Aussie Company Sets Out To Make A Better 'Adult' Scooter

The E’lution EVO Commuter Scooter is a revolution in commuter scooter design utilising advanced technology and latest ‘A-Grade’ materials. The EVO model range boasts FOUR patented features.

Today’s kick scooters are not just made for kids. There is an increasing demand from the adult sector for manufacturers to design and build more suitably sized and styled kick scooters.

Our E’lution EVO kick scooter range is what adult riders and enthusiasts have been waiting for. Packed with the latest technical features they are Fun, Fast, Functional, Convenient & Stylish. EVO scooters are ideal for the busy city or town commuter and the free spirited recreational rider who appreciates excellence in design.

We want you to be one of the first people in the world to own your very own ‘revolutionary designed’ E’lution Evo scooter and at the same time help make our dream a reality.  We hope you like what you see.

REWARDS

ALL OR NOTHING

If you’re a regular Kickstarter visitor, you probably already know that Kickstarter is an “all or nothing system” which means that if we don’t achieve our funding goal, no money is collected and the project does not proceed. So please, help to back our project. Even if you can’t back our project personally, you can still help by spreading the word to your friends, family and social network. Sharing this project with friends and family takes only a second, and it would mean the world to us.

HOW KICKSTARTER WILL HELP

Product design and development is an expensive and time consuming process. Here are some areas where the Kickstarter funding will be spent.

  • Tooling and Jigs. We need to commission and pay for tooling, more than forty sets in total and jigs for each of our EVO Scooters.
  • Minimum Order Quantities. Manufacturers require minimum order quantities (MOQ) in order for us to provide you our backers with the sharpest prices for your rewards.  MOQs must be committed to up front with advance payments before they run the products.

WHO ARE E'LUTION SCOOTERS?

Risks and challenges

We are experienced industrial designers/problem solvers and innovators that have been developing and marketing products for more than three decades.

We have also successfully delivered on our previous Kickstarter campaign for the NU Lifestyle Card Holder. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nulifestyle/nu-lifestyle-card-holder-wallet-take-what-you-need

Here are just a few of comments from our NU Lifestyle campaign...

Veen Senn on Dec 11, 2013
Just received my limited edition Persona and had a blast using it today. This has been one of the very best Kickstarter projects I backed. Kevin had constant communication with his backers from the get go, had regular, warts-and-all updates, was committed to the highest quality and still delivered on schedule. What more could any backer ask for? The green sheen on my Persona is luminous and looks magnificent. Thank you, Kevin.

Xiao Mu on Sep 21, 2013
Oh, it is my fault. I just asked here on delivery time. 2 hours later I received mine in the UK! It is Saturday today, so did not expect any post. Also, no email notification in advance. I am expecting another logistics from HK (therefore first of all thought this was that one, just curious about why labelled as AUD value...hah). Have no idea when it has been posted but it has already ahead of schedule!

Really a surprise from you, Kevin. The NU really impresses me not only because its delicate, handy, stylish design, but also the blue color I pick up. This is the exact color I am looking for, as I like it since very young. The holder looks sturdy, with a comfortable feeling when holding in hand. Three cards are better, four are the most. It is inconvenient to stash cash in it, but as a card holder, it does the work as you promise. I think NU is even a top-class accessory with IPHONE multicolored 5c (although I won't buy c, anyway..)

The communication with Kevin is amazing, he is one of the most excellent designers in KS I have ever seen before. Do hope the rest categories of NU proceed smoothly and I will definitely get back to NU again, and back Kevin's any new projects in KS without doubt!
Appreciate for such a brilliant creation.

Hi Kevin and the rest of the team,
It's been a while since a got my UNO, but I juset wanted to thank you for a wonderful wallet. Both quality, design and easy of use is just great!

Your project was the first one I pledged, and it has become more or less a small addiction :o)

Hope to see more projects from you guys!

Absolutely loving my Persona. Definitely looking to buy a few as presents!

Our ethos is all about critical attention to detail, so we have spent nearly five years designing, developing, prototyping and refining no less than eighteen iterations of E'lution EVO Scooters to make sure that all the issues and little details are resolved prior to going into production. Moreover, we will be lifecycle testing up to 30 Pilot Run pre-production EVOs in order to make sure that they can withstand the rigours of daily use and meet the exacting quality standards we demand before we start producing your Kickstarter Rewards.

We also have long term relationships (more than 10 years) with vendor partners in Shenzhen China so when we say we can deliver this product on time and to the very high standards we set and you expect, you can back us with confidence.

Finally, we believe in being transparent and open with our supporters, so, in the unlikely event there is a little hiccup, then we have the experience and know-how to resolve it and keep everyone updated and informed.
