The Nimble Urban Scooter

Nimble Scooters is about getting things done the fun way. The world’s first Urban Cargo Scooter.

We think scooters are awesome. Help us bring the world’s first cargo scooters to you!

The Nimble Urban is the first scooter of its kind. It’s designed to be the best way to travel short distances and carry over 50 pounds (25kg) of cargo. We’ve been making scooters for four years in California and now we need your help in launching our best scooter yet. 

 

The Nimble Urban Scooter

 

  • Simpler than a bike – Easier than a bike, smaller than a bike. Designed for short trips when all you need is a little extra speed. Zero maintenance and no grease
  • Easy to carry and store – Folds up and can be taken inside easily. Fits in most trunks and the tiniest of apartments!
  • Fits all sizes –  One size fits all with the Nimble Urban’s adjustable handle bars (up to 6’4″ / 1m96)
  • Carries more than you can – The Nimble Urban can hold baskets, bags, dogs, tools, anything! It can support over 300 pounds (~136kg) and fits standard bike baskets, racks and bags

 

  • Designed with a purpose – We’ve designed the Nimble Urban to be perfect for distances too far to walk but not far enough to be worth taking a car or bike. It’s more versatile, more functional and more nimble than any alternative on the market
 

For Work and Play

The Nimble Urban’s simple design makes it fit in anywhere. Whether around town or going to work, you’ll enjoy your ride. With our team based in California and Paris, we set out to make a sleek, functional and stylish design which holds up to daily use. 
 

Over 50 pounds (25kg) of it! 

From groceries to dogs, the Nimble Urban can carry whatever you need either on its front flat rack or through standard bicycle bags and accessories. Your imagination is the limit with the Nimble Urban! 

Easy and Exciting

At its core, the Nimble Urban is fun. It’s agile, quick and has a very smooth ride. You can wear any type of clothing without worrying about it getting stuck in gears, and never have to pump the tires. There’s nothing easier than getting on a scooter and taking it for a spin!

Carry and Store It!

The Nimble Urban folds making it easy to carry and store.  It will fit in your car’s trunk, office, train or even the tiniest of apartments.

In return for your contribution, we have carefully selected and designed a few gifts that you can wear, ride and show your support for Nimble Scooters!

The Indiegogo campaign will end in May and based on our experience making scooters for the last four years we know that we can begin manufacturing in June. You can expect your Nimble Urban to arrive end of June/July depending on where you live!

 

Made in California
All Nimble Urban scooters will be made in our cutting edge manufacturing space in Orange County, California. We do not outsource. Making scooters is what we do and we are damn good at it. 

A Proven Team

Nimble Scooters has been making scooters for large industrial and warehouse spaces since 2012. Since then, we’ve noticed a lot of interest from families and individuals and so we designed a more consumer focused product, the Nimble Urban. Our team has decades of combined experience launching automotive, bicycle and other consumer products. Scooters have been our specialty for the last four years giving us the production know-how  required to deliver these kick ass kick-scooters to you this summer. 

Why We Need Your Help

We need $20,000 for the tooling required to make this unique scooter. This money will be used to purchase raw materials, packaging, tooling, and various smaller parts like wheels, grip tape, hand grips and quick-releases. The scooter goes through several steps of manufacturing including cutting, tumbling, welding and powder coating which all add up to the making of a Nimble Urban.

FAQ

How do I choose the colour I want?
At the end of the campaign, we will send you a questionnaire about the color you´d like for your Nimble Urban.
