A brief history
The micro® story began as a matter of convenience.
For the inventor of the micro® scooter, Wim Ouboter, it was too far to walk to his favourite bar and not quite far enough to warrant getting on his bike or getting the car out of the garage.
The solution had to be lightweight and easy to ride. And it had to fold up, so that it could be tucked out of the way when not being used.
Out of "necessity" came a low cost vehicle which met these requirements.
Today, kids of all ages around the world are familiar with the result: millions of micro® scooters and copies-of have been sold worldwide, and they remain a bestseller.
micro® was founded in 1996 and is based in the village of Küsnacht on Lake Zurich, Switzerland. From here, a young and highly motivated team handles deliveries to customers and dealers in about 52 countries including Australia.
As well as micro® scooters, the micro® range includes kickboards, ride-ons and accessories.
