New York, NY (PRWEB) November 28, 2005
The name PUMGO comes from the words pump-and-go. PUMGO is a unique combinaiton of a bike and skatebord. Pumgo made the idea of a push-free skateboard spring to life. Will PUMGO become a popular sport? Find out by taking a test ride for yourself.
Since its inception, Pumgo has been sold by specialty toy stores like FAO Schwarz in the United States, and Tokyo Hands and Nissen in Japan. In the near future, Pumgo will be making its way to the Europe after having passed the required safety and quality tests in United Kingdom.
How does Pumgo work? Its patented 4-Wheel-Drive and all-wheel steering system allow the rider to cruise along with a simple pumping motion, similar to a see-saw. Pumgo is great for hard, flat surfaces and can reach speeds of up to 10 mph. Adjustable steering and a detachable brake give riders the freedom to customize Pumgo to make a perfect fit. Kids 7 and up and even parents can enjoy Pumgo. The large wheels and shock springs provide a smooth ride.
Pumgo is not only a great way to have fun; it’s also an excellent way to get a good workout. The Pumping motion is similar to walking up stairs. Riding Pumgo is a great cardiovascular and leg-muscle workout. Both kids and adults can get outside and have a blast without even having to think about exercise (it’s included!).
Is it hard to learn how to ride Pumgo? Not at all. Most kids learn how to ride in about 5 minutes and no skateboard experience is necessary. In fact the similarities between skateboards and Pumgo are quite limited. Both use the same style of deck (the board itself) and both ride along hard surfaces on four wheels. Beyond that, Pumgo is an entirely new experience.
Despite the simplicity of riding Pumgo, some people still have trouble finding their balance. This problem is easily solved with the Pumgo detachable tether, which attaches to the front of the board and gives new riders something to hold on to while they are familiarizing themselves with Pumgo. Land Surf Inc. also developed PUMGO practice station, similar to a stationary bicycle, holding PUMGO off the floor for you to use as an inside exercise device. PUMGO combined with this $30 practice station can function similarly as treadmill and stepper. The difference is kids have more fun on PUMGO station than other exercise equipments.
Pumgo has caught the eye of several media sources including CBS News, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Time Magazine for Kids, Washington Post and Washington Times. Most recently, Pumgo has been featured in the November edition of Boy’s Life magazine, the official youth magazine of the Boy Scouts of America and will also be featured in the December edition of Sports Illustrated for Kids.
