Jumping stilts are a combination of the pogo stick, stilts, and roller-blades. Instead of jumping up and down with the aid of a single contraption like a pogo stick, jumping stilts consist of two pogo-stick like devices mounted to roller-blade style shoes that fasten solidly to your feet. Balance, skill, and practice is needed to stay upright and perform any type of jumping stilt stunts, but once you get the hang of them, you can run faster, jump higher, and perform all types of new, wild, and crazy tricks with the aid of this unique sports equipment.
The term “jumping stilts” is another way of describing what is also commonly referred to as jumping shoes, bounce shoes, bouncy shoes, spring stilts, jumping boots, pogo shoes, velocity stilts, running stilts, power risers, kangaroo stilts and a whole host of additional nick-names.
Use the two detailed jumping stick comparison charts below to find the best kid or adult jumping sticks for you or your child. Please keep in mind that while the jumping stilts listed here have been displayed in order of their price (with the lowest-priced jumping stilts on the left and the high-est priced jumping stilts on the right), jumping stilts for sale based not just on price, but on the weight of the intended jumper. Purchasing a set of jumping stilts that is not intended for a person in the appropriate weight-range will result in a dissatisfying use of the product.
Pogo Stilts For Adults
There are three popular brands of jumping stilts for adults: Kangaroo Shoes, Airtrekker Jumping Stilts, and Poweriser Jumping Stilts. All three brands are priced in the same $290 – $390 USD price range.
If you are serious about your jumping stilt exercises and you want to get the best jumping stilts available, then it’s worth spending the extra hundred dollars to get the Poweriser Jumping Stilts, as these stilts are the most popular for adult jumping stilts riders and are the most well-rated jumping sticks currently on the market (in this price-range).
The construction materials used for the Poweriser are of the highest quality. A genuine top quality jumping stilt available at an affordable price to the end user the Poweriser consists of a thick aluminum frame with a long lasting quality fiberglass leaf spring as the backbone.
We recommend Poweriser Jumping Stilts because they come with a 12-month general warranty (six months on Spring and Rod-D parts) and they provide an exciting, fun exercise or healthy competition. More than anything else, Powerisers allow adult and teen jumpers to jump 7 feet high and run 20 miles per hour. It is, recommended, that whether you are an adult or a child, you wear a helmet and other safety equipment (such as knee and elbow pads, etc).
Jumping Stilts for Kids / Children
There are a number of different jumping stilts made for children and teenagers. The six main brands producing jumping stilts for kids include: Jump-Bird, Skyrunner, Kangaroo Shoes, Speaking Life Tramp It, Aitrekker and Poweriser.
Just like with the adult jumping sticks listed above, you want to purchase your child/kid jumping sticks based on the weight of your child. Jumping stilts are designed to fit children with practically any shoes size, so there’s no need to worry about shoe size when purchasing a pair of jumping stilts for your kids. But buying a pair of jumping stilts that is in the wrong weight range will not only give your child an ill-fitting jumping stilt (which could cause pain and injury to your child), but will also result in a less than satisfactory jumping experience.
