When it comes to scooters, Razor is surely at the forefront of the industry. In fact, if you remember the scooter craze from the early 2000s, it was actually Razor scooters who kicked this all off. Thus, I am pretty sure they know what they are doing.
There are a lot of products in the Razor range, all of them are incredibly distinct from one another. This made it terribly difficult to choose the top 10 Razor scooters for adults.
I am positive that if another person was creating this list, they would have come up with a drastically different one. However, I am also positive that no matter what scooters were included on the list, it would still be a good list and nobody would be disappointed with the inclusions as long as they’re Razor scooters.

Let’s start :
The Razor A5 Lux Kick scooter comes in four different color options, an adjustable handlebar, a sturdy aluminum frame, rear-braking system, foldable functionality, extra-large urethane wheels and weighs 9.4 pounds. It also gives you the option to go for standard packaging or frustration-free packaging for more convenience. As far as aesthetics are concerned, the design is highly functional and sleek. The anodized finish and bold colors along with the graphics make it ideal for those who like a classic yet subtle visual feel on their scooters.
With the extra-large urethane wheels and a highly durable deck, this scooter can support up to 220 pounds which is great. The large wheels also allow you to have a smooth and comfortable ride even if the pathway isn’t perfect. It only weighs about 9.4 pounds and it is foldable to boot, making it highly convenient for those who have long commutes. It’s very easy to fold and store in a backpack allowing you to easily carry it with you wherever you go.
The build quality is excellent, thanks to the high-quality aluminum frame. You also get adjustable handlebars with it which allows you to set it lower or higher for maximum comfort. As far as the deck is concerned, it measures about 13” x 4.5” and so you won’t be able to place both feet on it at the same time but you can put one foot on it and then rest the other foot’s toe behind. The grip tape on the deck is also high-quality and will last for a long time.
This scooter comes with a wide bamboo deck, 16” air-filled tires, 500W high torque motor, rear-wheel drive, twist grip handle throttle, cargo carrier, tubular steel frame, 12 miles range, run time of 40 minutes and supports up to 220 pounds of weight. The design is more based on functionality rather than aesthetics which is a good thing because comfort and stability trump good-looks especially when it comes to a scooter. The first thing you notice when looking at it is the wide bamboo-styled deck. It may not look good to everyone but it provides more than enough space and comfort.
The very large 16” pneumatic tube tires not only look great but also allow you to have very comfortable rides on both smooth and not-so-smooth roads and pathways. The scooter weighs about 65.3 pounds which is quite heavy but then again it’s pretty standard for an electric one. Its heaviness also makes it very stable when riding over small bumps and uneven surfaces. You also get a detachable cargo carrier with it which allows you to keep your grocery bags, bag packs and small luggage safely when traveling from one place to another.
Built with a sturdy tubular steel frame and a rear-wheel drive, you get an excellent riding experience. The rear-wheel-drive efficiently shifts the weight to the rear which improves traction and gives you better control when steering the scooter. The 500W motor also allows you to go up to 18 mph and travel 12 miles and up to 40 minutes of continuous use on a single full charge. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a speedometer though. It does come with a battery indicator which will let you know when the battery is low on power.
The Razor A6 Kick Scooter is a sleek machine that comes with two color options, extra-large 10” wheels, long deck, anodized aluminum frame, foldable functionality, rear braking, adjustable handlebars and weighs 10.93 pounds. The first thing you will notice when you glance at it is how sleek it looks. The design is elegant yet modern and is sure to turn heads when you ride it. Both color schemes are simple but highly effective and are perfect for those who prefer a more modern, simple and sleek look rather than one with very bold colors and graphics.
With the large 10” polyurethane wheels, you will get good stability when riding and sufficient comfort when traveling on uneven roads. The scooter is also quite lightweight at 10.93 pounds which is great as it comes with foldable functionality too. What makes this scooter unique is that it is specifically designed for tall people. The adjustable handlebars allow you to raise it to a maximum height of 42” and it comes with a long 13.4” deck too. This makes it perfect for tall individuals who have trouble riding other scooters.
