Just when you thought you had seen it all there is in stunt scooters, Blunt and Envy brings out their fifth improvement in their ongoing Prodigy series. Is there even a downside to this scooter?
Blunt and Envy are an up and coming Australian brand. They focus on the entry level and amateur scooter market. They bring a wide variety of out of the box scooters to the table, one to fit every riding style and budget. Each year they improve upon the design and this is the latest in their Prodigy series.
The Prodigy series are indeed the prodigy of stunt scooters. Let’s see what is still the same and what has changed during all these years of development.
At first there is the outstanding, innovative nylon brake system enforced with some steel. Another standard feature to keep the scooter light and speedy is the use of the lightweight compression and fork.
The improvement in these five series is the use of 122 mm wheels combined with ABEC 9 bearings, making this stunt scooter very smooth and speedy. Another great feature is the use of a stock frontplate. Thanks to this frontplate, you can grind, overcook and blunt slide like a pro without damaging the underneath of the deck. Speaking of grip, having wider and softer TVR grips on the handlebar is a major plus!
Have we discussed the feeling of the scooter yet? We sometimes wonder if we bought a tank or a stunt scooter. The materials used are very tight and solidly built. This sturdiness makes the Blunt and Envy Prodigy an awesome scooter for younger riders. Combine this with five different, great sounding colours such as candy and smoke blue. You will make any child -and adult- very happy with this model. Believe us.
What we found important is that you need to check the bolts and screws before use. There is a possibility that one or two might be too loose and you don’t want your scooter going all wiggly. Also, if you think the bars are a little stiff you can fix them by loosening up the compression.
To sum it all up, the Prodigy is really the highest standard in stunt scooters. If you are still in doubt between this an another scooter, don’t be – choose the Prodigy.
