In the hustle and bustle of urban life, getting around quickly and efficiently have always been on the minds of urbanites worldwide. Depending on the city you live in, personal vehicles can be infeasible and expensive, public transportation unreliable, and walking slow and tiring.
Some of us are like Sheldon Cooper in that we don’t have a driver’s license but don’t always have reliable transportation (get it together Leonard).
For some of us, going to the nearest Game Stop is the only exercise we’ll get during the day but the thought of walking inspires dread and conjures images of sweating and heavy breathing (the bad kind).
Part of the problem is our attachment to our backpacks which have everything we need in them from personal controllers to Magic decks to Mountain Dew. We need our backpacks but they get heavy as we walk. We can get a lightweight backpack but even then it might not work.
Quicker, More Efficient Travel
The scooter backpack is exactly what it sounds like: a scooter with a backpack attached to it. Now you can carry your mode of transportation through your favorite comic book store or park it near the front door.
Now your shoulders won’t get tired carrying your backpack with the added benefit of getting around quicker on a cool scooter. It’s the best of both worlds, you get places faster and you don’t have to carry anything.
Faster and less exhausting than walking, the scooter provides a method of travel that is reliable and faster than most other modes of transportation. No more waiting for a ride from a friend, no more waiting on the train or hailing a cab. Leave when you want and get there as fast as you want.
Similar to the scooters popular in the early 2000’s, the The scooter backpack uses a similar design with a wider base and a wider wheelset. Improvements are being made with the release of every new design based upon customer feedback.
Unlike traditional scooters with only two wheels, The scooter backpack have three wheels which adds stability and the ability to carry anything and everything you need for the day.
The urban version of Olaf’s Backpack Scooter is designed like a wooden longboard, complete with a foot break near the back. The backpack itself sits at the base of the handlebars allowing you to negotiate the large walking crowds without having to guess if you fit between two people.
The front of the board has two polyurethane wheels to prevent instability and helps to create a more stable turning mechanism. A third wheel sits at the back with a step brake making it one of the most stable scooters on the market.
You can also use the Urban as its own skateboard so you can tear down the streets one day and fly with it the next.
Business Version of the Scooter Backpack
The business version is the same size as a carry-on bag meaning it’ll fold up and fit in most overhead bins when flying. Now you can fly to a different city and not have to worry about getting around. So if you are planning on getting a new business backpack, you might want to consider being hip and get a scooter backpack instead.
The best part about both versions is their ability to fold up into a single, compact bag or backpack meaning it’s highly transportable.
Both versions also allow you to transform your backpack or luggage into a rolling luggage trolley meaning you don’t even have to carry your backpack if you don’t want to.
There are several other versions of the scooter that make it more customizable. One version has a messenger bag, one has a basket, and another excludes the bag so you can use it as a pure scooter or a bag trolley for luggage you already possess.
Highly versatile and dynamic, the Backpack Scooter may be the best way to travel to date.
Cost of Scooter Backpack
Depending on the brand, The scooter backpack is comparable to any standard suitcase or piece of luggage. This may be out the price range for some but when you start to add the costs of traveling such as gas or bus fare, The scooter backpack basically pays for itself.
The Urban costs around $280 but each one is made as soon you order it and it saves you at least that much in public transportation costs per year. Now you can save money, get some exercise, and carry everything you need for the next ComiCon.
The Business style scooter runs slightly more expensive than its Urban and City counterpart but still well within the range of a high-quality piece of luggage.
Though the cost may be a bit high for some, the durability and dependability of the scooter backpack is worth the price. Every board is assembled by hand and made from some of the finest materials available.
The Urban is made from laser cut wood and inspected before they’re assembled and shipped to the customer. You can even have your scooter customized with your name or logo on the bottom of the board.
The Business is made from sleek, high-grade metals and is waterproof to keep your luggage safe at all times during travel. It even meets airline size and weight restrictions to keep you light and efficient while traveling.
Though the company is relatively new, there is a guarantee associated with each scooter sold by Olaf Scooters.
Best backpack investment for you
The scooter backpack may be one of the best new ways to get around in cities, airports, train stations, and anywhere you need to get around quickly and at a low cost. Now you can take everything with you without fatiguing your shoulders and you can do so without having to walk, pay for a bus pass, or hail a cab.
So check out the Backpack Scooter and see if it can get you from place to place quicker and easier at a much lower cost than public transportation. Now you don’t have to be the Sheldon of your group, you can get yourself to and from work.
