SwiftyZERO; the endurance adventure scooter of choice

Dave worked together with Jason to prepare his orange SwiftyZERO. Dave requested pannier racks to carry his equipment, as Dave has been recovering from a back injury, he didn’t want a heavy back-pack.

With equipment totalling about 7kg, they decided on one front pannier rack, fitted with a kickstand, and a slim rear rack. Designed and built by Jason Iftakhar from birch plywood and aluminium tubing, it was a great chance to spend some time on R+D! Mudguards and lights were also fitted.
