Size and Weight
Both Fuzion CityGlide and Razor A5 are generally slim, compact, and lightweight. Thanks to their slim designs, Fuzion CityGlide and Razor A5 are nimble and easy to navigate. In addition, they are also foldable, so they are very easy to bring along, whether you are going to the school, commuting, or playing in the park. See also: Razor A vs A2.
Nevertheless, Fuzion CityGlide is slightly bigger and heavier than Razor A5. It measures 35 inches tall, 33.6 inches long, and 4.5 inches wide. The long deck provides enough space for your feet. The height is adjustable from 29 inches to 36 inches, so you can fit it to suit your physicality. The weight is approximately 9.9 lbs.
On the other hand, Razor A5 is more compact and more lightweight. It measures 38.58 inches tall, 21.06 inches long, and 4.52 inches wide. The short deck means that you can’t really put both of your feet at once, at least not in a comfortable way. Nevertheless, the height is also adjustable. In fact, Razor A5 can be adjusted to higher heights than Fuzion CityGlide, so it is great for tall people. The weight of the scooter is 8.37 lbs.
Both scooters here are good-looking in their own ways. Fuzion CityGlide has a more colorful body, as the handlebar, T-tube, deck, and wheels are all colored. It is available in two color choices, which are green and yellow/silver. It has a folding mechanism that is very smooth and easy to use. In fact, children can fold and unfold the scooter with ease, so it is very practical.
Razor A5, on the other hand, comes with three color choices. There are red, pink, and blue options available. They all look nice and stylish. However, unlike Fuzion CityGlide, Razor A5 only colors the grips and wheels. Most of the frame and deck has a metallic color. As a result, the scooter looks modern and elegant.
Razor A5 also has a folding mechanism. However, unlike Fuzion CityGlide’s folding mechanism, Razor A5 is somewhat more difficult to fold and unfold. The mechanism is stiffer. A possible good thing from this is that the scooter will not accidentally unfold when in storage. The downside is that you need more effort to unfold it, and children will have troubles in unfolding it.
Both Fuzion CityGlide vs Razor A5 have excellent build quality. They are both highly sturdy and durable. Both models have lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum frames and decks. They can certainly hold heavy adults and withstand heavy-duty uses.
The maximum user weight is similar. Both Fuzion CityGlide and Razor A5 are suitable for users of up to 220 pounds. With such high weight limit, these scooters can easily hold most teenagers and adults.
However, in the actual use, Fuzion CityGlide feels more rugged and durable. The wheels are sturdy and move very smoothly, without any noticeable lateral movement. The handlebar is also solid. On the other hand, Razor A5 feels somewhat loose. The wheels aren’t as precise as Fuzion CityGlide, even though they are not bad at all. Because of this, Fuzion CityGlide has a slightly better score than Razor A5 in terms of build quality.
Fuzion CityGlide and Razor A5 have similar features, such as the adjustable handlebar, folding mechanism, and large rear fender brake. We have mentioned above that the maximum height adjustment of Fuzion CityGlide is lower than Razor A5, but Fuzion CityGlide is much easier to fold and unfold than Razor A5. The rear brakes are pretty much similar; they both are precise and easy to use.
Fuzion CityGlide does not have any kickstand. So, you need to put it carefully to avoid dropping and damaging the finish. This is a little inconvenient, but not a big deal.
Fuzion CityGlide comes with larger wheels. It features a pair of 210mm Hi-Speed Oversized Wheels, which are fitted with ultra-low-resistance cast polyurethane tires. These are high-quality wheels and tires that have great performance and excellent durability. In addition, it features ABEC-7 bearings that can give some amazing performance.
Razor A5 comes with a kickstand, which is very handy when you need to leave the scooter just for a little while without folding it. You don’t need to drop it to the ground, so there is less chance that the finish may get damaged.
Razor A5 also features large wheels, but the wheels are slightly smaller than Fuzion CityGlide. Razor A5 features 200mm polyurethane wheels that are tough and durable enough to go through rough and bumpy roads. They are fitted with ABEC-5 bearings, which are of good quality.
There is a noticeable difference in the performance of Fuzion CityGlide vs Razor A5. In general, Fuzion CityGlide moves more smoothly. Thanks to the smooth rolling of the wheels, it can also accelerate more quickly. Overall, the speed is very good, and the ride is very enjoyable.
Razor A5 is not bad at all. But the bearings aren’t as good as Fuzion CityGlide’s bearings. Not to mention the slightly smaller wheels. The performance is not as smooth, and the acceleration is somewhat slower than Fuzion CityGlide. There is slightly more vibration on the deck when the scooter is moving, but not significant enough to cause a real discomfort.
