Safety Reminder

  • The scooter is intended for riders older than 16 years. Riders with a lack of experience or knowledge should drive carefully. Children should not play with the scooter or parts of it nor should cleaning or maintenance be done by children. The use of the machine results in the transmission of vibrations throughout the driver’s body.
  • This electric scooter is a leisure device. But once they’re in a public area, they’ll be seen as vehicles, subjecting to any risks faced by vehicles. For your safety, please follow instructions in the manual and traffic laws and regulations set forth by the government and regulatory agencies.

  • At the same time, you should understand that risks cannot be entirely avoided as others may violate traffic regulations and drive incautiously, and you’re exposed to road accidents just as when you’re walking or biking. The faster the scooter is, the longer it takes to stop. On a smooth surface, the scooter may slip, lose balance, and even result in a fall. Thus it is crucial that you use caution, keep proper speed and distance, especially so when you’re unfamiliar with the place.

  • Respect pedestrians’ right of way. Try not to startle them while driving, especially children. When you ride from behind pedestrians, ring your bell to give them a heads-up and slow your scooter to pass from their left (applicable to countries where vehicles drive on the right). When you ride across pedestrians, keep to the right at a low speed. When you drive across pedestrians, keep the lowest speed or get off the vehicle.

  • Closely follow the safety instructions in the manual especially in China and countries that lack relevant laws and regulations regarding electric scooters. G-Force shall not be liable for any financial losses, physical injuries, accidents, legal disputes, and other interest conflicts resulting from actions that violate user instructions.

  • Riding at high speed or a speed that is not appropriate or adequate for the situation (bad weather conditions, bad surface conditions, or the like) may lead to a potential loss of stability or loss of control. To reduce any risk, you must follow all instructions in this user manual. Be careful when mounting and dismantling the product, it may fall and cause injury.

  • Do not lend your scooter to whoever knows not the operations. And when you do lend it to your friends, please take the responsibility to ensure he/she knows the operation and wear the safety gear.

  • Check the scooter before every use. When you note loosen parts, low battery alerts, flat tires, excessive wear, strange sounds, malfunctions, and other abnormal conditions, stop riding immediately and call for professional support.

  • When riding a scooter, you need to hold the handle with both hands to avoid shaking and falling down.
  • Always place the scooter on its stand on a flat and stable surface. The scooter must be placed with the stand against the slope to prevent it from tipping over. Never place the scooter with the front facing down the slope, as the stand may close and tip the machine. Once the scooter is on its stand, check its stability to avoid any risk of falling (by slip, wind, or slight jolt). Do not park the scooter in a busy area, but rather along a wall. If possible, always choose to park your scooter on flat ground

  • Do not touch the brake system, it could cause safety injuries.
  • To avoid inappropriate use, it is necessary to start coasting the scooter to activate the motor and the accelerator. When the scooter is stopped, the accelerator does not work.
  • Wear a helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads to avoid injury. Poor driving can lead to falls or serious accidents. Store the electric scooter indoors when not in use. Read the instruction manual and drive the electric scooter carefully. You should only operate the electric scooter after you have understood and applied all the safety rules. The scooter operator will be responsible for any damage or injury caused by failure to follow the instructions in the owner’s manual.

Daily Care and Maintenance

Storage
Notes: do not clean the scooter with alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, or other corrosive and volatile chemical solvents to prevent dire damage. Do not wash the scooter with a high-pressure water spray. During cleaning, make sure that the scooter’s turned off, the charging cable is unplugged, and the rubber flap is closed as water leakage may result in electric shock or other major problems. When the scooter’s not in use, keep it indoors where it is dry and cool. Do not put it outdoors for a long time. Excessive sunlight, overheating and overcooling accelerate tire aging and compromise the scooter and the battery pack’s lifespan.

Maintenance and removal of the battery

Do not remove the battery. Removing the battery is complicated and can alter the operation of the scooter: You can contact us if the product is still under warranty. Spare tires supplied with the product are to be mounted on the wheel by a professional repairer. Removing the wheels is complicated and incorrect assembly can lead to instability and malfunctions:

  1. Use original battery packs, use other models or brands that may cause safety issues;
  2. Do not touch the contacts. Do not dismantle or puncture the casing. Keep the contacts away from metal objects to prevent short circuits which may result in battery damage or even injuries and deaths;
  3. Use original power adapter to avoid potential damage or fire;
  4. Mishandling of used batteries may do tremendous harm to the environment. To protect the natural environment, please follow local regulations to properly dispose of used batteries.
  5. After every use, fully charge the battery to prolong its lifespan. Do not place the battery in an environment where the ambient temperature is higher than 50°C or lower than -20°C (e.g., do not leave the scooter or the battery pack in a car under direct sunlight for an extended time). Do not throw the battery pack into fire as it may lead to battery failure, battery overheating, and even another fire. If the scooter is expected to be left idle for more than 30 days, please fully charge the battery and place it in a dry and cool place. Keep in mind to recharge it every 60 days to protect the battery from potential damage which is beyond a limited warranty. Scooter shall be only be used with original batteries and charging of the scooter shall only be done by the original charging adapter supplied with the scooter (or any battery model or charging adapter model approved by the manufacturer as compatible). Always charge before exhausting the battery to prolong the battery’s lifespan. The battery pack performs better at normal temperature and is poor when it is below 0°C. For instance, when it is below -20°C, the riding range is only half or less at normal state. When the temperature rises, the riding range restores. For detailed information The external flexible cable of this transformer can not be replaced; if the cord is damaged, the transformer must be discarded and replaced by a new one.

Note: The damage caused by prolonged no charge is irreversible and is beyond a limited warranty. Once the damage is done, the battery can not be recharged (non-professionals are forbidden to dismantle the battery pack, as it may cause electric shock, short circuit, or even major safety accidents). In case of accident or breakdown: please contact an authorized repairer if the product is still under guarantee.
