Root Industries Type R  Review


Once again Root Industries has created another beast of innovation in the freestyle scooter market with their new Type R complete scooter.

After  Root Industries’ successful first batch of complete scooters which included the Invictus, Lithium, RP and RS Completes. Root Industries has decided to up the ante yet again and combine the best features of their four prior complete scooters into one ultimate denizen of the streets, king of quarter pipes, box jumps, and everything in-between.

Root Industries has always been at the forefront for innovation in the scooter industry and have stood out from the crowd with their bold unique colourways, and the Type R is no different. The Type R range leaves you spoilt for choice with the classic rocket fuel, gold rush, and also the fan favourite blue and pink splatter.

Type R complete comes in at a highly competitive price point which rounds out the trifecta - innovative, functional, and affordable. This is a scooter that caters to all riders from beginner to advanced which really is a dream come true!

This scooter is Scooter Hut’s hot pick for one of the best value and high quality scooters available for Christmas 2019.
