How To Install SCS (Standard Compression System)
Hi I am Casey and this is how to install your standard compression system. Andrew Broussard, owner of Proto Scooters, first designed the SCS Compression System. A combo of durability and ease of use make it the sports standard for compression.
Today you’ll find the likes of VertX, East2West, and few others making their own SCS, but Proto and Tilt’s SCS are the best.
How to Install Your SCS Camp
Now a few years later, many companies have made their own SCS clamp. VertX, East2West, and probably a couple others I’m not remembering have made SCS clamps but Tilt’s SCS and the Proto SCS clamp have proven to be the best out there time and time again. Now that you have a bit of history and knowledge about the SCS clamp I will demonstrate how to install this compression system to your scooter in this video.

- Clamp, ( Suggest Proto or Tilt ) comes with compression bolt and topcap
- Threadless headset
- Deck ( Standard or integrated )
- Threadless fork
- Allen Key Set
- Oversized or Standard sized bars WITH NO SLIT
Things to Remember:
The clamps will increase the height of your bars.
Tilt increase: 1.5 inches
Proto “Brass knuckle” clamps increase: 2 inches
Proto Baby SCS increase: 1.5 inches
Check support. Make sure your gear is compatible. Certain clamps only support Standard sized bars, read carefully when choosing which clamp to purchase. Tilt SCS standard clamps ( not the LT clamp ) support oversized bars while the Tilt LT clamp does not. Same with the Proto, the Full Size “Brass Knuckle” clamp supports oversized bars while the Baby SCS clamp does not support oversized bars
Be safe. If you young have a parent or guardian help you cut down your handlebars. The job requires a hacksaw or reciprocating saw so be very careful. Even for experienced riders and people who have been working on scooters for a long time this can be very dangerous as a slip is very possible when cutting too fast or not paying attention. Wearing gloves wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Measure twice, cut once. Remember to take off 1.5 inches or 2 inches off of your bars including the slit to keep the same bar height when transferring to SCS compression.
