Razor Hovertrax™: Buyer’s Guide to This Season’s Hottest Ride

Posted by & filed under Eco-Friendly, Electric, Holiday Wishlists, Parents, Press Release, Razor Scooters.

What Shoppers Should Know Before Buying One of the Hottest Items this Season.

Razor Hovertrax™ - The Genuine Smart Scooter Razor Hovertrax™ Hover Board (Blue)

Razor, the company licensed to manufacture and sell the authentic Hovertrax, cares about riders. With the prevalence of cheaply made imitations attempting to flood the market, safety concerns are paramount.

Check out the All-new Razor Hovertrax Self Balancing Scooter

What is Hovertrax? It is an electrically motorized, computerized, gyroscopically-balance-assisted, independently articulated, dual-platform two-wheeled personal mobility system. The Razor Hovertrax does not operate “magically,” nor does it fly or float. Its movements are controlled by the angle of the rider’s feet relative to the ground. It is totally “hands-free” in operation, yet it can go forward, stop, turn and back up.

Razor provides three vital tips for consumers to make wise purchases, with a focus on rider safety as well as enjoyment.

  1. Avoid inferior imitations. Look for Razor Hovertrax, the genuine article, invented by Shane Chen, and manufactured to Razor quality standards.  Razor has years of experience with electric ride-on products and rechargeable batteries. The company’s track record of standing behind their products is well known. Hovertrax uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Consumers should carefully read the user’s manual concerning charging.
  2. Review the Owner’s Manual. As with all products with wheels, Hovertrax moves when used, and therefore it is possible to fall off. The technology does allow the rider to control movement with feet alone, and Razor recommends that all users read and understand all of the safety, learning and riding tips in its Hovertrax owner’s manual to minimize risks of use.
  3. Take Appropriate Precautions. Falling from a moving product – such as a bicycle, skateboard or Hovertrax – can result in injuries. As always, care and practice can minimize the risk of unfortunate accidents. Razor certainly advocates careful learning, and use of safety equipment in all circumstances.

From day one, Razor has focused on providing the very best riding experience, combining cutting-edge technology, high-quality materials and innovation to deliver products designed to suit riders’ evolving lifestyles.

The Razor brand embodies the spirit of fun and freedom. The company was founded in 2000 with the introduction of its now legendary kick scooter, which quickly became an essential ride for anyone on the go. Today, Razor products are available worldwide, with a full range of wheeled goods to inspire and excite riders everywhere.

How to Replace Your Razor Scooter Wheels in 3 Easy Steps

How to Replace Razor Scooter Wheels in 3 Easy Steps

Are your scooter wheels worn out from hitting the pavement too hard?

It happens to the best of us. You’re out soaking up the sun, riding your Razor scooter without a care in the world and you notice scuffed wheels or flat spots that weren’t there before. Your smooth cruiser is now a rough rider — bummer.

After so many 360s, powerslides and hard grinds, even the most durable wheels will suffer from a little wear and tear.

But there’s an easy fix. Grab a pair of allen wrenches from dad’s toolbox (or your last Ikea project!), then follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Loosen the Old Wheel

    Insert an allen wrench into each screw on both sides of the old wheel, crank the allen wrench counter-clockwise to loosen the screws and pull out the axle.

  2. Replace with New Wheel

    Slide out your old, worn out wheel. Then slide your shiny new Razor wheel into the front fork. Finally, insert the axle you pulled out during step 1, making sure that the spacer is centered. BTW genuine Razor wheels come with bearings so no need to worry about re-alignment!

  3. Tighten the New Wheel

    With your new wheel in place, tighten the screws on your new wheel using the allen wrenches. Boom, you’re back on your Razor scooter. Donezo.

Say hello to a new set of rad Razor scooter wheels and goodbye to bumpy rides.

What’s My Razor Scooter’s Wheel Size?

  • A3: 125mm
  • A5 Lux: 200mm
  • Cruiser: 140mm

All genuine Razor wheels come with bearings installed. Be sure to refer to your Razor Owner’s Manual for your specific Razor ride to determine the size of your original wheels before buying replacements.

Helpful Tips From the Owner’s Manual

Under normal circumstances and conditions, Razor wheels and wheel bearings are maintenance free. Nonetheless, it is the responsibility of the owner or guardian to periodically inspect the wheels for wear and tear, the axle for proper tightness, and bearings for side-to-side play, and loose parts. When a wheel or wheel bearing develops play, this is an indication of excess wear and replacement is necessary. Replace immediately with only genuine Razor wheels. Worn wheels/bearings are considered normal wear-and-tear and are not covered by the Razor Warranty. Wheels other than genuine Razor wheels may not be compatible with your Razor scooter. The use of anything other than genuine Razor replacement parts may affect your safety and will void your warranty.
