Here are some safety precautions to consider when riding electric bikes:

1. Wear a Helmet

Whether it's a long-distance ride or a short trip, always wear a helmet that meets safety standards to protect your head from unexpected injuries. 

Of course, choosing a safe and affordable helmet is essential, and we recommend the Xiaomi Smart4u SH50 helmet. It is made of imported PC and EPS materials, which is lightweight while ensuring its safety. There are also 7 high-brightness LED backlights on the back of the helmet, which are ventilated and have multiple light effect modes. They are suitable for electric bicycles, electric scooters, balance bikes, pulleys, bicycles, etc.


2. Familiarize Yourself with Vehicle Operation

Before riding, be sure to familiarize yourself with the operation of the electric bike, including braking, steering, and gear shifting, to ensure you can respond flexibly to various situations. If you need more convenient accessories, such as mobile phone holders, baskets, etc., you can check out our e-bikes and e-scooters accessories library.

3. Check the Vehicle Condition

Regularly check the electric bike's braking system, tire pressure, lights, and signaling devices to ensure the vehicle is in good condition. In this way, no matter what special situation you encounter, your electric bicycle can handle your operations correctly and successfully, such as emergency braking, lane changing, turning, etc.

4. Obey Traffic Rules

When riding an electric bike, obey traffic rules, including direction of travel, lane regulations, yielding to pedestrians, etc., to enhance your safety on the road.

5. Stay Alert

Stay alert while riding, pay attention to your surroundings, and prevent unexpected situations such as pedestrians suddenly crossing the road or vehicles changing lanes.

6. Control Speed

Reasonably control your speed according to road conditions and the environment to avoid accidents caused by excessive speed. Safety is the most important thing, both for yourself and for others.

7. Avoid Fatigue Driving

Long rides can lead to fatigue, affecting driving safety, so take breaks when feeling tired to avoid fatigue driving.

8. Exercise Caution at Intersections

Be particularly careful when crossing intersections, observe traffic conditions, and ensure safe passage.

9. Be Mindful of Weather Conditions

In adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, or strong winds, reduce riding or choose safer routes.

10. Maintain Visibility

When riding at night or in low visibility conditions, turn on your lights and wear bright clothing to increase your visibility on the road.

In summary, riding an electric bike is an environmentally friendly and healthy way to travel, but safety always comes first. Only by strictly adhering to safety rules can we truly enjoy the pleasure of riding.
