Essential Safety Gear for Riding Electric Skateboards

Keep Safe While Riding E-boards

All riders - beginners and professionals, rollerbladers and skaters - must wear protective equipment.

The most common skating injuries are injuries to the elbows and wrists when falling on an outstretched arm or elbow; knee injury from falling on knees.

To protect against these injuries while riding an Electric Skateboard, it is necessary to use special equipment, like helmets, knee pads, elbows pads and wrist pads.

Head injuries are the most dangerous, so a helmet is a mandatory element of protection, it reduces the risk of head injury.

For girls with long hair, it is better to put your hair in a pigtail under a helmet. Do not use metal hairpins and hairpins, they increase the risk of injury when falling.

Comfortable clothing for skateboarding

There are no special rules here, the main thing is that nothing should hamper movements.

If you ride at night, we recommend that you purchase clothing with reflective elements.

Checking the technical condition

Before each ride, we recommend that all riders thoroughly inspect the e-boards. They must be fully operational: wheels, bearings and brake system are not worn out, all bolts are tightly tightened.

It is best to avoid puddles, sand and fine gravel when riding. Dirt can damage the undercarriage of the wheels or the board

Choosing the right place to ride

Beginners should choose flat surfaces for walking without any special height differences and dense pedestrian flow, for example, large parks and embankments. Check in advance for steep slopes, road junctions, and other hazards in selected areas.

It is better to master tricks on specially equipped sites - rollerdromes and skateparks.

Compliance with traffic rules

Before you get on your skates, scooter or e-skateboard, you should study the current traffic rules, as they change periodically. These are roller skates, scooters, skateboards, hoverboards and other similar vehicles.

According to the changes, riders over 14 years of age must use bicycle and bicycle paths, the carriageway of bicycle zones or cycle lanes for riding. If they are absent or it is impossible to move on them, it is allowed to drive on sidewalks and footpaths.

Sidewalks and footpaths are intended primarily for pedestrian traffic, riders moving along them do not have priority

It is assumed that in the residential area it will be possible to ride not only on sidewalks, but also on the roadway. An important point, when leaving a residential area, SIM owners, like car drivers, must give way to other road users.

Crossing the road on a pedestrian and riding an electric skateboard on the roadway is extremely dangerous

For SIM holders from 7 to 14 years old, the skiing area will be limited to sidewalks, pedestrian, bicycle and cycling paths, as well as outside pedestrian zones.

Control of speed and movements

At high speeds, roller skates, a skateboard are difficult to control. Therefore, one of the first skills to master is slowing down and braking.

Reduce speed to a minimum when passing pedestrians with small children and dogs, as their behavior is unpredictable


You need to be as careful as possible to ride on wet asphalt. It is best to refrain from riding in the rain altogether, or to ride at low speeds without tricks. Wet grip is worse. The rider can lose balance due to any sudden movements and sharp maneuvers.

Now you know what rules you need to follow when moving on roller skates, scooters and skateboards around the city. Do not forget that it is better to purchase protective equipment. You can choose a suitable kit on the website.
