Ignas Survila – PIGEON – kick scooter

People nowadays are in a hurry in all aspects of their life, they are so eager to grow up, to earn money and to live, thus forgetting about the present days. I believe you may convert your hurrying into a delightful and pleasant process, and a kick scooter here may be a tool, helping to achieve this goal. This was the reason for me to create a kick scooter. Even though a large variety of kick scooters exist today and the creation of one more kick scooter was a big challenge, new unforeseen results have been achieved. A lot of kick scooters are manufactured according to one model, which, however, has not been made to perfection as to be a convenient and aesthetically attractive product. Upon consideration from a new aspect the possibilities of a kick scooter, my task was to improve a model scooter eliminating some shortcomings, to brainstorm the whole consumer and servicing system, to arouse a new interest of consumers in a kick scooter as a mode of leisure and lifestyle, and to make it more consumer-friendly and not complicated in use. “Pigeon” may be folded by one-time pushing with a foot, after folding it is compact, of streamlined forms, thus making it comfortable in use. After rejecting the unnecessary details, the general construction of the product became lighter. My present ambition is for the people throughout the world to change their approach to things that seem unchangeable and to turn hurrying into a pleasant and useful process. I believe commuting from Point A to Point B may be turned into a delightful travel.
