Kickbike – A Kick Butt Lower Body Workout

See it to believe it … use it to FEEL it!!

Fancy a lower body workout that’s fun and competitive?

Welcome to the world of KICKBIKING! You’ve gotta see it to believe it!

WHAT’S A KICKBIKE ANYWAY?

A Kickbike is a scooter/bicycle hybrid. It features a scooter platform, front tyre like a bicycle and back tyre like a scooter. It’s not pedal-powered but it IS person-powered! You want to move? It’s all up to you! Unless you’re on a downhill slope and then gravity’s your best friend in the whole wide world!

Kickbike was designed by Hannu Vierikko, a Finnish doctor who ran marathons and wanted to get in shape without injuring his joints. The Kickbike is the fastest scooter in the world!

WHAT KIND OF WORKOUT DOES IT GIVE?

It uses the same muscles as running, yet is lower impact. In fact, a Kickbike workout uses even more muscles than running. It’s propelled by pushing off with alternate legs in a motion very similar to running.

Over hilly terrain, twenty minutes on a Kickbike equals around one hour and fifteen minutes on a road bike.

WHO’D USE A KICKBIKE?

Kickbike is a decidedly grown up scooter! It’s not going to fold up so you can tuck it under your arm and head to the 7-Eleven for a Big Gulp. It’s not the kind of thing you’ll trade for Pokemon Cards with your school buddies. It’s a serious workout machine and deserves a little respect.

– The Australian Kickbike Racing Team can’t imagine life without it!

– Women love it for the definition it helps them build up in their backsides and thighs.

– Athletes use it for training.

– Dog-sledders ride their Kickbike while their canine team lead them over the course.

– Enthusiasts regularly hold and attend tournaments and events all over the country and the world!

4 DIFFERENT MODELS

The designers of Kickbike developed four different styles to suit a range of exercise and transportation needs.

THE CITY CRUISER: It’ll have you you running errands in style, while turning your legs and backside into the envy of your friends! Kick leisurely in the park, improve your overall fitness and attract glances while you do it! The City Cruiser’s upright position and enhanced wheels maximise rider form and comfort.

THE X-COUNTRY: Go off-road, up mountains, along streams, wherever your inclination takes you! With front fork suspension and disk brake, you can go hard and get dirty!

THE SPORT CLASSIC: The durable tires are fast on city streets, but still provide traction and comfort on country roads. Functionally designed, the ergonomic frame, slick rims and lowered handlebars, further enhanced with an angle adjustable stem, make it the best cross-trainer available.

THE MILLENNIUM RACER: The MR is for the athlete in search seeking the best equipment and peak experiences without compromise. Every detail has been considered with speed and lightness in mind. This is truly the fastest scooter money can buy.

THE WHEEL DEAL: Kickbike is made from high-tech bicycle components like aluminium alloy handlebars and Trans X components, which are found in many high-end mountain bikes. There are no chains or gears and no bicycle grease. They weigh around eight and a half kilograms and you can carry two in the back of a car!

WHAT ELSE? Well, so many people are talking Kickbiking, that you don’t have to look far for enthusiastic repartee! There are Yahoo Groups, websites devoted to the sport, and there’s even a Podcast for Kickbikers!

Do not underestimate Kickbike for a kick-butt workout … and have fun doing it!
