Envy Scooters Offer Unique Design Features and Top-Quality Materials

Envy Scooters is an Australian company that specializes in creating high-performance parts as well as complete scooter packages. Previously known as Blunt Envy or Blunt Scooters, this company prides itself on designing most of its parts in-house with the support of staff with industry experience and first-hand knowledge of skating, scooting, and biking. Envy Scooters offers a number of unique design features, including extra-wide decks, metal-core wheels made from an advanced-formula polyurethane, and an Integrated Headset Compression (IHC) system that provides a threadless fork that can accommodate standard-sized bars.

Extra Wide Decks

Envy's extra-wide decks are made from the same high-performance chromoly ("Chro-mo") and aluminum metals used in professional-grade BMX bikes. Wide decks give riders plenty of room to get a comfortable stance and good grip that can make riding easier and tricks smoother.

High-Performance Polyurethane

Envy also offers metal core wheels that are fully compatible with forks and decks from other manufacturers. These wheels are composed of a proprietary urethane compound that provides extra grip and durability.

Internal Compression Fork

Envy has developed a threadless compression system in which a narrow fork column allows standard-sized bars to fit onto the compression shim. While many scooters still employ threaded forks, compression systems offer a stronger fit that will not become wobbly over time. Threaded systems are prone to loosen as the scooter is used, requiring the rider to make frequent adjustments in order to maintain optimal stability. Envy's uses a system known as an Integrated Headset Compression, or IHC. This system differs from other threadless designs, such as Hidden Internal Compression System (HIC), in that it do not require the use of oversized bars. This is a unique advantage for riders who would rather avoid oversized bars that can add extra weight and interfere with free movement.

Whether you are a serious hobbyist or a seasoned professional, Envy Scooters offers a few unique design features for those looking to get just the right balance of equipment for a perfect ride.
