The electric scooters we have head to head here are the E100, manufactured by Razor, versus the 10X, manufactured by Zero. We’ll take a deep dive into the specs of both brands, to help you decide which is better depending on your needs, and what you will mostly be using your electric scooter for.

Electric scooters are all about ease of use, versatility and convenience. They are designed to make urban commuting easy, which makes their weight one of the key characteristics to take into account.

The Razor E100 has a total weight of 30 lbs (14 kg), whereas the Zero 10X has a total weight of 77 lbs (35 kg). Both models are quite heavy, neither is a good option for a commute where you’ll need to carry your scooter.

Of course, convenience and portability is only one part of the puzzle. It is important to know how an electric scooter actually rides, and whether it will be able to handle your specific commute.

If your commute is a hilly one, then you’ll want to pay careful attention to the motor power, as this is key in getting you and your scooter up hills.

Razor E100 has a top speed of 10 mi/hr (16 km/hr) versus a top speed of 40 mi/hr (64 km/hr) for Zero 10X. So if you are looking at long, flat stretches on your commute, and if speed is your thing, then Zero 10X is the best choice.

When it comes to distance travelling, however, then the range of the electric scooter is going to be a key factor. Razor E100 has a range of 7 miles (11 km), while Zero 10X has a range of 55 miles (89 km). If your commute is more than 20 miles (32 km), then Zero 10X would be the better choice.

Battery life and recharge time are also important factors to take into account. Razor E100 has a battery capacity of 100W, and Zero 10X has a capacity of 936 Wh. Razor E100 will recharge fully from empty in 12 hours, and Zero 10X will take 6 - 7 hours to fully recharge.

Now onto safety. Brakes are one of the most important safety features of an electric scooter, and may be the only difference between a safely completed journey and a trip to the emergency room. There are a number of different brake options available for electric scooters, all of which have their respective pros and cons.

Disc brakes have the best braking power, give excellent control and perform well in all conditions, although they do require maintenance, and are usually the most expensive. Foot brakes are lightweight, simple, and require no maintenance, but tend to perform poorly when compared to other types, are slower to activate and need a specific riding position. Drum brakes are also low maintenance, and better performing, particularly in wet conditions, but are heavier and complicated to disassemble.

Both electronic brakes and regenerative brakes add no extra weight at all, and require no maintenance, but again both types produce less effective braking performance, and can be prone to failure. Regenerative brakes can also fail to work when the battery is fully charged.

Razor E100 has Caliper brakes, and Zero 10X has Disc brakes.

When it comes to tires, there are two options, pneumatic or solid. Pneumatic tires are more comfortable, but can burst if punctured by glass, thorns or nails. Solid rubber tires however are far more durable (and puncture-proof) but will give a more bumpy ride.

Razor E100 has Pneumatic and Zero 10X has Pneumatic.

Suspension can also help achieve a smoother ride, and although not all electric scooters come with suspension, many models come with front or rear suspension, or both. Razor E100 has None, and Zero 10X has Both, making ${model_two} the comfier ride.

These days, plenty of electric scooters come with built-in lights. Options vary with lights available at both front and back, just front lights, or just rear lights. Razor E100 comes with none, and Zero 10X comes with both lights, so Zero 10X is suitable if driving after dark and safety are high priorities.

The final thing to keep in mind is the warranty. This protects you in the unlikely event of a fault with the electric scooter. Razor E100 comes with a 90 days warranty, and Zero 10X comes with a 6 months warranty.

And there you have it, a full round up of Razor E100 Vs. Zero 10X. Hopefully this comparison gives you an idea of the relative strengths and weaknesses of Razor E100 and Zero 10X, and helps demonstrate which electric scooter will best suit your needs. Whichever scooter you pick, remember to always be safe, and have fun!
