What is a kickbike?
In few words, it is a two wheeled push scooter, actually a big one looking like a modified bicycle.
And, as for “normal bikes”, kickbikes come in different styles, just depending on your lifestyle: mountain
biking, road racing, urban, freeride...
Main difference is that there are not saddle, seatpost, pedals, gears... it looks like a simplified, easy to
use naked bike. It has just a large front wheel, fork, handlebar, small rear wheel and a specially
designed frame for standing on it.
Why a kickbike?
Because its clean mechanics: No shifters, gears, chain rings, dirty
chains, pedals... just two wheels, handlebar, brakes and frame.
Because it is easy riding: No matter if you know how to ride a bike or
not, since the first kick you will be sliding.
Because it is a great workout: You will burn calories faster than riding a bike. It is absolutely joints
friendly and also smoother and easier than running. You can expect to stretch the hamstring, strengthen
the quadriceps and calf muscles and trim down and firm up the thighs and buttocks. By adopting the
proper kicking technique (lifting the knee in front) you will also strengthen your diagonal lower
abdominals and lower back.
The standing leg does a surprising amount of work and will soon get tired if legs are not switched
frequently. The muscle work (which is effectively isometric) is mostly felt in the quads, but almost all
groups of lower leg muscles are used
And just because it is different and funny.
Hannu Vierikko designed the first Kickbike in
1994 as he wanted to get fit for marathons
without joint pain.
Resulting device was an hybrid between bicycle
and scooter: front wheel, fork and handlebar
from a bike and standing platform and rear
wheel from a scooter.
This scooter allowed him a total body workout
without joints pain and more efficient than
