You can’t beat the aesthetic of a vintage inspired scooter, and that’s exactly what Razor has created here.
This Euro style electric scooter is a blast from the past. It’s an old style body encasing new technology for the younger generation to enjoy. While you may fall in love with this scooter on sight, what’s inside of it is equally as important.
Though Razor is well known for making affordably priced sports equipment, does this euro scooter meet the quality standard we’ve come to expect from the brand? It may look cool, but is it worth paying so much for?
Overview of the Razor Pocket Mod Miniature Euro Electric Scooter
Razor offers a variety of scooters, but this one is the most unique in its appearance. It’s much different from any of their other models, due to its vintage design. As you can expect from Razor, it’s priced competitively. Other similar scooters on the market can cost nearly five times as much.
Outside of its design, the scooter itself is nothing fancy. It compares to other electric ride-on scooters when it comes to components and performance. In terms of longevity and value for money, this scooter shines above the rest.
Specifications and Features
If you’re looking to purchase this scooter for your child, you’re in luck. This scooter is designed for riders ages 13 and up, though many reviewers report that they’ve purchased them for even younger children.
As long as the rider is adequately supervised and safe, this scooter can handle anyone weighing under the 150 pound limit.
The scooter comes in light purple, pink, red, and black, giving you options for both boys and girls. This is especially helpful if you have multiple children in your household, as they’ll each be able to have a unique scooter.
The motor itself is chain driven, high torque, and features a variable speed engine that allows riders to go up to fifteen miles per hour with its twist grip acceleration control and hand operated rear brake. At top speed, they’ll be able to travel as far as ten miles on a fully charged battery, or 40 minutes of continuous use. This scooter comes with 12 inch pneumatic tires, and the suspension system in in the rear.
This model includes storage under the seat, excellent for kids who want to bring their books to study at a friend’s house, or run up to the corner store to grab a snack. Since this scooter is scaled down, kids will be able to ride it efficiently – they’ll be able to reach the pedals and the handlebars from a safely seated position.
- Speed tops out at 15 miles per hour, so parents won’t have to worry about their kids going too fast.
- Designed with kids in mind, sized to fit smaller bodies.
- Variety of styles allows the rider to choose the scooter that fits them the best.
- Easy setup – an adult can have the Pocket Mod ready to ride in fifteen minutes.
- Tires allow the scooter to ride over grass and dirt easily, allowing kids to enjoy it in their back yards or at the park.
- Sealed Lead Acid batteries are difficult to replace.
- Headlight is not functional – it’s merely for decorative purposes.
- Tubes in the tires could be better quality, and may need to be replaced with frequent riding.
It’s important to prioritize the safety of your children with sports equipment, especially if the equipment is electric and goes faster than manual equipment would. While 15 miles per hour is a safe top speed, this doesn’t mean you should allow you children to ride without the proper safety gear.
Helmets, elbow pads, and knee pads can reduce the risk of injury if your child should fall.
Always supervise young children while they’re riding their Pocket Mod, especially while they’re still learning.
Only allow your children to ride in safe environments. This scooter is not designed for hill climbing, jumps, ramps, or tricks and should not be used to perform them. Always follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions. Make sure your child knows how to operate their scooter properly.
What Reviewers Have to Say
It’s always a good sign when a product receives a 4.5 star rating. 71% of reviewers gave this product 5 stars, and were eager to share their positive experience with the Razor Pocket Mod.
Parents are most happy about the modest speed of this scooter – fifteen miles per hour allows kids to feel as though they’re going lightning fast without ever reaching a dangerous speed. Parents also love how quiet the motor is compared to other electric scooters designed for children, which are often very noisy.
Parents also love how long the battery lasts, some reporting that their smaller children are able to ride for up to three hours before the battery needs to be charged. The simple charging process is something that reviewers appreciate – simply plug it into the wall. Many users report that their unit will charge from a completely dead battery in as little as eight hours. They plug it in while their children are at school, and it’s ready to ride by the time they get home.
Overall, reviewers feel as though they’ve gotten an excellent deal. With some of them having paid more for lesser quality electric scooters in the past, the Razor Pocket Mod feels like a steal. It’s an affordable gift that their children love. Everyone wins.
This scooter is simply too good to pass up. At a price point that rivals more luxurious brands, Razor delivers top of the line performance. With a value this great, it may be worth it to buy multiple scooters for all of your children, rather than one expensive scooter for them to share.
The design is unique, the components are of superior quality, and the price tag is very affordable. This scooter deserves its excellent rating, and it’s worth bringing one home for your kids.
