Scooter brakes - spring vs. flex fender
On this page you will find a great selection of scooter brakes. We offer stunt scooter brakes for beginners, professionals and everyone who find themselves in between those levels. The scooter brakes are durable yet affordable, making it easy for you to stay within budget.
A scooter brake is always mounted over the rear wheel. You can commonly find two types of scooter brakes: a spring bake and a flex fender brake. A spring brake is a very standard type of brake, often found on scooters for kids and pro scooters in the lower end of the price range. It is made up out of 3 parts: the brake itself, a spring and a mounting bolt. After some time, the spring can lose its strength, an indication the spring has to be replaced.
Another type of scooter brake is the flex fender brake. It is made out of one piece and is attached with mounting bolts to the deck of the pro scooter. This type of brake is more durable than a spring brake and is therefore often found on scooters in the higher price range.
Does the brake fit with your deck and wheels?
Not every brake fits with every type of deck and not every brake can be used for all wheel diameters. Therefore it is important to check if your desired brake is actually compatible with your scooter parts. You can find information on compatibility in the specifications of each product. It will show what wheel diameter will fit with the brake and the type of brake is specified. Remember that the mounting holes of the brake also fit with the mounting holes of your deck.
