Arevo, the company behind the custom 3D printed Superstrata bike, is now focusing on electric scooters. The Scotsman electric scooter is now available on IndieGoGo, and if you don̵
Like the Superstrata bike, the Scotsman is 3D printed from a single piece of thermoplastic carbon fiber composite, free of glue and other common mounting materials. Each Scotsman is made to order based on your specifications and comes in 500, 1,000 and 2,000 watt models depending on your riding style.
While it may seem like a strange idea, the 3D-printed carbon fiber Scotsman is incredibly lightweight (about 40 pounds on average) and surprisingly powerful thanks to its dual-engine design. The 500, 1,000 and 2,000 watt models all have a range of 110 kilometers and can drive 19 MPH, 31 MPH and 45 MPH respectively.
Since each Scotsman has two battery compartments, you can always buy an extra battery and double your range to 140 miles. The batteries are removable and can charge your phone or laptop via USB-C cable.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Scotsman has a ton of bells and whistles. The 10-inch air-filled tires have patented suspension for ride comfort, dual regenerative disc brakes allow you to stop safely at high speeds, LED head and tail lights help you navigate traffic, and a front-facing camera adjusts you allows you to record your rides. . The scooter also has a digital instrument cluster with GPS, cellular and Bluetooth functionality.
But you can’t get a custom, high-quality scooter for a low price. As Arevo CEO Sonny Vu points out in an interview with INPUT, the Scotsman doesn’t compete with cheap scooters from brands like Xiamoi, but takes on the big dogs like the Boosted Rev and Inokim OXO. That’s why it has a starting price of $ 3,000 (or $ 1,600 if you get the early bird pre-order price on IndieGoGo).
Before ordering a Scotsman, let me talk about Arevo’s Superstrata bike. The 3D printed custom bike debuted on IndieGoGo 11 months ago and many orders are still not fulfilled due to delivery constraints in the bike industry. These same delivery restrictions should not have to apply to electric scooters, which have very few parts, but I wouldn’t put too much inventory into Arevo’s December 2021 shipping target.
