Razor E300 Electric Scooter Review
- Speeds up to 15mph and up to 40 minutes of continuous use on a single charge
- Super-sized deck & steel frame
- High torque, chain driven motor
- Twist-grip acceleration control and a hand operated the rear brake
- Extra wide 10″ pneumatic tyres
When you first unpack this machine the first thing that will strike you is the build quality. Made from stainless steel the E300 is a sturdy 25kg with most of this being the sizeable deck and beefy wheels, an average male can ride this comfortably.
The box contains the scooter itself, which needs a little assembly (just a couple of bolts), two batteries and the charger. The manual recommends an initial 18-hour charge and then an ‘overnight’ charge after that.
We found that this was about right, with a full charge giving an average of 40 minutes riding time. This is something to take into account, as other models do last longer and 40 minutes can seem a little short when you need to charge it for 8 hours before you can ride again.
On the road, the E300 handles very well and is extremely easy to ride with a twist throttle and strong handbrake. When given to a friend’s 14-year-old sister she was riding straight away and looked very comfortable as she weaved around our local park.
With a claimed top speed of 15mph the E300 achieves this very smoothly and feels very nippy around town and we actually clocked ours at around 19mph.
Our model handled inclines with ease and I never felt like our model struggled to lug my 80 kg around, and the manufacturers claim that it should be fine with anything up to 100kg.
The motor is very quiet, and gets bonus points for being environmentally friendly,
Overall we were very impressed and had great fun with the Razor E300 Electric Scooter.
Even though the battery life could last a bit longer supplying two batteries solved this problem for the most part. Ideal for anyone from about 12 years who is confident with the speed this is a fantastic machine for zooming around with friends or scooting to work in style!
This scooter is fast and not a toy. If you are looking for a scooter for your child look here.
