At Zapp, we’ve always had a hunch there were undiscovered frontiers for sustainability in transportation.
The hunch was simple.
We wanted to confront a problem many products face, and find sustainable solutions to the question: “Why is it that when a part of something breaks, you throw the whole thing away?”
Surely we can do better than that.
Unique solution, unrivaled design.
Our unique remedy for our electric city bike was found when we went back to the basics, and very seriously has (no pun intended) driven us to the frontlines of the viable, sustainable transportation market.
The secret is this: everything is eternally divisible.
Quality of craftsmanship is defined by how well one puts pieces together, and since things are easier to digest in pieces, shouldn’t your scooter design, personalisation, maintenance, and repair be just as simple?
The concept of “Product Modularity” is not new, and you’ll recognize it from its presence in tech, architecture, or art. Product modularity has a unique ability to make big things happen from little building blocks. For instance, the development of modular LED displays to create massive, realistic movie sets has recently created images and settings impossible to scale before.
We like those odds, so as a concept, we applied Product Modularity in a way that has never been done before – by ensuring each component of the bike can be individually separated, replaced, repaired, or upgraded without the need to purchase an entirely new unit.
By doing this, we’re designing an eternally reliable, personalisable, sleek and powerful scooter of the future. One that’s less taxing on natural resources and landscapes, using less material, and revolutionizing quality over unreasonable quantity, it all checks out.
Take matters into your own hands.
You begin with the configurator, an online design workroom, where you are able to visualize your unique Zapp scooter.
Using our proprietary technology, you can choose various colors, swap parts, compare the specs and benefits of different components, and be the designer of your own distinct ride.
With diligent and leading research in sustainable design and material sourcing, we’ve made sure that no roads lead to a dead end, and the combinations and horizons are endless.
From custom modular storage options, to epic breaking systems. From hyper-controlled swing arms, to a super torque motor with unparalleled efficiency, you’ll quickly get a sense that no opportunity for innovation was overlooked.
