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.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
