Electric kick scooters come in all shapes and sizes. Need one that’s light and easy to carry around? There are plenty of those around. What about something more durable and fit for longer ranges? The industry has you covered here, too.

The Splach-Transformer, though, is something we haven’t seen yet.

Propelling this thing is a 350w motor with a top speed of 38kph. Disc brakes come as standard, and Splach says its suspension setup will keep things plush over even rougher terrain.

As of now, the Splach-Transformer has already reached a whopping 1,280% of its $10,000 (P500,000) Indigogo goal. It’s still being offered with an early-bird rate, though.

You can find out more about getting your hands on one on its official Indiegogo website. Interested?
