Razor, one of the top manufacturers of extreme sports toys and gear for kids also makes some great kick scooters that are suited well for both kids and adults. This post is focused on just 2 of them though, the Razor A5 vs A6. At the onset, the A5 and A6 look pretty similar. We’ll do a quick comparison review of the two scooters and let you decide which might be best for you.
Both the A5 and A6 come with the rear fender brake. It’s the same braking system that most that have used scooters are accustomed to. The brakes are operated by stepping down on the rear fender which acts as a friction brake on the rear wheel. The best part is it’s effective and simple.
Who is the Razor A5 and A6 recommended for?
Again, both of these scooters are designed for similar riders. They are both recommended for riders ages 8 and up and can carry a max weight of 220 pounds. Basically they are built not only for your kids but for your teens and even adult riders. These scooters are for just bout everyone.
What size are the Wheels of the Razor A5 vs A6
The Razor A5 Wheels are large 200 mm (about 8 inches) spoked wheels. The Razor A6 has the largest wheels of Razor’s scooter line with 250 mm (10 inch) spoke wheels. Both the 8 inch and the 10 inch wheels are considered larger wheels for kick scooters. Some ask if the wheel size makes a difference. Short answer, Yes. Here’s a few reasons why. Larger wheels provide for a smoother ride. You probably already know this but compare what you know about riding a skateboard and how small the wheels are and how often you might get stopped in a crack or a small rock compared to riding a bike. It doesn’t happen. The larger the wheel the smoother it will rider over those rough surfaces. Because of that you can also expect better shock absorption when you do hit a bump in the road. Larger wheels also provide a longer glide distance per push which means less effort as you are cruising down the street.
What it the handlebar height?
When comparing the handlebar height of A5 vs A6 we find another similarity in that like most scooters the handlebar height is adjustable. The A5 handlebar goes as high as 38 inches while the A6 handlebar height tops out at 42 inches. It may not seem like a big deal but getting the right height can make a difference in the comfort of your ride. If you or your kid who you are going to purchase one of these scooters for is pretty tall you may want to consider the A6. Who would want to ride around having to hunch over a bit because you outgrew the scooter?
Is there a kickstand?
Yes, both the Razor A5 and A6 scooters come with a kickstand.
Which costs more the A5 or the A6?
