SAFETY

READ BEFORE RIDING

Electric skateboards are powerful vehicles and require skill and knowledge to be enjoy safely.

Personal Safety:

  • Be aware of the laws that govern the use of electric board on public roads, bike paths, sidewalks, or other places that you may ride.

  • Braking downhill on a full battery will cause board shutdown and temporary loss of braking power since regenerative braking will overcharge the battery. is recommended to start riding uphill or on flats to drain the battery before attempting to go downhill. To safely come to a stop you can carve or use foot braking.

  • Apply brakes intermittently and avoid applying long braking drags.

  • The board can lose power and brakes at any moment due to radio interference between your remote and the board, a dead remote battery, unintentional engaging the brakes, braking when the battery is fully charged, and other factors. Only ride the board at speeds and on hills where you’d be comfortable stopping without power brakes.

  • Always assume you are invisible to vehicles and pedestrians, ride defensively. Cars and other vehicles can kill you, so always be aware of your surroundings when riding in the presence of other vehicles. Ride defensively and assume other vehicles can’t see you. Remember that your board may lose power and brakes at any moment.

  • Never ride at night without lights. 

  • Never leave your board in a hot vehicle, the heat will have adverse effects on the batteries and electronics.

  • Always wear a helmet to avoid serious head injuries, also protective equipment like gloves and pads are highly recommended.

  • Ride only as fast as you can stop safely.  No machine is guaranteed against malfunction.

  • Never ride mentally fatigued, learn to fall safely and to foot brake.

  • Avoid Water: Do not ride on wet or icy pavement. Any amount of water has the potential to damage the board’s electronics and water damage is not covered under warranty. Riding on wet or icy pavement is extremely dangerous due to the potential for losing traction and control.

  • Never ride in water, on wet surfaces, in the rain, on slippery or uneven surfaces, up steep hills, in traffic, and over cracks, train tracks, gravel, rocks, or any obstacles that could cause a loss of traction. Avoid night riding, areas with poor visibility, and narrow spaces.
