The Razor UB1 Seated Electric Scooter features rear-wheel drive for safer commuting as well as foldable handlebars, retractable foot pegs, and a retractable kickstand to make commuting with it much simpler. And you’re probably going to need to walk uphill with it because the customer reviews on that one aren’t so great. Still, check out our best electric scooter with seat list for more great options. Once you read this review, you will determine if this is the best electric scooter.

Why We Like It – Razor UB1 Electric Scooter

The Razor UB1 Electric Scooter includes a speedy 13.5 MPH top speed and a 10-mile range that makes it simple to go where you need to go quickly. The 200m pneumatic front tire also makes it easier for the scooter to grip the ground underneath it for a smoother, safer, more comfortable ride.

  • Rear-wheel drive for safer commuting
  • 220-pound rider limit
  • Foldable Handlebars
  • Bad Uphill Customer Reviews
  • Only 10 Mile Range


The Razor UB1 Electric Scooter has a top speed of about 13.5 MPH, which may be a little lower than other scooters in its class, such as the SKRT Electric Scooter, but can still get you where you need to go safely. If you want to go a little faster, the Razor E300 can reach a maximum speed of 15 mph. Where there should be some concern is in the scooter’s ability to go uphill. No specs indicate a percentage range for uphill traveling, and customer reviews on the matter, though limited, do skew on the negative side. If you want something different than a scooter but close to a skateboard, you should check out our Razor Ripstik review.


The 200mm pneumatic front tire is accompanied by an airless, flat-free back tire. These tires work in tandem to soften the terrain under them for a more comfortable ride. If you like bigger, chunkier tires, try the Razor Ecosmart Metro Electric Scooter. The Razor UB1 Electric Scooter is also a rear-wheel drive scooter which provides you with greater stability if the front tire is raised off the ground for some reason or if you need to brake suddenly. Do you want to cruise the city in a stylish scooter that can support a weight of up to 250lbs? See our SAY YEAH scooter review.

Battery Life

The battery life on the Razor UB1 Electric Scooter is about 40 minutes, or if you prefer, about 10 miles under optimal conditions. While 10 miles should surely be enough to reach your destination, it’s not quite as long as a lot of other scooters, such as the Hiboy S2. Unfortunately, no specs are given as to the charge time, but customer reviews have commented on how quickly the scooter charges. If a quick charge time is important, you can read our Glion Dolly foldable lightweight adult electric scooter review for an option that charges in about 3 hours. Additionally, the Segway ES1 can be charged in around 3.5 hours.


The Razor UB1’s frame is made from sturdy aluminum alloy. We wish it could have been made out of something like steel, but the fact that the scooter still maintains a 220-pound weight limit is a testament to just how strong this aluminum alloy really is. Couple this with a sturdy suspension, and you have a scooter that can take bumps and curbs without much issue.


The Razor UB1 Electric Scooter includes folding handlebars for portability and easy last-mile commuting. The design of the scooter is also quite eye-catching and very futuristic. It almost looks like an exercise bike you can ride outside. We’ll leave it up to you to decide whether this is positive or negative. Finally, the scooter only weighs 25 pounds, so it’s simple to carry around when you need to.

Razor UB1 Electric Scooter Wrap Up

While the frame and body of the Razor UB1 Electric Scooter may be aluminum, it’s still able to maintain a 220-pound rider weight limit. Considering some steel scooters can’t manage this, it’s pretty impressive. The 10-mile range is a bit of a letdown, but what’s more, is that there’s no charge time spec available. Let’s hope customer reviews are correct in saying the charge time is faster than average.
