Your new scooter is heavy so double teaming this is a best practice.
Placeyour Cypress on flat ground and use the kick stand to balance it upright. Setting up your Cypress on the side of a steep hill is not advised. Watching your new Cypress tumble down a hill will make you sad.
Liftthe stem of your Cypress until it is fully upright
Securethe stem in riding position byslidingthe stem securing collar down the stem until it is firmly against the stem base.
Tightenthe 3 rotating buckles until it takes significant pressure to push the collar locking bracket snug against the collar.
WARNING: Always ensure the stem securing collar is fully tightened and secure before riding your Cypress scooter to prevent the stem from folding while riding.
Pullthe main wire out from the stem.
Connectthe main wire from the stem into the wire in the handlebars
Placethe handle bars on top of the stem. Make sure the headlight is facing the front of the of your scooter. It’s a lot easier to ride your Cypress with the controls facing you.
Use the included multi-tool toscrewin the 4 supplied screws to secure the handlebars to the stem.
Insert the top 2 screws followed by the bottom 2 screws. Do not insert the screws one side at a time.
Your Cypress electric scooter is equipped with an Advanced Settings & Operations menu which you can use to customize certain aspects of your riding experience. Sadly, no one has yet been able to order french fries from this menu. We are working on it.
To enter the Advanced Settings menu of your Cypress, ensure it is first powered on.
Press the power button 3 times in rapid succession.
Once the Advanced Settings menu is open it will default to the main display if no activity occurs for 5 seconds. Re-open the Advanced Settings menu by again pressing the power button 3 times.
Once the Advanced Settings menu is open, you can cycle through the settings using a single press of the power button.
Once you have cycled to the setting you wish to adjust press and hold the power button for 2 seconds. This will cause the setting number on the display (P5 for example) to blink.
To adjust your desired setting, first ensure it is blinking. Press the power button one press at a time to cycle through the available options for that setting.
Once you have settled on the desired option for that setting, leave it for 3 seconds. This will save the setting and you will be sent back to the Main Display screen
To adjust another Advanced Setting simply press the power button three times and repeat the above process.
Advanced Settings List:
P1 Speed/Odometer units. 0 = km 1 = miles
P2 System voltage. 36V 48V Cypress is 48V.
WARNING: DO NOT CHANGE
P3 Tire diameter. 6 8 10 12 15 Cypress is 8.
WARNING: DO NOT CHANGE
P4 Motor magnetic pole. Default is 30.
WARNING: DO NOT CHANGE
P5 Cruise control. 0 = Off 1 = On
To activate cruise control while riding, press and hold the throttle in the same spot for 8 seconds. The cruise control icon will appear on the main display.
When you release your thumb from the throttle your Cypress will now maintain a constant speed.
To exit cruise control simply depress either brake lever or press the throttle.
CAUTION: Using cruise control provides the rider with a different riding experience. Be very aware that if cruise control is active, your Cypress WILL NOT slow down upon releasing the throttle after holding it down for more than 8 seconds.
Always riding with fingers resting on both brake levers is particularly important when using cruise control.
P6 Start mode. 0 = Instant start 1 = Kick start
Instant start means the motor will engage as soon is the throttle is depressed, even if the scooter is at a full stop.
Kick start means you must manually move the scooter (using a traditional scooter kicking motion) to 3km/h or more for the throttle to engage the motor.
CAUTION:Instant start can cause unexpected motor engagement if the throttle is accidentally depressed when your Cypress is not in motion.
P7 Speed limit percentage. 0-100 0 = No power 100 = Maximum power (top speed)
A useful setting if you wish to restrict the top speed of your Cypress for a new or inexperienced rider.
P8 Auto shutoff time in minutes. 0-20 Minutes
Time it takes for the scooter to shut off if left unattended.

How To Ride Guide
Hi! So you wanna ride an electric scooter!? Don’t worry you got this!
Follow along with this guide to get you riding faster, and safer!
Got your helmet on? No? It’s ok, we’ll wait while you put it on. Good, that’s better.
Turn on your Cypress and check the battery level. Are you on the last two or three bars of battery capacity? Uh-oh. You’ll want to charge up for an hour or two before heading out. Hitting hills or colder weather can drain your battery very quickly when the battery is below 50%.
If your battery does die while you are out, don’t worry - you’re not stranded! Your Cypress will now operate as a regular push scooter.
Time to ride! Just like riding a bicycle, a little bit of speed goes a long way in helping you keep your balance.
