HIC vs SCS vs ICS... What scooter compression to choose?

Sep 29, 2014 3:45:17 PM


What is Scooter Compression?

Scooter Compression is basically the way in which mechanicaly your bars, forks and deck are all attached together on your pro scooter. The three most popular types of scooter compression are:



What the different types of compression do:

All Compression systems are good in some ways hard in others. One of the toughest scooter maintenance questions is which scooter compression do I ride?  Today we will break down each compression system and tell you about the highs and lows of each. Hopefully after reading this you will be able to decide which compression system is right for you.

Compression brake down:

  • HIC Scooter Compression
    • HIC was basically the first compression system besides threaded. Its been around for a long time and for good reason. It works. All you need to run HIC is a threadless fork with a starnut, a threadless headset, the HIC shim, and oversized bars with a slit. HIC is hands down the simplest out of all three compressions to use. All you do is tighten your bolt to the starnut in your fork, put your bars on, and you're good to go. Its fairly strong and doesn't come loose often. If you're looking for something reliable, easy, and light, HIC is the play. Check out the image and video below:
    • Bisected HIC viewHIC_Compression_Lucky_Scooters

 

  • SCS Compression
    • SCS was designed by Proto Scooters owner Andrew Broussard and now almost every company makes it. SCS is for sure the strongest compression system out there. First I'll tell you the best parts about riding SCS. It’s super strong. You’re never going to have to worry about your bars snapping down a huge gap. Also it looks really sick and keeps your scooter super dialed. The bad thing about SCS is it’s the heaviest compression system. Its not like way heavier than HIC but it is a little. To tighten SCS all you do is tighten the bolt to your starnut then put your bars with out a slit into the SCS and tighten it little by little one bolt at a time until its fully tightened. If you want something beefy, super strong and good looking, go for SCS.
    • Bisected SCS viewSCS_Compression_Lucky_Scooters

 

  • ICS Compression
    • ICS is hands down the lightest compression system. It’s also the weakest and toughest to use. To ride ICS you need a long ICS bolt, standard size bars, a threadless fork without a star nut, and a threadless headset. The reason why ICS is a pain is because to tighten it, you have to take off your front wheel. Also its not very strong because the only thing holding it together is one long bolt. If you're a weight freak, and you don't have a lot of money to spend, shoot for ICS.

    • Bisected ICS viewICS_Compression_Lucky_Scooters

We hope the couple of pointers about compression helps you find what best fits your riding needs.



Final thoughts:

Remember; make sure to pick the compression system that best fits your riding needs and budget. Make sure to learn how to take care of your ride and it will get you far! As always you can get all of your riding and compression needs @ Luckyscooters.com.

Kota Signature Scooter Review

Sep 24, 2014 5:30:00 AM

The highly anticipated Kota signature scooter will be available online and at your local shop soon. Kota is on his scooter 24/7 thrashing it hard so you know this thing is going to hold up really well. Lucky Title team rider Bayley Maxcy went over the whole Kota Sig scooter and highlighted everything that makes this thing dialed!! If you’re even slightly considering buying it, Bayley would recommend you read the following article. And if you’re not considering buying it, reconsider.

kota-sig-trick-lucky-scooters



Lets start with the bars. The bars are Kota’s signature “Tukno Bars” and man are they sick. They come 22” high by 22” wide and are made with 4130 chromoly. They have a cool V design with a dipped cross bar in the middle for support. They’re super light and come with the Lucky no nubbin grips installed. This scooter also has Lucky bar ends and comes with the Lucky composite HIC.

Next we have the clamp. The X-clamp designed by none other than Kota’s brother, Hunter Schuetz comes on this complete. Its cool design and strength keep this scooter tightened perfectly from day one.

The FSA Orbit CE integrated headset comes stock on this complete. Nothing really to say about this headset. Its fast, smooth, and gets the job done.

Now on to the fork. The Vector fork is the fork that comes on this scooter. It has not yet been released by Lucky. Its basically a slimmer looking and lighter SMX. I've seen my teammates test these over the past few months and they have held up great. You wont have any problems with the new Vektor fork from Lucky.

 

 


Next we have the Kota signature Atom wheels. These things are lighting fast. I have ridden them before and it feels like you're riding on clouds when you first get them. They have been tested for some time now by Kota and with the amount of speed he hits everything at, you knows these things fly. They come 110mm with Lucky 9 speed bearings installed. These wheels also have some sick Lucky and Kota graphics on the urethane.

Last but definitely not least we have my personal favorite part on this scooter; the deck. The Kota signature deck is perfect. It’s 19.5” long by 4.25” wide. It’s .25” wider than the Crew and .5” smaller length wise than the Strata deck. It has the same headtube look as the Strata so its basically a smaller Strata and a beefier Crew. Just like all the other Lucky decks its integrated with flat sides and comes with a black Lucky flex fender brake. What makes this deck really unique are the graphics on it. Dakota is always traveling around the world visiting new countries and going to new parks so why not make a deck to fit his personality and lifestyle? Well Lucky did just that. On the bottom of this deck you will find a lot of countries names that he has traveled to. You can also see his name in big black writing along with his signature on the bottom near the brake. Black griptape with some cool Kota graphics come stock on this complete.
kota-signature-deck-bottomJust like his clean style this scooter comes in a clean all black color scheme. If you wanna ride what the 3 time world champion rides pick up Kota’s signature Lucky scooter when it comes out.

Travis Sheaffer | Lucky Wheels Rider | Lucky Scooters

Sep 23, 2014 12:11:47 PM

Lucky Scooters just added their newest member to the Lucky wheels team and, with that, comes a new video showcasing that rider's skill. Travis Sheaffer is not a name that I have heard of before, but this video was nothing short of jaw-dropping. I was shocked at some of the rail tricks that this kid landed in here. The ender and the huge kinked rail were both pure craziness. You definitely have to give this a look if you haven't and show your friends while you are at it. Enjoy.

Fueling up!!.. diet?...be prepared to go out and shred longer

Sep 18, 2014 1:30:00 PM

Lucky Title team rider Bayley Maxcy is at it again!!! He will be giving you some tips on how to fuel up allowing you to keep on riding longer and getting to that next level.

lucky_rider_bayley_maxcy_fule_post

From Bayley:

Fuel:

Without a top notch diet it’s going to be challenging for you to ride hard 24/7. After you read below you should be able to be more prepared and more ready to go out and shred.

Get in shape:
We all know scootering is good exercise, however lifting weights and running is going to get you more in shape. If you wanna really progress in the sport, exercising can really help your game. Set up a workout plan and stick to it. I guarantee that after a few weeks of working out you will feel super good and strong while riding.

Mommy meals:
Another huge part about staying in shape is eating right. Don't be scarfing down candy bars for breakfast. Make sure you are eating the right amount of calories for your age/weight. Eating a good breakfast in the morning can really help you get through the day with a better amount of energy.

Check out this link from the helpguide.org for more information on proper nutrition for kids and teens.


Kill "excuses"
Bottom line, kill all excuses. If you work out, exercise, and eat right you will be in great riding condition. Even if its cold and wet out you can still do these things which will definitely improve your riding.
