NEW YORK, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Floh is an ultra-light kick-scooter-backpack designed to make your commute fun and eco-friendly.
There are multiple ways to use The Floh. It can be worn like a backpack, pulled behind you, or transformed quickly to ride as a three-wheeled scooter. You can even detach the backpack and ride the scooter separately.
The Floh will solve your travel and transportation needs in a cool, enjoyable and environmentally safe way. Scoot from the parking lot to your workplace or classroom, zip through the airport terminal, or glide to your local coffee shop with speed and ease.
The water-resistant backpack is made of high-density EVA foam that is ultra-light and sturdy. The Floh, weighing less than 9 lbs (4 kg), fits into the overhead compartment of an aircraft. It has a volume of about 18 liters and can carry up to 220 lbs (100 kg). Built with robust inline-skating wheels, the extra wide board is designed to let both feet rest comfortably side by side. The Ackermann steering system will safely carve turns without tipping over, the brakes make for a safe traffic companion and the three-wheeled configuration allows the Floh to stand upright after dismounting.
The back-wheel fits snugly against the bag, while having the ability to spin out 90 degrees when the board is folded down for riding. This makes the Floh both very compact when folded up and an engineering marvel when folded down. The Floh is unique, practical and extremely fun to ride!
