Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover!
At first glance, you may think the Tilt Passage Build is just another street complete, like most of the other scooters in Tilt’s lineup. If you take a closer look, you’ll find that Tilt designed this particular scooter for the park riders. Unlike the street scooters in Tilt’s lineup, the Passage Build utilizes aluminum bars, rather than steel, to reduce weight. They also replaced the standard aluminum drop outs with nylon drop outs to minimize weight and maximize 5-0’s and feebles. Cut outs in the headtube and bottom of the park sized deck make this one of Tilt’s lightest weight and balance set ups ever!
Custom Build with Premium Parts
Tilt occasionally makes one-off builds of limited edition products, which they deem as SELECTS. While the 3 new complete builds, Theorem, Passage, and Contact, were not designated as limited edition SELECTS, they are one of a kind completes that feature premium parts dedicated to each build. The grey color of the deck hasn’t been used by Tilt before and, in conjunction with the custom red/black Passage grip tape, and all-new 120mm x 24mm Stage 1 Race wheels, we think the Passage build may just be the cleanest pro scooter that Tilt has ever built. Pair up those parts with SCS compression and you have a dialed in complete.
Made with Intermediate to Pro Park Rider in mind
The dimensions of the Passage Build set it up perfectly for the 8 – 14 year old park rider. The deck dimensions are prototypical park dimensions at 5 inches wide by 20 inches long. The deck dimensions, paired with the deck cut outs in the headtube and deck bottom, make this one of the more whippable decks on the market. Bars are a moderate 21 inches wide by 24.5 inches tall, making them the perfect fit for most riders, other than the smallest and tallest riders.
Ride Worry Free.
Tilt is widely regarded as one of the highest quality scooter manufacturers. Tilt’s use of ultra premium scooter parts results in an industry leading low warranty claim percentage.
The guys over at Tilt build some of the best street scooters in the world but the Passage crosses the line over into park world. While its overall reduced weight do make it a great park scooter, the Passage Build also utilizes T bars and a boxed deck that allow it to perform admirably on the street. So, whether you are looking for a lightweight setup for the park or street, we highly recommend the Passage Build. With its unique color combination and premium Tilt parts, the Passage Build will not disappoint.

BARS, COMPRESSION, CLAMP, FORKS
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.
