Razor Dirt Quad Four Wheel Electric ATV Review

The Dirt Quad four wheel Razor model is much more than just a ‘scooter’, it’s an actual, legitimate off road four wheeler. Similar to the Razor Dune Buggy, the Dirt Quad has the torque and power to truly handle off-road situations.  The Dune Buggy still does best on relatively flat surfaces, but the Dirt Quad can handle tough trails and big bumps with ease. Because of this versatility, this four wheeler is listed in both the Four Wheel Scooters category and the Dirt Bike & Motocross category.

Razor ATV

Snow Donuts!

Dirt Quad

In the snow

This miniature ATV is no toy – it has authentic all-terrain features such as ATV frame geometry, a high-torque gear ratio that provides excellent climbing opportunities, a terrain-tracing droop-travel rear suspension that delivers a smooth ride, shatter-resistant plastic fairings, and a powder-coated tubular steel frame that’s durable in all weather conditions.

 

As with many Razor products, the official age recommendation is 8+ years old. And again, many users report very good results with younger kids than 8 with proper training and supervision. As with all electric ride-ons, use your judgment, make sure they’re ready, and have them wear all safety gear.

Features of the Razor Dirt Quad

  • High-torque motor and gearing ratio provides excellent climbing capabilities
  • Adjustable riser handlebars and large padded seat for maximum comfort
  • Geared for dirt with large 13” pneumatic knobby tires for maximum power transfer
  • Hand-operated rear disc brake
  • Terrain tracing droop-travel rear suspension for a smooth ride
  • Shatter-resistant plastic fairings and powder-coated tubular frame for all-weather durability
  • Space-saving vertical storage capability
  • Up to 60 minutes of continuous battery power
  • Twist-grip throttle and battery indicator right on the handlebar
  • Awarded Sports Illustrated Kids 2006 “Gotta Have It” award and 2006 Family Choice Award
  • Rear carry handle and safety flag

Other Specifications

  • Product Weight: 89 lbs
  • Assembled Product Dimensions: 43″x 24″x 31.5″
  • 24V (2 12V) sealed lead-acid battery system
  • Rechargeable UL approved battery and charger included
  • Minor assembly required, tools included

Again, the Razor Dirt Quad is a real, legitimate off-road vehicle for those new to all terrain vehicles or who would just prefer the convenience of electric. It deserves the respect and care that any vehicle would require, but when used properly it will provide you with hours of fun, on or off the road.

Things that are great about it:
  • Legitimate off-road capability with high torque motor and large tires
  • MUCH quieter and cleaner to use than gas-powered models
  • Speed limits and size to match younger/smaller riders
  • Shatter-resistant plastic and tubular steel frame for durability
  • Strong battery life, up to an hour of continuous use
  • Authentic ATV geometry and suspension to handle the terrain
Things that could be better:
  • Kids may outgrow it
  • Like nearly all four wheel ATV’s, can tip if pushed beyond its limits

Like most four wheel ATVs, this model has a higher center of gravity than a low-riding go kart. They can tip over if pushed too far, but anything can be dangerous if abused. Read the operating instructions, operate it safely, and wear all appropriate safety gear and you should be fine.

Another advantage of an electric unit like this versus a larger gas-powered ATV is that with its 10 mph average top speed, it has enough power to be exciting but not so much to get too out of hand.

Razor Dirt Quad owners are very satisfied

“Happycamper10”, an Amazon-verified purchaser, found that this ATV exceeded expectations:

I purchased this dirt quad from Amazon at christmas for my 6 yr old daughter and didn’t know what to expect because I hadn’t seen this type of “Razor” before. It arrived on the day promised and upon receiving it, to my surprise, I was impressed. It is very sturdy, just her size and looks like the real thing. It came assembled (with the exception of the handle bar which took only about 10 min., I charged it for 24hrs as instructed, and it was ready to go. I had read previous reviews about the battery charge being ‘short’ but we haven’t had any problems with that. It has a battery strength indicator letting us know how much “juice” we have left (love that) and also is a smooth quiet ride. Although it is just right for my 6yr old it also has enough torque for my 15yr. old who is always jumping on for a quick spin. I would recommend this product to a friend.

Benjamin S., another Amazon-verified buyer, has a very detailed and positive review:

This is no plastic ride-on toy like Powerwheels or Pegro. It has a welded steel frame, rear suspension (with adjustable pre-tension), a rear cross-drilled disc brake (operated by hand), a 350W brushed DC motor with a pulse width modulated motor controller, a weatherproof power switch and charge port, and a low battery indicator on the throttle. This ride is metal, so it is heavy with dual 12V batteries. Two adults can easily lift it into a truck though.

The tires are pneumatic rubber tires – wheel barrow or hand truck variety (easy to replace). The wheels are steel and use precision ball bearings. Without the clatter of plastic tires all you hear is the humming motor and some chatter from the chain drive; what a relief from plastic on gravel :-). The steering has real tie-rod ends and adjustable alignment. The steering is linear but will make very sharp turns lock to lock.

The grip throttle is a real throttle… You can make the quad bike creep along at a fraction of a mile per hour, with any speed in between, or go wide open for 8-10mph of action. There is no reverse. My kid manages to pull it backwards if he gets it stuck somewhere but it is heavy and doesn’t free-wheel. My kid can nurse it along at walking speed if we ask him to.

The brake is operated with a left hand lever. My 36″ tall 32lb four year old struggles to reach the open position of the hand-brake, but manages. Another important distinction from typical ride-on toys: no engine braking. It gently coasts to a stop instead of shorting poles on the motor. Kids need to be educated on this right away.

The motor drives the solid rear axle via a covered chain. There is no differential, so tight turns on pavement feel a little strange. But we didn’t buy this to drive on pavement now did we? The motor has power to pull out of tight situations from a dead stop. Acceleration is smooth with the progressive throttle, unlike the on/off operation of a typical toy.

Battery life is outstanding… I have seen 1.5 hours ride time in 50-60F weather in grass and gravel. My child drives it over to his friends house while we walk with him; about .5 miles round trip through tall grass and gravel. The batteries are 2x 12V 7Ah sealed lead acid in series for 24VDC. A 30A fuse protects all wiring. An intelligent charger manages the batteries, and the bike should be charged after every use (like any SLA battery). Don’t let your kids run down the batteries; teach them to watch for the “low” indication.

The plastic body cover has a cushioned seat, and mud flaps. When my kid pounds the mud puddles with it he gets a little splatter on him; the fenders could be a little wider. Feet are well protected in foot-well molding with a grippy surface.

Good: High quality product. Very serviceable. Razor will sell you any part you need after warranty (unlike Power-Wheels). Kids learn how to use it very quickly. Powerful, more like a four-wheeler and less like a toy. It is well worth the cost (twice that of a Powerwheel four-wheeler). Having as much fun as a 49cc gas pocket-quad without the complexity or pollution – Priceless.

Bad: No reverse (would have been very easy to implement in the motor controller). Higher center of gravity, high speed, high traction and sharp turning radius combination can get it up on two wheels (kid learned to manage this). No lights.

Notes: Will be adding headlight and tail light, along with a DPDT switch for polarity reversing on the motor. Also adding a small tool-box for storage like the old toys had. Might modify brake lever for smaller-hands. Also adding a small trailer hitch for wagons and such.
