Razor, one of the top manufacturers of electric ride on toys also makes some great kick scooters that are well suited for both kids and adults. Today, we’re going to look at two of their most popular kicks scooters, the Razor A5 and Razor A6.  At first glance, the A5 and A6 look pretty similar but there are a few differences that you need to be aware of. We’ll do a quick comparison review of these scooters and let you decide which might be best for you.

Who can ride the Razor A5 and A6?

These scooters are designed for the same type of rider.  They are both recommended for riders ages 8 and up and can carry a max weight of 220 pounds.  The A5 and A6 are great kick scooters for both kids, teens and even adult riders.

How tall are the handlebars on these scooters?

When comparing the handlebar height of the A5 vs A6, both scooters have adjustable handlebars. The A5 handlebars goes as high as 38 inches while the A6 handlebars height tops out at 42 inches.  It may not seem like a big deal but getting the right handlebar height can make a difference in the comfort of your ride. Who would want to ride around having to hunch over because you were too tall for the scooter?

What kind of brakes do these Razor kick scooter use?

Both the A5 and A6 come with a rear fender brake. 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.

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 the entire Razor scooter lineup 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 and the short answer is, “yes.”.

Here are 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. The larger the wheel the smoother it will rider over those rough surfaces. 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.
