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 have to see it to believe it!
WHAT IS A KICKBIKE ANYWAY?
A kickbike is a hybrid scooter/bicycle. Features a scooter deck, front tire like a bike, and rear tire like a scooter. It doesn’t work with pedals, but it DOES be done by a person! Do you want to move? Everything depends on you! Unless you’re on a downhill incline and gravity is your best friend in the whole world!
Kickbike was designed by Hannu Vierikko, a Finnish doctor who ran marathons and wanted to get in shape without hurting his joints. The Kickbike is the fastest scooter in the world!
WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DO YOU GIVE?
It uses the same muscles as running, but has a lower impact. In fact, a Kickbike workout uses even more muscles than running. It is propelled by pushing with alternate legs in a movement very similar to running.
In mountainous terrain, twenty minutes on a Kickbike is roughly equivalent to one hour and fifteen minutes on a road bike.
WHO WOULD USE A KICKBIKE?
Kickbike is a decidedly adult scooter! It won’t fold up so you can tuck it under your arm and head to 7-Eleven for a Big Gulp. It’s not the kind of thing you’d trade for Pokemon cards with your schoolmates. It’s a serious training machine and deserves some respect.

– Dog sleds ride their Kickbike while their canine team guides them along the course.
– Enthusiasts regularly organize and attend tournaments and events across the country and the world!
