I ended the fourth and final week of the HeadBlade shave project with the MOTO which is the newest razor introduced in 2016. The MOTO takes all aspects of the ATX and upgrades to the next level. The ATX was easy to use right out of the box HeadBlade made that a necessary mandate that helped eliminate any learning curve when switching from a regular cartridge razor to a HeadBlade razor. The MOTO is even easier to use with little time needed critiquing the correct angle for a smooth shave. I contribute this to one of the biggest changes made with the MOTO.
The ATX and Sport razors both have wheels to help the razor glide across the surface of your skin. The Sport is wide in the front and starts to narrow towards the back. The wheels that are located on the back are small in comparison to the wheels on the ATX. The wheels on the ATX are located on the front end of the razor and are much larger. The MOTO keeps the same cartridge razor placement as the ATX but decided to get rid of the wheels replacing them with a rollerball that’s on the front of the razor in the same location as the wheels once resided. The rollerball is multi directional compared to the wheels that were linear. The multi directional ball gives the MOTO freedom of direction making the hard to shave areas easier to get to. The hardest area for me to shave is behind my ears. The angle needed to accomplish this is hard to get without getting cuts and nicks. The MOTO as well as the ATX makes this angle easy to accomplish.
The second hardest area for me to shave is the back of my head. I shave by feel or by looking in a mirror. The hardest part about shaving the back of your head is the real estate you have to cover. There is a lot to shave, the strokes are pretty much all linear but it’s more wide open space. The razor cartridge located on the back of the MOTO rotates to the right and left giving it more capabilities for contouring around all of the bumps and dips on the back of your head. I absolutely love the MOTO and how it performs during shaving. HeadBlade has once again taken your shave to the next level.
This marks the end of the HeadBlade shave project. These last four weeks have been great and a valuable learning experience. All four razors were fantastic and I know that each razor is loved by many alike. HeadBlade has been and always will be at the front of the line when it comes to head shaving and #Livingthebaldlifestyle. So come on and just #Shaveyourhead. Love your product and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day!
The third week of the HeadBlade shave project I decided to use the ATX which is the third razor introduced in 2012 designed specifically for head shaving. The ATX was in development for over three years with four official mandates to achieve consisting of using new multi-blade technology. To eliminate any new learning curve there might be for a new user of the ATX. To be effective and versatile for the head, face, body and legs. The ATX completed these mandates introducing the ATX as an all terrain razor that elevates your shave to the next level.
I can honestly say that the first time I used the ATX it was very easy to use with minimal critiquing required. On the front end lies two sets of wheels on each side of the razor. This is much different in comparison to the Sport were the razor is located on the front. These wheels help the razor glide across your Dome in long smooth strokes. On the bottom of the back end is where the razor is located. On the Sport the wheels are located on the back end and smaller compared to the ATX. The ATX comes with a standard 4 blade cartridge razor and takes the HB4 replacement blades. The ATX is not as streamlined as the Sport is. The larger set of wheels on the front and the 4 blade cartridge razor on the back stationed to a larger axle makes the ATX razor from HeadBlade a solid and stable shave every time. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day.
The second week of the HeadBlade shave project I decided to review the HeadBlade Sport. This is the second razor by HeadBlade designed specifically for head shaving. The Sport was introduced in 2006 which is not that long after the Classic made its first debut changing the head shaving game forever. I really enjoyed shaving with the Classic so I was even more excited about my week with the Sport. I had high hopes and expectations for this weekly shave and I was definitely impressed at the end of the week. Before I talk about how the razor performs with shaving lets take a look at how the design of this razor changed from the Classic. It’s pretty easy to see some of the changes when you put the two razors side by side. The body of the Sport compared to the classic is wider in the front and tapers down the back. The wider front end means improved axle for stability and support. The cartridge razor is still located on the front end of the razor just like it is on the Classic. The Sport comes with a three blade cartridge compared to the two blade cartridge razor on the Classic. The HB3 and HB4 razors are both compatible with the Sport razor. The top of the razor is rubberized with lots of room for your first three fingers to rest comfortably on top. The hook that’s located on the top of the razor still fits snug around your middle finger but is more slanted and streamlined.
The Sport razor looks more like a high end razor compared to the Classic. I still love the Classic razor and will always use it. HeadBlade definitely got it right the first time around with the introduction of the Classic but there is always room to grow and HeadBlade has done that with the Sport. The biggest difference between the two razors is the wheels located on the back of the Sport. The wheels help the razor glide across your Dome in long strokes with minimal pressure needed for a smooth and comfortable shave. There was hardly any learning curve with the Sport shaving with the grain and minimal critiquing when shaving against the grain. The Sport like the Classic fits firmly into the fingers and palm of your hand. The Sport is more streamline and aerodynamic compared to the Classic creating a smoother shave from the beginning. The hardest area for shaving on my head is around the ears. I have to be very careful not to cuts myself, even with years of experience under my belt I still manage to get small cuts or nicks in that area. The Sport made shaving this area fast and smooth without any irritation. My week with the Sport was a good experience and the differences in design compared to the Classic definitely impact how the Sport razor functions during shaving. If you haven’t had a chance to try the HeadBlade Sport then I suggest you do so right away. The experience will definitely change the way you decide how to shave your head, so come on and just #Shaveyourhead. Love your products and you will definitely love the results. Thank you and have a #Baldtastic day.
