THE CODE OF  GOOD CONDUCT AND DISCHARGE: TO MAKE YOUR HIKE PLEASURE

The Swincar has very good traction and torque. It behaves very easily when your gestures are gentle.

However, there are a few guidelines that must be followed:

 

1. Each significant OBSTACLE (dip, bump, fords, water spills etc.) is passed at walking pace, WITHOUT ANY MOMENTUM

The suspensions are very flexible to absorb the irregularities of the ground: in order not to break them, you have to drive at slow pace in the uneven sections of road.

 

2. HELMET is MANDATORY

3. I adopt a SOFT, CAREFUL driving style and a REGULAR speed

No "pumping" effect on the accelerator: PROGRESSIVENESS and SOFTNESS required. Regular speed avoids group "stop-and-start" effects

4. NO SLALOM, zigzag, no swerve: SOFT ride

Danger, especially on the road, of being "dragged " on the side (bounce effect due to the 4-wheel steering and the flexibility of the suspensions)

5. RIGHT hand: to accelerate  //  LEFT hand: to brake (front brakes)

I can of course complete the braking by using the rear brake (3/4 front - 1/4 rear ratio), but be careful, there is no ABS.

6. LOOK forward: anticipation

7. I keep a SAFETY DISTANCE uphill of 2 swincars minimum (5 meters) with the swincar in front of me and 4 swincars downhill.

I must be able to stop the vehicle in all circumstances. In the event of a collision with the Swincar in front of me, I am responsible, and the damage is invoiced to me (cf. CGV).

8. I always keep an EYE ON THE LEADER (anticipation)

(arm horizontal = I slow down / arm raised upwards = I brake)

I always remain visible from the rear-view mirrors of the Lead Partner.

9. I stay in SINGLE FILE, I do NOT OVERTAKE

I respect the order of swincars set by the Lead Partner.

10. To REPORT A PROBLEM if the voice does not carry enough: 3 honks / Silence / 3 honks

 

Failure to respect THE INSTRUCTIONS penalizes the whole group and spoils the hike.

If I "pump" too much on the accelerator, with nervous driving =>  Too much consumption: potential battery failure

 

IN CASE OF BREAKAGE =>  I pay for the repairs if I have not followed the instructions

Example: I overtake, I zigzag, I hit the rear of the vehicle in front of me, I don't stop before crossing an obstacle, etc.

 

NON-RESPECT of the instructions =>  the leader can decide to shorten the hike, this penalizes the whole group

 

  

I have read the General Conditions of Sale and Use as well as the Code of Good Conduct and I undertake to respect them.

I confirm that I hold the drinving license and carry it with me during the hike for possible presentation to any police request.
