About The Vault

The Vault: Your Pro Scooter Shop

In 2012, The Vault opened its doors just a few blocks away from our local skate park in order to sell pro scooter parts and completes. We serve as a creative space for today’s scooter riders, future riders and parents who live within the community. Our storefront in Culver City has become the local hangout and home for scooter riders living in this urban, SoCal stomping ground.

We’re proud that The Vault has quickly become known as the go-to authority for scooter parts and completes.

Scooter riders unite!

You can get the help you need in person at our pro scooter shop, or on the phone any time during business hours.
