1. Razor A5 Lux Scooter - Editor's Choice

Razor, the maker of award-winning products using cutting-edge technology, is again delivering a popular kick scooter in deluxe size. A5 Lux Scooter is equipped with 200mm extra-large urethane wheels, making it much safer to use, and providing the smoothest ride around. It has a super strong, aircraft-grade aluminum T-tube and deck, supporting riders of up to 220lbs.

Razor integrated a patented rear fender break and folding system, making the scooter one of the easiest to fold scooters around. Its sleek adjustable 18-inch handlebar, desirable for an average adult rider, and short deck make the A5 Lux a very compact scooter to store and maneuver. The quick release folding latch allows you to fold down in under 5 seconds.

An excellent scooter for the price, A5 Lux is one to beat. Compact, sturdy, and yet lightweight, weighing in at just 8.5lbs. A5 Lux comes in blue, pink, and red colors. Another remarkable feature is that it unfolds right out of the box and ready to go, no set up needed.

2. Razor A Kick Scooter

The Razor A scooter is one of the original and classic kick scooters Razor introduced. The Razor A Scooter features a single folding action mechanism, top line 98mm polyurethane wheels, ABEC bearings, a rear-step friction brake for quick stops, and adjustable handlebars. It is made from extremely lightweight and durable aircraft-grade aluminum and it can hold up to 143lbs of weight.

Like the A5 Lux, this scooter is easy to fold up for storage or for carrying in your backpack. Weighing only about 6lbs, this scooter is very easy to transport. The aluminum T-tube and deck is strong and lightweight, and the responsive foam grips help riders stay comfortable.

Although the handlebar is adjustable, what Razor missed in this item are the limited or short handlebars, which could challenge tall riders using it for the first time. Nevertheless, with so many advanced features, this kick scooter is sure to set your mood and enjoy a smooth ride. It’s a great scooter for the price, doesn’t require assembly, and comes in multiple colors.

3. Razor A2 Kick Scooter

Crafted from Razor’s original A model scooter, the the A2 has a slick aluminum style with the addition of a number of impressive features. The aircraft-grade aluminum tube and deck make this scooter sturdier than the A version, yet, at only 6 lbs, very lightweight. It has a patented rear fender brake system that ensures quick and easy stops.

This 2-wheel kick scooter has a spring-less shock system that makes bumpy pavement feel smoother. The 98mm inline-style urethane wheel with ABEC 5 bearings of this razor kick scooter offer a comfortable ride. Additionally, there is an enhanced finger guard and wheelie bar feature. The foldable T-tube and deck of the A2 Kick Scooter makes this scooter a portable one and can easily be thrown into a gym bag. There is no assembly required and you’re ready to go.

This version of the Razor A2 can support up to 143lbs of weight. Overall this scooter is fun and will pass the test of time. Even though there are issues to riders with bigger shoe sizes, this is just a minor problem and you will not have to worry too much about it.

4. Fuzion Cityglide Adult Kick Scooter

The design of the Fuzion Cityglide is superior in many aspects compared to other kick scooters in the market. It is made of a lightweight aluminum frame for easy carrying, with a weight of just 10lbs. There is also a secure folding mechanism for quick storage and transport. The hi-speed oversized wheels create excellent traction and smoothness over any terrain, with a large rear brake providing safe stopping power. It handles bumps well and flies down smoother pavement quite quickly. The T-bar not only has adjustable handlebar stem, but it also has a larger diameter, which helps strengthen the entire steering column.

Its sturdy construction allows 165lbs to 220lbs weight, which is pretty impressive. It also has a non-skid surface for your feet. In addition, the Fuzion Cityglide’s assembly time is fast and easy. You can choose from a variety of colors such as yellow/silver, red, and green. There might be a few issues with the workmanship compared to the Razor A5 Lux Scooter but overall I am giving it an excellent mark for its performance and design.

5. Fuzion Cityglide B200 Adult Kick Scooter

A good quality entry-level scooter for the price, Fuzion brings us another product constructed of top quality materials that is built to last.

The CityGlide B200 has a safety and a two-way-stop feature, a dual rear brake system that can be activated by hand brake or by your feet. Like the classic CityGlide, the B200 provides the same superior and fast gliding performance. It has hi-speed, oversized 200 mm PU wheels with a lightweight, solid aluminum frame that is low to the ground, making it effortless to kick. With that being considered, the CityGlide B200 is indeed more stable due to the rider’s weight being concentrated on the front wheel.

For a daily and speedy commute around town, the CityGlide B200 is a flawless find with its easy and innovative folding mechanism, which allows you to take this 9.9lbs lightweight scooter anywhere, including public transit.

6. Hudora RX-205 LUX Big Wheel Fold Kick Scooter

You can’t ignore the specs and quality of the RX-205 for your commuting needs. It provides a comfortable and fast riding experience when a speedy commute or trip around town or school is essential. The oversized 205mm anti-abrasive, shock-absorbing, high rebounding PU wheels and a lightweight, solid, low-to-the-ground aluminum frame are just some features making it competitive in the market. These features make it stable and effortless to kick.

