If you’re looking to get a taste of what adult kick scooters feel like without breaking the bank, then the Razor A5 Lux is the perfect one for you. Its aluminum deck, frame and handlebar make it a lightweight yet durable choice. This model sold a lot of units and has been on the best-seller list for a long time. Prices for it have considerably gone down though since it was first released so you can definitely snatch a bargain for one of these in the market today. This scooter is great for both kids and adults. However, it doesn’t have handle brakes and uses only rear fender brakes. The warranty offer is quite limited though and it doesn’t include a carry strap, so that’s something to consider.

The Fuzion Cityglide is a lightweight, all-aluminum scooter that has become quite the crowd favorite over the past few years. Some would say it compares to the Razor A5 Lux, but better. Both have very similar dimensions, but the Cityglide comes with the dual rear fender and handlebar brake which makes it possible to operate the rear brake in two ways.  Overall, the Fusion Cityglide offers the best value for money when it comes to budget scooters for adults.

For a budget scooter, the Exooter M1850 6XL certainly offers a uniquely smooth ride that sets it apart from the rest. One of the reasons for that is because of how they configured the wheels where the front has a much larger diameter (240mm) than that of the back (180mm). This creates stability and makes the handlebar kept raised off the ground even more. so tall riders don’t have to stoop. The carry strap that is included in the design doesn’t need to be removed when riding. The other factors that contribute to the great ride experience is the ABEC 9 bearings and the front suspension that absorb much of the shock. It has both a handbrake and a rear fender brake so it is both convenient and safe. The Exooter has a very effective quick spring system that lives up to its name and even has a drink holder for you to relax when you’re cruisin’.

This Swiss-designed scooter is a low-maintenance, no-frills model which uniquely offers a special integrated combination lock which means you don’t have to worry about losing keys. Although the deck follows the narrow width common in traditional kick scooters, the large wheels were made much bigger for commuting purposes.
