The power core E90 electric scooter from Razor is a well thought out product indeed. I’ve always been complaining about their runtime and it was about time they swapped out those chain-driven motors for more energy efficient hub motors.
The E90 is actually a way better choice than the standard E100, apart from the E100 having a pneumatic front tire which helps a lot in reducing shocks.
Let’s jump on it and see what this thing has to offer.
So the E90 has gotten its name power core thanks to Razor switching out the old chain-driven motors for a new 90W hub motor which outperforms the old one by miles, literally. The new motor gives you 100% more runtime on a single charge and since Razor still uses a 12v lead-acid batteries with a charging time of up to 12 hours this is more than welcoming. Did I mention the motor is maintenance free too?
It’s got a perfectly balanced top speed for kids around 5-10 years of age and my boys just loves it. My youngest is 4 and is used to riding various e-rides. He swoops around our outdoor track without a problem in the world.
Assembly was as easy as 1, 2, 3. All you have to do is to fasten the handlebar with the scooter body and your kids will be up and running.
As with all Razor electric scooters, the quality is top of the line and that there are so many cheap spare parts available just makes it even better.
It can reach a top speed of 10 mph which is enough for the targeted audience needs, at least when it comes to my kids aged 4 and 6.
One thing that I felt was missing is the push-button throttle. I would have liked for them to be able to adjust speed better with a variable throttle, however, they don’t seem to mind it.
Comparing it to the E100 that I reviewed a while back this thing has the same top speed but double the runtime and it even cost a few dollars less. I don’t really understand how that works, but I’m not complaining.
It can accommodate riders up to 120 lbs, has a retractable kickstand, the traditional kick-to-start function which means that you have to kick up to 3 mph in order to get the engine to work, and a hand-operated front fender brake which is actually very good.
