2014 was another amazing year for pro scooters. A lot of great new products were released into the scooter world, from completes to decks to wheels. Older, well-respected companies released upgrades to old favorites, while newer companies put their names on the map with all-new quality parts. As we say goodbye to 2014 and look forward to what next year will bring, here's a list of our favorite new scooter products of the past year.
Envy's 2014 version of the famed Ace of Spaces (AOS) deck comes in several signature models, each with their own unique artwork and colors. Our favorite is probably the Max Peters Oil Slick model - we've never seen anything quite like it.
Lucky released their Kota signature scooter, designed with and used by three-time ISA World Champion Dakota Schuetz. From top to bottom, every inch of the Kota is designed to make a superior scooter, able to deliver optimum performance in any situation. It's a real beauty.
Sacrifice is all about innovation and next-gen designs, and they really hit a home run with their new AK completes. Available in two sizes, the AK 110 and AK 115 scooters are designed with advanced riders in mind - but are great for any rider. Each and every part looks great, performs great, and comes together to make one of the most beautifully executed scooters we've ever seen.
The Flavor Awakening complete was one of our most highly anticipated releases of the year. We couldn't wait for it - and we were not disappointed. With a sturdy but lightweight construction, premium parts (which are also available individually), and the approval of the Flavor pro team, the Flavor Awakening scooter easily earned a spot on this list.
Madd Gear Pro released their VX4 line this year - the VX4 Pro, Team, Nitro, and Extreme completes. These scooters were some of the most popular products of the year, impressing new and advanced riders alike with their quality parts, performance, and price.
The folks at Eagle gave the scooter world a new, cheaper option for great wheels this year, in the form of their Chopsticks wheels. Available in both 100mm and 110mm sizes, Eagle Chopsticks wheels feature high quality 6061 spoked cores, 86A urethane for excellent versatility, and cost less than 18 bucks apiece (not to mention that cool sushi roll artwork).
This list wouldn't be complete without the Tilt Arc Clamp, Tilt's updated version of their classic clamps. The ARC Double Clamp, SCS Quad Clamp, and SCS LT Quad Clamp all look stunning, and perform just as flawlessly as their classic cousins.
Last but certainly not least, Tilt released their Blaster AIR Wheels this year. Tilt spent 2.5 years working on these wheels, and the end result couldn't be more satisfying. Dual layered urethane, the Adaptive Inner Ring system, an anodized core - Tilt Blasters have it all and then some. Highly praised by the pros, Tilt Blaster wheels are definitely one of the most highly recommended scooter products of 2014.
