About this project
BOOOOOOOM (USA): "I can see why the invention has already destroyed its $120k goal!"
UNCRATE (USA): "While it might take an illusion to make you look cool on a Segway, the same can't be said for the Scrooser."
TECHCRUNCH (GB): "While seeing grown men on scooters is always comical, this powerful hybrid could make scooting cool again."
GIZMAG (USA): "Kick at the ground to move it along, its motor amplifying the power of your kick."
WHITEZINE (USA): "the Scrooser is a kind of Harley Davidson for sidewalks"
SPIEGEL ONLINE (GER): „Schick sieht er aus, der Scrooser, optisch irgendwo angesiedelt zwischen einem Tretroller, einer Harley Davidson und dem Batpod aus "The Dark Knight".
Enjoy a few second looks while embracing urban transportation on a sexy, efficient, and responsible Scrooser. While riding in Eco mode, one battery charge will last an estimated 25 days in the urban environment. Scrooser is a mobility solution that does not require a license or a helmet.
Although traffic congestion cannot be solved by eMobility alone, the focus of Scrooser aims to be more intelligent by moving riders through urban areas efficiently, saving time in covering short distances.
Based on the classic scooter design, we developed a modern lifestyle city scooter. The impulse drive electric motor augments the energy generated by the foot pushing off. Each premium quality Scrooser reflects true high-tech craftsmanship made in Germany.
KICKSTART YOUR SCROOSER
Over the last two years, we have designed and built an innovative solution which instigates the practicality of urban mobility. We are now ready to share the final design result with the world. We are offering Scrooser to the early adaptive kickstarter community to find out who is interested in riding a Scrooser as well as where and why.
We're just a small team with a big idea and are interested in finding the financial supporters to raise the amount of capital needed to establishing the Scrooser as a product in a global market. The additional supplementary financing we are seeking will finally allow us to concentrate on all the details that still need to be worked on like the modification of the frame or the improvement of the driving dynamics. Furthermore, we have to fulfill our engineering obsession of perfecting the impulse drive electric motor. It will take us and our engineers a lot of work, power and money to be able to start with the serial production to share Scrooser with the rest of the world.
As we prepare for the production of our first run of 150 Scroosers we are excited for all the potential backer support and commitment. As limited amounts of rewards become sold out, we will offer new rewards so backers will still be able to preorder a Scrooser with a later production time and respective delivery date.
THE SCROOSER STORY
The Mobility Solution Company IFPEG is a tech startup founded in Nov 2011. Our aspirations reside in designing and developing new means of transport. We remain focused on solutions that are marketable, innovative, and suitable for daily use. In March 2012, we embarked upon the Scrooser project which has evolved from an idea into a fully functional riding prototype. During this time, building renovations were completed and we moved into the Scrooser Manufactory on Wilsdruffer Straße 11, Dresden, Germany in Dec 2012.
In Feburary 2013, we filmed Scrooser on the vibrant streets of Barcelona. The overwhelming amount of questions by fascinated pedestirans and thier excitement of riding a Scrooser led us to prepare for our first project on Kickstarter. At the moment, we are perfecting the electronics of the progressive impulse drive electric motor while finalizing manufacturing logistics. Scrooser has just been nominated in the category "mobility" for the GreenTec Awards 2013, which honors pioneers who are committed to a more environmentally conscious future.

Risks and challenges
Successful kickstarter campaigns sometimes have encountered problems when taking their alpha and beta products into production. This includes finding reliable suppliers and meeting quality control standards necessary for engineering products for mass-production. Organizing a smooth execution will be absolutely essential to overcoming such risks, and we have been diligently working for months negotiating with suppliers, testing component quality, and building a team that can execute on our promises. Our plans are in place, and a successfully funded project will provide the resources needed to execute them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
