protective pad sets will help to protect knees, elbows and wrists from any unexpected impacts as your child perfects their tricks and jumps.

Scooter carry straps

Stunt scooters aren't foldable, which can make them a little tricky to carry. That's why we reckon it's worth investing in a carry strap, so that your child can easily transport their scooter to the skate part and save all their energy for performing tricks.
