3D-Printed Carbon Fiber Scooter

Scotsman, an electric scooter brand based in Silicon Valley, presented its flagship product: the first electric scooter made entirely of carbon fiber composite.

The Scotsman touts a true unibody construction, 3D-printed with single passes of continuous carbon fiber thermoplastic composite. Unlike other high-end scooters that have certain parts that are composite, the Scotsman’s the entire frame, handlebar, stem, and baseboard is made of carbon fiber composite. It’s constructed without joints or glue for seamless strength. The scooter is produced using the latest thermoplastic materials, making it extremely impact-resistant, yet remarkably lightweight.

Scotsman uses an advanced 3D-printing process allowing for unprecedented levels of customization. Each frame is tailor-made for the owner’s body measurements and riding style.
