Cargo Pal Eco-Scooter


The making of Cargo Pal eco scooter initially started with an idea to make a cargo scooter that can run swiftly in narrow streets with sharp turns. There are no mechanical connections from the steering of the wheel. It’s all done electronically, so no major moves are necessary.

The electric scoter has two hydraulic shock absorbers, placed on the top of the axis where wheels turn, to help raise or lower the vehicle for road condition.  To help the driver maintain balance, Cargo Pal use gyro technology, which is also used in the known Segways.

The Cargo Pal eco scooter, for modern urban landscape to transport common use things in a friendly way.

Nimble Scooters 2014


Nimble Cargo Scooter Beach

Nimble  Scooters of Irvine, California, has just launched their latest cargo scooter design in Europe at the Fietsvak Bike Show in Amsterdam this past March. With a very strong and lightweight aluminium frame and a vibrantly colored roto-molded plastic cargo tub, you can tell this scooter was built for heavy duty. Whether it’s for personal and leisure use, for small businesses or warehouse operators, the cargo scooter is made to help carry belongings easily over a short distance in a fun and convenient way.

Having won a spot at WantedDesignNYC’s LaunchPad, Nimble Scooters will be exhibiting during New York City’s International Design Week to officially mark the launch in the United States. The fair takes place from May 16-19th. More information here: www.wanteddesignnyc.com/wanteddesign-2014/launch-pad/
Based in California, the studio is looking for retailers along the coast and across the United States, as well as seeking opportunities to promote their scooter.

Nimble Cargo Scooter


Nimble Scooter Pacific Blue

Nimble Cargo Scooters is a company that manufactures cargo scooters in Irvine, California. The scooters start at $299 and are built with aircraft aluminum and baltic birch. You can order them with custom colors and graphics. They ride amazing well and are extremely stable with their low center of gravity.

At only 25 lbs, they’re very lightweight and compact. Also, they’re much smaller than a regular bicycle. While test riding a Nimble last week, we were able to walk into most stores like Target without the workers batting an eye. Think of it as a running stroller you can ride.

If you’ve always wanted a bakfiets but couldn’t afford it. Then look no further. Try out a Nimble Cargo Scooter, which is easily a fourth of the cost of a good bakfiets or long bike.

The Danish Cargo Bike Championships, a classic Copenhagen tradition


Have you ever dreamt about racing your cargo scooter with friends? Well, cargo scooter fans in Copenhagen have already been doing this for the past 11 years!

Every year the Svajerløbet – or the Danish Cargo Bike Championships – takes place in the Carlsberg area in Copenhagen.They have championships in several categories, such as the Svajerløb for kids, men, women, vintage cargo bikes, two or three wheel bikes! It is a non-profit event, really for those who love their cargo bikes.

The name Svajerløb comes from city’s bicycle messengers – known as ‘svajere’ who, decades ago, used to battle in unofficial races for bragging rights on Israels Plads in central Copenhagen.  It was a classic Copenhagen event that disappeared when cars started to dominate the urban landscape. The last race was in 1960. But as a capital full of cargo cyclists, there was much support given to revive the tradition in 2009.

In fact, there are around 40,000 cargo bikes in use each day in Greater Copenhagen and they are the Copenhagen version of the SUV, used for transporting children and goods. 25% of all families with two or more children have a cargo bike in the City of Copenhagen.

If you ever fancy to participate in the race, check out their website: http://www.dmforladcykler.dk/English2011.php
