THE CREATION OF A DESIGN CLASSIC – THE AWARD WINNING MICRO SCOOTER

Wim Ouboter created the first Aluminium folding scooter in 1998 when he realised he needed a method of transport to use for journeys that were “too far too walk but not far enough to drive”.

In no time at all, and with a passion for designing innovative, sustainable urban transportation solutions, he was able to come up with the simple, mobile and easily foldable two wheeled scooter so creating what can only be described as a design classic – the folding aluminium scooter.

Wim’s engineering and design expertise led him to create to develop scooters that revolutionise the way we move. One of the early innovations was the Mini Micro scooter.

Anna and Philippa

HOW IT ALL BEGAN IN THE UK

Ten years ago Anna Gibson discovered the Mini Micro Scooter. Realising the benefits it gave her and the confidence and independence it gave her son Edward, she started selling them. Inspired by the ability to leave the pushchair at home Anna wanted the Mini Micro Scooter to be more widely available to other parents, and teamed up with her friend Philippa Gogarty to form Micro Scooters Limited in the UK. Working with Micro Mobility in Switzerland they helped to develop the Maxi Micro, using their experience as parents to help make the perfect range of scooters.

Not content with scooters Anna and Philippa also manufacture scooter accessories for the UK and International markets allowing children and adults to personalise their Micro scooters.

DRIVEN BY INNOVATION, POWERED BY PASSION

A compelling combination of urban street style and mechanical engineering genius, each of the scooters is designed and manufactured to exacting standards. Honouring Swiss design every scooter is constructed with safety in mind. Built to last and easily maintained, Micro scooters are a transport solution that is viable, sustainable and enjoyable.

ON THE MOVE TO IMPROVE

With the increasingly fast pace of urban environments, and the ever changing face of urban transport, Micro are constantly on the look out to design better and more innovative scooters. One of their latest developments , the E-Scooter, is sheer genius. This elegant beast with a chargeable battery which lasts longer than anything else out there is a sleek uncompromising electric scooter. The E-Scooter is self-propelled, picking up momentum from the usual kick and push action of the rider. It is a resounding hit so far with the urban trend setters. Combine this with the ‘Black Ice’ – a scooter for downhill ski slopes, and the ‘Pedal Flow’ a scooter that is a bicycle, and it is clear that Micro are determined to tackle the transport conundrums of the 21st century. There are over 15 types of scooters to choose from. What’s more they are all built with varying objectives and ages in mind. Choosing the right scooter for you your child or another person is an exciting journey.
