As heavy rains and floods continue to affect Nairobi, we understand the challenges many are facing.

Amidst these conditions, here is the important guidance from Roam on riding your Roam Air electric motorcycle safely.

First and foremost, yes, you can ride your Roam Air safely during this weather. Our motorcycle is built to withstand rainy conditions, with an IP64 rating that ensures it can handle the rain without any issues and a waterproof storage that keeps your stuff safe and dry.

However, there are some measures you should take to ensure your safety and the longevity of your Roam Air:

1️⃣Stay Informed: Keep an eye on weather forecasts and local advisories. If conditions are too severe, it's best to stay indoors and avoid riding altogether.

2️⃣Mind the Depth: While Roam Air can handle shallow flooding and puddles up to 40cm, it's important not to venture into deeper water. Avoid areas with fast-moving water or unknown depths to prevent accidents.

3️⃣Battery Care: During wet weather, make sure the lower battery is plugged in to maintain the waterproofing of the battery connector. This simple step can help prevent any electrical issues down the road.

4️⃣Safety First: Always prioritize your safety and the safety of those around you. Wear appropriate protective gear, including a helmet and reflective clothing, and be mindful of other road users, especially in reduced visibility conditions.

5️⃣Community Support: Look out for one another during these challenging times. Check in on neighbors and offer assistance where possible.

Together, we can navigate through these difficulties with resilience and compassion.

As we navigate the rainy season, let's take care of each other and ensure that our journeys are safe and enjoyable. Remember, your well-being is paramount.

Stay safe, stay dry, and keep riding responsibly.
