If you are looking for an affordable but high-quality, entry-level scooter that will be the foundation for amazing stunt tricks in the future, you can never go wrong by choosing the VOKUL S2 Tricks Pro Stunt Scooter.
There is an age-old saying that says that we should teach our children while they are young. For one major reason, this is a fact because our young age is a very formative time for learning, not just academically; but also, in other aspects of life, such as learning tricks with a scooter.
True to the statement; often, the best in anything, be it scooter-related or otherwise, is usually that one person who learned something early in life, particularly as a kid.
Riding on a scooter is simple and straightforward enough to learn which makes its adoption very easy. But to those who demand more than just needing a pair of wheels to take them places, a scooter easily shifts as a tool for exhibitions to performs various possible stunts with. Which is not any different from other sports like skateboarding, rollerblading, or doing a bicycle motocross.
But in order to learn those tricks efficiently and in the best way possible, you must also have the right gear for it—one strong enough that can take the brunt of whatever twist and turns is being used it with. Otherwise, the experience would be sub-par with the best and even motivation-breaking.
If you or any in your household is aspiring to be that person, do not shatter the dream. Rather, foster it by giving a Vokul S2 scooter.
Simple but Robust Design
For a price below $100, the Vokul S2 is within the tier of affordable scooters available in the market. At its price, common intuition would suggest that the product itself is of sub-par quality from the best. To a certain extent, yes—but not totally.
While a certain part of the scooter may feel unrefined—specifically, around the connecting parts of the handlebar and deck area which could have been linked more seamlessly as ostensive with the “black” variant—the Vokul S2 is actually made using premium, aircraft-grade aluminum and carbon steel which guarantee durability.
Unlike other kinds of metal, the aluminum material at the deck is not likely to bend or be dented with just mere fall or other forms of abuse resulting from the need to perform tricks. This choice of material alone easily separates the Vokul S2 from some cheap knockoffs whose cheap pricing also connotes a “low-quality” product.
However, not everything about this scooter is built to last. This specifically concerns the pair of wheels which provides glide to the scooter itself—made using polyurethane materials, which is plastic, the roller wheels are not necessarily invulnerable to wear and tear with prolonged use.
Fortunately, the aforementioned problem is easily offset by making the set of wheels replaceable when needed.
Design-wise, there is nothing particularly noteworthy to tell that is not seen from any other product of its ilk in the market.
Built to be functional than sophisticated, the Vokul S2 is easy to set up from its dissected parts. In as fast as 5 minutes, you will literally be riding on this scooter after you start building it from scratch.
This level of convenience may seem irrelevant, but the benefit becomes more obvious when you get to encounter pieces of hardware that significantly pose more difficult and more time to build, such as what building a convoluted scooter from its divided parts would be like.
Of course, the process is ideally performed by an adult who knows a thing or two about simple mechanics. But this is also a job which a smart enough teen can also do, with little to no error. The overall difficulty of the procedure is further made easy by the instruction material that comes with the package, which itself is a major boon. After all, how can a scooter which only requires simple logic and three bolts to set up could be any hard?
Ornamentations may not be everything for a scooter which is intended to be used for functional reasons than for display. But there is a glaring difference between a scooter which comes stuck with a sloppy “embellishment” from one which has the right colors and prints placed almost perfectly.
If there is one thing which the VOKUL S2 had right, not discounting the gripe about the minor fault in the seemingly crude hardware build, is that of its aesthetics. Of the two available colored variants, the credit goes best to the “white” version which cleverly hides the unwanted bulges on its connecting parts while at the same time revealing a color scheme that blends flawlessly to it.
What you get, therefore, is an end product that is as pleasing to the eyes as it is to ride on. Although not particularly “show stopper,” it is still a good experience having something that is substantially good to look at as it is with actual use.

As far as functionality and durability goes, you can never truly go wrong for opting for this scooter, especially with the intent of nurturing a particular talent with regards to its usage.
