Hopefully, when using this comprehensive guide to your Decent E-scooter we can guide you into the world of micro-mobility. You should find all the necessary information needed to run your Decent X7/One/One Max scooter, whilst, we will also guide you through the little, idiosyncratic features that may have gone unnoticed at first glance.
What do I need to know?
- Out of the box you should find, a pair of handle bars, Decent X7/One/One Max E-scooter, 5Ah battery, 5mm Hex key, charger, power cable and a manual.
- Please charge the battery up to full charge before using the scooter for the first time.
- Pump the tyres up with the correct PSI.
- Ensure that you have all the correct safety clothing for riding an electric scooter.
- Please keep the box for at least 28 days in the event an issue may arise.
- Do not ride with foot on rear fender, this acts as the third braking option on the Decent X7.
Out of the Box - What should I find?
The most noticeable item that you should find in the box first of all is the scooter. Along with the obvious content (the scooter), you should find a 5Ah battery, charger, power cable, 5mm hex key and handle bars.
Thankfully, this model is extremely easy to assemble, only requiring the handlebars to be fitted onto the scooter. Each handle bar should have either the letter 'L' or 'R' printed on them which should indicate their orientation. With these, you can screw them straight onto the scooter without any further assembly.
Your scooter should now look a little more scooter'ish.
Now my scooter scooter is all put together, can I take it out for a run?
Understandably, you may be awfully eager to take your scooter out on its first ride, however, we would highly recommend for the battery to be fully charged before your first journey. From the factory, these Li-ion batteries are initially charged with a 'storage charge' which is, in essence, the safest voltage for long period storage. This type of charge, however, isn't particularity useful if you are intending to ride the scooter so you'll need to place the battery on charge and wait for the LED on the charger to turn green. This may take up to 2 and 1/2 hours, however, it is often much quicker.
Whilst your battery is on charge, it may be worth taking a look at the tyres on your scooter; more specifically, the tyre pressure.
Alright, my scooter is on charge, what's this about tyre pressure?
Depending on the load that this scooter will be carrying, your ride style and the weather, the ideal tyre pressure may be very different from the factory inflated pressure.
Generally, we would usually recommend 35 PSI for the tyres on your Decent electric scooter as this is the highest that they are rated for, however, this value won't be universally suitable. A slightly deflated tyre may offer greater grip when riding on loose surfaces, however, it may also lead to a lower attainable mileage.
For the average user, we will recommend pumping your tyre to 35 PSI, however, if you would like to make a more informed decision, please do read the article linked here.
A little bit about safety...
Of course, just like any other vehicle, there are certainly precautions that have to be made before riding your e-scooter. Helmets, knee-pads and elbow-pads are all pieces of equipment we would highly recommend to be worn, whilst, there are some other more obvious precautions. We would advise against riding the scooter whilst, intoxicated, on medication, when pregnant or when it is raining. When riding your e-scooter, please do consider all possibilities before embarking on your journey.
Now with this all sorted and my battery charged, am I ready to ride my e-scooter?
Yes! With your tyres pumped up, your battery charged and safety clothing worn, you should be more than ready to hop onto your scooter for the first time!
But I have more questions!!!
