At INMOTION, we value our customers' safety above all else. Riding smart and staying safe is the best way to make sure you have a great time with your favourite INMOTION products. Just like when riding a electric unicycle, electric scooter or skateboard , falling can cause serious injury if you haven't taken proper precautions. We've put together these safe-riding tips to help you avoid injury and stay safe, so please do read them and ensure you understand before riding.
Children under 8 should ride with adult supervision at all times. INMOTION products each have a recommended rider age - these have been set by our experts based on the skill level and size needed to operate the ride safely. Products should not be ridden by anyone under the recommended age limit.
When riding always wear an EU-approved safety standard helmet. We also strongly recommend additional safety wear such as elbow and kneepads for additional protection. Wear athletic shoes, lace-up shoes with rubber soles, and make sure to keep shoelaces out of the way of wheels. Don't ever ride barefoot or in sandals. When riding in the dark, we'd recommend hi-viz clothing.
Read the owner's manual that came with your new ride and ensure you understand how to operate and maintain your ride safely. Do keep the manual for future reference.Before each ride, check and secure all fasteners and check wheels for wear and tear. Replace worn or broken parts immediately. Keep your product clean by wiping with a damp cloth to remove dirt and dust.
Before riding, make yourself aware of local riding laws which detail where you may use your ride. For example, it is not currently legal to ride an electric ride-on or electric scooter in public spaces in the UK (thanks to the Highways Act of 1835, section 72).
