The Zinc Story
Welcome to the UK’s number 1 selling scooter brand!
We design and manufacture a range of scooters, bikes, skateboards and skates
Zinc started life in 2009 with the aim of creating innovative and fun scooters for kids to take to the streets or the skate park with. We started off with humble ambitions and by 2012 we were the UK’s #1 selling scooter brand!
With proud British roots, Zinc has branched out to cover a whole range of active, outdoor products including scooters, bikes, skateboards, skates and electric scooters, with a selection of protective gear to keep kids safe. Our ethos has always been to produce the tools kids’ needs to get out and have fun.
Zinc began with our innovative and fun feature scooters. There was the Fuse, with its sparking brakes and the Nitro, which zoomed with realistic motor sounds. Over the years we’ve created and designed a whole range of these exciting scooters with added extras because we believe that even scooting deserves a little extra kick!
Not satisfied with scooters alone, we brought out a range of skateboards designed with the start skater in mind. Our classic Nollie, Reg, Switch and Mongo skateboards have helped many get into a life of skating.
In 2010, we noticed the growing trend of stunt scooters hitting the UK and wanted to make this amazing sport accessible for every boy and girl across the country. We worked hard to bring stunt scooters to the mainstream with the launch of our first stunt scooters such as Swarm, Bedlam, Viper and Mayhem, paving the way for our Team Series stunt scooters the following year.
One of our biggest innovations came in 2012 as we amped things up a little bit with the introduction of electric scooters to our range. Our Volt range keeps on growing to this day and shows no signs of slowing.
Staying true to our roots, we continue to bring our new and innovative designs for both feature scooters and stunt scooters. It’s our belief that kids of all ages should be active, whether they chose a scooter or a bike or a skateboard. That’s why we aim to provide everything from entry level skateboards to our pro Team Series stunt scooters.
