Safe cycling is an important concern for all bike manufacturers. Using common sense is usually the best way to cycle safely & get the most out of your E-Bike. Here are some common sense ideas to keep in mind whenever you go for a bike ride:
Many states require different safety devices. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the laws of the state in which you are cycling, & to comply with those laws (including properly equipping your bike if need be)
Be sure to thoroughly understand how to operate the components of your E-Bike
Always do a mechanical safety check before cycling
Be sure all equipment is adjusted properly, especially the brakes, & that all quick release devices are in the 'closed' position before cycling. When you need to react quickly, you need to know how your bike will respond.
Wear a helmet
Always wear a helmet when cycling, no matter how short the route may be. Always keep the chin strap securely buckled. A helmet meeting the appropriate safety standards, would be ideal to protect against head injuries. It must fit & be worn correctly to do the job efficiently.
