6 Best MADD Gear Scooter Reviews 2018
1. Madd Gear VX6 Pro
The VX6 range of scooters are perfect for the new rider looking to move into the world of entry level Pro scootering.
All who looked at this great scooter felt it had an aura of ‘top -end’, all credit to the basic, but high-quality Pro design, the idea being they can eventually upgrade parts as their ability progresses.
The MADD Gear VX6 Pro is a sturdy, well built, smooth riding and silent scooter, at a great price point for entry level into the Pro arena!
(TIP: It’s worth noting, when in use we found those over 5’ 5” tall may need to raise the bars. Now that VX7 Pro is here look out for bargains!)
2. Madd Gear VX6 Team
Highly recommended for the intermediate rider, looking to move up in the world, this thing looks great!
Like all the VX6 range this is a solid scooter, sporting a strong, wide 4.5” 6061 T4 & T6 heat treated and fluted deck with a 3-degree concave, fat welding around the deck to neck union, integrated IRC forks, 23” wide handlebars (24”H) and 110mm MADD Gear Pro 88A high Rebound Filth alloy core wheels.
We found it a superb trick scooter, the VX6 Team sounds SO solid when it lands. There is no play on any part of the scooter after a week freestyle tricks. An impressive scooter!
3. Madd Gear VX7 Team Scooter
The VX7 Team Edition Scooter has a well-deserved reputation of best value for money, standing in the middle of the VX7 product range, in between the VX7 Mini Pro at the cheaper end, and the top-end all conquering VX7 Extreme.
Like all the VX range, these fantastic scooters are rugged, high quality construction ‘Pro’ scooters, The VX7 Team utilizes a 4.5” concave deck, MADD Gear HIC compression and 110mm super-fast alloy core wheels with the new K-2 ABEC 9 bearings.
These scooters don't make a sound, are very smooth to ride and the kids absolutely loved them. Super-light at 8.5lbs, this spec cannot be beaten at this price point!
4. Madd Gear Alloy Folding Scooter
The Alloy Folding Scooter is MADD gear’s first entry level, value-for-money, portable a mix of FUN and convenience for the younger riders.
A super lightweight of just 5lbs combined with the easy folding mechanism, mean this toy can be ridden to school, then folded away till the end of class.
It comes in yellow, blue and red with comic-book style prints over the top. The 100mm hard wearing PU with nylon core wheels are fast and super smooth.
The brake system is pretty good too. A rugged, light weight and sturdy first fold-up scooter. At this price point we can’t find anything to touch it.
5. Madd Gear VX7 Extreme
This year MGP (MADD Gear Pro) have really pulled out all the stops, utilizing top draw upgrades to produce the new world beating MADD Gear VX7 Extreme Scooter. Going with the current trend for larger wheels and bars, the VX7 Extreme uses very fast, smooth 120mm Cold Forged Alloy Filth Core wheels and longer 24” W x 25” H alloy bars with heavy-duty clamp.
All things said, we are excited to announce this is the highest spec MADD Gear (MGP) ‘Extreme’ Scooter of ALL time. This thing rides, tweaks, tricks and stunts like no other!
In its latest iteration the MGP VX7 Extreme deck is yet lighter and stronger using highest quality 6061 Heat Treated alloy. It is 4.5” wide with a small concave of 3 degrees robotically welded to the deck base. No two MADD Gear Pro VX7 Extreme deck is the same, the full color hydro-graphic application makes each deck graphically unique.
6. Madd Gear VX7 Mini Pro Scooter
With its (18" H x 22" W) 4031 Japanese chrome alloy upsweep Fluted handlebar and 4” wide VX6 6061 T4 & T6 heat treated, fluted & concave alloy deck coupled with the 100mm MGP 88A alloy core.
High Rebound PU wheels and MFX Integrated & Sealed IHC Headset the ‘MADD Gear VX7 Mini Pro’ is proof that good things come in small packages.
We found this sturdy scooter to be very well designed with excellent handling traits.
For the price we think this is THE high-quality Pro scooter for the many talented, but smaller riders, up to around the height of 4’ 6” max.
