Throwing names around like Bestial Wolf and Killer and you are sure you’ll be the leader of the pack at the skatepark. But does the scooter live up to its name? Is it a true killer?
What happens if you combine the Spanish sun and a straight in your face name? Yes, Bestial Wolf out of Barcelona. A couple of years ago Bestial Wolf only designed wheels but an increased demand for scooter spare parts, made the company expand to include pretty much all sorts of spare parts and even complete scooters.
The Killer – and we can’t get enough of these aggressive names – offers us a one piece fork, integrated headset with HIC compression and great fast 110mm aluminium core spoked wheels. This scooter consists out of a beautiful and a rugged one-piece design. We are in love with the fork on this stunt scooter. Not only does it look good, it does its job almost perfectly. The grip on this beast –pardon me Killer- is in fact killer.
The handlebar is extra strong and is fitted with 4 bolt clamp which provides extra strength This makes the bar very easily to handle when doing barspins. The one-piece deck is especially designed for all your grinding needs. And believe us, we ground this thing until the sparks flew.
But does the Killer have a dark side? Yes, a major bummer on the Killer is the brake. It loosens fast after first use and you are treated with a major annoying rattle sound. This downside can be easily fixed by cutting away the grip on the deck where the screws are and give these screws a good twist. No sweat but a little bit of a hassle. Also when riding and freestyling along we noticed that the ‘feel’ of the scooter is heavy this in comparison with other stunt scooters on the market. But that is just a personal feeling. Another Urban Wheelz top tip would be to install some pegs on this scooter.
We found it a bit dull that Bestial Wolf with such a great name for a stunt scooter, Killer, they provide us with just 3 basic colours. How we would love to see this stunt scooter in black with red drips or flames. The Killer is a great stunt scooter to have, it is truly a wolf hiding in sheep’s clothing at the skate park but it does need some improvement in comparison with the competition.
