A lot of people tell me there are “better things” to do with compact electric scooter fenders than strap them to my body and run through a crowd of cake-vomiting children at a birthday party wall of fire and punches. One of those activities which is said to be better, is tossing the existing fenders in a scrap heap and designing some completely new fenders; Fenders that scream supreme scooter style. You can do just that with the latest CrowdCAD project at GrabCAD.com. The best fender wins a GoPro HD Camera, but you don’t have much time left!

Exo Nutrino Fender CrowdCAD Challenge

The CrowdCAD challenge is simple. Design a new set of fenders for the Exo Neutrino compact electric scooter. You can download all the Exo Nutrino files to get you going (including a mock-up of the scooter.) Manufacturing of the fenders is important, but even more this should be a lightweight design that says, “I’m cooler that the tight jeans on the hipster riding this thing.” Down with it?!

Here are a few submission to get those inspiration juices flowing into your brain stem. Click the image to go to the model page, download or provide feedback. Then, design some mud-fending fender features of your own. All the details are here. You have until July 31st to get your design in. ROCK IT.
