5. Push the ground with one foot while pressing the throttle to accelerate
Steering your TriBoard500 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.
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.

What our customers think
The ride feels very stable and the build quality is excellent. The wider wheels and suspension really help smooth out the riding experience which is far above lime, bird or jump rental scooters that I used to ride every day. It also feels a lot safer due to the grip of the wider wheels and the mechanical brake. I would recommend it.
The scooter is amazing. I believe it is the perfect balance in power and distance and weight. It can easily be folded up and put into a vehicle, and then brought back out and ridden around. It has plenty of acceleration, and can easily get up to about 32km/hr. And that is with a 200lb rider on it.
Cape Coral, FL
Battery endurance is a must on these scooters, and it does a great job. I have never run out of battery, and I am usually full speed wherever I go. Power is there for acceleration which is like a safety feature I believe when you are so much smaller than everyone else. You can quickly move out of the way if someone pulls out in front of you or anything like that..
Atlantic city, NJ
Worth the wait. Very happy with the product, powers great, goes up even the steepest hills around our area. Breaks work great. Ride feeling kind of like being on a snowboard or skateboard, the three wide wheel gives you an option of being able to lean a bit using your body but still lets you ride comfortably standing straight if that is what you prefer.
I’ve had the scooter for a few weeks now; I preordered the 2020 version. Customer support was excellent throughout the process. I’ve ridden a little over 100 km since it arrived. It’s very solidly built. Folding mechanism is easy to use. The three wheels provide a stable ride, and it’s easy to maneuver once you get used to it. I use it mostly for commuting; my average ride is 12-14 km round trip and it handles it easily with no loss of performance. I’m 175lbs and it gets me up hills easily.
Saint John, NB
Well after tons or research and few weeks of use, I would say I'm totally pleased with my purchase. Using the three wheel kick scooter has been very simple and easy to operate. That also includes the folding function when getting on the train. The nob makes that quick and easy. You can easily pick the scooter up by the bar and carry it or roll it behind you.
