Stator is a modern self balancing vehicle
designed to simplify personal transportation. Stator features extreme off-the-line
torque and speeds up to 30 mph with a 20-mile range. High output lithium
batteries are located in the base to power an efficient 1000W geared hub motor
housed within the rear wheel. This scooter may be ridden stripped down or
customized. A quick-folding handlebar gives the scooter pack-ability for quick
storage and transport. Stator can be customized through a group of components include seat, front/rear utility
racks, headlight, brake light, phone holder/charger and custom rack bags.

Stator is a vehicle for an individual
traveling short distances for transportation or recreation looking for a simple personal electric vehicle with style. This reaches many
demographics, whether enthusiasts, ages 16-45 looking to travel in effortless
style or a racecar pit crew, looking for a pack-able vehicle in which the team
can share to get around and move supplies. Stator appeals to individuals who
grew up riding Razor scooters and are familiar with that riding style but would
enjoy an upgraded style and customizable options in a powered vehicle and
college age students that do not have a car but need to get to and from school
or around a large campus. The scooter also provides a feasible solution to the
increasing drop in numbers of today's youth who are not receiving drivers
licenses. No matter the purpose, owners can choose to keep it in its minimal
form or fully outfit the vehicle.

Stator is similar styling to my original original Moon scooter with a completely new approach in refining, simplicity, handling, and manufacturing. I feel that design is not only about aesthetics but about the usability, engineering, manufacturing, costs, market, safety, social impact, environmental impact, marketing, style, and story, all coming together to make a great product. The original Moon scooter was a ten week crash on designing and making a quick working prototype out or existing or modified parts without much time for testing or feedback. Over the last year and a half I have worked non stop in taking potential customer feedback and testing of the first concept and fully redesigned for ease of ride, handling, and manufacturing. Every change was centered around the rider and keeping the form honest and pure. Though the changes may not be noticeable at first they are very substantial. Every mechanical part has been fully redesigned for reliability and manufacturing. The new custom hub motor and battery designs were built and assembled as low volume production samples from large volume manufactures. All, engineering, FEA analysis, steering angle, ride height, tube angles, materials, and electronics have been redesigned working closely with US manufactures. Currently six of eight Stator scooters have been built and are being used for rider testing and reliability. The attention and local demand for Stator is increasingly growing. I am working to get Stator into the hands of people looking for the future of simple honest personal transportation.
I saw a need for a simple, compact,
energy-efficient, environmentally friendly vehicle that could be used to travel
short distances. Most of the products currently on the market are overbuilt or
add on to existing products. I took the opportunity to create a stylish
vehicle, simple like a skateboard yet easier to ride and user friendly no
matter the skill level of the rider. Additionally, I wanted to design a vehicle
with a bold look that is fully customizable through its components. The
solution: a simple electric vehicle that is easy to ride. With its
self-balancing design, the rider easily steps on and rides away. Parking is a
snap, simple step off and walk away. It recognizes when the rider walks away
and waits for the RFID to start up again.
After researching personal electric vehicles
and looking at what is currently on the market, Once I started designing, I did
not look at other vehicles or competing products with the intention to prevent
any outside influence. I wanted the design to be something different and
unique. Thinking this way allowed me to focus solely on the necessary
components. I envisioned the design as a platform between two oversized wheels
with a pole for a handlebar. I created the minimalism form then worked to
hide and protect all the components within. The design was initially based on
function but as it developed, it began to follow an aesthetic theme. I broke
down each mechanical assembly to its simplest form removing all unnecessary
shapes or parts. I am very satisfied with the final result.
The Stator design and name has and is currently in the process of US and International patent and trademarks.
Classic simplicity of structure that creates a useable device. Elemental, yet clearly well prototyped and tested. Best of all, it looks fun!
