So what gives? At first glance, the all new Aztek Architect pro scooter looks exactly like its big brother, the Fountain pro scooter. The cost savings comes from steel forks and bars, which add a little bit of weight. But don't let that deter your from picking up the Architect. With the same dimensions as its big brother, it's a great whip for the street and will fit a wide variety of riders due to its roomy dimensions. One feature that we love about the Architect is that we have never seen SCS compression on a $159 scooter. If you want a dialed scooter that stays dialed, pick up the all new Aztek Architect.
The Aztek Architect Complete Scooter is built around a 5.5" by 21" deck with an 83 degree headtube angle. Because the deck has boxed ends, we consider the Architect Complete Scooter deck to be a street deck but it's equally at home at the skatepark or in your hood. PRO SCOOTER DECKS that are 21-21.99" long will be ideal for intermediate to pro riders that have been in the sport for a while or for those scooter riders that need a little more footspace. The Aztek Architect Complete Complete features standard outer diameter T-Bars that are 26" tall by 22" wide. Bars this size are ideal for riders who are 5.5 to 6 feet tall. Bars and forks work flawlessly together due to the SCS compression system, which is the most effective compression system money can buy. Finally, the Aztek Architect Complete rolls on 110mm x 24mm wheels, which are the most popular size among riders.If you are looking for a capable street scooter, the Aztek Architect Complete Complete Scooter might just be the scooter for you!

When swapping out parts on a complete, make sure your bars, compression system, clamp, and forks all use the same compression type. Compression systems drive which bar, compression system, clamp, and forks that you purchase. Know which compression system you want to ride before swapping out parts – SCS, HIC, or IHC. For example, if you are swapping out your IHC forks for SCS forks, you will need to purchase new SCS forks, SCS bars, and an SCS compression system. Bars come in oversized or standard inner and outer diameters and with or without a slit. The slit drives which compression system your bars are compatible with – no slit (scs), slit (hic, ihc). Forks are typically either IHC or HIC/SCS. SCS compression systems are required for an SCS setup (bars without a slit and SCS forks). The SCS compression system must be compatible with your outer bar diameter – oversized or standard. If your SCS comes with a shim, it will work with either size outer diameter bar. HIC compression systems are compatible with oversized steel bars with a slit and a double clamp with a shim or an oversized double clamp. IHC compression systems are built into your forks and are compatible with any double clamp with a shim and aluminum bars or steel bars with a standard inner diameter.
Wow, that’s confusing. We know - changing one part on your scooter often means swapping out multiple parts on your scooter, which can get expensive very quickly. If you have questions about compatibility issues when swapping out parts, please ask us before making a purchase.
Grips are one of the least expensive ways to make your scooter unique and stand out from the crowd so they are typically one of the first things that riders swap out. Make sure that new grips have bar ends that are compatible with your bars - aluminum or steel. Unless you have an air gun to remove and install the grips, you will most likely need to cut off the old grips and install the new ones with a little bit of soap and water.
Grip tape is critical to riding a pro scooter but, let’s be real – riders love it because it looks cool. When you are looking for a way to differentiate your scooter, there are thousands of different styles and color ways of grip tape, which makes it a very cost effective way to customize your scooter. Decks vary vastly in size so, if you are swapping out grip tape, make sure that it is approximately the same size as your deck. Larger sheets of grip tape may have to be cut down to fit your deck, while smaller sheets may not fit a larger deck. In other words, we don’t recommend buying smaller sheets for grip tape for a large deck. However, you can always buy a large sheet of grip tape for a smaller deck but it may require cutting to get it to fit properly.
Finally, when swapping out wheels, the outer diameter and width of the wheel must be compatible with both your deck and forks. Some newer decks and forks use a 12mm axle, as opposed to the conventional 8mm axle. Make sure that, when swapping out wheels, that your wheel is compatible with your deck and fork axles.
