Razor Electric Scooters
Razor may already be a familiar brand to new electric scooter owners, because they made themselves a household name in the early 2000s as manufacturers of manual scooters, bikes, tricycles and skateboards, claiming more than one top spot in the Christmas gift charts during those years. More recently Razor has been taking on the adult electric vehicle market, and was behind the launch of the smash hit hoverboard in 2016, adapting their already popular line of kids electric scooter models to suit leisure users and commuters in the USA and Europe. Let’s take a closer look at their range.
More about Razor
Razor is a brand that’s always been down with the cool kids, and almost from the start the company was associated with big name skating and surfing brands, much happier down at the skate park with the grunge crowd than covering the last mile to the office. That culture has been toned down a little today, but the design of their models is still more rough and ready than it is luxury. For a start their models are towards the cheaper end of the market, and they are one of the most affordable of the big brands out there, while also being one of the lightest on average. This makes all of their models pretty easy to transport and fold up, as well as to carry around with you, in keeping with the ‘get up and go’ sporty image that the brand cultivates.
The lighter build also gives the Razor range excellent handling because it’s easy to manage twists and turns, while the sporty looking design with its low deck also gives it a lower centre of gravity for better stability. Speaking of the deck, you’ll also find it tends to be longer on this brand, which gives you a bit of extra space for added comfort. Another great thing about the Razor brand is that they specialise in scooters for children as well as adults, another nod to their kid-friendly heritage, so you can also find a ton of options that are a bit less powerful and a bit lighter, but still boast those great Razor features in a robust and affordable package.
Razor E Prime Air
Sitting bang in the middle of their range as Razor’s flagship model, roughly equivalent to the Pure Air or the Xiaomi M365, the E Prime Air definitely has a sportier look than most other scooters on the market. With exposed nuts and bolts, exposed wiring, rubber handles and metal plating on the deck it feels more like a BMX than rivals which look more space age, and whether that’s a good or a bad thing will depend on your style. As with the rest of the Razor range, the best thing about the Razor E Prime Air is its light weight, which at under 10kg is as much as 3kg lighter than the Xiaomi M365. This makes it a breeze to carry around with you and fold up if you want to take it on public transport, as well as to carry it to off-road areas and skate parks.
It’s important to note that the E Prime Air may not be the scooter for you if you’re looking for absolute luxury, because that sporty edge means it’s not got the best ride quality in its category and its range is only average at 16km at its top speed of 25km/h. However, it’s also one of the most affordable of the big brand scooters, which can get even better if you pick up a refurbished model from us at Moose! For sports riders and casual commuters, though, it’s get everything you need!
Razor Power Core E90 / E100
The Power Core E90 and Power Core E100 models are Razor Electric Scooter designed squarely for kids, and as a result it’s built with kid priorities in mind. Forget all the boring stuff that adults need to worry about, like taking it on the bus or charging your phone with it, all kids need to worry about is how long it lasts and whether it breaks. Thankfully, we’ve got good news on both counts. This is an extremely robust scooter that’s constructed from steel and plastic, making it exceptionally durable and hard wearing, while its 40 mins ride time means your kids will get a lot of use out of it before it needs to be recharged. Without needing to worry so much about aesthetics, the whole scooter is covered with safety features with excellent grip on the deck and handlebars, so it’s even nice and safe for kids to use.
While some modern electric scooters have come under fire for being complicated or having non standard controls, the Power Core E90 couldn’t be simpler, with a push button accelerator to move and a front and back brake to stop. All in all, it’s an ideal first scooter for active children. The Power Core E100 model is a step up from the E90 with a larger pneumatic front tyre that gives it a superior ride comfort, a wider sturdier deck, and a twist throttle accelerator.
