Beginners Guide: How to Ride MUKUTA Better

One primary reason why electric scooters outperform other forms of transportation is the simple learning curve for beginners. In fact, most new riders can get into the flow within a few hours. However, there are a few tips and tricks that experienced e-scooter riders pick up along the way.

If you’re an electric scooter beginner, you can ride safely from the start by following these electric scooter riding tips. Doing so will reduce your chances of falling and have you cruising the streets with ease.

Below, we'll break down how to ride an electric scooter step-by-step.

#1 Wear Your Helmet
Before we dive into any riding techniques, it's important to hammer home the necessity of wearing a helmet. Many new riders think they can forgo this essential piece of riding equipment. In fact, over 90% of riders don't wear a helmet at all , according to some user reports.

#2 Look up the Laws in Your City
In addition to knowing how your electric scooter works, you may want to brush up on the e-scooter laws in your city. Like most vehicles, electric scooters are legally required to stop at stop signs and traffic lights, yield to pedestrians, and stick to the speed limit of the street they're riding on.

You should also look up your city’s specific laws in regards to the following questions:

Do you need a driver's license to ride an electric scooter?
Can you ride on sidewalks?
Can you ride in bike lanes?
What is the e-scooter speed limit?
Knowing the riding rules in your city can help you ride without the risk of incurring a ticket. It will also help you assimilate with the flow of traffic safely.

#3 Pay Attention to Battery Care
Batteries, like the human body, are systems for energy storage and exchange. Like humans, they get stressed when they are pushed out of their comfort zone.

For e-scooter batteries, the comfort zone tends to be between 20% and 80%, which is an optimal range to avoid the possibility of overcharging or fully discharging.

Both overcharging and full discharging are stressful events for a battery and shorten its lifespan.

Charging the battery to 100% is fine, especially on long rides, but make sure you unplug it as soon as it hits full capacity and don't let it overcharge.

#4 Check Your Tire Pressure
In addition to the battery, it’s also a good idea to check your tire pressure before you hit the road. If it’s low, you can top it up with a portable air pump.

#5 How to Check Battery Remaining Range
Many customers will judge the mileage of the scooter based on the power display on the meter, but this is not very accurate. The most accurate is to look at the voltage data. When fully charging, the voltage value of the battery is 67.2V .

When you want to see your actual voltage, you only need to press the power button twice while keeping the power on. The actual voltage will be displayed above the meter
When the scooter start status is not riding is lower than 56V, please not use the two -motor mode (Please pay attention to the voltage value)
The powerful current in the dual-motor mode will cause the battery to protect the state, prevent the battery from over-discharge and damage. Connect the charger, it can unlock.

#6 Use Turn Signals

Our Mukuta is equipped with hidden buttons for turn signals. When you need to drive through traffic lights, please use them to pass safely.

#7 Don’t brake very fast
When you are driving fast, please avoid directly locking the right brake handle. Because it is very likely that due to the existence of inertia, your center of gravity will be unstable and you will fall forward. If you're new to riding, it is best to try your best Stick to the left brake (rear brake)

When you brake abruptly on an electric scooter, your body still has a large amount of momentum pushing you forward. To stay safe, the secret is shifting your weight over the back wheel. You can achieve this by bending your knees and squatting slightly as if you were about to sit on a chair.

By moving your weight over the back wheel, you can prevent any awkward movements with your e-scooter.

#8 Avoid driving in the rain
Our waterproof rating of around IP54 does not completely block waterproofing, as do most scooters in the industry. Since these scooters are not fully waterproof, riding them in the rain or through puddles is not recommended, although they can withstand some wet conditions.

It's also important to note that most scooter companies don't cover water damage under warranty, so be careful if you're riding in the rain!
