Never liked the description ‘electric scooter’ for a kick scooter, or a trottinette or a step … but when I saw this Raine One driving in the streets, I was (and I am still) pretty excited. So yes, let’s call this Raine One an electric scooter from now on. Did I mention they are on Kickstarter? The campaign is still running for 8 days and what a result already! You can see for yourself in the link down below. Or should I say Down Under?
Raine was founded in Melbourne (Australia) by three passionate entrepreneurs. James Murphy, the co-founder of the BajaBoard off-road electric skateboard, wanted to design and create a product that’s easy and fun to ride. Marc Alexander, the co-founder of the LIFX smart light bulbs, adds his years of experience running successful companies and designing electronics. Michelle Mannering, the co-founder of the Black AI visualisation system, adds her marketing and partnerships flair.
Smart, safe and connected, with night and day lighting – a scooter designed just for you and your journey.
The team designed the Raine One from the ground up to be the safest, smoothest, and most exhilarating electric scooter in the world. With superior acceleration, poly-shock suspension, aircraft grade materials and safety.
The Raine One’s tech has been designed to keep you in sync with your scooter. From integrated locking, to on the fly mode switching and power management – you’ll always be in control. The in-built navigation will guide you to your destination – with personalized lighting to light your way.
Safety is one of the most important aspects of the Raine One. Just like modern cars, the sophisticated ABS braking system and poly-shock suspension mean stopping has never been smoother or safer. The high grip deck and all-weather tires prevent slipping in the wet, while the programmable LED lights maximize visibility even on the darkest of nights.
The X-system fold with carbon fibre elements makes the Raine One super light and compact without compromising on strength. Put it under your desk or carry on public transport. Unlike other scooters, our folding system doesn’t compromise on strength or shock absorption. That’s why it took 12 months to perfect.
