Removing it from the box, it was nicely shipped. From reading the directions provided, it was very easy to install. While it says I should charge it for 8 hours at first, I did notice that it comes with some charge (for those impatient to try it out). There were some things I liked about it and some improvements I could see. Things I liked: - The scooter has a nice low profile compared to some other electric scooters. - I like that the charging like it easy to see and understand. - It comes with a nice LED head light and a back light on the rear wheel for visibility purposes (for yourself and others). - The maximum speed is nice (advistised at 15 mph). (comparing to the segaway scooter that is ~17 mph) It is a good speed for a lot cheaper price. - I have not been able to test to overall batter run time, but for entertainment or short distances, 50 min. battery life is good. - The charger is simple and can be plugged into any power outlet. - There are 2 ways to break, with the left thumb brake button of putting your foot on the rear tire (like all other razors). The wheels that come with the scoot seem to be good allowing good traction to the concrete/ pavement. - The frame of the scooter is metal and it has a good grip tape for your feet. Possible improvements: - I notice that the room for your feet is very narrow, not allowing me to easily stand on it for long periods of time. - The kick stand is made of plastic. I believe it would be more durable and less likely to break if that piece was made from steel. - I am close to 200 lbs, I notice that it takes a little while to speed up (again this could be due to weight that it advertises as 220lbs max, you are at lease told in the beginning). - If you have to go up any kind of hills, I notice it has some trouble. Going up our drive way causes the scooter to almost stop if I don't have speed picked up. - I did notice that if you turn the handle too hard (beyond how far the wheel can turn), the handle can move out of alignment with the wheel. make sure you tighten the screw as much as possible to prevent this. - Comparing to some other scooter products, it think it would be see to have a speedometer (or something similar) so that you can know how fast you are going. In the end, considering the price is a little more that $300, this is a great product to own is you want to ride around your neighbor hood and just for entertainment purposes. It is a lot cheaper than some of the other scooters and can still get you around like others. I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a good cheap (price) scooter.
Overall I liked the scooter, it's well built and I liked the feel of it. Begin able to fold the scooter is a huge plus and having an emergency brake system gave me confident driving in the streets, but the electronic brakes can be slow to respond. I had some issues. The charging light can be destructing while driving and it didn't feel sutable for tarmac. I felt it was going to fall apart on high speed, because of the noise, but maybe it's because I weight 180lb. On the sidewalk it performed great, too bad CA don't allow that. I feel like it need some improvement to out perform the Segway scooters that all the apps are using right now, but they are almost there. if they can make it foldable and less noisy in the same time, they are golden in my book.
The Razor Prime III Electric Scooter has a beautiful, sleek design that would be great for younger teens, older teens, and adults. The battery holds longer than I've seen on most other devices and goes as fast as advertised. It also has the durable kickstand that makes it easy to park wherever you may be or you have the option of folding it down and taking it with you wherever you go. It easily folds into a nice compact size that is easy too manage and store without taking up much space. I have used the Razor Prime III daily to go back and forth to the corner store and to ride back and forth to the mailbox as its a walk from my residence. My kids love riding their bikes along with me but have a hard time keeping up as this thing is fast!! My 12-year-old daughter had no problems jumping on and cruising the neighborhood streets while I biked with her also. I was cautious at first because of the speed but she found the device easy to manage, drive, and brake. She learned the device within 5 minutes of jumping on it and she begs daily to take it for a ride. My nephew who is 16 tried it too! He is currently trying to convince his mom he needs one! He took it to meet friends at the park, up to the dollar store, and for a few quick rides just for fun. Him and his friends were really impressed with the design of the model and with the speed! The device is easy to charge as we would just plug it in every night for the next days use. I never ran into any issues with running out of battery even when my nephew was gone to the park for a few hours the device lasted until he made it back home with plenty of battery left. If you are looking for a smooth, riding device that offers plenty of speed and battery for long distances this is the device for you. Whether you are using it on campus to get from point a to point b, for daily trips to the local store, or for leisure purposes you will not regret this purchase. Some features are: Easy to assemble - 5 minute assembly High-torque, paddle control for speed and smooth acceleration and paddle controlled brakes Anti-rattle- There's absolutely no shaking on this scooter which I've experienced in other similar devices. Sleek design: Beautiful for teens, women, and men High speed, long-lasting battery This is a great device that I'll be recommending to everyone in the market for an electric scooter!! Make the next move!! Try the Razor Prime III Electric Scooter!! You won't regret it!!
