The opulent choices in kids electric scooters today run the gamut from simple ‘razor’ style scooters (made by Razor and other companies) which are simply a small electric motor attached to a beefed up board; to the mini electric scooters complete with padded seats and matching helmets in the tradition of the Vespa.
Most of the toy scooters are not intended to go very fast. Since the majority of their target market is not even old enough to have a license, the law has some vague limitations on speed and safety regarding the production and riding of electric scooters.
In some states such as California, an electric scooter is street legal so long as the rider is wearing a helmet. As a general safety rule, especially for kids, this is one of the best.
Kids electric scooters have an amazing amount of engineering behind them considering the average price point of a basic electric scooter.
If you are looking for a simple board on two wheels with handlebars and a handbrake, you can buy a scooter that will carry a two hundred pound rider up to 6 mph for about $150. These scooters will go about 7 miles on a single charge, and can be recharged at a 120-volt outlet.
To take it one giant step up, the TRX is a cutting edge electric scooter with three wheels and a platform that allows the rider to stand facing forward, a much more stable position to ride in.
The TRX scooter can travel at up to twelve miles an hour for approximately 15 miles on one charge, and can carry a rider that weighs up to 250 pounds.
This unique scooter is also endowed with a larger front wheel and is very adept at taking corners while maintaining control.
These scooters are often seen being ridden by security at events or shopping centers. Plan on spending a little more for this sixty-pound behemoth, around three hundred dollars.
As one of the pioneers of scooter style, the Razor company has an extensive line of kids electric scooters available.read latest news at http://www.theverge.com/2015/12/3/9841640/urb-e-electric-scooter-hands-on-review
The style is, for the most part, modeled after their original razors, with some noted differences: like most electric scooters, the build is more rugged, including a thicker connection between the board and handlebars, heavier wheels, and solid rubber throttle and handle grips.
These scooters, whether from Razor or another manufacturer offer excellent value for the money. For about a hundred dollars, you can get a sharply designed scooter that will carry the average eight-year-old, or up to 120 pounds, can go about ten mph with almost an hour of continuous use.
One of the hottest trends in kids electric scooters is the Razor iMod, which has a place for docking your iPod, as well as FM radio, so you can listen to your tunes while cruising with your friends down the block.
With the environmentally friendly electric scooter, kids can travel in style and get to their destination quickly, and safely.
