There are 3 different types of brakes for scooters. Transportation and kids scooters usually use spring brakes. The most common brake type on stunt scooters is the flex fender brake, which has a one-piece design. Some people prefer to change out their brake on their stunt scooter for a brake stopper, which essentially disables your brakes. This is practical for people who do a lot of tricks and therefor doesn’t want the brake to be in the way – be aware that you cannot use the brakes with this model.
