SAFE RIDING TECHNIQUES
When operating, accelerating, decelerating, or braking, please keep your weight in line with the board direction in which you are going and in accordance with the functions you are performing in order to increase your stability and avoid possible product damage.
- If braking or decelerating forward, you should lean and/or shift weight slightly backward.
- If starting or accelerating forward, you should lean and/or shift weight slightly forward.
- When atop the board, stand with feet apart so that your weight is more evenly distributed over the board. This will improve your stability.
- Wearing appropriate clothing and safety gear including knee pads, elbow pads, wrist braces, and an ASTM F1492 approved helmet is recommended for ALL riders of ALL ages at ALL times.
- Avoid wearing anything that can drape over or get caught into/under the wheels.
- Wear flat shoes to maintain flexibility and stability.
- Ensure the vehicle speed is safe to yourself and others, and be ready to stop at any time.
- When riding near others, keep a safe distance to avoid collisions.
- Be alert to your surroundings in order to ensure a safe ride. Your eyes are your best tool to safely avoid obstacles and slippery surfaces.
- Stay in open spaces and flat areas. Avoid steeps slopes or high traffic areas until you’re familiar with riding.
Periodically inspect the wheels for excessive wear.
Check for cracks or broken connections. Although broken decks are rare, it is possible for an aggressive rider to run into a curb or object and wreck, crack or break a deck. Get in the habit of inspecting your product on a regular basis.
Before every ride, check all parts, such as nuts, bolts, fasteners, etc., to ensure they are secure and assembled correctly. There should not be any unusual rattles or sounds from loose parts or broken components. If the product is damaged, do not ride. Reference “Safety Warnings” on pages 1 and 2 of this manual.
Always wear proper protective gear, such as an approved safety helmet. Elbow pads, kneepads and wrist guards are recommended. Always wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles) and keep shoelaces tied and out of the way of the wheels, motor and drive system. NEVER RIDE BAREFOOTED OR IN SANDALS.
