Safety & Traffic: The most important thing about learning how to ride an electric scooter is to always wear a helmet. Long sleeve clothing or padded jackets are recommended. Although electric scooters are often used with commuters, we suggest using roads with less traffic and cycle lanes or safe riding lanes to avoid traffic during busy hours.
Conditions: We cannot recommend using an electric scooter in icy or dangerous conditions. Always ride using dry and safe roads to maximize your safety. If you are caught in tricky conditions, ride your e-scooter at low speed.
Balance: Whether you’re more comfortable right foot or left foot first, you choose! Try and remain balanced and comfortable when riding, whatever stance works best. Your weight should be centered on the e-scooter with both handles on the handlebar at all times.
Throttle Use: With your e-scooter make sure to use the throttle with ease and try and avoid breaking too aggressively. It’s healthier for the e-scooter to both accelerate and brake smoothly at all times. Breaking too viciously can comprise your balance and ultimately your safety.
