Scooter Wheels - Flashing Lights at the Monster Scooter Parts Film Festival

The humble and unpretentious kick scooter has come a long way over the years. From its plebian origins to today's folding aluminum models, the kick scooter has grown from being a home-made kids' toy to being a ubiquitous sight on thousands of urban sidewalks and suburban cul-de-sacs. Monster Scooter Parts celebrates the kick scooter with a wide offering of bearings, colorful handlebar grips, a plethora of top-quality helmets & safety gear, and a selection of replacement wheels. And what kick scooter would be complete without a handlebar mount squeaky horn or ring-a-ding bell?

The Wheel
One of our favorite items here at Monster Scooter Parts are these wonderful 98mm/100mm light up wheels for the Razor A and A2 kick scooter. In fact, we love these sparkling riots of light so much that my friend and colleague GT recorded a short film that spotlights these kick scooter wheels in all their beauty.

Not only do kids of all ages (just ask GT) love these light-up wheels, parents can take a bit of ease knowing that the riders' safety factor is most certainly enhanced in low-light conditions. You simply cannot miss the gorgeous illuminating display when a kick scooter sporting these wheels goes flashing by.

Judging from contemporary illustrations, the kick scooter has had a very long, if largely undocumented history. Two hundred years ago kids were playing on early wooden versions complete with handmade wooden wheels. Still later kick scooters could be built at home using an old steel-wheeled roller skate, a pine 2X4 and a bit of metal conduit pipe with a T-joint. Over the years various kinds of kick scooters came and went in popularity, along with yo-yos, hula-hoops, the Whee-Lo, and the Slinky. But unlike some other faddish toys, the kick scooter (sometimes called a "kickboard") never totally died out as each new generation rediscovered and reinvented them, seemingly from scratch.

The modern folding aluminum kick scooter made its dramatic debut in the last years of the 20th Century with the Swiss Micro Original Scooters. Almost concurrently, JDBug began marketing the now-famous Razor scooter. A decade later, Razor is still the premier designer and manufacturer of kick scooters in the world. No longer just for kids, adult-sized Razor scooters like the A5 Lux are being discovered by urban commuters needing to travel down the sidewalk a bit farther than an easy fast walk. An advantage of the folding scooter over the bicycle is the scooter takes up very little space. The office worker or messenger can simply fold the kick scooter up and carry it into a building.

The life of a Scooter Parts Professional is always intense.
As the global leader in the international scooter parts trade, the Scooter Parts Professionals (SPPs) at Monster Scooter Parts might be forgiven for wanting to rest on their proverbial laurels on a rare occasion, but the company got to where it is because they are the busiest bunch in the industry. Far from being a happy-go-lucky parcel of scamps & scallywags with too much time on our hands; in reality the Monster Scooter Parts crew stays busy scouring the globe to bring our customers the very best, the handiest, most useful, or just the most unique items available for your scooting lifestyle. A pair of 98mm Kick Scooter Wheels may not be the most profound piece of merchandise that we sell, but to a kid on a Razor, a set of these gloriously illuminating little spinners may be the Greatest Invention in Human History!