It also comes with anti-rattle technology that minimizes rattling when you ride on uneven surfaces. The construction is solid with a sturdy anodized aluminum frame that is built to last. The one small issue it has is its braking system. While it is pretty much the same as most razor scooters, it takes some time to come to a full stop. So when you are riding it, you need to apply the brakes a few seconds before so that it stops in time.
This one comes with four color options, large urethane wheels, front suspension, wheelie bar, foldable functionality, adjustable handlebars, aircraft-grade aluminum frame, rear fender braking system and can support up to 143 pounds. This one is made for small adults, although 6 feet tall individuals can also ride it, the design itself is made with kids and average height adults in mind. It comes in four different color options including a clear one for those who don’t like bold colors.
The large urethane wheels make it an absolute joy to ride but what makes this scooter unique is that it is perfect for doing tricks on. With the spring-less shock-absorbing system and large wheels, you can perform a wide variety of tricks on it. It also weighs only 7.02 pounds which helps in maneuverability and tighter control. As it’s foldable, you can also easily carry it from one place to another without any hassles or discomfort.
As far as the overall riding experience is concerned, you get a stable and comfortable ride over both even and uneven surfaces, thanks to the front suspension. The body is also very durable and made with an aircraft-grade aluminum frame. You also get a retractable kickstand which is useful and convenient to have. With fender breaks on the back, it also provides you with a very good and responsive riding experience as you get better control when traveling at low and high speeds.
The Razor Power Core E90 electric scooter comes with two color options, power core technology, 85W high-torque motor, alloy steel construction, rechargeable 12V battery, rear-wheel drive, airless rear tire, retractable kickstand and can support up to 120 pounds. It comes in two bold color options; namely green and pink and both look exceptionally good on this scooter. The design is unique as it has a lot softer edges in its contours than other scooters which have the typical hard edges.
It comes with a spoked urethane wheel at the front and a rubber one at the rear. This does give a unique and comfortable riding experience. However, as the wheels aren’t particularly big, you may face a bumpy ride occasionally when riding over uneven surfaces. It can also only support up to a maximum weight of 120 pounds and so those who are heavier than the limit will have a bit of an uncomfortable experience riding it.
One of the unique aspects of this scooter is that it comes with a hand-operated front braking system which is pretty good and easy to use. It is important to note that you need to push it forward with a kick first (3mph) before starting the motor. With the 85W motor, you can ride at a maximum speed of 10mph and a single full charge can provide you with up to 80 minutes of continuous use. It also is somewhat noisy unlike most electric scooters which are silent but it’s more of a small inconvenience than anything else.
The Razor E100 scooter comes with 8 different color options, carbon steel construction, front braking system, 100W high torque motor, twist grip throttle, 40 minutes of continuous charge and can support up to 120 pounds. Aesthetically what sets this scooter apart is the wide variety of color options to choose from. It allows it to have broader appeal not to mention the design goes well with all color options. Visually the scooter looks good with soft contours and a small hump at the rear.
One of its best aspects is its hand throttling system which allows for a more intuitive riding experience. It also allows you to have better control of the speed and paired with the hand brake system gives you a far superior experience than using a scooter with a rear braking system. The kick-start motor is also quite helpful as you never have to worry about starting it accidentally. The front air tire also helps to give you a smooth ride overall.
When it comes to performance, the 100W motor allows you to attain maximum speeds of 10 mph which is pretty standard and allows you to use it continuously for 40 minutes on a full charge. The usability is quite simple too as all you need to do is push the throttle to accelerate, let go of it to slow down and hold the hand brake for stopping immediately. One thing to note here is that the E100 comes with a chain motor which requires maintenance to ensure that it won’t come off track while riding.
