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!
We can make adjustments to our initial design to ensure it is the best that it can be
The dialogue we start during our kickstarter will form the foundation for our business as we move to develop new and exciting products in the future.
We feel a great responsibility to deliver our backers an exceptional product in the time frame we have promised.
At Raine, we’re passionate about creating awesome products for everyone to enjoy. The Raine One scooter is built to put the fun into your daily journey. By combining our areas of expertise and focusing on the customer, we’ve developed an innovative solution to your personal transport needs.
