When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the centre of
gravity of you and your Travel Scooter toward the front of the Travel Scooter for improved stability.
NOTE: When negotiating ramps, if the throttle control lever is released while moving forward, the
powered Travel Scooter may "rollback" approximately 30.5 cm (1 foot) before the brake engages. If the
throttle control lever is released while moving in reverse, the powered Travel Scooter may "rollback"
approximately 1 meter (3 feet) before the brake engages.

Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility
of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning),
uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction
(such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt
directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a
corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your Travel
Scooter from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable centre of
gravity. When using your Travel Scooter at higher speeds, do not corner sharply. This
greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall.
Your Travel Scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems:
Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the
Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or
when power is removed from the system for any reason.
