Table of Contents
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
Check for proper tyre inflation. Maintain but do not exceed the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated
on each tyre if equipped with pneumatic tyres.
Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
Check all harness connections to the electronics module. Make sure they are secured properly.
Check the brakes. See IX. "Care and Maintenance."
Check battery charge. See IV. "Batteries and Charging."
NOTE: If you discover a problem, contact your authorised Pride Dealer for assistance.


Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
Keep in mind that the maximum weight capacity includes the combined weight of the user and any acces-
sories mounted to the scooter.
MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity of your scooter. Exceeding the
weight capacity voids your warranty. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/
or property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your
scooter may affect the centre of gravity, resulting in a tip or a fall.
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tyres, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tyres and help ensure the smooth
operation of your scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on
the tyre be maintained in pneumatic tyres at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate
your tyres. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tyres may burst.
Failure to maintain the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on pneumatic tyres at all
times may result in tyre and/or wheel failure.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter tyres from a regulated air source with an available
pressure gauge. Inflating your tyres from an unregulated air source could overinflate
them, resulting in a burst tyre.
NOTE: If the tyres on your scooter list the psi rating only, use the following conversion formulas to
find the bar or kPa rating: bar = psi x 0.06895; kPa = psi x 6.89476.


More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe
access. Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cor-
nering skills on your scooter.
Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
Take wide swings with your scooter's front wheel(s) around any tight corners. If you do that, the
scooter's rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short and not bump into or get hung up
on any railing corners.
When driving down a ramp, keep the scooter's speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent.
Avoid sudden stops and starts.
