Long ago I have read rave reviews on the Xootr Adult skate scooters... The ridiculous price tag however has stopped me from getting them. Many reviews said how fast they were and they glide effortlessly. So I decided to do some research again, many more models of the Xootr have emerged and also some alternatives...
The exclusive distributor for Xootr scooters is apparently Life Cycles, and yes the price is still sky high. I wanted the lightest... That would mean this model: Roma
Wanted to go down for a test ride, than while you-tubing I found that Razor had a similar model too! The Razor A5 Lux:
) including shipping, so I thought... Why not!
And than AFTER I placed my order I came across this: Fuzion City glide
It was cheaper and from a review better to ride (worse bearings but wider handlebar)... But I find it in Singapore online, and it seems to be out of production...
And than probably the mother of kick scooters... The Go-Ped KickPed:
Rugged tires that look very forgiving and yes, you get bragging rights to owning a "Lefty" fork. Again pricey, but will definitely pick this against the Xootr. I believe they are more well known for their powered scooters... And having said that... I saw disc brakes... Holy... And pardon me but can you guess the name of their electric scooter? The "I-Ped"
So a quick week later and it's delivered, my Razor A5 Lux:
Only 3.67kg, it's light! Shall test ride later. Confident it will do better than the A-Bike!
Update 12/05/2013: The price of this scooter keeps going down, it might be getting old but it's definitely the most valued for money!
