Should you go for the scooter that comes in the coolest color combinations, or the one that can go really, super fast? Well, we are here to help. In the next few paragraphs, we will discuss details of the Razor A5 Lux Scooter, and help you make the right choice. We also have talked a bit of Razor A5 Lux Scooter in our Best Pro Scooter review page.
Razor A5 Lux Scooter review
Razor A5 Lux Scooter is basically the granddaddy of all the scooters, and the brand that people most often associate with great scooters. Right off the bat, this one will look distinct due to it’s large wheel size. In the next few paragraphs, we will dive deeper into the features on this scooter and help you make up your mind.
Patented Folding System:
As always with Razor, this scooter features their patented folding system. This means that the scooter folds up, making it easier to carry or store. Whether you are driving home from the skate park with mom or simply walking yourself down the street after a quick ride, this scooter will easily fold up and allow for simple carrying or storage. With this folding system, storage in cars, closets, or pretty much anywhere else becomes a breeze.
This Razor A5 Lux Scooter features both a t tube and deck that are made from aircraft grade aluminum. What does this mean? Well, simply put, it probably means that neither of those two parts are ever going to break. Anything strong enough for an aircraft is certainly going to make for a scooter that will not break in the skate park or on the street. The aluminum also makes the scooter strong. The maximum weight limit on it is also a sturdy two hundred twenty pounds, so strength is definitely a key benefit here. However, as with many other Razor scooters, people will complain about durability. Aluminum is a relatively strong, light weight material, but it is not going to be as strong as steel or some other materials other scooters are made from. Do not be surprised if this scooter picks up some dings along the way.
The retractable kickstand makes storage a breeze when you do not want to have to fold up your scooter. Still planning on using your scooter in a little bit, but want to take a quick break? No problem! Just pull out the kickstand and lean your scooter on the kickstand, that bad boy will be ready to go again as soon as you need it.
Rear Fender Braking System
The rear fender break system makes stopping incredibly easy, and helps keep riders safe. To use this breaking system, simply press down with your foot on the rear fender and you will come to a stop as quickly as you could possibly imagine. This is great when you need to stop unexpectedly, allowing riders to easily come to a rapid stop and potentially preventing accidents.
Adjustable Handle Bars
Adjustable handlebars also make this Razor A5 Lux Scooter easy to ride for taller kids. Nobody wants to have to stoop over their scooter to ride it, and the handlebars adjust so as to be an ideal scooter for tall kids who may struggle with different models. Finally, at a mere eight and a half pounds, this scooter will be easy for just about anyone to carry.
The wheels on this Razor A5 Lux Scooter, as we talked about in the “First Off” section, are big. Small wheels and below par stability has often been a big safety complaint about people when they talk about scooters. The wheels on this particular scooter are 8” and made from urethane. These wheels, bigger than regular scooter wheels, allow for more stability and a safer ride for all users. This is a great feature that should definitely help ease the concerns of parents concerned about the safety of their child’s scooter.
- Easy to store anywhere
- No assembly required
