In case you saw our recent article about the Razor E300, we thought you’ll also be interested in finding out if Razor scooters are for adults. This article will discuss that in more detail, giving you some information about the brand, and the products it offers. You will also find out which of its products are made for adults.
Manufactured by RazorUSA, based in Cerritos, California, Razor scooters have been popular since the early 2000s. Initially developed by Micro Mobility Systems, about 5 million Razor scooters were sold in the first months after the scooter was first launched in 2000. The popularity of these scooters was increased due to professional riders, and in 2001 this was named the toy of the year.
As years passed by, the company developed its models and in 2003 the first electric scooter appeared. There have been many models, but the first of them is known today as the Old A model.
Razor uses the same general design when creating its scooters. First of all, the frame is made of airplane-grade aluminum, and the wheels are 98mm in diameter and they’re made of polyurethane. The scooters come with a flex brake that is made of durable metal and is actioned by being pushed against the back wheel.
More recent models use a system that allows the handlebar and headtube to fold, so this makes the scooters quieter and it also lets you carry them easier.
The electric scooters that Razor produces are operated using a twisting throttle, similarly to how motorcycles are operated. The newest models, including the E300, reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, and they are becoming popular because they offer the possibility to travel longer distances than one would normally travel with a kick scooter.
Because Razor started as a company that produced kick scooters, it’s clear that it offers a wide variety of choices when it comes to this category. It split its products based on age segments, with the smallest kick scooters being designed for kids between 5 and 7. It also offers scooters for older kids (between 8 and 12), and kick scooters for teens and adults (13+).
Going on the company’s website you can see that there are 12 of these scooters that can be used by adults, and they are all designed for a special kind of rider. You have signature models, scooters that can be used on rough terrain, scooters that can be used for freestyle, or others that are made for a comfortable ride. You have it all.
Of course, some of them are made primarily for children, but they can be adapted to be used by adults. The signature model, however, designed and used by John Radtke is made to be ridden by professional adult or teenage freestylers that want to ride like him.
You also have the off-road variant to the John Radtke scooter, and it has been tested heavily and designed to perform well on all kinds of terrain. These scooters that can be used by adults also range in price, to cover all kinds of pockets, so you can find a high-end scooter for about $300, but you can also buy a cheaper one, the least expensive being only $80.
If you’re the kind of person that likes to commute without using the car all day, or if you just like going around the neighborhood in an environmentally-friendly manner, there are kick scooters made especially for you. The A5 Air Scooter is just for that – commuting – and it comes with features that make your commute a more comfortable one, on rough terrain included.
Made to be reliable, the A5 has a solid construction, pneumatic tires and an anti-rattle technology that makes it ideal for daily rides.
Razor also offers a model named A6 that is made especially for those taller people that are tired of hunching over their scooters. Coming with extra-large wheels and handlebars that can be dramatically adjusted in height, the A6 will allow tall people to enjoy kick scooters too.
Basic electric scooters
When it comes to electric scooters, Razor has the following categories: scooters made for kids aged 8-12, scooters for teens and adults (13+), and scooters that are for adults only (18+).
In the 13+ class, you can find 9 electric scooters, each made for a certain type of rider. Here is where the E300 and the E300s models can be found as well. Being one of the newest electric scooters from the company, the E300 is made for those that are a bit sportier. It is based on older versions, and everything about it is super-sized comparing to the old models, including the power that it offers.
Reaching speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, this scooter will give you a great feeling when riding it. The tires are wide enough to offer good stability and the frame is made of steel, so it’s highly durable. It comes with a 24V rechargeable battery that will last for up to 40 minutes of continuous use.
This ride is made to be both comfortable and safe, and that is why it has a brake that is hand-operated, like the acceleration. You also have the E300S, which is a slightly modified model. What’s different about it? It comes with a seat, so if you want to use your electric scooter for your daily commute and you want to have a comfortable ride, this is the scooter for you.
If you feel that the E300 is too bulky for you, then you’d be happy to find that Razor offers some sleeker electric scooters for adults, and the E Prime is one of the lightest. It’s much lighter, considering that it’s not entirely made of steel, and it can still get you to speeds of 15mph. Of course, it won’t hold as much weight, but if you need to carry it around, it’s much lighter.
The E Prime also has an Air variant, which is basically the more comfortable alternative. The E Prime Air model comes with larger, pneumatic wheels that are designed to make your ride a smooth one, no matter the terrain you’re going on. Being able to carry loads of up to 200 pounds, Razor says that this is the most sophisticated electric scooter in its category.
Finally, you have the big guns, or should we say, the big gun, because there is only one electric scooter that Razor exclusively sells for people aged 18 or older. The E-XR Electric Scooter is truly a scooter for adults both in terms of size and power. It’s the biggest of them all, being able to carry weights of 220 pounds.
It also has an engine capable of carrying that weight at speeds of up to 17 miles per hour. Razor designed this scooter for it to be the most used vehicle for commutes. The scooter is great for that purpose because it offers the comfort, control, and performance needed for every-day rides.
This model is made to comply with local laws, so you can ride it on public roads too. Furthermore, it has a range of 16 miles, or a battery life of 60 minutes, meaning that you can use it to go further away than you could with other models. The electric scooter also comes with LED lights for both the front and back, and this enhances visibility in traffic.
If you’re wondering if riding a scooter is good or bad for you, then you should know that riding a kick scooter certainly has its benefits. Although electric scooters are being used more than their smaller, powerless brothers, the kick scooters are still the ones that can keep you in good health.
Kick scooters let your body do the work and in that process, they help you develop your lower-body muscles. So if you have the chance, get a kick scooter to do some exercise. You might consider an electric one if you’re going to use it for commutes though.
