- Lightweight - the scooter only weighs 2.7kg, which is really lightweight for a kick scooter for older children. This makes it easy for parents to carry when needed as well as easy for young kids to control and manoeuvre. It also makes it a good scooter for travel. It will easily fit in the boot of your car and it's super lightweight to carry on public transport.
Easy to fold and carry - it's quick and easy to fold and when closed down, it's easy to carry too - thanks to it being so lightweight. It folds down to a compact size and can fit in a bag when folded. This again can make it easier to carry.
Weight limit is 100kg - this means that it can last children many years as they grown
Handlebar height - the handlebar height is fixed at around 82cm. This will mean that the scooter is a nice height for kids for kids aged around 6 to 10 years. The handlebar height isn't adjustable which may be seen as a downside for some. However a height adjustable handlebar adds weight to the scooter. One of the reasons the Razor S Sports is lightweight is because it doesn't have a height adjustable handlebar. Also some height adjusting mechanisms are prone to rattling.
Assembly - minimal assembly is required.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you do stunts on the Razor S Sports?
No. The scooter is not strong enough to withstand the impact of jumps and tricks. One reason is because it has a folding mechanism. Stunt scooters will never have a folding mechansim as this is a weak point which might break when doing tricks.
Is this Scooter Suitable For An Adult?
Not really. The stunt scooter's handlebar doesn't really adjust high enough for an adult, although the weight limit for a rider is 100kg.
So, it may be okay for adults around 160cm or less and under 100kg. However it is recommended for the 6 to 10 age group so adults would really be better looking for another scooter. Having said this, there would be nothing to stop an adult under 100kg from having a go on this scooter to try it out.

Is this Scooter Suitable for a 4 or 5 Year Old?
The scooter is aimed at kids aged 6 years and older. If they were as tall as the average 6 year old and they were confident on a 2 wheel scooter, it may be an option but it would vary from child to child.
Is this Scooter Suitable for an 11 or 12 Year Old?
The maximum handlebar height is around 82.5cm and ideally you want the handlebar height to come around waist height on a kick scooter. So it will probably be okay for most 11 or 12 year olds. However as it doesn't have a lot of growing room for them, so you might be better looking at other options as well. Check out this guide on scooters for 11 and 12 year olds.
Does This Scooter Turn 360 degrees?
Yes, it does
Are The Wheels Rubber Or Plastic?
The wheels are made out of urethane which is a common material for manufacturers to make scooter wheels out of. Urethane is a great material for scooter wheels because it's soft enough to give a smooth ride over bumps and cracks in the pavment but it also offers toughness and durability.
Does The Scooter Stand Upright Without Support
No, there is no kickstand so it doesn't stand upright without any support.
What Alternatives Are There to The Razor S Sports?
Razor is a mid range price scooter. There are cheaper scooters but they will most likely not be as well constructed as the Razor. The Razor is solid, durable and very portable which are great features in it's price range.
However there are alternative to consider. For example, there are more expensive scooters like the Micro Sprite. Micro Scooters are well known for their precision engineering, excellent quality and fact they are built to last but you will pay over twice the price for it.
If you can increase your budget just a little bit more, there is the JD Bug Street Scooter which is a great kick scooter (there is little to rival it in the price range). Plus you get a height adjustable handlebar, carry strap, it's still super lightweight (2.78kg) and foldable too.
Razor is the company that make the S sports scooter. It's always worth looking at the company that make the scooter to help decide if you want to buy their product.