It comes with an LED light-up deck, power core technology, 90W high torque motor, all-steel construction, hand-operated front braking system, retractable kickstand, 60 minutes of continuous use and can support up to 120 pounds. Aesthetically this is one of the most beautiful scooters out there too. Apart from its unique design, what sets it apart from the rest is the LED light-up deck which looks gorgeous. The black steel body with the red glow looks amazing and will surely turn a lot of heads when you ride it.
The spoked urethane front tire and the rubber rear do offer good overall stability but you will be in for a slightly bumpy experience on uneven surfaces. The scooter is quite durable though, thanks to the all-steel frame and fork. It is designed to last and it shows. The push throttle as well as the hand braking system also makes the riding experience more easy and intuitive, making it perfect for kids and adults alike.
As far as performance is concerned, the 90W motor works well and allows you to go up to 10 mph. It takes about 12 hours to get fully charged but then you will be able to use it continuously for up to 60 minutes which is great considering the scooter also comes with LED lights on its deck. As it’s a hub motor, you don’t have to worry about the chain coming off as it doesn’t use a chain. All you need to do is kick-off and ride into the sunset.
It comes with two color options, large 8” urethane wheels, aluminum T-tube frame, large deck, easy folding capability, rear braking system, adjustable handlebars, foam grips, retractable kickstand and can support up to 220 pounds. This one is made for those who like bold colored scooters and eye-catching graphics. Both green and orange color options go exceptionally well with this scooter and paired with the large graphics, it will surely grab a lot of attention on the streets. Its playful color combination also makes it perfect for kids.
The most unique feature of this scooter is its tires. Not only do the large 8” urethane wheels provide a stable ride but they also come with a mini light show. When it spins, the glowing lights make it look like the Razor logo which is awesome. It’s also foldable and lightweight at 8.75 pounds making it very easy to carry around. You also get a retractable kickstand which is always useful. If you are not comfortable with the height of the handlebar, you can adjust them accordingly. You can adjust it from 29.5” to 41” which makes it perfect for kids and adults alike.
The build quality is superb as it is with all of Razor’s products. The aluminum T-tube frame is sturdy and built to last for a long time. The rear fender brake also works well and brings the scooter to a halt quickly. It is important to note that although it has a very spacious deck, it is only 2.5” off the ground. While the low height makes it easier to kick and push, it also makes it vulnerable to getting scratched at the bottom. So you will need to be a little careful while riding it. Also, similar to all scooters that use a urethane wheel, it can get a little slippery in the rain or when riding on wet surfaces.
This one comes with 16” air-filled tires, 350W motor, rear-wheel drive, wide bamboo deck, cargo carrier, tubular steel frame, twist-grip throttle system, rear mudguard, retractable kickstand and can support up to a maximum weight of 220 pounds. This one is a lot similar to the 500W one but both in terms of design and performance, there are small differences. This one, for instance, allows you to choose either a chain driven-motor or a hub motor. Moreover, in terms of design, this one has a slightly curvier fork which looks better than the straight one seen in the 500W variant. The black body with the bamboo deck also looks amazing.
One noticeable difference you will see here is that it comes with a rear mudguard. So when you riding on wet surfaces or roads that have puddles, you don’t have to worry about the water getting splashed onto your legs. The large 16” wheels also offer you an amazing and smooth riding experience on both even and uneven roads. As it comes with a rear-wheel drive, it also provides better traction and ease of steering which makes it an absolute joy to ride.
The 350W hub motor allows you to go to a maximum speed of 15.5 mph which is awesome especially for adults. On a single charge, you will be able to cover up to 12 miles before recharging the battery. Similar to the 500W variant, this one also comes with a detachable cargo carrier which is perfect for storing small pieces of luggage or grocery bags and other items. Thanks to the height-adjustable handlebars, you can also customize your riding experience.
The Razor E300 electric scooter comes with 9” air-filled tires, all-steel construction, 250W high torque chain motor, 40 minutes of continuous use per full charge and can support up to a maximum weight of 220 pounds. When it comes to design the E300 can be quite divisive. Some love the way it looks with the combination of straight and curvy lines whereas others won’t like it so much. However, there is no denying that it does look fairly unique when compared to other electric scooters especially the raised rear. The color combination is quite basic and it doesn’t grab much attention.
