Hi,

i just ordered a second hand KS16 black mat. I beleive as it is my first wheel it's going to be beat up untill i can ride it peoperly. Do you have any feedback on how resistant the plastics are ? Does anyone knows if the color of the mat model is just on the surface reavealing white scratches? Of course i ordered some foam to protect it but i guess damages will be unavoidable.

Thanks for any inputs.

No, it's black plastics. At the beginning I recommend to connect it to your hip with some stretchable safety belt (it's a lot better than to hold the belt in one hand). Then it cannot run away when you jump off.  But when you start driving faster than 10 to 15 km/h I would remove the belt again.

I did it this way, and mine doesn't look bad (there are some scratches on the pedals, but not on the body).
