Yedoo Wolfer Won the Design Award RED DOT 2016

Yedoo Wolfer Scooter – the biggest model from our new series of road scooters Yedoo Alloy – has succeeded in one of the most well known design shows in the world and has won the Red Dot Award 2016 in the category of Product Design.

A 41-member jury of independent experts specializing in design has awarded the traditional Red Dot to a road scooter for the exceptional design quality, level of innovation, functionality and formal quality.  “I consider the investment in development and design an inseparable part of our business success” says the founder of Yedoo, Dan Pilát. He called in a renowned Czech designer Jaroslav Juřica and graphical designers Zuzana Lednická and Ondřej Kahánek from Najbrt Studio to join the development team.

The new line of Yedoo road scooters can pride itself on a couple of construction features that have not previously appeared in a scooter . It is mainly the technology of aluminum extrusion profiles, which easily resist both vertical and lateral strain. „This way the frame is not only light and sturdy, but the  technology we used also allowed us to take the riding performance to a whole new level, in all respects,“ clarifies the head of Yedoo development, Jakub Bostl.

"In my view, we pushed the perception of scooters further with the new Yedoo Alloy line of scooters. We managed to get rid of the deep-rooted stereotypes and build it as a fully-fledged means of transport and sporting goods. The award, which we received, is the appraisal of excellent teamwork," says designer Jaroslav Juřica.

    Hi I use a Xootr for commuting which has 2 small wheels. I find it great. i was looking at the Yedoo because I wonder if the larger wheels will be more stable in the context of dips in the pavement. I think that is true but am also wondering about stability in wet, slightly slippery weather. What is the advantage of the big and smaller wheels you have? What is the overall lengths of the scooters? I wonder about how they will fit in a car. They don't fold, do they? Thanks Josephine