The extra-wide 10” tires provide a great and smooth riding experience. It also comes with a hand-operated rear brake as well as a kickstand for convenience. Once the hand brake is activated, the motor will automatically be shut down to help the scooter stop safely. When it comes to overall durability or sturdiness, this one is built to last for a long time. It can easily bear the wear and tear of daily use and still last for many years without any major hassles. Thanks to its durability and large tires, it can withstand up to 220 pounds which makes it perfect for children and adults alike.
As far as performance is concerned, the E300 provides you with a top speed of up to 15 mph which is great for a 250W motor. A single full charge will give you 40 minutes of continuous use which is good but not as much as some of its competitors. The 24V battery will take up to 12 hours to get fully charged which is pretty standard. You also get a maximum range of 10 miles which should be enough for short commutes. Overall, it’s a great starter scooter for those looking to buy their first electric scooter.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are the benefits of using a razor scooter?
There are multiple benefits associated with buying and using a razor scooter. Some of these are listed below.
If you want to buy a scooter but are on a tight budget, then investing in a razor scooter would be a good decision. As compared to other kinds of scooters, they tend to be more economically priced and even easier to operate. Different brands have razor scooters in different price ranges but most of them are affordable and offer good value for money.
Electric razor scooters don’t run on fuel and therefore, don’t let out gas that ends up polluting the environment. Because of this, they are known as eco-friendly vehicles. Unlike a motorcycle or a car, riding an electric razor scooter doesn’t make you feel guilty about being a contributor to environmental pollution.
Ease of use
Most of the razor scooters are lightweight and portable. You can fold them easily and carry them in a bag while moving from one place to another. Be it an urban city or an area with space constraints, you can ride these scooters anywhere owing to their compact size.
2. What are the different types of razor scooters?
The different types in which razor scooters are available are listed below.
Stand-up scooters feature a T-shaped handle that is quite long and have a flat deck. The battery can be found towards the bottom of the scooter, right below the deck. To ride on the scooter, you will have to stand on the deck. From all the different types of razor scooters, this proves to be the lightest and most affordable. The rider needs to have a solid sense of balance to ride a stand-up razor scooter.
In terms of the look and design, a seated razor scooter bears a strong resemblance to the stand-up variants. Just like the stand-up scooters, it features a T-shaped handle along with a flat deck. The difference lies in the fact that a seated scooter features a seat that is mounted on a post that rises from the deck. The rider gets enough space to stand properly on the deck and ride the scooter using the stand-up method. Some of the seated scooters come with certain extra features like the inclusion of a basket behind the primary seat. The price of most seated scooters tends to be higher than that of stand-up scooters but that is well-compensated by the robust motor and strong battery you get.
European razor scooters tend to be heavier and larger in size than the other two variants. Having said that, the stability and the convenience they provide are much higher than stand-up and seated scooters. The rear fenders and the front panel contribute towards making these scooters stand out and come across as robust vehicles. Their design is also one of their most appealing features. They bear a classic, old-school European look which catches one’s attention immediately. These scooters are also most suitable for shopping because of the storage space they provide you with.
3. What are the things I should consider while buying a razor scooter?
Before you go through a variety of options and choose the razor scooter that you would like to own, you must consider these two important factors.
One of the most important things that you need to consider is the range provided by the scooter. You need to ask yourself the purpose behind investing in a scooter. You must figure out whether you need a scooter for longer commutes or shorter rides. You should be investing in a scooter that can, on a single battery charge, help you reach your destination.
Some people don’t mind the speed at which their scooter moves as long as it helps them reach their destination. For some people, however, speed is very important. Generally, most people wouldn’t be interested in a scooter that moves at a very sluggish pace. You must pick a scooter that can deliver a top speed that you find satisfactory and will be happy with.
