Thank you so much for your support and for buying your Evolve electric skateboard through Fatdaddy. We are so happy to have you on ‘board’ and can’t wait to get you out riding your new Evolve GTR electric skateboard!

The first thing we would ask you to do before beginning to  ride your Evolve GTR electric skateboard is to read this manual in detail.

You will find it valuable and you will be able to learn a lot about your new product. Once you have finished reading the manual and understood all of the warnings and instructions, you should bookmark this page for further reference.

Secondly, we ask that you strictly follow the assembly instructions that the manufacturer gave you. You must adhere to all instructions within and if you are not sure or have questions please refer to our website and that one of the manufacturer.

Carefully review the component supplier information available on our website as we cannot include every aspect of each component within this guide due to potential changes from our suppliers.

For your own wellbeing do not assemble your product unless you are absolutely comfortable doing so. For any questions contact our service email [email protected]

Furthermore this guide cannot teach you how to ride an electric skateboard. We cannot take responsibility for teaching you how to ride a skateboard or the local road laws where you intend to use your electric skateboard. Electric skateboarding is a potentially hazardous activity and you must ensure that you stay in control of your skateboard at all times. By choosing to ride an electric skateboard on public roads and streets, you take on the responsibility for this risk. Keep in mind that even with a helmet and other protective equipment you can still be vulnerable to other road traffic. Ride your electric skateboard, respect all other road users and always observe traffic signals and signs.

Do not use your Evolve GTR electric skateboard if you are tired, have had alcoholic beverages or have taken drugs. Never allow a second person on your electric skateboard while you are riding.

Before setting off on your Evolve GTR electric skateboard we recommend you use the minimum protective equipment. A properly fitted bicycle helmet, a resilient pair of shoes and some reflective or brightly coloured clothing will all help you to have safer rides on your electric skateboard.
