Store Policies and Terms of Service
Evolve Skateboards are an exciting product and will provide you endless fun, please read ALL the information below before using the website, before ordering our products, and before using your board. By continuing to use this website or placing an order with us, you agree you have read, understood, and agree to all of the following terms and conditions.
Do not ride your board until you have read the following message :
- ALWAYS wear a helmet and other safety equipment when riding the board.
- Your board can lose brakes and power during your ride at any time due to low battery on the skateboard or remote. If this happens, its best to ride your board at speeds you are comfortable without power or brakes.
- Always obey and check the local road rules in your area for where you can ride and do not ride on busy roads with line markings.
- Riding in the fastest speed modes are very powerful and the trigger is highly sensitive, be sure to very gentle with the trigger control to avoid being thrown off the board. Start by trying to move as slowly as possible within these speed modes when both using the brakes and acceleration.
- Do not ride the board if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Do not ride the board in wet conditions. The board may slide from under your feet causing injury.
- ALWAYS respect pedestrians!!!!
- Always maintain your board, this is the owners responsibility. Always check all screws/nuts throughout the skateboard are tight regularly. Always clean your bearings for best roll and quietest/smoothest ride (including the bearing in the drive gear). Bearings get dirty and effect ride quality and may reduce battery performance and cause possible bearing failure.
- Avoid water - Riding in wet conditions is very dangerous and may cause injury. The board is not water proof. The electronic and mechanical components are subject to damage due to water. Please note; damage as a result of moisture exposure is not considered a manufacturer defect and not covered by warranty.
- Abuse - Do not jump on the board, ride off gutters or curbs, smash the board into hard objects, or drop the board on the ground for starting operation. Although the product has been made to handle rigorous riding, its still an electrical product and needs to be handled with care and respect. Our warranty does not cover significant impacts or damage resulting from any of the above.
- Whenever you ride the Evolve board, you risk serious injury or even death from loss of control, collisions and falls. To ride safely, you must read ALL instructions and safety messages and warnings in the manual.
- Riding on Hills - Riding on hills can be very dangerous, what goes up must come down! So if you ride up an insanely steep hill and you intend to ride down this same hill, this is extremely dangerous and you must know how to control your speed without the use of the electric brakes if ever there was a malfunction or there was a situation where the brakes fail.
