How can we prevent injuries while riding?

  • You need to warm up before riding

Many riders are eager to start riding their scooters and neglect the warm-up session, which is not the right way to ride. Before riding, we should do some simple stretching and stretching exercises to get our bodies moving so that we don't get too stiff and fall.

  • Wear a helmet when riding

Whether on the Internet or in real life, we can see many cases of "safety accidents because of not wearing a helmet". Just like the traffic and accident mentioned at the beginning of this article, although the facts are very cruel, we must learn from it and avoid the same accident from happening to ourselves. Therefore, we must wear helmets when we go out to ride electric scooters, because it is directly related to our life safety. In addition, it is also a prerequisite to ensure that we ride safely by checking our equipment, brakes, lighting, tire pressure, etc. before riding.

  • Maintaining a safe riding speed

Riding an electric scooter is about maintaining a safe speed. Avoid sudden acceleration or sudden deceleration, which will cause great damage to the battery and engine. Be aware that the speed of your ride does not determine how aggressively you ride, it will only cause damage to your e-scooter and increase your risk of riding injuries.

It is recommended that beginners find a suitable speed for themselves during the riding process and then slowly increase the riding speed. This step-by-step riding can not only ensure that they can enjoy riding, but also make their riding safer.

  • Determine your riding route

Planning ahead for riding routes can make our rides safer. If you usually ride an electric scooter for daily commuting, then you should be very familiar with the daily riding route. Trying to choose a flat and smooth route can save us a lot of commuting time. If you want to experience the thrill of riding an electric scooter over mountains and mountains, then you should plan your riding route in advance. After all, knowing the riding route in advance can give us more confidence in riding in an unfamiliar environment and make our riding a little more security.

  • Don't over ride

The batteries of electric scooters have certain specifications, which means that the capacity of the battery is limited, so our riding distance is also limited. Riding within the mileage of an electric scooter is another important condition to ensure safe riding. After all, when the battery of the electric scooter is exhausted, we have no way to continue riding. If it encounters rain, darkness or terrain unfamiliar situations will undoubtedly make our riding difficult.

Riding an electric scooter is a fun and physical activity, but bumps and bruises are inevitable on the road. All we can do is to minimize the risks and enjoy each ride with all our heart and soul.
