My school run is about 1 kilometre each way and very congested with cars so we try to walk when time permits. The children have their micro scooters and frankly I had been slowing them down, so I looked for a more sturdy scooter capable of taking adult weight so we could all zip along together.
The bearings on smaller scooters quickly wear out when ridden by an average adult and the small wheels can stop suddenly when you hit the smallest bump or ridge in the pavement, vaulting you face first! The Razor A5 Lux has bigger wheels and therefore rides the bumps without fear of injury and with the platform being so low to the ground, your centre of balance is easy to keep.
I have had the best fun whizzing along the pavements, toning my legs and improving my fitness at the same time. We get to school quicker than it is possible in a car and of course it is completely pavement legal. I would highly recommend this scooter to school runners, commuters or just for fun. The only thing I would warn you about is that if you are 75 to 100kg (it's max recommended load) you may have to moderate your speed downhill or the brake may struggle to stop you in time! I have perfected the running dismount which gives a shorter stopping distance if you're in trainers, but you really can wear your Sunday best and still arrive at your destination elegantly.
Go on, release your inner child, as a woman the wrong side of 40 I promise you, it turns the body clock back!Razor A5 Lux Kick Scooter
