I am a grandmother with two grandchildren. I wanted to get them something special for Thanksgiving. So, I asked my daughter what her children were interested in these days.
She told me that my grandkids have been pestering her about buying them electric scooters for their ride to school, so I knew what I had to get them.
Initially, it was quite tough for me to find an electric scooter with all the necessary safety features. But after spending a day researching, I came across the Blue Razor electric scooters.
All the reviews indicated it was a great product, so I ordered it, and it arrived on my doorstep a few days later.
We unpacked the scooter and started assembling it. Assembly took barely half an hour, and then the scooter was plugged into the charger so my grandkids could enjoy a ride on it right after I gave it to them.
After some time, it was ready to ride, and I invited my grandkids over after school to give it to them. We took it to the nearby field, and they had a great time learning how to use it.
In this review, I’ll detail the features and advantages of Razor’s blue electric scooter line so that you can buy the perfect model for your own kids or grandkids.
- Easy to assemble
- Long-lasting battery
- Very strong
- It does not make a lot of noise
- Kick-start design
- Pneumatic front tire
- The battery takes a lot of time to charge and is heavy for a kid. It’s a big downside as a kid of 10 will not be able to lift it.
The first variant of the Blue Razor electric scooter I want to talk about is the Razor E100. When it comes to the deck, the Razor Power E100 has a simple deck with a kick-start motor and features 220 V lead-acid rechargeable batteries.
The kick-start is very easy to use, and children will appreciate it. The foot deck is 8 inches wide which means it’s a great fit for children up to 120 lb. Children won’t have any issues getting on and cruising.
The rider just needs to propel the scooter forward with a kick, and once they reach 3 mph, the motor will activate. This is a key safety feature, as kids will not fall off the scooter if it takes off suddenly. A durable 24-hour battery powers the motor of the Blue Razor E100.
The time required to charge it completely is 12 hours. When it comes to the wheels, the front tire is large and made from polyurethane, making it water-resistant.
The handlebars are adjustable and provide you with good rubber slip-resistant grips. They even come with bumpers at each end, ensuring your child’s safety. The throttle is present on the right-hand side. In case of a break, the mechanism is the same as that for bicycles.
Pros: Easy to ride, wide deck, long-running battery, durability is good, value-for-money.
Cons: The battery takes a long time to charge, ideal weight capacity isn’t impressive.
This electric scooter is similar to the E100 model, but it has upgraded features. On this electric scooter, the weight capacity is 220 lb which is great.
The electric scooter is easy to assemble, and it has a 9″ pneumatic tire. The deck is 8 inches wide, and the charging point is under the deck.
The battery takes almost 8 hours to charge fully. This model is quite popular among users because of its mileage. It has a top speed of 15 mph.
Riders get a smooth grip at the handlebar, the throttle is twistable, and the brake is hand-adjustable. It’s very easy to carry everywhere and only weighs 52 lb.
It comes with twist-grip acceleration control. Everyone can use it, and you can make the ride safer by using helmets and elbow pads.
The only negative thing about this model is that the mechanism uses chain-based movement. Sometimes, the chain falls below, and it’s quite annoying to fix it again and again. It produces unpleasant sounds too.
Pros: Ideal weight capacity is very good, safe for kids, value-for-money, good mileage, kid-friendly design.
Cons: The chain which is attached to the wheel falls below the scooter very frequently.
The Razor Trikke E2 electric scooter comes with three wheels, one at the front and two at the back. All three wheels are polyurethane, and the front wheel is almost 6 inches in diameter.
The scooter has two 12 V batteries, which take nearly 10 – 12 hours to charge fully. The scooter doesn’t come with any deck, which is a poor safety decision.
The ideal weight capacity for this scooter is 220 lb; the more weight placed on the scooter, the lower the speed. It has good grip acceleration, and the mechanism is simple enough for kids.
The motor also comes with on/off switches near the charging jack. Very little maintenance is required, which makes this a value-for-money buy.
The handlebars are upside down, and the throttle is always on the right, and it should be pulled back toward you, not pushed forward. Overall, kids will love this model.
Pros: The ideal weight capacity is impressive. 3 wheels are present for stability. The structure is kid-friendly.
Cons: The motor is a bit noisy; a proper deck is absent, which makes the scooter less safe.
Blue Razor electric scooters come with a high–powered motor with a 250-watt capacity which generates high torque and reduces extra energy consumption.
The battery is either made of lead-acid, lithium-ion, or nickel metal. The electric scooter takes around 8 – 10 hours to charge fully.
The battery is either 24 V or two sets of 12 V batteries. The lithium-ion battery charges easily. All the batteries provide you with good output, but the price varies depending on the type you choose.
Razor is known for speed. It offers different models that vary in price based on their top speeds. Looking at the cheapest option, you’ll get roughly 9 miles of range on a single charge and a top speed of 12 mph.
These electric scooters are supposed to be used by kids/children, and their weight must be considered. The weight capacity for most Razor scooters ranges from 120 – 220 lb.
Kids under the age of 12 can ride these scooters without issue. These Razor scooters are not meant for adults because the speed decreases when add more weight.
The wheel size doesn’t differ much in each model. The wheels are urethane pneumatic tires. Some models have two wheels at the back and one wheel at the front.
The models with a set of two wheels at the back have a diameter of less than 6-inches on each wheel. The rest of the models have wheels with a 6-inch diameter.
The Blue Razor electric scooter has built a prominent name in this industry. One of the greatest things about these electric scooters is that they are environmentally friendly.
The structural design is suitable for kids. They are easily portable and durable. The company provides you with every kind of design and structure according to your budget.
Of course, there will be drawbacks to every product, but newer models are coming out frequently with improvements.
