On spring 2020 Markku Laatikainen ordered himself a long desired fat tired electric scoot. By the time scoot arrived there was still some ice on the roads and during the first test drive Laatikainen felt over on the slippery surface. This disappointment was troubling him for a couple of months until he realized that two-wheeled scoot isn’t suitable for many of the road surfaces out there and there is a need for a different kind of vehicle design. During morning coffee he draw the first sketch of a vehicle which is now known as Skick.
After first drawings there was some designing with his sons lego-bricks and after that it was time for his still-new fat tired electric scoot to donate some parts for the real Skick prototype. Prototype build was done by Antti Karjalahti whom Laatikainen found from Facebook group of inventions. Men soon also established Arctic Rides Ltd and applied first patents & utility models while building the first real prototype.
First prototype proved to be excellent ride on snowy surfaces and men decided to move further and search for a suitable vehicle designer.
