About

Swifty Scooters was founded in 2011 by husband and wife entrepreneurs Camilla and Jason Iftakhar, the creators of the original folding adult scooter SwiftyONE. Swifty Scooters is built on their vision for a healthy, fun and safe way to navigate through congested cities.

Scooting inspires an adventurous spirit in your daily commute. Faster and more fun than walking and safer than cycling, scooting allows you to move through the city with ease - just step on and go anywhere!

Roll, unfold, step on and go!
Roll, unfold, step on and go!

Perfect for commuters, and for storing in small spaces, SwiftyONE's unique folding mechanism enables this adult sized scooter to be folded into a neat-sized package. Only 16cm wide when folded, it is designed to be rolled on its front wheel, and can easily be stored by hanging in a narrow hallway, slotted under a desk, or stowed away in the luggage compartment of a bus or train.

Scooting is great for working those core muscles, quads and glutes - the same muscles that get forgotten as we sit at our computers and in our cars. However, the main feedback we get from our customers is the big smile it gives them when they step on and go! The scoot-commute promotes a healthy body and mind.

BRITISH DESIGN - The innovative folding mechanism is unique to SwiftyONE, allowing you to fold your scooter in under 10 seconds.

LARGE WHEELS - SwiftyONE has 16 inch spoked wheels with high pressure pneumatic Kenda tyres (100psi), so it rides smoothly like a bike. SwiftyONE can handle mixed terrain with ease.

LIGHTWEIGHT - SwiftyONE has an aluminium frame and weighs 8.2kg (18lb), much lighter than a folding bike.

QUALITY - SwiftyONE is built to last. It has evolved from early prototypes developed by Jason and Camilla in 2011 and refined through rigorous testing, engineering innovation and by sourcing quality components.

STORAGE - It folds to a slim 160mm profile, allowing convenient storage on public transport, hanging in a narrow hallway, or slotting under a desk. 

ROLL - SwiftyONE can be easily rolled on its front wheel when manoeuvring through crowds.

COMFORT - SwiftyONE has adjustable handlebars, letting you choose the riding position that suits you. The frame geometry allows for an upright riding position, ideal for urban commuting and leisure.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION - We are spurred on by our small but extremely enthusiastic fan base here in the UK, thanks for the support!

So, this just arrived! The pre-production sample of SwiftyONE MK3. It has so many little updates and tweaks, all designed to make the most awesome scooter experience possible. The frame pictured below is polished aluminium - a beautiful finish. 

Our Special Edition has an aluminium frame hand polished to a beautiful finish, with black anodised rims, and green hubs and cable. This special edition will never be repeated and only available during this Kickstarter campaign.

Risks and challenges

Take comfort that Swifty Scooters is an existing business run by real people with passion, transparency and ambition. All the hard work has been done, final samples have been approved and production is ready. All we need to do is place the first order with our supplier. Sometimes however, unexpected things can happen. If there is a delay, it's for a good reason and most likely because we only ship when perfection is achieved. Let the good times ride and roll!
