Gita is a 26 inch tall light vehicle that can carry up to 40 lbs.; its name means ‘short journey’ in Italian.
Gita is able either to navigate high-density urban spaces while following people or to move autonomously along pathways that it has already traveled. It’s an everyday assistant designed to help people walk, run, pedal and skate their way more freely and productively through life.
While KILO is the “big brother” of GITA, and which has a larger capacity and can transport up to 100 kg in its 120 lt compartment. It has good stability mainly due to its three wheels.
