Remember The Scooter?
The Razor A scooter … What does that phrase make you reckon about? If you have kids, I’m sure that you’ve already heard of the Razor A scooter series, but they weren’t about when we were kids. But, the thought was, although I forget the marques from my childhood.
I loved my two-wheeled, kick-powered scooter when I was young. Mum and Dad had their car, my older brothers had their bicycles and I had my scooter. It didn’t go quick, but then, I didn’t go far either, but it was transport and it gave a feeling of freedom. I had my wheels and I was mobile!
Well, the modern equivalent of that scooter is the Razor A scooter series. And they really are modern too! They are a long chalk from the simple scooters of years ago. The Razor A scooter series was introduced in the year 2000 and is tough, log-lasting, collapsible and as safe as you can get.
The Razor A scooter series comes in several guises to accommodate different age groups, abilities and wallets. For instance, the Razor A scooter is meant for children of six years and older, while the Razor A2 scooter, the Razor A3 scooter and the Razor Pro scooter are meant for older, heavier, more demanding and more skilful enthusiasts. With prices beginning at about $25 none of them can be considered over-priced.
The Razor A scooter series is made from aircraft-grade light aluminium and weighs in at just six pounds. That’s light enough for any small child to be able to carry, if required, without risk of strain. It is also collapsible, which means that it is simple to carry under your arm, in the boot of your car or on the bus. Storage is a cinch too.
The Razor A scooter series is height-adjustable too in that the handlebars can be elevated as your child grows up or if an older sibling wants a go. It also has a formidable brake, which is naturally very vital as these scooters will easily travel at speeds of five or six mph on the level and much more on a slope. Going down hill, that is.
The Razor A scooter series also has lesser and greater stable mates. The Razor Kiddie Kick is meant for children younger than six and has a third wheel for increased stability, although it is just as robust and long-lasting as the Razor A scooter series. The Razor A scooter series is intended for ‘young-minded’ people from the age of six. I use the words ‘young-minded’ because it is quite the rage now, to place one in the car and scooter the last mile or two into the office or college. That mile or two every day will save you fuel and give you more exercise over a long period of time. After all, it all adds up, doesn’t it?
Furthermore, for those who want a bit more power, there are the Razor E100(S), Razor E200(S) and the Razor E300(S), which are electrically powered scooters. The (S) means that they have a seat fitted.
So, why not introduce your kid to the thought of travel with a Razor A scooter? Give your child the opportunity to look back on his or her youth in 20-30 years time and remember zooming about at three-five mph on a Razor A scooter.
