Envy One Complete Scooter Review
The Envy One Complete scooter is Envy’s entry-level scooter with so much to give, even at only 7 pounds. This is the same, little solid Colt model from 2015/2016, which was renamed for 2017. It’s an affordable option for those looking for a durable scooter with features similar to higher-priced models. Envy designed the One Complete to be entirely customizable, allowing riders to add on any of Envy’s other higher-end parts as needed.
The Envy One Complete requires a bit of assembly and customization (such as placement of stickers). Out of the box, this base scooter package comes with the headset, deck, bars, grips, clamp and Fork/IHC Shim. While the headset, forks and deck are already pre-assembled, and grips pre-installed, customers have to assemble the two-piece bars, attach wheels, tighten clamp and put colored stickers on.
DURABLE FORK – While the scooter comes with 100mm wheels, the 4130 chromoly steel Envy Colt fork included is durable enough to accommodate wheels up to 120mm.
UNIQUE BAR – The bar looks like a smooth singular bar, but it is actually two pieces of standard chromoly steel bars that assemble perfectly together. They are connected from the cross bar to the steertube, making the seam (except for a tiny rubber grommet) virtually invisible.
MULTIPLE COLORS – Choose from a wide range of colors, such as white, red, teal, yellow, red, pink and green. All parts of the scooter are made all-black, except for the wheels, sides of the hand grips, and sticker decals.
HIGH-QUALITY BUILD – The Envy One Complete is built with 4.45W x 19.50L integrated deck and headset with an 82.5 degree headtube, heavy-duty double clamp, thermal-threaded two-piece fork with built-in IHC compression, and 100mm 5 spoke wheels with ABEC 9 bearings.
Envy is an all-in-one shop that offers complete pre-built models, and a complete selection of parts, including decks, bars, clamps, bearings, wheels, forks, headsets, hand grips, pegs, brakes, griptapes, and bar extensions.
Another standout feature of the Envy One is the inclusion of an IHC Compression (Internal Hidden Compression). This particular compression system was developed by the Blunt/Envy brand. Unlike the original HIC compression, where IHC was based, this compression sysem is built into the fork. It makes the scooter lighter, since riders can choose from steel standard or aluminum bars, lighter clamp, or other lightweight parts.
The Good and the Bad
The idea behind Envy One Complete may lead to extreme reactions – either you’d love it or hate it. Kids, who mostly rode this scooter, often have positive experience with the Envy One Complete, particularly if they came from a Razor or other toy-like scooters.
Ideal for kids 8 to 12 years old, the Envy One leads the entry-level category for several reasons: it’s durable, well-designed, customizable, and performs smoothly during twists, turns, and brakes.
