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!

Shop here for all of your favorite brands, including TSI, Phoenix, TiLT, Magray, Lucky, ENVY, Grit, Crisp, AO, Apex, Fasen, Addict, Sacrifice, Proto, Phase Two, ODI, Madd Gear, District, Triple *, Pryme, Bones, Royal, FSA, Animal, NECO, Elyts, Raptor, FLIK, PRO-TEC, Boxes, Ethic, RAD, and Hella Grip.

  1. Knowledgeable StaffEveryone who works at The Vault is living the scootering lifestyle. We’re 100% staffed by people who love this sport – everyone here spends a whole lot of their free time scootering. We even have a pro on staff. So if you’ve got questions or need help with anything related to scootering, our team members know what they’re doing and have the right answers for you. You can get the help you need in person at our pro scooter shop, or on the phone any time during business hours.
     
  1. Expert Maintenance & RepairsThe reality is, scooters often take a beating. When something goes wrong with your scooter, or if it just needs to get dialed up, you can trust us to fix it right. What if you don’t live nearby to bring your scooter in to the shop? No problem. Just ship it to us. We’ll fix it up and ship it back, anywhere in the continental U.S. Just try to get that kind of service from some other pro scooter shop!
  1. Easy InstallationsWhat’s the easiest way to get your parts installed or your scooter assembled? Have the experts at The Vault do it for you! Unlike other pro scooter shops, we’re happy to ship it to you installed and ready to ride.

If you’re going to be in the area please stop by and hang out with us. You can see all the latest trends, pick up some new parts, get your scooter dialed up, and then head down the street to Culver Skate Park to show off your stuff.
