Can I ride the M1 in the rain? Should I be worried about rust or other environmental factors?

As an option for commuting, we're aware of the imperfect environments and conditions you might encounter while riding the M1. For the occasional rainstorm or patch of wet pavement, we've designed the M1 to be as water resistant as possible. The Powershift Battery is protected by a water resistant gasket between the battery bay and the battery lid, and components inside the Manta Drive are laminated to protect against water and dust. That said, some of the components (trucks, skate bearings, base plates) can be affected through normal wear and tear, including exposure to water. Always take your board inside when it's raining, and treat your M1 like you would any other consumer technology device.
