Razor has become synonymous with scooters in the US. A Razor scooter brings to mind a kid — and sometimes an adult — working a speedy, elegant balancing act while powering herself down the street with a skipping foot. That image is probably about to be as passe as the gas lamp, because electricity abhors a vacuum. The Electric scooter is the new king of the block, one of the top searched-for products on the Internet this year.
And what results come up? Razors, of course. Razor has developed an electric scooter model to suit almost everyone. From the toy Vespa-like Razor Pocket Mod, which rides like a motorbike, to Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter, which sails a young urban professional down the road as if on a bicycle, Razor has covered its electric scooter bases. There’s even a Pulse Safe Start Disney Princess Electric 3-Wheel Scooter (which we’re against! learn to push, you toddlers!). The sweet spot, for the kid most likely to want an electric scooter is the Razor E250 Electric Scooter, tailor-made for the tween-early teen set, with style and power. Though there are more Razor E100s on the road than E250s — the E100 has the better price point. There’s an E325 too, but that’s for the kid whose parents work too much and give him presents to make up for it. Or for the adult who misses childhood. Razor was founded in 2000.
