Raine One Electric Scooter – Melbourne Startup Boosted By Quick Wins!

It’s fair to say that the Australian designed electric scooter company Raine Scooters has had a big week! Moving into the very competitive electric scooter market, Raine Scooters launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $50k USD to allow the delivery of their first production run. Due to overwhelming support from their backers…this goal was met in just 43 minutes!

Since then, Raine’s Kickstarter has made almost $300k USD and has only been live for a week!

On top of the $300k USD pledged through Kickstarter, it was announced that Raine has been backed by Blackbird Ventures with $500k AUD in seed funding – no doubt encouraged by the strong demand from the Kickstarter launch. This will ensure that Raine are able to oversee the production of more electric scooters to meet the ever-growing demand.

If you are a scooter enthusiast and are looking for a safe scooter, then the Raine electric scooter is just for you. 

It is fitted with customisable LED lighting to ensure that you stay safe even on dark roads. With a max speed of up to 50kmh and a range of up to 40 kilometers, this scooter will also ensure you go wherever you want with ease. The scooter’s smart features and design elements also ensure this electric scooter is the full package.  

More About The “Raine One” Electric Scooter

The Raine One Scooter was made for smooth, safe and exciting journeys. The poly-shock suspension and superior acceleration make this scooter stand out. The Raine One has been made with super strong yet light carbon-fibre elements. This not only provides for a durable scooter, but also supports the X-system fold mechanism, which means the Raine can be easily folded, carried and stored. Unlike other foldable scooters, this convenient feature does not compromise the quality of the scooter in any way.

With a high-efficiency motor, you are also able to go uphill faster and go further than most scooters on the market of this size. It also has a selectable speed of 50kmh with an added range of 40 kilometers that allows you to travel further than many electric scooters.

The Raine One Electric Scooter is also rechargeable, and with a recharge time of less than 2 hours for a minimum of 20 kilometers – you won’t be on the sidelines for long.
