Learn to ride the TrekBoard

 

   2.1 How to use

  • Press the power button to start the TrekBoard
  • Put one foot on the outermost part of the pedal (closest to the tire), which will trigger the gyroscope and in turn will enable the AS indicator (auto-stabilization). Once the system is in the state of balance, put your other foot on the other pedal to enable operation
  • After standing on the TrekBoard keep your body weight still to remain stationary
  • To move forward, transfer some body weight to the front of the board. To move backwards, lean backwards to transfer your body weight to the rear of the TrekBoard
  • Take weight off your right foot to move to the left and take weight off your left foot to move to the right
  • To get off the TrekBoard, simply take a step off backwards.
  • To adjust between modes (not available for TrekBoard S+/XL) simply turn the TrekBoard vertically and press the power button

 

  2.2 Protective Indicators

  • The TrekBoard will notify the user with a buzzer under these operating conditions:
  • Low Battery Voltage
  • Upon Charging
  • Stabilization issues (when the user gets on the board while the pedal is leaning forwards or backwards by more than 10⁰ or during operation)
  • Reaching a speed over 15km/h
  • Power is low (light will turn red and the TrekBoard will beep)
  • If the tires stall, the system will initiate a shutdown after 2 seconds
  • Upon continuous high current discharge (such as climbing a steep slope for too long)

 

  2.3 Practice Tips

  • The TrekBoard works best on a flat surface
  • When riding, relax your legs and allow your knees to be bent slightly to improve balance
  • Do not jump on the TrekBoard under any circumstance or allow the TrekBoard to leave the ground
  • We do not recommend riding the TrekBoard in public until the user is comfortable and experienced enough

  2.4 Bluetooth and Different Mode Settings

  • To change between the three modes on the TrekBoard (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced) simply tilt the TrekBoard to a vertical position (with one tire on the floor) and press the power button. An indicator light will begin flashing.
  • To pair the TrekBoard via bluetooth, simply turn on the board and scan for available connections with your wireless device . Once you successfully pair both devices, the TrekBoard will indicate with a beeping noise.
