Have Razor covered everything when it comes to Scooters

Updated on October 8, 2012

Razor

Razor has got to be one of the most well known brands for scooters around today. The range of Razor scooters that are manufacture are huge, and they seem to have covered everything from the start of the kick scooter, to the now electric scooter. That's also not forgetting the stunt scooter, or the something different ripstik. Razor seems to be at the forefront of developing scooters and skateboards for that something little bit different for riders of today, and with a team of professional riders behind them they seem to achieve just that.

First there was

Razor started out with a kick range of scooters which is a standard everyday scooter. These are still popular today especially with younger riders as a starting scooter. The kick range has developed to include the now massively popular Razor Spark, which has a cartridge at that back that when pressed with the foot leaves a trail of spark behind the rider. Younger riders just love this model. Most of the kick range will come with folding handlebars, making carrying or storage a whole lot easier. With adjustable handlebars this range should last the rider a good few years until they are ready to progress to a stunt scooter. Razor use quality materials in their scooters so you also know you are getting a scooter that is going to last and is a worthwhile investment.

The Next Step

I love the stunt scooters made by Razor. When a rider progresses to a stunt scooter you want to make sure you have a scooter that is built to withstand all the jumps and tricks that is going to be performed on it. The most popular in this range is the Razor Ultra Pro scooter, which as it is a stunt scooter will not fold or not have adjustable handlebars, but can be purchased in two different handlebar heights. With Urethane wheels that are made to give fantastic grip with the ground and are going to last, and a double welded deck for extra strength that won't snap in the middle you know this is a quality scooter, made for awesome stunts.

Something Different

Now when we talk about a different kind of ride it's hard to image how the scooter could be developed into something new, but Razor have come up with a range of three wheels products that really do stand out from the rest. The Rip Rider, Powerwing and Ripstik are all caster driven products that almost go on their own. The trick with these products is in the movement of the body, with a swaying action backwards and forwards to keep the scooter going without the need for pushing. All three products are slightly different in that the Ripstik is skateboard looking, the Powerwing more along the lines of a scooter and the Razor Rip Rider 360 a seated drive. All three products are hugely popular the decision here is just which one to go for.

Then there was Electric

Personally I am not a massive fan of the electric scooter, to me it seems to take all the fun out of riding, as well as the fitness factor. That said these are popular and maybe if I had all the other products I wanted I might go for an Electric scooter. They do just what they say they do, powered by an electric motor they cruise along with no need for pushing. The Razor Electric Scooter does have folding handlebars so can easily be put in the boot of the car, and they are also quite when in operation, a big bonus I think. This might be a great alternative for getting to work instead of the car!
