The Best Electric Scooter For An 8 Year Old
So your 8 year old is a big boy or girl by now and wants to ride in style and on something “cool”. Been there, done that 😎, I have 4 kids and 2 of them are 10 and 12 so I know that phase very well.
Of course, as a sensible parent, you explore the options and you land on an electric scooter.
Next, you start to look for what the best electric scooter for 8 year olds is and you dive down a rabbit hole of reviews and suggestions, and soon you can’t see the trees through the forest anymore. I know the feeling.
That’s why we tested a couple of electric scooters suitable for 8-year-old young rebels. And one stood out during our tests and my kid’s rigorous tests so without further ado, here’s our top pick:
Our Top Pick for Best Electric Scooter for 8 Year Olds
Razor E100 Review
The Razor E100 is an awesome electric scooter for kids (and adults) to learn how to ride on an electric scooter.
This sturdy electric scooter is suitable for young rebels age 8 to 12.
Razor recommends 8+ but I know in our neighborhood there is a kid who’s 6 and he rides one (like a madman) as well. You know your kid best so it’s up to you to judge if he/she can or can’t ride this E100.
This Razor E100 with a 24V rechargeable battery carries a weight of 54 kilograms and runs for approximately 40 minutes without interruption.
Please note that the weight of the child has an influence on battery life. Is the battery empty? Then you can charge it with the included battery charger in about 8 hours (the first time you use it it will be close to 12 hours). I know in kids hours that feels like a week.
My kids use it to race other kids in the neighborhood and they can race about 40 minutes at full speed before the battery dies. Then the nagging starts asking how much longer it will take before it’s charged again so they can go race again.
Young speed devils can reach a maximum speed of 10mph (16 km/h) on the E100.
They accelerate by turning the handle, just like with a real bike.
Thanks to the front and rear brake, they immediately come to a stop.
Supplied as standard with a 24V rechargeable battery and a charger.
The Razor E100 comes in a variety of colors:
3 types of Pink
The Razor E100 has a 100w (chain driven) motor with a top speed of 10mph (16km/h) which is fast enough to make you nervous the first time your little angel puts the pedal to the metal.
It is a fun and safe scooter and perfect to introduce your kids to the world of electric scooters.
The 24v battery is powerful enough to have a rider up to 120lbs (55kg)
The charging time is 8 hours.
The Razor E100 features brakes in the front and rear providing enough stopping power to stop fast and safely.
The Razor E100 comes standard with 8” air tires making it comfortable for kids to ride on.
The Razor E100 has no display.
The Razor E100 has no suspension, but the air-filled tires make up for the lack of a suspension.
This scooter has 8” air-filled tires. The tires on the Razor E100 are road tires.
Weight and maximum load
The Razor E100 we tested weighs in at 26lbs (12kg)
The maximum load for this scooter is specified at 120lbs (55kg)
