CAN I TAKE STIGO+ TO THE TRAIN OR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION?

Stigo scooters can be registered in all EU countries as L1e mopeds. As part of the type approval, we are required to add Certificate of Conformity (COC) document with each bike we sell.
IS THE HANDLEBAR OR THE SEAT ADJUSTABLE?
There is no need for that. The design of the Stigo is such that the rider’s weight is distributed between three supporting points: arms, legs and upper body – this reduces stress to muscles and back. This is the same concept which city bikes are based on. The muscles are perfectly built to work with the double S-shape, the ideal sitting position. Experts believe that your riding position is supporting the spine when you maintain the S-shape. The Stigo riding position is designed to support the natural S-shaped spine, allowing for even distribution of body weight. The Stigo riding position also allows for 80-90 degree angle between the arms and the upper body for good load distribution – this reduces the supporting work of shoulder, arm and back muscles. According to experts, a comfortable relaxed riding position is when the handlebar is not more than 10cm from the saddle level. That maintains the 90 deg angle between arm and body, allowing the body to relax while riding long distances.
DOES IT HAVE A SUSPENSION?
Due to the ergonomic seat and the inflatable tyres extra suspension is not needed.
WHAT ABOUT LEAVING A STIGO+ OUTSIDE? HOW CAN I LOCK IT OR PROTECT IT FROM RAIN?

Mostly yes – Stigo maximum speed 25 km/h and low riding position makes it very safe. In fact, Stigo is safer and lighter than most bicycles. However, you should acquaint yourself with local laws because driving regulations may differ even within the same country.
WHAT ABOUT THE SADDLE DESIGN?
The Stigo saddle is unlike any bicycle saddle. In fact, it’s designed to oppose many traditional cycling philosophies. A bicycle seat is designed for fast and efficient pedalling, hence the slimness and streamline structure of the traditional bicycle saddle. The Stigo is designed specifically to be as comfortable for long distance riding without the need to pedal. The broadness of the Stigo saddle supports more of the buttock which helps to relieve pressure from the soft tissue and organs. Also the curvature of the Stigo saddle prevents the rider from slipping off on inclines, similar to how bucket seats on a race car keeps the driver from being thrown sideways during turns.
