Features and Specifications
Motor and Batteries
The RazorX Cruiser is powered by a single, 125-watt electric motor. The electric motor is connected to the right rear wheel using a series of gears, giving the board a bit of torque. The Cruiser is capable of speeds up to 10 miles per hour, which is the perfect maximum speed for kids to ride. In fact, the RazorX Cruiser is for kids aged 9 and up.
Even though the Cruiser is marketed more on kids, adults (up to 220 pounds) can also ride the board, although you need to keep in mind that the rider’s weight will affect the maximum speed and range.
The batteries of the Cruiser are capable of outputs up to 24 volts, and they also hold enough juice for 40 minutes of continuous use, which means that it can travel an estimated 5 to 6 miles on a full charge.
Deck and Wheels
The deck of the Cruiser is made of 5 layers of Canadian maple, providing the deck with enough flex to absorb the bumps and dips in the road. However, it still is quite rigid, making it easy to maneuver. Your kids will learn how to carve the sidewalks in no time flat.
The wheels are made of 80a polyurethane, this gives the wheel just enough give that allows it to grip the road much easier. It also has reverse-kingpin trucks to give the board more stability, especially when making turns.
Weighing just 10 and a half pounds, the RazorX Cruiser is just the perfect size and weight for children. They can carry the board under their arm, or they can strap it onto their backpacks.
The perfect maximum speed for beginners
Parents do not need to worry about their kids getting thrown off the Cruiser as the board can only reach a maximum speed of 10 miles per hour, and at a distance of between 6 to 7 miles. The risk of accidents happening is pretty slim.
It is very rare for you to find any kind of electric skateboard that are at the same price point as the Cruiser. This means that even kids can afford this board if they save their money for a couple of months. If you want to teach your kids the value of saving up their money, tell them about the RazorX Cruiser.
There are plenty more reasons why you should buy this board, and the best way to find them out is to actually go and buy one for your kids.
The board could be more robust
The RazorX Cruiser is composed of five layers of Canadian maple wood, which really give the deck more flex. However, when someone weighing just a bit over 150 pounds rides it, there is a good chance that the board will snap into two. Then again, the RazorX Cruiser is marketed for kids’ use.
The single 125-watt motor is not enough for the bigger kids
Although the RazorX Cruiser is meant for kids, bigger kids might find it highly underpowered. Although the board is rated for loads up to 200 pounds, 12 or 13 year olds might find that going 8 miles per hour, which is actually the average speed that this can go (10 miles per hour is the maximum, and can only happen when everything is perfect), is not as exhilarating.
Who is it for?
As mentioned before, the RazorX Cruiser is meant mainly for kids’ use. It’s 125-watt motor, which is even smaller than that of the Maxfind MAX C Electric Skateboard, will have a hard time carrying the weight of a full-grown adult. Also, the 10 miles per hour maximum speed is usually not enough for people who are experienced at riding boards (it is actually much faster to kick off the ground).
However, for kids, 10 miles per hour is plenty fast enough. This makes for a great training board for your young kids, much better than giving them a Boosted 2nd Gen Dual+ Standard Range Electric Skateboard.
Although the Razor X Cruiser is not nearly as powerful as the Boosted Stealth Electric Skateboard, let me ask you this, “will you let your ten-year-old anywhere near a Boosted board?”, probably not. The Cruiser is marketed mainly for beginners and kids; if you have experience riding more powerful electric skateboards, you will be sorely disappointed with this one. However, if you are a 9-year-old kid, riding on a skateboard that can go forward without kicking off the ground is actually pretty amazing.
If you are thinking of getting your kids one of these things, or if you are looking for a non-scary electric skateboard that you can practice on, then the RazorX Cruiser is the one for you.
