The Grit Extremist for both beginners and intermediate scooter riders.
One of the most popular models in the Grit range is the Extremist Scooter. For a long time it was their beginner model before the introduction of the Atom. It has seen several upgrades over the years with the latest version being the 2017. A quality ride, this model has been upgraded to now include a threadless headset. Retaining the Alloy Core wheels of the previous upgrade, the Extremist now packs a punch and offers amazing value for money.
Wheels - The primary upgrade for the 2016 & 2017 model focuses on the wheels. The now 88a 100mm Alloy cores are a quality addition and will take much more punishment than the plastic cores on the older version.
Bars - Both 2016/17 models now feature 530mm high bars. Looking for something smaller - try the Atom scooters, with bars at just 500mm high and great for younger riders.
Forks - The stand out feature and the 2016 model is the threadless forks with HIC system. One of the lowest priced scooters to offer this quality set up seen more commonly on rides over £100.
Deck - Lightweight yet made with heated treated Alloy for strength it will take the punishment from jumps and tricks.
Brake - The break is of the flex kind which is sturdier than the spring break but can be a little stiff for very young riders!
The Grit Extremist model is spot on in terms of both price and quality. It is perfect for newer riders for use in the skate parks or riding to school on.
