You must be familiar with e-scooters in order to ride a Whee. Give yourself a small kickstart with your dominant foot until you reach a speed of approx 3km/h and then push the right throttle to accelerate. To break, simply push the left throttle. To break even more, just put your foot on the rear wheel and gently activate the mechanical break.

Before starting your ride, make a security check of the scooter in order to verify any possible anomaly or broken parts. Always check the breaks afficiency before starting your ride.  Once the security check has been done, do a ride test.

When you ride, please always keep your feet on the board.
