Pink Electric Scooters
I finally “bit the bullet” and bought my youngest daughter the Razor Pocket Mod, which is the pink electric scooter she has been bugging me about for the past 3 months!
For some reason, all the little girls in our neighborhood have suddenly gotten pink electric scooter “fever”!
They seem to be everywhere! It started about 6 months ago, and now I swear their must be at least 7 of them that I see “zipping” along regularly!
In fact, they have gotten together and formed a “scooter” club. They meet every Saturday morning, and “scoot” to a nearby destination.
Fortunately, we live in the country, so traffic isn’t a problem. Luckily, the electric scooters have chain driven motors and are MUCH more quiet than gas powered scooters.
Every once in awhile, parents who own trucks will take the girls and their scooters to fun destinations to do their riding.
Basically, the girls ride 3 different models of pink electric scooters.
All of them are razor Electric scooters. The are the Razor E100 electric scooter, the Razor Pocket Mod, and the Razor E300S seated electric scooter.
The Razor E100 is probably the scooter that is best suited for the younger girls. It is easier to control, and very similar to traditional “push” scooters.
However, it still “scoots” along at up to 10 mph, which is plenty fast to have fun!
The Razor E300S is part of Razor’s new line of “Sweet Pea” scooters. The line features both traditional scooters and electric scooters.
The girls love the accompanying “Sweet Pea” helmets that they can choose to purchase along with the matching pink electric scooter.
This model features a removable, and adjustable seat, which is great for longer rides. Most of these electric scooters for kids can go between 30-45 minutes on a single charge of their batteries.
It is one of the most popular and best selling electric scooters offered in the X Treme electric scooter line.
Make no mistake about it, the X Treme X 360 is serious transportation! It is definitely not to be classified as a “toy”, and parents should carefully evaluate how appropriate it would be for the age and size of their children.
The suggested age requirement of 13 years of age and up, would seem to be fairly accurate. It simply would depend on the maturity level of each potential rider.
Regardless of who rides the X Treme X 360 electric scooter, a helmet is mandatory and not an option. Elbow and knee pads are a good idea, too! Check out my safety tips for more.
This particular model is among the fastest of all scooters that target young riders. It has a listed top speed of 21 mph, however smaller riders can expect to go a little faster.
The speed is possible because of a powerful 350 watt, direct chain driven motor.
It weighs 80 lbs, which is hefty for this class of electric scooter. The extra weight, along with it’s rear shock absorber, make it more than able to ease over bumps.
The end result is a remarkably smooth ride.
The X Treme X 360 electric scooter is perfect for lengthy jaunts and last minute errands, as it has a robust 15-20 mile range. The range really depends on the weight of the rider.
The specs claim that the X360 can handle riders up to 300 lbs! It holds a charge extremely well due to a triple, 12 volt battery pack. Most electric scooters in this class have a dual 12 volt battery packs.
Finally, unlike most electric scooters in this class, the X Treme X 360 has full operating lights, which include directional signals, brake lights and a headlight.
The motor is even key activated, another sophisticated feature!
Our niece got a pink electric scooter for her 12th birthday. The model is a Razor E300S electric scooter, and they call it a “Sweet Pea”.
She has ridden it for about 3 months now,(almost EVERY day!), and my wife and I have noticed a very definite change in her attitude and personality.
In fact, the changes have been so dramatic, that we decided to post “3 Reasons Girls Need Pink Electric Scooters.
Reason #1 – A Pink Electric Scooter Will Get Positive Attention!
The very first time Emily (our niece), rode the scooter around the neighborhood, it definitely was noticed by our neighbors.
Luckily, the scooter is ultra quiet, so the attention was real positive! Many of the kids in the neighborhood came up to her asking for rides.
This was definitely a positive situation, as she was essentially a shy child. In no time, she had accumulated several new friends. She really had cultivated her social skills!
Reason# 2 – A Pink Electric Scooter Can Help Children Become Independent
Emily’s frequent scooter trips really allowed her to “stretch her wings”. In the past, she had always been a “home body”, and never had shown much of an interest in leaving the house. The Razor E300S electric scooter holds a charge for about 45 minutes, which is enough time for her to go “exploring”, but not so long that it keeps her from other important tasks.
Generally, we would charge the scooter overnight, and she would be ready to go for the next day. The scooter has a top speed of 15mph, which is plenty fast enough to keep her interested, yet not so fast that it is dangerous.
Reason# 3– Riding Pink Electric Scooters Is “Old Fashioned” Fun!
Years ago, it seems like kids played outside more than they do today. First, television came along, and rightfully became known as the “boob tube”.
Now, computer games and video games have kids staying inside glued to their monitors. Riding electric scooters is so much fun that kids WANT to be outside.
No doubt about it, Emily’s pink electric scooter has changed her life. And of course, she wears a matching pink helmet!
