Self Balancing Scooter FAQ's

How does a Drift Scooter work?

All Drift Scooters function in the same way. Basically the board moves according to your body’s gravity

  1. To move forward or backward on your Drift Scooter, just leans slightly forward or backward.
  2. To turn left or right, simply move the foot on left or right pedal.
  3. Stand straightly, you will stop moving. 

In just a few minutes you'll feel right and home on your Drift Scooter. Additionally, there are plenty of videos online that you can learn how to ride a self balancing scooter on.
