New Zealand is known as the Land of the Long White Cloud, which refers to the cloud formations which helped early Polynesian navigators find the country. And ever since, the desire to find, to search, to seek grew into the culture of New Zealanders. Indeed, the Kiwis (as New Zealanders are often called) have a strong culture of adventure and outdoor activities. And to make things more convenient and accessible, many Kiwis love to explore their beautiful landscapes by using the best electric scooters.
No wonder why Mearth Electric Scooter, the Pioneer in Australian Electric Scooter is welcomed in by its neighboring country, New Zealand. Quite frankly, New Zealand is a remote island—one of the last sizable territories suitable for habitation to be populated and settled—and in fact, lies more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) southeast of Australia, but still, it is its nearest neighbor.
From Mearth, with love
As Mearth is welcomed in, the well-known Australian brand, presents New Zealand with 4 of its amazing electric scooter series: the entry-level Mearth S series, the long-range Mearth RS series, the flagship Mearth GTS Evo series and the Mearth Cyber – all in its latest 2023 version! But that’s not all, Mearth also presents its electric scooter approved helmets: the Mearth Airlite Electric Scooter Helmet and the Mearth Nutshell Helmet, both of which meets the AS/NZS 2063:2008 standard, which is designed to provide adequate protection to the head if an incident arises – we pray not! Avail of this, because Mearth created it for you, with love.
Why You Should Buy the Mearth Electric Scooter Helmet
However, electric scooters can be dangerous, especially if riders don’t wear helmets. In this article, we’ll explore ten reasons why it’s important for New Zealanders to wear approved electric scooter helmets.
- Protecting Your Head and Your Brain
The most obvious reason why Mearth created an approved e-scooter helmet is to protect your head from injury. In the event of an accident, a helmet can absorb the impact and reduce the risk of head injury or concussion. Concussions may happen in unforeseen accidents and in relation to this, so can brain injury! The brain is one of the most important and delicate parts of the body. In the event of an accident, even a minor injury to the brain can have serious and long-lasting consequences. Wearing an approved electric scooter helmet can help protect your head and brain and reduce the risk of injury. Mearth believes that New Zealanders value their health and safety, so it makes sense to wear a helmet when riding an electric scooter.
- Avoiding Serious Injuries
In addition to protecting your head and brain from injuries (I consider this serious already but maybe this needs to be emphasized more), an electric scooter accident can also cause serious injuries to other parts of the body – or even the whole body. Wearing an approved e-scooter helmet can reduce the risk of facial injuries, fractures, and other serious injuries. Best if you can add in safety gear to your riding. Going back, by wearing a helmet, you’re taking steps to protect yourself from the worst-case scenario.
- It’s the Law, so comply
Upon research, in New Zealand, wearing an approved e-scooter helmet is mandatory when riding an electric scooter. If you’re caught without a helmet, you could face a fine of up to $100 or even more, depending on the severity of your disobedience or how much of the law you broke. So not only is it important for your safety, it’s also important to comply with the law.
- Setting a Good Example
As a responsible citizen of New Zealand, aside from being a law-abiding citizen, it is important to set a good example for others as well. By wearing an approved electric scooter helmet, you’re showing others that you take safety seriously and you encourage others to do the same. Leading by example is a good reflection of you and can help others and result in making New Zealand a safer place for everyone. And if you start a good example, you are part of the good change in this world and it can make a difference as a whole.
- It Doesn’t Take Much Time
Putting on a helmet only takes a few seconds, but it could save your life. This cannot be emphasized enough, your safety is the utmost priority of Mearth and should be for you too. It’s a small inconvenience that can make a big difference in the event of an accident. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind and safety.
- Feeling More Confident
It is true, when you follow the law, you will feel more free because you know you are doing the right thing. And doing the right thing just gives one great confidence. The right thing is wearing the approved helmet because you will feel in control of your life when riding an electric scooter. You’re less likely to feel nervous or distracted when you’re wearing the approved e-scooter helmet, which can give you clarity, can help you make better decisions as you go and avoid accidents.
- It’s Stylish – Never go out of style
Last but not least, let me just add, the Mearth e-scooter approved helmets are stylish yet simple. So don’t worry you can look good while you stay safe. If you want, you can even unleash your artisticness and choose a Mearth helmet that matches your personality and style, and vamp it up (just paint though, nothing too fancy and protruding that may distract or bother others and cause an accident). But if you choose simplicity and stick with the stylish yet simple approved e-scooter helmets of Mearth, that’s fine too, and that can be great as well – there is beauty in simplicity afterall. Whatever it is just remember not to sacrifice safety for fashion.
Let me leave you with this, just remember, wearing an approved electric scooter helmet is essential for every e-scooter rider, even New Zealanders who want to stay safe while exploring their beautiful country. It’s not only the law, but it’s also the responsible and smart thing to do. By following this list of 7, you’ll be able to enjoy your electric scooter rides with peace.
