Get ready for some spring-loaded jumping action with the new Flybar pogo stick. It might even send you into orbit!

Flybar Pogo Stick - Jumping Power

The Flybar is a new state of the art pogo stick that's built for maximum boing. The Flybar was partly developed by skateboarding champ, Andy Macdonald, who was looking to take the elevation and exhilaration of jumping on a pogo stick to a higher level. The Flybar gets its pop from an elastomeric spring system that can launch riders up to six feet in the air! All the power from the Flybar pogo stick comes from the rider's bodyweight and leg strength. If you're new to the pogo stick game or don't want to get going super high, you can easily adjust the pistons to dial back the bounce. The Flybar also has nice and fat, grippy foot pegs to help you stick those landings. You'll feel just like you're jumping on a trampoline.

Flybar Pogo Stick - Can You Handle It?

Riding the Flybar pogo stick can be a lot of fun and a great workout - but like any piece of sports equipment, you need to ride it carefully and safely. Always wear a helmet when riding the Flybar pogo stick and make sure you read the instructions and get some help from an adult before going on your first ride. And make sure you ask for a raise in your allowance - the Flybar pogo sticks cost $300 US.
