The scooterist Meltdown begins as soon as the crew of Rimini Lambretta sets off to cross the Alps in snow and ice with their Lui and other weird creations of Lambretta history. In doing so, they let the general public participate in every storm and every breakdown via social media. Some manufacturers, such as KR Automation, then use the exhibition space to present new products. And of course, the Meltdown is the platform for some customizers to present their latest creations to the public. This year, for example, Frank Höppner presented his "Praying Mantis". 

What you can see on Saturday in the halls of Wunderland Kalkar is a unique mixture of the most interesting scooters, the most innovative developers, the latest products and the most dazzling personalities of the scene. Certainly the most exciting Saturday afternoon you can spend as a scooterist in winter. There will be good music from the turntables and live acts. Two nighters on different floors and the pampering programme of the all-inclusive weekend. I'm sure that the 9th episode will be a success and book my ticket for 2021.
