Safety First

Before You Ride

Thanks to the quality construction of Micro scooters, parents can have confidence that they will provide years of healthy exercise, transport. and fun. Safety precautions are a family affair - please take the time to share these suggestions and precautions before riding with your family. Small children should always be supervised when riding.

Please note the following precautions:

  1. Please make it a habit to check your scooter before you ride to make sure it is in proper working condition, with all screws, bolts and clamps secure. Please contact us with any quesions or concerns.  Customer Service tel 616 242 0044 or toll free 888.236.5657 or email us at info@kickboardusa.com 
  2. We recommend that riders wear an approved bike helmet, knee and elbow pads, and shoes. Like cycling, skateboarding and in-line skating, riding a KICKBOARD SCOOTER can be dangerous even under the best of circumstances. Serious injury or even death is possible.
  3.  Always obey traffic signals, stay clear of pedestrians and motorized vehicles.
  4. Wet weather impairs traction, braking and visibility. The risk of accidents and injury is dramatically increased in wet conditions.
  5. Small children should always be supervised when riding. 
  6. The brake gets hot after use.  Avoid prolonged braking and do not touch after braking. 
  7. Riding at dusk, or dark, or in poor visibility is dangerous and can result in serious injury and death.

Learning How to Ride

The beauty of scooters and kickboards is that they’re simple and fun for people of all ages to ride. Just climb aboard, push off with your foot, and roll.  The 2-wheeled scooters have a TBar that steers like a bicycle - you can turn it right or left, wherever you want to go. The 3-wheeled kickboard scooters have a lean-to-steer mechanism that works a little differently. Instead of turning at right angles, the wheels pivot as the rider leans left and right, creating a sensation like 'surfing' the sidewalk. While new riders typically start out moving in straight lines, they pick up the lean-to-steer, quickly and intuitively. The lean-to-steer is fun, and it’s also a great way for kids to build the balance and coordination skills that are used in other sports later in life - like skiing, surfing, and snowboarding, to name a few.
