Things I Love about this Pedal Go Kart
I just love this pedal go kart. I love the design, the color, and the durable materials that are used to construct them. I like that my children can play for hours and I am assured that their toy is safe and that the toy can withstand the punishment my boys can dish out.
High Impact Front Wheel with Flat Free Tire
When you put a child on a kids scooter or riding toy there is going to be the need for a high impact front wheel. Children are going to test everything and push their limits. That is how they learn about their world, and how they learn what they can, and what they cannot do.
The kids will try to ride over all sorts of debris like sticks, pieces of concrete, pine cones, clumps in the grass. The kids will also try to ride over ramps and things and make their riding toy jump over curbs.
The high impact flat-free tire of the Flash Rider 360 Razor is designed so that they can do all of those things, and their riding toy will still be suitable to ride when they are finished.
You will even be able to pass this toy down to another generation because of the strength of this high impact front wheel provides.
You and the kids will love the flat free tire. There is nothing more disappointing to a child, or a parent than the child going out to play on their riding toy and not being able to because of a flat tire. The child gets disappointed when this happens and the parent has to either listen to the child be upset, or they have to stop what they are doing and go repair the flat tire for the child. This flat free tire will stop this from happening so when the child goes out to get on this riding toy the toy will be ready to go.
The caster wheels also lower the caster tricycle's center of gravity making it perfect for fast cornering. Based on Razor's award-winning caster tricycle, this zippy version turns and drifts on dual inclined caster wheels, with an exciting Spark Bar feature resulting to the razor one of the best spark scooters in the playground today. The Razor 360 Flash Rider Spark replacement cartridges are sold separately.
Double Crown Fork
The double crown fork increases the strength of the welded steel framework that is holding the front tire in place. This is a crucial portion of the little vehicle because it provides the stability you need to steer the toy, and the strength the framework needs to remain intact. The double crown fork comes down on each side and firmly holds the front tire in position.
This pedal-powered vehicle looks like a giant tricycle. It is The steel frame designed to look like the tricycles we rode when we were toddlers. The tricycle’s welded steel frame, flat-free tire, and drift design create a stable toy for a child to ride on because it creates a solid base that is difficult to tip over.
This allows younger riders to be able to ride on the toy with the same confidence that older riders who have a better sense of balance have.
It makes it fun for all, and for me, it simply reminded me of the many happy hours that I spent riding my tricycle around my grandmother’s house and yard. I know that is sentimental but I feel that if a design is not broken then do not fix it, and the design of the tricycle is not broken.

The rubber handles cushion the end of the handlebars and that keeps your hands from aching when you have ridden a long time.
