Each board comes with three different riding modes to suit your capability.
- Personal Safety
It’s always recommended to wear a helmet with elbow and knee pads. The more protection the better!
Always wear closed toe shoes, your shoes are the only things holding onto the board so make sure they’re laced up and secure.
Be courteous to other riders, drivers, and pedestrians. Consult your local regulations and laws for where it's appropriate to ride your board.
In addition to braking electronically, you can also control your speed with your feet. This is especially critical skill to master in the event that you drop your remote!
Follow these steps to foot brake. Start by practicing on flat ground!
- Position your front foot to point forward and bend your knee.
- Face straight ahead and put your back foot out to the side of the board, in line with the front foot.
- Aim to touch the ground with your heel first; slowly apply pressure and roll your foot flat.
- As you footbrake harder, don’t allow your foot to drift too far back or it will hit your rear wheel.
As you go up in price range, as does the power and range. The QU4TRO being the fastest and most powerful, as its four-wheel drive. The BLINK S2 is a step down from the QU4TRO, with two-wheel drive and lower top speed. The BLINK S is the most accessible for first time riders, with only one hub motor powering the board.
Nope, all our boards come with different riding modes to suit any rider of any experience.
- Board Safety
Top speed can be achieved in optimal riding conditions, with a freshly charged battery, no wind and a smooth riding surface. Your top speed will vary depending on which board you purchase.
BLINK QU4TRO – 23mph
BLINK S2 – 18mph
BLINK S – 15mph
BLINK Go – 10mph
Yes, depending on which board you have you can take on more challenging inclines and declines.
BLINK QU4TRO – 30%
BLINK S2 – 20%
BLINK S – 15%
BLINK Go – 8%
We always recommend riding in optimal weather conditions, with a smooth, dry surface.
Our boards are best enjoyed on the smoothest, most even surfaces possible.
Speed wobbles start to happen when the board starts to involuntarily make turns into a ‘S’ pattern. This generally occurs when the rider is placing too much weight over the rear wheel, giving too much steering input. This can also happen at low speeds if your weight is not distributed correctly.
In the case you get caught by the speed wobbles, try your best to stay calm and relax your leg muscles, tense legs can’t make the problem worse. Also try re-distributing your weight and lean a little over your left foot.
All our boards use regenerative braking, as you brake the board charges itself. However, make sure to not brake for long periods of time when your board is fully charged, as it can overcharge the batteries.
No, we don’t recommend doing any tricks, this can heavily compromise your board.
If you own the Blink S or S2, yes. Unfortunately for you QU4TRO owners, the battery is too big to meet the TSA requirements.
BLINK QU4TRO – 280lb
BLINK S2 – 250lb
BLINK S – 220lb
BLINK Go – 130lb (Recommended Weight)
Yes! All our boards use hub motors that have very little rolling resistance, allowing the user to still use the board as normal if the battery dies.
