Looking for the next extreme sport? How about extreme pogo stick jumping!? All you need are some nerves of steel and a Flybar Pogo Stick.
What Is A Flybar Pogo Stick?
This isn’t your average pogo stick (pro skateboarder Andy Macdonald helped develop it). The Flybar has a complex spring system consisting of 12 independent rubber thrusters capable of producing 1,200 pounds of power. In case you are wondering, that’s enough to get a 170-pound rider over 5 feet of elevation.
The Flybar also has extra-wide footpads, with skateboard grip tape for stability and control. You’ll need that extra stability if you decide to do some backflips. Yep. We said backflips. Pogo stick jumping with a Flybar is an extreme sport.
Fred Grzybowski’s Flybar Pogo Stick Stunts
Check out this video of a pogo stick daredevil named Fred Grzybowski doing some tricks around his suburban neighborhood. His triple backflip is astonishing. The guy has some serious balls. He’s wearing a helmet, but one bad wipeout and he’d probably paralyze himself. So dangerous… but fun to watch.
If you like Fred’s backflips, then you’ll like this next video of Team Xpogo doing a series of skateboarding and freestyling hybrid tricks.
