The Insane Toys story

logo Insane Toys

Insane Toys was born in Switzerland in 1990, when Franck Petoud (a snowboard and bmx enthusiast) was stranded in his Swiss chalet during a snowstorm, and had the brilliant idea of sawing up his snowboard and attaching the boards to the frame of his scooter. He didn’t know it yet, but he had just invented the snowscoot.

With a patent in his pocket, he was convinced that his idea would revolutionize the world of snow sports, so he went to see Max Commençal (CEO of the Sunn bike brand). Enthralled by the project, Max Commençal agreed to help him in this adventure, on condition that he took charge of manufacturing the snowscoots under his own brand name.

The first models saw the light of day that same year. The partnership between these two men led in 1996 to the creation of a Snowscoot Department and related products within the company, where Max and Franck now work under patent license. The Sunn company grew rapidly and spectacularly.

1998 After the unjustified dismissal of CEO Max Commençal, the company began to experience serious financial problems, and despite numerous world championship titles in cycle racing, was forced into receivership in 1999. The « Snowscoot Department », on the other hand, was doing well, with sales in dozens of countries.

Sunn’s new management had little interest in the snowscoot, which prompted Franck Petoud to create his own brand, now based in Switzerland, giving the name « SNOWSCOOT » and then creating his own identity under the brand name« INSANE TOYS« . The Snowscoot is legally protected by 3 patents, 2 models and 2 trademarks. The Snowscoot brand name belongs to its inventor, but can be used by non-profit sports associations to promote it at events or competitions. In 2016, Snowscootdoc bought out the Insane Toys brand and took over the lineage. Today, it is one of the leading players in the French snowscoot market.
