We would like to empower scooterists to make the correct safety decisions before embarking on their journeys. Whether this journey is for practical reasons or just for the enjoyment of being on an electric scooter, there will always be safety considerations to be made.
What is suitable clothing for a journey with my scooter?
A helmet is a must whenever riding a vehicle such as an e-scooter. Scooterists face similar dangers to that of cyclists, and whilst, very few incidents with electric scooters involve any form of injury, it certainly can pay-off to be more cautious than necessary.
With regards to less obvious forms of safety equipment; body protection such as knee pads and elbow pads are also a worthy investment to protect you from all sorts of cuts and abrasions.
Other than equipment, how else can I keep safe when riding my electric scooter?
Common sense really does go far when riding your electric scooter safely. When using your scooter for the first few times, we would recommend for you to steadily increase the speed until you feel completely comfortable with the limitations of your scooter.
Thankfully, the Unagi Model One has a wide variety of options available when it comes to adjusting the speed of the scooter. When getting used to the scooter, it really is worth keeping slow until you are starting to get used to the capabilities of your scooter. As the Unagi is powered by two motors, there are options to have both motors engaged or to only have the rear. Both settings will give the scooter a very different feel so some experimentation to see which is most suitable for yourself would be very beneficial. If you would like further information regarding this setting, please see here.
Choosing the best weather to ride your scooter in is also vital. We wouldn't generally recommend for these scooters to be ridden in wet weather conditions, however, this can often be unavoidable. If you are caught in a sudden downpour, please slow down and become far more aware of your surroundings.
