Your brakes may make some noise on your first few rides – this is completely normal. The noise should disappear after you use your brakes more. It can take approximately 250 km (155 miles) of riding for them to quieten – braking firmly on your first rides will speed up this process.

If your brakes are still noisy, they may need cleaning. The video below will show you how to clean and adjust your brakes. In the video we use an Electrified S2 bike, but you can use the same method for your VanMoof S3 or X3.


If you notice any oil leaking from your brakes or brake cables, please visit a VanMoof Brand Store or your local bike shop.
