Employing a combination of elegant Swiss design and cutting-edge technology, Micro’s designs have won over 50 prestigious awards worldwide. The headquarters for Micro-Mobility are located in Zurich Switzerland.
The story behind the creation of the first Micro scooter has become widely known. Wim Ouboter was a young inventor living just outside of Zurich, Switzerland. The distance to his favorite lunchtime sausage shop, the Sternen Grill, was too far to walk but too short for a car or even a bike. Recalling the scooter of his youth he set about designing, together with his wife Janine, a foldable scooter large enough for an adult. The result triggered a worldwide boom starting in the year 2000. Just check the Razor scooter Wikipedia page and you will see ‘the Razor scooter was invented by micro-mobility'.
