Power Core E195 Electric Scooter

Read on for all of our favorite picks for the best electric scooters. He found the controls to be well placed and let him quickly brake or accelerate while riding. The handbrake, which connects to the front razor electric scooter wheel, was strong enough to bring the E100 to a fast stop, even when going quickly down a hill. However, the lack of suspension made bumps in the road and on sidewalks a little tough on the scooter.

And, it’s important to always wear a helmet when riding an electric scooter. The E100 has a 100-Watt motor that’s connected to the rear wheel via a chain, which made the scooter a lot louder than those with motors connected directly to the rear wheel. The Razor PowerCore E100, which has a hub-mounted motor, should be quieter. What is of greater concern is the lack of reflectors or other safety measures. While we don’t expect a scooter at this price to have head or tail lights, we would like to see both front and rear reflectors, as well as a bell for warning others. These are standard safety features for bicycles, and should be for scooters as well.

Extra features like headlights, reflectors and available speedometer also factored into our commuter picks. I also liked the very clean design of the Hiboy S2; there aren’t a lot of dangling wires and such. The one caveat is its rear latching mechanism, which was a bit finicky. The S2’s 350-Watt motor proved up to the task for most situations, but like most budget scooters, I found it had trouble on hills. Its battery life is good for a scooter in this price range, but expect to charge it every few days if you plan on doing a lot of riding. Regardless of the electric scooter you choose, we suggest plenty of practice before you hit the road.

The Razor E100 is a capable and dependable electric scooter for kids that doesn’t cost too much. It’s a bit noisy, so we suggest opting for the PowerCore E100, which is about $10 more, but has a hub-mounted motor. The Razor Icon is its aptly named successor, adding a motor but keeping the same overall look. Beneath the exterior, though, is a great midrange scooter that’s affordably priced, with  good range and a suitably strong motor.

The Glion Balto is the best electric scooter for those who want something they can use to pick up groceries or carry things to and from the store. With an estimated 40-mile range, this scooter will get you where you need to go — wherever it is. Our biggest complaint with the E100 — and common to most Razor scooters under $200 — is that it lacks reflectors or a bell or horn. Other than that, the biggest problem you’ll have with the Razor E100 is getting your kid off it. Unfortunately, the combination of the motor, hard composite wheels, and lack of suspension made the E100 a loud scooter. Whether it was from the noise or from the recalcitrance of an 8-year-old, Chase didn’t always come back to his dad when asked.
