Razor A6 Features
As it is a simple kick scooter, this section’s primary focus is to discuss the riding experience of this scooter. Additionally, we will discuss the build and design quality of this scooter.
1. Riding Experience
The user experience of this scooter is impressive. Apart from some minor drawbacks, this scooter features simplicity and convenience. Let’s dive into the main feature of our research.
The size of the wheels on this ride is quite bigger. The materials are lightweight and durable. The bigger size provides an exceptionally smooth performance. For flat terrains, the kicking causes shallow energy loss. So, you can easily ride this for a more extended time.
Even for the maximum rider weight (220 lbs), the scooter showed a very smooth performance. The long handlebar gives full support for taller riders.
The handlebars are also very smooth as in that they have a very low (or no) level of rattling. Even though this ride is foldable, the handlebar seems a perfect fit for everyday riding experience.
This product features a Rear Fender brake. Rear Fender brakes are convenient for balanced foot control. But if you are on a sideway surface, the rear fender may not work well. So use your foot flatly on the road surface along with the rear fender brake. Note that the overuse of the rear fender may heat the wheel quickly.
The scooter weighs 5 kilograms or 11 pounds (10.98). This weight is convenient for daily carrying. You can even fold it up and carry it in your long route journeys. The ride is suitable for kids as well. Kids can easily take it for their daily usage.
2. Build Quality
For better scooting performance, any scooter must have a quality build material and proper weight balance. This Razor scooter does the balancing very well by combining lightweight elements in a fantastic build design. Let us have a quick look at the build materials and other specifications.
The primary material of the frame is Anodized aluminum. The deck can withstand 100 kilograms of rider weight, as mentioned before. The scooter is only 10.98 lbs. But the lightweight material is quite durable even after long term usage.
The handlebar is rattle-free and has foam grips for comfortable gripping. It has excellent support for taller riders. But it might be harder to use for shorter persons.
The wheels of this scooter have an Aluminum frame. It is spoked and has a double bearing. The urethane wheels are right for harsh roads and can last for a long time.
There is nothing much to describe the rear fender brake that comes along with this scooter. The Brake is pretty straight forward. The Rear Fender is made of reinforced metal that is highly durable.
The look of this scooter is very premium. The company has put quite a show for its design quality. Also, the design is built for taller riders. So the parts are designed as such. There are two color options for this scooter, white and silver. Both have impressive finishes. Here are some of our findings for this scooter.
Long Top Handlebar
As we have mentioned earlier, this scooter is made for taller riders. It features 42 inches of handlebar height. This design element is quite impressive compared to other available products in the marketplace. The design is substantial, and the foam grips are convenient for daily usage. The grip portions are foldable.
This scooter features the largest wheel size in this series. The wheels make the ride smoother in various road conditions. Large wheels are also great for low effort riding experience.
The low deck design can be seen in the whole series of Razor’s kick scooters. This scooter has 13.4 inches of deck length. Combining this with low deck height and you will get a smooth riding experience for taller riders.
Low Rattle Handlebar
The handlebar of this scooter is designed for no rattle performance. But if you are a regular rider, you might notice a little bit of rattling. This minimal rattle is quite negligible, and for flat surfaces, you won’t even notice rattles at all.
If you fold the scooter, it becomes easy to take and carry with you anywhere you like to. The folding mechanism uses a single hand-screw system for convenient usage. The scooter is quite comfortable for even children.
