Quick Start Guide
Do Not Ride Without Reading This Message
Whenever you ride a Vokboard, you must read and follow all warnings and instructions in the manual.
Always Wear a Helmet!
Other safety gear, like gloves, pads, and long sleeves are all highly recommended.
Learn How To Ride Step By Step
If you are a beginner, please do not try to make sharp turns, or ride in high speed, unseen bumps and cracks may cause you falling off the board and hurt yourself. Ride the board around your neighborhood for a couple of times before you take the board on a long ride.
Check And Tighten The Screws Before You Ride
The screws on the front and back truck are tightened at the best status from the production line. If you love to carve hard, you may want to loose them a little bit, but that may cause the screws fallen off after certain period of time, so please check the screws every time before you ride. It is recommended to always have 2-3 threads above the screw.

The Throttle in 3rd and 4th Mode is Extremely Sensitive
To make the board responsive and fun, but it also means fast or sudden inputs can easily cause you to fall off. Start by trying to move forward as slowly as possible in these modes.
You will fall sooner or later, be mentally and physically prepared
Even you are a skilled rider, you will fall at certain point, reason being going too fast/turn too sharp/unseen bump and crack.....It's very common, so please be prepared.
Don't put the remote in your pocket
The board will fly if the throttle got accidentally triggered, it happens more often when you put the remote in your pocket, so please don't put the remote in your pocket! If you want to take a brake, or stop for a coffee, turn off the remote first.
Braking Downhill on a Full Battery will Cause Board Shutdown
Since the regenerative braking will overcharge the battery. To prevent this from happening, the remote will warn you by beeping, and you’ll lose your braking power. Safely come to a stop before this happens, and ride on flats or uphill to drain the battery before attempting downhill again.
Hills and High Speed can be Very Dangerous
Because crashes can cause serious injuries, or worse. Be extra careful when pushing the limits of the board, even if you’re an experienced rider.
Cars and Other Vehicles Can Kill You
So always be aware of your surroundings when riding in the presence of other vehicles. Ride defensively and assume other vehicles can’t see you. Remember that your board may lose power and brakes at any moment. Be aware of the laws that govern the use of your board on public roads, bike paths, sidewalks, or other places that you may ride.
Some Places to Avoid When Riding!
Avoid water, wet surfaces, slippery or uneven surfaces, steep hills, traffic, cracks, train tracks, gravel, rocks, or any obstacles that could cause a loss of traction. Avoid night riding, areas with poor visibility, and narrow spaces.
Your Board Can Lose Power and Brakes at Any Moment
Due to 2.4G radio interference, a dead remote battery, unintentional release of the Engage Button, downhill overcharging of a full battery, and other factors. If this happens, the board turns back into an unpowered skateboard, while it will still roll but may lose brake. so only ride your Vokboard at speeds and on hills where you’d be comfortable without power and brakes.
Charge The Battery Properly And Regularly
The battery has a BMS built in, so normally you don't need to worry about it if you want to charge the battery after the light turns green, but always remember not to left the board charging unattended, just in case something happens. It is recommended to always keep the battery level above 50%( two bars ), so if you are not going to ride the board for a long time, make sure you store the board in a right place where it's not too cold/too warm/wet. and set a note to remind yourself of charging the board every 2-3 weeks.
Do not ride the board in harsh environments, or at speeds where you would not be safely in control of an unpowered skateboard. In the event of wireless interference or battery fault, you may need to rely on skating techniques, like foot braking or sliding to stop.
Warning: Avoid Water!
Your Vokboard is not waterproof, and riding on wet surfaces can cause a loss of traction. Electronics and motors are water-resistant to avoid damage from puddles and wet roads, but the deck, bearings, and other components can still be damaged. Damage to the board due to water exposure is not covered under warranty.
Warning: Pinch Points
Keep fingers, hair, and clothing away from belts, motors, wheels, and all moving parts.
Warning: Risk of Electric Shock!
Do not open or tamper with electronics housings, which also voids the warranty.
Warning: Always Inspect Your Board / Remote Before Ride!
-Check wheels, bearings, deck, and motors for signs of damage before you ride. Replace as necessary. If you ever have a concern please contact us immediately.
-Be sure all screws, nuts and bolts are tight. The streets that you ride on will cause excessive vibration and it is possible for these items to loosen over time, so check regularly.
-Please ride responsibly and respect those around you, both for your safety and to help promote a new mode of transportation.
Please read these things carefully, to avoid any problem in the future.
