Razor’s 300 series is a fun, slightly more powerful electric scooter series that can handle some action.
With a higher weight limit than the E100 and a more powerful motor, the 300 series is meant for kids with a little more experience.
So should you get the E300, E300S, or E325? There’s good news for you.
So What’s the Big Difference?

Like other series models from Razor, the difference in model numbers within the same series isn’t about specs. Razor uses those numbers to distinguish between exclusive licenses with retailers, so the numbers are often the result of having exclusive colors, for example.
In other words, the 300 and the 325 are basically the same model. They’re named for different retailer licenses. The 300S offers a removable seat (hence the “s”), but other than that, the features are the same as the other models in this series. Phew.
Introducing the Razor 300 Series
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s go over what’s available in this Razor series. It’s intended for older children with some experience with motorized scooters, and they could even support a small adult. Let’s break down the features to see if this is the right series for your child.
All three models in the 300 series boast an impressive 250-watt motor. It reaches speeds of up to 15 miles per hour and handles uneven terrain well.
If your child is on the heavier end of the weight range, the power of the motor should help keep things moving easily instead of getting bogged down by environmental factors.
All three in this series feature the same motor type. It might even be suitable for particularly small adults, so if you’re planning to give it a go yourself, that could be a good option.
The 300 series offers a 220-pound weight limit, suitable for most kids and even many adults. It’s designed for older children who have some experience with motorized scooters and therefore could be hard to handle for smaller children who lack that experience.
Tired of watching your kids have all the fun? If you weigh under 220 pounds, feel free to hop on. And if you have a range of older kids, the weight capacity should be suitable for all of them.
Razor batteries aren’t astonishing, but you do get about 40 minutes to a charge if you go full out. Since most kids use a combination of kicking and motor, you may be able to play longer depending on how hard your child rides.
It takes about 12 hours for the batteries to fully charge, so be sure you’re charging at night while your child is asleep.
The good news is scooters are still operational from an analog standpoint. If the battery runs out, your child can still use it as a classic kick scooter to get back home.
We do wish the battery lasted longer, but it’s pretty good for the wattage and weight limit. Again, under ideal conditions, the battery lasts about 40 minutes if you kick on the motor and don’t stop until it’s dead.
Size and Weight
It’s not a light scooter at a whopping 46 pounds. The good news is that it’s more stable because of that weight. Your older child will be able to remain stable on the scooter and possibly handle curves better.
However, if your child is on the smaller side, this might be too much scooter to handle safely.
A larger scooter, it measures 41 x 17 x 42 inches, best for children who are older, taller, or more experienced riders.
Hand-operated rear brakes offer stability and can handle speed and weight. They’re stable and make sure the scooter is secured even when moving quickly.
The brakes are useful for controlling speed as well while the motor is running and can help kids practice advanced motor skills like hand-eye coordination.
This model series uses a pneumatic set of wheels to help even out the ride and protect from accidental spills because of small obstacles. They’re 10-inch wheels, which provide a lot of stability and just an overall cleaner ride.
They shouldn’t have much maintenance and will hold up to the environment a lot better than a standard plastic wheel. Plus, the extra width is a better base for the kind of power this model puts out.
Our Verdict: Great for Older, More Experienced Kids
The 300 series is best for a child who is already familiar with scooters, especially electric ones. The higher weight limit and larger frame are suitable for big kids, and you might even be able to get on yourself to show those kids what’s up.
We’d love to see longer battery life, but considering how much power the battery supports, we do think 40 minutes is acceptable. Make sure you leave the charger somewhere you can get to it easily so that it’s always ready when your kids are.
Scooters are useful tools for getting kids outside and playing. Electric scooters can be great for motor skills and for socializing. Plus, you’ll be the most popular gift-giver on the block when you come home with one of these.
You may even find yourself competing with your kids to see who can go the fastest. Fun for your kids and fun for (nearly) the whole family.
