If you have problems with e-scooters clogging sidewalks, causing injuries, and reducing the use of mass transit there is an alternative. Swedish startup Cangoroo is bringing dockless pogo sticks to the Bay Area.
“We’ve been following the micro-mobility market and seen the demand. However, we also found that existing players are very generic when it comes to brand loyalty and making a statement and contributing to something beyond taking you from point A to B,” he said, emphasizing the sustainability and fitness aspect to the pogo sticks.
Mikkelsen said Cangoroo would be ready to work with city officials, including the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, on regulations and safety before launching the product.
