About

Embrace All-Road Electric Freedom with style. The eGroov has two powerful Electric Hub Engines (2x 250w) located in the wheels that will take you anywhere. 

Very robust, the eGroov is almost exclusively (with the exception of the frame and the mudguards) made out of premium existing parts. This limits drastically production problems and increase its overall quality.

Thanks to its adjustable handlebar everyone can drive it comfortably. The handlebar can be adjusted both horizontally and vertically (moving from 100cm (40inch) to 120cm (48inch)

YOUR REWARDS

You will find here below a detailed explanation on the different pledges we are offering during the Kickstarter Campaign:

THE STORY

Two years ago we started working on a dream: Creating the perfect All Road Electric Scooter. We wanted to create a Scooter that would be very easy to ride, that was powerful enough to carry two persons or important payloads and probably most importantly: be beautiful.

We had to go through numerous design adjustments and prototypes before reaching the perfect design. Below are some of the versions we created during the process:

 TIMELINE

THE TEAM

Risks and challenges

Going from a prototype to a production line with a finished product is always a challenge. One of our team members (Kevin) knows that very well as he has already managed two successful Kickstarter Campaigns (iDockAll & iMacompanion) and completely fulfilled them.

With a lot of lessons learned during productions processes those two campaigns that the idea of using a maximum of existing high quality components emerged: this would drastically lower production cost and risk of problems. On top of that the frame and the mudguards are custom made for perfect fitting.

We also believe that this approach (using 90% of existing components) will allow us to make a product that is more robust and easier to fix if a part breaks down. It can just be replaced at a bike repaire shop.
