Question: Is there much difference between the a4 vs. a5? i only want it for my vacation (via airplane), is the a5 worth paying more?
Answer: We didn’t try the a4, but the larger wheels on the a5 made a positive difference from the smaller Razors my grandkids had before their long legs outgrew them. The ride is much smoother. The wheels negotiate bumps and cracks in surfaces on which smaller wheels tend to stick.

Question: Is this scooter geared more for adults and teens or is it good for a 6 year old!

Question: a nine year old boy? a nine year old girl? both coordinated, which scooter most appropriate?
Answer: My 5 year old rides the a5, the same one that I ride as well (6’2″ man). I feel like the bigger wheels make it more stable and easier to ride. So to answer the question, the a5 would be perfect for a nine year old. The a5 is a good all around kick scooter.
