“It was a dream come true and I quickly got the hang of it… riding is all I can think about” – Bryan F. CALIFORNIA
A common question we receive is, “How long does it take to learn the LEIF?”
While some depends on your physical shape and ability, more depends on your desire to ride and learn! Riding the LEIF is a lifetime of progression, with the ability to develop skills and a riding style unique to you. Progressing on the LEIF comes in phases, and here’s our best shot at describing the phases of riding using our customer examples.
The phases are measured by our customers in battery cycles – which is the amount of riding for one battery charge. If you are commuting with LEIF, then 2 battery cycles or more per day is very typical.
Phase 1: Learning on the first few days (1-5 battery cycles)
