If any of you screen-gawpers have bothered venturing beyond the front door recently, you’ll know that almost every kid in town owns a folding scooter. But why be like every kid in town when you can own a scooter that spits showers of sparks from its behind. Flame on!
Yes, boys and girls, the world’s best selling folding scooter just got a whole lot hotter because the Razor Spark Scooter utilises a detachable flint cartridge to light up your ride. Simply step on the rear bar and sparks will fly – literally. It’s just like the exhaust pipe on the Batmobile (if you squint hard, use your imagination and hum that ‘dunna nunna nunna nunna’ music).
Detachable flint cartridge
The Razor Spark’s ingenious cartridge boasts four flint bars and lasts for over 1.5 hours of continuous use, so you’ll out-spark everything in the park. And although you’d be hard pressed to stomp on it for that long, we’ll even throw in a spare.
It’s not all about pyrotechnics though. This swish set of wheels screams quality in every department. Built of aircraft grade aluminium with tough urethane wheels, a patented rear brake and springless shock system, the smooth-riding Razor Spark can withstand a serious pounding, and even the occasional run-in with boisterous big brothers dressed as Power Rangers.
Folds up quickly and weighs only 2.27kg
Best of all, because it folds up in a trice and weighs only 2.27kg, kids (or more realistically, mums or dads) can easily carry it when riding is not an option. Speaking of weight, the Razor Spark can support up to 50kg. So unless mum’s been to Iceland, even big kids (and puny dads) can make spectacles of themselves in the park.
Short of welding a rocket to the back of your kids’ scooter we can think of no better way to add a dash of flash to their two-wheeled outings. Now all you have to do is get ordering and lose some weight so you can have a go. Fzzztttttt!

Loved it, very great fun for kids but can be quite dangerous at times. SK, Handsworth - 16th September 2009
Just dont ride this into your local petrol station especially if there's any fuel spilliages!!! Booom! Ham, In A House, Nr Leeds - 1st September 2009
Bought this for my son and he hasn't been off it since he got it! Really fun to use, I used it a few days from the tube to work and I got some funny looks but as soon as I let off some sparks they all smiled! Really well built, packs into a tiny size in comparison to when its fully opened! All in all a great buy,
Warning to parents who want to use it, it is rather fast! The Abec 5 bearings mean it's smooth and really quick! You have been warned! Pete, Kent - 24th July 2009
