The Grit Fluxx Scooter offers a threadless set- up at an awesome price!
The Grit Fluxx is the next step up from the entry level model's and bag a whole lot of scooter for the money. At around the £100 price point the Grit Fluxx 2015 is aimed at intermediate riders looking for a little higher spec on their scooters.
The main benefit of opting for the Fluxx over the entry models is the addition of a threadless headset with a HIC compression system. It also has higher spec ABEC 9 wheel bearings in the 2 tone alloy core wheels, and awesome paint affects/graphics.
Headset - The key upgrade this year is the move to a threadless headset, bringing the model more in line with the likes of the Slamm Mischief 2 which has similar spec and price. The compression system is a hidden one (HIC) and sits with the high tensile steel forks with side cut outs.
Wheels - The 100mm 2 colour 88A PU alloy slotted wheels with ABEC 9 bearings remain on this model after their success on the 2014 Fluxx.
Deck - Made from 6061 heat treated alloy, 10cm wide with 3 degrees concave, this deck also has intergrated grind rails, to help a rider’s control. The diamond shape internal gusseted down tube helps to give it the strength it needs for the skate parks.
Bars - The handlebars on this model are similar to the older designs being high tensile gusseted riser measuring in at 460mm wide and 540cm high.
Clamp - Similar to other brands we see the move to a double clamp, from the previous triple clamp. Whilst strong enough for the job and helping to reduce overall weight, brands are becoming more aware that a clamp is often the first component that riders like to change out on a scooter. Riders who favour something more substantial can upgrade to an after-market clamp if they are seeking to put their own stamp on their scooter.
Finished with soft feel grips and a flex fender brake, this Grit Fluxx Scooter is a solid beginner/intermediate ride offering great value for money from a trusted brand.
