Youth Gone Wild Bars | Pro Scooter Shop

Youth Gone Wild is a brand that has been making some major waves in the freestyle scooter industry most recently, but not because of their phenomenal team of riders, or because they have some cool image that is intertwined with the purchasing of their products. Youth Gone Wild has been gaining so much notoriety because of the quality of their actual products themselves. More specifically, they are gaining notoriety because of their groundbreaking innovations with the use of Titanium material to manufacture their bars with. They have essentially broken new ground in the freestyle scooter industry with this innovation because no other scooter brand has had the audacity to even attempt to manufacture any scooter products using Titanium. The most beautiful aspect of Titanium is the fact that the material is so lightweight, while still maintaining a remarkable amount of strength and durability, which is going to turn the entire freestyle scooter industry on its head. We at Pro Scooter Shop are very stoked to announce that we currently have all of Youth Gone Wild's Titanium scooter bar designs in stock for the price of $299.99! These guys are a little bit pricier than most freestyle scooter bars on the market because of the cost of the Titanium material that is used to manufacture them. However, the price is well worth the lightweight, extremely durable return that you will receive from your investment. We currently carry the Titanium T-bars, Small Bends, Milleniums, and Digger bars in stock, and all of them come in at 26" tall by 24" wide. Each style of bar is slightly altered, so make sure to pick out the design that suits you best. Be sure to snag yourself a pair today, and you will definitely have the most lightweight scooter in the neighborhood!

River Wheels Overview

One of our best selling wheels would for sure be the River wheels by River wheel company (AKA Proto). We stock six different colors of these bad boys and they come in either rapids or glides depending on the color you get.


Glides are more recommended for the park as they have a softer urethane that helps you flow the park without pushing once. If you love to blast the quarter pipes and go fast then the glides are most definitely for you. They come in 3 different colors: blue, pink, and gum.


On the other hand, rapids are more recommended for the street as they have a harder urethane that can take beating after beating in the streets. If you find yourself hitting the stairs and always in the streets with the homies then the rapids are most definitely for you. Just like the glides, the rapids come in 3 different colors: black, orange, and teal.


These wheels go for $43.99 - $44.99 per wheel. Keep in mind that these wheels include pre installed bearings and spacers which is always a good thing and saves you tons of time because you don’t have to put them in yourself. Another plus about these wheels is the fact they come with a 90 day warranty. It always great to see a company back up there product so big ups to River on that.


You can purchase these wheels on our website or at our shop location in Redmond, Washington. Stay smooth with your new River wheels!

How To | Building a Custom Complete| Pro Scooter Shop

Building your very own custom complete pro scooter can be an intimidating process. As I explained in my previous blog article, it’s hard to know which parts are right for you, which parts are compatible with each other, and what sizes you need your parts to come in. However, the positive aspects of building your own custom complete pro scooter significantly outweigh the negatives, as I already mentioned in my previous blog article. This is especially true when you take the time to do the proper research and make sure that you have a firm understanding of all of the components of your scooter and their functions.

First of all, it is very important to have an understanding of what your personal preferences are when it comes to scooter components. The first component that you want to pick out is your scooter deck, which essentially comes down to the dimensions that you prefer and the design that you like best. From there, you need to decide what style and dimension of bars you prefer and be sure to make sure that the bars you end up choosing are in relation to the dimensions of your deck. After these two major components are chosen, all that is really left to decide upon is the fork, wheels, headset, compression, grips, and grip tape, which can all be decided with the help of a Pro Scooter Shop employee or by asking around at your local skate park.

As you can see here, the process for building your own custom complete pro scooter is less challenging than it may seem. Once you start getting your hands dirty and understand all of the components of a pro scooter and how they work together then building one is much easier. One tip that we, at Pro Scooter Shop, would want to give to anyone who is attempting to build his or her very first custom scooter is that you should definitely get the help or advice of a professional before spending a lot of time and money trying to do it all on your own. Hopefully this article was of some help to all of you and be sure to share it with your friends if they are planning on buying their own custom complete pro scooter!
