The most frequently asked question by first-time scooter riders is “What size scooter do I need?” With the large variety of options available, the decision of which scooter to start with can be an difficult one. That’s ok - we’re here to help.
In action sports, sizing can be very flexible as sizes tend to vary not only based on the height of the rider, but their riding style and personal preference as well. The size of the scooter will greatly affect the rider’s confidence. Some tricks are easier to achieve with a slightly smaller scooter while others are easier with a slightly larger scooter. As riders develop experience, they will be better able to determine their own personal preferences. Beginners are best to stick with our recommended sizing chart:
|Rider Age||Rider Height||Handlebar Height|
|7-10||122cm / 48"||510mm / 20"|
|130cm / 51"||530mm / 21"|
|137cm / 54"||560mm / 22"|
|11-14||145cm / 57"||580mm / 23"|
|152cm / 60"||610mm / 24"|
|160cm / 63"||640mm / 25"|
|14+||168cm / 66"||660mm / 26"|
|175cm / 69"||685mm / 27"|
|183cm / 72"||710mm / 28"|
*Values may be rounded as necessary
The above chart should simplify the decision process when it comes to choosing a new scooter. Generally a scooter with a smaller handlebar will also have a smaller deck, and wheels; whereas a scooter with a larger handlebar will have proportionately larger parts.
We do not recommend purposely purchasing a scooter that is too large, with the expectation that the rider will “grow into it.” As a beginner, a scooter that is too big will be challenging to master, and this may reduce their confidence, and slow their learning progression.
