To transform the Space Scooter from Kick mode to Ride mode is quite simple.

Your Scooter should like the picture below when you start.



If you need instructions on how to unfold your scooter to kick mode read the article on unpacking and setting up your scooter for the first time.

The first thing you need to do is find the silver quick release lever near the front wheel and open it.

        

Now locate the C button.



You will need to press this to allow you to pull the steering tube back from a completely upright vertical position to a slightly angled back position until you hear a click so signify it is locked in "riding" position.

Now to change the deck portion of the scooter to Ride mode you will have to locate the folding trigger midway up the steering tube. It has the "X580" badge sticker on it.


 
Now the next part requires a little coordination. 

Lift up the Folding Trigger like below.



and at the same time, reach down and grab the front of the deck with your other hand like below



and lift the scooter up so that at least the rear wheels come off the ground.

The combination of lifting up the folding trigger and pulling up on the front of the deck should make the deck rise up into riding position.

Now the scooter should look front one in the picture below.




Before riding it. Please close the silver quick release lever near the front wheel as shown below as this will further stabilize the steering column.

    

Now your Space Scooter is ready for Ride mode!
