Razor E300 Electric Scooter Review 2018
Razor E300 Electric scooter is certainly more advanced than the E100. It is designed for ages 12 years and older as it has variable-speed for the kids to opt for their riding needs. Thanks to the high-performance, ultra-quiet chain-drive motor, this electric scooter can reach up to 15 miles per hour, which is fast enough for an electric toy. Similar to E100 this scooter also has a pneumatic tire, but this model has a pair of it with extra-wide 10-inch size which allows a smooth ride while you go around the neighborhood.
Razor E300 also has a twist-grip throttle and is powered by a rechargeable battery that you can use for up to 45 minutes when it is fully charged. You need about eight hours to have the battery fully charged. Some assembly is required with the whole parts including the battery, but as the charger and tools are included in your purchase, you should not worry about it. It will only take about 10 minutes or more to put together the whole part.
The brake adjustment of this scooter actually works just fine, however, the chain was super tight. You can ask someone who knows a lot about chain tension to loosen it a bit for a better performance. According to some source I read this can even add the speed consistently to 17mph and still running strong after 35 minutes ride. You are suggested to consider loosening the chain tension if your scooter only ran about 10 minutes per charge with 13 mph max speed. You should note that the manufacturer stated that it should go 15 mph, so if you only reach 13 mph max, there must be something wrong with it. However, it is up to you if you simply want to call the customer service and ask for replacement or just try your luck with a mechanic to have the chain loosen a bit. I heard that even the replacement item would come with a super tight chain, so you might want to consider and improvise.
The Razor E300 is sturdily built that even someone with the weight of 210 lbs can ride with it without flinching the structure. However, as it is actually not intended for any hills and adult heavy riders, you should not try it on such roads (except perhaps some small hills). Maximum rider weight for this scooter is actually 220 lbs but with the max weight on the ride, the battery may last less than 35 minutes and the motor may get moderately hot to the touch.
Razor E300 will make an ultimate ride for you to get around the neighborhood with its smooth and high performance experience. It has a comfortable super-size deck and frame, twist-grip acceleration control, plus and extra-wide 10-inch pneumatic tires for both front and rear, and hand operated rear brake. This scooter really offers you the smoothest and coolest ride that you can cruise on it around town with lots of fun.
The environmentally-friendly quiet chain motor of this unit allows a comfortable and smooth ride for a short 40 minutes trip either to go to work, or school, or just to get around town. It has quiet engine and large deck frame that a young teen can continually ride it for a few good years to come. The folding handlebar mechanism makes this vehicle easy to transport around when not riding that you can store them easily in a small space. The handlebar works via a screw that unlocks the bar, this might somewhat inconvenient but really works well actually.
Again, you might want to think it over if you want this vehicle as your ride to work because the life of the battery is only 45 minutes on full charge. Of course that is except if you’re not living far away from work. However, it is actually designed for shorter journeys or a cruise around the neighborhood, so it shall work perfectly the way it was designed to be.
As there are local, state, and federal regulations regarding the riding and use of this electric scooter, it is recommended to ride with a helmet, elbow pads, as well as knee pads. Just because it is set to be toys, it doesn’t mean that this vehicle doesn’t require safety when using it. It has similar risk with riding conventional vehicles such as motorbikes. So especially for the young ones, or those who are going to take a ride with this scooter for the first time, for your own safety, please never neglect the regulations, and never ride without safety equipments. The speed of this scooter should pretty much explain why they are needed.
Overall, this is a fantastic vehicle for an experience of scooting around town. So if you are looking for an ultimate electric scooter which provides plenty of fun wising around the neighborhood, then Razor E300 shall make a great choice for you.
