The Type R is Root Industries latest entry in their pro scooter lineup and, make no mistake, the Type R is not your typical entry level scooter. Root gave the Type R an entry level price and deck size but just about every other part on this scooter is an intermediate to pro part. The Type R deck has 2 1.25" wide flat rails to lock in grinds at the skate park, as well as plastic front and rear decks plugs. With 110mm wheels, the new R2 grips, and 4 killer color ways, this $169 packs all of the punch that a comparable $300 pro scooter does!
The Root Type R pro scooter is built around a 4.8" by 19.6" deck with an 82.5 degree headtube angle. Because the deck does not have boxed ends, we consider the Type R pro scooter deck to be a park deck but it's equally at home at the skatepark or in your hood. PRO SCOOTER DECKS that are 19-19.99" 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 Root Type R features standard outer diameter Y-Bars that are 22.8" tall by 21.65" wide. Bars this size are ideal for riders who are 4.5 to 5 feet tall. Bars and forks are tied together via an IHC compression system, which is a favorite among pro scooter riders. Finally, the Root Type R rolls on 110mm x 24mm wheels, which are the most popular size among riders.
This was a gift for our grandson. I was amazed by the quick shipping time. After consulting with his parents we decided to order it on a Thursday afternoon. His birthday was on Monday and we never expected it to be there by then. I was pleasantly suprised when I recieved an email shortly after order telling me it would be delivered Monday morning by 9am. True to their word it was delivered at that time. Phenomenal service, and the ordering website was easy to navigate. He loves the quality scooter. Great product, great service!
Very good service.thank you

Reached out via text right away when one item in my order was out of stock to ensure a replacement would work while keeping fast shipping. My son's b-day during the pandemic was a welcome surprise. Great scooter, great customer service. Plus the rocket fuel/neo chrome/oil slick is all the rage.
Staff contacted me promptly and resolved my issue. Happy with the purchase and customer service! My son loved the scooter as well. Thank you!
