What You Need To Know About The New Razor Scooter
So a new razor scooter has come to town and you are looking to know everything there is to know about it. You are at the right place. In this article, we will thoroughly explain what you need to know about the Razor Spider-man Power Core™ E90™, the latest addition to Razor’s electric scooters. We will go in depth and give you much more than what the company’s marketing team has to say.
After all, you just need to look around on Amazon and you will quickly confirm that nowadays every scooter seems to be marketed as the fastest, most customizable model available. Which is quite simply, untrue. But first, let us get to know Razor and what they are all about a bit more.
What needs to be stated from the get go is that Razor is not your run of the mill corporation. Since they first started designing and producing products, from the start of their original “a model scooter” they have been constantly trying to find new, innovative ways to push their creative boundaries and deliver excellent quality products. They entered the new millenium, 2000, with four awards and since then they have consistently been awarded at the very least three new awards for their products and designs per year. In 2014, in fact, they got 13 awards.
As is plain to see for everyone, Razor is a brand with a long history of repeated and proven success. Their products might not be the cheapest – you can certainly find more affordable alternatives if you look around enough – but their quality is unquestionable. This of courses is true of the Razor Spider-man Power Core™ E90™ electric scooter, the focus of the current article. Time to get into the product’s specifics.
We are all familiar with the popular Spider-man quote, “With great power, comes great responsibility”. Razor took this quote and turned it to “With great power, comes great fun”. And this is exactly what their new product is all about. Combining a fun and well loved comic book hero theme with excellent and reliable specifications the new Power Core electric scooter promises to grant a hell of a lot of enjoyment as well as top speed and maneuverability.

WHAT MAKES RAZOR’S NEW SCOOTER SPECIAL
As we mentioned before, Razor is a brand that is renowned all around the United States for its no compromises policy on quality, safety, service and style. By getting their product instead of a low quality imitation, you are practically guaranteeing the scooter will rock on all these fronts. Second, its Power Core™ delivers a significantly increased ride time and 50% more torque than the original E90.
Eighty minutes of continuous use is quite a lot, when it comes to this kind of electric scooters. The fact that there is a fully rechargeable battery, as well as an included battery charger in the package only makes the deal sweeter. And you need not worry about assembling the scooter. Razor has got your back covered: They have a downloadable, detailed and comprehensive “Owner’s Manual” for you on their site that will make everything as smooth as a summer’s breeze.
And then of course there is the design. If you have ever been a fan of the most loved Marvel Comics superhero, if you have ever rooted for Spiderman, then you can’t help but love the way the scooter looks. Sporting the classic red and blue colors, as well as the iconic spider web design, this electric scooter definitely looks the part. All in all, Spider-man Power Core™ E90™ electric scooter talks the talk and walks the walk.
THE SCOOTER’S ONE BIG DOWNSIDE
After searching around the web, we have identified a recurring issue a number of people had with the electric scooter. Apparently, in many cases, it started to malfunction and break down after some use. We firmly believe these are cases of specific malfunctioning parts – otherwise, if the model had an inherent problem these issues would be much more common – but what is really troubling is that Razor does not sell replacement parts. If you are one of the unlucky ones and get a product that has a slight damage or malfunction, it looks like you can not easily get your hands in a new part to fix it. In such cases, you should try your luck on Razor’s customer support, which is available on specific hours of the day.
Like we said, the issues presented by these customers are probably due to problems with their own, specific product. However, the fact that the company does not have replacement parts readily available is a real problem, and it would be unfair not to mention it.
By now you should have a sound understanding of Razor’s Spider-man Power Core™ E90™ electric scooter. It is a model that is by far superior to previous models of Razor, and a product hat practically leaves similar scooters by other company’s miles behind in both style and performance. That being said, the lack of available replacement parts is quite troubling.
You cannot really predict whether your specific model will have an issue, and it is annoying to think that you will have to go under a lengthy process via customer support to get it solved. Although this is a real problem, it does not seem to be too common to justify much worry. For every critical review, there seems to be dozens of reviews of customers that were well satisfied.
