KUSA — Remember back in 2001, when Razor scooters were like … the thing?
Well, now that it’s 2018 and for good or bad, electric scooters have dominated a large part of the American consciousness, Razor is back … and bringing it’s alternate transportation to Denver.
According to a news release from Razor, their dockless scooters launched in the Mile High City this week. They’re somewhat late to the party: Lime, Bird and Lyft scooters are already here.
Nevertheless, Razor touted its scooter expertise in a news release, saying their iterations have “been custom designed from the ground up to provide a better shared scooter ride. The scooters have cushy front air tires, a wide deck big enough for two side-by-side, a UL-compliant lithium ion battery, and a rigid steel frame.”
For what it’s worth, in the news release, Razor didn’t go as far as to use the hipster refrain that it was into e-scooters before they were cool, but did casually mention the first Razor e-scooter came out in 2003.
So there you go.
There are now more e-scooters in Denver. Remember to wear a helmet, don't drink and scoot, and be smart.
