Below is a sample of online reviews for the Razor A5 kick scooter
I did not realize, when my mother finally relented and bought me a Razor scooter for my 10th birthday, that riding that silver and emerald vehicle 3 blocks to one of my many cat-sitting jobs would end up being good training for a career at NYCeWheels. At the time, I was quite set on enjoying my Razor, so I bore with patience the slings and arrows of riding any conveyance with such tiny wheels: my teeth chattering as I lurched over rough asphalt, my eyeballs bouncing cartoon-style in their sockets, or being ejected from the deck at the occasional collision with a menacingly oversized pebble. I figured that these hazards were simply an innate part of scooter-based travel, and there was nothing to be done about it.
The reason my precarious travels on the original Razor were a good preparation for my current job at NYCeWheels in that they gave me a point of reference from which to analyse the build and ride quality of the many scooters that we stock. Most recently, I took a little joyride on the Razor A5 adult scooter, and I must admit I was pretty impressed.
The folding mechanism on the Razor A5 is very easy to use--just pull a lever, open the scooter from its folded position, and a spring-loaded bar locks the stem into place when the handlebars are fully upright. Folding the A5 scooter is just as easy. Razor even thought to include a tiny kickstand, which makes for a nice way to display its handsome brushed aluminum chassis. On the blue variant that I rode, the metal body was complimented by subtle camo-like patterned decals on both the front-facing logo and the deck tread. Some may find the look a bit over the top, but I found it rather charming--the A5's brash character reminded me again of the fun I had on scooters as a kid.
Overall, I found the Razor A5 to be a speedy and fun scooter. While it lacks both the bullet-proof construction of the KickPed and the elegant craftsmanship of the CityKicker, it certainly will get you from A to B reliably at an unbeatable price, and you may even have fun while you do it. I think this kick scooter is perfect for anyone needing to keep up with a family member who may be rolling a bit too fast to keep up with on foot, or for someone who wants to get their toes wet in the world of scooters before investing in a long-term two-wheeled companion.About the Author
