Review: Fuzion Z300 Pro Complete Scooter

The Fuzion Z300 Pro complete scooter is a great, all-around freestyle scooter for the price, but the deck is the standout feature.

Answer: 

There are two different types of Apex bars (standard and oversized) and which kind you need depends on what the rest of your setup requires.

For a custom scooter, generally, the parts you need are:

  • Deck
  • Fork
  • Bars
  • Headset
  • Clamp of some kind with associated compression mechanism that works with headset, fork, and bars
  • Wheels
  • Bearings
  • Bearing spacers
  • Axels
  • Wheel spacers (rear, unless brake has a carrier with built in spacers; some forks need wheel spacers as well)
  • Brake
  • Grip tape
  • Grips

Thanks to The Vault Pro Scooters for creating this great info graphic!

Our friends and advertising partners over at The Vault Pro Scooters recently put together an infographic about the history of the kick scooter over at their site and they asked us to share it here as well. I was quite surprised at how much I learned from inventor's sister's leg condition that led to the invention of the kick scooter to new scootering video game that is currently in development. They did a really great job with this, so I hope that you'll get something out of it too. So take a look and then head over to The Vault to check out their inventory.
