Riding Tips for Maximizing Speed and Safety

Electric scooters are a fun and convenient way of getting around. However, safety comes before speed. Here are a few crucial tips to help you achieve both goals.

Have the Right Scooter

It doesn't have to be love at first sight, but your electric scooter should fit your riding style and needs. Consider range, top speed, suspension, and weight capacity. Top-tier scooters with excellent acceleration are essential for maximizing speed.

Inspect Your Scooter

Before hopping on your electric scooter:

  1. Take a few minutes to inspect it.
  2. Check its overall condition: brakes, lights, and tires.
  3. Ensure it is in good working condition to avoid unexpected risks when riding.

Proper Riding Posture

Your body positioning and riding posture are essential for maintaining control, comfort, and stability. 

Here's how to pose correctly.

  • Be upright, with your head up and your back straight. You want to avoid leaning too forward and slouching backward, as these will affect your control and balance.
  • Your feet should be parallel to each other and firmly on the scooter's deck. Your shoulders should be apart, and your toes should be pointed forward to provide stability.
  • Slightly bend your knees, which will help absorb vibrations and shocks from rough surfaces. It will provide a smooth ride and reduce strain on the joints.
  • Be relaxed when holding the handlebars. Don't grip them too tightly; otherwise, you'll strain to control the scooter.

Monitor Battery Level

If you aim to hit maximum speeds, ensure your battery is sufficiently charged. A low battery level will affect your scooter's performance and may lead to sudden power cuts.

Don't Forget Your Safety Gear

Put on your safety gear. It may not be the best dress code to impress, but it is handy. Never compromise speed for safety. Rock in your helmet, strap on your elbow and knee pads, and tighten your gloves.

Maintain a Safe Following Distance

Maintain a safe following distance from other motorists, especially large vehicles like trucks and cars. Doing so makes you a scooter psychic, able to predict their movements and react to sudden stops.

It's still on the same topic: master defensive riding. It will help you react quickly to unexpected actions and divert quickly from potential dangers. Always be alert when on the road. Expect other motorists, pedestrians, and potential obstacles, and be ready for them.

Check Weather Conditions

What is the weather like along the route you plan on using? Snow, rain, and slippery surfaces will significantly impact your scooter's braking ability and traction. Check the weather conditions and adjust your riding style and speed accordingly.

If possible, avoid riding in adverse weather conditions. 

Remember, with great scooter power comes great responsibility. You need skill and experience to ride at extremely high speeds. Don't push yourself beyond what you can handle. Be extra cautious when navigating through unfamiliar terrain and busy areas.

Even with all these in mind, relax, savor the moment, and enjoy your ride. Becoming an efficient scooter rider takes a bit of practice and time.
