2016 Deep Roots Collection by Lucky Scooters

Oct 28, 2015 1:23:40 PM

Lucky is rolling out its new lineup of pro scooters and parts for 2016...the Deep Roots Collection.

Before designing the next evolution of Lucky products we spent a lot of time looking back at the beginnings of Lucky and the pro scooter market in the US. For our new products we wanted to bring back our extreme focus on quality, strength, and design that built our loyal customer following. We also felt it was important to infuse our Northwest roots into the product and graphics.

We are proud to announce the Deep Roots Collection lineup of pro scooters....The new EVO, Covenant, Prospect, and a redesigned Crew, along with redesigned and newly designed pro scooter parts collection.

We worked with top riders around the world to design and develop the Deep Roots Collection and spent countless months searching for the best materials, finishes, technologies, and factories that could build to our Lucky quality standards. The result is a collection of pro scooters and parts that is our best work since the beginning of Lucky in 2009. We partnered with a local Northwest artist to design our bottom graphics with true artistic intention.

The Art & The Artist 

With the new 2016 Deep Roots Collection we were brain storming and searching for something that would represent our northwest roots in a unique, creative way. So when we heard of an amazing local artist named Shogo Ota, founder of Tireman Studios, we had to connect and collaborate with Shogo to create our deck bottom art for our 2016 Deep Roots Collection. 

Although Shogo hails from Japan, he has called the Pacific Northwest home for more than a decade. Shogo graduated with a BFA from the University of Idaho, which landed him an internship at Modern Dog, located in caffeine city, Seattle, Washington.

Shogo Ota established Tireman Studio in 2012 with the help of his wife, his cat, his dog, his bunny, and a guy named Peter Shin. He has been teaching at SVC (School of Visual Concept).

Everyone at Lucky feels honored and stoked to have colloborated with Shogo on our new lineup and we know you will be even more stoked on the bottom art of the new Lucky Scooter. They are truly one of a kind.

Lucky How to kickless

Oct 13, 2015 6:00:00 AM

One of the newest tricks to the scooter scene would have to be the kickless rewind. Hated by some and loved by others the kickless is seen at almost any skatepark you go to.

Kaleb Kier Kickless Lucky Scooters

There’s a few tips and tricks to learning the kickless that I’ll go over with you. If you’re struggling with this trick read the following tips and check out the helpful video!

  1. The first thing you should be able to do is heelwhip rewind. This will help you to understand the motion better and help you when you go to land the kickless.
  2. You need to have a good flyout ramp where you can get lots of air.
  3. The kickless is 99.9% arm strength. The hardest thing for people is understanding the motion of the kickless. Once you kick out the heel whip you’re going to need all the strength in your arms to push the deck back to your feet without kicking it (hints the name “kickless). Practice the motion a ton of times flat and make sure you have it down.

One of the biggest tips I can give you is when to use your strength to push the deck back. The instant after you throw the heelwhip you need to throw the deck back the other way. Don't wait till the heelwhip is close to your feet to do the kickless, it won't work. You have to do the kickless right when you throw the heelwhip.



I hope these few tips helped you. It’s a really easy trick just practice the motion a ton of times flat before you try it. Below you can find a good video that should also help you. You can also check out other tricks here

Lucky Pros at Pro Scooter Series Australia

Sep 29, 2015 11:00:00 AM

Stops 1 & 2 - Pro Scooter Series 2015

Pro Scooter Series is the biggest and highest paying scooter competition (competitions) in the world. The series contains a few smaller competitions and then a final competition where first place walks away with $10,000! The first two competitions are done and Lucky had a HUGE showing at both events with pro riders Capron Funk and Corey Funk. Below you can read a little write up on the competitions. Enjoy!

More info on Pro Scooter Series can be found here -

Stop 1 - Bunker Skatepark
Lucky flew the Funk brothers out to show Australia how the USA does it and they have showed quite nicely so far. The first stop was at Bunker skatepark where Capron and Corey both threw down insane runs and had everyone on the live stream hyped. A Lot of people thought Capron should have came out with the win but he ended up placing 2nd with his bother Corey taking 4th! Congrats to both of them!

Stop 2 - The Park
Stop number 2 was held at The Park which is a street like plaza. With another live stream available, everyone at home was eager to see who would take the cake at stop number two. Well once again, Corey and Capron came ready to ride. Corey killed it so hard. From backflips down stair sets and uprail grind combos it was clear that he deserved first and that’s exactly what he got. Capron rode really hard to and came in with 4th. These guys are unstoppable!

How to Backflip

Aug 26, 2015 9:00:00 AM

One of the most frequently asked questions riders ask is “how do you backflip on a pro scooter?”. If you really want to learn how to backflip on your scooter, we're going to try and break it down the best we can. Keep in mind there are also a ton of videos on Youtube that you may find helpful! Keep reading below....

Lucky Pro Rider Bayley Maxcy doing a Backflip


There are a few things you need to be able to do before you try and backflip.

  • You should be able to drop in and carve around bowls with ease.
  • Also you should be able to flow around the park without getting speed wobbles.
  • The next thing you should be able to do is backflip on a trampoline. Being able to flip on a trampoline will help you when you finally go and try it on your scooter.
Now that you have all that down you're ready to attempt the backflip. The best place to learn to backflip is hands down at a foam pit. It doesn't matter if you land on your neck or your back, you’re not getting hurt. Once you get to a foam pit you’re ready to huck. Get a feel for the foam pit and the take off before it. What you need to do in order to flip is simple; lean back with your body and head. That's honestly all there is to it at first. Once you get better at them you can tuck your knees and get them to look cleaner.

Right as you start to feel your front wheel pull off the ramp, just lean back and your body will flip. Don’t pull back too early otherwise you could scrape your head on the top of the ramp (this barely ever happens though so dont worry about it happening to you). Also make sure you commit! It may not feel like you’re going to rotate it but bailing while halfway through a flip is never a good thing haha. Once you have them into a foam pit just play around with them and get them dialed. You’re now ready to take them to resi/wood/concrete. Imagine the ground you are back flipping onto is just like the foam pit. You now have the muscle memory of how to backflip. As long as you commit to it and want to do it, you will land it.

Like we said earlier though, we highly recommend you wear a helmet and pads. You don't wanna be landing on your head without a helmet on. Once you build up and huck it to concrete/wood you’ve officially landed a backflip! Play around with them until you get them 100% dialed. Flip out of smaller things and bigger things, mellower things and steeper things. Once you get backflips good you can start to add tricks to them such as backflip whip, backflip tuck, etc.

We hope this helped you and I hope you try backflips soon. If you cannot get to a foam pit, just bring a mattress to your local park and huck haha (We know kinda crazy!!). If you are just going to attempt it right away to a mattress or straight concrete, We would highly recommend you know how to backflip on a trampoline. The last thing you want to do is bail on concrete. The biggest thing while flipping is just to commit. If you commit, you will rotate it.

Here is a good video that also shows how to backflip:
