Skroller, the backrest for e-scooters is in Town!
Skroller is a Spanish start-up that has patented a game changing backrest for e-scooters that provides stability and comfort during the ride, drastically reducing the risk of accidents.
Just like the saddle on a horse, the e-scooter needs something that enhances the rider's comfort, stability and control. Resigning ourselves to sore legs, back pain and the immediate loss of stability and control at the slightest road crack is definitely not 'smart mobility'.
Unlike all other two wheeled vehicles, e-scooters lack an anchor point beside your hands. When riding a bike your hands will just steer, relying the balance entirely on your body. Pretending to rely both steering and equilibrium only on your hands is doomed to lack any control, resulting in an unsafe ride.
Skroller connects your body to the pole of the scooter enabling it as the centre of balance. That's right, you now can shift your weight to the sides while turning so that the riding feels smoother and safer, feeling in control of each turn, even when hands free!
This is accomplished by means of a band with a comfy cushion that you can easily fasten around your waist. Since the mechanism is designed to retrieve automatically as you get closer to the pole, you can confidently lean back, relax and adjust it on-the-go by simply pressing the button on top of Skroller, as you no longer need both hands to keep balance.
This opens up a whole new world of possibilities only restrained by fantasy. Common actions that seemed impossible while riding without Skroller, like wearing an umbrella, signalling a turn or even juggling are now at will, in a comfortable and easy way.
To achieve the functionalities needed while guaranteeing the best performance and endurance, we have engineered Skroller using the latest materials in the market. Making it incredibly resistant to any type of shocks.
Skroller is appearing on stage on the 9th of September through a crowdfunding campaign hosted on Kickstarter.com. But the most enthusiastic riders can already pre-order their Skroller at skroller-belt.com with a 40% discount from the retail price.
We encourage you to back us on the 9th and help us embrace you wherever you go. Because getting there can be just as great as being there!
