The Lux A5: A Scooter on the Cutting Edge
If you look outside on a nice day, you will see both children and adults on scooters, and the brand that you tend to see the most is Razor. The A5 Lux is a great option that is versatile, which means that whether you are simply riding around the neighborhood or showing your tricks to your pals, this scooter is right up your alley. I decided to get a few of them for my teenaged nephews this year, and they were thrilled. Let's take a closer look at the A5 Lux to see what makes it stand out as a great kick scooter to purchase.
The first thing that you will notice when you see the A5 Lux scooter is the bright color options that are offered. Both the blue and the pink options are bright and vibrant, but if you are looking for a more subtle look, there is also a silver option available. The durable aluminum design is complete with a smooth finish that features Razor logo stickers on the front of the scooter as well as on the deck.
In addition, the deck has a good amount of grip, which makes it a great scooter to perform tricks. The foam on the handles is also extra thick so that they are more comfortable to hold, especially when you are going down a bumpy road.
Ease of Transport and Storage
This scooter is very lightweight, which means that it is easy to fold up and carry when you need to take the train, the bus, or a cab. When you fold the scooter, you will even be able to squeeze it into a locker at the gym or under your desk at work with ease. If you do not want to fold up the scooter, there is also a very convenient kickstand that you can use.
What it's Built for
This scooter is designed for teenagers and adults, so it is able to accommodate larger individuals. The A5 Lux is designed for taller individuals, which is why the handles raise to a pretty decent height. It is also designed to accommodate up to 220 pounds of weight, which means that most individuals will be able to ride this scooter. If you are thinking about purchasing this scooter for your child, I'd recommend that they are at least eight years of age.
If you are looking for a simple mode of transportation to commute to work, class, or to run errands, this scooter is perfect for you. It is also a great option for tricks at the skate park, so take it out and have some fun.
Level of Maneuverability & Control
The wheels on the A5 Lux are pretty large, which means that they are able to travel faster than smaller wheels, but they feature a hollow design that is not as sturdy as they could be going across gravel. The interior area of the wheel is also painted to match the rest of the scooter, which makes it really pop while you are riding it.
It is a great scooter for commuting from point A to point B though, so if you can stick to sidewalks and streets, then this is an ideal option. The Deck is narrow, so it may be difficult to place both feet on it at once. This scooter steers like a bike, so you will have a lot of control when you are turning corners and riding downhill.
- Key Advantages
