The throttle allows you to activate the motor with or without pedaling. Locate the throttle mechanism adjacent to the right handle and gently twist clockwise to become acquainted with motor power released by the throttle. Turn further clockwise to increase power until you reach a comfortable speed.
To activate cruise-control, you must first pedal at a speed faster than 5mph, then press and hold the down arrow button for 3 seconds to engage cruise control. Your motor will work together with your battery to maintain your speed. To disengage cruise-control, accelerate using the throttle, or squeeze the brake lever.
