1. Wear protective gear appropriate for your trip and riding style
Before you ride, you need to be wearing the right gear.
First, you should always wear a helmet while riding, no matter how short the trip or how fast you ride
For higher speed rides, you'll need to add long-leg pants, gloves, long-sleeved shirts
You can also add more protective gear, including elbow and knee pads
Wear well-equipped gear to protect yourself from falling in unexpected situations while riding
2. Make sure you are familiar with your scooter and its controls
It is important to familiarize yourself with your scooter before riding it. Carefully read the scooter's manual, precautions, etc. to make sure you know the use and location of the accelerator, brakes, lights and horns.
It's best to practice in an open and safe area to get an idea of how the throttle feels and how the brakes work.
Test without power on. This gives you a good feel for balance, steering and braking feel.
Finally, one needs to understand how the folding mechanism on the scooter works. Make sure you know how to lock both in place. They have the potential to have additional safety features that must be engaged to prevent accidental folding while riding.
3. Check your e-scooter before hopping on
Every time you ride, check to make sure your scooter is functioning properly and safely.
A. Tires are in good condition and inflated to the correct pressure Folding mechanism locks in place
C. brake safety
D. The scooter has no strange noises, obvious damage, any changes or abnormalities
E. The battery is fully charged
F. Long-distance cycling kit (tire slime, pump, multitool)
G. cell phone in an emergency
4. Launch your scooter by kicking off from the ground
In order to ensure safety, the general scooter will not drive when the accelerator is pressed.
The scooter usually has to be raised to about 5 kmh for the motor to work
Before starting, you need to make sure the stand is up.
Then grab the handlebar with both hands, step on the pedal with one foot, kicking off from the ground with the other foot, press the accelerator in the process, make the motor work, and the scooter will drive
5. Accelerate using the throttle and position yourself for stability
Accelerate by depressing the throttle control. Keep your feet in a stable position and bend your knees to lower your center of gravity so you can keep your balance and avoid falling.
Use the handlebars for stability, but don't rely too heavily on them. Your legs should provide most of the balance.
Pro tip: When accelerating, put your weight on your back foot and use that foot to help your body lean forward. This will prevent you from pulling the handlebars.
It also helps prevent the front wheels from losing traction when accelerating if you are riding a dual motorcycle.
6. Shift your weight back and down when braking hard
For general brakes, you can press the brake while standing and step on the fender at the same time. A certain model of our electric scooter will be equipped with 3 kinds of brakes, so that when a certain brake is damaged, the other brakes can still reach the limit. dynamic effect
To brake hard, bend your knees and shift your weight back to your back leg—as if you were going to sit down. Most of the stopping power comes from the front brake, so be sure to use both.
Braking hard while cornering is more likely to cause a collision than braking hard in a straight line, so stay as upright as possible before performing an emergency stop.
7. Roll over Obstacles Perpendicularly
All roads have obstacles that can be dangerous to your ride|
To climb over an obstacle, practice shifting your weight to the rear wheel and push the front wheel over the obstacle by gently pulling on the handlebars.
8. Maximize Range with These Tips
How do you maximize your scooter's range? Follow these tips to use as little energy as possible:
Always kick your scooter. The motor uses the most power when it puts out maximum torque - that's when you start the scooter for the first time.
Slowly accelerate. Faster acceleration = more torque = more energy consumption.
Don't keep your top speed. Higher top speed = more wind resistance = more torque = more energy consumption.
Inflate the tire to the proper pressure. Make sure the tires are inflated to the recommended pressure, this will reduce rolling resistance. Lower pressure reduces range and increases the risk of a flat tire.
Ride in warm weather. You may not be able to control this, but the battery won't fully charge when it's colder. When running the battery below 50 F / 20 C, you will notice a significant (temporary) drop in capacity.
Regenerative braking won't give you any more range, maybe a 2 to 3 percent increase based on our analysis. However, it will extend the life of the brake pads.
9.After the Ride
High quality U-lock provides the best security for your scooter
While the safest option is to always carry a scooter with you, and there are often creative ways to do this, sometimes this is not possible.
Slide the U-lock over the secure locking and permanent points that cannot be easily removed with tools. Some examples are: through/around the frame, permanent handles, through a folding mechanism.
Lastly, if your scooter gets wet during a ride, give it a quick wipe (towel or paper towel) and make sure to park it inside so it's completely dry before your next ride. Cheap or inferior scooters that can't run in the rain because their batteries or motors will be damaged by water
Most of our scooters are IPX4 rated for water resistance and can be ridden in the rain
