They have a riser Y bar design with three degrees of back sweep. The bars are neither too wide nor too skinny which makes them ideal for controlling the scooter. They are designed with the pro style soft grips for a firm yet comfortable grip when riding. The handlebars have been set at a position that enable you to comfortably control the scooter while in an upright position. This adds to the proper balancing of the scooter.
The scooter’s braking system is comprised of a die cast stamped-steel spring which uses the new cartridge system. This includes a gusseted head tube with bearing cups. The unique braking system allows for easier rear wheel assembly as well as switching of the brake styles without modifying or changing the decks.
The brakes can be interchanged with the Phase Two flex fenders or spring brakes and have been designed to slow it down or bring it to a halt really promptly. You will not have to worry about losing balance, skidding or falling over after applying the brakes.
Construction and Deck
This is a sleek style scooter that built for experienced riders. It is constructed using a hydro-formed down-tube design with large footprints for a stronger bond. It has a phase two X brace aluminum deck which is 4.94 inches wide and 21.65 inches long. Impact resistant deck plugs are normally installed in the cutouts so as to protect the rider’s ankles as well as the structural integrity of dropouts. It also helps to keep the deck clean by keeping the dirt out.
The non-plunged phase two style deck/down-tube weldment which connects the deck and the down tube results in:
- A strong bond between the down tube and the deck
- Direct connection of the deck’s internal X-brace to the down tube
- A superior surface for the nose blunts
