Design + Determination
How it all began…
If you’ve ever tried to carry a couple of bags of groceries or a case of beer while riding your bike, you know it can be quite a pain. Carrying a watermelon is much worse. Anyway, we started building cargo scooters because we thought there was a better way to make local trips with your belongings.
Although it’s possible to modify your bicycle with large racks, multiple baskets, or a bulky trailer, you can’t wheel it into the supermarket with you, carry it up a flight of stairs easily, or ride it through a crowded sidewalk. Also a lot of road and mountain bike riders don’t want to add all that stuff to their $2500 space age vehicle.
With that in mind, the team at Nimble Scooters created the world’s first production cargo scooter. We’re not out to replace the bicycle for longer trips. Instead our scooters are a great way to carry your stuff when going to the store, making deliveries or working in a warehouse.
Flexible, multi-faceted and reactive
We are a team of Californians with a mixture of cultural backgrounds, yet we are close-knit and our common strength is the passion to build the best cargo scooters in the world. We started off as a small team that originated via California State University Long Beach’s Industrial Design Program, and has since incorporated new partners with the best skills to bring our product to full development.
Nimble Scooters has been around since the Spring of 2011, when we started building our first prototypes in Southern California. After three years of test batches and reconfiguration, we launched our finalized production-ready model in Spring 2014 in Amsterdam at Fietsvak and in New York City at WantedDesign. Since then, we’ve been getting tremendous feedback from all over the world and we are determined to continue this adventure bringing the best quality and functional cargo scooters to market.
Not just about a scooter
Urban mobility & making the future city
We are on the cusp on a large wave of widespread micro-transit. As cities become smarter, more efficient for bicycles and more accessible to makers and crafters, city governments are having to work with citizens to make this urban movement as mobile as it wants to be. Urban areas in the United States and Europe alike are facing more and more businesses and entrepreneurs starting new activities in cycle-logistics, alternative transportation vehicles as well as new ways to share, travel and collaborate.
At Nimble Scooters, we feel that we are a part of this and want to show our active support in these movements. We attend trade shows, festivals and conference to talk about our solution for people and businesses in their efforts to make their environments more pleasant and accessible.
