Razor Scooters

Razor Scooters — The updated fifties classic toy has adults from San Francisco to New York City scooting

Posted on

The Razor scooter (ranging from $99 to $129)

Not Your Daddy’s Set of Wheels
The updated 1950s classic weighs a mere six pounds, has in-line skate wheels, and collapses to fit into small spaces.
Who’s Buying
Everyone from San Francisco commuters to pre-pubescent New Yorkers, not to mention the entire population of Japan. Says Lou Soucie of The Sharper Image, ”It has now become our No. 1 seller.”
Power Source
Fred Flintstone footwork all the way.
The Need for Speed
For those who crave the scooter experience without the effort, there are battery-powered Zappies (Kevin Spacey is a big fan) and gas-fueled Go-Peds.
Traffic Report
California has already outlawed the use of all scooters on pedestrian walkways.
Accessorizing Your Scooter
Razor-mobilia items include tote bags, stickers, helmets, and T-shirts.
