How to Ride a Razor Scooter

Save

If you love to skateboard, and you love to rollerblade, then you should definitely check out the Razor Scooter. Made of two small wheels, a braking system and a platform to place your feet, the Razor Scooter makes a cool alternative to other types of fun on wheels. Here's how to ride it in just a few quick steps.

  • Look for smooth surfaces to ride your Razor Scooter on. Because the wheels of the Razor Scooter are so low to the ground, it does not ride well on any terrain other than asphalt and packed dirt. Any other type of terrain (gravel, grass and loose dirt) will cause the wheels to bind. This will not only damage your Razor Scooter, but put you in danger of falling as well.

  • Place one foot on the baseboard. The baseboard is the board between the two wheels on your Razor Scooter.

  • Push off the ground with your other foot.

  • Repeat the "push off" motion with your other foot until you have reached your desired speed.

  • Bring your second foot onto the baseboard and find your balance. At this point, it will feel a lot like skateboarding with a handle.

  • Steer to your desired destination.

  • Apply the brakes by stepping on the rear fender. Before you go off jet-setting around town, make sure you practice braking slowly and safely at various speeds.

Tips & Warnings

  • For enhanced turns, the Razor Scooter owner's manual suggests leaning your upper body in the direction you wish to turn.
  • Always ride your Razor Scooter with protective gear inclusive of a helmet, elbow and knees pads.
  • The owner's manual informs people who ride their product that doing stunts or tricks on the Razor Scooter will impair the rider's balance and control of the scooter.
