Idea of the week: Fold-up scooter

The Swifty One scooter, designed by Manchester-based husband and wife design team Jason and Camilla Iftakhar, was introduced at the London Design Festival last week.

The folding scooter has 16-inch pneumatic wheels on the front and rear, and weighs in at 7.5kg. The scooter can be folded down to take onto the bus/train or stored under your desk. It’s available in either matt black or white and retails at £450.

“With rising petrol prices, people are looking to alternative transport to save on costs and time,” says Camilla Iftakhar. “The Swifty One is practical – no need for special lycra gear or messy bike chains – plus it’s fun and easy to ride. The product demonstrates how British innovation can really fill a gap in the market for a public wanting to save on travel and transport.”

The scooter is manufactured locally in Manchester, and assembled in the Swifty Scooters workshop.
