The City Glide compares very favorably w/ two other 200mm wheel scooters we have - Pulse Road Rager & Razor A5. The City Glide and Road Rager both cost around $50; the Razor A5 cost approx $75. There are pros and cons to each, but the City Glide is my overall favorite.
I have been riding it about 2 mi. daily on recently paved asphalt roads for about 3 months now (older, rougher asphalt is just too rough to ride on) and so far no problems to report. The ride is smooth, and the riding position is comfortable. It feels more stable than the others mainly because the handle grips are spaced farther apart than the others. (The Razor's handlebar is the worst.) The platform is a bit on the narrow side at 4", but it is wide enough once you become proficient at switching feet while riding. The ride is smooth, but it does make a little more rattling noise than the others. It is also larger and heavier then the others, so if you want something portable to take onto the bus or train, the smaller & lighter Razor A5 and Pulse Road Rager might be the better choice.
So to summarize, the positive points of the City Glide are:
1. 14" wide handlebar gives stable steering feel (compared to 12" for the Razor A5 and 13" for the Pulse Road Rager)
2. approx 29" wheelbase (compared to 26" for the Razor A5 and Pulse Road Rager) which gives it a smoother, more stable ride.
3. handle bar post can be raised high, w/ 3 height settings (Razor A5 has only 1, Road Rager has 2)
4. fender brake is not as good as well designed as the Razor's but it is removable/replaceable should it ever break (Road Rager's brake is non-serviceable)
5. affordable price (around $50) - good value for the money

The negative points of the City Glide are:
1. size/weight - not as portable. Weighs just under 10 lbs (Razor A5 and Pulse Road Rager are under 8.5 lbs)
2. front folding mechanism has an adjustment screw which allows you to tighten up the slack and reduce the rattle. But the tighter you adjust it, the more difficult it becomes to fold the scooter.
3. platform is only 4" wide (the others are 1/2" wider)

I'm an adult, and I just purchased this scooter a couple days after Christmas at Walmart. I'd never owned a scooter, so I knew nothing about them, but I wanted something to assist me with the long blocks of San Francisco.

My first kick off on this scooter was exhilarating. I was impressed with its speed capacity (so long as you're on level ground), and I fell in love with it in the beginning. What began as a 23 min walk became a 10 - 12 min nice ride -- or glide--
and it was fun!

A couple things concerned me though. Firstly, this is a new product for Fuzion, and although Fuzion has a website, they're slow to respond to your inquires and I've never been able to reach them by their posted phone number. Frankly, it doesn't appear that they even answer their phone.

The second concern was the kind of speed bearings used on this scooter. Whereas the A5 Lux and other scooters usually post this info., this information was inaccessible on the box, the website, and (the manual). I contacted their website to obtain this info., and I've not gotten any response as to whether the scooter uses ABEC, ABEC 5 bearings. In any event, although it gives a smooth ride, the scooter slows considerable on the mildest incline, leading me with two conclusions: (A) it must use very low speed bearings or inferior ones (which I've been unable to confirm since no one from the website has gotten back to me regarding this: (B) I've decided to upgrade the bearings because I think the scooter is worth the investment...

One other thing to consider... The instructions are accurate about riding this scooter during -- and right after the rain--... or rather in wet conditions. As with most scooters, this scooter is also slippery under wet conditions and slipped right out from under me when I glided over a wet spot I hadn't detected in bright daylight, and I almost broke my hip. You might say I've learned the hard way to wear protective gear, i.e., knee pads, elbow pads, and a helmet. (Personally I hate wearing helmets, but my fall was a wake up call since my head came two inches from hitting a brick)... And this time, I was blessed.

It's quite impressive for a first experience.

AS COMPARED TO XOOTER

I also tested the high esteemed xooter, which in my experience, did not stand up to the city glide in terms of performance and speed. The xooter is clearly structurally sturdier than the City Glide (depending which model xooter you purchase). But I felt I had to push harder on the xooter to work up the same amount of speed I get from the City Glide scooter, and I surely wasn't impressed enough to shove out 259.00 for their high end concept.

I will update this review with more experience.

Whether silver or black, beware of this product. The catch mechanism that locks it in the riding position failed about a month after we purchased the black version of it. We were past our "return window" so we're stuck with a piece of junk that won't work. Just putting this review here to hopefully save someone else the trouble. Stick with Razor scooters or some other brand that has already proven they can make stuff that holds up under normal use.

I have purchased this scooter and a lot of people wants to know where I bought this scooter. My son rides it and the kids gets blown away, wanting a scooter like this. The only bad thing about this scooter is: it gets stuck sometimes when it comes to unfolding it, but a little WD40 helps take care of it. Other than that, its good!

Our Granddaughter's came out of the box and would not lock open. Perhaps spring (which we infer has to be in the folding/unfolding/shock-absorbing mechanism) was missing? One could open with no resistance, fold it with no resistance, but nothing held it in either position. Manual did not clear up this possible ambiguity--e.g. if perhaps the adjusting screw one turns with the included wrench has anything to do with this. If these may fall out in shipment, for instance, how that shows up as a symptom could be noted. Or troubleshooting could be put on the website. OTHER REVIEWS give it a good rating. Fuzion CityGlide 2-Wheel Cruising Scooter-Silver

1st: SKATEBOARD BEARINGS DO NOT FIT ON THIS SCOOTER!

Plus:
I use this scooter as a 180 lb. adult, I got it to keep in the car when I have to park far away from my workplace. It makes commuting a lot faster and is much less of a hazel than a folding bike. The scooter is very smooth and fast, I like to have my feet (size 11) slightly tilted, as on a snowboard and than they fit very well on the deck. I am 6' 2" and the handle bar still is high enough for me. I was surprised how easy it is to handle, I believe this is in part due to the deck being quite a bit lower than the wheel axle which makes it more stable. The low center of gravity also allows to do carving-style rides - just like on a snowboard- but I have to be careful that my toes or heels don't touch the ground.

Negatives:
The folding mechanism is sometimes a bit hard to get free and it has to be tightened frequently, but I am also well past the suggested weight limit. It is not made very well, some of the screws are crooked and the yellow wheels look a bit toy-like. I got rid off all the stickers, they were not attached well and again did not look very mature. Some reviews here mention the ABEC5 bearings and suggest to replace them with better skateboard bearings- this does not work, the scooter has 27mm bearings which are larger than on a skateboard, but they work very well. As others mention the folding handle bar is a bit wobbly. I never fold the handles anyway since it does not really save space- I will soon fix it with 4 screws. The brake on the rear works OK - it would be much better with a front hand brake, though.

I am very happy with this one - I wish they would make an adult version with a fixed handle bar, another color scheme and a better folding mechanism- a simple hinge with a fastener would be a much better solution.

This scooter goes way way faster with so much less effort. The handles dont shimmy when you go fast or over older asphalt. And the best part is when you hit a crack you dont fly off. This scooter goes over cracks and bumps a million times better than a Razor. (The razors i have tried). I was riding my little brothers, but now i need to buy my own because i LOVE it. It reminds me of the old real scooters of the 80's with the pump up wheels. LOVE IT. Buy one, they are AWESOME! Every kid in the neighborhood is so jealous of my brother, they have all ridden it. Also it is taller than a razor. I am 5 foot 6 and its a tiny bit low but nothing like a razor where you are hunched over and it kills your back. RAD SCOOTER! Be the envy of the neighborhood with one of these. I cant wait to get mine!

We bought our son a fuzion scooter and he loves it! Our niece liked it so much that we searched everywhere and also purchased her one! They are light and easy to use; they are fast and the platform is larger then other scooters for balance. Great purchase!
