Next to cars and scooters, you can now also use Poppy kickscooters in Antwerp. Therefore Poppy is the first free-floating platform in the world that offers sharing cars, sharing scooters and sharing kickscooters in one platform.
As soon as the kickscooter is unlocked, you literally need to kick off as you’re used to with a non-electrical kickscooter. To gain speed, you push the button on the right handle. To keep your speed, keep the button pressed down. So if you’re driving, you’re constantly holding that button down.
You can brake in four different ways:
- Do you want to brake softly, then you can just let go of the speed button. That way you’ll gradually lose velocity.
- The second way is to press down the button on the left handle while releasing the right handle. This way, you’ll lose some speed quickly.
- By pressing the brake above the rear wheel, you’ll brake even better.
- You can brake best by combining all three above ways: release the speed button and press the brakes on the left handle and above the rear wheel.
The use of a helmet on a Poppy kick scooter is not obliged, but you’re always allowed to wear one. ⛑
