DANGER: RISK OF DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY

Similar to any skateboard, whenever you ride an Inboard M1 electric skateboard, you may risk death or serious injury from loss of control, collision and falls. All riders should read, understand, and abide by the terms and conditions of the user guide when riding. For the most up-to-date version of this user guide visit support.inboardtechnology.com.

 

GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

PLEASE CONSIDER IMPORTANT SAFETY TIPS BELOW

  • ALWAYS wear a helmet and protective gear such as knee pads, elbow pads, wrist pads and a padded jacket when riding.
  • DO NOT ride your M1 in environments, or at inclines and speeds where you would not safely be 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. For more information, visit the online tutorials at support.inboardtechnology.com.
  • AVOID riding on wet/uneven surfaces, steep hills, cracks, railroad tracks, gravel, rocks, in traffic, or on any obstacles that could lead to a loss of traction and cause a fall.
  • DO NOT ride the board if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • DO NOT ride the board if you are under the age of 16 years old.
  • DO NOT ride in places with poor visibility.
  • KEEP fingers, hair, and clothing away from motors, wheels and all moving parts.
  • DO NOT open or tamper with electronics housings; doing so will void the warranty.
  • USE CAUTION around the Manta Drive™. It is capable of rotating the wheels at very high speed. KEEP loose clothing, hands, and other body parts AWAY from the Manta Drive whenever operating. This may cause serious injury and/or damage to the M1.
  • DO NOT touch the Rear truck or the Manta Drives after extended use. Manta Drive and truck will get HOT and may cause serious burns. Allow time for these areas to cool before touching.
  • The Inboard M1 is not a toy.
  • Be prepared to stop by a means other than the RFLX™ Remote or Inboard Vision mobile app as braking power will be reduced above 24 mph / 38 kph.
  • It is expected that you, the user, are able to stand on and operate a standard non-powered skateboard before riding the M1.
  • DO NOT RIDE THE M1 AT SPEEDS OR IN ENVIRONMENTS YOU WOULD NOT NORMALLY RIDE A STANDARD NON-POWERED SKATEBOARD.

 

BATTERY OVERCHARGE

WARNING: RISK OF INJURY OR DAMAGE TO THE M1

Overcharging may occur if you brake for a long period of time with a fully charged battery. Avoid excessive braking down long, steep hills or mountains on a fully charged battery. Discharge some energy before braking downhill for an extended period of time to avoid this.

 

BATTERY BAY

WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK OR FIRE

The presence of moisture or water in the battery bay poses a serious risk of electric shock or fire. Keep this area clean and dry at all times.

 

MANTA DRIVE

DANGER: BURN RISK

DO NOT touch the Rear truck or the Manta Drives after extended use. Manta Drive and truck will get HOT and may cause serious burns. Allow time for these areas to cool before touching.

 

WATER RESISTANCE vs. WATERPROOFING

Use caution around water. The exterior of the M1 is water resistant. That means you can ride through puddles, occasionally splash the M1 with water, and not worry about damaging it. But the M1 is NOT waterproof. That means you can’t take a bath with your M1, or take it swimming in a lake or a pool. Think of your M1 like a cat, cat’s are water resistant, they’ll drink water, maybe tolerate some light splashing...but don’t try and give a cat a bath, you’ll have a bad time. The same goes for your M1. Keep in mind wet conditions could be potentially dangerous, resulting in loss of traction. Keep water away from the interior of the M1, especially the Battery Bay. The presence of moisture or water inside the battery bay poses a serious risk of electrical shock or fire. Keep this area clean and dry at all times. THE INSIDE OF THE BATTERY BAY IS NOT WATER RESISTANT. If water DOES get inside the battery bay, it is best to immediately remove the battery, wipe up excess water, and put the M1 in a cool, dry place and allow the M1 enough time to dry out.

 

AVOIDING HAZARDS

The Inboard M1 is highly maneuverable and allows you to easily navigate around obstacles. However, to prevent the loss of traction, you must be careful when riding and learn to identify and avoid slippery, icy, or wet surfaces, loose materials (sand/gravel), steep slopes, and obstacles. Stop and step off your M1, pick it up and move it over unsafe surfaces or terrain.
