SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Razor A5 Air

Razor A5 Air

Over the years we have discovered that there are two schools of thought about scooters, they are either a fun kid’s toy or they are a practical system of getting around for all ages. The Razor A5 falls more in the second category, though it is not without a healthy dose of fun. The big difference between this scooter and the ones lots of kids grow up playing with is the pneumatic tires that are able to absorb shocks and make riding on uneven surfaces easier. Everything is designed to soften the riding experience. The handlebars shake less and the rubber grips are more cushioned. As for the suggested age, the A5 is designed for a broader range than many of our testers were used to. With a frame that supports weights well north of 200 pounds and a longer riding deck for larger feet, many parents told us that they would be using the A5 as much as their kids. The kids disagreed which will either end in arguments or the purchasing of two A5’s! The higher price clearly reflects the added level of quality and materials which might be a determining factor in how that situation gets settled.

HOW IT WORKS

 

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Report Period Testing Begins Submission Deadline Testing Ends Report Issued
SPRING ’23 February 15th March 10th April 24th May 10th
FALL ’23 June 1st June 23rd July 31st August 16th
HOLIDAY ’23 September 1st September 22nd October 30th November 15th

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
