Safety and Equipment
Riding an electric scooter can be dangerous if you don’t respect the speed and road you’re driving on. I can’t stress this too much.Wear the right safety equipment!The first place to start is with the helmet, which should be placed before you put it on. If you fall off an electric skateboard, the first thing to protect is your head. Brain injuries are no joke. A concussion can leave you in bed for weeks with nothing to do. Don’t take risks and protect your nods. Major studies have shown that.
Wearing a helmet can reduce your risk of serious head injury by up to 70 percent.
No explanation is needed.It is also recommended to use safety equipment on the knees, elbows and shoulders. It prevents severe rashes and helps you keep these joints in place, rather than dislocating them.Another very important safety tip is to wear the right shoes. Shoes help protect the feet and toes from the potential dangers of riding a scooter. I recommend wearing flat shoes (without cushions). Things like wrestling shoes or Vans are perfect. Flat shoes provide better board control than padded shoes. And please, don’t be barefoot or sandal-wearing. You just want to visit a plastic surgeon.
Posture and Balance
When stepping on an electric board, make sure your dominant foot is the first foot on the board. If you are a right-footed kicker, place your right foot on the board first and then in front of the board.
Your dominant foot (the front foot) will do most of the turning and control. Place your feet at a 70-degree Angle from the front. Many people like to position their front feet at a 90 degree Angle (called the stupid position), but I personally find this to be a stiffer/more awkward position, which also doesn’t allow me to control the board. You can place your other foot where you feel most comfortable, in the back/middle of the board.
Be sure to maintain a firm position and not tip the board to one side or the other. When riding an e-bike and turning it around, put most of your weight on your front foot. This will help maintain balance and prevent speed swings.
Take off and brake
Once you balance the board properly, you shouldn’t have too much trouble taking off.Select the speed or travel you wish to go at. If you’re riding a scooter for the first time, I recommend starting with the lowest speed mode and mastering it, then increasing the speed.
Push the throttle on the wireless remote slowly to begin accelerating the development board. After starting to increase your speed, hold steady to maintain some speed. Try to avoid obstacles and try to turn if you can. From this point on, all the exercises
When you are ready to stop riding, slowly pull back on the accelerator. This will trigger a rest. I don’t stress the need to pull it back in one go. If you do, you will end up flying because the board stops immediately. Disconnect slowly to gradually reduce the speed of the board.
This is a feature that your electric board may not be able to provide, but if it does, use it!Automatic cruising is just a button on your remote control to maintain a certain speed. Similar to the cruise feature on cars, you don’t have to keep the throttle down. All you have to worry about is driving in the right direction and avoiding obstacles. To disable it, simply press the automatic cruise button on the remote again. For long rides that can be tiring, it’s nice to have this feature. If you can find an electric board with this feature, I recommend you do so.
Practice, practice, practice
Like everything else in life, practice makes perfect. If this is your first time riding a bike, it may be a little challenging at first. Keep in mind the tips: maintain a firm position, place the weight on the front foot, wear proper safety equipment, and gradually apply the throttle and brake. Hang in there. Don’t be nervous. It may take patience, but I know you can get started quickly!
The scooter brought a new lifestyle and fun to my life that I had been lacking before. Of course, it beats walking. Make sure you learn from your mistakes and will soon be on the street stereotyped! Cheers! And happy glide!
