Safety

Kickboard Canada and MICRO are committed to promoting safe scooting. Our scooters have an outstanding safety record because they are professionally designed in Switzerland by Micro Mobility Systems and are manufactured using the highest quality components.

While our scooters are safe, it’s still very important that they are used properly to minimize the risk of injury. We ask that you follow our safety rules below while you’re out having fun on you MICRO.

Safety Rules for All Scooter Riders

  • Each time before the scooter is used, check to make sure that the steering tube is locked into place and that all the screws and bolts are tight
  • Riding in poor visibility conditions is very dangerous and increases the risk of accidents and injury. Always make sure that you can be seen and heard.
  • Keep an eye out on the terrain. Scooters should not be used on wet, oily, sandy, gravelled, uneven or icy surfaces. Pay attention to stones, bumps and curbs!
  • Do not use your scooter on wet surfaces. Water can cause slipping, make the brakes ineffective and cause damage to the mechanical parts of your scooter.
  • Please note that any modifications to your scooter will void the warranty.

Extra Safety Rules for Kids

  • It is recommended that children under 8 should ride with adult supervision at all times. MICRO products should only be used according to the age and weight limits. The maximum load for a Mini Micro is 20 kg while the maximum for the Maxi Micro is 50 kg.
  • Safety equipment should be worn. Ensure that your child always wears a helmet and close-toed rubber-soled shoes. Elbow and knee pads are highly recommended for additional safety.
  • Ensure that your child does not ride down any steep hills. The brake is not designed to decelerate from high downhill speeds.
  • The brake pad is not intended to be applied for prolonged periods and can become hot when applied heavily. Explain to your child that direct skin contact may cause burns.
  • Ensure that your child does not ride on roads or paths with motor vehicle traffic.
  • Always make sure that your child stops, dismounts, looks and listens before crossing the road.
  • Only one child may ride the scooter at a time.
