Tips:
Tip 1. Handle Bar Widths:
Look out for the different handle bar widths options when you’re buying the Razor A5. There are 2 types available. If you’re taller, be sure to opt for a wider handlebar if you had a choice. The wider bar gives you more control and stability. Alternatively, you can change the handle bar’s width by having a little fun DIY modification project.

The Razor A5 Lux in RED one seems to have a wider handlebar in some instance as shown in the video “Razor A5 Lux Red vs Blue comparison and Review” below. And appear narrow in the video “Razor A5 Lux Adult Scooter Video Review” below. So there are some variables in the Handle Bar Width even when it’s the exact same Red model being sold.

Tip 2. Grip On Deck
The Razor A5 Blue Kick Scooter’s Deck has a larger grip area than the Razor A5 Red. If you need more grip area, opt for the blue version.

Tip 3. Kick Stand
It’s understood that the red Razor A5 doesn’t have a kick stand for it and the Razor A5 blue one does. Do you need a kick stand?

Tip 4. Replace the bearings to get more miles per kick
Bones Bearings Reds Bearings

Replacing the wheel bearings on your kick scooter is easy (5 minutes tops) You’ll need an Allen key and a mallet, plus a new set of bearings to get started. Just follow along the steps shown in the video below:

Razor A5 LUX Adult Kick Scooter
Our Score 7.9 out of 10
Our Verdict A good scooter for adults to start out. Light, compact and easy to fold once you learn how to do it. Quality of product is what would be expected for the price. A overall crowd-pleaser that’s prefectly priced for the function, value and fun it delivers. Some regular tightening maintenance is expected for loosening of scooter joints to ensure a safe ride. Unsuitable for wet and rough terrain. Great for short city commutes. For a smoother ride and similar price, you might want to consider the similar Razor Carbon Lux Scooter if you do not need your scooter to be folded.
