The Grit Extremist is the entry model to Grit Scooters, and both beginners and intermediate riders will not be left disappointed by this one. Upgrade to the Extremist Pro for a triple clamp, flex brake and concave deck.
The latest Grit Extremist model has arrived for the autumn of 2013 and with it a permanent reduction in price to around the £60 mark. The spec on this version though has been slightly scaled down to reflect the overall price drop. That said for the price this scooter is now perfect for riders wanting their first proper Stunt Scooter, or intermediate riders looking for a lower priced scooter that can then be built upon.
This Extremist model is spot on in terms of both price and quality. The deck in 4” wide with 6061 heat treated (to make it stronger) Alloy. The handlebars come in at 500mm and are Hi Ten with soft feel grips for extra comfort when you cling tight and face the fear on the learner ramps.
The wheels have nylon core which helps to keep this scooter at such a low price but can be easily upgraded later to metal cores if required. Also unusually for the cheaper end stunt scooters this brand provide top quality Abec 7 bearings.
The Extremist comes in a variety of colours and is known for its all same colour bars and decks.
The previous higher priced model was called the Grit Extremist 2013 or Grit Extremist 3, to keep it simple this latest version is just the Grit Extremist.
An alternative to the Extremist would be the Grit Extremist Pro; this model was first introduced as a limited edition back in the summer of 2012. It has now made reappearance and is a slightly upgraded version of the standard Extremist. So with a slightly higher price you will benefit from a flex brake which will give the rider a more dialled ride and quieter ride. The deck is also concave which gives greater foot control with grind rails on the bottom to give more stunt options. The clamp is triple rather than the double as on the standard Extremist giving extra support when landing heavy tricks.
The Extremist Pro also comes in several colour ways with the decks and bars being of contrasting colours.
