The Ninebot Max is a large, heavy scooter, but it’s also versatile and packed with features. It’s got 10-inch wheels with pneumatic tires, an anti-lock braking system, and both front and rear shock absorbers. The 350-watt motor can reach speeds up to 18.6 miles per hour, traveling over 40 miles on a full charge.

As with most electric scooters, a max weight of 220 pounds (and a max height of six feet six inches) is recommended. The battery should charge in about six hours, which is relatively fast, and features like Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, and three different ride modes make for added usability.

User reviews say this one’s ideal for a “short, relatively flat commute.”

Pros

  • Front and rear shock absorbers

  • 6-hour battery charge time

  • Anti-lock braking system

Cons

  • None that we could find

Young riders love the Razor E100, and parents seem to love that it’s a low-risk, entry-level investment they don’t have to worry much about. It’s got an alloy steel frame, polyurethane wheels, and a 100-watt, single-speed motor that tops off at 10 miles per hour. Its 24-volt battery can last up to 40 minutes, up to a max range of about six and a half miles, and it has a simple front hand brake.

It’s made for kids eight and up, with a max payload of 120 pounds, and some parents suggest springing for the two-year warranty plan where available. But its satisfaction rating on Amazon is very high.

Pros

  • Up to 40 minutes of ride time

  • Range of about 6.5 miles

Cons

  • Max payload of 120 pounds

The E22 is a highly portable, lightweight option that you can fold up and carry onto the bus or subway with you as part of a longer commute. It’s foldable, with nine-inch dual-density tires, a dual suspension system, double braking, and a capacity of up to 220 pounds. The 300-watt motor has a top speed of 12.4 miles per hour, offering distances up to 13.7 miles or so, and you can even opt for a battery upgrade that’s meant to double that range.

It offers three power modes, a one-year limited warranty, cruise control, an anti-theft lock, and even a bell for added safety. Notably, it’s also got a headlight (with a range of over 44 feet) and an automatic taillight.

Pros

  • Optional battery upgrade for increased range

  • Dual suspension system and double braking

  • Anti-theft lock and headlight

Cons

  • None that we could find

If you’re looking to have a little fun with brief, recreational off-road rides, then the Razor RX200 is the heavy-duty option you’re looking for. It’s got eight-inch off-road tires, an alloy steel frame, a hand-operated rear brake, a twist-grip throttle, and comes with a 90-day warranty (with some extension plans available).

It takes 12 hours to charge, tops off at 12 miles per hour on rough terrain, and delivers a max ride time of about 40 minutes. It’s not adjustable, however, and offers just a single speed, so some users have said that their kids “are scared of it.” It’s best for teenagers and adults under 154 pounds.

Pros

  • 12 miles per hour on rugged terrain

  • 8-inch off-road tires

  • Twist-grip throttle

Cons

  • Max payload of 154 pounds
