Both the electric scooter line and the kick scooter line from Razor can reach some pretty good speeds. There are a lot of ways to keep your scooter riding faster for longer. Your scooter can have a very long life if you take care of it well. The kick scooters will continue to ride smooth and fast, and the electric scooters will last longer and travel faster and farther if you keep good care of it.
If you own a kick scooter you probably know by now that they can really take a beating by all the riding. If you try tricks then your scooter even takes more of a beating. The more wear and tear on your scooter the shorter the life it will have and the slower it will ride. One of the first things you can do if you feel your scooter is traveling slowly is to change the wheels and bearings. I know this sounds simple but new wheels can really help improve the speed of your scooter. You can also practice new riding techniques. Keep your body in tight to the scooter to reduce the wind resistance. Make sure that you always store your scooter inside a garage or house. This will help the scooter last much longer. If your scooter gets rained on or left out in the cold it could affect the smoothness of the overall ride. You do not want mud or rust to get into the main steering or wheel components.
If you own an electric scooter you know that there are many more things that can go wrong with the electric scooter to hinder the performance. That is why the way you care for your electric scooter is more important then even the way you care for a kick scooter. First always store your scooter indoors. You never want an electric scooter left outside because if rain gets into the battery or wires it could be very bad. Any type of physical damage has the potential to slow your scooter down. Caring for your battery is very important as well. It is a good practice to ride your scooter until the battery runs completely out. Then recharge the battery 100% before riding again. This will prolong the life of your electric scooter and therefore keep you riding faster for longer. If your scooter gets real dirty especially by the mechanics of it then before you are done just wipe of the dirt. When the mud or dirt dries up it can become dusty and get into the small parts of your motor more easily so clean your scooter if it gets muddy. In order to ride faster always make sure that your wheels are okay and if they need replacing the replace them. Now that you have kept your scooter in good shape you want to actually jump on it and ride faster. Some good techniques for riding faster are keep your body in close and tight to the scooter to reduce the wind drag. Try to ride on the smoothest path, and obviously riding downhill will always improve your speed. Remember to always be safe and have fun riding fast on your razor scooter.
