2016 - 2017, Platinum A' Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Probably all of you remember that two years ago, Citybirds has presented neo orange minimalistic kick scooter called Pigeon.Today we just got back from a trip of the lifetime around Europe. During which we were delivering Pigeons to the people who backed the successfully funded kickstarter project.While making attempts not to stop at what has been achieved with a Pigeon we do our best to show our clear position on the impact of ecology on human life. Therefore, we are super excited to introduce you to Raven the lightest scooter on a market!
Creativity
The most unique part of the Raven is the orange gap in a middle of horizontal frame which gives the possibility to fold the whole scooter to absolute flatpack stick, which does not take much space. The streamlined shape of the Raven perfectly fits to a consumers shoulder therefore it gives a possibility to carry it easily when scooter is folded. We have chosen to use carbon fiber material, for the reason of its luxuriance, stability and lightness. Therefore Raven scooter weights only 980grams.
Design Challenges
The biggest challenge of the designing process is always how to do not give up in the manufacturing step and create a real product, not only an idea, sketch, or Cgi render but real scooter which would appear on a shop shelves whole around the world. Therefore, design becomes very important part and has important role in this complex process of creation.
Production Technology
Regarding the fact that we wanted to expand our target group and to create a trend which would involve the businessmen to be a part of this eco-friendly vehicle movement, we chosen to use carbon fiber material, for the reason of its luxuriance, stability and lightness. Therefore Raven scooter weights only 980grams.
