Please follow these step-by-step instructions for operating your Ventura Beach E Bike by SONDORS:

  1. Step over your SONDORS in preparation to ride, and securely place both feet on the ground.
  2. Locate the thumb throttle on the right side of the handlebars.
  3. Locate the power/control switch for your LCD screen on the left side of the handlebars. Hold down the center power button "i" until the LCD screen turns on. Use the up/down arrows to set your desired level of pedal assist (PAS). **Please note that when the pedal assist is set at level 0 (zero) your SONDORS will not move, this will help prevent forward acceleration caused by accidentally hitting the throttle.**
  4. When prepared to ride, use up arrow to set LCD at PAS level 1 or higher. You can either start your SONDORS ride by gently pressing the throttle or just start pedaling.
  5. You can adjust the level of PAS by pressing the up or down button on the LCD control panel. Level 1 being the lowest level of assist and 5 being the highest. You can use your throttle while in any level of PAS.
  6. If you have a 7-speed gear shifter, you can manually shift gears while in any level of PAS, and continue to use the throttle at anytime.
  7. Upon arrival back to the store, simply turn off the power at the power/control switch by pressing the "i" button between the + and – buttons. Please return the bike to the store attendant in the dedicated location.
