The classic 1970’s Big Wheel is back with the introduction of the Razor Rip-Rider 360 Drifting Ride-on. This fun loving toy was voted Best Toy of 2009 by Parent magazine and it is easy to see why. Riders ages 5 and up will love how this three-wheeler drifts and coasts downhill and how easy it is to pedal. Unlike its predecessor, this three-wheeler has a steel frame as opposed to plastic frame providing a sturdy and smooth ride.
One thing parents will love about this vehicle is the high weight limit of 160 pounds. You will be able to accommodate multiple children per family as well as varying ages with this vehicle. Parents will also love the fact that Razor products are durable and very well made. Razor has become synonymous with quality scooters and now they smash the ride-on competition with the Razor Rip-Rider 360.
What makes this product so much better than the Big Wheel is the use of Razor’s castor wheel driven design. Castor wheels are designed to operate effortlessly on flat surfaces allowing for maximum speed and control. These castor wheels are mounted to the solid steel frame of the Rip-Rider 360 and allow the driver to accelerate and turn without pushing. The result is a snowboard- like carving experience that allows for a fast and exhilarating ride for kids both young and old alike.
There is a reason why they call it the Rip-Rider 360. This toy uses the RipStik technology that has made Razor famous with scooters and skateboards. It allows for a total 360 degree turn when skidding to a stop. The castor wheels pivot to minimize wearing to the wheel unlike the vintage Big Wheel model. This reduces the need for wheel replacement and is a whole lot more fun!
Riders of the Razor Rip-Rider 360 will definitely want to purchase a bike helmet. It’s always a good idea to use one even if you are riding in the family driveway. Parents may also consider purchasing elbow and knee pads to reduce the chance scrapes during a tumble. Razor has a number of high quality, low cost helmets and biking accessories in various colors and styles.
If you are looking for a dependable and well made three-wheeler with lots of bells and whistles, the Razor Rip-Rider 360 Drifting Ride-on is the perfect gift. Kids will love the ease of use and 360 degree turns, while parents will appreciate the dependability and quality of a Razor product. The pricing for the Rip-Rider 360 is also right compared to other products in the same category. Since this product has been out for over a year, you will also find that customer reviews for this product are very favorable. It is just another reason why the Razor Rip-Rider 360 is a wonderful holiday gift.
