Safety Tips | Electric Skateboards

Before you start riding electric skateboards, please be smart, cautious and learn the following safety considerations:

Always Wear A Helmet

You may feel confident riding your electric skateboard but it is always recommend to wear a helmet. It only takes one time for you to injure yourself and if you are without your helmet it can end up really bad. We always suggest that even if you don’t need it – wear your helmet. Your head is an important part of your body and you do not want to hurt or injure it. Be cautious and wear your helmet!

Your Board Can Lose Power And Electric Brakes

There are various reasons that can cause your electric skateboard to lose power in its electric brakes, such as a wireless radio interference, loose connection, dead controller batteries, or dropping the controller. If any of these scenarios occur, your board will turn into a regular non-motorized skateboard. Therefore, you must learn how to stop the board effectively without power and brakes to prevent yourself from injuries.

Throttle of the Remote Controller is Sensitive

The remote controller of the board has a very delicate throttle and even a slight pull can result in a jolt of power on your board. Make sure to gradually ease into the throttle to gain a balance and prevent yourself from falling off the skateboard. Electric skateboards are very powerful, but once you learn how to use their controls effectively, you’ll start enjoying their responsiveness. Please ride with caution and prevent yourself from injuries.

Riding Uphill And Reaching High Speeds

Without focus and caution, riding the board uphill and reaching its highest speed can be very dangerous. Always plan ahead and know what to do in-case of an emergency. Pay attention to the floor underneath, and try to steer clear of cracks and potholes.

Vehicles And People Around You Can Get Hurt

There’s no need to rush as your life and other lives around you are worth more than reaching a few minutes early. If you feel that a particular area is unsafe, it is recommended to pick up your skateboard, wait and/or continue riding in a safer area. Assume that vehicles around you do not recognize you at all, they do not know you are there and stop. Let them take a turn and then continue riding. Be safe and cautious.
