In restricted areas. Driving at maximum speed and attempting sharp turns can create
a situation where the product becomes unstable. Therefore it is essential that the user
pay attention the guidance set out in this manual.
For maximum stability the speed setting should be set up to 50% of the maximum
available (halfway between the tortoise and the hare or just entering the red sector
on the speed indicator depending on the model.
The main factors affecting stability are:

e Seat height
e User movement
e Users manoeuvres
e Gradients or slopes
Please keep your speed to a level where you can safely stop without having to make
any erratic turns.
Do not load bags etc. on the back of the seat as this will affect the centre of gravity
