RazEr rEVolution

RazEr rEVolution at EVER Monaco 2011

It’s time to stop playing around. Razor scooter conversions are nice and compact, but that characteristic is also their weakness – there’s just not enough space to put anything. Now that the miniature electric hub motors have been proven in both RazEr (like three times) and the even more compact ‘Blades, it’s time to go big. RazEr rEVolution is based on a wholly custom frame that fits a 2 inch wide, 70mm stator hub motor that is parallel wound for even more current capacity. The battery energy increases 50% over RazEr, mostly due to the increase from 30 volts to 40 volts nominal.

Oh, and it still folds.

Here’s RrEV’s build thread.
