The founders of Äike first got together in a Student Formula event in 2011, where, as a team, they engineered and developed electric race cars. In 2014 they understood that building cars is still a huge part of environmental pollution and decided to focus on micro-mobility by founding Comodule, a world leading company which connects electric vehicles to the internet. When the e-scooter industry started booming in 2019, the engineers realized that the way how these scooters were built was still horrible for the environment, despite the seemingly carbon-neutral way of riding. Thus, the Äike team put their heads together and developed their own prototype e-scooter, breaking the myths of unsafe riding experiences and producing the vehicle using renewable energy and recyclable materials.
These scooters were tested in heavy daily usage. After gathering valuable feedback from the customers the engineers developed it further and now Äike is tested to be one of the most convenient and safest scooter on the market.
Now, Äike has grown its team globally. The scooter itself is still being developed and produced in its own production house in Tallinn, Estonia, but Äike has a local team in Paris, France, with a showroom in one of the busiest mainstreets there– Rue de Rivoli.
