Razor A5 Lux Adult Kick Scooter
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.
Fuzion Cityglide B200 Adult Kick Scooter
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.
Exooter M1850 6XL Adult Kick Scooter
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’.
Micro Kickboard White/Black Adult Kick Scooter
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. The model does offer very limited color options and does not include a carry strap. However, the 2-year warranty is something that buyers will certainly appreciate.
Xootr MG Adult Kick Scooter
The Xootr MG boasts of a solid magnesium deck and frame which is the lightest deck structure and lowest center of gravity compared to all previous models/designs from this American company based in Pennsylvania. The extra wide deck also makes it possible for both feet to be comfortably placed side by side inside the deck. The rear wheel brakes are primarily operated through the handle bar, but there is an option for rear fender brakes. Even under slightly wet conditions, the brakes work very well and have a very good grip.
Globber Adult One Adult Kick Scooter
This one is a product of the French scooter giant, Globber. It features a sophisticated folding mechanism that can be operated hands-free which can be accomplished by simply using your foot to kick the folding button. This allows the scooter to lock into place while standing upright and also makes it easy to store even in the tiniest spaces. It can also be pulled like a trolley, which eliminates the need to carry it. The handlebars are 19 inch wide and very ergonomic with handgrips that increase comfort by absorbing shock from the pavement. The height of them stem makes it a suitable choice for people over 6 feet tall. Although the Globber, doesn’t offer a lot of color options, it still remains very stylish.
