As long as you do not drive faster than you can run, stop the board by jumping off and running out in driving direction. Longboard riders like the so-called Coleman turn; you should practice that however at lower speeds. You can brake also with the foot rear - the low standing platform of the rolls rolls enables that: the heel remains on the board, let your point of the foot sharpen on the ground.
We were asked frequently why the rolls rolls does not have any brake. We developed and tested one. As soon as the driver braked not sensitivly enough (usually in fright situations), board and driver separated. Imagine you as in the train, the train brakes and there is no hold for you. In case of stronger braking you will adjust with a step in driving direction. You can not do this on the board.
Due to the easy run of his wheels, the rolls rolls can get very fast. Each speed, which is higher than you can run out, is too fast. You should wear complete, good protective clothing, which is: helmet, knee-pads, elbow guards and wrist guards. The trucks should be adjusted fix for higher rates.
Caution: at higher rates the wheels can slip away in curve or on slippery ground. Our wheels are optimized for easy run - not for adhesion in curves. Test the adhesive limit of the wheels at lower rates.
Is riding rolls rolls dangerous?
Yes it is. Just like snowboarding, longboarding, skating etc.. Do not overrate your riding talents (e.g. under the influence of alcohol). You should be in good physical condition and should know your limits or explore them slowly.
It may look more attractive, if you ride without protective clothing - be aware of the risk! We advise against riding without protective clothing.
Is the rolls rolls suitable for children?
The rolls rolls is not a toy for kids. It requires foresighted, responsible riding - that is not the strong point of children. However children learn to ride the rolls rolls very fast - please make sure that they ride only at a closed training area with few other rolling humans.
