How do you stop when riding an Electric Scooter?
Different Electric Scooters have different braking methods. The majority of our Electric Scooters come with mechanical or electric brakes which you control via a lever on the handlebars. Some Electric Scooters in our range also have a manual foot brake which is engaged by pressing your foot on the rear fender similar to manual kick Scooters.
Another way of slowing down is to release the throttle. This stops the flow of power to the wheels and allows you to stop in a more controlled manner. This method also saves on brake wear and tear.
