Let’s Talk About Safety…

SAFETY IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO US WHEN RIDING YOUR VIRO RIDES SCOOTER…SO WE’VE PULLED TOGETHER THESE HANDY STEPS TO FOLLOW BEFORE HEADING OUT ‘N ABOUT.

For the scooter

Words of wisdom

BEFORE USING YOUR SCOOTER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO FOLLOW THE USER MANUAL TO HELP ENSURE IT IS SETUP CORRECTLY AND SAFE FOR USE.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BATTERY MUST ALSO BE CHARGED FULLY BEFORE FIRST USE. THIS WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY 10 HOURS.

Where can I ride?

Private Land

AS LONG AS YOU HAVE PERMISSION, YOU CAN RIDE ANYWHERE YOU WANT ON PRIVATE LAND. THIS COULD BE YOUR OWN GARDEN, OR YOUR FRIENDS.

Where can't I ride?

Roads

IT IS UNSAFE TO RIDE AN ELECTRIC SCOOTER ON ANY ROAD AND THEREFORE ILLEGAL IN THE UK.

Crowded Areas

YOU SHOULD AVOID RIDING IN AREAS THAT ARE TOO BUSY OR CROWDED TO PREVENT COLLISIONS AND ACCIDENTS.

Public Footpaths

IT IS ILLEGAL TO RIDE SCOOTERS ON PUBLIC FOOTPATHS.

For the rider

Words of wisdom

VIRO RIDES SCOOTERS ARE SUITABLE FOR USERS AGED 8 YEARS AND UPWARDS. THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT OF EACH RIDER SHOULD NOT EXCEED 120LBS (54KG) – THIS INCLUDES BACKPACKS AND OTHER ITEMS THAT MIGHT BE CARRIED WHILE ON THE SCOOTER.

EXCEEDING THE WEIGHT LIMIT COULD INJURE THE RIDER AND DAMAGE THE UNIT. PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER, THAT THE RIDER WEIGHT ALONE DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN A PERSON’S SIZE IS APPROPRIATE TO FIT OR MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE UNIT.

KEEP THIS PRODUCT AWAY FROM SMALL CHILDREN AND REMEMBER THAT THIS PRODUCT IS ONLY INTENDED FOR USE BY PERSONS WHO ARE, AT MINIMUM, COMFORTABLE AND COMPETENT WHILE OPERATING IT.

Essential equipment

WHATEVER SKILL LEVEL YOU’RE AT, IT’S IMPORTANT TO WEAR PROTECTIVE SAFETY EQUIPMENT WHILE USE YOUR VIRO RIDES SCOOTER TO AVOID ANY INJURIES. THESE INCLUDE:

Helmet

ENSURE IT IS THE CORRECT SIZE AND FIT FOR THE WEARER. STRAPS SHOULD BE PULLED TIGHT TO FIT SNUGGLY UNDER THE RIDER'S CHIN TO PREVENT IT FROM SLIPPING OR FALLING OFF.

Elbow Pads

THESE SHOULD BE PROPERLY FITTED TO PREVENT ANY UNNECESSARY STRAPS FROM HANGING DOWN OR GETTING IN THE WAY.

Knee Pads

THESE WILL HELP KEEP YOU PROTECTED IN THE EVENT OF A FALL.
