E-Scooter maintenance tips 

See our post on maintenance here.

  • Inflate your tires often to the recommended pressure :
    • Less flat tires
    • More Range
    • Safer Rides
  • Tighten all the bolts or give us your E-Scooter for a Tune up every 500km or two months
    • Save on the long run
    • Better riding Experience
    • Safer rides
  • Avoid moisture at all costs. Extended use in the rain is not recommended.   Always dry off your E-Scooter after a wet ride.
  • Check for strange sounds and play where there shouldn’t be.  If you can identify the issue, address it before going for a ride or take it to a service provider to have it addressed.
  • Make sure your brakes are working well.  It is recommended that you have our brakes inspected for brake pad wear and possible replacement every 1,000km of riding.

E-Scooter Components

An E-Scooter is composed of the following components:

  • Motor
  • Battery
  • Harnesses
  • Display / Speedometer
  • Controller
  • Throttle
  • Suspension (some models)
  • Kick-stand

 

    E-Scooter usage

      • Select your speed mode according to your desired level of effort and speed.
      • E-Scooters are fast, so please respect other slower riders around.
      • Always push on startups to avoid too much stress to the electrical component and motor. 
      • Un-tuned E-Scooters wear down faster


    Battery Facts

    • Store it at 50-70% charge in a cool dry place.
    • Don’t expose batteries to extreme heat or cold.
    • Charge in between 20% to 80%, don’t discharge under 20%.  Do not charge if your battery is at or above 80% charged.
    • An E-Scooter Battery will last between 3 to 6 years depending on usage or 500 charge cycles.
    • Avoid leaving your battery charging overnight. Make sure to disconnect the charger from the battery and the wiring after loading it with electricity.

    Power / Range / Volt.

    Volt X Ah = Wh.

    Ex : 36Vx15Ah= 540Wh.

    1 miles every 20Wh (1.6km).

    This battery will give an average range of 27 miles / 44km.
