The Razor Ultra Pro is back and it is ready for another era of big air stunts and hard riding. Let us take a closer look on what Razor considers THE ultra pro in stunt scooters. Will we agree with this leading brand?
In the world of stunt scooters, you simply cannot ignore Razor. This brand, founded in 2000, continuous to develop and remaster scootering in general. They even support the stunt scooter scene fully with their team of professional home riders. Thus Razor have made a name for themselves in the United States and worldwide.
The griptape will immediately grab your attention. It’s a very cool design which contains the Razor logo and all the names of all pro riders sponsored by Razor. How did we wish we were on that griptape. Instantly you can also see that we are dealing here with a set of wider handlebars, which are a huge plus for comfort. But the Ultra Pro loses points on comfort when it comes to the grips. The grips are made out of hard rubber, which in time and with daily use, will become very uncomfortable on your hand palms. So, we advise you to get some new better soft rubber grips.
When holding the Ultra Pro, you will notice the sturdiness of this scooter. That’s because this scooter uses a mix of materials such as aluminium and steel, which in turn provides a good balance in weight and durability. A superb example of the Razor being sturdy is the process of welding the downtube and fork to the deck. And we cannot ignore the fact that the flat sides & bottom of the deck are especially made for your grinding and technical trick needs. We are definitely in love with the bottom of the deck. It has 4 grind rails which makes the deck last longer and helps lock in when grinding.
What separates this stunt scooter from the rest, is the use of the compression designed and developed by Razor and their home pro rider Michael Pytel. However we have noticed that opinions differ, some might say the compression system comes loose to easily. Others will find its adjustability a plus. To us, this homebrew compression system was a huge advantage. We could adjust it fully to our own personal needs
If you are looking for a stunt scooter who isn’t that costly and will withstand some heavy beginner use, the Ulta Pro is your model. Especially for kids because of its sturdiness and right size. If you are looking for a more in depth model then you might consider another one.
