Buying Guide

Dogg Scooters has been in the stunt scooter market since 2009 and trust us, we know our way around a scooter.

If you have any questions about what scooter to purchase or what scooter is most suitable for you or the person you're buying the scooter for, with brands like District, Dominator, Fuzion, Blunt and Ethic, look no further than our buying guide. 

What am I looking for?

Size: When looking for the size of the scooter, refer to our Sizing Guide.

Cost: We have complete scooters ranging from £50 to £250 with custom builds reaching the high hundreds. There will certainly be a suitable scooter with in the price range. If you have a specific price range in mind, you will be able to filter by that in our handy filters section in the complete scooter category.

Skill Level: When considering skill level, most scooters are generally suitable for beginners, however, when you start improving to the intermediate / expert levels of scooter riding, you may want something more specific from your scooter. This could be a lighter set up or a specific sized set up. This is where you will want to look into the higher end complete scooters or even a custom built scooter!

Weight: Generally with the weight of the scooter, park riding usually demands a lighter set up rather than a heavier set up, where as for the street style of riding, riders usually opt for the heavier, more robust scooter parts. As a brief guide, a scooter lighter than 3.5kg would be considered as light whereas when it is over to 4kg, that is when the weight starts making a difference in the tricks and it may limit the rider. For a beginner, you will want to go for an average weight, between 3.4-3.9kg, unless you specifically want a heavier or a lighter set up!

Weight Capacity: Usually stunt scooters can hold up too 100kg. However, smaller scooters such as the Dominator Scout / Cadet, which are made specifically for children, will not hold this much. This will be stated.

Upgrading Parts: Something to consider when buying a scooter is the ease of upgrade. This is because, if the scooter is not compatible with many other products, instead of just being able to purchase a taller bar, you may need to purchase a lot of upgraded parts or even a full new scooter. IHC / HIC / SCS compression is always super easy to upgrade.
