Razor E100 Electric Scooter Review 2018
Cruise around the neighborhood in style with the Razor E100 electric scooter. Boasting a chain-driven, high-torque motor, and a handy twist-grip throttle, the E100 is the perfect device for pre-teens and teens wanting to zip over to a friend’s house or head to the park. Unlike Razor’s E300S and E500S scooters–whose motors start from a standing position–the E100 requires a small manual kickoff to 3 miles per hour before starting (the rider presses a trigger to engage the motor). Once the rider is on the move, however, the electric motor ramps up to 10 miles per hour–fast enough to have fun, but not fast enough to be a menace on the street or sidewalk. And thanks to the long-life rechargeable battery, which takes about eight hours to fully charge, riders can cruise for up to 40 minutes at a stretch.

The battery lasts a good hour of uphill/downhill riding, large pneumatic tire up front makes quick work of bumps and rocks. The wide standing surface allows for his feet to be together, side-by-side, if he wants.Razor E100 Electric Scooter is sturdy and solid.The handlebars and shaft can be separated from the body for transport. It’s quick enough for fun, but not so fast as to be dangerous.It ships in two pieces: Handlbars/shaft assembly and the main body. Attaching the two pieces is all the assembling that’s necessary.
The brake is insufficient for the Razor E100 Electric Scooter. It will eventually stop the scooter, but don’t let your kid(s) rely on it. Teach them to steer out of situations and release the throttle. It will not stop my 9-year-old (65 lbs) son when he’s rolling down our slightly sloped driveway. Of course, the effectiveness of the brake is directly proportional to the strength of the rider’s grip, but the gripping power of kids in this age group is probably less than what this scooter-brake combo needs.The rear wheel is like one on a regular Razor scooter – solid and slick. This works well on most dry surfaces, but be careful because it can and will slide in more situations than a grooved, rubber tire would.

My son still tells me that this scooter is the best present he has ever received! If you have the money to get the 200 or 300, I would recommend doing so as long as you’re comfortable with the increased speed/power.
