There are risks to driving any vehicle. This e-scooter is no exception. As with a bicycle, find a safe area to practice in and, if you can, have somebody help you with your first few rides. It is important that you become familiar with the controls of the e-scooter before riding in an environment where there is a risk of collision. Practice in a quiet area away from other vehicles and hazards. Please ensure this manual is read and understood before riding.
1. Check the brakes, wheels and tyres before every ride. Never ride with damaged brakes. You can slow down the e-scooter by using the brake lever on the left side of the handlebar. The brake lever activates both the drum front brake and the electric brake of the rear wheel at the same time. Squeeze the brake lever gently to effectively use the brake in a stable way, and be aware that braking distances may be extended in wet weather.
2. Before each ride, ensure the steering system is working and that the latch for the folding mechanism is in place correctly, with the handle firmly tightened.
3. Wear flat closed shoes when using the e-scooter. Always keep both feet on the e-scooter while riding, unless you are just starting to accelerate or about to stop. Wait until you have come to a complete standstill before you get off the e-scooter.
4. We recommend wearing protective equipment (e.g. Helmet, kneepads, etc.) when riding the e-scooter.
5. Hold the handlebar firmly with both hands at all times when riding.
6. It is your responsibility to ride the e-scooter using good judgement in order to reduce the risk of injury. Do not use the e-scooter when under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication that may impair your judgement. Use common sense to detect and avoid hazards that pose a risk to you, others and others’ property while you use the e-scooter.
7. The e-scooter is designed for outdoor use on smooth, stable surfaces. You should ride appropriately for the conditions you are riding in, and anticipate potential hazards at all times (e.g. light, weather, other traffic participants, etc.)
8. Both tyres must be in contact with the ground at all times in order to be able to provide adequate grip to ride safely (conditions permitting).
9. If your e-scooter breaks or shows wear, we strongly recommend having a service carried out. Although this e-scooter is IP65 rated, you should exercise caution when riding in wet conditions and dry the e-scooter after use. Do not use the e-scooter in temperatures below -5°C. This can have a negative effect on the performance and life of the battery and the motor.
• Always keep the e-scooter away from humidity in excess of 90%.
• Do not attempt to turn off the e-scooter while you are riding.
• Take extra caution when using the e-scooter in the dark.
• Avoid overcrowded areas.
• Notify your presence when approaching a pedestrian or cyclist when you are not seen or heard. This e-scooter is fitted with a bell for this purpose.
• Do not change the use of this e-scooter from its intended use.
• This vehicle is not intended for acrobatic use.
• Regularly check the tightness of the various bolted elements, in particular the wheel axles, the folding system, the steering system and the brake system.
• Eliminate any sharp edges caused by use.
• The kickstand must be folded up before stepping onto the scooter. Never step on the mudguards.
Any other relevant information may be added, at the manufacturer’s discretion.
Caution, the brake may become hot in use. Do not touch after use.
The e-scooter must only be repaired with original spare parts from an authorised supplier or shop and by a licensed mechanic. The opening, disassembly or modification of the e-scooter with non-licensed or nonoriginal parts or by a non-licensed person will lead to the warranty becoming invalid.
As with any mechanical component, a vehicle is subject to high stresses and wear. The various materials and components may react differently to wear or fatigue. If the expected service life for a component has been exceeded, it may break suddenly, therefore risking causing injuries to the user.
Cracks, scratches and discolouration in the areas subject to high stresses indicate that the component has exceeded its service life and should be replaced.
