Additional information

What is the difference between a freestyle scooter and a "normal" scooter?
The differences between a freestyle scooter and a classic scooter are similar to those between a BMX bike and a city bike. A freestyle scooter has wider handlebars and smaller wheels (making it easier to handle). Its weight is also different (it is lighter) and it is more manoeuvrable. Since the aim is to do tricks, the handlebars can do a full turn, for example. Freestyle scooters are also more rigid and sturdy.
Choosing the right size freestyle scooter
To choose the right size freestyle scooter, stand on it and check that the handlebar comes up to hip level, your arms are stretched out and your back straight.
What is the deck made of?
The triple channel deck is made from 6061 T6 anodized aluminium. The four rails give it better stability and better glide on grinds. Dimensions: 31 x 110 x 500 mm.
What are this scooter's handlebars made from?
One-piece construction T-bar (handlebar) made from 6061 T6 aluminium with reinforced plate. The advantage of aluminium is that it's lighter than steel. Dimensions = Ø 35.6 mm, H: 560 mm, L: 420 mm. Overall height: 830 mm
What type of fork does this scooter have?
Reinforced T6 aluminium fork. Fork compatible with 100 mm diameter wheels (integrated spacer system. The spacer sits between the two bearings to relieve pressure on these bearings).
What is the headset made from?
1 1/8" threaded VP headset with standard compression system (SCS).
What type of collar clamp is used?
Aluminium 3 screw Collar Clamp. Inner diameter: 35.6 mm.
What size are the wheels?
Spoked alloy core wheels (solid wheels without spokes) with a 100 mm diameter. High Bounce 88A PU. The MF 1.8 wheels are mounted on ABEC 7 bearings for a good glide.
Why are there different wheel sizes?
100, 110 or 120 mm? The bigger the wheel's diameter, the more stability the rider will have, which helps them go faster... The downside is the weight. A bigger wheel will be heavier and harder to manoeuvre when doing tricks. The wheel size should therefore be chosen based on your aims.
What is a flex brake system?
A "flex brake" is designed to return to its original shape after each squeeze. The main difference compared to a spring brake is that it limits vibrations. This system also stops the rubber on the wheels from wearing out so quickly.
The scooter complies with EN 14619. What does the standard cover?
The EN 14619 standard defines the safety requirements and test methods for roller sports equipment.
What safety precautions should you take when doing freestyle?
You should always wear protective equipment (helmet, knee pads and elbow pads) when scootering. Most serious accidents take place during the first few months of use: spend time learning the basics so that you can control your speed and brake in emergency situations in all weather conditions (particularly on wet terrain).
What is the maximum weight this freestyle scooter can take?
100kg.

    Brand response :

    Hello Caroline,

    Thank you for your feedback regarding the MF 1.8 Freestyle scooter. The brake in stunt scooters has to be more durable, therefore instead of normal spring brake, you will find a 'flex' brake (which is harder to press). It's advantage is to be much stronger and it avoids the vibrations / noises on the scooter. It's characteristics are specific to the practice of the freestyle scooter, and it must meet certain constraints of this sport.
    However in your case it may be a manufacturing defect, because the brake can not stop working completely. I invite you to get in touch with our online team (https://www.decathlon.co.uk/contact-us.html) or drop into your local store where we can find the best solution for you.

    Kind regards
    Magda, Oxelo Sport Leader

    Very nice beginner scooter

    For beginners it isn’t perfect for a low price it offers everything you need for starting out but rattling starts very early into using this product but overall great scooter!
