Always wear a Helmet
Start in speed mode 1
- Grip both hand grips
- Stand with one foot on the deck and one foot on the ground
- Check brake level for positive braking action
- Press power button on the throttle/display
- Push the ground with one foot while pressing the throttle to accelerate
Steering your Cobra5K is achieved by shifting your body weight from side to side. Try out these different riding styles to find what suits you best.
1- Ride Snowboard Style with one foot forward and one foot back, shift your weight from heel to toe. Regular riders will have their left foot forward and goofy foot riders will have their right foot forward.
2- Ride Ski Style with feet side by side, drop your hip and push handlebars to the side you are steering towards.
3- Ride Tail Style with one foot forward in the center of the deck and one foot on the tail - this style centers your weight for quicker direction changes. This is an advanced riding style for experienced riders.
Braking- Pull hand brake lever toward the hand grips when you need to slow down or stop. When braking at higher speeds, lean back so that your weight is over the back wheel to decrease your stopping distance.
Cobra5K is a powerful stand up board, please treat it with respect and never underestimate its potential. The use of extra wide pneumatic wheels help a lot in stabling the board. Nonetheless care should be taken at first until you are familiarized with the functioning of this transporter. Whether you're a seasoned skater or it's your first time, follow the guide below and always keep your and others safety in mind.
Always wear an ASTM and CPSC certified helmet when riding. Make sure that chin strap is attached before your ride and follow the helmet manufactures instructions for proper user and fit.
Make sure to always wear shoes that have good traction on the board and will stay on your feet.
Squeeze the hand brake lever to ensure there is positive braking action before starting your ride.
- Board Control
Make sure you are standing on your board with your hands on the hand grips before engaging the throttle and keep hands on hand grips when riding.

What our customers think
Have done a lot of homework before committing to the Cobra5K and for my intended usage I think the price to quality ratio is great. It is a lot of machine and I am a speed junkie so I needed something capable of keeping up. So far, can’t complain.
I happened to have rented and owned a variety of kick scooters throughout the years and I can’t say I’ve ridden anything like the Cobra5K before. The raw power from the rear wheel is awesome. With so much power I think Merkava should consider introducing an “all wheel drive” version. It would get better traction but you wouldn’t be able to do burns with the rear wheel. That’s just my 2 cents.
Been wanting this type of toy for a little while now and was actually considering more expensive alternatives until I stumbled on the Cobra5K. It seems to be offering just as much for less. I received mine three weeks ago and I really enjoy it. Still not using it at its full potential. Can’t wait to muster up the guts to unleash this animal:)
Sault St Marie, ON
I’m rarely one to comment on websites but I feel this kick scooter warrants a little praise being that it is far from being mainstream, with its price tag and all. I financed mine through the website so it didn’t hurt as much. But wow, what a machine. I feel like I get a workout every time I use it. You have to try it to understand. I do recommend it.
Love it so far. Just received it so I will probably add another comment once I’ve inflicted a little more abuse to it :) All in all, workmanship and built is fantastic though. Beat my expectations for a stand up kick scooter. This title doesn’t do it justice, someone should coin a new word for these machines.
Merkava is a biblical word for “Chariot” and also used by tank manufacturers. It’s actually very fitting for this kick scooter as it is exactly how I would describe it when compared to what we’ve been accustomed to seeing so far in this segment. A real tank of a scooter. Love it.
