Why kickstarter?

We wanted to use Kickstarter to help bring the best scooter in the world, to as many people as possible. Designing and manufacturing any product is incredibly expensive. You can spend thousands, even millions, on research and private development, and even more again on marketing, only to find out your customers want something different.

With Kickstarter, you can get instant feedback from backers, implement those changes and ultimately involve your customers in the final development of your product.

Our 30-day Kickstarter campaign launched on November 11, 2019 – with the campaign fully funded in a record 43 minutes! During the campaign, we received invaluable pieces of feedback and insight from our backers, which we have now implemented into the final design of the Raine One. We now look forward to sharing the Raine One with the world and having our Kickstarter backers along for the ride!
