I. SAFETY WARNINGS
A. General Disclaimer
Riding ACTON RocketSkates™ can be a dangerous activity. Certain conditions may
cause the equipment to fail without fault of the manufacturer. Like other electric
transportation products, ACTON RocketSkates™ are intended to move and accordingly
it is possible for the rider to lose control, fall, collide with other objects and/or get into
dangerous situations that no amount of care, instruction or expertise can completely
eliminate. If such things occur you can be seriously injured or die, even when using
safety equipment and using other precautions.
RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND USE COMMON SENSE.
This manual contains many warnings and cautions concerning the consequences of
failing to maintain, inspect or properly use your ACTON RocketSkates™. Because any
incident can result in serious injury or even death, we repeat the warning of possible
serious injury or death.
WEAR HELMET AND PROTECTIVE GEAR AT ALL TIMES.
B. Age, Weight & Health
ACTON RocketSkates™ are designed for adults and for older teens. The recommended
rider age is 16 years of age and older. Notwithstanding this age recommendation, any
rider unable to fit comfortably in ACTON RocketSkates™ should not attempt to use
it. Keep ACTON RocketSkates™ away from small children and young teens. ACTON
RocketSkates™ are only intended for use only by persons who are, at a minimum,
completely comfortable and competent while operating ACTON RocketSkates™.
DO NOT EXCEED THE WEIGHT LIMIT OF 275 LBS. Rider weight does not
necessarily mean a person’s size is appropriate to fit or maintain control of ACTON
RocketSkates™.
C. Conditions for safe riding
Always check and obey all local laws or regulations which may affect the locations
where ACTON RocketSkates™ may be used. Ride defensively. Watch out for potential
obstacles that could catch your wheels, force you to swerve suddenly, or lose control.
Be careful to avoid pedestrians, rollerbladers, motor vehicles, skateboarders, other
RocketsSkates™ riders, scooters, bikes, children or animals that may enter your path.
Do not activate Normal or Pro mode on the ACTON App unless you are on
RocketSkates™ in a safe environment suitable for riding, and you are comfortable
maintaining control of RocketSkates™.
Do not touch the wheels or any moving parts on your RocketSkates™ when in use or
immediately after the discontinuation of riding, as these parts can become very hot and
may burn you.
Do not attempt or do stunts or tricks on your RocketSkates™. RocketSkates™ are not
made to withstand abuse from misuse such as jumping, curb grinding or any other
types of stunts. RocketSkates™ can break from the stresses incurred by these activities.
Any such misuse will void the warranty.
RocketSkates™ are designed to be ridden by only one person at a time. Do not carry
another person or animal while riding RocketSkates™. Do not use near swimming pools,
holes, cliffs, or other uneven terrain.
Do not ride your RocketSkates™ in wet or icy weather and never immerse the
RocketSkates™ in water, as the electrical and drive components could be damaged by
water or create other possibly unsafe conditions.
RocketSkates™ are intended for use on flat, dry surfaces such as pavement or level
ground without loose debris such as sand, leaves, rockets or gravel. Wet, slick, bumpy,
uneven or rough surfaces may impair traction and contribute to possible accidents.
Never risk damaging surfaces such as carpet or flooring by use of RocketSkates™
indoors.
Do not ride RocketSkates™ at night or when visibility is limited.
4
Before riding, be sure to check that all four wheels, buttons, and straps are secured
properly. Do not ride the ACTON RocketSkates™ when it is raining. Always ride on dry
paved surfaces. Gravel, wet, and uneven surfaces are hazardous.
Check if battery is properly installed and charged. Check battery level through the
ACTON App. Do not place the battery near heat or fire. Do not expose the charger to
water or any moisture.
Do not forget to power off the ACTON RocketSkates™ after each use pressing both
power buttons on the back of each skate.
Always wear proper protective equipment such as an approved safety helmet (with
chin strap securely buckled), wrist guards, elbow pads and kneepads. A helmet may be
legally required by local law or regulations in your area. A long-sleeved shirt and long
pants are recommended. Always wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles),
never ride barefooted or in sandals, and keep shoelaces tied and out of the way of the
wheels, motor, and drive system.
D. Battery Handling & Disposal
ACTON RocketSkates™ comes with a charger and the charger should be regularly
examined for possible damage to the cord, plug, enclosure or other parts; and in the
event of damage, please do not attempt to charge RocketSkates™ until the charger has
been repaired or replaced. While it is safe to charge one at a time, it is recommended
to always charge both together. Unplug charger and disconnect from RocketSkates™
when not in use.
Battery is best used under optimal conditions. Temperature 50-75F (10-24C), absolute
humidity 45-85%.
Charger / Battery Safety Warning: Use only the recommended charger and use caution
when charging. The charger should be operated only by an adult. Do not operate
charger near flammable materials. Make sure the power is turned off prior to removing/
replacing batteries from the chassis. Make sure the power switch is turned off whenever
the RocketSkates™ are not in use. Never store the batteries in freezing or below
freezing temperatures. Always disconnect from the charger prior to wiping down and
cleaning your RocketSkates™ with any liquid.
Proper Charger Use: Your RocketSkates™ may not have a fully charged battery when
first received. Accordingly, you should charge the battery prior to your first use.
Run time: Up to 45 min, 60 min, 90 min of continuous riding time (depends on model)
Recharge time: 1.5 hours, 2 hours, 2.5 hours (depends on model)
Average battery life: 600 charge/discharge cycles
When the RocketSkates™ are not in regular use, recharge the battery at least twice a
month until normal use is resumed. Do not wrap it with conductive material- damage
could by cause by direct contact between conductive material and battery. Do not
short circuit by linking connectors together. Do not demolish or disassemble the
battery by yourself. Do not store the battery in a damp place.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE ABOVE WARNINGS INCREASES RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY.
USE WITH APPROPRIATE CAUTION AND SERIOUS ATTENTION TO SAFE OPERATION.

