Gallery: Swifty Scooters: Beautiful Hand-Made Adult Kick Scooters Desig...

 

A husband and wife team from the UK are the brains behind Swifty Scooters – a range of adult kick scooters that, through innovative design, “demonstrates a 21st century relevance to urban mobility, answering the need to save time and have fun.” Jason and Camilla Iftakhar, who are both graduates of the Royal College of Art, work together to design and hand-craft the scooters, whose parts are even locally sourced.

    i always use the rear brake …front brake only when you absolutely positively must stop [ little old lady ; locomotive etc ] and the road ahead must be free from bumps and pits …i have endoed on 3 different scooters ….slow learner …left hand must have been hovering over the front brake lever…the nanosec you hit a crunch, your left hand will instaclench too fast..you can’t stop it ; lockup the front clamp ; you then attempt to sprint through the ;handlebars …full finger gloves are best ..helmet that covers forehead is better than the styro cookie on top of your bean..

    No rear brake, will that send you over the handlebars in emergency braking situation?

    The man in video appears to be using it on a footpath, is that legal?

    Costs £500 in the UK, an expensive toy for some.

    O well, at least he is not wearing a helmet
