designed and handmade in the UK, swifty scooters have developed an folding kick scooter for urban commuting. the ‘swiftyONE’ is produced with an innovative mechanism which allows users to collapse the two-wheeler down to an ultra slim profile, making it storage efficient when folded. in this manner, it can be rolled on its front wheel or carried onto a bus or train. weighing just 7.8kg, it provides a smooth and fast ride due to its 16inch pneumatic wheels. in celebration of the company’s first anniversary, swifty is collaborating with paul smith and the conran shop on upcoming autumn / winter colour collections.