E. Radio Interference Precaution
ACTON RocketSkates™ incorporates a sophisticated communication algorithm to
ensure stable connection between Lead and Follower skates. But in some rare cases
connection may be lost between the two skates. As a safety precaution, skates will shut
off immediately when the connection is lost. You need to manually restart both skates
using the buttons on the backs of each skate, in order to re-establish connection. If a
loss of connection happens more than once, stop using the skates immediately and
avoid using the RocketSkates™ again in such areas.
Try to avoid areas with high-power radio-transmitting equipment such as a radio tower.
Please contact ACTON for further assistance.

III. USING ROCKETSKATES™
A. Assembling the Footstrap and Footpad
Warning: Proper adjustment for footstrap and footpad are essential for a safe and
enjoyable experience with the RocketSkates™. Failure to adjust the footstrap and/or
footpad may prohibit you from fastening the RocketSkates™ to your feet securely and
may cause injury when using the RocketSkates™.
Adjusting the Footstrap
1
Use the tools included
to unscrew the screw
fastening the preadjustment strap to the
skates.
2 Put the strap over
your normal riding shoe.
Make sure the buckle is
near the center of your
shoe.
7
3 Locate the preadjustment hole on the
side of the strap that is
closest to the fastening
hole on the skates.
Carefully cut the rest of
the strap and use the
tools to reinstall the
footstrap.
Changing the Footpad
The RocketSkates™ comes with a long footpad installed. This should fit shoe sizes
Women US 6, UK 4 and larger. Men US 6.5, UK 39 and larger. If your shoes size is
smaller, you have the option of swapping the footpad to a shorter one.
1
2 Slide the new footpad on and put
the washers and nuts back and tighten
both screws.
Use the attached wrench to remove
both screws on the footpad. Remove
the screws, nuts and washers.
B. Charging
Warning: For safety, please turn off the skates while charging.
Failure to recharge the battery at least once two months may result in an excessively
degraded battery performance. The battery requires charging for at least 2 hours
before first use.
During charging, the red light on
the charger should be on. Once the
RocketSkates™ are fully charged, the
light on the charger will turn green.
The charging port is at the top center
section of the ankle cushion. Plug into
this port first, then plug the charger into
the wall outlet.
C. Register & Setup
RocketSkates™ can be connected with app through Bluetooth. Please download the
app “ROCKETSKATES” to your phone. Currently we only offer the app for Android
4.3+ and iOS iPhone 5+. When the app is opened for the first time, the registration
process will help you through some features that allow the RocketSkates™ to suit
you better and therefore enhance the your first experience. These features include an
adaptable motor performance for different weight and height. Please provide accurate
information at setup. For your safety, please set to BEGINNER mode on the app home
page to start with. Only set to NORMAL mode when you are a comfortable rider. Only
set to PRO mode when you are very familiar with the RocketSkates™.

D. Riding
Warning: Wear all suggested protective gears first including a helmet, ankle pads and
knee pads. Check that the power is off and sit down in a secure location. Firmly strapin the skates over your shoes. Make sure the Lead skate is on the foot that is most
comfortable for you to control.
1 Turn the power on by pressing the
hexagonal button at the rear end of the
skates. A brief music will be played and
the battery level LED will turn on. The
RocketSkates™ should be in brake mode.
2 Carefully stand up with toes of both
feet on the ground. Lean slightly forward
to avoid falling backward. Push the heel
of the lead foot firmly down to initiate.
DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. The brake will
be released and the skates should start
moving freely.
3 Before kick-to-start, practice skating
with the RocketSkates turned off. To begin
skating, kick-off with one foot and let both
skates move with the momentum. You will
then feel the motors kick in.
4 To speed up, tilt the lead skate
forward. To slow down or brake, push the
heel of the Lead skate down. The Follower
skate will carry the same speed and brake
regardless of heel position.
If you need to pause while riding the RocketSkates™, push the heel of the Lead skates
down firmly until the RocketSkates™ have come to a complete stop for at least one
second. You are now able to lift your heel and walk on your toes. To begin riding again,
kick-off and repeat step 3.
When you finish riding, stop, sit down and turn the RocketSkates™ off before you
release the buckle.

• Maiden Voyage.
Find a buddy to hold your arm or hold a railing or wall. LEAN FORWARD TO MAINTAIN YOUR BALANCE. DO NOT LEAN BACK. Always keep in mind that speed is controlled by pushing the heel down on the Lead skate.
• Standing on Rocketskates™ is hard.
Keep your knees bent and touch your toes to the
ground. DO NOT LEAN BACK. Try walking with
skates (with both skates in brake mode). At walking,
don’t roll the wheel or you may start the motor.
• Balance.
Do not position your feet side by side when using RocketSkates™. Always have one foot in front of the other to maintain balance. Keep both feet pointed in the same direction at all times. DO NOT LEAN BACK.
• Braking.
Remember that only the Lead skates controls
the braking. Only use your heel to brake or accelerate.
DO NOT LEAN BACK.