The RX-205 has a German Patented 3-Seconds Easy-Folding Mechanism, an equipped kickstand, and shoulder strap, allowing the rider to take this lightweight scooter anywhere. The front Steering Head-tube contains 60+ mini marbles and special lubricant oil ensuring smooth and safe navigation.

A Fender-Spray Protection made of steel for brake covers the rear wheel of RX-205 ensuring durability. The deck has a non-slip surface with plenty of foot space, which guarantees you a solid grip for your feet. It can hold riders up to 220lbs and it only weighs 8.8 lbs.

Compared to the Cityglide, this scooter wins when it comes to the locking mechanism, overall weight and quality. Unlike the Cityglide, the RX-205 is ready to use upon unboxing. Just unfold it and go.

7. Urban 7XL Deluxe Kick Scooter

The Urban XL Deluxe Kick Scooter is one of the best kick scooters for adults and kids which you can buy under $100. It has all the standard components of a typical high-quality scooter but perhaps its greatest selling feature is its adjustable handlebar. Its handlebar can be shortened or lengthened within the 36”-42” range. If you’re wondering what else can this kick scooter offer, a few of its key features are enumerated below.

This scooter has 8” high-grade polyurethane wheels. They’re large enough to give your riding experience enough speed and excitement. Like most kick scooters, its maximum weight capacity is set at 200 lbs. But obviously, this would be a horrible news if you weigh more than 200 lbs.

It’s foldable so you can easily carry it around. When folded, this kick scooter is about 37” long and about 5.5” wide. It’s also worth mentioning that this scooter comes with a strap which makes this scooter ultra-convenient to carry around. Its dual shock suspension is also one its greatest selling points. This feature ensures that your riding experience runs as smooth as possible even if you pass by bumps and uneven surfaces.

All seems great with this kick scooter except for the fact that it’s built is made up of aluminium which essentially means that wear and tear is inevitable. Nevertheless, it’s a minor bump since you probably won’t be able to find a 100% scratch proof scooter these days. Overall, I’d say it’s a great scooter that is priced just right.

8. Aeroactive Adults & Teens Scooter

The Aeroactive Adults & Teens Scooter comes with dual suspension located on the front and rear to help counter vibrations while you’re on the move. It is designed to be carried anywhere, beating uneven roads and surfaces. With its 200mm wheels, the push-off requirement during use is reduced. Plus, they limit any risk of going over the bar, making riding more comfortable and safer.

The quality ABEC 5 bearing brings an improved, top notch gliding performance. The frame deck is made of solid aluminum and it has a weight capacity of 220lbs. The scooter weighs at 13.5lbs with easy-to-fold mechanism for relaxed carrying and transport.

The manufacturer included a removable water bottle holder for your easy hydration. It is also important to note that this scooter is not designed for sport, freestyle or stunt usage.

9. Razor California Longboard Scooter

The California Longboard scooter is the ultimate stretch ride with the newest super stylized deck and an integrated kick tail. It’s a great scooter and can accommodate bigger adults. It has adjustable handlebars for the choice of ride you desire. Features include 32in extra-long polypropylene deck, consisting of a 7-plywood laminate, and large urethane wheels. Like most Razor scooters, it is equipped with a patented rear fender brake helping the rider stay in control. It also comes with adjustable handlebars to accommodate riders of several different heights, a rigid downtube and soft rubber grips for superior hold.

The California Longboard has a steel T-tube and frame construction, and a rigid welded down tube for improved performance stability. Weighing 9.2lbs, it can support a rider up to 220lbs and is offered in blue and a stunning wood deck design.

Take note that this scooter has some portability concerns because it doesn’t fold. Yet, it is still very easy to pack by lowering the handlebars making it fairly easy to carry over your shoulders.

10. Micro Sprite Kick Scooter

This scooter offers micro quality and style for a great price. With a variety of colors to choose from and a fantastically smooth glide, the Sprite is a favorite. Both teens and adults would truly enjoy the features of this scooter.

The Sprite is strong and lightweight, at only 5.5 lbs, with an adjustable height handlebar that extends 34in above the deck. It can support a maximum rider load of 220 lbs. Aside from being a great travel and commuter scooter, it can be folded up quickly and easily for carrying or easy storage. The built-in kickstand allows quick upright parking, which is absent on some scooters in the market. It's a great way to roll on a family trip and a cinch to carry around.

The Sprite comes completely assembled, with a patented double-button folding system. To unfold, simply loosen the clamp then push in and hold the 2 buttons on either side of the front wheel. Once unfolded, you can ride and go. The two-way kickstand can be kicked forward or back when you're ready to ride.

Our Recommendation

To wrap up, the Razor A5 Lux Scooter clearly is my choice and the winner for this roundup for the adult scooters. There is no question about its increasing popularity. With its extra large 8” urethane wheels, it offers the safest and smoothest ride compared to the smaller versions that the Razor Company introduced. Not to mention the patented and integrated rear spoon fender break feature it has. Undoubtedly, the A5 Kick Scooter is a great way to keep up with the kids on their smaller scooters. A superb and quality scooter for the price!
