How to Fold Your GOTRAX Electric Scooter - GOTRAX

All of GOTRAX's electric scooters for adults feature a folding mechanism however, the process for folding an electric scooter will vary depending on the specific model. Don't worry though we're here to give you a step by step guide on how to properly use your folding adult e-scooter for easy carrying and storage.

  1. Turn off Your E-Scooter: Simply press the power button to turn your e-scooter off before folding it since your ride won't be in use there is no point in wasting the battery. 

  2. Release the folding mechanism: This varies depending on which model of GOTRAX electric scooter for adults you have. Please follow the instructions as follows. 

  3. GXL V2, Rival, Apex, Apex LE, XR Ultra, XR Elite, XR Elite Max, G3 Plus: For these models, you will have to release the folding mechanism and safety pin at the same time. The safety pin (pictured below) is located on the left hand side of your e-scooter near the front wheel.

    You find the folding mechanism (pictured below) at the base of the tiller on the front wheel. You'll have to pull up the silver tab at the front and pull the latch down to fully release the tiller/handlebar assembly.

  7. Fold the handlebars: Once the mechanism is released, you will be able to fold the handlebars down towards the deckboard. The tiller hook will then lock into place on the fender latch. You should hear a distinctive click or snap when it is locked into place. 
  8. How to Unfold: Just follow these steps in reverse and you'll be ready to ride! Please note for the models mentioned in #3 that you have to press down on the rear of the fender latch NOT the fender to unhook your tiller. 

There you have it. If you have any other questions be sure to reach out to us through our social media pages or Customer Support! Remember to ride responsibly and always wear a helmet!
