Drifting Scooter – Non Caster VS Caster

Finding the Right Drifting Scooter

There are a couple of different types of drifting scooters on the market and we are going to walk you through deciding which drift scooter is going to be right for you or your child. Drift scooters are commonly broken up into 2 categories – Non caster (traditional) and Caster. We are going to review both two non caster scooters and two drifting caster scooters.

Comparing Non Caster VS Caster Drifting Scooters

Drifting Scooter - Non Caster VS Caster

The first two scooters that we are going to look at are made by Huffy. Huffy uses a more traditional approach (non caster) to scooter drifting, very similar to trike drifting where a large, slick plastic rear wheel is used and drifting is initialed by using a brake.

The last two drift scooters that we will look at are made by Razor. These Razor drifting scooters use a 360-degree inclined rear caster wheel to make the scooter drift. This type of scooter is commonly know as a drifting caster scooter.

Which is better – Caster or Non Caster Drift Scooters?

It really comes down to personal preference. A non caster drift scooter will definitely require a bit more finesse to get the scooter drifting. Using your own body movement along with foot braking can also take some time to master. This can be challenging for some younger or novice riders. With a caster drift scooter, its much easier to get that scooter drifting back and forth.

Bottom line, both approaches will have you scooter drifting in no time! Let’s take a closer look at these awesome scooters!
