Riding Tips: How To Steer an E-Scooter
At Orange Kik, your safety as you enjoy the exhilarating vibes of e-scooter ride is our top priority. So, we've put together some essential steering tips for you to master the art of e-scooter riding!
- Steady Stance: Stand square on your e-scooter, with one foot in front of the other. The forward foot guides, while the rear foot controls
- Practice Smooth Turns: Head to an open space and practice turning smoothly. The more you practice, the more confident you'll become.
- Light on the Handles: Don't grip the handlebars too tight - maintain a firm yet relaxed grip and use your body weight to steer
- Look the Way: Always remember to look in the direction you want to go - this helps immensely with balance and coordination
- Leaning and Turning: At slow speeds, you can steer primarily by turning the handlebars. As you grow confident and ride faster, you will want to lean into your turns.
- Be Mindful of Pedestrians: Respect pedestrians and share the path. Slow down in crowded areas and always yield the right of way.
- Brake Gradually: Sudden stops can be risky. Brake gradually to maintain balance and avoid any unexpected surprises.
