Another British brand competing in the stunt scooter market. JD Bug have brought out their third take on what they describe as a pro version of the stunt scooter at an affordable price. Let us see if Britain brings in another win.
JD Bug scooters have been building their way in the stunt scooter market for over a decade now. They produce budget scooters and they also suit the demands of the new sport with their take on pro series scooters and parts. JD Bug listens to the community of extreme scootering and since 1999 they have been improving on what the community demands within the sport.
You can’t ignore the fact that the shoulder strap on this scooter will catch your eye. This means that the Pro Street is a foldable scooter which is very handy for transportation – if you are not scooting to the skatepark. Another great advantage are the adjustable handlebars. Which makes it easy to adjust this stunt scooter to an adult or a child. But the major downside is that the JD Bug is actually a street scooter and isn’t designed for you to do mad tricks.
Other components used on this stunt scooter are from JD Bug’s own parts series which will result in sturdy and high-quality materials. For example, the use of two double clamps makes this scooter very nice and tight. This in comparison with other scooters makes the JDBug the head of the class.
JD Bug did really listen to the community and their needs. This stunt scooter does not only use pro materials, it can also withstand all your extreme pro stunting needs and make you feel like a pro. Also what makes this scooter stand out from the rest is the fact it looks robust; it will give you confidence it can withstand some heavy use.
It was hard for us to find a real point of critique on this scooter. It is sturdy, it is built especially for extreme sporting needs. However, a really small downside would be that the forks seem kind of thin. But even with the wear and tear we inflicted on this scooter, the fork could withstand it all.
Time to drop a little bomb here. While you might think a pro version of a stunt scooter is always expensive, JD Bug have produced a street scooter for extreme needs at a very affordable price. And this makes the JD Bug Pro Street version 3 our personal favorite!
