Every day, people put way too much weight on their shoulders and backs without realizing it, leading to discomfort and possible pain later on in life. Outside of some sort of clunky trolley, there isn’t much that can be done about it. At least, that was the case until the Nimble Urban Scooter came along.
The follow-up to the Nimble Scooter Classic, the Nimble Urban Scooter is a slimmed down version of its predecessor that focuses on a more agile ride while retaining the versatility of carrying a wide array of stuff. Its front loading cargo rack features custom made bungee straps to secure all sorts of boxes — even fitting bike accessories — while its linked steering system lets riders perform sharp turns safely.
For increased portability, the scooter folds in half — although it keeps a pretty awkward shape when folded. Despite that, it’s deceptively well-made, able to carry over 50 pounds and supports up to 300. Interested backers can grab a Nimble Urban Scooter for $199, $50 off its eventual retail price. It’s slated to ship July 2016 should the Indiegogo campaign raise $20,000 by May 13th, 2016.
As a nice upgrade from the Classic, the newer Nimble does away with the singular focus of other scooters to be as minimal as possible. While those other ones may offer longer distances, it’s nice to see something made for Sunday afternoon errands or less intense daily commutes, for example.
