Important notice to prevent warranty claims and potential injury.
Boxer products are pedal cycles and as a result need the same level of regular and knowledgeable maintenance that any other cycles needs. Failure to perform regular checks and maintenance to the cycle could result in the cycle becoming unsafe to ride. It is essential that before riding the user checks that all of the brakes work effectively and the cycle does not pull to the left or right. Tyres must also be kept inflated to the upper limit indicated on the side of the tyre – this must be done with a proper tyre pressure gauge or a pump with a tyre pressure gauge built in.
If you are not proficient or confident in cycle maintenance it is strongly advised that you submit your trike for a check at a local cycle store once every three months or whenever it fails to stop in good time when the brakes are applied or if any other unusual performance defects arise.
If you are technically proficient, regularly check the brakes and gears and if necessary adjust them in accordance with the user manual.
