FRENZY SCOOTER FROM SKATES
Skates.co.uk has been at the forefront of the scooter and skate market since it’s launch in 2007. After the massive success of their Heelys website, Flywalk, this family-run business exploded on the scootering scene, bringing all the best scooters, for extreme and recreational use, to the public.
We have been asked to review the Frenzy 250mm Recreational Scooter which is available at www.Skates.co.uk.
The scooter arrived very conveniently by courier. Within the box the scooter was in protective packaging, along with instruction manual and allen keys.
I took the Frenzy Recreational Scooter out of its box, after reading the instructions. It was very clear and simple what I had to do.
This scooter is in my opinion a fantastically built scooter, and read on to know why.
The scooter arrives folded up, to release this scooter from the folded position you need to use the catch which is located on the front bar. (positioned on the back fender brake whilst in the folded position.) Simply pulling this releases it from the fender brake and lift up right until locked into place, then release the catch.
I absolutely love this feature, as I always use my other Frenzy scooter to go to the shops with, and having to fold it down, is yes easy, but in cold weather my hands are so cold and trying to fold a scooter with cold hands is no fun!
With the Frenzy 250mm Recreational Scooter I just need to pull the catch to release and I can fold it straight back down with a click back to the fender brake.
The scooter doesn’t stop with the pro’s there either, additionally it has been made for easy transportation. Once folded down, you can actually pull the scooter without scraping the scooter deck.
This is such a great addition which I use quite alot of the time. Grace and Jake love taking their scooters up to school, so to carry two scooters home can become a headache. Having this feature is a big bonus for me and is one I have been using quite a lot.
The scooters’ handlebars are adjustable too, but I find the first lower setting to be a great height for me, I am 5ft 6 inches. When you are putting your scooter away, the handle bars can also be released by the metal push buttons, and clip onto the front bar allowing for the scooter to be folded small and compact.
The Frenzy 250mm Recreational Scooter is such great quality, the wheels are also solid, which I have found over time to be the better wheels if you are wanting to go a further distance with less push.
There is a high quality brake situated at the back of the scooter, infact everything about the scooter just screams out quality.
The pictured detailed instructions were very clear and simple to understand, they also had maintenance instructions to let you know how to look after your scooter.
I really love the bigger wheels on this scooter, making it seem more ‘adult’ and it is very suited to me to use daily to get to work, and it will last many years to come as it is a very well built scooter that I just can’t fault.
The Frenzy Scooter features great grip on the handles which are red, with a smooth finish to the rest of the scooter.
We have used this Frenzy Recreational Scooter to go to the nearest shopping centre, to and from school and also used it for Pokemon hunting for Jake on the app which Jake has just discovered. So getting to and from locations with our Frenzy scooters has been perfect.
The Frenzy 250mm Recreational Scooter is also an extremely smooth ride, with ease of use we can get to and from locations in no time. This scooter is to be used for leisure and is not a stunt scooter
Skates deliver free in the UK and next working day for orders over £40 if ordered before 5pm weekdays. They also offer a price match service and will match any retailer!
The Frenzy 250mm Recreational Scooter offer increased power to push ratio with its big wheel set-up. In addition to the large front wheel it uses a 215mm rear wheel allowing riders to go further for longer. The maximum weight this scooter is recommended for is 100kg, which is about 15.7 Stones.
The scooter is suited for boys, girl, men and women. It is a larger scooter compared to my others, and is recommend for older children 8+ to adult. It is a great size for Jake who is 8 which will suit him now to adulthood.
There is even have a younger children range of Frenzy 3 wheel scooters available too which looks fantastic.
You can choose from many other different scooters on the website you can be sure to find a scooter which is perfect for you from Skates.
If you are still unsure, you also have the option to choose ‘scooter builder’ on their website. This gives you the option to build your own custom scooter. I, of course have had a peek at this option. It is full of a wide range of choices to choose from to create perfect scooter for yourself!
Selecting the pieces you would like, and going through step by step to build your customised scooter. The options are endless for the specifications that you could choose from. You can also narrow the options down using categories per step which could help if you have an idea what you are looking for, or simply view all to see the collection.
Also if you are stuck or unsure, there is a live web chat option on the website to answer any questions.
THE REST OF THE RANGE
Skates don’t just sell scooters – they also have a brilliant range of inline skates, aggressive skates, roller skates, retro quad roller skates, Heelys, ice skates, mini BMX, longboards, balance boards & Swegways, clothing, skateboards, all-terrain skates and of course the safety protection.
They also sell parts. So don’t forget Skates when you need new wheels or bearings which I’m sure I won’t forget!
Heelys are just like trainers but they have wheels in their heel. This allows the wearer to walk, run or roll, by shifting their weight to their heel. Heelys provide a huge amount of fun. They can even be turned into normal shoes by removing the wheels.
One wheel Heelys are made for children who’s sense of balance is good and can pick up how to do balance sports or activities like riding a bike quickly. Two wheel Heelys Shoes are intended for younger children looking to get the hang of Heelys at a younger age, or those with a poorer sense of balance. The great idea of two wheel Heelys are that the 2nd extra wheel can also be removed at a later date once your child gets the hang of Heelys more!
Heelys start from size UK Junior 11 which is approx age 5/6+ and go up to adult size 8 shoe. The website is very clear to understand, after pressing the Heelys tab, you can view all the Heelys, if you wish to filter this option down, you can choose from 1 or 2 wheels and also boys/girls category.
There are so many different designs to choose from, which I’m sure will make it hard to choose from, spoilt for choice! Grace likes the idea of Heelys. We particularly like the ones in the image above as they can be unisex.
You will be sure to find something of interest to suit as there is something for everyone!
The clothing range that is also sold online is also quite broad range. They have hats & caps, stance socks, wristbands, tshirts, hoodies, headphones, shorts, leggings, bags & backpacks. They really do seem to have everything you need in one place and can all be placed within the same order.
So what will you choose from their site?
