Bob Eisenman Posted December 13, 2016 Share Posted December 13, 2016 Assessing an EUCs potential for a crash along a route: For some EUCs the advertised safe riding surface is one without (about) one inch bumps or ruts. Riding within this tolerance is generally safe for riders. Wheel diameter, motor torque, rider weight and degree of incline all add into the consideration of what is considered safe. If you place this requirement for safe riding upon the terrain a rider chooses to actually ride the EUC does the rider find: 1- 'no issues with safety' (newly constructed smooth sidewalk or other uniformly smooth riding surface) 2- 'some safetey related issues' Constant visual surveying of the upcoming terrain is required to evaluate bumps, ruts or riding surface mismatches. 3- 'very complex safety issues' Constant visual scanning, bump and rut riding skills and/or evasive bumb and rut riding maneuvers required. 4- 'increased day vs night safety issues' When comparing day vs night riding along certain 'routes' the rider routinely faces the risk of crashing due to route illumination issues 5- 'wear full hockey padding and helmet' Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
