Read Before Riding

  • Your board can lose power and brakes at any moment due to radio interference, a dead remote battery, unintentional release of the Engage Button, downhill overcharging of a full battery, or other factors. If this happens, the board turns into an unpowered skateboard, so only ride at speeds and on hills where you’d be comfortable without power and brakes.
  • Braking downhill on a full battery will cause the board to shut down since regenerative braking will overcharge the battery. To prevent this from happening, the remote will warn you by beeping and you’ll lose your braking power. Safely come to a stop before this happens, and ride on flats or uphill to drain the battery.
  • The throttle in expert and pro mode is extremely sensitive to make the board responsive and fun, but it also means fast or sudden inputs can easily cause you to fall off. Start by trying to move forward as slowly as possible in these modes.
  • Hills and high speed can be very dangerous because crashes can cause serious injuries, or worse. Be extra careful when pushing the limits of the board, even if you’re an experienced skater or rider.
  • Protect your board. While we have engineered the board to handle shock and vibration, riding off curbs, doing jumps/hops, throwing the front down to the pavement, and other high-impact events may damage internal electronic components over time and can be very dangerous on a board with so much power and speed.
  • Cars and other vehicles can kill you, so always be especially aware when riding around other vehicles. Ride defensively and assume other vehicles can’t see you. Remember that your board may lose power and brakes at any moment. Be aware of the laws that govern the use of your board on public roads, bike paths, sidewalks, or other places that you may ride.
  • Do not ride on wet or icy pavement. Any amount of water has the potential to damage the board, and water damage is not covered under warranty. Riding on wet or icy pavement is extremely dangerous due to the potential for losing traction and control.
  • Always wear a helmet. Other safety gear like gloves, pads, and long sleeves are highly recommended.

Double high five for reading to the end! We know safety messages aren’t the most exciting, but it’s really important to us that you ride safely. Remember, you’re an ambassador to this new form of transportation and the way you ride does reflect the Boosted community.
