Razor A5 Scooter

The legendary scooters that started it all! shred the pavement, bust out big tricks, or just cruise around town in style. With innovative design, quality construction and cool features, these are the scooters that sparked a revolution. The popular kick scooter comes in a deluxe size and is built for taller riders.

A lot of adults also use the Razor A5 Lux Scooter as well when running errands, commuting and around the neighborhood. One reviewer stated their original motivation was to have something that they could easily keep in the trunk of my car that  could be used to get closer to events (like fireworks) where it is hard to park close by. With this scooter you can park 2 miles away and easily get closer even if you need to weave in and out of people walking. It is much more agile than a bike.

The Razor A5 Lux Scooter makes it over some pretty big bumps on the sidewalk without a problem.

This scooter is very sturdy and is appropriate for an adult appropriate for adults (one reviewer was 5 ft, 11 in, 165 pounds).  They stated they use the A5 for commuting and just for fun. When they commute, they carry a backpack that typically weighs around 15 lb; so the total weight on the scooter is around 180 lb. The rated capacity is 220 lb, and the A5 feels very sturdy carrying them and their backpack.

Here’s what one of the owners had to say

The tires are firm but you wont rattle your teeth because the tires are so Tall. Since they are so large, very small imperfections in the road are not noticeable. It glides very well.  It is even easier to fold than the previous Razors.  (Dr. Wifredo V)

    This scooter is a fantastic adult scooter+useful modifications! (legend) LEGEND* (products I review that are absolutely fantastic or have been incorporated to my daily life will be marked with a “LEGEND” symbol)UPDATE 03/22/16 MODIFICATIONS LIST+ADDED PICTUREIn order of importanceIt has:-Adjusted the bottom screw where the deck meets the handlebars to my liking. This along with a piece of Velcro tape on the other side of the screw where deck meets handlebars to minimizes noise+vibration tremendously. I like it JUST when the locking takes a bit of force to lock into place.-hair tie tied against the folding pin, screwed down to the kickstand to minimize vibrations.-Reds ceramic bearings. China one, not swiss. There is no difference. (Ebay because I found it for $35)-“AOR power” headlight tail light set. (Amazon)-local skateshop grip tape. (No more razor symbols, thank god!)-“Gulaki” (Amazon) bike mount-“Mirrycle incredible brass bell” (Amazon)UPDATE…

    Razor has an answer to the Xootr I have so many push scooters I bought from Amazon. My all time favorite was the Goped because of the high weight capacity, and its soft comfy tires. For those that are thinking of getting a scooter, you can read the following comparison based on what I have experienced.Tires and Ride:1. Razor A5 – Tires are firm but you wont rattle your teeth because the tires are so Tall. Since they are so large, very small imperfections in the road are not noticeable. It glides very well. Although the tires are narrow, since it is so tall, it would take a pretty deep crack on the pavement to make me fall over. Score 9/102. Xootr – Tires aren’t too large so you feel more vibration. The longest glide of all scooters. Extremely fast on smooth surfaces. More dangerous on imperfect roads, so can really be used on very well paved roads if you want to be really safe. Score 8/10.3. Goped – The Rolls Royce of Scooter tires. These tires are big and fat, so you don’t have to…

    For a 52 year old secretary it’s kinda like a death wish – but happier At 52 years old I may have bitten off more than I can chew but in spite of my bleeding ankles and the feeling that I just escaped death while riding this for only .7 miles, I like it! It unfolds right out of the box and is ready to go. The handlebars in the photo are 13inches and many reviewers thought they were too narrow for adult shoulders. The handlebars on this scooter are actually 18 inches and that seems to be more desirable for the average adult scooter enthusiast. So far I can’t switch legs without stopping, I nearly killed myself rolling over a small crack (I’ve learned to pull back a little on the handle bars over cracks) and if I take one hand off of the handlebars, say, to push up my glasses, I wobble and then crash badly. Using this kick scooter really gives the standing leg a tough workout as it is always bent or bending – like posting on an English saddle but using only one leg at a time – unless coasting when you can straighten both legs (ahhhh….muscle relief!)…
