Ask ScooterDad: Whats the difference between a " Grit CX I Series and a Atom pro scooter. Is there any model close to the Grit CX I but more affordable?

Grit Atom:

Grit CX I:

The Atom has plastic core 100mm wheels instead of metal core 110mm wheels on the CX I. The Atom has a threaded headset while the CX I has a threadless headset with HIC compression. The CX I has stronger bars. The CX I is definitely a step up from the Atom. The CX I would be a better platform for adding upgraded parts later.
