Full speed ahead
First of all, thank you again for believing in us and giving us a chance to change your life for the better.
We would like to share with you all important stages in OLAF's life, however we will be short and precise, don't worry:)
The Urban backpack will change
As briefly described in our first unlocked stretch goal we will make some design changes of Urban backpack. We are going to change backpack bottom and back side. Both new panels will be made out of combinations of EVA material and extra padding with specially chosen materials. Why? To improve backpack experience when used as a backpack only (not attached to Urban scooter).
Urban scooter improvements
We are going to change rear wheel from 72 to 110 mm diameter – same as front wheels; that means better driving experience, better braking and less of wheel wear and no significant extra weight.
Same bulk materials have already arrived (aluminum tubes), some semi-finished parts are waiting for assembly, others have just been ordered.
We have finally started with pre-order shop at our website olaf-scooter.com. For all of you who were a bit too late to get one via Kickstarter but would like to share the excitement and get the first OLAFs from production.
Some details and explanation
Shipping prices: we will ship to EU from home, to US/CANADA in bulk and have parcel delivery within the US, while the rest of the world will have package delivery from our home office in EU (most expensive).
Taxes: for customers within EU, we needed to include our 22% tax, for others there are no taxes included.
In pre-order phase, our online shop provider suggests two-phase online purchase; in the first phase there is price without taxes and shipping costs included, while in the second phase those costs are added (depends on the country you are from).
In general, prices in the pre-order shop are higher, however there are a few exceptions.
Within Kickstarter we tried to make best compromise as possible having the same net prices for EU, the US and the rest of the world.
Due to reasons listed above and rigidity of our online shop provider there are some price anomalies. We kindly ask for your understanding.
Wishing you a great day,
