Razor A2 Kick Scooter Review
I thought that this scooter would be a great way to get the kids to go outdoors as well as a great birthday/Christmas present for people who don’t want to spend outrageous amounts of money. The scooter is lightweight, versatile and provides a very smooth ride. It is perhaps one of the cheapest products in its category and it has been around for years with many great reviews.
The product comes in Clear/Black, Blue, Red, Green and Purple and weighs only 6 pounds. In addition to being light, it is also compact. It can easily be folded for transport. I thought that this would be useful for me because I could put it in my backpack and use it on the way home from work to get home a little bit quicker.

Razor A2 Kick Scooter is Easy to Fold
The Razor A2 scooter thankfully comes in the box folded up to save space. It can then be unfolded by pressing the little lever in the middle, so don’t freak out if you can’t open it right away.The scooter comes in a bunch of different colors. I personally chose the green color, which I think looks the nicest. The wheels are in-line wheels made from polyurethane. The wheels glide pretty nicely and are virtually silent.
Multiple Features Makes Razor A2 Kick Scooter Great
The deck is made with aircraft-grade aluminum and it comes with multiple features. Among these features is the patented wheelie bar, extendable handle and collapsible body. The scooter is designed to hold up to 143 pounds but it can hold a lot more. Because of the simplistic design and the lightness of the body, it is possible to do a lot of tricks with this scooter. The wheelie bar allows you to get leverage with your foot in order to pop the scooter up and pop that well sought after front wheelie.
The Extendable handle is helpful because it allows different kids to ride it. This works well if your child has friends over a lot or if you have two kids that you want to share a single scooter. The rear wheel brake makes a second appearance in the A2 and is very useful as a safety feature. This is a very intuitive braking mechanism that lets you stop quickly without getting off the deck.
Razor A2 Kick Scooter Basically For young Adults
The scooter is mostly designed for kids ages 5+, but can also be used by young adults. Just exercise caution when using this scooter, as it has the potential to be dangerous. Make sure you are wearing all the necessary padding in order to prevent injury.
When purchased from Razor, this product comes with a 6-month warranty. The scooter is very durable and well-built. Overall it is a great way to keep kids outdoors and give them exercise. The downside is that it has the potential to be dangerous if it is not ridden with caution.
Razor A2 Kick Scooter have Huge Positive Reviews
I personally liked the scooter when I took it for a test run. I wanted to see if other people shared my opinion so I checked out some of the reviews on Amazon. I found that the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. I’m sure that it makes sense for a scooter that has been selling well since the early 2000’s to also have very high reviews. I aggregated the information that I found and determined that people generally like the scooter for how durable it is and how smoothly it rides. This is the primary reason behind the 79% 5 star reviews.
The 1 and 2 star reviews only made up 4% of the total customers, so they can almost be disregarded completely, but some of the feedback was helpful. One review said that the A2 falls in the middle of the A1 and the Pro. They said that the A2 is slightly slower due to the suspension and that the Pro is significantly better at tricks. This may not be a reason not to get one but it is definitely helpful to consider when purchasing the scooter.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the A2 compare with the A3?
A: The A3 has larger wheels for more stability. You can tell they're bigger, but it's not such a difference that, say, a kid would get picked on for having a babyish scooter.
Q: Do the back wheels light up and if so can this feature be disabled?
A: No, not on this model.
This product makes a great gift for kids that love to play outside. If you live on a street with very few traffic, or if you have a place you can take the kids after school that has smoothly paved roads, this is probably a good investment. Based on what I’ve seen, I would say there are better scooters out there if all you are interested in is doing tricks. That being said I think this is a good all around choice and is well worth the money.
