About Swifty Scooters
Swifty Scooters was founded by design duo Camilla and Jason Iftakhar in 2011. Their vision is rooted in a shared passion for human powered transport and a shared spirit of adventure. Swifty soon became their antidote to the stress and pace of 21st century life, offering freedom to go anywhere, to beat queues without rushing, to move without following.
A journey by kick scooter can take advantage of the parks and pathways, cycle paths and quiet roads. The 100psi pneumatic tyres can handle mixed terrain, from grass to cobbles and in any weather. The Swifty scooter is a fun and fast alternative way to move in and around congested cities.
Through the power of design and engineering, Swifty is now known for manufacturing the most beautiful and innovative adult scooters. Swifty has already been endorsed by high profile collaborations, notably The Conran Shop (London and Paris) and Paul Smith (worldwide). Swifty Scooters now offer custom painted frames, which are hand finished in Swifty HQ in Salford, UK.
GQ Magazine, March 2012 "when traffic is glacial, trains overloaded and exercise time at a premium, kick scooters are an appealing alternative for city commuters."
