The 'Halfbike' is a brand of urban scooters that were designed back in 2014 by Kolelinia in order to give consumers a easy and versatile way to get around.

The Halfbike is described as a scooter-bicycle hybrid -- meaning that it functions like a standing bike that offers more natural movement. The urban scooters were originally launched on Kickstarter, where they received an outpour of support and surpassed its funding goal. Given the sleek aluminum design, the Halfbike can be folded and carried to be stowed away safely while not in use -- making it a great transport alternative for consumers who've dealt with the frustrations of having their bike stolen. The compact design also means that it can be carried on public transit or placed into the truck of a car.

While the previous model had only one speed, the updated urban scooters have three gears and come in an array new colorful versions, including yellow, green and red.
