Innovation is our passion

Since 1999 with the huge success of the first foldable scooter the aim was not to become a one hit wonder but continually innovate and improve modern mobility. When thinking of a new idea the Swiss design team always asks the same question, “how can we make getting from A to B more practically, time saving and fun at the same time?”.  This question has lead to more than 40 new products and the creation of over 25 innovations.  Read below on some of our favourite innovations how they've changed the way we travel.

First Folding Aluminium Scooter

After the first prototype was made in 1997, the first folding scooter was introduced by Micro Mobility Systems to the market in 1999. The lightweight foldable scooter became extremely popular with children as a fun, practical and easy way to get around. Over 5 million models were sold worldwide. The original model has grown and developed into many scooters including today's top selling Sprite scooter for kids.

Youth with Kickboard street scooter

The Kickboard - Surf and Street Ride

Soon after the first foldable scooter came the Kickboard, a 3 wheeler with new lean steering. The new style of riding was adopted by youth. It uses similar techniques as a skateboard or surfing to ride along the street using a joy stick. The special weight and steering of the kickboard is patented and works through shifting your weight from side to side, curving and carving as you ride.

Mini Micro - The best developmental toy

The Mini Micro was originally introduced in 2001 with a similar construction to the kickboard but for kids as young as two years old to use. The little scooter is stable, lightweight and has a lean to steer function. It was jointly developed with Swiss medical professionals to develop motor skills, balance and coordination of preschoolers. The mini is safe, fun and the best developmental toy for young children.