Begin by placing on foot on the deck of your Cypress.
With both hands on the handlebars, push off with the foot that is on the ground, gaining a little bit of momentum to help you stay upright.
**If you are in kick start mode you will need to be at 3km/h or higher for the throttle to engage the motor.**
Gently depress the throttle with your thumb to begin accelerating as youplace your push-off foot on the scooter deck.
Best practice for control and balance is to ride with one foot in front of the other.
Riding with both feet side by side is NOT recommended.
Be sure to have both knees slightly bent to help absorb bumps.
Hey look - you’re riding!
To slow down gradually, simply release the thumb throttle to disengage the motor.
WARNING: Be aware that this will not happen if using cruise control. To disengage cruise control press the throttle again or depress either of the brake levers.
Practice stopping by using the hand brake levers.
The disc and electronic brakes on your Cypress are strong. Be sure to brace yourself in the event of the need to stop suddenly.
Always begin braking by using the rear (left) brake. Come to a complete stop by adding the front (right) brake.
Never use only the front (right) brake to stop, particularly at high speeds. This can cause you to fall over the front handlebars.
To turn, angle the handlebars slightly in the direction that you wish to go.
Avoid sudden sharp turns as this can lead to falls. Despite what TV tells us, it’s not funny when people fall down.
Avoid turning on surfaces covered with sand, wet leaves, gravel or similar debris as this can lead to a loss of traction and a fall.
As you get more familiar with riding, use the higher speed modes. Speed mode ECO will be the slowest acceleration and lowest top speed. Speed mode D will be moderate. Speed mode S will be the fastest.
Using speed mode S continuously will draw more power from the battery than riding in the other modes. You will not get the same riding range as you would if riding in mode ECO or D.
Lastly, and VERY importantly, do remember that pedestrians always have the right of way. Be a nice and courteous person. Everyone in the alternative transport movement is in it together and, as a group, we want to create positive vibes as the personal electric vehicle community grows and thrives.
Time for some more don’ts! (Don’t you love lawyers?)

Use a soft damp cloth to wipe dust, dirt or debris from your scooter frame, standing deck and display.
Keep the brakes and motor clean and free from built up dirt and dust.
Use a small soft brush such as a toothbrush or similar to remove caked on dirt.
Neveruse cleaning solutions that are alcohol or ammonia based. Doing so may damage your scooter and/or lead to corrosion.
Neveruse a pressure washer or a hose to wash your scooter. Doing so may lead to permanent damage to your battery and/or electrical components and/or void your warranty.
Maintaining Your Scooter:
Using your supplied tool(s), once a month check that all screws are tight. Tighten any screws that may have loosened.
Periodically (once a month or less) perform a visual and performanceinspection of all components to ensure they are in original working order. This includes all lights, folding mechanisms, stem safety latches, brake levers, brakes, throttle, power/mode buttons and information displays. If you suspect any component is not working as it should, bring or ship your scooter to eevee’s for servicing by a certified technician.
Your scooter is equipped with mechanical disc brakes that may need an occasional adjustment.
To tighten mechanical disc brakes pleasesee this video.(Insert link to video of how to adjust disc brakes)
Electronic and drum brakes do not need any regular maintenance. If you suspect your electronic or drum brakes are not working as they should, bring or ship your scooter to eevee’s for servicing by a certified technician.
You scooter is equipped with solid tires and do not require any maintenance. If you suspect your tires are not performing as they should, bring or ship your scooter to eevee’s for a tire inspection from a certified technician.
Storing Your Scooter:
Alwaysstore your scooter indoors. Damp environments and extreme temperatures can cause permanent damage to many components of your scooter.
Store your scooter in a dry location with a temperature between 15-25C.
The rule of thumb is if you would be uncomfortable, so will your scooter.
Neverstore your scooter, even if only for short periods (a few hours or overnight), if it is wet. Moisture may seep into electrical components leading to corrosion and/or permanent damage and void your warranty. Always thoroughly dry your scooter before storing.
Do not leave your scooter plugged in for more than 12 hours at a time.
If you will not be using your scooter for an extended period of time (>2 months) be sure to store it with between 30-60% battery charge.
After 2 months of storage, charge your scooter to no more than 60% if you plan on continuing to leave your scooter unused. Your scooter will be sad, but its battery will be happy.
Allowing your scooter’s battery to completely discharge can cause permanent damage to your battery.
