All The Rage: JumpX, A Pogo-Stick/Scooter Hybrid

jumpx-scooter-1.jpg

Because scooters and pogo-sticks are both cool, but not like super cool, somebody combined the two into the JumpX, a poorly named (come on -- PoGooter) pogo-stick/scooter hybrid. Does it do tricks? You bet your sweet padded ass it does tricks! You get good at this thing and you'll be catching some serious air AND getting all the neighborhood girls pregnant in no time. You might think none of them saw you jump that fire hydrant, but you're wrong, they were all watching from their windows -- in their underwear. Women love extreme sports guys. The bad news is the JumpX is currently only a Kickstarter project and still needs a bunch more people to cough up $89 (plus $10 shipping) for one with the hopes they'll make it to production. I just ordered two in case I do a trick so sick the scooter itself gets pregnant. You might think that can't happen but I knocked up a pair of rollerblades in college doing an epic rail grind.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots and the Kickstarter video with a bunch of footage of the thing in action.

Thanks to Travis, who made a list of every single piece of sports equipment and has been throwing darts at it all morning trying to see swhat other hybrids he could develop.

  • Scooter and a pogo stick? well it is kinda weird and cool at the same time I just purchased a scooter from http://www.scooterprousa.com. The site offers high quality scooter for a very affordable price.

    @hannibal there are still plenty of people who uses a scooter for it is really fun riding one.

    Also, are you really going to have a video with a bunch of lame looking kids using this thing around downtown streets without a helmet? Yeah, that's really going to get the parents all hot and bothered to go ride one.

  • kasual

    I say fund it, only because it has hilarious fail written all over it. I can't wait to see a compilation of losers falling on their face while using this thing. Also, who the fuck uses a scooter anymore. If you want to do tricks and not look like a douche bag, try a BMX or skateboard.

  • Daisy Daisyington

    FAKE!!!!

    This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

    This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max was trying to gain the attention of a great skateboarder to go on tour with him, and instead knocked over the porta potty and had to clean them.

    God that was the absolute worst video I've ever seen on Kickstarter.

  • Bear

    love that the pic has the kid jumping like 5 feet vert... and then the video is shot form an angle where clearly the kid doesn't jump over the decks, rather in front of them.

  • AdvancePlays

    Good looking product, cheesy-ass video :P

  • Closet Nerd

    They should've called it a "Pooter-Stick"; kinda sounds like slang for 'penis'
    ......just sayin

  • Pooter sounds like a half poop half toot. Like a shart.

  • Asperflux

    This thing looks cool and stupid at the same time.
    Long last the robots!

  • Jadis
