Just like any other small vehicle, safety should be taken into utmost consideration when hopping on an e-scooter. Electric scooters are fun to ride but riding them without safety gear can be quite risky and dangerous. Wearing a helmet when riding on the road is important, to help prevent any injuries if an accident were to happen.
Electric scooters’ speed range is usually from 20mph-50mph. At these speeds, accidents that may occur can cause quite sever injuries. By wearing protective gear such as a helmet, you are taking all the necessary precautions and you are safeguarding yourself from being injured from the many larger vehicles that may be on the road such as cars and other motorized vehicles.
Although currently there are no helmets made specifically for electric scooters, Gottascoot offers you a uniquely designed helmet tailored to your needs, providing you with protection and safety when on the road.

Please be sure to remember these useful tips when buying and using a helmet or any protective gear:
- Ensure that your helmet suits and is fitted to you correctly. If loose, the helmet will most likely not provide you with much protection in an accident – not much use!
- Avoid purchasing second-hand helmets to prevent using an already damaged helmet by the previous owner- this will not have the same protective strength as a new helmet would!
- Always and immediately replace a helmet if it has been damaged.
